A great, great game.
Only a shame that the videos are missing,
they added a nice (more) horroric & deepening touch to the game-/

You better like this game, Abandonians... or else :ranting:

Me and Wendy have been working over 9 and a half hours to get this game working. Basically EVERYTHING went wrong... Server didn't want to be a team-player... Paint Shop Pro decided to show us the finger... The review had to be sent again from Omuletzu, because the server was (as before mentioned) a bitch.... Then the screens got lost on the actual update.... and so on... and so on....

Wendy even stayed up all night in order to update the game for all of you.

So... LIKE IT! :evil:

And like it we do. Another quote from the game, which I especially remember when playing this game as a kid: "My, aren't you the handsome one." Those women in that game were 50% sl... ehmm... well... :whistle: Great game, nonetheless. Nice job :ok:

This was great title at the time. No idea how and why, but I got it on PS and it rocks. Later my younger brother lost the game, so I'm missing it ever since.

And yes, the videos added darknes to the story!!!

Griezel

23-12-2004, 08:24 PM

You need to run the crack that's part of the download.

But the problem I have is that when I start the game it stays a black screen. I hear the bartender say the place is closing (or whatever he says) but then nothing else happens. Any ideas?

I've played through all the other Legacy of Kains, but was just a little late to get this one. You can imagine how happy I was to see it here. Its like you guys have a psychic link to all the games I want to play...

it wont run i used the crack it still asks for the cd

wormpaul

23-12-2004, 09:06 PM

For me it works perfect:

For all who got dark screen and the game wont do anything anymore (with the movies in the beginning...)

Just press windows button and then go back to game...the game will continue from there on... :ok:

"Every time you come across something new (a new spell or a new story twist), the character has something to say. And the language he uses is special. I can’t really explain this, but suffice to say that the dialogue is the best I’ve heard in any game I’ve played."

- that's just Kain's special charm :sneaky:

i played this game a long time ago on playstation...it was a great game. i just downloaded it and i'm using the crack and it says i still need a CD...what do I do now?

Tom Henrik

23-12-2004, 11:30 PM

Well...

I downloaded it, extracted it to C:\KAIN

Opened the Crack.zip and overwrote the Kain.exe file. It ran like a dream with sound and all.

And if I am able to play this on my bug-infested, worm-tainted, virus-attacked cracker laptop... then I have can't imagine why it should not run on yours :unsure:

I am using WinXP.

Strobe

24-12-2004, 12:57 AM

the same goes with me...

after installing the game and copying the cracked file over the original .exe,
it ran just perfect without any problems at all...

thanks for providing that great piece of software! :ok:

Although reluctant to admit it, the credits for the review go to wendy.The review was made by me, but as she said it, she fine tuned it.This basicaly means that she is the reason you find the review a pleasant read :ok:

Question:

I`m already stuck in the game...(be easy guys...it just my second RPG after Dink) at the point that you see for the first time electric animals shooting stupid lightning things at you..

I had to defeat 3 of them to clear the room...this was going ok but after that i get stuck....the door on the left wont open (why???) and anything else i cant do...

Plz help me...because still wanna continue with the game....it's sometimes too dark in the game but for the rest:Very good...(only i would give it a 4)

24-12-2004, 12:13 PM

yep this is a great game. originally for the 3DO i believe.

the playstation version goes for VERY GOOD money on ebay. the p.c version cd does as well.
but getting this rip isnt going to hurt those sales - in fact it will make more people want them to get the videos etc.

its a PRETTY TOUGH game. dont be surprised if its hard going.

about the 'drinking blood' i dont think theyre using STICK LOL.
i think its just vampire magic sucking it from a distance in a stream

wormpaul

24-12-2004, 12:15 PM

:ot: little bit

But the women in BLOODRAYNE sucks much better in the game (sucking blood)

She makes such nice sounds when blood is coming in to her body...loving it :bleh:

The game look nice but if i try to start, the charakter dont move or do anything!! :cry: PLEASE HELP!!

xoopx

24-12-2004, 03:02 PM

some tips

F11 changes gamma
F12 changes resolution (use the highest one!)

if its still too dark with maximum in-game gamma, then you should get powerstrip and force the gamma

i dont know if it defaults to 60hz refresh (?) i think i remember it did.. but i have 75hz locked using powerstrip as well

hm.

if you have windows xp try using compatibility mode set at win95. this seemed to help when i was using a different graphics card than i use now. hm

im not sure why people have been needing to do this windows key thing in the first place.
if that isnt working, have you got some kind of program running that turns off the windows key? (logoless)?
pressing alt + tab should let you switch between programs/windows

25-12-2004, 11:12 PM

Btw, just wanna also add that you're site is wicked cool awesome and have provided me with numerous hours of fun over the last year or so; as well as keep my sanity.
Keep up the good work. :)

i didnt play halo 2 because i havent got an xbox.
but i played halo on p.c and i thought it was one of the most overhyped and overrated games ive played in a long time.

blood omen > halo

as for halo 2, i dont know.

