I know many of you prefer text walkthroughs and they are far and few between these days.

There is a Dutch website here called PC Games Walkthroughs that is still writing text walkthroughs. They have kindly reached out to us and I am pleased to share it with you all.

With google translations they translate well enough to find what you are looking for.

I hope it helps.

Happy Gaming!

Dear gameboomers

Thanks for posting my Dutch walkthrough site here on your forum. Let me introduce myself to you, now I'm a member of gameboomers
My name is Louis Koot and I'm a game walkthrough writer from the Netherlands. I'm 63 years old and it's been a while since I have used English, so my apologies if my English is a bit rusty. If my grammar or my spelling is a bit of, please don't mock me but teach me
20 years ago I started to write walkthroughs for computergames, in the Dutch language, and Bert Jamin posted them first on his site www.gamesover.com. I was sad to recieved the news that Bert Jamin has died.

I know that many gamers, just like muself, don't like video walkthroughs and prefer written walkthroughs. On your forum you help gamers who have trouble with games and you often refer them to game walkthroughs that are not on the gameboomers site, also you refer often to video walkthroughs on YouTube. So I thought that it could be of intrest to your community if they know of my site and my walkthroughs.

The walkthroughs are all in the Dutch language, but I don't think that this will be a problem with the current translation software from Google and others. And I'm allways happy to translate little portions of one of my walkthroughs for you in English. But to do a complete walkthrough in English is to much work for me. I have been trying for years to push other Dutch gamers to write game walkthroughs....never had any luck with this, until recently. You wil see the name of Dick Leeuw as co-writer on newley made walkthroughs. I'm very happy to give Dick Leeuw all the credits he deserve for his

So, perhaps you want to check out my walkthroughs on my site at www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl

Newley added walkthroughs on my site this year are:
-A New Beginning The Final Cut
-Agatha Christi And Then There Were None
-Agatha Christi Murder on the Orient Express
-Agatha Christi Evil Under the Sun
-Ar-K 2 Gone with the Sphere
-Ar-K 2 The Girl Who wasn't There
-Ar-K 3 The Great Escape
-Bear With Me..... all three episodes
-Memoranda
-Obduction (co-writer Dick Leeuw)
-Quern Undying Thoughts (co-writer Dick Leeuw)
-Rhem 1 SE
-Rhem 4 SE
-Sam and Max Seison 1 completly
-The Frostune
-The Little Acre
-Xing The Land Byond (co-writer Dick Leeuw)

Currently working on a walkthrough for DarkesVille Castle and we are going to make a walkthrough for Painscreek Killings and Syberia 3

Best Regards: Louis Koot

Yes, thank you. Written walkthroughs are much better to me than videos. (Though I don't know how to use Google translate - yet.) smile

You are welcome! As they say, it's easy once you know how. smile

The translations at times range from pretty good to verging on hilarious, but one can usually get the gist of what's been said, and that is generally all that's needed. It's a good tool, despite its imperfections.

Dear Gameboomers

Thank you for your warm welcome remarks and appreciation of my website and walkthroughs, even if they are in Dutch. As I stated before, if you have any problems with an English translation through Google translation feel free to e-mail me. I can always try to translate small portion of one of the walkthroughs into English for you. I'm not sure if it is custumary to put personal email refrences here in a post, so I won't do this. If you go to my site at www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl and there click on my name, Louis Koot, you can e-mail me. If you do so, please be specific about the game walkthrough you want help wiith and witch part of the walkthrough you want me to translate for you. I'm sorry for members who have an other native language then English because my Italian, German, Turkish etcetera skills are non existing
Best regards: Louis Koot

Thank yo so much, Louis, Ana, and fellow Boomers. I haven't purchase any of the new adventure games only because I haven't found any text wqalkthroughs lately. Now that these walkthroghs are available to us, I probably will
We are all grateful to you for this, Louis, and I too miss Bert Jamin. Good luck, Louis.
Sandy

Since yesterday, Louis, I have purchased Darkestville Castle because I saw your partial walkthrough of this game on your site. I printed it out, and I'm playing the game. Without this WT, I could never have played it, and Would never have purchased it in the first place.
You ARE a lifesaver, Louis, and I thank you again.
