Re: KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

Sorry it took me so long to provide the itemization, it's been a busy month. Some of this is educated guesswork but I hope it proves helpful.

Re: Collector, How could you!!!

For me, installing and setting up the games is half the fun. Back in the "old" days, I sometimes would uninstall games just to reinstall them, as I loved the sound of floppy disk drives at work. (Weird, I know.) Now I have fun writing configuration and batch files to launch them...and using Collecto...

Re: What are you playing now?

Replaying "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" now. So thankful for Xbox One backwards compatibility. I never finished the "HD" version before, got stuck at the final boss. Better luck this time, I'm hoping. I also love the Wii version - same title, completely different game. Ah, I miss my Wii, a...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Not to take the spotlight off Rudy, but I had the good fortune to find this last week:
KQ6.jpg
The box may have been opened, but the disc and guidebook are still sealed up together. So nice to feel that 90s shrink wrap intact.

Re: KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

The sad thing is there's really no "definitive" edition of this game. 2.00b fixed a lot of problems but also introduced some new ones. Nothing game-breaking, but a few animations were incorrectly changed and some music cues cut off. I managed to fix one of the problems via a custom patch, but some ...

KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

Talk about a blast from the past. Last night, for the first time in over 25 years, I encountered the wooden nickel bug in the Faux Shop! Totally my fault, as I'd forgotten to apply the patch (though honestly I didn't think I needed to; assumed ScummVM would've incorporated it along with their other ...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I always assumed that TCB took place in the '20s when she was still in college, but Dagger was several years later, after when she graduated. All of the Art Deco and other things in Dagger scream '30s. Laura's notebook states the year is 1926, a year after TCB. But the overall design of the game do...

Re: What are you playing now?

Having been on an Alien kick lately, I'm giving Alien: Isolation another try on my Xbox One. I love the look and feel of the game, but my TV isn't huge and the text is so small that trying to read it gives me eye strain, so I can't play it for prolonged periods. I've noticed small text appears to be...

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Sorry, I didn't see your response when I wrote mine. As I remember, the scene was edited on my VHS copy, so we're talking some years ago that change was made.

I hope they stick to disclaimers for everything else and don't resort to cutting everything to ribbons.

That Fantasia scene was edited out YEARS ago, so no surprise that's the version on streaming.

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Now, I have heard that Disney have been editing/censoring movies on Disney+ which I think is ridiculously stupid and could start an avalanche of movie censoring going forward that would ruin classics. Movies should be left as they are for better or worse. It's where we came from and we should remem...
