I feel kinda nuts for doing this… considering Risen was recently released and all, but I am saving Risen a few weekends ahead since I am still studying.

I decided to reinstall Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor. One of the reasons I gave up on the game was the turn-based combat that could take forever, but I thought that with the speedpatch I could actually enjoy it. Also, when the game was released, there was lots and lots of great RPG's, which isn't the case these days.

I also had the problem with vista described in this thread, but leth's guide (post #19) helped.

This is a hardcore RPG experience, I can tell you that much. I am a bit annoyed that it doesn't support the D&D rules all the way. I can accept that there are no Wizard class, but it's annoying that an Elven Sorcerer cannot use a longbow. You also have no option which feats and skills you get. Even with the speedpatch the battles can be quite annoying. The interface is quite a nuisance and I often fail to throw a magic missile on time due to the interface.

Btw, on youtube I found a fun playthrough of the game, made by a girl named Alatrye.
