Re: Report forum issues.

I think Rath needs to replace his security software and leave the new software set to defaults.

I take it that the Jones is a replacement for one that you sold. How about the diskette version?

Re: Quest for Glory 2 EGA crashing at intermission

I am the one that originally designed the GOG QfG release, but they have been tampering with it since. Of course the latest has been to rip out the DOS executables and ram ScummVM down their customer's throats. Of course the lesson of this is to always keep your older GOG installers.

Re: Quest for Glory 2 EGA crashing at intermission

Doesn't the GOG release now yse ScummVM? The SVM saves are not compatible with the original saves. This is not a common SCI error and when I checked it seems to be a SVM error message.

Andrea Has Book Coming Out!

This is out in a week. I would like to say, like Fleabag does, that this a love story (and maybe in part it is), but mostly it is a ghost story. https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/s960x960/118790276_2955684914659003_4769608445686452470_o.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=KX2d1z7RpmM...

Re: My Shivers 2 playthough

Not sure I would call it an FMV. The cutscenes are with real actors, but the game itself is more of a prerendered "2.5-D" game with first person perspective.

Re: Pharaoh: A New Era

Somehow it doesn't seem right not having Impressions doing it, but then since they do not exist anymore... Can't say I like the cartoony art. Seems like the only ones doing more realistic art these days are the high end 3-D games

Re: Ken & Robert share HIGH SCOREs on Netflix.

Sounds like it was produced by kids raised mostly on the likes of Nintendo and were barely aware of how much gaming was going on on PCs. And by PCs I am including all of the micro machines of the era, Apple, Commodore, Atari, Amiga, etc., not just IBM and compatibles.

Re: TV Series

Waiting for the next se4ason of The Expanse. Probably the best SF show currently in production. Very reminiscent of Niven's "Known Space" space series. If you like hard SF I highly recommend it. It is on Prime.
