Re: Manhunter playthrough

And Manhunter: New York concludes with Day 4: http://youtu.be/IdQOqhsOGSE I shot them an email asking about Manhunter. :) See what you've done, notbobsmith! :lol: :) Thanks for asking. There must be some interest from fans of the adventure genre. The core "Quest" titles have all been re-released on ...

Never posted to Youtube before. And I'm pretty sure no one wants to hear me talk.

Re: Manhunter playthrough

I might do that. It'll be pretty dull, though. I don't have a mic so I can't record a commentary. I should have recorded a video 10 years ago, but then I'm not sure if DOSBox could do that back then.

Manhunter playthrough

So tomorrow I will start another playthrough of the Manhunter games. It's been exactly 10 years since the last time I played. Why 10 years? The last time I played, I wanted it to coincide with the timeline of the game, playing each day on the actual date in the game. Day 1 of Manhunter: New York was...

Inherit the Earth 2 kickstarter

I actually hadn't heard of the original until I purchased it off GOG.com and found it to be an enjoyable adventure title. I've since found that the developers have remained pretty loyal to the fans by upgrading the original to run on modern systems (even before the GOG release) and maintaining a web...

Re: PQ3 ending

Hmmm. Not sure what else it could be. I found in a walkthrough that you can kiss her again on Day 4 and you aren't awarded any points, but I don't think that's it. I'm not sure what else you can do.

Re: PQ3 ending

Still have no clue. If it helps, I bought "additional" roses on everyday. Maybe that was the bug? Possible. I can't say I've ever tried doing that. As you give Marie each item, her condition improves. The game says stuff like "You think you see her smile", "She looks more comfortable" with each ite...

Re: PQ3 ending

You are correct, the max score you can get is 450. There are several things you can do for Marie over the course of the game, and I believe you have to do all of them for her to recover. The locket was one. One Day 2 you can give her the music box and a rose and then kiss her. One Day 4 you notice t...

Re: SWAT 2 (GOG version) no audio in movies

This is what I got from GOG.com support: 1) Please make sure that you use "Run as Administrator" to install and to start the game (right-click on the shortcut or setup file and select "Run as Administrator"). 2) Please reinstall the game and add it to your anti-virus/firewall software's exception/tr...

Re: SWAT 2 (GOG version) no audio in movies

Interesting. I guess it's inevitable that older titles are going to become increasingly difficult to run on modern systems. I just bought a new system and have been installing everything and have been pretty lucky so far. I'd read on the GOG forums people who convert the videos from SWAT 3 to addres...

Re: SWAT 2 (GOG version) no audio in movies

Yes! This worked. Thank you. At first I got an "Error Code 0x8000ffff" when I tried it the first time, but fortunately I reread your post and used administrator rights and it worked like a charm. And I had just sent a message to GOG support, too. :) I'll see what GOG has to say. They had general sup...

SWAT 2 (GOG version) no audio in movies

Hi, I'm trying to run the GOG version of SWAT 2 in Windows 7 64-bit, but the audio in the movies is missing. The audio for the rest of the game is fine. The only information I've been able to find is that I might be missing an audio codec, but I'm not sure if I'm comfortable installing something fro...

Re: Reading off my old 5.25" floppies...

http://www.hampa.ch/pce/index.html I actually don't have any Sierra titles with copy protection, but I do have other games and it seems that PCE might be an option. Since someone was able to get Space Quest to work, I thought this might be of interest to you. But information about PCE is... sparse. ...
