  1. Looks good, but is face should be fatter.
  2. I assume that he said that just because he is not comfortable with setting things up in DOSBox. Troels suggested GOG and those use DOSBox as well.
  3. Or if you have the original copies just use the new installers. http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/NewSierraInstallers.html#SQ They will give a better result than ScummVM.
  4. Why are you trying to run a third party interpreter in DOS? It won't gain you anything.
  5. It is common for fan made AGI games to need a more modern interpreter. When amatures create AGI pics they often result in a blown stack when using the original interpeter, which can be avoided by using one of the new interpreters. You can try to add the original interpreter files, but it often does not work. Replicated is on that it will not.
  6. Did you try the patch or the installer? The installer won't work as it will look for the CD. If you use the patch you should be able to point it to the folder where the games are installed.
  7. I have been told that my 2006 VU collection patchs work for the steam releases, but since I do not have them I cannot verify.
  8. Shared on the Sierra Help Pages Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/SierraHelpPages/permalink/1642910069282177/
  9. I was not taliking about linking accounts, but more of a point of making new people aware or even reminding those that have not around for a while that the forums still exist. Anonymity used to matter more to me but since I have had my real name in various credits associated with my user name that is a horse that left the barn long ago. I would assume that the same would apply to you too, at least to some degree. Certainly anyone that wishes to remain anonymous should be able to do so, but often that may be not much more than an illusion.
  10. I never said that social media is useless, just not very good for any kind of in depth conversation. Another function of a real forum is as a reference, a repository of information. This information can be indexed by Google. I am sure that many have found information in old posts of forums from a simple Google search. Any Facebook post will dissappear with time. It would be nice to see social media as sort of portal to proper forums, but I have yet to see much of that. Perhaps that would change if people weren't avoiding forums.
  11. Facebook et al probably have more to do with the demise of the forums than anything else. Too bad as they are not nearly as conducive to holding a real discussion as a proper forum is. Twitter is probably the worst of the lot given its limitation of such a tiny number of characters per post. It reduces interaction to little more than an inane string of quips. Of course so many accessing things with their smart phones only exacerbates it.
  12. Could not agree more. I know that there are probably MI fans around here, but that style was never KQ's schtick. While KQ always had humorous elements, it was never primarily comedy.
  13. Though I can think of others than TOG that I would have prefered, Roberta is retired and nothing will draw her out again so someone else had to do it. The 2 Guys on the other hand are a different matter. To not give them first dibs would be outrageous.
  14. I imagine that if they gave the 2 Guys SQ and the funds that they did for the new SQ there would be more of a demand for a tighter schedule. But more funds could also buy more help to get it done faster. As it is, I am very pleased to see the quality level of SV. It looks fantastic. I am in no rush.
  15. Of course asses can be found at any age, but there is a certain behavior that is much more typical of immaturity and that is how he was coming across to me. I will also grant you that maturity is not directly proportional to actual age. I have no idea about how old he is. As far as I know he is a teenager. The only thing that I was getting at in terms of the games is as an age indicator. Given the the first game was released 30 years ago most of the fans that grew up with the games are at least in their 30s and 40s. I was not trying to imply that growing up with the games had anything to do wi
  16. There are new installers here: http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/NewSierraInstallers.html Again these are Windows installers, but most should work via WINE. One thing to keep in mind is that you may wish to replace the Win build of DOSBox with a Mac build so you do not need to use WINE to play. I am not sure where you can find a Mac build of a Munt enabled DOSBox, though.
  17. That driver is an official Sierra aftermarket driver. It is only designed for "Hoyle Official Book of Games Volume III", "Leisure Suit Larry I" VGA remake, "Leisure Suit Larry V", "Police Quest III" and "Space Quest I" VGA. The driver that works with SQ3 is a fan hacked driver. It is included in my SQ3 DOSBox with Munt installer. http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3925
  18. The digital sound is accessable when you use that driver in the config file. If you want MT-32 sound you will have to use a fan hack driver that apends the SB driver to the end of the MT32 driver (MTBLAST.DRV). Note that these only work in DOSBox. ScummVM ignores the DRV files.
