Post by thatgui » Thu Dec 13, 2007 6:55 am

*** [Enter] Key: graffiti area -> text area -> draw a line from the upper right corner to the lower left corner
Questions at the beginning (after the age question) -> graffiti area -> text area -> draw a line from the lower right corner to the upper left corner twice to "activate" a virtual [ALT] Key, then draw an [X] in your text area
**** Crashes during intro (also crashes if i try to skip intro)

Hmm? Just "draw" them in a texteditor with a fixed-width font and then paste them here (in a

Thanks for the tip, any hints which editor (Win32) to use ?? I tried Notepad++ (my main working tool) but the result isn't really better.

I also updated the list a little bit.

vim! :P

Anyway, if you don't like vi-clones, normal Notepad should do, for example. Any other editor as well, as long as you use a fixed-width font (like the "Courier New" series).

last time I checked (ie now) the edit boxes on this forum also operate with a fixed-width font (at least for me ^^)

Updated the table a little (now I have to lay my hands on some Elvira copies - unfortunately i have to wait till someone sells his collection on eBay again :( )
It also appeared to me that you have to put the "extra" files (lure.dat,kyra.dat) in the game folder - simply putting them in the Extras folder (like it is done in the svn build archive from chriliths page) does not work (at least for me).
Sorry again for the table layout. I tried what DrMcCoy suggested (notepad+"Courier New") but must be doing something wrong.

I bought mine from Adventure Soft Publishing not that long ago. I don't know how much remains of their stock, though.

Thanks for the hint, but 14 pounds seems quiet expensive for Elvira I+II + WaxWorks. I think I will wait for a good "shot" on eBay (not long ago I got Goblins 1-3 for 3€ + 4€ shipment)
