All right then (with a few quotes thrown in just for fun):

The King's Quest series (particularly 7: "Did you say...'we?' I presume you mean yourself and your...tapeworm?" --Dr. Mort Cadaver)

The Space Quest series (particularly 6 "Say, you look familiar...didn't I kick your butt in a huge robot once?" --Roger Wilco)

Goblin's Quest 3 ("I am scared of spiders? I donít understand.Ē --Wolfy)

The Longest Journey ("Locked -- it's LOCKED?! There are three hundred women here and the ladies' room is LOCKED?? Good GAWD!" --April Ryan)

Oh yeah. And Monkey Island 3, of course.

As for upcoming games...I hope Al Lowe plays at least SOME part in LSL8, and even though Syberia reminded me of a 3rd person Myst (don't get me wrong, I like Myst. Really.) I'll probably be getting Syberia II.

It's funny cause I posted this topic with a feeling of incompletion...

...I'd say Broken Sword would be above Indy: FOA and below DOTT for sure.

Actually, it's tough to place, because I haven't played it in a while....(I have XP and ScummVM isn't compatable with the game).

If change compatibility mode to run WIn 95/98, you can play it fine, I just played through BS1 a couple days ago, and I gots XP.

Just about everything posted here, big favorites are...

Monkey Island 2
Monkey Island 3
Day of the Tentacle
Doom (dooom, doooooom! :D )
Doom II
Metal Gear Solid (though it was a challenge!:mad: )
Aliens Ate My Baby Siter! (Keen) (old, old favorite)
Soul Reaver
Spyro the Dragon (its the only game I know of where you can play as a dragon, and its very pretty, so shove off!)


And MediEviL. Its a hidden gem in my opinion. Its affected my art in ways...WHAT?! SHOVE OFF, ITS BRITISH!

MediEviL2 was an extreme dissapointment (as well as made a certain FanFic null...:rolleyes: )

Aliens Ate My Baby Siter! (Keen)

whoa. that's weird. i used to play that. and it feels like a looong loong time ago. i don't get that. why does loooong sound like laaaaawng. shouldn't it be just what it's like? a bunch of o's should make an "oo" sound. anyway...

i don't play too many video games or anything so my "favorites" might not be too qualified, considering i haven't played trillions upon trillions of games or anything.

i like the sims...bustin' out is a little better than the original sims (for gamecube)

of course the monkey island series. why eltse (remember that?) would i be here?

not too much else. even though they suck, i still like the survivor computer games a little bit.

not sure what else...i like metroid.

uh...that's probably about it.

sorry that i didn't have a super-duper exciting list there...

How do I go about doing that?

Properties of the executable.

Guybrush122
01-25-2004, 01:32 PM
Forgive my ignorance...but huh? I see no executable properties.

And if you're talking about changing the properties of the .exe file for Broken Sword, that doesn't work....because it won't install in the first place. Says I don't have enough (15) megabytes on my C:/ drive (yet I have 90 gigabytes).

Thrik
01-25-2004, 01:46 PM
Yes, that's exactly what I mean. You right-click any .exe file and there's a section for setting compatability options.

If you can't do that, well.. you're a bit screwed aren't you? :p
