Default How to turn off Torch?

October 8th, 2009, 05:52
I have made the nameless hero carry a torch, but how do I make him put it away?

Unless I'm mistaken, I don't believe you can stow a torch once you've lit it.

Can you imagine what would happen if you lit that trans-dimensional pocket you've got?

I just drop it by pulling out my weapon.

I've only been able to drop torches. Can't seem to extinguish them once they're lit. You can drop a torch by right-clicking.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?

Lol, that would be awesome, if half your inventory turned into burned crap if you did that. Oops!

Any 'Monkey Island' Fans here, would remember how the hero managed to put everything into his pants; crowbars, monkeys, etc.

i can drop the torch by right-clicking the mouse but it doesn't seem to extinguish itself unlike previous Gothic games. is it the same for everyone else as well?

Yes, you drop the torch by right-clicking - and it's by design that you can't extinguish them.

It's a "realism" feature that you can feel what you like about, but I personally think it's slightly more annoying than beneficial.

Dungeons are all very dark and I think a little more flexibility is in order for non-mages, as the disadvantage of not being able to fight with sword and shield whilst holding a torch is too big, when you consider that mages have near infinite light sources that are non-intrusive in terms of combat.

Sure, you can always gather light scrolls - but I find them not lasting long enough to want to waste them on a constant basis. Also, savegames don't take the dynamic light sources into consideration - so you lose your light spell upon saving if you reload.

But anyway, a minor point.

Default You can Extinguish the Torch

Yes, you can but in an unconventional way. All you have to do is Quick save and jump into a near Deep Water. and you will be teleported to the last save point with the Torch back in your inventory.
