    Sounds correct. I've only played through the launcher and mine looks right.

    If you didn't get or missed the email GOG have introduced user profiles and the default settings were too open for my taste so you may want to take a look in privacy and settings for it.
  3. Thanks. Plus points for having Pool of Radiance on the cover, looking forward to reading the piece on it.

    I had a great time with this game. It’s the first one my kids (aged 7 and 9) have been interested enough in and not put off by complexities to pick up the controller and play. We’re on the second play through now. They love the sound, visuals and the different elements that get introduced to help or hinder as you go through. It’s fascinating to watch them experience it as a first game with no preconceptions about what it should be or comparisons with any other game. The simplicity of the controls and puzzles really helped them to see the joy of gaming. It will always hold a special memory for us now.
  5. Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know.
  6. Glad to hear this is coming to consoles soon. A slightly off topic question but I couldn't find a thread for the first one...Divinity Enhanced Edition is on sale on both GOG and the PS Store. So I'm weighing up whether to get it for my PS4 Pro or my 2010 27-inch iMac. Does that one work well with the control pad too? Or would a keyboard + mouse set up be the better experience? From my limited understanding of spec requirements they should both be fine for running it nicely. The iMac is: Processor Name: Intel Core i5 Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 8 MB Memory: 4 GB Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 5750 Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 1024 MB and the recommended spec reqs (from Steam): RECOMMENDED: OS: OS X 10.11.1 Processor: Intel i5 2400 or higher Memory: 8192 MB RAM Graphics: Intel Iris Pro or discrete video card Storage: 10000 MB available space Additional Notes: HFS+ case sensitive partitions not supported Thanks.

    I've been doing a bit of research on crowns and came across this site. If i understand it correctly it identifies investigations and other quests where a particular crown has been found more often. It's not the only place you will find them but should increase your chances. https://mhcrown.com/mhworld/world/

    Sent you a friend request, I'm Valis358 on PSN. I'm not on voice comms so text and shortcuts for comms if that works for you. @Danno next time you are on could you post the session code again please, I'd like to get an invite to the rllmuk squad you have set up too.

    Thanks, interesting to know how it was in previous versions, I didn't realise a different approach was taken in this one. I didn't mean to suggest it does need raids to get people together I didn't want a game that forces you to team up to experience everything, just that it doesn't seem to have any way of pulling people together for mutual benefit and group fun. The event quests for special armour like the Aloy or SF stuff has come closest so far but it's quickly done and dusted.

    I was thinking along similar lines about the multiplayer aspect of the game, but I'm not sure it's "tacked on" I assumed this was the way MH has always been? Maybe it works a lot better with big random squads. I was amazed at the comment in the Edge review about the gathering hub being "the place to be" and adding to the "convivial atmosphere surrounding one of the friendliest multiplayer games around." I didn't want the game to be reliant on multiplayer to make progress and be fun but it now feels more suited to lone wolf play with the occasional answering of SOS calls if I want to farm an event. The amount of choice in what to do is partly its undoing in the stage of the game I'm at, there's no convergence on an objective or small set of objectives like raids or dungeons in other MMOs.

    This game is a hard one to use hours played as a benchmark for progress. There's so much choice in what to do. Personally I've ignored the quest line for the last week or so and really enjoyed gathering bits for a nice longsword set. Or maybe I'm just scared of Nergigante...

    I can't speak for everyone else but no I did not speak to the housekeeper to get them, and neither did CheekyLee. Like you I looked at the online guides which said the housekeeper was where you got them from but the ones I watched did not actually show them being collected there, just saying things like "this is where you should get them but I can't see them yet". It was supposed to be some sort of phased rollout so it may appear yet for you. Good luck, it was bugging the hell out of me until they arrived.

    They should appear the same way as your login bonus. You don't claim them like the fair wind charm pre order item (for example). Mine took ages to arrive but then popped up a day after the patch to fix it.
