Hmmm... Windows 98 help.

OK, here's the situation: I'm currently dual-booting, using two hard drives (which I named C and D). Drive C is running Windows 2000; Drive D is running Windows XP (with Service Pack 2). What I want to do is install Windows 98 on drive C so that I can run old legacy games on it - QfG, Grim Fandango,...

Re: What are you playing now?

I'm playing Age of Empires III, NWN1, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Again. :P

I'm also hoping to replay (in the fullness of time) GK1, GK3, QfG1-5, Discworld II, Discworld Noir, MI3, MI4, and Grim Fandango. Again. :P

(And to do that, I'm planning to use an old Win98 computer that I have...) ;)

Re: Monkey island for free (Today only through 12am PST)

Yes. You buy the whole series now and get each chapter of the game as they're completed and released. Then after they're all released (I imagine there'd be a certain amount of time) you can get a free DVD case with all the chapters on disc and possibly (usually, like they're other series of games) ...

Re: Monkey island for free (Today only through 12am PST)

Aw, I missed it. :-(

Is there a way I can buy the series on disc, so that I can put it on the shelf with the rest of my Monkey Island CDs/DVDs? ;-)

Does anyone know...

...what has happened to http://www.questforheroes.com ? Whenever I try to go there, I'm rewarded merely with a blank white screen. :( Does anyone know what's happened?

Re: SHP #5 Poll: Best Adventure Hero (Tier 2)

1. George Stobbart.

2. Adam Greene.

3. This time I'll vote for Manny Calavera - mostly because, being dead, he can't be hurt by Freddy's six-shooters. ;)

4. Larry Laffer, easily.

5. Laura Bow.

6. Roger Wilco.

7. Gabe - again, easily.

8. The Prince of Shapeir (once again, easily) ;)

Re: SHP #5 Poll: Best Adventure Hero (Tier 1)

1. George Stobbart. I don't know enough about Woodruff. 2. I don't know either of these. 3. Adam Greene, I guess, but only because I don't know who Pepper Pumpernickel is. 4. Bernard Bernoulli, but only because I don't like KQ too much. 5. Eh? Freddy every time. ;) 6. Manny has to win this one. Sorr...

I did like it better. I finished it. :lol: But I did miss, in a way, the blockiness of the EGA graphics. ;)

Re: New Space Quest II Remake Trailer!

Ironic, as those are the only SQ games where you have to type at all. :P I used to absolutely hate SQ1 because my Roger would always get shot by the aliens in the human ship before I had a chance to hide. Poor Roger. :( The parser being used was the same one as the one for LSL1 EGA, so it took me s...
