Other Windows Issues

Stuck In Bulwark Inn

If, somehow, you manage to kill Master Hoge before you reach Dhonal's Isle, you can get stuck in the Bulwark inn. To fix this problem, leave the inn, save the game, and then copy this script into the Scripts folder. On Windows, this is inside the folder Data. (This is in the main Geneforge 3 folder. To find this easily, search your hard drive for Geneforge 3.) If you have trouble downloading the script, right-click on the link.

Installing From CD On Windows Vista

Some of our older CDs have problems installing on Vista, the newest version of the Windows operating system. If you have problems, follow these steps: Insert the CD. Open "Computer" in the Start menu. Right-Click on the CD and select Explore. Run the installer program (the application that has Install at the beginning of the name).

Late Game Litalia Bug

When you are in the section with the Geneforge, when you convince Litalia to let you pass peacefully, she will still attack you. You can fix this problem by downloading this file and putting it in the Scripts directory, which is inside the Data directory. If you installed Geneforge 3 in the default location, it will be in the Program Files directory on your hard drive.

Incompatibility With MacBooks With the GMA X3100 Graphics Chip

Stuck In Bulwark Inn

If, somehow, you manage to kill Master Hoge before you reach Dhonal's Isle, you can get stuck in the Bulwark inn. To fix this problem, upgrade to Geneforge 3 v1.1 and load a saved game from before you entered the inn.

Late Game Litalia Bug

When you are in the section with the Geneforge, when you convince Litalia to let you pass peacefully, she will still attack you. To fix this problem, upgrade to Geneforge 3 v1.1 and load a saved game from before Litalia attacked.

"Unable to open sound channels" Error

If you get the error "Unable to open sound channels" when you launch the game, carry out these steps to fix the problem:

i. Open the Applications folder.
ii. Open the Utilities folder.
iii. In this folder, run "Audio MIDI Setup"
iv. Under Audio Output, change the Format to 44100.0 Hz.

This should correct the problem.

Program Not Launching Correctly On Newer Macs

Some of our older games and installers will not run properly on newer Macintoshes with certain other applications installed. Trying to run the game/installer will give and error. This problem is caused by the name of the program not ending in .app.

To fix the problem, change the name of the program so it ends in .app. If you are trying to run an installer from a CD, copy it to your machine, change the name so that it ends in .app, and run it.

Reactivating the Cheat Codes:

You can turn off the cheat codes permanently. Should you have done this and want your character editor back, this is how to restore it: If using a Macintosh, throw away the "Geneforge 3 Prefs " file in the Preferences folder. If using Windows, delete the "GF3Prefs.dat" file in the Geneforge 3 Data folder. Please note if you have registered the game, this might unregister it. If your game becomes unregistered, contact us for a new key by calling 206.789.4438 or emailing spidweb@spiderwebsoftware.com. There is no charge for this but please include the name you registered under, which game you need a new key for and your current registration code (located in the lower right hand corner of the title screen).
