Re: Wanted: Synonyms for the verb Throw

In Savage Island part I, if you want to throw the coconut, the word "throw" doesn't work. You have to say "use" coconut. I found it very frustrating. Normally I'm a huge fan of Scott Adams' work (aside from that pesky desert nomad...).

Mystery Fun House

In Scott Adams' Mystery Fun House game, has anyone tried kissing the mermaid? Or kissing the lady at the admissions desk?

Re: Recommend me some IF!

Try Scott Adams' adventuere, particularly Pirate Adventure and Adventureland (good "easy" adventures for beginners) and Pyramid of Doom and Savage Island, parts i and II.

Also try Jacaronda Jim.

I hope that works as an acceptable excuse for having missed that one.
I played it on the TI994A. And yes, Lumin I will excuse you for not knowing about it. :yeah:

Savage Island

Are there any text adventures that compare with the genius that is Savage Island Parts 1 and 2?

Don't forget to keep the bandana!

Re: Trouble opening 5.0

Which exact release do you have? ADRIFT no longer uses .Net Framework 2.0, so you might be on a very old release, or it might be an issue with the installer. It's been a while since I tried and I don't remember which version I tried to download. Can you provide me with a link to the version I shoul...

Thank you. Unfortunately, I tried all three files at that link and ADRIFT still won't work.

It's working on my older laptop; good thing I kept it!
I'd still like to see it working on this computer, though.

Re: Trouble opening 5.0

It's happening again. The app isn't working. I tried downloading it again and installing it again and it keeps giving me error messages. Restarting the computer didn't help.

Re: Galen's Quest

I haven't been anywhere near this project for a while because I've been busy with other things. I want to thank everyone who has taken a look at this adventure and given helpful feedback. I'll post here again when I have done more work on it. I'm not sure when that will be.

Re: Galen's Quest

Thanks everyone who looked at my adventure! I'm going to start making changes tonight. I'll post the newer version here when I'm done, and send it by email to anyone who prefers that method. This is not the place to post your game. :wink: If you are looking for testers, post a notice under Games Di...
