I searched his site for Black Dahlia could not find it. That game has 8 disks and the swapping drove me nuts I never finished playing it. Oh well, you can't have it all. Mad I can not wait until you play Amber Journeys and tell us your opinion.

This is interesting, as I posted above I purchased Lost in Time. For those of you who have questions it
arrived today. I received two disks one is an install disc to enable an easy install updated version. You can either install from the exe file or paste it to your hard drive for a faster install. A desktop icon appears click on it and the game starts up it is running just fine on my Win 7. The problem is I got stuck on what to do (How to get the cork plug out of the wall?) That's fine except I'm the clown who wrote the walk through found on this site, DUH. Well it's been eleven years since I've played it. You don't need a disc in the drive to play the game. A very nice easy setup.

A second disc is included it is the original Sierra game disk must be a copyright issue. This should tell you it is a safe place to buy.

Thanks for giving us the details, oldmariner. It's appreciated.

After eleven years I certainly would not remember everything about a game, even if I had written the walkthrough. smile

That is exactly why it is in there, otherwise it would be illegal for him to sell them. He has no rights to the games, he is basically selling original versions with an added benefit of being able to run them. If he runs out of originals, he can't sell that game any more.

I wonder if a person can send their own disc to him and have it returned along with an install disc.

Now that is a good question. I suppose you could send a query to him via his website.

I also just bought "Amber The Journeys Beyond" from this game seller as well, my second purchase from them in about a week. I don't remember if I EVER played this game before, so I'm looking forward to it. There are TWO great walkthroughs here on GB for this game, so I'm printing out one of them right now. I just received the successful confirmation of my order from the seller in my e-mail, so I expect to get the "Download" link e-mail very soon so I can install it.
HAPPY GAMING!
Sandy

Sanford and lexxy - I'm confused. You are getting downloads from this seller? Not discs?

I was confused too until I got an email moments ago in which he states the game is being dispatched by USPS.