JJXB

26-12-2004, 12:55 AM

well, the pc version was a crap conversion. far too buggy. anyway, don't compare an rpg with an fps, halo 2 is one of the best fps games i have played and fallout > blood omen (both decent rpg's)

I like colourfull games (not too dark) and a game that you really increases your character..

The only RPG i liked so far was Dink Smallwood..

This game just missed the feeling to make it a good game :not_ok:

Entomorph, Plague of Downfall /

Might be a game you could enjoy...
I cannot be sure however,
since the lack of games you´ve enjoyed in the genre,
so I´d recommend you to read the review-/

/Edit/ It balances between dark and light athmosphere (mostly slightly humoric) /-

how many fps games have you played? did you play half-life? deus ex? undying?

quake 2 is better than halo 1.
but like i say i didnt play halo 2 so it might be as good as you say.

yeah the pc version of blood omen isnt as good as the 3do or playstation versions..
also this ripped version is lacking the videos so its even worse..

used retail versions of blood omen are very sought after, and expensive to buy

well, the pc version was a crap conversion. far too buggy. anyway, don't compare an rpg with an fps, halo 2 is one of the best fps games i have played and fallout > blood omen (both decent rpg's)

there ya go. ?27 uk and still 8 hours to go.

partly its people who played all the later kain games, wanting to complete their set.. but partly its because its a good game

26-12-2004, 11:03 PM

one way to play a non-ripped version on your p.c is to get the playstation version, and play it in a playstation emulator like epsxe.
bear in mind epsxe (and most emulators for psx) takes quite a lot of setting up.
oh and you have to start the game over, of course ;)

26-12-2004, 11:07 PM

oh and i forgot, playing in an emulator = you can save at any time!

part of the reason im (painfully slowly) downloading the psx version of this game is to get the movies.. as well as hoping the collision detection is better.

-tangent-
even with the retail version of soul reaver 2 i couldnt figure out the stupid attempt at a story. after soul reaver 1, the kain series went down the toilet. the woman who writes the 'story' for the later games is clearly just making up a load of bollocks as she goes along.
although in blood omen 2, there are a couple of cool levels.. like the prison one

Thanks for the link to the script, i found it and it's gonna help heaps :D

to get new spells, new weapons, new forms, new armour you basically have to progress through the game. you dont get the mace until quite a lot of playing, and its not very useful either.. apart from breaking stones that block routes.
this is a very long game!

29-12-2004, 07:22 PM

so i finally downloaded the full psx version. i ran it in an emulator (my real psx isnt chipped) it is definately better than the p.c port. much less buggy.. the combat is so much faster and not so hit-and-more-likely-miss as in the pc version. in fact the combat is now FUN and you dont even need to drink very often.. as opposed to the pc version where you're always getting battered.
obviously having the movies helps, and also being able to save and load with f1 and f3 in the emulator is a lot easier ;)
im told that the original 3do version is the best one, however.

Hi. My Name is Christian and i live in Denmark.

I've got all other games with Kain and Raziel and so fourth.
I've played and completed the 4 other games.
And you can't buy this game in Denmark, but to my big surprise.. i see it here :D
But there is a problem, i can't get it running either, even though i bitch around with the Crack.

So my plee is that you would be so kind so to tell me/us what to do, after we've downloaded the game, directly from when it says "pling".

Thx.

i have to agree
that woman who does the "story" is just like a kid making a story up as she goes along!
the game was ok.. it wasnt as good as soul reaver 1. it didnt even look as good.
with blood omen and soul reaver 1, you could go anywhere in the game at any time. soul reaver 2 and blood omen 2 are SO linear... like a rail shooter. bleh!
i actually found a forum where these people spent all day theorizing about the messed up story in the later games and what would happen next. like it was something that had any design behind it LOL.

1)okay finished downloading, right?!
Go to directory
Extract the crack archive in the same directory where the executable is located!
Overwrite, and then enjoy
If game works then skip the next steps
else go to 2)
2)Redownload the game

DON'T RUN THE GAME WITHOUT THE CRACK!

03-01-2005, 06:17 PM

But, i have one question though.. it won't let me save, i can't press "Yes".. What seems to be the problem? :wall:

xoopx

04-01-2005, 07:30 PM

i finished it! (on playstation) it wasnt as hard as i thought. i only found 24/100 secrets ;(
having the movies or reading that transcript someone posted is important if you want to know wtf is happening.

worryingly, the story was a ridiculous and convoluted as soul reaver 2... bad guy after bad guy after bad guy, all quadruple crossing everyone else.

so out of the 4 kain games ive played, i still rate soul reaver 1 as the best

zoka

09-01-2005, 03:38 AM

Being a fan of the series I must play the first part, tryed the demo and dont you just love when kain says save victious or something I hope the series end in a good way.

