Re: Started playthrough

I finally started playing after putting the next game I should play up to a vote. I only just started Act II. So far it's pretty good. Lots of amusing bits. I have to look up the pharmacy stuff. I'm not sure about everything, but a lot of it sounds pretty accurate so I think they did their research...

Re: King's Quest V (Well, Any MUNT selected game)...

I had reported it earlier with Les Manley , where in the game - the munt/ROLAND sound plays just fine - but when DOSBox captures the video, there's no audio. Well, I set up King's Quest V to use Munt/Roland - as I play the game, it's all beautiful - but when I go to the video, it didn't work either...

Rath mentioned Sonny from Police Quest. You can arrest someone for DUI in PQ1 and PQ3. There are also two places where Sonny can drink in PQ1. He's also apparently immune to the effects of alcohol.

There's a bar in Tahiti in Codename: Iceman where you can drink.

Re: And so it begins - CODENAME: ICEMAN

And 300 out of 300. I swear the submarine parts were harder this time around. I don't know how I made it through the first time. Oh! Did you restore and get full points on the sub to get the full 300? I started from the beginning. I pretty much had to since the ID card thing goes almost to the begi...

Re: Choose my next adventure

Looks like I have 3 votes for Freddy Pharkas and 1 vote for Colonel's Bequest, so Freddy it is! Oh oh... Image1.png :) How did you do this? When you do play, be sure to use the Munt installer. I have said that TCB has the best EGA art of any game bar none. DXnp5KSK9JM What does the Munt installer d...

I used to have this issue. I think it was the first issue of Sierra Magazine/Interaction that I got. I remembered the comic and looked it up when I was done playing. Man, I wish I hadn't tossed these out ages ago.

Choose my next adventure

Having just completed "Codename: Iceman", I thought I'd continue through my library of Sierra title that I haven't played yet. To keep things interesting, I thought I'd put it to a vote. So, let me know which title from the one's listed below I should do next: The Adventures of Willy Beamish The Bla...

Re: And so it begins - CODENAME: ICEMAN

So rest assured, if you walk out and go downstairs - it's already too late. This pretty much sums up a lot of the game. As for Stacy, if I am not mistaken - isn't she an operative - that's supposed to pass the plans to you? But ends up losing the ear ring? I can't remember if the game mentions some...

Re: And so it begins - CODENAME: ICEMAN

So I just finished “Iceman”. And… yeah. I see why it has this reputation. It’s like the game goes through great pains to try to confound you. “Think you have it solved? Just wait!” I did end up using a few hints to get past the guards at the end. I needed to make a phone call first, which I tried do...

Re: And so it begins - CODENAME: ICEMAN

I still have the microfilm from Tahiti. I got the key and ID from Stacy. I returned the map to her (figured that one out later). I found the gun, the note and the business card in the apartment. I will only say, you have what you need then. That's good to know. I'll try toughing it out some more. I...
