Promotion to Mage

    I appear to have been hit by the "Promotion Lockout" bug. After slogging my way through the Verhoffin's Ruins and returning to Johannes, thence to Drangheim, back to Johannes who says I am promoted, I find that my Awards page says "Promoted to Mage" but the Party Summary and the individual page still say "Scholar". Teachers still say "Must be propted to become Master"

    Is there anything I can do, short of starting over or going back to a very old save game?

    "Desperate"

I assume you didn't save your position before going for the promo?

    If not, the only thing to do to correct it is to edit your savegame. You'll need a hex editor program, and you MUST save your position (preferably in a new slot) before you start. Nothing screws up a program quicker than a hex edit gone wrong.

    Somewhere in the history of this MM9 Tavern are the instructions on how to do this. I now they're there, but I haven't a clue who posted them. Bones and Klar are good people to start with, though, and if you fail to find them, call for help from Bones.

    Good luck!

A further though strikes me.

    Depending on where you've been, you might get out of this without too much loss by reverting to the Autosave. Worth checking . . .

    That's new since I last had to fiddle with the game, but I'm glad it's there. Doing it with the hex editor is hard work, and anything but intuitive.

    Enjoy the rest of the game!
