Quest for Glory 2 VGA: walking to Raseir?
« on: 24 Mar 2012, 07:30 »
It has been confirmed that you can actually walk to Raseir without the caravan in the original Quest for Glory 2. So I was wondering, can you do this in the remake by AGDI?
I don't think you can, but I'm still asking.

In the original you can walk from Shapeir to Raseir (West, North, West (repeatedly)).
But this way you can't enter Raseir....

Don't know if this is possible in the remake, but it would make sense anyway.  ;)

Of course you can't enter it. I just want to set my eyes on it.  ;)

I've started a new game so I can test this myself.  I'll send a screen cap in my next post if I'm successful in the endeavor.

I have travelled across the desert and bring news on whether it's possible to visit Raseir early.  (in case the below screenshots are dead links, I also uploaded the screenshots here.)

Exhibit A


Here, we're standing outside Raseir, not Shapeir.  You can tell because of the constellations.

Exhibit A-2


Proof that the current day is 16, long before you're supposed to be in Raseir.

Exhibit B


We attempt to enter, and are met with the familiar hostility of the Raseirian guard.

Exhibit C


Being a crafty hero, we try something a little different...

Exhibit D


Hmm, nope, they ain't buying it.

Exhibit E


Oh well, we tried.  We end up back at the town outlook.

So, in conclusion:  Yes, it's possible to visit Raseir early in the VGA remake.

Is there a way to add a visa to your inventory via cheating, and then show it to the guards?

Actually, yes and no.
Yes, because you can add the visa through a debug mode (although see this). Plus the same debug mode can just teleport you to Rasier without the endless walking in the desert.
No, because the game just freezes once the guards accept your visa. You then have to force close the program.

I never knew you could just walk there. 8-0 I just always assumed it was so far you actually needed that caravan to get there.

Not only that but you actually arrive there in 1 day and 1 night (not including random encounters), whereas the caravan takes more then a week (including an ambush but still)...

There must be an explanation. What was that caravan doing in the middle of the desert for several undocumented days!
