Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I think it was a copper key in the second level of the tower. I got in the same situation and simply hexed one as I didn't want to start over. I wrote about it in this thread back in the day, so I looked it up: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=585737#p585737 (it was level 6) And here are my …

Rather than retry EOB1, I'm going to just play EOB2. Maybe my next RPG after the one I'm playing now. My issue was I got into a "can't proceed" situation. I can't remember the details but it involved needing a key to move to the next level that I could no longer get and I didn't have a save prior …

I would urge you to retry EOB1 and Fallout 1 but I can actually see why they may be frustrating from a difficulty standpoint. And for Fallout 1, the UI is pretty bad LOL. Rather than retry EOB1, I'm going to just play EOB2. Maybe my next RPG after the one I'm playing now. My issue was I got into a …

I either play a game to completion without any sabbatical, or DNF and move on. There's not many I've DNF'd: Eye of the Beholder 1 Fallout 1 Worlds of Ultima: Martian Dreams Albion Far Cry 1 Dark Sun: Shattered Lands Betrayal at Krondor The reasons mostly come down to poor UI, difficulty too high, …

Re: List the PC games that you have beaten

in Milliways
Would be nice to play the other games in the series but I have so many PC games to play I'll probably never get around to playing those games in RPCS3. I seldom play games in a series except after a couple of years apart. Wing Commander 1-3 and Wizardry 6-8 were exceptions. Looking at my completed …

Re: Using an FX 5200 for old games

Old topic, but I just have some fun with old GPUs, so I can tell you that FX5200 is one of the worst GPUs ever, if you really want it, take at least 128bit version, 64bit is really really bad. The worst thing is that there is FX5200 LE, but they don't put LE on sticker, so you don't know if it's LE …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit I am now 10 hours in. My characters are level 4 and I'm still very much in the beginning of the game. By now I'm pretty comfortable with the interface, and my previous criticism still stands: for a game (re)made in 2011, navigating the interface is surprisingly …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Interesting, I had never heard of Depth Dwellers! I was as rabid a DOS gamer as there was back then. But granted, I was a young adult at the time, not a kid. Maybe my being 25 had given me enough bad game wisdom that I ignored it without any effort. I like the conclusion you drew for the size of the …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

in Milliways
IIRC, likes has been rejected because of the way that it changes the nature of a board. Things work well already and introducing likes would have a profound effect and would also piss off a lot of the established technical base here. Just the risk of losing important forum members is a good enough …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

in Milliways
I've seen likes implemented on a few forums too, and have only seen the positives in it. There is generally some intitial resistance, because people think it's going to turn into Reddit or Facebook or something. In reality it just gives people a way to show appreciation for a post, without having …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit I spent the past few days doing some research on this game and Eye of the Beholder 2. I loaded both up and messed around with them. I tried EOB2 on my DOS PC as well as modern PC with The All-Seeing Eye. This morning, I spent an hour on Avernum, slowly going through the …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit ... I stuck with a pretty standard starting party: Soldier, Archer, Priest, Sorcerer, and my usual character names: Arnellis (made up), Tanis (from Dragonlance), Nystul (from the Ultima series), and Raistlin (Dragonlance). Haha, very nice. I too used to include AD&D …

I tried playing the original STALKER twice and stopped at around the 2 hours mark both times, the game was not immersive enough to withstand the masochism it required for me, personally.. I actually quite enjoyed the immersion of SoC. I am of Russian descent, and can speak and read rather poorly ( …

Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl Finally finished this game. I started on 1/1/22 and finished on 2/1/22. :) Took a total of 34 hours. I have to admit, starting at The Secret Lab, I used WeMod to turn on unlimited health because it just got TOO HARD. And I'm glad I did because as I got through that …

Re: What game are you playing now?

The quality-of-life improvements would be welcome, but the kicker is I really like playing DOS games on my real DOS PCs. For me, it's part of the whole deal. That's exactly how I feel, and my biggest quandry. :) With the Gold Box series, I'm more apt to use the Gold Box Companion, but EOB2 is right …
