You mean to tell me the entire time I was developing Penultima I had the “Game Difficulty” slider set to EASY?!
Oh, man, that totally screws up things… no wonder I thought Pest Control was simple. No wonder I was able to dish out 20+ damage in a round — I thought it was just because I was really l33t.
Well… I haven’t had any difficulty complaints since then, so… I guess it scaled. But don’t expect Clucking Hostile to be released until like more than a week! I’ve gotta re-test the whole thing at normal frickin’ difficulty now. Keeerist… the sooner I get those books and learn what the hell I’m supposed to be doing rather than flying by the seat of my pants, the better!
See previous post for more enlightening yadda. I just felt the urge to share. (scratches head) hooboy.
