We have a new version of Aveyond: The Lost Orb available now. This new version of the game resolves some small bugs and a progression block that was reported in the forums..

We apologize greatly for the trouble. If your Game Manager does not prompt you to update this game, here's how to install the new version of the game:

Uninstall a PC Game
Open your Game Manager by clicking the Play My Games icon. Find your game and click the trash can icon.

Reinstall a PC game.
1. Go to your Purchase History and click Install Now next to the game.
2. Select Run or Save File.
3. If prompted, click OK or Run to open the game's executable file and start downloading.

*If you have not yet purchased the game, find the game and reinstall the trial version (when available) to play any remaining minutes.

No, the save files are not kept in the same folder as the game, so it won't be affected by reinstalling the game.

aislingyngaio,
do you know in which file and folder the saves are? I can't find them.

You can usually find your save files by going into your windows explorer and typing %appdata% into the address bar. That should give you a list of folders for all the games you have (even if you've uninstalled them). For me Lost Orb saved files are in the Aveyond 3 folder. But you only ever need to find your saved files if you want to send them to another computer.

I thought the update might fix the weird anomaly I keep experiencing in Underfall, i.e. conversations/actions that reference Spook as though he is a member of the party while he is not.

My only interactions with Spook have been when he stole a quill for Mel and gifted it to her and then when he showed the party the way to Harakauna. I check and he's still in the Bar in Peliad...

Maybe this is something that still needs to be fixed? Or I'm just crazy?

Didn't spook come with you after you got him out of the Temple to have a look at the lion statue that zapped the mouse in Stonetooth cave? He won't be in your active party (meaning he's not in battles) unless you actively put him there, but he will be travelling with you.

rbtanger:
That happens because you took advantage of a bug which let you go to Acropolis via the MME, even though you hadn't been there to flip the switch yet. You were not supposed to get there without Spook.

You can still finish the game, but it will seem very weird in places because you did this.

No, it wasn't a bug that let me go to Acropolis. I hadn't been in Acropolis at that point, only Underfall. I made it to Underfall completely on my own, battling fish and crabs and running, and never used the MME at all.

After I had wandered around somewhat aimlessly for a while, I finally figured out that I had to have missed something in the cave system. I went back and discovered the Lion statue that triggered the "Go get Spook" quest.
