Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Enterprise was....alright. ... The third season is more out of character for enlightened post-WW3 Star Trek humanity than DS9 was by going on a war mission in the heart of an unexplored area of space to take revenge on an alien species called the Xindi who Starfleet thinks killed some humans or som...

Re: Request for Screenshot(s) - Diskette Install message(s)

If your games include "INSTALL.EXE", "INSTALL.SCR", "INSTALL.TXT", and "INSTALL.HLP" you cn mount its folder in DOSBox as a floppy drive and if you also mount another folder as C: and run INSTALL.EXE from your "A:" drive you can see the installer. Thank you for the scre...

Request for Screenshot(s) - Diskette Install message(s)

Hello, all. This is a kind of strange request. I'm looking for at least one example screenshot of the type of install messages that would accompany the later Sierra games that had numerous diskettes. I don't mean the set-up screen for graphics, music, mouse, etc. Instead, I'm looking for the message...

Re: Designing a Quest for Glory Spinoff -

A Katrina origin story might be interesting - exploring her life before she was a vampire and after she became one, the evolution of her powers and her descent into darkness. Prior to their Hero-U Game Kickstarter, Lori Cole used her School For Heroes blog to discuss the women of the Quest For Glor...

Perhaps the offer was void on Labion? (It was written in really, REALLY fine print? Like, microscopic-sized?...) :lol:

Re: Thexder 95 - Full game thinks it's a demo

A belated follow-up: I recently created a Windows XP Virtual Machine. Running that OS in a VM (and not on actual hardware), the Sierra set-up program for Thexder 95 didn't "see" that I had enough RAM, though in actuality I had plenty. So, I installed it using Collector's program with the ISO I made ...

I would be interested in that, too, Collector.

Re: Star Wars: Rogue One [Spoilers Within]

Because of the mythos/backstory alluded to in the Original Trilogy, the prequel movies were in the unfortunate position of trying to cover TOO MUCH ground, story-wise: the fall of the Old Republic/rise of the Galactic Empire, the Clone Wars, the fall of Anakin/rise of Vader, etc. It was this urge to...

Re: Favourite Sierra Deaths - Collection

QfG3... not that many deaths, but many hilarious sights, like... the awful waffle walker. *snerk* We dig - earth pigs! Not a death, but too good to pass up. ;) Laurel and Hardy. As for deaths... hmm. I don't think I died in QfG3, ever (except in battles). My favorite from QFG3: 1. Use Tinderbox on ...
