  1. I HAVE A SUGGESTION Dwight Schultz - he has his credentials from being part of the original A-team, he was Reg Barclay in Star Trek TNG, so he has his space credentials and he can talk future-sciency - plus he was in Fallout 4, among other games. He's doing an announcer style voice in the new Master of Orion game reboot, video below... I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times, he's a lovely bloke. But his voice has a commanding presence that is capable of authority, mockery and sarcasm as well - I think he would do an amazing homage to Gary Owen without trying to emulate him, I think that's what this needs. Here is the voice anouncement trailer for Master of Orion, you can hear him do an announcer style voice. https://youtu.be/KhzlgohX2SM
  2. Hey hey, So far enjoying it (At work, don't tell anyone). Two things have cropped up so far. a) The slider bar on the right of the instructions text box seems to have a "grab" area twice its size, so that I'm dragging the slider even though I clicked underneath the slider bar box. b) minor sound glitches - the game is playing back part of the plot expose at the start of the game, then as the games tries to load the next area the audio glitches out / repeats in a loop until the ship interior is loaded. These are both in windowed mode, and not game breakers or anything, just what I've found so far. ~D
  3. Loving the demo so far. My bugs *) Rooter sometimes doesn't open when you whistle, or at least he's flagged as open but no animation. *) If I change to playing as Rooter in the closet, then walk out of the closet, he simply turns around and walks back in. *) Some of the walking hotspots don't match the direction Ace walks. *) Game crashes when I die at the steam vent. *) Not all the hotspots are showing up as such *) Message Not Found: $Ace_eye_Lab_Door FEATURE REQUEST *) Mousewheel changing of the action icons would be AWESOME Otherwise thus far, I'm loving it.
  4. I think I just nutted out the chords, melody and structure, more or less. :P I wish I could play properly. Maybe I'll lay it out in guitar pro for a giggle. Oh hey it's raining. Must be bed time.
  5. Holy crap, 291 views? Thanks for the compliments all :)
  6. I....am going to bed. I hashed this out in the shower, and at work, probably subject to change, but here it is for now. All comments welcome. The ballad of 218K - Dedicated to those who never gave up, and everyone else besides. (Think "The Times they are a Changin" by Bob Dylan, mixed with "Scarborough Fair" - the Simon and Garfunkel version) With a dash of the Space Quest 1 theme thrown in for relief. :) 218K is pronounced two-one-eight-K) COME! Gather around and I’ll tell you a tale Of brave Women and Men who all Pledged to prevail Over fantastic odds, and the trolls in their way, As they reached the great slowdown of 218K Space Pope was assembling an army to fear Yes the Two Guys would come, but they were not yet near. The Andromedan cavalry, riding our way In the deafening silence of 218K But the trolls did besiege our poor garrisoned mound Well, the total went up, and the total went down Oh they toyed with emotions and got in our way, In that terrible struggle of 218K Yes, we fought and we bickered, we knew it was bleak Seemed we wouldn’t reach 500K in two weeks. There would be no Space Venture, and nothing to play If we just couldn’t win against 218K But, in that darkest hour, hearts heavy with dread, Our adventure games future, it hung by a thread.. Out of sheer desperation, with no more to say We clawed out of the trenches of 218K Now if we stood a chance, heck, we just couldn’t tell With the cone on our side, though it wasn’t, as well? Oh the Trends, and the Triangle fought us that day As we clashed, worn and weary, with 218K All adventurers rallied to put out the word On the forums, and tweeted (though not like a bird) And then, ever so slowly we pulled from the fray And we gained some momentum through 218K So! With 42 bullets and 5 guns apiece, The Xenon Special Forces, they led our release With the power of Polycheese, and Douglas A, Slowly scaled the great mountain of 218K *tempo slows* As we drew near the crest, there was hope in the air For we knew it would all be downhill beyond there - With one final full-Nelson, pushed over the line... …..And we gazed on green pastures of sweet 219 Friends! This story impassioned, is one of renown - Tell your children to pass-down our tale to their own, Of the Quests that we went through to be here today, And to look back in wonder at 218K. Yes we look back in triumph at 218K. So. Who’s good with an acoustic guitar? :P
  7. S.D. - the colon is missing from the link to the Aging Still Image. Edit: Actually, also from the last one by Jared87
  8. Ah, love that this is being gathered together in one place. I'm working on lyrics to the Ballad of 218K. :P
  9. Fricking' amazing :) now bed time. Good night everyone.
  10. Done what? What on earth are you talking about? What's going on here? Who are you people?
  11. Paul has the benefit of the doubt from me. He re-tweeted my fan comic ( and I can't draw), so until it's proven otherwise he's ok in my books. :)
