I was fine with the changes they made in LOTOR; because overall, I felt it still told a good story.

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

Of the first five ST shows, DS9 is my favorite by far. It really finds its groove in later seasons, where there are much longer, continuous story arcs across numerous episodes or an entire season. It's turned out to be perfect "binge TV" now -- made in the 1990s before such a thing even existed -- b...

Re: Thexder II: Firehawk won't accept any passwords

I figured out the problem: On the main menu screen, not only can you use <Enter> to advance your selection, but you can also use the <Space Bar>. Having recently played Zeliard, I used the Space Bar here to advance to the next menu, too, instead of using the Enter key. However, when you select "Star...

Re: Thexder II: Firehawk won't accept any passwords

I just gave it a try with a couple of passwords and didn't have any problems. Can you provide an example? What the game asks for and the word that you entered? I can then compare it to my manual. Thank you for the reply; I'll give you some examples in a PM when I get home tonight. (Don't want to be...

Thexder II: Firehawk won't accept any passwords

Decided to play Firehawk this evening, but I'm running into an odd problem: the game will not accept any of the passwords it's requesting. It's not a issue of me not choosing the correct word, or a confusion as to whether a black space _IS_ considered a "line" or a subtitle _IS_NOT_ considered a "li...

One of our business teachers in high school would explain why (at the time) push lawn mowers in the United States had a warning label not to use them to trim the hedges... ...because some idiot used it to trim his hedges, severely hurt himself, then sued and won because there was "no label" explicit...

Re: Huzzah!!

QfG3 must be easier than I remember. I just defeated it with a paladin. ;) Onward and upward! Time to beat it with a wizard and a rogue -- and then it's on to Mordavia! :D Just wondering, by the way: is there any point to playing the game as a fighter? I mean, I've already beaten it as a paladin. I...

Sounds like you had a full-blown Sue Ellen Mischke situation on your hands, Darth.
Sorry, that should have said "Rath"... guess I was looking at the SW/ST thread, and my brain got mixed up. :(

Re: SOLVED: RAMA remove/increase time limit in the last part

Interesting. Looks similar to the way Thexder 95 counts ammo or inventory items. The resulting decimal value here appears to be total seconds remaining: Offset(h) # -- values 0A & 0B: xy zn 0A = xy = (16^1)*x + (16^0)*y = 16x + 1y 0B = zn = (16^3)*x + (16^2)*n = 4096z + 256n 0A 0B = 16x + 1y + 4096z...

From 2015, here's an "audiovisual" adaptation of a fan's English interpretation of the 2010 Portuguese fan-made "Dungeons & Dragons - Requiem" comic book... <whew!> Found in the YouTube explanation/comment section ("SHOW MORE") is also a link to download said English-interpreted comic book (in cbz f...
