Re: Toys of your childhood...

The most memorable toy that comes to mind from my chidhood is https://www.dallasvintagetoys.com/images/products/detail/knightriderkitta0811.JPG https://www.dallasvintagetoys.com/images/products/detail/knightriderkittb0811.JPG You could press the number plate and it would say random phrases in KITT's...

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

Very sad to just hear of the passing of Rene Auberjonois (Odo from Deep Space Nine).

We lost DC Fontana (writer) just a few days ago, and Aron Eisenberg (Nog) earlier this year.

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

Anyone else excited for Star Trek Picard?
I'm really pleased with what we've seen so far and am very pumped for January.

Very cool.

Well. These are all fairly obvious too. I'd hope.

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Don't think it's available in Australia yet. My next streaming site sign-up will be Amazon Prime for Star Trek Picard. No doubts the kids will bug me for Disney Plus when it arrives here. Not sure I have room in the budget for yet another service, but I'll admit I'm curious about the Mandalorian so ...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I hate basic. It gives me a headache just trying to read it. I started on Visual Basic, but have successfully purged it out of my head a long time ago, thank God. C# is fun. Having worked with both Visual Basic and c# for the better part of my adult life at the day job, I can concur. C# is much nic...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I looked into AGT - downloaded it - and... All I see is a RUN.EXE and a COMPILE.EXE and a 200 page document to read. And you said this was easier? :lol: LOL. I seem to remember some pretty significant examples games all with full source code. But, yeah, it was a loooong time ago. You know, back in ...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I remember using an engine called AGT (Adventure Game Toolkit) back in the day. Easier than implementing my own parser. It's been released into freeware now. Downloaded Final Soul and had a quick play with it at lunch time today. Your short list of single letter commands is interesting, because it s...

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'll be live-streaming a Sierra game marathon to raise money for sick kids through Extra Life this weekend. Extra Life is a charity where people play games to raise funds for the children's miracle network hospitals, providing vital treatment to kids whose famil...

I think Baked Potato was tassieboy, since he showed up only briefly.
Yep. I joined in late and then got super busy with work. Sorry about that.

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I really need to play the original Laura Bow games in preparation for this, which I've been meaning to do for ages anyway.

The wristwatch is round with yellow glow-in-the-dark hands. It emits a rhythmic ticking.

Re: Gold Rush!

This is very exciting news. I never owned the original Gold Rush and the version on sarien.net was pretty buggy when I tried it. It's exciting that they have aquired the rights to do this legally. I would imagine that means the game will not be free like a lot of other Sierra remakes. That's ok, I w...
