  1. This was a great and well put together video. A lot of love and effort here. I don't agree with every point exactly, but it's nice to see such a strong expression from my corner of the "adventure debate" for once. I highly recommend watching all 3 parts! Even if you're not a fan of King's Quest or fantasy (looking at you, Troels :P), there's a lot of points here about Sierra adventure design in general, much of which you and Frede talked about at length in the BSD podcasts. Give it a view!

  2. Once she enters the cave you exit the upper cave and then you should push the rock right away. The idea is that you're dead if she makes it out of that cave and miss your chance. I guess it's not actually a death if she never comes up....which is disappointing as I always rush to get it done to ensure the rock hits her because if she's in the cave she's got no where to go. It's the illusion of danger that causes panic. This seems obvious to me. I guess you didn't experience this. Lol

     

    EDIT: The proper sequence should have her shooting at you from the foreground while you head up the cave, then she flies down and follows you. Did you destroy her cloaking device yet? Maybe that's it...

  3. See, I don't agree with any of that. I like the anonymity of forums most of all. I don't like the idea of linking my social media which I consider private to all these forums. It's bad enough that I'm on Sierra FB groups at all. I keep second guessing myself about leaving them. I used to only use FB for friends and family. I don't like people having that much access to me. I know you can change how much of your stuff is private and public, but it's just so much hassle when a forum easily circumvents these things by default.

     

    I'll never link a social media account with a forum.

  4. I've been going through the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games again for the first time in years. On hard difficulty...mostly. Without cheating. HARD. Currently on Mysteries of the Sith. I forgot how annoying handling the lightsaber in Jedi Knight/MotS is. Much more fluid in Outcast and Academy. I may move on to Outlaws after that. Never did play through it.

     

    The Jedi Knight Enhanced mod is pretty nice, though. It puts higher res textures and higher poly models into the game (mostly ripped from Jedi Outcast assets, it seems). It messes up in Mysteries of the Sith, though. And then of course there's the unfinished 6-level demo of the Dark Forces MOD for Jedi Academy which is beautiful. I don't think I ever played through the 6 level demo actually, only the 3 level demo. I'm excited to get to that again. I also found a neat mod that adds many more character creation options for Jedi Academy. Only for human males, however. Some of them too much like Anakin Skywalker (whom I hate), but still neat for some extra options.
