What am I supposed to do? Spoon feed you what can be found on the Internet when you obviously have an Internet connection and have demonstrated the ability to use it?

I'm still confused... does the bold bit above suggest that this will really be a browser based game? No. You'll have to go through the Kickstarter updates yourself (because I won't do it for you) to verify what I'm saying, but they do say that the game they intend to make won't be browser-based. Th...

The fact there is no details what-so-ever about the game may be making people gun shy. I don't know if that's it. How many details did Tim Schafer give out? None. Went several hundred percent over goal. Al Lowe? Everything. It's a Larry 1 remake. Got just a little bit over goal. So I don't think ho...

This one seems to be in some trouble, though. Nine days to go and not even at 60% of their goal. Tex Murphy is three-quarters there with 13 days to go, and probably will make it at this rate, but the Two Guy? Looks iffy. Maybe it's a case of too many AG Kickstarters too close together. I doubt that ...

Maybe I'm strange (maybe?) but I don't think I've ever timed my gameplay. Not even in largish units of time like days or weeks. But, just on a feelings basis, more-recent adventure games tend to be shorter than those from the '90s, and shorter-again in the '80s. There are exceptions. Full Throttle i...

And it is EA. And one of the first titles to be released is Ultima Underworld. So, I must be Nostradamus or something for having thought of Ultima in conjunction with this.

That we will. But I expect it to be EA as well. Because what we really need are a bunch of old sport sims. But that's not really fair. And I would expect that GOG would package the old Ultimas a lot better than the Ultima Collection CD did.

Microsoft is out now as well. So it does look like it will come down to one company's games being added.

Not only that, but I found that because I had already bought BS2 through GOG that I now just automatically own the remastered version as well. I'm not about to argue with that. 8)

Seeing LucasArts in it could just be wishful thinking. After all, over at LucasForums there was an effort to link all the hints given to LucasArts titles. So, what was the first thing unveiled? Alone in the Dark. And for some reason I can't put my finger on, I have the feeling that LucasArts managem...

Not only cool, but ScummVM might have been used in creating that article. Scalers are clearly being used in the screenshots of ScummVM supported games. Of course, you can do that with DOSBox, but if they were using DOSBox alone I would expect all the screenshots to show the same amount of smoothing.

And then I used File Roller (a Gnome program) to extract it successfully. :roll:

There's a cost...but you can't be bothered to articulate what it is, apparently.

Yes. That one works just fine. Very strange so...whatever. It works now, whatever it is you did. Thanks.

No, I don't think the program used is the issue. Have you tried testing/extracting yourself? I mean, just the updated one because the original I had no problem with. I only get a zero-byte file when I extract and the command-line error I get reads: 7-Zip [64] 9.13 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor P...
