Darkstone Game Cheats

Submitted by : tanara

Extra Gold Fill your inventory slots full with stuff, 
leave only one open.Place one single gold in the slot, 
have a 10,000 pile on the ground already. Close inventory, 
pick up pile and it will automatically make the 1 gold 10,000
gold. Repeat as necessary.

Bonus Song: 
For a lovely bonus in the single-player game, 
toss some coins in the bard's tray (in the 
center of town.) 

Easter Egg: 
When playing as the thief, you can steal from the 
chickens in town. Your reward is entirely 
appropriate. :-) 

Extra gold:
Begin a new game and give all money from one character to the 
other character (money holder). Start another new game, and 
select the money holder as one character and create an 
entirely new character. Transfer 1500 gold from the new 
character to the money holder. Repeat as needed to build 
your gold total.

Money Trick: 
The fastest road to easy money is by starting a new game with 
two monks. Transfer both the money and book of resurrection to 
one monk then quit the game. Start a new game with that same 
monk and another new monk, repeating the process until inventory 
is full of books and money. Ideally transfer books to a fighter 
with a good trade skill and sell all the books bringing in a 
total of about 180,000gp. Deposit gold and repeat. Mmmm. 

Hint: Avoid player killer problems:
Use the following steps to save your game when playing over a 
network. Copy your save files to another directory that is 
outside of the DarkStone directory before joining a network 
game. To restore a save, reload DarkStone from the CD, then 
copy the saves from the outside directory. Note: Make sure 
all three saves are copied.

Play Music in MP3 Player 
Because the music in DarkStone is stored in MP3 format, 
rename the file (giving it an [mp3] extension) to hear 
it in your MP3 player! 

The spell of choice for magic users:
The spell of choice for magic users, especially between levels 
1 and 20, is the Magic Bomb. This is a magical contact grenade 
that you can drop directly onto your enemy's head, even from 
around a corner or through a wall. I never saw a monster resist 
it, and it does around 30 to 70 points of damage per hit.

tired of getting killed:
Are you tired of getting killed over and over by spike traps and 
mines while you're trying to get to the treasure? The problem 
often can be solved by one or two Scrolls of Telekinesis, or a 
Scroll of Teleport. They cost a few gold pieces, but can save you 
a lot of time.

The Time Orb:
The Time Orb, once you have it, still won't do you a lot of 
good in the battle against Draak. It has only one charge, and 
its effect doesn't last long. You have to do hundreds of points 
of damage to Draak in about 30 seconds if you want to win the 

Hints by Reuben Kee
Basic tactics:
Eat! If you get too hungry, your characters will start 
losing hp. Know that the value of armor or weapons decreases 
as the max duration and current duration decrease; always 
repair if you have the skill before selling equipment off. 
Characters can grow old and their stats will start dropping 
like mad. You start off at 20 years; you must find ways and 
means to prolong their youth. 
Every monster has its traits, meaning each monster has its 
own pattern in attack, movement, etc. Knowing your enemy well 
will result in more efficient kills. 
Use your skills! Each class features its different skills; 
use them well. They can really help a lot! 
To set spells, simply press the numbers 1-5, bring up your 
spell book and hold shift while clicking on the spell you wish 
to place under the number. 

How to be a millionaire:
Different combinations of characters can complement each other 
very well, take a Warrior/Amazon, and a Thief/Assassin, and you 
can get rich really fast. First, have your thief's steal skill 
be reasonably good (doesn't fail so often) and you warrior's 
repair skill reasonably good (doesn't fail too often) and proceed 
to the dungeons below. Since the equipment you steal from the 
monsters is usually better than the stuff bought at the 
blacksmith, all you have to do is repair the second-hand 
equipment with your warrior and sell it off to the blacksmith! 
Know that the further you progress in the game, the more money 
you will be making, but the tougher the enemies. Hence, you will 
have to find out ways and tactics to keep alive and steal. Happy 

Note: Stealing from the NPCs will get you nowhere; you need to 
be daring and steal from the monsters for the good stuff.

Tell your computer-controlled character what spells to cast:
First, temporarily switch to the character you want the computer 
to use, select the spell from the spell book. Next click on your 
blue bar, your mana bar, its right beside your red bar, or hp bar. 
Notice a line? The top part of the line is how much mana you want 
to allow your computer-controlled character to cast with, the 
bottom part is reserved, just in case you have a spell which 
consumes HUGE amounts of mana. Thats it, switch back to your 
character and let the teamwork begin!

The "croak" tactic:
If heavily overpowered by a ungodly powerful enemy, use a long 
range offensive spell or weapon to keep our of harms way.  
If he has long range offensive capabilities as well, attack, 
dodge, attack, dodge, etc. Croaking will get you through the 
harder parts of the game.

Infinite food trick:
During the horn of plenty quest, you can right-click on the 
horn to get some nice pieces of chicken!  Also, the forester 
skill can get you lots of fish too, use it on a pond to fish!

New Song:
In a single player game toss coins in the Bard's tray in 
the center of town.

Playing as Thief:
Steal from the chickens to get a good reward :)

3 Cool Tricks
Here's some tricks for Darkstone that I discovered and 
haven't seen mentioned anywhere. The first 2 can only be 
done in single player games, the 3rd can be done in both 
single and multi.

1. Surrogate Pool Drinker - If you switch to solo mode and 
leave the character you're not using at a mana or health 
pool, whenever you get low just switch to the character by 
the pool, walk a short distance from the pool, then click on 
the pool and before the character gets there to take a drink 
switch back to the other character and that one will get their 
health or mana filled instead of the one by the pool.

2. Permanent Magic Door - If you want to keep your magic doors 
from crumbling when you go back through them, when returning 
through the door from town use the character who did NOT create 
the magic door to enter the portal. If you are in a multi player 
game, 2 characters can both make a magic door then return from 
town using the other guy's door instead of your own. This way 
you can keep them open and use them over and over.

3. Earn More Money - Of course you want to use a character 
with the Trade skill to do all the buying, selling, and 
repairing (if you have one). But if you have the character 
with Trade skill pay the blacksmith to repair all your items 
before you sell them you will actually get MORE money. He 
gives you a discount on the repair and pays your more for the 
fully repaired item than what he would have paid before + the 
price he charged you to repair it.

Even More Money
Create Two New Monk Charaters:
Start am single player game with these charaters. Then sell their 
copys of Ressurection for lots of Cash. Then give the money two 
one charater. Start a new single player game with a two new 
monks. Deletee the charater (MONK that has no money) and repet 
with the new monks. Then make the charater you want and start a 
new game with the really rich monks. Take their money and start 
a new single player game with another new charater. I did this 
13 times and ended up with over 100000 gold.

Here's something my mom found and doesn't want to share: 
when you go through the dungeons and find a desk with a 
spellbook/scroll, switch to the carachter that doesn't 
know any magic. Go in solo mode, grab the book, then sell 
it in town. We did this, and never got scrolls. We also 
noticed an increased amount of desks.
