Re: Non-Sierra Installers and Patches

Hi Collector, I know it's been a long (long) time since you created the Discworld Noir installer ... but ... would you please mind taking a look at it again? (Pretty please?) :) I tried installing (a full install) and running DWN with it (I still have the original CDs - and they still work after all...

Re: Oh, no. No, no, no! (LSL2 Observation)

Kalalau, as one word, means to call, as one person does to another. Ka-lalau means The wandering one. Also apparently a trail in Hawaii. https://www.kalalautrail.com/ A-ha! So Ka-lalau in the Hawaiian language means roughly the same thing as "Perdita" in Latin: lost, wandering. Not all those who wa...

Re: AGI Art for non-Sierra games

Beautiful. :D I love the details! :lol: The colour on the demon, on the hero's suit, on the lava ... question: what is that door across the lava?

"Slay demon"... Can't stop giggling at that. :lol:

Sierra's answer: "You can't do that."
OR
"Good idea. But first, get a little closer to the demon."

Re: The D&D Corner

Ah ... that (repackaging the character backgrounds as PDFs to sell) was what I meant as a D&D side-business. I doubt that charging $1.99 for them, or $2.99 for the module, would pay all the bills! But it's a little side-earner. ;) As for the other people who want you to host games and things ... how...

Oh, dear. No wonder we eventually see a blushing Larry with a button that says "Oops". ;)

Re: Oh, no. No, no, no! (LSL2 Observation)

Nontoonyt? Oh, yes. "None tonight". Heck, that's easy. ;)

I wonder if the name "Kalalau" (the chief's daughter) means anything, though.

Re: The D&D Corner

Nicely done. :) Why not parlay your expertise with D&D into a side-business venture? Everyone else is doing it! ;)

(And, yes - sorry to derail this thread with "The Simpsons" thing.) *blush*

Re: Describe the least-appealing game

So, does anyone wish to continue this? ;) -You play as a masked, voiceless figure indistinguishable from a typical henchman. -On your way to the first mission, you accidentally trigger and get trapped in a 10-hour side-quest which later turns out to be a DLC. -Every mini-game is a "Simon Says" puzzl...

Re: There and back again; a Neverending Tale. Neverending Nights

*thinks; looks this stuff up* Wow, the Norse sure had a lot of deities. :shock: Buli and Buri and Heimdall and Frey and Frigg and Freyja and ... geez. So many gods and goddesses - 64 of them, according to one account. ;) Vali, Vili, Var, Vor, Ve ... ;) Ah, well - now we know where Tolkien got the na...

Oh, no. No, no, no! (LSL2 Observation)

So. Sorry, folks - it's confession time. :P I was a teenager the first time I played LSL2, and of course I recognised the whole Communist slant and so on. But since English wasn't my first language, the name of the final villain, Dr Nonookee, meant very little to me. Anyway, time passed, and I playe...

Re: The D&D Corner

:lol: Not yet. Don't know how many - let's see: they started in 1990, so ... yup, it'll be 31 this year. But yes, I agree: The Simpsons has its moments now - and they're good moments, sometimes brilliant - but they're fewer and further apart. Whereas it used to be a jokefest when it started. ;) Oh, ...

Re: Johnny Castaway

That was a magic palm tree, of course. :lol: Johnny gets a lot of things from behind that tree - a rubber boot to roast over his fire, a track suit ... ;) And, of course they cut to black when Johnny was bathing in the sea and the bird stole his pants. (That always happens). :lol: But why does the "...

Re: There and back again; a Neverending Tale. Neverending Nights

Oh! I was trying to think of all the D&D gods/goddesses I could remember, but I couldn't remember anything remotely like "men" or "Nen". ;) Thanks for explaining. The closest I could think of, on the spur of the moment, was Lolth - and that's only because both names have just one syllable. :lol: But...

Re: The D&D Corner

;) They've done a lot of good stuff since season 2 or 3. But I agree: during the first few seasons, when it was new and fresh, many of the best ideas went into making the show. Characters were developing, and even being re-coloured. The writers had a lot more freedom with what the characters could d...
