    The Casino jackpot glitch is making me want to break things. 3 glitched creatures hanging around my dungeon heart taking all the gold and refusing to do anything else. I eagerly await your release to end this tomfoolery.

    I can't actually fix the glitch, I can only reduce the chance of it happening, which is what I did. It's 1 in 32767 chance regardless of Happy or Rigged setting, which is the lowest possible chance I can set it. For comparison's sake, in vanilla, when set to happy, it's 1 in 5000. When set to rigged, it's 1 in 20000. I did try to fix it before, but it only caused the game to crash whenever someone went to the Casino.

    I do recall there being something that controlled the amount of Gold they recieved from jackpots in the level variables, but I don't remember 100% and I'll have to look through the whole list again. I can try to do some other things like make it so they collect no gold from a Jackpot, but I can't promise anything. It could be something hardcoded into the game, as I've found to be the case for a number of things. If that is the case, then it's far beyond my power to fix.

    Eh, that sounds like enough of a fix to me. But it's done when its done, I can wait.

    So I have the patch itself done, I've just been doing some thread related work to get that all done before I release the patch. I would be done already if it weren't for a series of delays that occurred over the weekend due to personal reasons, inconveniently whenever I tried to work on the thread. I don't really want to wait until I complete the thread as I have a good chunk already done, and I'm getting a bit frustrated with things just slowing me down, so I'll be posting the patch sometime today.

    I'll update and finish the thread whenever I can after I post the update.

    I checked out the released version and it seems that I had already changed it so... it'll be the same in the update, unfortunately. It also means that if you were playing the released version of the patch, you got extremely unlucky for it to encounter three times in the same game. One time is unlucky enough, I rarely see it happen myself, including when it happens to AI Keepers.

    The new, updated Patch demo is here! Download [Link]

    The thread, as mentioned, is incomplete, but it is mostly complete and I will get to finishing it eventually. You can still check out what's there for the time being. The Hero articles, however, will likely be rewritten as I haven't gone through them in my editing.

    I would like to sticky this thread, as the GIM is also stickied, but I think it would be fair if I wait until I finish the thread, first.

    This should cover the majority of the changes that have been made since the last patch. So much has happened that it is kind of tricky to get them all down.

    General Changes

    Creature Changes

    Hero Changes

    Creature Spell Changes

    Room Changes

    Keeper Spell Changes

    Trap Changes

    Level Changes

    I like a lot of changes, everything looks very reasonable (number-wise). I am looking forward to playing this some time soon.

    Haven't played DK2 in a long while, since I simply didn't like the game enough to get through the hassle of getting it to work properly on a modern machine, but these changes seem to address many of the issues I have with the game so I'm going to give it a try.

    Yay. Now I just need to get Moth to play it and then I'll know my patch can overcome anything.

    Don't cheer too soon. Have been trying without too much success,... Had an installation working from here not too long ago that still kept crashing, and now installed a fresh copy of dungeon keeper silver I don't get working(followed all steps in the troubleshooting forum). In either case, both are already patched to 1.7 which you advice against. Not sure how I can get hold of a 1.3 version(I don't think I still have my hardcopy), so I think I'm going to give your demo a go on 1.7 anyway.

    Edit: Read the readme, won't work, too bad. Guess I'm going to look for the old cd or give up again.
