hello,

at first i hesitated to post this question here because it might conflict with the policies here but i just give it a shot because it might have nothing to do with the copyprotection on the dsk images. (see http://www.msx.org/forumtopicl3008.html)

when playing Xak 2, there is no way for me to gain some more experience. i only get the hard cash when deleting some beasts from the battlefield.

anyway, Wolf_ told me that i might be like this due to the protection, but even without the protection (with protection its not possible to enter the church, and propably u wont get exp then). but i also tried using images where i can enter the church freely at any time.
when i first entered the church without those stupid "monitor glitters" i was hopeful about the exp problem, but later on i still didnt receive the exp i need.

anyone has got some hints?
no i dont want to use miyuki [select] xak 2 :)

thnx in advance

My guess is it's a copyright problem anyways... It doesn't sound like something that could be cause by anything but that... If you like Xak2 I'd suggest you just buy one... It's a great game to own and it'll go for around $20 on the internet. If not you'd have to find yourself another version, but I can't help you with that. But, I'm pretty sure it's a copyright issue, yeah...

The issue of the monitor flashes and the static xp is not a 'copy-protection' eiter a missing one. It's part of the game's story! You should have some black crystal, in which the spirit of Amadok rests. He wants you to take the crystal with you. You have two options: 1) leave the crystal (I did this in first instance) or 2) take it with you. It will prohibit you then from entering the church and increasing your xp. The max. xp in Xak 2 is 65535 (as usual ^^; ).

As a result, you'll be able to get in the church again if you 1) sell the crystal so you don't have it on your person anymore, or 2) use the Shanaram's Mirror to destroy the black crystal. Amadok's spirit will be driven away, but he'll survive it. This means he can at last bother Fray in her Magical Adventures Smile

I hope this is a helpful solution.

d-tail, i can enter the church normally but monsters like the frogs and slimes in the forest just don't give any XP. or its only possible to gain xp after the black crystal incident. nah, dont believe that. it should give me xp everywhere in the beginning dont u think? or is it just the frogs and smiles that dont give xp?

Several things could be possible again:
1) You have such a high level (>28, I think) so you won't get xp anymore
2) SELL ZA BLACK CRYSTAL Smile
You said you used a patched version, which allowed you to enter the church nonetheless, but I think it's better you'd just play the normal (or English translated) version.

Oh please guys, stop this. I don't wanna blame any of you for starting all this, but I know it's just gotta stop, you know? So please, stop this pointless discussions about being nice et cetera. As of a 'nettiquette', I thought everyone ought to be nice to eachother... So I suggest you do so.
