It sounds like TGC and Tilted Mill are two different companies. Did TGC buy the rights to Hinterland? Does anyone have an idea why they only want to release it in Europe?

Topic: Suggestion To Tilted Mill: Tag Town Fighters
Replies: 6
Views: 3412

I'd recommend against having special town members like your merchant or some spell casters set to fight. If the merchant dies, it might be a while before you get a new one and during that time you can't sell anything and lose out on a lot of gold production. Other characters like priests can be expe...

Topic: How do you equp casters?

I find the best way to level up your caster's attack is to equip them with rusty daggers. If you use a 2H weapon they will kill the enemy too fast to level the ATT skill much. If you don't mind waiting a little and have all healers, you can equip them all with heavy armor/sheild and wand/staves and ...

If any of you are eagerly awaiting Diablo III and need an action RPG fix, you should give Torchlight a try. It was produced by people who used to work at Blizzard North and other places. The team worked on Diablo I, Diablo II, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion, Fate, Mythos, Hellgate: London ...

Just because you can't stack prayers doesn't make them useless. Basically you can't have both a high priest and light priest using a prayers like Sun God or Gods of Protection at the same time since the prayers don't stack. All you do is have one use Sun God and the other use Gods of Protection so y...

Some armor and shields slows spell casting down so you should only equip your casters with armor and shields that speed it up.

Views: 3508

Any party can be successful if you use the right tactics. I make my character a tank with 1-2 healers and 1-2 melee depending on what I find. Ideally 3 healers make the best party, but it takes too long to find good equipment and get the gold required to hire them. Healers fight just as well as all ...

Hardcore is exactly the same as difficult except that the game is over when you die. Enemy camps are random, but follow a theme for the game. For example, if you have one monster type in a camp you're much more likely to encounter that monster type in other camps. I don't want to spoil your fun, but...

Stores in the US are not supposed to sell returned items for the same price as something new unless the item is clearly marked as returned. Usually a returned item should have at least some small discount. You can save a lot of money buying used games in the US. It is really common to buy used conso...

Hinterland is not a multiplayer game and you don't need an ID to install it. Some companies like Microsoft make you validate the Product ID number or the product will stop working after a certain period of time--usually 30 days. At Game Stop you can't easily tell if the game has been returned or not...

I'm going to assume you bought Hinterland: Orc Lords from Game Stop since that is the only place I know that sells to retail version. I'm sorry you don't like it. You can find Game Stop's return policy here. http://www.gamestop.com/gs/help/Returns.aspx If $10-20 is too much for you, I'd suggest down...

Merchants and other characters will generate x gold only when in town and uninjured. The amount of gold generated can vary depending on what items you have characters equipped with. From experience I discovered that the bullhorn never wears out unlike the luck charm. Also some character classes and ...

I don't remember Windows 1, but Windows 2 was a piece of junk. Even back then it was absurdly slow. Most people preferred Norton Desktop over Windows 2. The Mac was by far the best GUI and worked a lot better than either of those. Back then most PC users were hard core DOS fans who hated the idea of...

Hinterland: Orc Lords only $9.99 on Gamestop

It is currently out of stock, but I'm surprised to see the game's price drop from $20 to $10 since the CD version only came out 2.5 months ago.

Not every CD/DVD will work in every CD/DVD drive. Hopefully your computer and your wife's laptop are on a network. If so you can share the laptop's DVD drive so you can install it on your PC. An easier method is to copy the CDs contents to a flash drive and install from the flash drive, but Keith in...

If you find the game too easy, there are lots of ways you can make it more challenging. 1. Never use the space bar. 2. Fight without any items equipped. 3. Don't use followers. 4. Beat the game by day xx. 5. Modify some of these suggestions like use no healers if no followers is too tough. Respawnin...

Thanks for the info Jeff. I'll try concentrating on defense again with a few characters. I tried to make defensive characters a few times in the past, but they got beat up and I died more often than those with a strong attack. Also seeing the posts from AMP sing the praises of defense then go on to ...
