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.

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

C# is pretty easy to learn.

Re: DOSBox ECE + Pixel Perfect.

Captures are another matter. For captures you can resize after capture. Since 1600px x 1200px is an even multiple of 320x200 and 320x240 it will give you even blocks for pixels after resizing. It is what I have been doing for the Wiki's screen captures. http://wiki.sierrahelp.com/images/f/f1/KQ4-006...

Re: DOSBox ECE + Pixel Perfect.

I know what it does. ECE has the Pixel Perfect that needs nothing more to work. Here is TCB in ECE with nothing different settings than what I would have in stock DOSBox: http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=4681&p=62520#p62520 You can see that all pixels are the same height (pixel perf...

Re: DOSBox ECE + Pixel Perfect.

Not an installer, just a ZIP. It looks like nothing more than just the DBGL package with DOSBox ECE thrown in. For all I know, Ronald may have already added ECE to his DBGL package. If you do not need a frontend all you really need is DOSBox ECE and the MT-32 ROMs. https://dosboxece.yesterplay.net/e...

I don't see it as "cartoony" myself. To me, it simply looks like modern graphics cartoons.

Re: "Lady Detective" game... is it... Laura Bow?

I'm just so burned out on the cartoony style. It is one thing for LSL to be cartoony being a pure comedy, but seems inappropriate to me for LB. That said, I would love to see new LB games otherwise.

Re: Question re: SQ series

If I had to rank the two franchises... KQ4 KQ6 KQ3 (Yes, despite my hatred of Manahahahahahahananannaan) KQ7 KQ5 KQ2 KQ1 And for Space Quest... SQ3 SQ4 SQ5 SQ6 SQ2 SQ1 Game play wise, for SQ, I'd probably prefer 2 and 1 over 6, but the narrator is too incredible in SQ6 to let it sit at the bottom. ...
