Hmm. Meanwhile, Al put this up for bids...

Not as exciting as the source code, though, I'm sure.
Interesting! That's a cool plate!

Re: Al Lowe reveals his Sierra source code collection—then puts all of it on eBay

Eh? They're not cancelled - here they are! Just search for "al_lowe" (note the underscore) in eBay and you'll find them... The "Source Code" disk bids (LSL1 and LSL2) are the ones that got pulled. Why would the auctions have been cancelled before they finished? Who knows? Maybe because they got so ...

Seems Al Lowe's ebay auctions were cancelled. Someone must have picked up the phone. :(
Or they were bogus bids, to have reached $10,000.

Maybe this could be a fun concept for the community games section - rejected Sierra game ideas, where we come up with deliberately silly and nonsensical plots for sequels. Any interest?
I'd say go for it!

Re: Tips for first-timers?

Thanks for the advice. By specific, I largely meant the two questions I asked afterwards (DOSBox issues or making the game unwinnable). Or, in general, just any quirks that may set it apart from other Sierra titles. I'll be perusing the GOG manual scan as well. Treat it like every Sierra game. Talk...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Yikes. :shock: I simply wanted to use the most dangerous place that I could think of, simply to increase Larry's motivation to get out of the "Viva" contract. But yes - probably best not to use Compton. I know that one of "Weird Al" Yankovic's albums is called "Straight Outta Lynwood" because Lynwo...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Larry Las Lobos. This happens just after the events of LSL7 (when Larry won the Best Dressed Competition). Suddenly, leisure suits are "in", baby - and a movie director sees the news, and invites Larry to play the lead in a new movie. In the contract, the title of the film says, "Viva L..." but the...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Luxor Larry (in French: Larry De Luxe). After a rip in the space-time continuum (don't laugh, time in the LSL series was always... flexible... after the end of LSL3), Larry travels back in time to ancient Egypt, and his face appears on the Sphinx. The ancient Egyptian men immediately assume he's a ...

Re: Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry

The problem is that MCL and BOB set the bar SO EFFING LOW - that it'd be nearly impossible NOT to be better than those.

I am waiting for it to go on sale somewhere... for cheap... before I give it a swing. Burned too many times.

Ever watch the show Tales of the Gold Monkey? Reminds me of a (bad) version of that. (Which, to be fair, was trying to capitalize in a way on Indiana Jones for TV).
I've heard of it, but I've never seen it.
It was a super campy but fun show...

Re: Metaltech/Tribes Universe Games Released For Free!

I split yours from the other thread - because that one centered on using it for a Mac. Yours is on Windows 10. One thing that would help greatly is being more specific as to the error(s) you're getting so anyone who can help has a general idea what the issue might be. Have you checked here: http://w...