It's actually spelled "Vae Victus" but indeed means something along the lines of "woe to the conquered". :)

yeah that guest guy is me sorry i wasn't logged in and yeah well the Wraith armor is ok it takes some of the damage away from health and towards the magic. the flesh armor is good when using the axes but not around things with green blood tho.

09-01-2005, 01:25 PM

one of the things that was good in blood omen 2 was kain's mist ability, although letting the knights have swords that detected you wasnt so fun :P

Hey all...can't get the game to work. Did the hack thing, it booted up, got to start menu. I hit start and I see my character in the bar, and the bartender walking. He says his little line "Better leave soon, I'm closing up" then nothing. I can't move my character and I just sit there. Any ideas???

27-01-2005, 08:27 AM

Yes...

I got the same problems :wall: :wall:

Just press WINDOWS button....and when that is loading just go back to the game (ALT TAB) or just clicking it in the lower bar and from there on you can start the game...

This bug will happen sometimes...but it`s easy to solve it :ok:

Legacy of Kain is one of the best games I have ever played! The whole "blood-sucking", "magic-droping", "ressurecting", "changing forms", part is great great great, even my little sister likes it (she fell for blood drinking) :angel: .
I realy didnt play all the series after it, but i think non of the "Kain" games will ever get close to gameplay and atmosphere like in this masterpice. A must play! :ok:

it has its flaws its true, but it does let you wander about as freely as blood omen

the later ones arent very good.

worryingly, the story was a ridiculous and convoluted as soul reaver 2... bad guy after bad guy after bad guy, all quadruple crossing everyone else.

so out of the 4 kain games ive played, i still rate soul reaver 1 as the best

08-02-2005, 04:57 AM

OK, I can't download this (of course, I am still trying to), since it would take about a week to do so.

But I have a question involving the movies...

Is the plot understandable without having the movies? Or will I have to buy the playstation game (and a playstation or PS2) if I want to enjoy the superb plots that I have heard are present in all Silicon Knights' games? (I have so far only ever played Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, and its sloryline PWNED!!!!)

MonkeeBoy

09-02-2005, 05:02 AM

I've played both the psx and abondonia versions of Kain and I'd have to say the plot makes very little sense without the cutscenes. Oh sure, you can figure out what's going on but you'd tend to have this constant vague feeling of "Did I miss something here?" Still fun to play but if you want to enjoy the well done story, hunt down a psx or pc copy on ebay or someplace like that.

I have the same problem. I guess you're supposed to hit the windows key, and then alt-tab back to the game. Somehow that doesn't work for me though - neither the windows key nor the alt-tab function seem to work while this program is running.

just keep hitting the window key until it does. Hitting it only once doesn't work, but numerous times the screen will light up.

Thanks for the reply! I've tried that though, oh yes. Twenty, thirty plus times hitting the windows key, alt-tab, Ctrl-Alt-Del, everything I can think of. The screen flickers, and I can see little clips of windows behind the game, but for some reason it won't let me out. I've tried running the game in different video modes, different compatibilty modes, nothing seems to help. It's a bit frustrating. :ranting:

Yeah, it looks like this game has problems. Is there anyone who actually can run this? I love this site, and thanks for the effort for those who went to the trouble of uploading this and all, but I think it's a dud. :wall:

Mentor

23-02-2005, 04:11 AM

Great game, but one thing I didn't like was that they don't actually pronounce Vae Victus (Woe Unto The Conquered, literal translation (Latin class actually came through for me...)) properly. It should be pronounced with a "W" sound, since the Greeks/Romans didn't have a "V" sound.

But maybe they didn't like how "Wae Wictus" sounded...

Fekkers.

Anyway, really cool game. Much better than Soul Reaver in terms of story, and only Blood Omen 2 can really equal it. That new one, where Raziel and Kain team up, is just shite.

It runs just fine off the CD in XP, for me anyway. I just can't get my controller to work with it.

Could any of the experts help me out?

So far there are two buildings I can't pass:

1) The first time where you meet those hooded orange creatures that attack you by casting a sort of blue lights that float towards you. Just when you enter that building, there are also two guys with telescopic arms.
When I've passed through the main hall, towards the right, there's a flight of stairs up. After I've taken the card for a new spell, the door through which I entered closes. Next there's a room with 3 of those hooded guys, with a door to the left but I can't open it.

2) I think this is Nupraptor's stronghold: lots of sewers, slimy pink and blue creatures crawling on the floor, etc.
After making my way through several rooms, I enter a sort of library with monks and a lot of book racks. There's one door I fail to open, but I don't see any levers I could move or anything similar.

Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated! :D

Okay, been years since I last played this on my old 75 mhz computer, but it sounds like you just got the energy bolt spell. Look for buttons on the other side of the spiked areas that you can't cross. You can hit those with the spell, opening new areas/doors.

For the second one, I think that is napraptor's stronghold. Anywho, look for any object with a aura/glow/light around it, usually colored strangely (purple, green, ect.). Those, more often than not, turn out to be switches to open doors. I think you have to specifically hit a series of chains where you currently are, but I could be wrong.

another_guest

07-03-2005, 11:10 PM

Thanks a lot! :ok:

In the first area, there was indeed a button like you describe. I had ignored it until now, thinking I'd pushed it before since it wasn't lighted.

In the second area, I had walked past the lights, but failed to see the difference in the chains after walking up to them. With the right combination, the door opened.

Apparently you've got an excellent memory :D

There is this (unofficial?) patch from http://home.comcast.net/~heavyweights/games/kain/index.htm.

Note: I have not tried it yet, so I cannot guarantee it will work. I also have not played Blood Omen before, I am hoping to be able to play it as soon as I can find some time away from current busy schedule. So, try that patch at your own risk. Oh, and I am also not in any way affiliated with the site owner. I found the link to that site from HOTU :D

Not finished downloading yet but need to comment on earlier posts.

I remember this on the PS and Kain most defiinitely does not suck blood through a stick.

If you watch the intro Vorador sucks blood exactly the same way as Kain, kick behind vampire magic.

Have you tried it multiple times? Sometimes the game hangs up for no reason, and the next time you try to do the same thing, it works.
And have you tried ALT+TAB? I don't know if this helps, but you could give it a try.

If that fails, and no one else comes up with a solution, I could send you a savegame of the first spot after that scene where it's possible to save.

23-03-2005, 10:58 AM

They are missing to save bandwidth (with the movies included, the file on Abandonia would be a lot bigger).
The only way to retrieve them, is to find either the clonecd or the original game cd.

Any ideas anyone? Do I have to burn it to a cd first or something because I simply cannot get it work. :help:

Fresh from finishing Anvil of Dawn, I finally found the time and started playing this game yesterday. I tried to play it in my Win2K machine, and the game crashed in the beginning. So I am playing it on another machine, this time with WinXP. I have not progress far, currently I am in that cave where I have just obtained a spell (or whatever it is actually) that enables me to change Kain's form into a wolf.

My first complaint is the lack of save at anytime feature. I am sure this has been mentioned in this thread, and forgive me if I mention this again since I do not have the time to read all 10 over pages. I feel that save points in the game are too few. I really hate it when I have to backtrack just to find a save point. It does IMHO ruin this otherwise good game.

I will not stop, however, and will continue to play this game until I complete it, or until it crashes (since so many people mentioned in this thread that their game crashed) :D

Hello all.

I've been trying to get my hands on both blood omen & soul reaver since... last summer

I have Blood Omen 2 (which was a bit to linear and the story was all screwed)
, Soul Reaver 2, and Defiance (I'll miss you raziel :cry: )

I've downloaded this, used the crack and everything, no worky

redownloaded, tried again, no worky

I'm going to try redownloading once more... if that dosn't work I dunno...

I'm on Windows ME... (stop laughing damnit!)

Also, I heard that all the cinematics are gone in this, is there any way to get the actual cinematic without using a PS emulator?

P.S. for those of you who take interest in the Legacy of Kain series, you might check out www.dark-chronicle.co.uk and www.thelostworlds.net

Guest

24-04-2005, 11:22 PM

Alright I got it to work, apparently the problem was because I click & drag, I don't extract :P

But its really confusing without any of the cinematics, guess I could look for a script at dark-chronicle though

25-04-2005, 01:52 AM

Okay, time to write about my second complaint of the game, which is the lack of subtitles. I know that may not be a problem to most of you, but for a non-English speaking gamer like me it can be a challenge, and although Kain does speak rather clearly still it would be much nicer to add subtitles in case I want to turn off the sound for example.

one thing hard about the game is that you have to go out of your way to find spells and stuff

in Vorador's Mansion you need mind control but you have to be curious patient and umm... an explorer to find the Mind Control spell

I downloaded your version, and applied the crack.
when i run the exe, i get a black screen, and i can hear what appears to be liquid sloshin, reminds me of a shoreline or something.
But nothing else, i hit windows key, nada, goes desktop and won't come back.

Using XP
I do hear and have an error window pop up while trying it and this is the message.

Answer to my own question: I guess I did meet Vorador, except that it happened in the movie, 'cause he showed up to fight Malek while I fought Bain and Dejoule.

