Re: SQ3 Arnoid Possible Timing Issue?

Nasty... I played the GOG version for ScummVM some time ago but I couldn't stand it, went to DOSBox before I even visited Phleebhut. I do recall problems during Astro Chicken. Did you purchase your game via GOG? Astro Chicken's "flying" is toggled by the Up arrow. Press once to start flapping and pr...

Re: Fun with Google.

I just went from Atari to Mayonnaise to Volcanos to Bananas. The speed change don't have to do with the programming. It goes slower when your computer has to think hard. If you use the arrow keys, your browser "selects" one of the pieces (you can tell because numbers appear in the block). Shoddy pro...

Re: Headstone Limericks

I'd love to but I can't. Remember I made illustrated versions of the gravestone limericks? I changed a couple of the names because I wanted to make an alphabet with them ( viewtopic.php?f=65&t=2904 ) but unfortunately I never succeeded in making other limericks.

Re: Fun with Google.

Nice! The text is actually "atari breakout" in Google Image Search. The images turn into a breakout game. After completing a level it does a new "search" and create a new level from a random entry - I went from Atari Breakout to quinoa to Cologne to Abu Dhabi to Borschtsch to Chicago but that's wher...

No life just went ahead of him. I offered to do this because I didn't want the community to perish since I wanted to play more Cluedo.

Re: What are you playing now?

Sigh. Hmm ... who owns the Clue forums? Someone must have started them at some point, and they would have Admin access. If BBP can get in touch with that person, maybe they can grant her Admin access? Or appoint an Admin? That would solve a lot of problems. :) Been trying to get in contact with him...

Re: What are you playing now?

I can delete spammers' posts and ban them, but there's no admin around to prevent them from coming in. Over the past year things have gotten worse with them.

Re: What are you playing now?

Watched some video of AitD - I have two of them but never played them - it's weird how you get a complete image change as soon as you bring up the interface. Combat looks clunky but for the day it was made it must've been quite impressive!

Re: What are you playing now?

Most people agree that the first is the best. I've played both the original and the remake. Remake may have more puzzles but the original is much harder. You can actually die in the original - and the deaths are pretty cruel. Second has some great segments. There's a long Maya disk puzzle that is ve...
