You might wish to mention (or at least link the Bugs section on this page) the PC version of The Black Gate have the gigantic plot stopping Minoc bug (and a few other), that still to this day is not fixed. (The murder scene will not happen if you do not WALK to Minoc).

Exult however already has this bug fix (and all other bugs) when playing Ultima VII with it.

[[1]] Already there. --Tribun 21:05, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
It is, however, a good idea to add a link to the bugs article from this article, to find it faster. Thanks Jaesun!--Sega381 22:48, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Music[edit]

The music is generally said to be composed by Dana Glover, though the credits in the game manual for The Black Gate weren't 100% clear. Here is what is printed in the game manual: "Audio Direction: Martin Galway. The Audio Team: Dana Glover, Marc Schaefgen, Nenad Vugrinec. Additional Music: Raymond Benson, Herman Miller, David Watson, Cathline Jones, Kirk Winterrowd." The game manual for the Serpent Isle is clearer, however -- it specifically says "Music Composed, Arranged and Conducted by Dana Glover," and has the same list of musicians under "Additional Music By". -- 99.239.102.34 09:27, 10 January 2011 (PST)

The in-game credits are more specific. Dana Glover was indeed the main composer, with a handful of pieces contributed by the others you mentioned. --Terilem 13:05, 10 January 2011 (PST)

References[edit]

I think the link in the References section should be removed cause it no longer exists/doesn't lead to the indicated content. --Time Lord 00:40, 3 September 2011 (PDT)

Fixed. --Terilem 10:44, 3 September 2011 (PDT)

Should blogs be references?[edit]

I've been through the blog entry in the references section and it just appears to have a lot of interesting opinions, not anything canonical. The Ultra-Mind 19:56, 5 January 2012 (PST)

Fair enough point. It was a pre-existing reference when I came along to re-write that section, and I didn't mind keeping it as a means to illustrate RG's explicit comparison of the Fellowship and Scientology in his Avatar Adventures interview. If people feel it isn't appropriate, then by all means remove it, but the Avatar Adventures reference is definitely concrete. --Terilem 20:45, 5 January 2012 (PST)