By the way, usually after 10 or 15 minutes playing the game, the mouse cursor disappears. My mouse is working fine with other games, I checked by playing Dungeon Siege for one hour and Star Wars Jedi Academy for another hour. Also when I return to desktop (Alt + Tab) while playing Blood Omen, the mouse is working fine. So I figure the problem is with Blood Omen. Not a showstopper of course, but a little bit annoying nevertheless. Anybody else experiences this?

I've had the same problem with the disappearing mouse cursor. The only "solution" I found was to alt+tab, just like you did.

I don't know if this part comes immediately after acquiring the wolf form spell, but in any case very soon after that you'll find a path bordered with cliffs, guarded by a few wolves. Use the wolf form to be able to jump onto those cliffs.
Basically, try to see on which heights you can jump in wolf form, and explore any cliffs you can jump onto.

Pheew... 182 save files and I finally finished the game. I could have easily doubled or even trippled the number of the save files, were not for the fact that I could not save at any place anytime. The lack of save at anytime feature is also confusing if I did not play it continuously. If I had chosen to play it only a couple of hours one week, and continue again a couple of hours the week after, I would have forgotten my progress since I usually had to backtrack to the saving altar.

The graphics are quite nice for the year 1997. I read a review somewhere that criticized Blood Omen for outdated graphics. I disagree. I have seen games from 1997 with much worst graphics. I think Blood Omen graphics are actually quite good.

The sound, especially Kain's voice over, is excellent. I however have a complaint I already mentioned in earlier post, which is the lack of subtitles. Those who do not have a sound card, those who want to turn off the sound, those who have hearing impairment, those who prefer to read text, and those whose native language is not English (like me) might get annoyed by the lack of subtitles. Especially since sometimes Kain talked when he stepped on a vista marker while also fighting monsters and enemies around him. It's rather hard to concentrate on what he was talking about when I had to focus on keeping Kain alive from the monsters' attack around him. Nevertheless, Kain's voice over is trully an excellent thing in this game.

The combat system is flawed, as mentioned in the review. I could just stand at a certain angle (without fighting back) and not get hurt while two enemies in front of me continuously hacked and slashed at me.

The monsters respawned, but rather than being randomly respawned, they actually just *resurrected*, 'cause I faced the same bunch again and again. On one hand, it is good, giving you endless opportunity to continuously hack and slash and cast spells. You will also get renewable supplies for blood sucking. It probably also increases your prestige/level although I am ignorant on how Kain gained levels since there was no notification when he did. On the other hand, respawning monsters feature takes away the sense of clearing-the-area-from-monsters. It also gets repetitive and boring for me after a while. So I usually just turned Kain's form into a wolf so that he could run faster through the area he just *cleared*.

The replayability of this game is quite high, especially with 100 secrets lying around to collect. I think this feature might compel gamers to replay it again and again if they could not get all the secret at the first time. I, however, was not compelled enough, and I did not have the patience nor the time for replay, so I just grabbed a walkthrough and got all those 100 secrets at one play.

I found another annoying thing, which is the moon cave. The moon cave only opened during the full moon. Miss that time, and you have to wait until the next full moon before you can enter the cave, unless there is a backdoor secret entrance to that cave. I think this unnecessarily lengthens the gameplay. With my 182 save files, I spent almost 80 *game days*, of which 20 or 30 *game days* of them I actually just spent waiting or wandering aimlessly until the next full moon time.

Due to the missing videos, I was uncertain at some places, just like when I was supposed to meet Vorador.

I noticed at certain level (I think when Kain reached Overlord title) the blood vials did not increase his blood level anymore. I don't know if this is how the game is designed, or if it is a bug. I also already mentioned the problem with the mouse cursor disappearing.

Overall, I'll rate this game 3 out of 5.

Well, time to move on to play Lands of Lore.

For everyone having problems running the game (wont get past tavern keepers first sentance but he keeps walking). The problem is that we have decent CPU's. Unlike the rest of these peons who not only game in the past but have computer systems that BELONG in the past, we have modern systems and like to play MODERN games as well.

"press the windows key" it doesnt work. "you have to press it multiple times!" .... *dirty word* muppet.

Get a cpu slowdown utility like cpukiller3 (http://www.cpukiller.com/) I found 50% to work best on my AMD64 3200+. A good guide is the speed at which you are able to reliably alt-tab the game (start at 30% slowdown and work your way up till the game runs as smooth as possible whilst maintaining alt-tab ability).

Note: if the game takes ages for the screen to brighten at the start the cpu is either well to slow or not slow enough.

10-05-2005, 08:42 PM

hrmm just noticed cpukiller has an auto 20min timeout. which means your game will die midst play crashing the system. no good. time to find a true free slower downerer.

Guest

10-05-2005, 08:48 PM

Ok found a much better utility: Turbo (http://www.abandonrom.co.uk/apps.php) scroll down and find 'Turbo'. doesnt even require installation. Ran the game ALOT faster than Cpukiller or a host of others would (50% worked a treat).

