I am not sure that the game BBP posted is Flash - since Chrome doesn't support flash - but it worked.
Most likely HTML5.

Re: Post Flash Games Here!

See if you have a Flash applet in your control panel. Under the security tab you might find a setting for storing game data on your hard drive and add the site to the white list.

Re: King's Quest VI DOSBox crash

The required game files from that collection are packed in the InstallShield cab files. Simply copying them over to your hard drive will not extract them. You have to install them first. The patch is for those that have already used the installer on the discs. It is best to use the new installers fr...

Re: GOG no longer DRM-free?

Wouldn't checkpoints require much of the same character, and item, stats variables as save anywhere? Perhaps not a few things like location coordinances or in a 3-D game, point of view, but most of the rest of it.

On a side note, Romero is a member of the Big Box PC Game Collectors FB group and his wife Brenda is a mod. It has afforded some insight to his gaming history.

Re: Druid: Daemons of the Mind (DOSBox Issue)

Be sure your mounted hard drive is mounted as c and your image is mounted as d. No need to assign letters the same as you host's system. Some installers and programs look for contiguous drive letters and stop looking at an unassigned letter, so start at c and work your way up sequentially.

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.
