Default M&M VII, party choice…

March 5th, 2012, 21:45
Yep, the spell was improved. Actually, I think the improvement was made in MM6, but I'd have to look it up to be sure. Makes it even tougher to walk away from using a sorc in your party, but that means other abilities have to be sacrificed.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Well, just a small update!

After wrestling with a couple video quirks, I have the game running flawlessly. Yay.

I created the aforementioned KTCS party, completed the tutorial, and afterward came to find my characters' voices fairly boring! So, I created a new party with the same classes but different voices… and after couple hours into the main storyline, I again got that itch to reroll - this time because I wasn't really liking how only half the party got magic and how it made (gameplay) choices so black & white. So, I rerolled AGAIN! This time as Archer Monk Cleric Sorcerer… with an even better layout of voices.

And I'm having a blast. Graphics be damned, there's just something about this style of game that's really fun. The wonderful soundtrack helps too.

Open world exploration with a full user created party using a fairly deep character development system. hard to beat.

Turn-based to boot

Makes me wish for Wizardry 9.

There is actually a very good mod which improves the gameplay and gives more options that I recommend for a second playthrough.

If God said it, then that settles it!!

Just curious.. what OS?

Also, is that the GOG version, and is it letterboxed?

Windows 7, 64bit. I ran into sound "popping" issues using software rendering, so I'm using hardware rendering. It is indeed the GoG version, patched with the Greyface patch.

As for resolutions, it only comes in one flavor: 640x480 You can either play in a window, have it stretched to fit your monitor, or maintain 4:3 aspect ratio by forcing it under your video card settings. Personally, I opted for the stretching… With how the game's interface is set up, the larger "view window" is welcome.

-VS-

Edit: …that stretched image looks a lot worse than it feels!

Sounds fun!

I prefer to play it real time though, it's generally a lot faster. I also find it easier as kiting is rather easy.

What do you guys think of:

Knight Thief Cleric Sorceror (strong but this just seems so mundane a makeup!)
Monk Thief Cleric Sorceror
Knight Monk Cleric Archer
(seems like it would be fun but I'm worried about no Lloyd's Beacon and only expert Disarm)
Well first of all Lloyd's Beacon is a waste of money and never used ! The Disarm part i agree with you.. atleast Master is needed.. Though you can "bug" the game and survive with 1-10 hp with 1 character when getting hit by a master trap chest with only expert disarm.. try switching the character who opens the chest and reload some times.. might help

BUT! i like your monk class, it rox, though it isn't the easiest way to complete the game.. but having a Cleric and Knight as well is noobish (sry to say).. go for Monk, Archer, Druid and Paladin.. then you have little tank, lots of utilities and no GM Merchant or Shrap Metal.. Still the Archer gives you master fly and master invisibilty and Town Portal and the Druid can give you usefull permanent stats when GM Alchemy

And btw, Knight Thief, Cleric, Wizard isn't just strong.. it's the easiest way to complete the game, therefor the best team composition you can get

There's actually a few people working on making mods and updating the MM series here:

I've played through BDJ's mod and enjoyed it. Waiting on the total remake to get a nicer viewing experience…one day.
