Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Ok, no problem; you don't need to look at it really, was just wondering if you noticed it.

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Hey Collector, have you been able to save your game? Selecting the option from the menu bar doesn't seem to work.

It's not a big deal since it's easy to skip from level to level, but I was just wondering if you've had a similar experience?

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Yep, I'll keep that in mind, especially if I'm going to be traveling, but right now I'm just excited to be able to play it on my everyday computer!

Thanks again!

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Yeah, I figured it would be tough, and probably more effort than it's worth. I think the best option is to make a duplicate CD of the original and keep that around for easy access... just don't want to damage my original (one of my most memorable childhood birthday presents!) since it's out of print...

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Wow, thanks Collector, this works great! You know this already, but you're awesome! Just one last question: do you know if there's anyway to extract the CD audio so that it's not needed in the drive for the music? I know CD audio is tricky to work with, so I'm guessing the answer's no... but wanted ...

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Thanks Collector. I got the file and installed, but when I try to run the game I get the following error message:

"Lode Runner hasn't been properly installed on this machine. Please run the installer and try again."

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Yep, I see it now on the listing page, but when I click to download I get a 404/page not found error.

Re: new Lode Runner installer (question)

Nah, just tried it, it doesn't work. :(

The installer doesn't recognize the disc and spits it out, asking me to insert the right one.

EDIT: any chance of a Mad Monk-specific installer in the near future?

Re: King's Quest 1996 Calendar?

I actually do have a copy of this! I remember I saw an ad for it in Interaction and had my dad order it for me. I think we must have called in at the end of 1996, the year it was made for, because we got it for really cheap (less than 5 bucks I believe). Really great - and apparently really rare - K...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

I have them all, now. The only thing I am missing KQ wise is all of the different colors of the KQ6 floppy version and the 2nd release of the 1st collection. I have the very first release of KQ1 (the original plastic case) published by IBM, both the gray or silver and the gold boxes of 1-3. Both th...
