Re: GOG no longer DRM-free?

Wouldn't checkpoints require much of the same character, and item, stats variables as save anywhere? Perhaps not a few things like location coordinances or in a 3-D game, point of view, but most of the rest of it.

Re: Ken's book on Sierra

On a side note, Romero is a member of the Big Box PC Game Collectors FB group and his wife Brenda is a mod. It has afforded some insight to his gaming history.

Re: Druid: Daemons of the Mind (DOSBox Issue)

Be sure your mounted hard drive is mounted as c and your image is mounted as d. No need to assign letters the same as you host's system. Some installers and programs look for contiguous drive letters and stop looking at an unassigned letter, so start at c and work your way up sequentially.

I think Rath needs to replace his security software and leave the new software set to defaults.

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

I take it that the Jones is a replacement for one that you sold. How about the diskette version?

Re: Quest for Glory 2 EGA crashing at intermission

I am the one that originally designed the GOG QfG release, but they have been tampering with it since. Of course the latest has been to rip out the DOS executables and ram ScummVM down their customer's throats. Of course the lesson of this is to always keep your older GOG installers.

Re: Quest for Glory 2 EGA crashing at intermission

Doesn't the GOG release now yse ScummVM? The SVM saves are not compatible with the original saves. This is not a common SCI error and when I checked it seems to be a SVM error message.

Andrea Has Book Coming Out!

This is out in a week. I would like to say, like Fleabag does, that this a love story (and maybe in part it is), but mostly it is a ghost story. https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/s960x960/118790276_2955684914659003_4769608445686452470_o.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=KX2d1z7RpmM...

Re: My Shivers 2 playthough

Not sure I would call it an FMV. The cutscenes are with real actors, but the game itself is more of a prerendered "2.5-D" game with first person perspective.

Re: Pharaoh: A New Era

Somehow it doesn't seem right not having Impressions doing it, but then since they do not exist anymore... Can't say I like the cartoony art. Seems like the only ones doing more realistic art these days are the high end 3-D games
