Pandoras Box

Author File Description
Thrim
File Details
Minimap:
Pandoras Box is a difficult adventure with seven parent city episodes and two colonies. It takes place during the Dark Age of Greece, following the Trojan war. It has been extensively tested with the original Zeus, but not with the Atlantis expansion. You will play two colony episodes with four to choose from, and the difficulty level largely depends on the choice of colony:

Amphipolis is easy, with limited resources.
Iolcus is moderage, with some resources.
Ithaca is difficult, with substantial resources.
Nemia is extraordinarily difficult, with abundant resources.

In general, the colonies you choose to develop will determine what sanctuaries you must build in the parent city.

NOTE: Do not play Nemia unless you are expert level, see Readme.txt.

asds When I try to play Pandoras Box with the original Zeus release, the introductory text is not found and the program crashes.

Regarding the program crashing: You have to rename the folder from "thrim-pandoras-box" to "Pandoras Box"! In the "Adventures" folder for Zeus, you should have a folder called "Pandoras Box", inside of which you need two files:

Inside "Pandoras Box" folder:

1) Pandoras Box.pak
2) Pandoras Box.txt

The Readme.txt file can be there also, if you want.
Artemis After the first episode I got the message:Open play,no episode goals!So,all my work for nothing.You must have make a mistake somewhere.I did more than 100 adventures,I know the drill if you know what I mean.
quakeii Playing fine for me. Have Poseidon installed. Everything OK. Keep making these wonderful adventures!

Regarding open play problem: Pandoras Box was designed with the original Zeus version. Can it be that you are running it under Poseidon without choosing "run Zeus"? I have not been able to reproduce the failure you experienced. However, I will look into the matter further in the days to come.
Euca Me aswell played the first parent city and after that it said open play :(. Such a shame coz i loved it so far :(
asds To fix open play problem, copy the "Pandoras Box.pak" file directly into the Zeus/Adventure folder, so that there are two copies of the file (one in Zeus/Adventure/Pandoras Box and one in Zeus/Adventure). This may also fix the problem after the game has already been started, but I am not sure.

I have checked the fix proposed by asds, and I think it works. I have found this "open play" problem with some other adventures also (e.g. with "Ares Conflict" by DJF), and I can fix the problem by putting a copy of the .pak file into the main Adventure folder. I was also able to fix the problem after it had happend (and not loose my 1st episode work), although this did not always work.
asds Awesome! Played through several times, won Nemia after two attempts, tip: Cerberus chases columns. Neat trick with the marble, did not notice at first.
usagolden WOW! WICKED COOL. LOVED the colonies except nemia. went there first and almost got it but ran out of money. cerberus wouldn't allow my horse farm to exist at all. Thanks for the great adventure. it was the first fan created one i tried. i just had to move the file into the correct folder and no problems. only have zeus original. i shall try your 'dawn of history' next. i'm sure i won't be disappointed. again, thanks
