TSL 5 should be much more stable as it is being made in Unity. We were using a heavily modified version of Torque before so it was hard to nail down every last bug. We definitely have some very thorough beta testers, though. :)

Okay, I'm about to reinstall TSL. Should "the glitch" be fixed if I install the full build, or do I HAVE to install the episode 3 build first and THEN 4?

Give me exact instructions on what to do now that I've uninstalled.

It seems to just be an issue with the full 1-4 game being installed. If you only have 1-3 installed then you should be able to get to the ending of Episode 3 just fine, then reinstall 4 to play that one.

But the episode 3 build says (Patch Only- 500 MB) (Requires Previous 1+2 Episode Build), and seeing as I can't FIND that build...

Yeah... I don't think that build is available for download anymore. Also, there's a memory leak (the program keeps taking up more and more memory) that makes the game crash after you've been playing for a while. Have you tried saving just before the ending, exiting and restarting TSL and loading that save? That's how I was able to get the ending to play on my computer.

I CAN'T do that if the game isn't installed, and considering what I wrote in my last post I don't know if that'll work or not.

So should I just reinstall it from the full build or not?!

Okay, I'm tired of waiting... downloading Full Build and I'm going to attempt Snabbott's idea. Once I get there.

The Episode 3 installer is available at the link posted earlier in the thread here:

Thanks, Rog!

Downloading it now. So should I complete episode 3 before going to the full build or go ahead and download it right after?

Complete episode 3 using the 1-3 build and then install the patch for episode 4. That's how I got the ending for my LP. :)

Here's a save file if you need it. Just talk to the blacksmith, and the ending sequence should play after your conversation.

I still need to watch that, I'm WAAAAY behind!

So, if I ever wanted to play it again, with all that, it would be fine?

*one month later*

Well, that didn't work!

... *sigh* Your Save/Restore trick didn't work, Snabbott. I saved right before getting the Silver Moon back, restored, and got the last ingredient. Aaaaannnd.... CRASH! Again.

This is getting irritating! I'm even running the game as an Administrator (which I did to fix the "Death Scene Crash".

Any other suggestions? Please don't suggest reinstalling that 1-2-3 build, because we all know what happened last time: I got an Unwinnable situation for my troubles!

Well, the "Save/Exit/Restart/Restore" trick didn't work. And I'm not sure how to get that save file to work (I've tried both Open and Save to "tsl", neither work)...

There has to be a way!

WELDOOOOON!

I actually don't know that there is a real fix for getting past this. It doesn't happen to everybody, in fact it never happened to anybody in testing and I've never been able replicate said bug on any of my computers either during testing or since the release.

You- YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!!

 :(  :'( >:( >:( >:( >:( :o

So... does this mean I won't EVER see that ending?!

*exasperated sigh* Yes, I realise both Rosella and Toegoff have shown it. BUT! That, to me, isn't good enough since LPers talk.

And if it doesn't work on my laptop, what are the odds it'll work on my desktop (which I haven't actually done, since it seemed to go rather slow in downloading) either?

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

*sob*

I... I want to try one more thing (unless I somehow find either the programming code stuff for episode 3 or find another solution I hadn't thought of yet).

I want to try downloading the game onto my desktop PC. Snabbott, you mentioned it worked on yours. Were you trying the game on multiple computers, or just one? If it's the former, then perhaps it's just my laptop that's big gin' out on me. I've had that happen a few times before with certain games. The AGDI remakes of KQ1-2-3 and QFGII don't work on my laptop, nor did Space Quest: Incinerations. Neither did Ahriman's Prophecy, but that I'm not as surprised by since that IS a game from 10 or so years ago, and it barely works on my desktop (mainly something is wrong with the save game option, even though it was working until recently!)

..."Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded."

...

...

................

DAMN IT!!! I don't know how to fix that, you stupid machine!

I'm sorry you're having so much trouble, GrahamRocks. :(

That sounds like an Internet Explorer error. See if this helps:

If you still have the installer on your laptop, you could put it on a flash drive and move it to your desktop that way.  :-\
