Description of Wizard's Crown

A real "oldie but goodie" from SSI, this solid RPG goes beyond its CGA, run-from-floppy limitation with solid attention to detail, huge game world, and incredible amount of choices.

A must-have for hardcore RPG'ers who don't mind primitive graphics. It wasn't really the best.

how do you create a disk

Seriously, people are still playing this game in late 2016?

I'm replaying it on a C64 emulator on Mac, since the DOS version seems to have severe bugs regarding experience and such. I, too, am running into an issue with every copy of the game missing the emerald key from the Old Thieve's guild. Even resetting the dungeons doesn't help. Argh!

Is in this version here the emerald key in the tavern availlable? All versions i got were played disks where the owner got the key allready and because of this you cant end the game.

is there a version of this game for the MAC platform? Playing in my browser doesn't allow me to save, and I am experiencing glitches.

One of the all time greats, they did so much with so little code.

I'm also one of those people who lived for this game! I accidentally stumbled onto a bug that can be exploited to finish the game more quickly:

1. Earn more than 200 XP
2. Buy skills until you have less than 100 XP
3. Now buy hit points or something else costing 100 XP. Since you have less than 100 XP, this should not be happening, but it does and you end up with more than 200 XP
4. Repeat the above until EVERYTHING is maxed out (which takes a bit of puzzling)
5. Start finding great stuff (weapons and armor) because your search skills are so ridiculously high, and sell at a high price because of your haggling skills.

This allowed us to finish the game at a reasonable speed, although you can still get in trouble because of fatigue rules.

Has anyone else run into glitches? First I noticed that when using Heal, I got an error saying he didn't have the skill. The after logging out a back in a few times, it started working. Now I realized that the Taverns are not reducing Morale loss at all. Any ideas?

It's too bad the second game called Eternal Dagger never made it to the PC. Just as good as Wizard's Crown, but you'll love this game if you're into fantasy RPG games.
