Re: Demoniak (PC, Amiga and Atari ST)

I seems that I got a message that you hadn't entered in your list. I don't think this is a "user-friendly" game. Stuff only happens when you type LOOK. WAIT brings you several turns ahead. When it tells me to <look at picture> it bumps me automatically to a full screen, which I don't much like. I re...

jack and the beanstalk - Your Computer 1984

This game is available at WoS. While it has several typos and appears relatively simple, it isn't so to me. At times it requires more than two words, e.g. "tie rope to cow". The way out of the maze is after you see the old lady go E, N, E, W, S (to get to the castle door). By now I have with me the ...

Re: Murder at the Abbey

I remember downloading this game once, but could not get it to play. More successful this time. I have explored what i can. I have talked to people. The fingerprinting team has come and gone. I have found the object I needed in order to be able to search, and have found four more objects. I don't kn...

This is good news that the forum has not been shut down for eons. Not that anyone has been posting to the forum...

Kudos to those who have been posting, solutions, etc. Patience is a virtue, I particulary, need to learn.

Re: another technical question

There is nothing labelled SWAP. What I see is: Warloard/Doom (07) Drive 0 Option 3 (EXEC) Dir. 0.$ Lib. :0.$ !BOOT Adv1 Adv2 LOAD War-L WarLord So it looks like Adv2 is there, but how to access it? When you first start the game it asks you if you want instructions. Typing <I> gives you some verbs, a...

Re: another technical question

This worked nicely, but to a point. The screen asks me if I am playing from the First half, or from a Saved game. I typed F (for the first half, but then the screen that comes up asks me if I wish to play another game? Typing "Y" brings me to the beginning of the first game again. Now I did not repl...

another technical question

Please tell me if I am posting this in the wrong area. I am trying to play Warlord of Doom - BBC game. I have finished Part 1, though who knows if completely and correctly. It has complex instructions about how to load Part 2. I presume those instructions refer to a real machine not an emulator. I a...

Re: third xanadu game

A little more progress. Found where to plant the bean. Before you continue, you need to get oil. Don't know if you can use the drawbridge, but there is another way into the castle. You can deal with the giant with music. You find a vampire bat, for which you probably need a clove of garlic, but I ha...

Re: third xanadu game

While there are some random elements in the maze around the rill, the mazes inside and below the pagoda do not seem to be. At least most of the time. A way can be found to unlock the grating (from below). That is one way to get out, but I managed to return via the cave. When the dwarf appears, getti...

Re: third xanadu game

Yes, the exits from the maze are random. Random is bad enough, but in a maze?

Yes, I got to the pagoda. I need to go DOWN there?

Me too. Amby and I are happy that you managed to do that. Thank you. I won't ask HOW you did this. Isn't that nice of me? OK I will play it from where I am at now. If that doesn't work, I willl play out your solution. Nice to know we have a person who can help us solve our "unsolvable" games. I have...

third xanadu game

Also a BBC game.

This one is different. You start off needing to choose which objects to buy.

I'm stuck at the very beginning. Bought some things just to map the forest. Which I am having some difficulty doing.

Looks like it. I had checked Xanadu, but not Lost in Xanadu. Thanks.
