  1. Nevermind! After days of trying to figure this out, I finally did . . . I knew asking the forums would help!
  2. I've looked all over the forums and I can't find any instruction on how to change the load order of mods. In particular, I'm trying to use the exotic familiar selection mod and I don't know how to make it load first. Thanks!
  3. Oh, but I'd like to "encourage fellow student" right now and just say I'm only impatient because Academagia is so unique and, in my opinion, so much better than all the really ridiculously well-funded games out there. If I ever win the lottery, I'm investing an equity stake in BCS (if you will let me). And then you guys could have whatever resources you want to make the best games available.
  4. Sigh. I guess I'll try to take up quilting now as an alternative.
  5. So, I'm trying to raise my patience skill . . . IRL. Waiting for year 2 is just like Christmas Eve as a kid, except longer (much longer) and with fewer cookies and gifts. Maybe it's like it being "always winter and never Christmas." I've gone on a couple of quests to try and raise it. I went to grad school, I got a job, I even got an Old English Sheepdog familiar and trained him how to roll over (I'm trying to assess what my bond level with him is, but the interface is weird. Anyway, he sleeps on the bed like any good familiar). But none of those helped raise patience. Any suggestions? In the meantime I've raised my botany, rhetoric, and pims . . . just not the skill I think I really really really need: patience. *sigh*
  6. It's been forever since I've posted on the forums, but I've been lurking. I haven't been able to play at all in the last year, but I've seen all these amazing portraits that you guys have added and I'm adding them to my own game. Thanks so much for sharing these! I'm really looking forward to playing with them. Oh, and I'm eagerly awaiting the second year too. Whenever it comes out, I know it's going to make my week, maybe even my whole month!
  7. Adrian!!! <3!!! Thanks so much for figuring that out. That's so awesome! I'm going to go try it out asap.
  8. I know other people have custom portraits. I hope they will share on this thread. Pretty please with a glamour spell on top?
  9. Okay, well, just to let you know, I've got some squirrels . . . technically, I don't own them, but they live in the courtyard of my condo complex. They are friendly with me because I feed them corn nuts. It will be no problem for me to lure a few into a trap and then sacrifice them to the gods of game releases for you cuz I'm a nice person like that. If the gods require a larger sacrifice . . . well, there's always the neighbor's dog. (Because this is the Internetz I know that a part of you really is wondering whether or not I'm the type of person to sacrifice innocent creatures to spiritual entities of contested morals and existence, but 1) squirrels aren't innocent (you should see what they did to the tree outside), 2) neither is the neighbor's dog (exhibit A, my urine stained doormat), and 3) this is OMG serious business!!! The world is going to end this year (according to the Mayans) and it will end without any of us ever having played Academagia Year 2. Can you live with that?????)
  10. Thanks for the tip, Schwarzbart. I'll pm Mikka about what she might need. I wish I could mod. I'd totally add Bernard the Magnificent into the game.
  11. Yeah Leoshi, I was going for a young Severus Snape that actually shampoo'd and maybe cared about the way he looked sorta look there. Maybe I should add more highlights in it. Hair is hard. So are personalities . . . especially when it comes to boys. All I can think of is boy scout and sullen. I'm working on a chubby dweeb with mommy issues (I'm pretty sure he has a lisp, speaks in the third person, and refers to himself as "Bernard the Magnificent" when he isn't being beaten up by Philippe), but he isn't turning out so good.
  12. Hey guys! I envy the portrait maker for Academagia who is obviously very talented to be able to capture such a wide range of personalities with the portraits represented in the game. Alas! because I am perverse at heart, her (his?) talent has inspired me to go all Frankenstein on the portraits and mix and match features to come up with new personalities and characters. I'm thinking I'm going to hold off on playing my next game until I replace a lot of the PC portraits and NPC portraits and maybe some professors. I thought that maybe we could use this thread as a place to share our favorite custom portraits so that people who want to switch things up a bit can . . . using their own content and content generated by others. Like I said, the custom portraits I make use features from the originals . . . I just take a piece there and part here and mush them together in a new portrait. Here are some of my faves so far (haven't gotten around to boys yet, but they will get some love soon, but before them I'm going to make some truly wicked looking girls). Please, share your favorites here as well. Added: Goth Girl Added: Boys
  13. Is there an official thread for vague hints about year 2 release date???? I've seen legate say later in 2012 and also something that made it sound like 2013 would be the year. Of course, I'm in the sooner rather than later camp.
  14. Okay, just a little more info. It's summer; I have time; I played through the game three times this weekend trying different things. The first thing I did was get rid of Impulse and just purchased the game directly from your site. That actually helped the speed issue a lot. However, it did not help with the crash on reloads. And what I realized (after three games . . . hey! at least I got to try a lot of different adventures! I hope to see the Watchers make a destructive reappearance somewhere in Academagia 2. The quests that opened up from leveling languages were awesome!) is that it rarely crashes on reload at the beginning of a game, but as the school year progresses, it continues to crash more and more on reload. In fact, the last game I played, I could only reload once or twice at the end of the year before the game would crash (I was trying to see what all the different rewards were for adventures). Also, I've read somewhere on the forums about people being able to go to the month Kapsus when they open their endgame save. That has happened to me too, but I have something else to add to that: on my last game, I could (occasionally) go to the month Kapsus even before the game ended. I was trying to plan out training my familiar and was flipping through the calendar and SUP!? KAPSUS! Anyway, I'm sure you are aware of all of this. But, in case you aren't, maybe the info will be mildly useful.
