Is DarkStone any good? |
Would you recommend it to a friend?
What do you like? What do you NOT like?
| If you have downloaded the ds_editor, then you have the best darkstone cheat that there is. After you have loaded the game, do not put all the patches in, nor the new quest for the cheat will not work. What I did was installed the game, and only put in the patch 103. Then I started the game, and picked who I wanted, the thief, saved the game, and then hit alt and tab at the same time to get you back to windows.|
I opened the ds_editor and in options picked the 103 setting and then pressed refreshed. Low and behold, there was the way to increase my level to 47 to start, and all the money I wanted.
You can do this for each character you want. After doing this, I un-minized the game, and leveled up, and then re-saved it for each character I did this to. Then I got out of the game, and added the rest of the patches and the new journey. So much easier to play the game when you can start at a higher level and lots and lots of money.
|The spell of choice for magic users ||100%|
| The spell of choice for magic users, especially between levels 1 and 20, is the Magic Bomb. This is a magical contact grenade that you can drop directly onto your enemy's head, even from around a corner or through a wall. I never saw a monster resist it, and it does around 30 to 70 points of damage per hit.|
|3. Earn More Money ||100%|
| - Of course you want to use a character with the Trade skill to do all the buying, selling, and repairing (if you have one). But if you have the character with Trade skill pay the lacksmith to repair all your items before you sell them you will actually get MORE money. He gives you a discount on the repair and pays your more for the fully repaired item than what he would have paid before + the price he charged you to repair it.|
|How to be a millionaire ||100%|
| Different combinations of characters can complement each other very well, take a Warrior/Amazon, and a Thief/Assassin, and you can get rich really fast. First, have your thief's steal skill be reasonably good (doesn't fail so often) and you warrior's repair skill reasonably good (doesn't fail too often) and proceed to the dungeons below. Since the equipment you steal from the monsters is usually better than the stuff bought at the blacksmith, all you have to do is repair the second-hand equipment with your warrior and sell it off to the blacksmith!|
Know that the further you progress in the game, the more money you will be making, but the tougher the enemies. Hence, you will have to find out ways and tactics to keep alive and steal. Happy hunting!
*** Stealing from the NPCs will get you nowhere; you need to be daring and steal from the monsters for the good stuff.
Tell your computer-controlled character what spells to cast:
First, temporarily switch to the character you want the computer to use, select the spell from the spell book. Next click on your blue bar, your mana bar, it is right beside your red bar, or hp bar.
Notice a line? The top part of the line is how much mana you want to allow your computer-controlled character to cast with, the bottom part is reserved, just in case you have a spell which consumes HUGE amounts of mana. That is it, switch back to your character and let the teamwork begin!
|Extra gold ||100%|
| Begin a new game and give all money from one character to the other character (money holder). Start another new game, and select the money holder as one character and create an|
entirely new character. Transfer 1500 gold from the new character to the money holder. Repeat as needed to build your gold total.
|tired of getting killed ||100%|
| Are you tired of getting killed over and over by spike traps and mines while you are trying to get to the treasure? The problem often can be solved by one or 2 Scrolls of Telekinesis, or a Scroll of Teleport. They cost a few gold pieces, but can save you a lot of time.|
|2. Permanent Magic Door ||100%|
| - If you want to keep your magic doors from crumbling when you go back through them, when returning through the door from town use the character who did NOT create the magic door to enter the portal. If you are in a multi player game, 2 characters can both make a magic door then return from town using the other guy's door instead of your own. This way you can keep them open and use them over and over.|
|Easter Egg ||100%|
| When playing as the thief, you can steal from the chickens in town. Your reward is entirely appropriate. :-)|
|Avoid player killer problems ||100%|
| Use the following steps to save your game when playing over a network. Copy your save files to another directory that is outside of the DarkStone directory before joining a network game. To restore a save, reload DarkStone from the CD, then copy the saves from the outside directory. *** Make sure all 3 saves are copied.|
|Basic tactics ||100%|
| Eat! If you get too hungry, your characters will start losing hp. Know that the value of armor or weapons decreases as the max duration and current duration decrease; always repair if you have the skill before selling equipment off.|
Characters can grow old and their stats will start dropping like mad. You start off at 20 years; you must find ways and means to prolong their youth.
Every monster has its traits, meaning each monster has its own pattern in attack, movement, etc. Knowing your enemy well will result in more efficient kills.
Use your skills! Each class features its different skills; use them well. They can really help a lot!
To set spells, simply press the numbers 1-5, bring up your spell book and hold shift while clicking on the spell you wish to place under the number.
|Play Music in MP3 Player ||100%|
| Because the music in DarkStone is stored in MP3 format, rename the file (giving it an [mp3] extension) to hear it in your MP3 player!|
|Playing as Thief ||100%|
| Steal from the chickens to get a good reward :)|
|New Song ||100%|
| In a single player game toss coins in the Bard's tray in the center of town.|
|The "croak" tactic ||100%|
| If heavily overpowered by a ungodly powerful enemy, use a long range offensive spell or weapon to keep our of harm's way.|
If he has long range offensive capabilities as well, attack, dodge, attack, dodge, etc. Croaking will get you through the harder parts of the game.
|Money Trick ||100%|
| The fastest road to easy money is by beginning a new game with 2 monks. Transfer both the money and book of resurrection to one monk then quit the game. Start a new game with that same monk and another new monk, repeating the process until inventory is full of books and money. Ideally transfer books to a fighter with a good trade skill and sell all the books bringing in a total of about 180,000gp. Deposit gold and repeat. Mmmm.|
|Infinite food trick ||100%|
| During the horn of plenty quest, you can right-click on the horn to get some nice pieces of chicken! Also, the forester skill can get you lots of fish too, use it on a pond to fish!|
|Create Two New Monk Charaters ||100%|
| Start am single player game with these charaters. Then sell their copys of Ressurection for lots of Cash. Then give the money 2 one charater. Start a new single player game with a 2 new monks. Deletee the charater (MONK that has no money) and repet with the new monks. Then make the charater you want and start a new game with the really rich monks. Take their money and start a new single player game with another new charater. I did this 13 times and ended up with over 100000 gold.|
|The Time Orb ||100%|
| The Time Orb, once you have it, still will not do you a lot of good in the battle against Draak. It has only one charge, and its effect doesn't last long. You have to do hundreds of points of damage to Draak in about 30 seconds if you want to win the fight.|
|1. Surrogate Pool Drinker ||100%|
| - If you switch to solo mode and leave the character you are not using at a mana or health pool, whenever you get low just switch to the character by the pool, walk a short distance from the pool, then click on the pool and before the character gets there to take a drink switch back to the other character and that one will get their health or mana filled instead of the one by the pool.|
|Defeating the dragon ||100%|
| When attempting to defeat the dragon make sure you have around twenty invisibility spells. After the cinematic run backwrds fast and use invisibility. Then run back to the throne area and try to lure the dragon into a position behind a wall near the entrance to the area...sounds hard but can be done. Then when he is stuck you use a ranged weapon, not magic, to kill the evil thing. when its dead, go into the locked aare ussing the key tht it drops nd pick up all the gold. you will be a millionaire!|
