What timer thing? Are you sure you're not talking about KQIV?

I would guess that he's referring to the fact that you only have a set amount of time after Manannan falls asleep or "goes for a stroll" to sneak out and get all your tasks done before he wakes up/gets back.

I thought he meant the day/night cycle in KQIV. I never had a problem with the wizard catching me(I saved often). That mountain on the other hand...

Yeah, the thing about the wizard showing up. :P  I never played much of KQIV, there was a timer in that too?  :o

Half the game took place in the day, and the other half in the night(it even had clocks, so you could tell the time). If that's not a timer, I don't know what is.

I consider KQIV one of the hardest games in the series, only the first was harder(Rumplestiltskin).

Do you die if you take too long to complete it? ???

I'm not sure(I don't think I ever ran out of time). Since the fairy was dying, and only had 24 hours to live(if I remember correctly), if you didn't get her amulet back. If she didn't get the amulet in time, I think she's the one that died(without her, you're father also would die, and you'd be stuck on that island, so you would probably die).

Keep in mind, it's been a long time since I played the game, so I've forgotten a lot of the details(maybe even the part where I ran out of time XD ).

KQ4 IS timed - if you take too long finishing it, the game is over and you get a sad message about how your father and Genesta have died and evil will rule Tamir forever (oddly enough, even if you've already killed Lolotte at that point) :S


Hmm, that Salad Shooter DOES sound tempting... but I'm afraid the only way anyone would ever hire me as an artist is if they were completely blind. Or really fond of badly drawn stick-figures :P

Yikes, I really dislike timed stuff.  KQ9 has a few timed puzzles & sequences, but no timed missions or chapters. :pleased:

Yeah, especially when the whole game is timed - if you waste too much time in the begining you might reach reach the end a couple of minutes short, and have to restore to a much earlier game to catch up :-\

Truth is, at first I thought the KQ4 time was event-driven since I used a walkthrough :-[
But it's only partly so - you can see the timer if you check the clock at the haunted mansion (use "look time" rather than "look clock") 8)

we would like to make some close ups and cutscenes for KQ3 VGA, and we'd like some artists to help us create original pieces for these cutscenes.

See!?

Thay said they wanted you to join the KQ3VGA project.  :suffer:

I actually quite liked this once i found out i had a timer (left the game on for most the day then suddenly it ended hehe) as it added real urgency to what you were doing. The game didn't take more than 24 hours to complete and any sane adventurer in those days kept PLENTY of previous save games.

I keep plenty of saved games too. :P  But I still wouldn't enjoy a game that's timed, unless the day/night cycle is like KQ2+, where it's fairly obvious when the timed sequences start and end.  ;D

First 12 hours of the game=day(pretty birds)
Second 12 hours of the game=night(zombies)

or something similar to that. :-\

I'm sorry people lied to you!!!!!


Actually, I believe most post called just for 'artist' so perhaps your name is really just Artist?

Anyway, besides the stupid wordplay, Kimmie, if you're at all interested about doing some art for KQ3, it would be closeup/cutscene stuff - please EMAIL or PM me, and I could discuss this further with you, to let you know what kind of ideas I have.... so hope to hear from you.

I thought the music was great in KQIV and I did not take so much time that I died.  How much time does this game give you.  In KQIII the continual timer was a problem for me because you needed to have things done fairly quickly.  I found KQIII a challenging game because of the timer that ran on the main bar on top of your screen.  I really hope AGD does a KQIII + to explain more about the Father.

Oddly, I didn't find out about the timer, until the second time I played it. XD
