  1. And I wonder why I used Flickr again, now that I discovered imgur. :/
  2. I hope this work, I haven't used Flickr in ages... here is the more recent, and probably last Space Quest Lego project I'll do for a while. Sack's and the Software Store from Galaxy Galleria, remade entirely in Lego! https://flic.kr/s/aHskJgvxzX My original plan was to make the whole Galaxy Galleria in Lego, but I ran out of grey, then with a lot of real life stuff happening I never got to post these here. Here they are, at last! :D
  3. I think I am starting to understand... maybe. I have a russian friend, and it helps me understand this a little more. Some terms I still don't understand (Lazy Quest, what the heck is that game?), but the main thing seems to be that you're saying that Wilco creates his own enemies in his mind, and destroys them to feel like a hero, when he is in reality a simple janitor imagining all of it.
  4. So what happened with me? you might ask. Where's the project I promised? Did I forget about Space Quest? Neither of those. I would say I'm officially "back". Maybe. Kinda. I finished as much of the secret project as I could, and I realized the project is impossible to complete due to the limited size of my Lego collection, and real life being now a big obstacle to continue making these, so I will post the pictures of the last project of this series soon, but that will probably be the last I will do of this project.
  5. Amazingness in video. Period. This is one of the best SQ fan work I've seen in a long time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq024O5HNk8
  6. Hey guys! Been a while. Recently I'm working on a Minecraft map of the new game "Please don't Touch Anything" that recently came out on Steam. The map is just about done, and I mean it's an inch away. The end is still to complete, but there is one thing I find the map lacks. Since the whole game of Please don't Touch Anything is made around references, I thought it would be cool to sneak a Space Quest reference in the map as a "bonus ending". For those who don't know the game, Please don't Touch Anything is a retro, 8-bit game where you are in a room, you have a panel, and through a window you see a city. Depending on what you do with the panel, you can destroy the city and "end" the game 30-ish different ways. Every "ending" is a reference to a popular movie or novel, and when you flick the "restart" lever, the city is back and the world goes back to normal. The problem I'm having : I want to make a custom ending to my Minecraft version of the game that would relate to Space Quest, but I don't have any idea what the ending could be, and how it would relate to Space Quest. I have some limits, by what's and what's not possible in a game like Minecraft, but apart from that, I'm pretty free to try anything. I really wanted to reference Space Quest, since it's one of my favorite games of the past, in the map I'm making, but I lack of ideas on how. If you guys have any suggestions or ideas, please tell me! I would be glad to know. Btw, this is the game on Steam : http://store.steampowered.com/app/354240 - MaitreDesBlocs
  7. That sounds cool! Please notify me if you make something. :) I always like to see Space Quest and Minecraft related things.
  8. I actually started doing YouTube myself, and mainly working on a long-term Minecraft Let's Play, I also played AGD King's Quest 1 and 2. Tried the new King's Quest game, but stopped, because I wasn't satisfied with my marrating on that series. Planning to soon do the Entire Space Quest series, going in this order : Space Quest I VGA, Infamous Adventures' Space Quest II VGA, Space Quest III, IV, V, VI, Space Quest Vohaul Strikes Back, then Incinerations.
  9. As this project is still on hold, but not out of my mind, I thought I would distract you guys with a little something I made that relates to Space Quest, in Minecraft. I saw simplysarc's video on pop-up graphics in Minecraft (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NTu1uGLROs), and I was disappointed by the lack of tutorial on how to make that yourself, so I decided to make one. To demonstrate the trick, I displayed Ortega's falling into lava death message in Minecraft, with working Restore/Restart/Quit. Here is the video : (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuSKqNreqV8) Anyways, I thought that was interesting to post here, so I did. Enjoy. BlockMaster
  10. That. Was. Awesome. Period. Great work! That is what keeps a community like this alive! :D Keep up with the good work! - BlockMaster
  11. Doesn't this sound way too familiar? : https://soundcloud.com/blinch_music/runes Not the exact same theme, but it must be inspired or else it's incredible how much there is a ressemblance with the tune. Just something that passed through my mind. Tell me what you think. - MaitreDesBlocs
  12. I did cut the bush where the "creature" is, but that's all I did with the tool so far.
  13. I would gladly Skype someone about Space Quest. I rarely have someone to talk to about the game, so it would be interesting. If someone wants my Skype address, PM me. ;) EDIT : I know I just revived an old thread, but back then I didn't have the time to respond, and then I forgot about it.
