  1. Just a brief announcement to say that I finally got around to uploading a plain HTML verison of this story.
  2. Hmm. That's strange. That page opens just fine for me. Can you access this ZIP file? The version of SQ6 that I have came with the second SQ Collection that Sierra released.
  3. I would guess that there definitely are several differences bewteen version 1.0 and version 1.11, since I've never run into either of those bugs in version 1.11. I did some searching and found a couple of savegames for version 1.0 here. Neither of them are set close to the point in the game you described, but I think one of them starts off with Roger in the shuttle, which is about 3/5ths of the way through the game.
  4. Yep, SQ6 has a lot of bugs, and a few of them can render the game impossible to complete. This is why making multiple savegames (or knowing where to download savegames that other people have posted online) is so important. What exactly happened in this scenario? Were you unable to pick up the smaller gallstones that fell down after the large one almost squashed Roger?
  5. I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said, but I figure I might as well say my piece as well: Even though I was never that familiar with the majority of Gary Owens' work, what little I have learned about him over the years really made me feel even more amazed by him. His presence in SQ series transformed great writing into spectacular dialog, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who saw him as one of *the* defining traits of the series, despite only being in 1/3 of the games. I'll always consider myself lucky to have seen him and several other notable actors in a show ca
  6. I think it's only available in Russian. This playthrough of it with an English commentary is fairly informative (I think it was posted here a few years ago), but if this game was covered, we'd probably just end up parroting a lot of whats said in this video.
  7. I would suggest a discussion of Space Quest knockoffs (like Altered Destiny, Rex Nebular and Ivan Lozhkin: Price of Freedom), but I suspect that that ground has been covered already. I'd also toss out the idea of a discussion of humorous sci-fi in general, but that might be too broad a topic, even if it were pared down to older and/or lesser known material.
  8. Okay, I just cleaned out about 30% of my PM inbox. Send away.
  9. Thanks, Chrono. I hope you enjoy the rest of the story.
  10. Well, I've finally got a simple "Behind the Scenes" page for this story uploaded.* It's got explanations for the many obscure in-jokes and references, a lot of deleted scenes, a few sketches, and some other stuff. *I say "finally" because when I first uploaded the page, it turned out...wrong.
  11. Wow. I'm touched. It's still going to be some time before I can sit down and start planning something like that out, though. Right now, I'm trying to get some work done on another project that I've really fallen behind on.
  12. Thank you very much for the comments, Blockmaster! I'm glad you enjoyed this story, and I appreciate the positive feedback. I was inspired to write this a short time after playing the two main SQ fangames of 2012 (a few weeks before the announcement of SpaceVenture), then fell into a pretty deep slump towards the end of that year which slowed my work on this thing to a slow crawl. I was just able to get going on it again towards the later half of 2014, and I was just able to get it to a point where I was satisfied with it towards the end of November. I never intended for this story t
  13. Well, Happy New Year, folks. Here are the last two chapters of The Time Machination. Chapter XXXVIII "So...that's pretty much it," Roger concluded. "Really?" RJ asked, caught off-guard by the abrupt end to the story. "Yes. I don't think he missed anything," Beatrice said. RJ slowly rose from the patch of plasticrete that he had been sitting on. "So...when is this little lizard guy going to get here?" he asked dubiously. "Well...it looks like he was supposed to be here twenty minutes ago," Roger said, glancing at his watch. "You don't think s
  14. Okay, so I'm obviously not going to get the entirity of this story posted by 2014, but since today is New Year's Eve and tomorrow is New Years Day, I'm posting two chapters two days in a row. Chapter XXXVI Two officers of the Northwest Arm of the Galactic Police Department were making their way through one of the upper hallways of the immense fortress that orbited the planet Pygalgia. As they rounded a corner, they encountered a body lying in the floor. It was the body of a humanoid male with a large head. He was wearing a white lab coat, and both his hands and his feet w
