Re: MBBS v10 Open Beta Thread

Found that In WIN10 console, to register an ALT you need to press CTRL+ALT So CTRL+ALT+W for the Worldlink Scheduler. What's strange is that the tab shortcuts with CTRL+ALT works for all except (A)ccount, (E)mulate, (U)sers. TAB key works fine, so I can reach those tabs this way instead. There must ...

Re: Sorcerer's Isles!

Anyone playing this game and wants to collaborate/share hints ?

I would post questions here, but some clues might be in the questions (spoilers) so privately might be best.

Cheers,

Re: MBBS v10 Open Beta Thread

Works well on my side. Messed up with btrieve errors when moving WGSERV folder from my XP to WIN10 vm, but realized I need to run that btrieve registry hack first. Upgrade works normally. The console view was messed up, but I adjusted CMD window to 80 x 25 (heigh x width) Modules looks OK so far (el...

Re: Article about Tim Stryker's Aztarac arcade game

IMHO he's one of the early adopter of the concept of "networking" but with micro-computers.. And for sure, back then optimization was key to transition anything theoritical to practical. In his 1980 interview in BYTE magazine, he explains how he conceptualized a multiplayer game (flash att...

Re: Quest for Zen

Another lost work restored, thank you for securing these bytes! Demo works fine so far on my VM. Strange world, no objects on the ground. A mud with no mobs, there must be something :D About "Zen Again": Do we know if parts of source/binaries still exists, like Worlds of Darkness? Or was i...

Re: FIRST TIME IN 32 YEARS: Quest for Sorcery!

Forbidden lands 1 is not really puzzling, just heavy grinding, keep going down in the dungeon as you grow stronger, until the bottom! In Alchemists, there are some places where without the MSG + data there's no way to solve the riddles. Like you need to type some sentence exactly at that time in tha...

Re: FIRST TIME IN 32 YEARS: Quest for Sorcery!

After some time, it seems there's no way to progress, but maybe I haven't figured it out yet and that's the point. I just want to be sure there's no actual bug preventing normal progress. If not I will just keep on looking and poking ;-) Strange things: - Anyone ever got out of the initial map ? (I ...
