Re: a guide to setup eschalon book 1 on ubuntu 16.04 64bit

Remember to write 'padsp_32 /Path/to/game/' rather than 'padsp /Path/to/game' or it will run without sound.

Re: Ultima Worlds of Adventure 1 & 2 free at GOG

I once looked at these at the store and never purchased, because I only had cga graphics at the time. Always been meaning to pick them up, because I really loved the u6 engine. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Back to Beta

I've never developed games but in the programming I have done, no amount of hair pulling while trying to write the pro...

I normally just have a portal saved next to the priest in Blackwater. Even if you didn't have the strength to...
