Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

You can take screenshots with DOSBox by pressing ctrl-F5. That's the secret code I also used for all the screenshots I made of among others SQ2, SQ3, Phantas 1, the stint where I had a mini Gabriel, and a whole bunch of "great game accomplishments" . These screen shots automatically have the right a...

Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

Sooo I replayed the game - not to play "is it in or not" since watching the DUKs was easy enough, but to try to get all the easter eggs and to make screenshots. In the "is it in" quest I found that the reference to Hotel Terminus is not ingame - if I hadn't made the script, I wouldn't have known the...

Re: What are some bands/albums that were defining for you?

Phase III of the musicology student talking: In 2002 I started my musicology studies. From a financial and a career point of view it may have been the worst decision I have ever taken but besides meeting myself I got to meet one of my best friends and a lot of other wonderful people. And I got to kn...

Re: Script party!

And here's the Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle Of Flesh script! Phantas 2 has a bit of placeholder art and the occasional video that has been misplaced. There is a resource.msg that contains all text that occurs ingame. In it are all texts you can get while attempting to talk to the Creatures from Dimensio...

Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

Digging through the game files I couldn't find the one Notbobsmith refers to (the one in Chap 1 that is supposed to be in black & white) but there is one weird duck on disk 1: it's called 6230.DUK and shows Curtis in the network room, jumbling computer wires under the desk and ooze coming out of the...

Re: What are some bands/albums that were defining for you?

No parental influence from me for as far as classical music is concerned. At elementary school we were taught music once a week and sang twice a week, which is quite much compared to most schools. With the music class we interacted with known classics, sometimes we made our own music and sometimes w...

Re: What are some bands/albums that were defining for you?

Are You Sure You Want To Hear This From A Musicologist? For every one I name I can think of another one that really needs to be mentioned and before you know it I'm up all night adding so much to your thread you won't recognize it anymore. :D Y'all know I'm a huge Zappa fan, Primus fan, Dir En Grey ...

Re: So which house are you staying in and why?

I don't know You Don't Know Jack and well, Phantas 2 is one I really need to go through again now but it's so hard to set myself to it, but Hoyle Classic, that's brilliant. It's my favourite cribbage AI and if I turn off the sound and put on my own albums I can play for hours. Toss-up between room 8...

Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

Phantas 2 sure has a lot of shout-outs. I catalogued some of them. Weird thing is that almost all unseen Wyntech employees are named after famous killers - except three, Aileen Wooley, Fionnula Jeter and Andrei Carboni. I wonder where these names come from. Joe Kallinger (The Shoemaker, serial kille...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

DeviantArt did, they always have some April Fool's gag where you can earn a badge and where they have a lot of artwork done for. They had made an announcement that they were blocking all entries with the character Hooves - a brown unicorn with pink manes, cyan human-like lips and horn, a moustache, ...

I know thst feeling Rath... But we're the ones with the advantage since we might get a new dimension to playing for the second time than many native speakers do. :D

Laura Bow The Platformer. That's great, that means that not taking the two guys from Andromeda into account, every attempt to rehash Sierra IP is a total bust.

Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

Currently I'm battling Phantasmagoria 2 - A Puzzle Of Flesh. It's been so long since I last played this game that I don't remember what to do at the point I'm currently at: Day 2, I've found the note with the three words and the button and the memo on the board, but I'm not sure what I can do now.

Re: BBP vs Phantasmagoria!

It does take a bit to activate it - first Harriet appears in the kitchen, then the hall by the door, then the library, then Don and Adrienne's bedroom, then the bathroom. You can give her the tarot cards or ask her about the greenhouse in every scene . After that you can visit her and Cyrus in the b...
