Re: Forgot!

Yeah, that first game if you walk the wrong way at the wrong time... I so remember that feeling. And then coming back after having beaten it and forgetting that my new play through was a low-level again and I wasn't ready to walk into that area despite knowing how to get into it... :)

Re: Book 1 expansion?

I am a bit tempted! I think the current version of BlitzMax is called "BlitzMax-NG" (Next Generation, I assume?). So I am going to go on vacation next week. When I get back, I will devote a full day to seeing if I could get Eschalon compiled again. I'll probably start with Book III, since that code...

Re: Eschalon Nostalgia

Happy holidays, Leezar, and BW, and everyone else!

For all of its difficulty, 2020 has had good elements alongside the bad, like most years. Just a bit more extreme on the ends.

May 2021 bring us all a bit more security and stability.

Re: Any modders still out there at it?

I have created several mods for myself that rearrange the Eschalon map. I tried to upload them but they are too large to upload. In general you need to upload the files to a service or have your own server and put a link here. We can't really expect BW to pay for a file server behind this BB for ou...

Re: Playing the most fun rogue so far

Sounds like a fun run! I do love the mods I tried. Apple made it difficult for me to play anymore, though.

Re: Exiled Kingdoms

Looks kind of cool, Ttomm46. Description says "action RPG." Does this mean it is continuous and not turn based? Some of us old farts need to get up from the chair too much and prefer turn based for that reason. :) Currently $5 on GOG is certainly tempting, though. Heck, even the normal $8 price isn'...

Re: Happy Fourth!

I got an image of me running into a bookshelf with a vr headset on, and it made me laugh loudly. Trust me, everyone laughs out loud when I tell them why I have a scar on the top of my foot. Half-Life Alyx is really, really well done- so much so that I literally forgot I was in VR and tried to run a...

Happy Fourth of July for those of us in the States!

Seems like a good day to cast supernova in a cave full of explosive barrels. ;-)

Re: Appreciating this game

I have the sequels through GOG so am looking forward to Book II, but think I will take a break first. On the good side, your break between games now doesn't have to be as long as it was for those of us waiting for the next game to come out. :) Of course, as I recall, I replayed each game regularly ...

Re: Busy Busy Busy

My wife works lab services technical support on the programming side. She's been VERY busy, too. I'm in an essential business, helping to make sure all you people get the stuff you order since you can't go get it yourselves much anymore. Not a shock that we're also very busy.

Re: If you achieve Destroyer, post here [spoilers]

Just (re) finished Book 1, load of fun to get back into that! Got Destroyer this time around... I was wonder : "What if... I hit that one guy?". Threw incinerator fuel in the mix, then went on a corner (to dodge only two at a time)... Halfway to level 18. Would've been nice to get a third ending, o...
