Katsmom, I have an integrated Intel Graphics chip (never again), 64 MB SDRAM, but I didn't have any problem at all with Post Mortem.It wasn't one of my favorites, but it did have some different sort of puzzles to play, and there were different paths to follow to get to the end, which I did like. As I like the character interaction games as opposed to what I call the "lonely" games, I liked it best of what you had to play next.
Thank you for letting me know, nickie! So Post Mortem should play using my Intel chipset... <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

I also prefer the character interaction games, over the "lonely" games (great term for it!). I love to TALK, so I guess that makes sense. laugh

I checked on the HerInteractive site to see if any of the Nancy Drew kids we knew were there. Didn't recognize a single name. I hope they made it ok.

Mind if I draw up a chair and set awhile? I need a place like this to go to since Tac closed.
Melia -- it's so good to 'see' you here! duh

Post Mortem - forget it on an onboard chipset - it loaded fine - opening movie played fine but once the game started the characters moved soooooooooo slow it was pathetic ('course as jerky as they moved that might be an improvement) lol I'm going to see if I can put more RAM to the video card and see if that helps but so far it's a no go.

You have a bunch of great games on their way Katsmom. I loved Sanitarium. That game will probably be more of a problem with XP than the type of card since it's an older game. I haven't tried to run it on XP yet. I thought the first Drac game was terrific - I had to throw my body over the monitor at one part when my son came in the computer room, however (those that played the game know what I'm talking about) wink I also loved Riddle of the Sphinx and to a lesser extent The Omega Stone and I loved Dark Fall.

As to Riven and Exile - both are beautiful games, espceially Exile - they're just not my personal favorites. I haven't played the two Law & Orders nor the two CSI's - I really need to - love the tv shows. Maybe when I'm done with Outcast I'll start them since I really, really need to widdle down my unplayed stack - it's starting to get embarrassing blush
Hi again, syd. I've already played Sanitarium on my XP, and had terrible trouble. We had a long thread going about Sanitarium, on the TAC board. I posted about my endless game crashes while playing, and my creative 'tweaking' attempts that did no good, whatsoever! frown Inferno, I just realized that you're a member of GB. I tried to use your set-up for Sanitarium, but it didn't make any difference. My game crashed and crashed and crashed... well, you get the idea.

I really must believe that the problem I had was with the Intel integrated chipset and/or the driver -- which has recently been updated numerous times. I believe this because other members posted that they had no problem playing Sanitarium on their XPs with a 'real' video card.

I enjoyed ROTS and TOS, but my favorite games are the ones with human contact in them. I did love Sanitarium, despite my serious technical problems while playing it.

Syd, you mention a certain spot in Dracula: Resurrection (which I haven't yet played), where you couldn't allow your son to look. Do you (or anyone) remember a similar situation in DARK FALL? I was stunned by the unexpected and completely gratuitous PHOTOS in George's desk. It ruins what IMO would otherwise be a great adventure game for kids. And speaking of Dark Fall -- when the TAC lights went out, I'd just posted to ask if there were TWO versions of that game released? Because in MY version, I never got killed off -- not even in front of IT, when I made a mistake doing the 'trials'... Someone else posted that she HAD been killed off, while playing Dark Fall.

As for SCHIZM, well... it didn't sound like my favorite kind of game, so that ALSO keeps it at the bottom of the pile.

I didn't post which games I have coming in the mail yet; will save that for later! wink

YES! I do remember you, Rusty. I didn't see you around the TAC boards for a long time, though. Now I know where you've been hanging out. wink

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! smile

Gatorlaw-LOL! My name is Laura but that user name seems to always be taken, so I use unlaura because when I very first got internet service that was the username they gave me, un being the first two letters of my last name. wink Iknow, not very creative!

Sorry about that Katsmom - I'm confusing what you played to what you haven't laugh

Those integrated video chips are a pain. I generally build my own computers but this last time bought one "off the rack" so to speak. It came with onboard sound and video and before I walked out of the store I had a stand alone video card in hand. Used to be all adventure games could be played on low end machines - not any more - the system specs are getting up there with FPS and RPGs. That's why I have a few computers sitting around me - one with XP, one with W98SE and my trusty old P133 with W95 and it's whopping one meg video card and SB16 thumbsup I get bored with just roaming around looking at stuff - I want to converse with people - find out what's going on in their world and yell at them for doing something dumb lol

That's okay, syd; even I can't remember sometimes what I've played! In a few weeks or so, I should have 14 adventure games in my UNPLAYED pile - eek - so as you can see, we have THAT in common, too!

So, syd -- can I join the dark side guild of "Not A Clue" who's game shelves runnuth over? laugh

Katsmom with only 14 games in your unplayed pile you are a mere baby - wait till you've been around us for a while evil We hang out in the RPG/Action forum. I'm a recent convert to said Dark Side of the gaming world (hence the "not a clue") - I dipped my toes into the murky waters of RPGs and found out I love them - lots of stuff to do, people to talk to, places to go to-ing and fro-ing (I love to go to-ing and fro-ing). Makes a nice change from adventure games.
