It's getting awkward now. Really, really awkward. *shrug* (And yes, I watched the whole thing...) ;) Perhaps 1988 was a different time, a different place? *shrug*

Incidentally - oh, dear ... you missed an excellent gag that the game tells you. ;-)

When Larry sits at the computer for Chief Kenenau-Keanu-Reeves (however you spell it :P), he - Larry - writes a new piece of software in assembly language; this is a very, very early programming language (1949-present). It's a low-level symbolic code converted by an assembler. And what does Larry write?

Eunuchs. *face palm* A double pun!!! One of Al's best puns!!! :P A reference to Larry's continual search for love/lust, and - er ... well, say the word "Eunuchs" and see what it reminds you of ...

(...if it doesn't remind you of anything, the answer is below - but, I warn you, it's a really, really bad pun ... so bad it's good...) ;)

Unix. ;) :P

Yes, Larry writes Unix in about 15 seconds. The same OS that it took a research team at AT&T years and years to create. :ugeek: The same OS that, today, is the basis of MacOS, and therefore of all Apple iProducts. And Larry writes it all. In 15 seconds.

My hero, indeed. :P So Larry is to blame for all the Apple fanbois, all the Apple hype - the whole, entire iFad. ;)

I watched. It seems that after a restart, the capture is missing the bottom a bit.
Aside from that. Nice commentary and I didn't have awkward feelings like Rath had.

Hah! Rath is referencing my own comment where the game just doesn't seem to end... and you just see Larry and Kalalau seemingly just... going at it on the beach behind the bushes...
So I end it with saying, "This is getting awkward... real awkward..." :lol:

Hah! Fear not, I caught the Unix joke. :)

So, that is random - you see it appears and disappears.
So when I capture in DOSBox, Sony Movie Studio Platinum (which I use for edits) refuses to accept the captures. I've tried installing the ZBAC (or however) codec, even as Admin, and it's to no avail.
So what I do is run it through Handbrake - which for some reason, on some changed it from 320x200 to 320x199 (or something similar) - so on some of the captures the "score" line or the bottom disappear. It's not a big deal. But it's not an issue with DOSBox, it's something with how Handbrake was handling some of the captures when converting them to something that SMSP can open.

EDIT: Added to the Wiki, Collector.

I assume that's the right one. Have it opening in a new window and everything.
