Re: Larry 6: Cut babes and beta image?

I remember there being some discussion about those scans a while ago, and I was able to track down a thread on the Sierra Music Central forums where someone confirms that yes, the first girl is indeed Passionate Patti: I asked [Al] about it today and he said there were 2 girls in it they cut, the Am...

Re: Space Quest: Vohaul Strikes Back

I played VSB and I loved it. I admit that I wasn't following the project closely enough over the years to come up with any real expectations, but if I had any expectations, I'm sure the game would have exceeded them. It's really a treat to play the first SQ fangame that isn't an interquel or a prequ...

Re: Shivers

I've played Shivers several times, and while I'm not sure whether I would dub it the best Sierra game ever, it is still pretty darn good. The soundtrack has to be one of its strongest suits, and I love the way the main theme reappears throughout the game, yet it varies so much that it never becomes ...

Re: Questionnaire

1. I'm not sure I understand the question...are you asking what my favorite character out of all of Sierra's games is? If so, I'd say Rathbone from Dr. Brain 3. 2. King Graham. 3. The dwarf from KQ1. 4. Either 7 or 3. 5. The whale's tongue from KQ4. 6. None immediately sprang to mind, but I eventual...

Re: Legality of downloads on Christy Marx's website.

According to archive.org, those games were on her site since 2004 (and possibly even earlier than that). I highly doubt she or any other designers have permission to offer these games for download, but they've probably gone unnoticed because they're so low-profile compared to King's Quest, Space Que...

Re: KQ6 in AGI

Wow -- this has to be the most ambitious AGI project I've ever seen!

(It reminds me: Wasn't there a person on the IA forums who was doing a MOE de-make in 4 color CGA a while ago?)

Re: what game is this? (act 2)

You're welcome!

(To be honest, I think I just skipped over the bit about the boat being docked, but everything else just screamed Goblin's Quest 3 to me.)

Re: what game is this? (act 2)

That game has to be Goblin's Quest 3.

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted here already (unless I missed it)! http://gamasutra.com/view/news/37295/Sierra_Founders_Ken_And_Roberta_Williams_Donate_Company_Archive_To_Museum.php This seems pretty interesting.

Re: Unused screens from KQIV?

Hmm...interesting! Looks like there were more than half a dozen unused screens sitting in KQIV's files and I never realized it until now. I wonder why the AGI version doesn't have the night version of the castle, though.

Unused screens from KQIV?

Hi, I was browsing through the resource files of KQ4 a while ago, and I noticed that there were night versions of all the exterior scenes of Genesta's island. I didn't recall ever visiting that location at night in KQIV, so out of curiosity, I started the game up and attempted to do just that. Howev...

Re: Adventure: All in the Game

Does this game use a MIDI soundtrack as well? I'm on Windows 7 now and working with MIDI programs is a pain. Just wondering if I have to mess with it. Currently I hear no music on the menu screen. The game's music is a mix of MIDIs, MP3s and the occasional OGG Vorbis, and there's no music on the me...

Re: Adventure: All in the Game

Kudos to Akril, the game was a lot of fun!! If you ever make a third game I'd def love to see more moments like the scene in Space Quest 4 where you have to conduct your business and not be spotted by the main character/player doing theirs. Maybe have a moment where say Vohaul rebels and tries to s...
