I did. It is: great music ("Jasmine"!), quite interesting story, but rather (in my opinion) easy puzzles. The overall atmosphere is OK, it resembles BS 1 and 2. You'll meet Lady Piermont again :)

Re: GK3 gameplay question

Download a free OS, like Lubuntu (32 bit), download free virtual machine, like Oracle VM VirtualBox. Set the properties in VM, install virtual OS, then configure Wine, and install the Game. IMHO it must work.

Re: GK3 gameplay question

Sanitarium wasn't a Steam game, too, and it worked. I think that it's something in your OS settings. EDIT - do you have an older 32 bit OS? You might use Virtual Machine to run it and test. The game also runs on Linux via Wine: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=515 ED...

Re: Gabriel Knight - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

Well, no. It is your turn, besides, I have already asked BBP (well, sorry to bother while Easter...) via PM about the right answer, so that would be kinda "cheating". And I really can't think of any screen quest from GK to start another round :D

Maybe try this: https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/ ... 064638118/

I used it to run Sanitarium in windowed mode.

I know what it is, but since Rath made such an effort to guess it... I won't write it here :D

Those are the beams under the ceiling in the bedroom of the Shattenjaeger Castle. If this is the right guess, I give away my turn ;)

Re: What are you playing now?

I assume you try to run the original Grim Fandango, not the Remastered Edition? There was a glich in this game, on faster machines you had to slow down your CPU. Did you try this - http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/ResidualVM?

Well, Tex Murphy drank a lot. And what about Monkey Island? Not to mention Sherlock Holmes with his scotch and a cigar or a cigarette. ;)

Re: Gabriel Knight - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

Nope. You were closer in your previous guess :)

I could reveal a bit more of this picture scrap, but (I think) that will spoil all the fun.
