Jowood is the publisher. They didn't code the game. The developer is Piranha Bytes. Jowood certainly don't help matters by putting in their god-awful custom copy protection (which only serves to screw legitimate users) and no doubt pushed for a release too early, but I think you can lay the blame for much of Gothic 3's problems at Piranha Bytes' feet.
Of course Jowood is responsible for support after the game is released (i.e. releasing patches/bug fixes), and going on past performance they're likely to make a hash of it.
Any help on any of these problems would be great, thanks guys and keep up the good work.
When you pull down the console make sure the background scenery is right and at the VERY bottom of the console click on it with your mouse - you should see a light curser- the input area is around the very bottom- you will know when you find it because when you start typing a bunch of those crappy boxes will appear, hehe. Well, once you find it and memerize where its at, well, its a simple method of copy/paste into that line (make sure no boxes are there) like I outlined earlier in this post. I had to do that because the console was also corrupt for me, but you should see a tiny blinking curser- mind if the backgraoung image is the wrong color (you are facing a light wall thats the same color as the boxes, it does make it more difficult, but once you find the input area- just do the copy paste thing- its all you can do. Even the "edit" function is corrupt, although Mr. Helper works, but he just uses game dialog.
Heh nvm i was trying to spawn the SH guy but i put SH not sh, now i have alota gold =) only thing now is since i used some of these cheats weird **** happens like moving around sometimes the whole screen flashes black and white n nearly gives me a seizure but maybe that's just the video drivers for the game again, w/e i will live if i don't die from the seizures.

The easiest way to get multiple items is to use the trainer. You need at least one of the item you want more of in your inventory first. If you want bundles of weapons you can find them wherever there are orcs. All the occupied human cities have a few bundles at least laying around in the various buildings. Each town usually has some sort of warehouse/storehouse - they are always a good place to look.
Open a chest and then alt+tab out of the game and start the trainer (if you didn't already have it running). Activate the freeze gold cheat (F7). Now double click on the item in your inventory and it will transfer to the chest as normal, however the trainer will freeze the item in your backpack, effectively duplicating the item. Just keep double-clicking to rack up the numbers. This works for any item in your inventory, so is great for spawning masses of gold, arrows, pelts, potions, etc.
Once you have finished, disable the gold option (F7 again) and close the trainer (use the End key or alt+tab out and shut it down manually). You can now retrieve the duplicated items from the chest.
If you have the console enabled you'll probably notice you are now in slow motion. This is because F7 is also the console key for slo mo. Hit F7 again to deactivate it.

at narc339 - UH_OH yu just ran into the day becomes night and night becomes day in just a minute or two. Hey, do this - look up at the sky and see how FAST the sun and the moon travel across the sky, hehe - its like time travel! Also, DAYS are passing- every time it turns black, then white and look at your savegames and you can see the days adding up pretty quickly. Thats what happened to me and NOW, well, now the game will not even start - not even when I deleted all my savegames. A GRADUAL corruption of the savegames and possibly some of the other game files (since I *DID* delete the savegames and the game still won't start- I assume the graphical corruption, memory bugs, and general crap buggyness/lameness fubared some off the game files). Now it looks like I only have the option of uninstalling, making sure every gothic III file is gone and reinstalling. Maybe even a registry sweep for any gothic III entries. Btw,, did you know that such graphical corruption can fubar your Windows Registry and force a reinstall of Windows (eventually if it goes on and on). I know because amoung other things I am an A+ tech and have seen it. Nice bugs, huh?
Then again that MIGHT not be your bug. Look up at the sun and the moon to see. You could try reinstalling the game but its likely just to happen again until Jowood who probably pressured the delveloper to publish before it was done releases a patch. There is both an AMD CPU dual/core issue, a general hyperthreading issue and Graphics issues and corruption. General rule with Jowood published games: LEt game come out - wait at least 3+months for it to be fixed, then buy/procure game when word one the street is that its stable/fixed/safe. But this does not apply necessarily to everyone- just a LOT of people. Ugh, the mess that is The Guild 2, the mess that was Spellforce I when it was first released (3 minute loading times?!), anyway good luck and if you fix the problem let me know as it may be the same one I had.
