Re: Search the Sierra Help Pages

As always, you provide the best possible information, Collector. In a sense, you are the Erasmus of adventure games.

Re: Site Update

I THINK the Shivers I've got is Shivers 2. I'll check.

All the others I could have done are being done! Apart from the Gobliiins sets, but they are in such bad condition it wouldn't be worth scanning them. (They're second-hand, and let's say probably pre-hated rather than pre-loved.)

Re: Gobliiins 3D (Gobliiins 4)

I won't get time today or tomorrow (and probably not Wednesday either) to translate it, because I work and then go straight to rehearsals... and usually get home at midnight. At that point I might be awake enough to make a really late dinner very quickly, or I might be too tired to bother... So it w...

Would I save the ripped audio to the game directory?

Re: The future of ScummVM

Is this better for playing the Gobliiins series than DOSBox?

Re: Guidebook to the Land of the Green Isles

Oh! I definitely want to see that. Do you want a photograph of my KQ Collection for the password?

Re: Hey Collector...

How bizarre...! Playing a computer game designed to be spoken in American English, set in a transmogrified Ancient Greece, in a German translation.

What we do for the love of adventure games is a story in itself.

Re: Hey Collector...

In my opinion, it's a good game. It has a different atmosphere to that of the other KQ games, and (again in my opinion) it's best played as if it's got nothing to do with the KQ series. Just play it as an rpg/adventure mix, don't expect it to have the same atmosphere, and I think you'll enjoy it. It...

Re: Welcome JasefWisener

It's definitely worth haunting eBay for a while, and if you can spot a game there with "BUY IT NOW" at a reasonable price, grab it. If the game is only available with the bidding option, try sniping to avoid driving up the price.

Re: Quest for Glory

To play the games in the ideal environment, first apply the NewRisingSun patches , though. Download, unzip patch into default directory for the respective game, and many of the problems will be solved. Do this before you start playing, though, as you will probably not be able to load save games from...

Re: New content

Collector... brilliance is not too exaggerated a term for what you're doing. I will be using the Codename: ICEMAN information heavily, I suspect. I'm just waiting for a little free time, and I'll be beginning it. In fact, if all I've read about C:I is correct, you will probably hear me wailing in de...
