Re: What game are you playing now?

Phantasie (Apple II) I had known about this series of RPGs from back in the day, as I saw it mentioned in SSI catalogs and had (briefly) played the first game on my friend's Atari ST. For some reason, I decided earlier this week to start playing the first game in the series. ---------- Rambling …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Demon's Winter (Apple II) This is a childhood favorite of mine from back on the C64, though I never got very far at all back then. I did get quite a ways into the C64 version a year back or so (on actual hardware, using an Ultimate II with images taken from original disks [not cracked]), but ran …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

1985-1995 for me. The encompasses the best years of the C64, the rise of PC compatibles (and DOS) as a legitimate gaming platform, and much of the 8/16-bit console library. As a massive RPG fan then and now, the number of amazing RPGs that came out over these 10 years is simply unbelievable. So many …

Re: Some Questions about Selling Big Box Games

I am in the same boat as Kreshna. I have a small collection of actual boxed games that I bought off Ebay, but I did so under the assumption that the disks would not necessarily work. I just wanted the box/artwork, manuals, maps, etc. Surprisingly, all the disks were functional, but I would have been …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Spirit of Adventure (DOS) I took my first step out into the wilderness, but the encounters are MUCH more difficult, even around the town. After just three battles my whole party was dangerously low on HP and several members were poisoned, so I headed back to town for healing. I was able to earn …

Re: The Roland CM-500 GS/LA Sound Module

Just to explain this, the reason this "bug" occurs is that 16-channel MIDI wasn't really a thing in 1988-1991, so Sierra composers put Adlib, PC Speaker and other conversions on 1 and 11-16, channels that the MT-32 doesn't have (2-10 only). So having those channels on means you hear duplicate and …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I got a bit burnt out on Lords of Xulima (played it waaaay too much over the weekend), so I'm taking a break from it for a while. I got a nice new mechanical keyboard for my DOS machine, so decided to spend some quality time with that: Spirit of Adventure This is basically Realms of Arkania 0. It …

Re: Most important games

Impossible Mission I played this on my uncle's C64 and immediately knew I had to get a C64 for myself. This is doubly important for me, because the C64 was my first computer (besides a hand me down Atari 800 XL I barely ever touched)... and also my introduction to computer role playing games (I had …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I had a lot of fun with this game. I played and beat it back between February and May of 2018, if you're interested in searching my comments on it. Thanks for mentioning this, I went back and found your posts. I agree 100% so far, though I'm still early into the game (maybe 10 hours or so). Did you …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Lords of Xulima I've had this in my Steam library for some time now, but finally decided to play it. I ended up getting quite addicted to it, and played it for 5-6 hours straight. It's been years since I've done that! The best way of describing this game is classic Might & Magic with an isometric …

Re: The Roland CM-500 GS/LA Sound Module

You can check CM-500 buy connecting it to the another computer with DosBox or ScamVM and test how games play MIDI. It also could be a bad capacistors in the sound module or card. I can't check this as mine CM-500 is still in delivery Thanks! I checked and it does the same thing with dosbox running …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Thanks for the review. Does it have an auto note-taking feature, or do you need to do so manually to remember things for later quests? That's one thing I don't miss about old games: manual mapping and note-taking. It doesn't have an auto-note taking feature unfortunately, but does have an auto-map.

Re: What game are you playing now?

Lurking: Immortui (PC) Finished! This is a really fantastic classic style CRPG, heavily inspired by Ultima III through V. The game allows for full party creation right from the start, and uses a character creation system based on skill points. Each character has a set of attributes (that mostly …

Re: The Roland CM-500 GS/LA Sound Module

I have a CM-500 but it seems to have a strange hanging note issue that is not caused by my MIDI interface (tried both an AWE32 and PCMIDI card—both my MT32 and SC55 work fine on both of these FYI). I notice it most often when I play Wing Commander 1, where if my ship gets damaged (causing a loud …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Lurking: Immortui (PC) I have really been getting into this one recently. It's an indie RPG you can find on itch.io for the price of "pay what you want." https://oklabsoft.itch.io/lurking Like Ultima, the game is all about exploring and gathering information. It uses a similar keyword-based …

Re: vintage open world games

Darklands is a prime example of an open-world RPG, and Betrayal at Krondor. Although most of the early RPG (ultima series, fallout series, magic candle/legacy of the ancients/etc. etc. ad nauseum) were very open-world to be honest. Seconded. The main appeal of Ultima (specifically 7 tho) was always …
