I'm also experiencing this problem. The only display mode where it works seems to be Monitor RGB, but that one gives a lousy performance when I up the resolution. :sadani:
Transparencies also don't seem to work for me. Compass-needle and grass and stuffs all have their thick black bg drawn ._.

Also using Win10, and tried it with both IntelHD and the GeForce940MX GPUs.

Hello, is there a version of the patch without the English voice acting and all benefits/fixes from the latest patch?
Sorry I am a bit confused, so there is a v2 of the patch with english voice acting, and also one called v2 with subtitled videos. The files says "Movies only".
So can i combine the v8 translation with the v2 subtitles movies to get the full translated product without english voice acting? Is that correct?

Thanks for this great patch!

*EDIT* I think I did it. First I did apply the translation patch v8, same file to both discs. Then I did the same with the 2 v2 subtitles movies files separately for disc1 and disc2. I guess that was the correct way to do it, right?

*EDIT2* Found this Review on romhacking, is that a troll or is that a accurate review of the patch?

What an unfortunate turnout. As awesome as it is to see Grand Edition translated things like magic and evolution mentions were knowingly censored out. There are also random changes to names and plot for no reason (unless they pertain to the former, then there is a reason). There are even changes both major and minor to gameplay. And yes, this came from a playthrough without the patch meant to alter gameplay. There is a patch floating around that tries to remedy some of this, but the hacker eventually gave up due to just how deep these changes went.

This is slightly better than the menu only patch out there, but don’t take what the dialogue tells you seriously.

Just so you know, you don't need to use alt for strafing. You can instead use the NUMPAD for moving/strafing and turning, it's much easier.

Haha, thanks! :D I've added his wings and polished a little bit, now. Will be painting him soon!

Had a session yesterday where they went through the termites' lair to save Sandler. They snuck past some termite workers in the beginning there, then fought their way through as they started meeting the termite soldiers. Finally they came to the termite queen, and had an epic fight with her and the termite soldiers guarding her. After the first time, they managed to stop her from calling for more reinforcement, and finally managed to kill her and save the kid!

They had dinner with Krola and Sandler, did som business with Celffy, then went to find the pirates' treasure! Fought a skeletons dropping from the ceiling and rising out of treasure chests, and collected their just reward! On their way to the waterfall to use the skull key, they found the mother kraken in her lair, and managed to take out her as well, much due to a single player using the right spells for the fight!

In the end it was an amazingly fun session! I had made a map for the termite boss battle and termite minis the day before, although the queen herself was a simple cardboard cutout. :P

Here are my termite minis. I also gave them antennas, as real life termites have them.

SOM Guides, FAQ and Help / No selector highlight in in-game menu

Hello everyone! Let's get straight to the point. This is how my in-game menu looks like: https://i.imgur.com/GK1XazV.png

So as you can see, currently selected option isn't highlighted, which makes navigation in in-game menu a living "trials and errors" hell. The same goes for "change equipment" menu.

My specs:
  • Intel i3 processor,
  • 8GB RAM,
  • Intel HD 520 GPU,
  • Windows 10 OS

Any help will be appreaciated.

To Ioskeha:

Can you tell me what I need to do in order to configure vJoy to make the trigger buttons usable? I've downloaded it but have no idea on what to do. Also, I'm using a XBox One controller and as of now:
  • d-pad doesn't work (can move with left stick only, which kinda sucks),
  • trigger buttons don't work.

That's odd.  The game worked fine for me.  You don't use the mouse at all--its pure keyboard controlled, with a control setup similar to Wolfenstein 3D.  Space opens doors, Alt toggles strafing, control uses an attack spell, shift attacks and tab opens the menu.

What OS are you playing on by the way?

What's this Limestone Cavern glitch?  I only have the game on PS2 and I don't recall running into any major glitches but it was a long time ago that I played it.

General Discussion / Is this normal? (KF1SOM)
« Last post by EdmondDantes on September 06, 2017, 11:39:38 PM »
So I have an old machine I play Windows 98 games on, and thought "why not try King's Field 1 PC?"

It seemed to run fine but some of the text was glitched.  In particular, one of Eric Baccus' (the second shopkeeper on the first floor) lines showed up completely garbled, and money displayed at first as .f (Period followed by an F).  I tried installing foreign fonts and Microsofts English-Japanese IME, and it... changed the font, but now money is * F (Asterisk-F, or at least a dot that I think is supposed to be an asterisk).  I haven't restarted to see if Eric's one line was fixed.

I was just wondering if this is normal for the PC version in Windows 98, or is there some additional font/software I should install, or do I have to actually install the SOM software itself (currently I only have KF1 installed)?

I'm also running the game in 800x600 16-bit color (I have a Voodoo 3 2000) if that makes any difference.  This comp is 700mhz and 512mb of ram, so its pretty maxed out for a Windows 98 SE comp.
