Callahan's Crosstime Saloon is one of Legend's games; their engine is known to be very difficult to re-implement.

This game got the artfully thorough treatment over at HG101 a little while ago, FYI.

Ah, I didn't realize Last Crusade came in EGA and VGA versions.

In that case, shouldn't Indy3 (VGA) be on that list? Or is there no such thing as a version of Indy3 (VGA) that ever had that copy protection?

Indy3 copy protection problems

I was just poking at my odd French copy of Indy3 prior to putting it on eBay. That's the one I mentioned here - if you want it, speak up now. As reported in that old post, I had no problems getting this game to work in ScummVM 0.8.0. However, trying it with 0.12.0 just now, I end up being shown the ...

So once it's known if the game is freeware or not, also makes a big difference, because when it's freeware, then it could also be put up on the site just as the freeware versions of FOTAQ etc.. There is no doubt about this: the game was definitely released as freeware. (Of course, that doesn't mean...

I picked up the Archives Vol. 1 many, many years ago. Sam & Max, DOTT, and Fate of Atlantis, if memory serves. (I've still only got around to playing DOTT. How naughty of me.) The one in that auction is, of course, the LucasArts Classic Adventures collection, which is entirely different. I used to h...

I might add that this game was released as freeware by Metropolis many years ago, if you didn't know already.

A smashing game, though. Apparently there was a talkie version, but it was only available in Polish.

Whoever translated the script did a bang-up job.

Heh. I hear Mr. Ellison is a dangerous fellow when he's upset. ;)

I'd rather like to play the game and see its slightly more optimistic approach.

I understand many editions of the short story have some sort of braille/punch tape pictorial motif running through them?

I can't say I'm not waiting for the oft-promised PC version of Mercenaries 2 (as I am, and so should you), it's just that the last in-house-developed game published by LucasArts was -- when exactly? They live off those royalties and exclusive publishing rights, I'm afraid. RTX Red Rock, no? (I rath...

You do not know how long I've wondered if you could download games legally, pay for and download instead of waiting all that time for the disks to arrive. Well, that's what Steam, Gametap, TryGames, RealArcade, TotalGaming.net, MatrixGames.com, and so on and so forth are all about. The list goes on...