Nope, it did not happen like that to me, at least not in my case. I tried the game in a computer with Win2K and it stopped after the bartender's/tavern keeper's first sentence. However when I tried in another (better and faster) computer with WinXP, the problem did not occur.

Hey does anyone have a idea of where the patch is for this game? I have the original game cd itself and I don't even get to boot up the game! I get a black screen with some noise and when I press the window button I still get a black screen with noise!

Also to boot I can't do a full install from the cd since it reports not enough hard drive space.

Damn this game!

castlevania - symphony of the night for playstation

Blood-Pigggy

11-11-2005, 04:38 PM

Symphony Of The Night is nothing like Blood Omen.
But it's still, a VERY good game.

Blood Omen on the PS is better, although the graphics aren't as great, and the framerate is a bit choppy, I definetly find the control better, and for some reason, they made the gameplay a bit more refined when it comes to the different weapons.

If you like this, the Zelda games are better to recommend, the old top downs of course.

it's very funny.

some say they got this game and it rocks.

others say they can't dl it coz it's esa-protected.

just go to google and search it with 'blood omen download'

plenty of websites to dl it.

EDIT: If it's no go, you shouldn't tell people where to get it!

i copied this for my friend and his pc has non-eng windows xp.

and he can't start the game it gives him a message saying

'locale/language select failure' something.

does anyone know about this?

Wrong on both counts. As long as the company that owns the rights to this game continue to pay ESA (and there's no reason why they shouldn't), the game is ESA-protected. However, they do occasionally make specific arrangements - we used to have permission to host it, but unfortunately we lost that permission. If it's available for download at one of the sites, it means they have permission.

it doesn't really matter, but just for sake of completeness The game didn't take place in the lands of the Nemesis. It took place in Nosgoth, the Lands of the Nemesis were to the north-east.

a15drian

28-11-2005, 01:06 PM

in the end Nosgoth belongs to Kain in his Rule ah yes i love that endind at Blood Omen 2 : " a new rule should be brought , MY RULE " nice huh

Blood-Pigggy

28-11-2005, 10:09 PM

They decided to go with the ending where Kain decides to rule, for the sequels.

In Blood Omen you could choose from two different endings, one saving Nosgoth, and the other giving Kain rule, while decomposing the land.
Guess they thought that would make better plot-lines for the sequels.

Just for the record, I don't care if it was setting up a sequel, Soul Reaver's ending was terrible, there's no reason for anyone to go through such a immersive game, and fun to boot, only to be dissapointed that all their efforts and enjoyment ended up in a ending "Oh, I'm going to run away from you, and you'll have to fight me sometime later."

Probably worse than Half-Life's ending.

the game may also be found in the stores "GIFI" for the price of 3 euro (budget collection sales).

as Fallout (1&2) are my favorite games of all time, and someone said here that Blood Omen may be just as good, you gave me the chill.
can't wait till next week to try it.

Is there ANYWAY that i can get those videos? besides having the actual cd? cause i can't really understand the story without it. T_T

plz help me!

wendymaree

22-12-2005, 01:30 AM

I believe the game is minus videos because they would have made it too huge for the site. If you read through the thread near the beginning, you'll find a previous discussion about this. I remember that Tom and I updated it, and had so many problems with it that it ended up taking all night before it was working. Was worth it, though, as it's one of the more popular games on the site.

Btw, fun-nee name *g*

Is there ANYWAY that i can get those videos? besides having the actual cd?
No. Get the CD.

There are multiple means to obtaining it, though - so don't surrender just because of it.

this game can still be downloaded from someplace else.
as for the issue where you load it and as soon as the barman stops talking you cant do anything, same happened to me and no amount of pressing the windows key and alt+tab etc. would put it right....

....UNTIL.....

I downloaded the update to Kain V1.2 - installed update to the kain folder within c:\kain (where i was running game from), then once it was updated, the game still didn't work properly, but the windows key/alt+tab fix DID start to work and hence i was able to play it...and it's as good as i remember it on my PS1.

Coincidence...I hope not.

great site by the way...

Well...i looked up page 3 and i found the exact same problem im having with this other guy...

i did the same thing...what is the windows button? i pressed the "start" button on the keyboard (i.e. between ctrl and alt) and returned to the game but there was no difference...there was no difference in pressing the start button as the screen would not let me go back to windows and i couldnt exit from the game...so had to switch the machine off.

30-01-2006, 10:03 AM

i seem to have figured out my problem and some sort of solution but its a bit dodgy...

For people having problems (like me) of gettin stuck at the tavern and not being able to move the solution was provided to press the windows button then the alt+tab button...supposedly it would allow you to get back to windows (the game minimizes) and from there you can maximize the game again and it would run properly...BUT this does not seem to work for a few of us.

