Re: Script party!

Here is the first draft of the SQ3 script. The above phrase is in, and yes, the game actually takes 5 points away if you "use bridle on snake"!

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

In the category "beware for what you wish for" Collector, here are some screen shots of the first half of the game, and you'll find I have a curious definition of the word "some". I'm checking things over with the script I'm presently building. Speaking of which, if you'd like to help out with the g...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Forum keeps tossing me out, didn't have that on this topic before...
I'm working on the script now. We should have a definite answer then. In the mean time there are some fun videos on YT with Roland MT music.

Re: Script party!

Stuff to try from the current project:
"You've been getting some mighty strange ideas from playing 'KQ II', haven't you? You loose [sic] 5 points."

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 38-44 The shooting section is utterly annoying - repetitive attacks and an air ship that sometimes decides to hang in a corner where you can't get to it... after getting a couple of shield depleateds I decide to savescum my way through it. Take 45: I make it with SaveScum, save and lo and beho...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 30: In the closet I find the word "use vaporizer" works. Guess that's how they could tell I was an impostor - to get the bad guys to think I'm a janitor I have to act like one. I dispose of the trash, find my spaceship, pick up the keycard an oblivious or gambit playing boss, walk along dispos...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

I got your clues, don't worry. Take 24: Now that I've beaten Astro Chicken the Ortega section makes sense. The game nudges me to throw a detonator into the transmitter opening which I manage to do without any flaws. I've even managed to flierljep my way up and make it to the ship without dying, surp...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 20: I pick up my save from after I killed Arnoid. This time I find the right word to investigate the remains and find the belt. I buy underwear, a toy and the chicken hat which I wear instantly. Roger takes it off almost directly after leaving the shop. Up to Monolith then - I decide on a fun ...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 15: After my no-experience at Monolith and remembering something about thermo-weave underwear, I decide to visit Phleetbum instead. Upon arriving there I'm treated to a cutscene about a robot set out to terminate me. Not sure what that spoofs... :) As I walk around and run from scorpions, even...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 11: I start all over again: take the wire, ride the conveyor and move the motivator, take the reactor and the ladder, get attacked by a rat. This time I go back to the bottom of the chute and take back the reactor and wire. Good thing the rat couldn't carry the ladder! I enter the ship, put th...

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Oh I found the reactor allright but it had never struck me I could just take it out of the hole. I did try to make the hole bigger.

Re: BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

Take 7 I give in and visit UHS. TAKE the reactor? Seriously? Take 8 and 9 The ScummVM version is not one I'm a fan of. Since I haven't made any headway that can't be done in five minutes, I toss the ScummVM version and go back to my buddy DOSBox. Since MI remarked he'd only seen the death once and ...

BBP vs SQ (spoiler topic)

After using a walkthrough through most of SQ6 and being unable to solve SQ4 without help, I've decided to tackle SQ3... and for the fans, I''ll chronicle what happens. Please don't tell me what to do next, since I'm trying to figure that out for myself. This entire topic is basically spoiler. Take 1...