  14. I started a Let's Play on the new game. Kinda stuck at what to do after buying the bush cutter. I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to buy that, but I can't restore. Could someone give me a hint on what to do next? Not tell me, I just want a hint.
  15. I'm back guys! I had a dream two days ago, about some unused Space Quest 6 material, and I think I figured out a couple things. So I thought about this, and I remembered that the only item that is mentionned in the code, without being accessible in Space Quest 6 Debug is the pen. Where was the pen, you might wonder. NARRATOR : A pen lies on the ground, probably discarded by the malcontent who scribbled on the sign. Which sign could he be talking about? Oh yeah. Scribbling on a sign? Cyberspace office, of course. It probably was something on the ground below the sign... where the screwdriver is. But where there really a pen AND a screwdriver there to be picked up? That doesn't seem like Space Quest, to put many items to be picked up in the same spot. This made me think : what if the pen REPLACED the screwdriver before? That is an interesting possibility. Then I remembered the screwdriver being used in the cyberspace, so it's needed... or is it. What if the pen was used for Roger to pick up a number, flip it, write "his number" on the back of it, then replace it in? That would be a plausible theory, and also would explain why the pen was removed, because the team thought it was ridiculous to write in a computer. There is even an image to support the same theory. As Akril posted on her website, there is a removed close-up showing Roger's hand holding a number card... http://www.akril15.com/sr/sq6/sq6-V5701.gif So, what do you think? Do you think there is a link with the pen and the number cards? Let me know. That's all I got for now. Comments and ideas are always appreciated, and as always, stay tuned! - BlockMaster
  16. Haha! Loved the last one! This made my day a whole lot better. And yes, I'm still around. Just rarely have time, or interest, to post anything these days. Thank you for the sneak peaks, TGFA! BlockMaster
  17. It's funny. I made a post on the Space Quest wiki five months ago about that. If I knew this wasn't well known, I would've post something about that a lot earlier. :P It's cool, anyways, how it's not on most documentation websites for Space Quest III.
  18. ERMAGERD. I need one of each! ;) Usually, I can never find t-shirts that represent me. Now this is... Wow. Good job!
  19. The patch is a script file, which looks exactly like any other .HEP, except the letters are not capitalized. I tried making a PATCHES folder and redirecting to it, with still no success. By the way, I'm doing all this in Windows. Windows 8, to be precise, in my Space Quest Collection folder on my C:\Program Files\Sierra folder, not in DosBox. DosBox is only used by the Space Quest collection to run the game. I don't think running this patch on Space Quest collection is possible. Already tried to install NRS's one before, but all narrator's sounds were cut, so I removed it. I don't know if it is my computer or what, but something isn't right. I don't have any dosbox mountings that I know of. This is on Windows Space Quest Collection. This isn't the dos version, it is the Collection dosbox version, so is there something that I am supposed to do with SIERRA.INI? Also, the website explaining how to install the timer fixes, as linked on spacequest.net archives, is not hosted anymore, so I'm running out of ideas. Maybe there's just no way I can get this to work with my computer configuration. BlockMaster
  20. I already omitted it at first. That's what failed the first time. I even tried configuring Sierra.INI. Didn't help.
  21. Uhh... shortcut for the Space Quest Collection game number selection box, and from there I run it, and that redirects it to dosbox.
  22. I did drop it and that's it, at first, but nothing opens the warp menu. :( THEN I started playing with the RESOURCE.CFG. I don't know what I did wrong. BlockMaster