Instead, when we press the Windows Start button, the game is still "mapped" onto the windows i.e. you can barely make out the desktop by moving your mouse cursor around.

What I tried to do was find (through guessing and trial and error) where the "log off" button was once the Windows Start button was selected, and select it. Then again, trial and error to log off my account. This allowed me to get out of the game without having to switch the whole computer off.

Since I have other accounts on the computer, i accessed another and immediately logged off it. Then i entered my account again (where the game was running) and there is was, minimized at the bottom of the screen. I maximize it, and it runs perfectly.

But everytime there seems to be a change of level or something (where theres this narration...i.e. it happened again at the three pillars) it does the same thing and stops me from moving around again. So then i go thru the same procedure again. This gets very tedious (logging off and on to another account and then back to my account), so does anyone out there have a simpler solution?

THanks in forward.

:help: Aaaaaaaaaaaaa well do we log off or switch user????

Menasor

31-01-2006, 03:26 PM

You have to Switch User from the place your running the game...then Log into another account...and as soon as you get into that other account, Log Off. And then back to your account. Its important that you Log Off the other account. When i just tried to Switch Userf orm the opther account, the problem wasnt solved.

You'll find the same problem happening again later during the game, but not as often, so I guess this switching of accounts method isnt really that bad.

31-01-2006, 03:32 PM

I havent yet understood why this game falls into the category of an RPG? Ive been playing a bit so far but theres no character development or npc interaction. It seems to be fairly linear and a lot of just walking around with a sword and hacking...(keep in mind that im at the point in the game where ive just turned myself into bats)...really hope theres a lot more to it...

2x POST:
OK i'ved found a better solution it goes like this:
1. OPEN THE GAME
2. START GAME
3. YOU SEE IT'S A DARK SCREEN OK THAT'S THE PROBLEM
4. PUSH THE WINDOW BUTTON
5. TRY TO SWITCH USER
6. OPEN THE GAME IN THE USER
7. START THE GAME OK BLANK AS ALLWAYS THEN PRESS THE WINDOW BUTTON AND TRY TO PUSH THE "ALL PROGRAMS" THEN IT WILL SHRINK THEN OPEN THE GAME AGAIN AND IT WILL WORK LIKE THAT :cheers:

P.S.: the problem of this game is that the game has no video clips like you know video clips i had the original game sometime and the game started with a video clip and at the pillars and at all the game when it stucks i'ved finished it yesterday and i am going to p[lay it again because it's cool

2nd P.S.: This game deserves to be an RPG game

Can you be a bit more specific? Did you try using the arrow keys?

What scene do you see when you try moving your character? (maybe post a print-screen if you can?)

Hi all,

I was wandering around, looking for a solution to my problem with the game...
It's the same one described by so many people, but the suggested solution doesn't work.

THE SITUATION:

The game gets stuck after the opening cinematic. The Bartender says his first line, but the conversation doesn't continue. Also, the game does not light up but stays dark. Kain is unmovable, of course.

MY ATTEMPS TO RUN THE GAME:

At first the game's installation did not recognise i have enough room on my hard disk for the installation. to solve this i created a shortcut to the SPLASH.EXE file from the CD, and opened it using WIN98 compatibility.

after successfully installing the game, i faced a new issue - when i tried to play all i got was a black screen and dripping water sound. the patch from http://www.thelostworlds.net/BO1-XP.HTML worked and finally i got to the game menu.

that's when my current problem takes place.

The solution of minimizing the game (using the Windoes key, alt+ctrl+del, alt+tab or any other alternative) fails, as the game isn't minimized. It just stays there, and whatever menu I opened is displayed flashing on top of the game screen. I am barely able to see the menu, but when i move with the arrows i can see for just a moment the line I'm currently on. My only option is to End the KAIN.EXE process from the Task Manager.

Another failed attempt was the use of TURBO program to slow down my computer. This seemed to work sometimes, and at several occasions i was able to play after the first cinematic, only to get stuck after the second one (the ressurection one). i even got it to work once beyond that point, and made it as far as the pillars, but that was it. i got no further.

Updating the game from http://home.comcast.net/~carebears4every1/KainSetup.exe
or any other place did not work either.

Does anyone know what can I do to get the game to work? I’m beginning to believe the challenge of this game is to get it to work, not playing it…

Can anybody help me?
I want to know how many games of legacy of kain are, and what is the first game and the last!

Thanks!

the 1st game is Blood Omen:Legacy of Kain
the 2nd is Blood Omen 2
the 3rd is Soul Reaver i don't have it :cry:
the 4rth is Soul Reaver 2 :cry:

The Fifth Horseman

25-04-2006, 12:33 PM

Um, no. Blood Omen 2 is 4th in the series, AFAIK. But it's definitely not 2nd. And I heard somebody speaking about the series having 5 games in it... OK, gotta check.

