  • Fixed a problem where movement using the mouse was slower than desired.

Other Windows Issues

Getting Boutell In Castle Aethdoc

When you are playing Romans and try to recruit Boutell in the cell in Castle Aethdoc, if you are in combat mode, Boutell will not join your party and special encounters in the area will not work correctly until you leave and return. This will be fixed in future versions of the game. In the meantime, make sure you are not in combat mode before you recruit Boutell.

Nethergate: Resurrection for Windows CD Full Installer Problem

Other Macintosh Issues

No Longer Works on Macintosh OSX 10.12 or Later

Alas, this game no longer functions in Macintosh OSX 10.12 or later. It was developed before 2008 using the Macintosh code base at the time, but Apple has stopped supporting it in newer versions of the operating system. We hope to someday remaster this game to work on newer versions of the Mac OS, but it’s a large job and it may take a while to get to it. We’re sorry that we don’t have better news.

Installing Macintosh Games From CD Error: "Requires admin privileges to run."

A small number of people using Snow Leopard have found that, when they try to install the full game from the CD, the installer quits with the error "This installer requires admin privileges to run." This happens even when they have admin privileges. This problem has inflicted a large number of installers and, alas, some of Spiderweb Software's games are affected.

There are two workarounds for this problem. One of them is to install the demo and request a new registration code here:
http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/support/newkey.html
Getting registration keys is always free.

There is a second, more involved workaround. Insert the game CD and carry out the following steps:

1. Open the Install file. A window will open with the game art and an installer with the game icon. It will have a name like "Install Avernum 6 (Full)". Drag this installer onto your desktop.
2. Hold down the Control key and click on the installer. A menu will come up. Select "Show Package Contents."
3. Open the Contents folder. Open the Resources folder.
4. Open the file "installscript.plist" If it asks you what program to open it with, choose TextEdit.
5. Scroll down until you find these lines:

<key>Require Admin</key>
<string>TRUE</string>

and change them to

<key>Require Admin </key>
<string>FALSE</string>
6. Save and quit TextEdit. The installer should now work.

This is an ugly situation and an ugly workaround, and we apologize for it. We wish this hasn't happened, we will do our best to make sure CDs printed in the future don't have the problem, and we desperately hope that Apple fixes this problem in an upcoming operating system update. The installers are written in a format provided by Apple, and their refusing to run even on an account with proper privileges is a serious problem.

Please let us know if you have any problems, and we will do our best to get you up and running.

Getting Boutell In Castle Aethdoc

When you are playing Romans and try to recruit Boutell in the cell in Castle Aethdoc, if you are in combat mode, Boutell will not join your party and special encounters in the area will not work correctly until you leave and return. This will be fixed in future versions of the game. In the meantime, make sure you are not in combat mode before you recruit Boutell.

Graphics Problems In Leopard

The graphics in Nethergate: Resurrection will not look right when you play the game in the Leopard operating system. These problems can be fixed by download and installing v1.0.3 or later.

Multiple Crown Problem In v1.0

When playing as the Celts, after leaving Annwn and fighting the Romans for the crown, there is a potential problem. If you then reenter the Stone Gate area, the Romans will be there again. if you fight them and get another crown, you will no longer be able to complete the quest for Cartumnus.

This will be fixed in v1.0.1. If you don't wish to upgrade, as a workaround, don't go back to fight the Romans a second time.

Nethergate: Resurrection on old versions of OS X.

Nethergate: Resurrection for the Macintosh is only supported for OS X 10.3 or later. It should be playable on OS X 10.2, but there will be some graphical glitches.

Reactivating the Character Editor

To reactivate the Nethergate: Resurrection character editor, go into your Preferences folder (in the Library folder in your Users folder) and throw away the file "Nethergate Resurrection Prefs". If your copy of the game is registered, you will need to ask us for a replacement registration code. (This is free.)
