Re: Any good Windows 3.1 games?

Re: those later Sierra SCI games; one of the frustrating things was that they put up a full-color Windows title bar at the very top of the screen, even when the game was in full-screen mode. This was pretty distracting in darker scenes -- really took away from the mood. It's also interesting, in …

Re: IBM PS/1 Audio Card.

Been playing around with the Sierra patcher disk that adds in support for various SCI games. Interestingly the patcher almost works with King's Quest IV -- the opening fanfare sounds but not the rest of the credits music. Turns out this was the same problem mentioned by Great Hierophant here: …

Re: IBM PS/1 Audio Card.

I've split up the intro into three bite-sized pieces: The signing of the will, the introduction of the characters on the stage, and then the cutscene where Laura is sitting outside on the Tulane campus: Will signing Stage Tulane I realize now this …

Been playing around with the Sierra patcher disk that adds in support for various SCI games. Interestingly the patcher almost works with King's Quest IV -- the …

The issue with these is you need specialized tools to release plastic catches inside the monitor, after the screws are removed. I've heard you can fudge it with it with slot covers, but would be wary of sticking anything conductive into part of a monitor that I can't see. If you do find diagrams or …

Re: network shareing method with windows 95 on windows 8?

in Milliways
Well, sure, there's the Microsoft networking client for DOS. But again, the only advantage there is that you can stream data and it most definitely isn't as easy to get going as FTP, at least these days. (It takes up a big chunk of RAM, too.) Curious what the current state of ease/difficulty is to …
