Topic : Seven Curses of Uma - discussion page.

I am interested in helping anyone who needs help getting the first six crystals and in getting help from anyone who has managed to get the final crystal.

Topic : Saves in GOG version

Hi, same happens to me, so to fix this I use commands at the end of the target URL on the shortcut without the compatibily mode on. the commands I use are: -sortbyz: sorts out missing graphics -32bits: sorts out some lag issues which becomes "C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Darkstone\Darkstone.exe" -sortbyz -32bits and everything seems fine exept a few glitches such as on the loading screen it does not show the level name, but everything is fully playable.

Topic : Saves in GOG version

The GoG version doesn't run right on my Windows 7 machine. When using "Windows 98 compatibility", it requires the Darkstone CD, but with other compatibility modes, a lot of graphics are missing, so I can't even pick up items in Dungeons...

It can be done, try linning up, and then backing up a little, it is tough to get in just the right spot.  Are you using arrows or magic, I don't remember wich I used on that vase.  Good Luck!




[Darkstoner 22-06-2014 16:49:26]:

Ok, I see the vase in the Bloodstone Master's room, but every time I try to fire a projectile at it, it stops short of the vase and disappears. I was able to break the vases that sealed the Serenity Master's room, but unless I can somehow find a way to unseal Bloodstone by hitting the vases, I'm stuck on this save, and I'll be royally pissed if this is bugged.

There are well hidden vases to shoot, one room is in the central area, the other is one that can be seen from two different labriniths.  If you can see into a room, shoot into it.  I had to get exactly the right distance from the window, and could not see the vase, just look for the somke.  It can be done, and this is a fun level.




[Darkstoner 20-06-2014 20:36:57]:

Well, so I entered the Labyrinth of Solitude, unsealed all 4 sectors, but was only able to access the Twilight and Greenheart chambers (blue and green Master's rooms). I found a fair collection of items (some junk, 2 master's rings, a letter written in Common detailing the Torzian high council instructing the Masters to skip Uma along with them) - but nothing else. I was able to solve the puzzles that enabled access to all 4 sectors, but didn't find any vases to shoot that might let me gain access to the other masters' rooms. Any help will be appreciated.

Never mind. I passed the test and completed the pilgrimage, defeated Death, reached the crypt of Seda'aa, and stole the Ringkey to Solitude along with the Unicorn Horn and a few nice rings. More later once I explore the Labyrinth and see what I can find there.

level 24 actually, I already fully explored the royal crypts and the Upper Catacombs previously. Even unsealed and looted the Crypt of Kings. I have a blood crystal I recovered from one of the sarcophagi in the Rezath crypts on level 22, and a note detailing a clue on how to use it, but I can't seem to find a slot that will accept it.

What level are you on? Level 22 and 23 have secret passages, search everything carefully.

One last question; what's with the 'test of sagacious' in the lower catacombs? I explored what I could and defeated the undead armies patrolling the shrines, found two out of three hidden teleport pads (I think) but can't seem to find a way to enter the innermost area of the catacombs. I did find the hidden brick that unlocks the Ithanes shrine, though.

Scratch what I said, I figured it out, I was directing myself in the wrong orientation by misreading the compass directions on the eyes. I cleared out the teleportal puzzle and seized the essence of fire and ringkey to the lower catacombs from the central room along with a crapton of elixirs.

you do not need to step on each square, just count the number of squares and move to the last one, and wait for the blockage to go away.
