Yes, it's still breach of copyright according to several court cases. Including the fact the download of the translation can come under being a derivative work.

IPS is the International Patching System format. Some of the companies like Westwood actually used to use it for updates, basically it checks the files version, and if they match the checksum it has for the previous version applies a diff update to the files. It's still semi common for console rom p...

Read most of them before upto around... Nightwatch from memory might have been The Last Hero though.

The Discworld cartoon from what little I saw wasn't a bad adaptation overall, though about all I really saw was an episode or two of the Wyrd Sisters.

Well sorry, but can't help the facts. And there is copy protection on the disc according to Mastertronic themselves.

Even when sold out were their own entity they were walking down the path to the dark side though sadly.

Longer. 3.5 USBs have been around for years because they're so convenient for laptops that don't have one internally mounted.

It's halfway tempting to have a look into making the drives though because while there's a limited market there's nothing really stopping someone from making them to order. If I had the money, experience, time, and resources, it's deffinately something I would look into. If only one company made su...

I have to agree with Fin, MIDI isn't a very CPU or RAM intensive application, the only time RAM makes a difference is when you're using higher quality samples for the instruments, such as some of the soundfonts I use for composition which use up a fair amount of cache by default settings. And even t...

MI2 does not have CD Audio tracks. The audio for it is all MIDI which means the quality of the sound is related to the MIDI options of your soundcard, if you have say a Creative Sound Blaster Live! soundcard you have the option of soundfonts, which are a replacement set of samples for the GM instrum...

There are sometimes tricks you can pull to bypass the bios detection for drives depending on your OS. I've found for example under Windows 2000 at least on a machine where the bios doesn't register anything above 32 gigs I can set the bios to none for that drive's position and 2000 will still detect...

That's what I figured. :-(

Space Quest was a truly sad series of games in a lot of ways, but I always found them enjoyable for both the puzzles (multiple solutions are always nice) and the story such as it was.

Heh ok, just when I'd already dug it out along with my Space Quest collection and Inca.

Sorry I thought you meant any version except Mac the way you said it.

On a side note was Space Quest VII ever released as there's a demo of it on my SQ collection CD but I've never seen it for sale.

This has me curious as I'm pretty sure I had music in my copy of Gobliiins (DOS CD), so I'm going to go through the CD stack tomorrow and see if I can't hunt it down to check.

Reformat? You don't need to reformat a 5.25 drive, you can reformat the disks but the drive itself is no different to a CD-ROM really except access is more like a hard drive. And it goes onto the floppy bus, if you find a cable that's old enough it'll usually have two types of plugs, one for the 3.5...
