  1. I understand that there's nothing wrong with the game. The reason I advised changing the display driver in the game is because OBS can behave better with capturing a graphics accelerated (or not) display from a game depending on what driver it's using. This has worked for me with other programs. For instance DOSBox changing from "surface" and "overlay" to "opengl" can fix this. Same with other games sometimes when they don't behave on OpenGL, Direct3D, or Vulkan. Sometimes it makes a difference because OBS can be stupid.

    Anyway, glad you got it working. Clearly your issue was not the same as what I described above.

  2. Waiting patiently. 🙂 I've been streaming development of my KQ2SCI remake project. Also writing music for other games, and collaborating on a King's Quest remix album. Just going about our lives until this thing happens. 😄

    Well it looks like it is over. We have been scammed and it is finally time to accept it. This game will never come out and all hope is lost i feel sorry for everyone who lost their money in this scam. I am not even angry i am just hugely disappointed.

    We are literally testing the beta right now. We as in the backers. My money ain't wasted.

  4. Had an idea after posting in the other thread of discussing what you think (or would like) the SV box cover would look like. They've said that it'll be similar in style to Space Quest IV's big box so I'm guessing something like those dimensions. I recently received my Broken Age big box for my Kickstarter reward and it was made to resemble the DOTT box and the LA boxes of old with the border, logo in the bottom center, etc. I wonder will the SV box resemble an old Seirra box? What would you want from it? Something resembling the SQ1 black box? Or maybe one of the "Roger Wilco in..." later SQ boxes? Or a brand new design?

  5. They haven't said otherwise. I'm still expecting one. It'll look great next to my SQ1 (spaceship cover), SQ4, and SQ Collection(Vivendi) boxes. I almost bought a replacement Space Quest Collector Series fold top box a while ago but I abstained....my real SQ unicorn is the classic black box, though. It would be awesome if they designed the SpaceVenture box kind of like a Space Quest box. All black with a red and blue logo (maybe a different letterstyle, though). Or even maybe the "Rgoer Wilco in..." style boxes. could say "Ace Hardway in...." instead.

  6. So I did some searching for the amazing font used on the first three Space Quest box covers and I found it! FIrst of all I must mention a fantastic variation that Goatmeal created which matches the in-game titles for SQ1 and SQ2 (but which are slightly different from the box, namely the A having a flat upper side instead of a rounded point).

    He also did a font for the credits text:

    After some searching he found a close approximation of the text style but as a thinner font:

    Turns out the font is part of a larger font family pack called Digital Sans by Elsner+Flake. Unfortunately, they're not free and the whole pack is $350. Nobody happens to own this font family pack do they? lol

    They're not exactly the same, but "Digital Sans Now ML ExtraBold," "Digital Sans Now ML Black," "Digital Sans Now ML Cond ExtraBold," and "Digital Sans Now ML Cond Black" seem to be the closest variations in the pack! The differences between ML and ML Cond seem to be that ML Cond has a little more height. Besides the 'P' not being quite the same, the 'Q' has differences as well. But it's quite close! Here's an example:

  7. 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.

    There was a time when I thought Dwight would make a good onscreen Roger.

  8. Regarding characters that Roger "already knew" that weren't mentioned before, I don't think he knew them before. I was under the impression that between the introduction cutscene where he was demoted and the point where you start the game and get sent to shore leave on Polysorbate LX, there would have been an indeterminate amount of time (perhaps a couple of months) that allowed Roger to meet and befriend members of his new crew. I don't think we're meant to assume that Roger knew these people before SQ6.
