Re: Data Preservation & Imaging Diskettes

Note: I have recently acquired a KryoFlux board and will add more to this post as I become more familiar with using it. Excellent. That is great to hear. I got one about a year ago and it works very well. I was surprised that almost all of my floppies I have were still in good working order. And it...

In Memoriam: Radio Shack

So Radio Shack just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. I know that in recent years Radio Shack has been something of a punchline. They even lampooned themselves in an ‘80s themed ad during the Super Bowl last year. The thing that I found funny about the ad was that Radio Shack was awesome in the ‘80s!...

Re: Hunter Hunted movies not playing

Thanks for the help. I'll do a little more research into this first. I'm really wary about installing stuff willy nilly. I did find this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-pictures/how-to-update-windows-media-player-codecs/09ad3325-ef04-4f32-a888-522703e9dfb8?page=1 and ...

Re: Hunter Hunted movies not playing

Okay, interesting. So I made the change to C:\Windows\Sierra.ini file. CDPath was originally pointing to the game directory on the hard drive. So I changed it to D: and this did trigger the movie to play where it was supposed to: after the Sierra logo. BUT, the movie plays audio only. No video. Just...

Re: Hunter Hunted movies not playing

Unfortunately, that didn't work. I used the Command Prompt as a administrator. I did get a message that said the dll was successfully registered, but the movies still won't play, nor can I open them with a media player. When I try, I can hear the audio, but there's no video.

No. I'm afraid that didn't do anything.

Hunter Hunted movies not playing

Hi, I installed Hunter Hunted using Collector's installer and I have one little problem: the intro movie doesn't seem to play in-game. Everything else seem to run fine. I even get the music off of the CD. I think this might be a codec problem. I can't get the AVI files on the disk to play with a med...

Re: Police Quest 2 Walkthrough Problem (spoilers!)

Your gun sights might have to be adjusted more accurately than just hitting the chest region of the target. I don't recall if the game informs you if the sights are adjusted properly or not on Day 2. But this is what I do. Aim for something smaller on the target, like the "1" or "0" in the head or c...

Re: Manhunter playthrough

My pleasure. Maybe I will do more in the future. Maybe the PQ series. PQ1 was my very first Sierra title.

Re: Manhunter playthrough

And thus concludes this little exercise:

I guess whatever adventures our intrepid Manhunter will have in London are left to the imagination.

This has actually been kind of fun. Thank you all for taking an interest.

Re: Manhunter playthrough

In SF, you can actually end Day 1 at the Manhunter's apartment if you leave that for last. The designers actually took that possibility into consideration and the usual "xx Minutes Later" screen that is shown at the end of the day as you return home is left out. You're already there! And easier to s...

Re: From the folks who made the Manhunter series...

They remade Ancient Art of War (which was a pretty fun game, way back in the day!) Collector deserves credit for the find! http://www.evryware.com/ Pretty cool that they are still around. There can't be very many independent game companies that continue to exist after 30+ years. I know that they've...
