Re: Bring in all your deliveries!

I was kind of hoping this news would be followed by HDB becoming legally available once again in one form or another. Any idea about whether we should expect that to happen? (It was my understanding that it was in Tom Hall's hands.)

Re: Schizm: Mysterious Journey? AMBER: Journeys Beyond?

AMBER, at least, has been patched to get running on modern machines.

Re: Another summer (with Google), four new projects!

A curious choice, Hyperspace Delivery Boy. Did something in particular inspire that? It would be great if it happens to be on its way to being legally available again one way or another.

Wow, it's the thread I started twelve years ago! (Oh, to be young again.) I saw the news on the front page about Star Trek and immediately came looking to see if there was renewed interest in this other seemingly hopeless cause. I wish I had something useful to add. Rumor has it that GoG actually ha...

You may be interested in the "Masterpiece Edition" of MYST available from GOG.com for a couple of dollars; it should run perfectly in Windows 8 (and probably look better, too).

This is not to be confused with realMYST, which plays rather differently.

The solution Mr. Johnson provides to get his old games running under Windows is Executor, a relatively inaccurate Macintosh emulator that has the advantages of not requiring a copyrighted Apple BIOS ROM or indeed any other software from Apple. I've often mused that the best way to port his games pro...

I just found out about this. Cool beans! Behold, two minutes to getting the demo running under Windows: Get unar1.3_win.zip from http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/ and extract it to a convenient directory. Get the Demo for PPC Macintosh from http://thejourneymanproject.com/presto/journeymanprim...

The main binary contains some snd resources that contain the instrument samples. Well, in that case it might indeed not particularly difficult. Someone over here managed to successfully extract the samples from SimCity 2000 for the Macintosh and make a soundfont: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtop...

Is the freeware release of Discworld no longer feasible?

Is it pretty much out of the question that Discworld I or II will be legally released as freeware?

There was quite a bit of chatter about this back in the day, but a quick search does not reveal any relevant, recent thread, so I thought I would ask anew.

I've just coaxed it into running on Windows XP SP3 after an IDAFree debugging session and using OllyDBG to hack a jle to jmp. I'd be really, really interested in the details of how you did all this.

Just out of curiosity, whatever happened to this?

I reckon there might be some people out there crazy enough to do an English voice track if the necessary format information was available.

It's on Direct2Drive, too.

Now to wait for it to go on sale. It is only a matter of time.