Wikipedia to the rescue (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legacy_of_Kain):
1. Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
2. Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
3. Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2
4. Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain
5. Legacy of Kain: Defiance

Have you checked the Blood Omen page on our site? I think you didn't.
Have you read the forum rules? GO READ THEM!!! (http://www.abandonia.com/forum/index.php?act=boardrules).

I don't think the reviewer knew very much about vampires. :ranting:

So what does a wolf have to do with a vampire?

Vampires have always been linked with wolves. In some settings, they can change into wolves, bats and mist, and in others they can just control bats and wolves.

The game does have some unusual features. For instance, rain or water hurts the vampire. Maybe it rains holy water, who knows?

In the first modern vampire story, Dracula, the vampire was unable to cross moving water, and in many settings, vampires are damaged by normal water, not just holy water.

(So it is a myth that vampires are invulnerable to physical hits).

In every setting, while it does take extraordinary measures to actually destroy a vampire completely, they've never been immune to physical hits. And in many settings, if you keep damaging a vampire, they can bleed to death, since it's blood that keeps them alive.

The feeding method has also changed here, and vampires don’t bite the neck; they use a handy stick to drain the blood from their victims.

This one is a little unusual for vampire lore, but where does "stick" come from (whatever that means)? I'm not sure how a stick would help, but it's obviously sucking the blood through the air from helpless victims. If you see the movies for the game also, you get to see an example of this.

In conclusion, my review of this review is: :sick:

OK please excuse me for being unable to read EVERYTHING in here trying to find my answer before posting (due to the huge amount of information + the risk of reading spoilers)...

anyway, perhaps you can help me with my little problem which seems to be not so little cause no1 is answering me for it! :((

In the game, after vising the oracle, I step out of the cave, only to enter another close cave on the right (no other option), then after passing some weird monsters and bolders I stumble upon two gray (extremely annoying I must add) bolders that block my way just before the save and apperently the exit...

I can't pass them no matter what I do!!! I tried jumping above them, pushing them, smashing them with my mace or magic...NADA!

please help this is silly and I really want to continue playing :<

There is no way going back..once you visit the Oracle the way back is blocked to you...
besides..what will I have to do in the way behind me? I've done everything..damn :wallbash:

Check Gamefaqs.com, they have a few walkthroughs. Might give you the answer.

Guest

20-06-2006, 02:18 PM

Thanks but I think i've been over all those walkthroughs and none of them even mentions these two annoying bolders... so I turned here hoping there's some pro player that remembers this part and will have a clue on how to get pass it

Guest

20-06-2006, 07:37 PM

ahhh nobody helps me?! how can I get through those bolders?! I've been to all the caves and all I find the has some kind of significance is that spell to mezmerize humans even through walls so I can feed on them..
but that still doesn't heeeeeeeeeeeeelppppppp

Guest

20-06-2006, 11:21 PM

yay!!! I did it on my own!

It seems your advice was correct after all! I went WAY back and took many bonuses I couldn't get to when I was weaker on the way...additionally I stumbled upon a blood cave which gives me more strength..it seems I have missed this cave the first time.. so I didn't have the strength to push those bolders...!!

and I thought those caves are just bonuses...didn't think it could make you stuck in the game like this.

The Fifth Horseman

21-06-2006, 11:36 AM

Maybe it's because I'm used to Metroid and Castleroid game types, where this is a typical part of the game (ie places which you will access much later in game after you first see them, neccesary abilities hidden in one way or another etc).

Hi, all.
I've got a lil' trouble - I've got Incapacity spell in Nosgoth caves and moved to another cave. There is 2 kind of rocks - brown (I can replace them with Kain) and black (I can't move them).
Near the exit of this first cave there are two black rocks, blocking the passage. I can't move through them...
Mist form is actually somewhere out of this Nosgoth Caves and I didn't get it anyway.
PS Sorry for my bad English :)

ok the problem is you have to find a cave witch gives you strenght and then you can move those rocks. When you enter that cave you hear a woman voice and you can only drink from it only once

Welcome

I have a serious problem with Blood Omen 1. I try to play again on new pc and I have following problem: To play under winxp a downloaded fixed file (from http://www.thelostworlds.net/) (It worked when I played lately on older machine) and game was running fine until specific moment. I'm going to the Oracle, movie playing good, and after the movie game is freezing. But animation (like fire under the pot) is still moving. Screen is little darker and I can do nothing. I wait an hour and nothing was hapened. Can You solve my problem ? Or if I could send someone my saves and this person could pass for me this moment and resend "my" saves :) I would be very happy :D

PS. I apologize for my english (It's not as good as it was in past)

Run the game in compatibility mode.
[Right-click on executable]->[Properties]->[Compatibility]
Select Windows 95, 640x480, 256 colors.

This should help.
