Re: What game are you playing now?

I never played NFS: Porsche when it was released and only played it for a couple of minutes a few weeks ago. With a keyboard! Felt like driving a tank on an ice rink :lol: Should be interesting with my toy wheel, I'll definitely try that at some point in the future. From what I remember, this …

You can choose between the low resolution 320x200 MCGA and high resolution 640x200 EGA mode which uses dithering to display the extra colours. I think this makes the game look very unique for a DOS title and very, for lack of a better word, MSX-y. Apparently the studio's other DOS titles (Zeliard …

I started playing Sierra's Conquest of Camelot and, which is rare for me, played it nearly all the way through to what I assume is the final section. However, turns out that in classic adventure game manner I overlooked a room in the starting location (castle Camelot) where you were supposed to talk …

Lets just say that REMOVED still for now does not have Petsci Robots. But those other games look nice. Project Clover looks exactly what I am talking about. Simple game. Nice late 90s pre 3D graphics aestetics. Tnx HenryVK. Is money an issue? I'll be happy to donate you the 10$ if you are that hard …

I have a short attention span. So like really like the arsthetic of that Planet X3. But just can not get in to it. Make a simple game. Action. Arcade. Platformer. Maybe even adventure. Or even some simple mouse controlled RTS. Main problem with new modern DOS games. They are too sophisticated and …

Speaking of point and click adventures, do you guys still have the patience to play them without a walkthrough? I have to admit that I've lost the patience for them. As a kid, I spent hours just trying to figure out how to leave the garbage ship in Space Quest III. Today, I'd probably cheat after …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 314 - Corncob 3D / Corncob Deluxe is online! This was kind of a weird one to take a look at... Not just because of the premise of fighting aliens with the kind of aircraft we had in the late 40's, but just decoding the nature of how the game was sold was a trip and a half …

Re: Merry christmas 2021 everyone....

In German, the words Christmesse oder Christmette , obviously closely related to "Christmas", still exist but they only refer to the church service held at Christmas or, more specifically, the Hours themselves sung during the night of Dec. 24th. The holiday is referred to as Weihnachten from Middle …

Currently playing The Curse of Rabenstein , a 2020 multi-plattform IF game by Stefan Vogt. I'm playing the MS DOS (VGA) version but I couldn't find a screenshot, so here's the C64 one: https://img.itch.zone/aW1hZ2UvNTA4MzEyLzMxMTI2MjMucG5n/original/kJXrmn.png The game is divided into days and I'm …

Our couple friends are half Canadian.. wait that's phrased pretty awkwardly.. the dude is Chinese-Canadian.. ...anyway, because of this I was just introduced to wonderful Nanaimo bars . And they fing rock! Anyway, for Colonial Genocide Day we had a Turkey with rice stuffing that featured Chinese …

Man, Jagged Alliance just keeps frustrating me to death with UI and saving/restore issues. The latest was I lost 90 minutes of progress because, with me on the edge of the map, trying to flee back to safety, I hit the wrong button and instead of travelling ended my turn. Turns out that was the very …

"Zwetschgenkuchen" have the looks of a special cake (known as Danish in the US) that we have here in Denmark. Actually originates from the island of Fuen. It is called brunsviger, yet the topping is made from boiling brown wet cane sugar, butter and a nip of fresh cream, into a kind of running …

Re: Pool of Radiance keyboard issue

I wouldn't put it past SSI to forget to bounds check menus, and leave you wondering off into unchecked memory. Yep, that seems to have been it: version 1.3 works just fine! Weird that this has not been reported before. Thank you for suggesting I check out other versions. Somehow I was stuck on this …

Re: Pool of Radiance keyboard issue

I'll experiment some perhaps tomorrow, but my gut reaction is that the game might be running too fast? What are you running this on? Even when I got this game in the late 90's on the Forgotten Realms Archives, it shipped with MOSLO to make it playable. Ah, good call, thanks for your suggestion. …

Pool of Radiance keyboard issue [solved]

Hello everyone, I've been meaning to get into the Gold Box series for a while, however, I'm having a problem with the controls. Hopefully this will sound familiar to someone: Basically, scrolling through lists, say during character creation, when I scroll past the bottom most item three cursor …

Even though I like the first game I've noped out from the sequel in record time every time I've tried it. Not a fan of the combat, thanks to the clunky controls and deadly enemies I find it frustratingly difficult. I don't know, maybe I should try to give it a fair chance one of these days. Yes, …

I'm playing Alone in the Dark 2 right now. It definitely has some problems but I actually don't mind the combat that much. I do have to consult a walkthrough here and there. Considering the fact that the very first thing the game throws at you is a hedge maze I'm somewhat impressed that I haven't …

Costco danishes are...okay, I guess? My MIL eats them for breakfast all the time which is somewhat funny because it's so incongruent with when you eat them here in Germany which is more like an afternoon tea/coffee kind of situation or maaaybe with a later morning coffee. But, anyway, Costco …
