    Hornblower Quest completed - have asked Maria to Marry me. :woot

    Really Good Quest SJG - Liked the Battles

    Minor issues found while playing - none break the quest

    QUEST BOOK ENTRIES
    MY FIRST SHIP - Texts 1, 3 & 4

    I am not sure if these are still used - but they did not appear in my Quest book.

    RETRIBUTION - Text 2
    Island name Antigua did not appear - error #Sisland_antigua# should be #sisland_Antigua# I think


    SMALL DIALOGUE ERRORS

    Antigua 1st land Battle - dialog with Matthews - one entry calls Quelp - Captain Quelp.

    Dialog with Sharpe at the Murdered Riflemen - In the 4th Option of the dialog - murdered Riflemen are called Higgins & Cooper. In all the other options they are called Archer & Evans.

    In Loyalty when Quelp has his own ship and escorts you to Cayman when you go to find Sharpe. When you talk to Quelp before setting sail Quelp says he is escorting you to Isla Mona.

    When you get to Cayman where you have the choice of going to the Tavern or Finding the Rifleman in town - in the Tavern Able Seaman Stanley is standing by Bar - but I could not get a dialog screen for him ( rifleman in town works OK - see image - red Uniform but green in dialog screen head).

    OTHER MISC. THINGS.

    Dreadnought Foster - Standing arround on Kingston, Jamaica jetty whenever you go there ( after arguement with Hammond )

    Wellesley - after card game at apothecary - meet Pellew & Wellesley in Capt Cabin. Wellesley is Grey Man ( see Image ) xD: I think Wellesley2.TGA.TX missing

    In Charlestown after being introduced to Teresa Moreno, you go to tavern - it is night-time & there is fire from earlier seige of Charlestown burning outside tavern. ( see Image ) - not there when I arrived before I went to see Teresa Moreno - don't know if it is only therre at night as I arrived at Charlestown during the day.

    Teresa Moreno equiped with a pistol BUT no powder or Bullets


    Not sure if all the TRAPS work - though I managed to trigger most of them I think.


    The QUEST JUMPS at the end seem to confuse the game about the players identity - in the Prison my Character screen showed my name as Horatio Horatio Hornblower. By the end of the quest my name was Lt William Horatio Bush (see Image ) :rofl

    Still have lots of Passengers / officers with me at the end of the quest ( some of whom have died - perhaps my guilty conscience ) - see image
    they are :-

    William Chumley
    Richard Sharpe
    Archie Kennedy
    Henry Wellard
    Lt Percy Buckland
    Patrick Harper
    Rifleman Tongue
    Lt William Bush
    Teresa Moreno
    Rifleman Cooper
    Styles
    Jack Hammond
    Able Seaman Wilks


    As I said none of the above cause the quest to break.

    Thanks for all your hard work Short jack Gold - It is a really excellent quest. :onya

    Done!
    Except for some glitches towards the end, mostly noted by Talisman, this quest ran very smoothly. :onya The land battles gave a very good sense of being there and feeling the ebb and flow of battle. It was very fast paced, which caused me concern at first because there weren't many good places to save the game. But as it turned out lots of saves were not needed. If only the main quest ran this well...... :bow

    Would anyone be able to make some good screenshots from the most interesting scenes in this storyline? I know there's some stuff in here that could be very scenic and would work brilliantly for our promotional purposes.
    Some Napoleonic land battles, the various story scenes on the ships, etc. should make for some good stuff.

    You can use the FREE_CAMERA setting at the bottom of PROGRAM\InternalSettings.h to find some interesting angles.
    And don't forget to use F9 to hide the on-screen interface where applicable to prevent that from obstructing the screenshots. :woot

    If you have ENABLE_CHEATMODE set to on at the bottom of PROGRAM\InternalSettings.h, there will be a character "C.S. Forester" in Antigua port at the start of the storyline who can quickly jump you to various parts of the story.
    This means you don't have to play through the entire story in order to be able to do this. :doff

    Jurgen Cottignie wrote the following on Facebook:
    "I've just ended the chronicles of Horatio Hornblower. It's the first time I played it. As I am a huge fan of and Hornblower and Sharpe I found it a very very nice story! To the makers: You guys/girls did a fantastic job with the creation of this story line.
    Thanks a lot!!!!"
    Thought @Short Jack Gold and @Grey Roger would like to know. :doff

    @Short Jack Gold, if he's still around (which I doubt as the username didn't offer an autocomplete as it does if I type "@pie" or "@grey"), is the one who deserves most credit for this storyline.

    But if Jurgen is patient, he'll see some more "Hornblower" stuff in the not too distant future...

    Unfortunately he's not. But it may be possible to drop him a PM or send an e-mail if desired.

    His username is with spaces; I corrected in in your above post. :doff
