Maybe somebody should contact the author and suggest that there is interest in it, and that he offer it for sale again.
It had good reviews (see Mr. Bill above)

I just looked at some screenshots. They are beautiful, but what I would politely call "derivative" (not very original) Who cares? We MYST players love that stuff.

Tally Ho, the company is closed and the developer is working on art for movies like Despicable Me. He has deleted all his access and emails from Kickstarter and such but he is on FaceBook. I sent him a message but not really expecting an answer. I do not believe he wishes to be contacted.

I DO have "The Five Cores". it was a downloaded version, but I'm not sure where I purchased it. could have been through Amazon, or Gamersgate at the time. If I remember, I will let you know. BTW: I loved the game and I had a good Text WT to help me along.

Only sites I just found are PHONY and NOT legitimate. BEWARE!

Thanks for the link. It refreshed my memory about Five Cores. I posted in that thread that I ran into installation problems (missing msvcrt.dll issue) and once I got it running there was tedious retracing steps and major head bob that made me nauseous. I never came close to completing it.

Five Cores was released around the same time as a game called Kairo, which was also a 3D game. People generally thought Kairo had better puzzles, even though its graphics looked less "pretty" than The Five Cores. Of course neither game looked as good as a pre-rendered game from 15 years earlier, like Riven.

Kairo is still available at places like Fireflower.

I played that game back then without ANY "incident". Great story. wonderful graphics. music, and sounds. I hope you CAN find this game somewhere from a legitimate seller.

Hello,

I'm the developer. I no longer support this game but I uploaded it on Gamejolt if anyone is still interested.
If you experience some in-game graphic issues read the description on the game page where I explain how to fix it.

Hi Jenny,

Wonderful for him to do this.

I have two questions:

1. How large is the download (mine just now says 461 MB). My computer did not want to download anything. Its reason is that this file has not been downloaded in a long time. But it doesn't even want to open a file that I have had on this computer for a couple of years or one I created.

2. The developer says "description on the game page where I explain how to fix it." Can you give the link to this page?

Thank you,

Bill

mrbill, Jenny? Are you referring to her post on Kairo or my post on Five Cores?

If the latter, the download is 461 MB.

THe instructions are below the download link:
Quote:
Know issues:

Black screen : Disable windows UAC (user account control) and composting.

No sound : Open control panel > Sound > Properties > Advanced > Check "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"

Graphic glitch in-game : Open explorer > Program Files > Neebla Games >The Five Cores > Binaries > Win32 > Create a shortcut for T5C.exe and add the parameter -dx11 in the shortcut properties.

Sorry Ana, My Vision goes Bonkers sometimes. One of the reasons for the walkthrough to take so long. I'm now working on the Downloadable Content Portion of the Game.

Thank you for the answers.

Take care,

Bill

No worries mrbill! I thought maybe it had something to do with Kairo perhaps. Have a happy day!
