Hi.

Have to hope this silly behaviour gets nipped in the bud mad

These Tierra "game remakes" are just marvellous and give us another taste of what true adventuring was once really like happydance

Cheers.

BillyBob, on the King's Quest Tierra games you can download the basic game and will be able to play just fine. If you download the speech packs, there will be voices in the game as well as text to read; the music download will add a nice soundtrack. Not necessary for the games, but the speech and music do enhance them. smile

Okay - some will understand, and others will not... Dimitri - Look I got it right!

Yeah, it's a shame. I surely hope it doesn't cause any problems for Tierra.

This guy was left feedback on 12/7/02 from someone warning that the CD might not be original, so the seller claims he has a copyright on the CD.
This is another one like the one demidemidemi found. So he has already sold at least one if not more.

Jenny, only KQ1 has a speech version. KQ2 remake only has a music pack, which you do not need to run KQ2, but it is highly recommended to install it also, since then the music quality will be much superior to the MIDI version.

Thanks, Dimi, I'll download it then. I wonder why they did speech in #1 but not in #2? But it's no big deal, I've played other very good games (like Passage) that didn't have speech...

I looked at this guys EBAY site, and he sells all kind of compelations of games and other software. He puts a fancy label on the CD's so they 'look' authentic!

I noticed he has over 60 negative feedbacks, but more than 2000 possitives. I guess with sites like the now defunct Napster and others like it, most people just don't see this for what it is... stealing! (or they just don't care!)

I Do remember the agapito and other games being made available on Ebay UK, I steered clear as I didn't recognise the games and thought that if we needed an emulator to play, it wasn't 100% Kosher. ie a rip of an older game. This was about 6 months ago....

I think we are back into the freeware/abandonware saga with this.. Someone bothered to create the game, oh for a scenario where we could just send a royalty to the creator and be allowed to play!!

The other thing these guys do is create a fake id for Ebay, use it for a while, then start pushing bogus stuff. Not sure if this guy comes into this category, but it Does happen.

Hi tigger,

read your mail. Sorry about my 'hacker' comments in the beginning of this thread, but I was really angry with the guy. It really annoys me when someone tries to get money out of something that those who worked for it, give it out for free.

it's because KQ2VGA is a *much* bigger game than their first remake (with a lot more dialogue). the KQ2 download was already 40+ MB and they didn't want their downloads to be prohibitive since online distribution is their only distribution.

No need to apologise Dimi, I'm sure quite a lot of us feel the same way smile
