Re: Scott Adams graphical adventures. S.A.G.A

SAGA stands for Scott Adams Graphic Adventure. You can see this in all the advertising and the Adventure International catalogues. It was even spelled out on the SAGA logo, which featured the words on an artist's palette. I know that there were SAGA versions of adventures 1 to 6, 13 and the Questpro...

Re: New user registration is not acknowledged

I got a little more info. He says that when he tries to log on, he gets a message saying "This account has not been activated", so it sounds like it needs an administrator to activate it. Remember that email notifications are not working, so he would not have received any email notifications. I trie...

New user registration is not acknowledged

I have someone complaining that: I registered one months ago but it doesn't send the activation email and the admins don't reply when you contact them. Is this normal? I know that the database is broken, game updates are on hold and email notifications don't work. Is this related? What do I tell the...

Chris Lampton vs Christopher Lampton

There is one game in the database written by Chris Lampton (Starflight: A Cosmic Adventure) and one written by Christopher Lampton (The Quest), but I'm pretty sure this is the same author. See his blog at Adrift in the Infosphere. Can someone look into this?

Re: Another Classic Ported to TRS-80 MC-10

Thanks for tracking down this version of 'Castle Adventure'. I had it in my database, but didn't have the magazine or the BASIC file. I've now downloaded the scan of the magazine from the Internet Archive, typed it in (with some help from your listings on your GitHub page) and played it through to m...

Nope. Deleted all my attachments in PMs and that made no difference.

Re: Board quota for attachments has been reached

I just struck the same issue. I'll see if managing my own attachments makes any difference. However, in a personal message, it said the file extensions weren't accepted. I tried png, txt and zip.

Re: Another Classic Ported to TRS-80 MC-10

GO HOUSE should take you into the dwarf house, then OPEN DOOR (with the red key) and GO DOOR to enter the red garden. As CASA is still in limbo and no one seems interested in fixing the current database problems, I'll attach my map and solution here. Oh, crap. The board attachment quota has been rea...

Re: Another Classic Ported to TRS-80 MC-10

Contrary to what Jason said, there was nothing wrong with the original listing, except that a few lines exceeded the TRS-80's 240-character limit, so they were impossible to type in. These lines had to be split over two lines. Line 10 had to be split into lines 9 and 10 and the GOTO10 elsewhere in t...

What happened to nostalgia8.nl for Dutch adventures?

Someone just pointed out to me that http://www.nostalgia8.nl/ and http://www.nostalgia8.org/ are offline. Does anyone know what's going on? I had a feeling that one of the regulars here was the owner of those domains.

This is (or was) a valuable resource for Dutch games.

Re: Authoring System Not Currently Showing

Has anyone followed up on this? Does anyone care? I have a large backlog of stuff to submit, but I don't want to submit anything while I've got a lot of stuff in the queue. If it's not fixed by the New Year, I think I'll look elsewhere for a site to support. Somewhere like Moby Games. They have a hu...
