 Shame/Despise?
Author: Philia (---.localdomain)

While I am loving this game so much, and am blessed that Exult is running it perfectly thus far. I'm close to finishing this great game and just before getting that Cube, I figured I might as well as explore EVERYWHERE as I can. Just to complete the fulfilling enjoyment from this game of course.

And yes, I'm using a plenty of FAQs and maps to check out where I need to explore and which location I may be missing (ahoy Amroisa's cave secret room!), and I'm awful confused about this two dungeons that are NW of Britain.

A LOT of walkthroughs are referring the Selwyn's Dungeon (where the Sphere is) as Despise but yet I just read in a Wiki (hence that's why I'm asking here, just for further confirmation) that its actually referred to as Shame! O.o' So I'm terribly confused about which information to rely on for the actual dungeon of Despise (which I'm running about in right now).

I'm also surprised that when I first entered this particular dungeon, none of the party members said anything. Which confirmed what Wiki said, whereas the dungeon further south of it was referred as Despise...

Minding all that, in the proper northern dungeon of the two, I'm stuck in trying to find a key (K and P hot keys no go) to open the two doors that is blocking a deceased, a spear and a backpack. And there is a well on the left of this locked section of the hallway if that helps. And strangely there's this teleporter/staircase a bit SE of this section of the dungeon that I'm hoping to access as well... any pointers would be so greatly helpful. Thanks in advance.

The Sphere dungeon is *supposed* to be Shame but it's not. That's where Shame is in every other Ultima. Origin just made a mistake with U7 and swapped Shame and Despise. Any in-game reference to Despise means the Sphere dungeon by Lost Lake. I'm pretty sure any maps or walkthroughs will refer to it as Despise as well.

So, for the purposes of Ultima 7 Selwyn's Dungeon is Despise and the Dungeon in the mountains behind Britain is Shame.

Makes me wonder - is it possible to fix this in some mod? I mean renaming one of the "Despises" to Shame.
How about including that into Keyring Mod?

First off, one of the "Despises" *is* named dungeon Shame, it's just the wrong one.

Not sure what you'd have to fix. The string where your party member's say "This is Dungeon Shame/Despise", when the Time Lord tells you where the Sphere Generator is, and when Rudyom tells you where his magic carpet is.

Does anyone know if there are any other references to either dungeon in-game?

>>First off, one of the "Despises" *is* named dungeon Shame, it's just the wrong one.

I know, that the 'flying carpet entrance' should be Shame [as in previous Ultimas]. But I believe there's no in-game reference to Shame at all.


By renaming I meant changing Shamino's words "This is Dungeon Despise" into "This is Dungeon Shame" for the one with the magic carpet. And Rudyom's/Time Lord's phrase also. :) Maybe I haven't pointed that out clearly, then - sorry. But I meant exactly the same thing as you did, Lathlas.

Btw, completing the "real" Despise makes you appear near the fire shooting monolith near 'carpet entrance' so it makes things a little more complicated about the names.

I know you did, I was agreeing with you. I was just trying to pin down exactly what strings needed to be fixed.

What do you mean by "completing" the real Despise?

Ok, great that everything's clear now.

AFAIR in Despise there's a sort of intersection, where from you can get to certain parts of the dungeon. After getting through every single one you get back to that intersection, but in one case you get teleported north of that fire-shooter, at least that's what I remember...

I just tooled around *ACTUAL* Despise for a minute. There are several teleporters that take you to some interesting locations. A couple of them do wind up in the Sphere Dungeon, but just as many wind up in other random spots.

I guess that can just be a random annoyance.

I'll look at doing some dialogue fixes, and see if it's as easy as it sounds.

Moving the Despise egg from the Sphere dungeon to the real Despise is pretty easy.

It's usecode 0x621 for the egg, and quality 10 for Despise.

There don't seem to be any party interjection tags for Wrong, Shame or Hythloth.

Qualities 1,2,3 & 8 all seem to be blank so maybe the missing dungeons could be written for them. Hythloth may or may not be necessary, it's kind of a judgement call whether the Black Gate is in Hythloth or not.

Isn't also the abandoned mine near Minoc supposed to be Covetous?

The abandoned mine north of Minoc (old number one) isn't Covetous. The current Minoc mine is. There's an egg at the main eastern entrance saying "This is the Minoc Mine" and no egg at all at the western entrance.

I think I'd leave the Minoc Mine egg alone, and put a Covetous egg at the western entrance. That way it's more apparent that the mine just dug into Covetous rather than being built on top of it.
