  1. Which MS-DOS Collection?

    Down to the point! So for collection or specific titles you can use Total DOS. For lets say plug an play eXoDOS. I like the fact that exo did the split sets. As an adventure game fan, the adventure set if more than enough. ScummVM 1.9 also has lots of staff/langs etc. but I personally dont need other lang titles or the same game in multiple langs (which is good for archive purposes) But with Total DOS 14 things might change as all exoDOS might be included in there. TDC release 13 (PD).xml

    Hi James. I think adfly links are part of AP links. They advised sometime that they had to reach a certain limit to get rid the adfly.
  5. Thank you for posting your solution. Please now find way to do this with latest version. Updated :-)
  6. Thank you for your kind work Syntax_X

    Love the letters but background looks too busy with all these in the background. Maybe you could do animated handhelds that appear/disappear around the letters so to avoid the clutter and be more cinematic

    Shivers was compared to Myst etc style adventure graphic puzzle games. "Beneath a Steel Sky" " Broken Sword" "Operation Stealth, also known as James Bond 007: The Stealth Affair in the United States" etc are some of the best newer point and click adventure games. These were real fun games to play and very addictive story play. Worth mentioning a portion of the Wikipedia " Freeware release and Remastered edition / Legacy / Sequel" Great companies that I personally miss (for newer players or older with great memories): Sierra / Sierra Interactive which now with The Odd Gentlemen created based on Unreal 3 Engine the new King Quest series (King Quest, Hero Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, EcoQuest, Leisure Suit Larry, Gabriel Knight etc) LucasArts (Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, The Secret of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Loom, Sam & Max Hit the Road, Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle etc) Delphine Software International (Another World, Cruise for a Corpse, Darkstone: Evil Reigns etc) Revolution Software / Revolution Games (Lure of the Temptress, Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword etc) Cryo Interactive (Atlantis: The Lost Tales, Dracula 2: The Last Sanctuary, Dune etc ) Also an interesting article from PCGamer with best titles made by new or older companies. I have to say I was impressed to see FunCom (developer of the Longest Journey and its specialization on MMORPG Age Of Conan etc) My apologies for taking the space but I thought it would benefit many younger players...

    Correct it is not only DOS related. Amiga was my thing. About Shivers i remember i had to drop this one as I could not figure out that music organ puzzle... If you turn the text mode one it helps but back in the days did not think about it. Have you played Shivers II: Harvest of Souls? I think that was the era where Sierra kind of going down. I more a fan of the first style point-and-click (Maniac Mansion, King Quest, Hero' Quest, Space Quest, all the Lucasart games). Later style I d go for the ATLANTIS (4CDs), Siberia, etc. Good times!!! time 2Play :-)

    Dear James, firstly thank you for taking the time to reply :-) Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion Virtual Machine (ScummVM) is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games... This is the main focus of ScummVM. This is why I think a separate theme would do a great difference for all us adventure players/collectors. In addition, there is now a complete set v1.9 (about 80-90GB) of all these adventure games (English and third languages). The list keeps growing in every version. I think you should give it a second thought ;-)

    Still looking forward to a nice ScummVM or updated DOS theme similar cine style ;-) Nice work James!
