Ditto, but Oxenfree warrants your attention sometime soon.

I finished Journey to the Center of the Earth a couple f days ago. It was good except moving the protagonist around. She didn't want to go where I wanted her to go and by the last 1/3 of the game I was losing patience and consulting the walkthough.

Last night I started Memento Mori. I will need to find something else to play though so I can switch off when I get stuck or just need a change. I tried to play The Sacred Amulet in my XP but it will not work.

Tropico IV is my hint for you, It's a great city-builder, yes
instead of an adventure, but you will have lots of fun
with it. You're a dictator on a tropical island who
must try to keep his people happy by building the
things they need or (true to the word) be a real dictator
and be a harsh ruler. scared

The risk is than there might be a revolt.
But you'll have soldiers and the secret police!
(That might save you're career (and life!) or not ...
You'll have different tasks to fullfill
to win an assignment. You can regard an assignment
as a Chapter.

The series have been a big hit in Germany.
I had lots of fun with Tropico 3 and 4
(have 5 as well ...) yay (Bananarepublic! snicker)

There was a thread about XP patches for Sacred Amulet/Aztec here

There were some unofficial patches made that allowed it to run on XP (separate patches for different languages and for CD vs DVD), but most of the links in that thread don't work anymore.

Yes, thanks Jenny100. I had found that thread and clicked on the link titled English/International CD Patch posted by KSE which is supposed to go to 4shared.com and my Malwarebytes and Norton both went CRAZY! I didn't try any others.

EDIT: Ok, I tried the link that Iurii posted for the Polish CD patch (under "or here")and have downloaded the AztecPL5.zip. I'll give it a try if it's not too complicated for me.

2nd EDIT: I've continued this over in Glitches. Thanks!

3rd EDIT: Thanks to Iurii's patch and Jenny100's help installing it, I am also now playing The Sacred Amulet.

Thanks for your recommendations concerning my "which game to take next?" -list. Gabriel Knight 2 got most votes and that is what I take then, but not until next weekend. The others will have to wait their turn, but your other recommendations stay on top. And you can always give more hints, the pile is not empty any day soon.

Have fun with Gabriel Knight 2 then TJL. I may have recommended it but I haven't played it yet either so I couldn't.

TJL, enjoy Gabriel Knight 2! I consider it one of the best games ever made, and it's my favorite of the series. All 3 games are amazing, in fact. smile

I also strongly recommend The Cat Lady and/or The Moment of Silence once you're finished. Also, I agree with flotsam, definitely give Oxenfree a try. thumbsup

I plan on replaying The Lost Crown and The Last Crown Midnight Horror around October. I really hope that The Last Crown Blackenrock comes out soon. I've been waiting to play that game forever.

Thorsgoats, I know what you mean! Hopefully, that game will make it out one of these days. It's becoming mythical at this point. lol

Venus, I like the screeshots that were posted a long time ago. I hope the game comes out soon before the screenshots become a distant memory.

Started playing Gabriel Knight 2 today. Played the first chapter and liked the story but not the overall quality of the graphics. Any hints to make the game look even a bit more decent on NVIDIA GTX 970 and WQHD (2560x1440) screen? Tried this and that already but I believe there are plenty of DOSBox specialists here who can do miracles with right settings. I'm playing the GOG version. Thanks in advance.

I'm rather sceptical of you being able to improve the graphics.
[Although I'm no techie !!]

This is a really old game (1995) and the mere fact of being able to play it on a modern machine is wonderful .... to me anyway yes

TJL, if you want to talk about Gabriel Knight and graphical options, please post your questions over in Glitches where our techies hang out. wave

I finished Memento Mori a few days ago and The Sacred Amulet tonight. Both games were pretty good although I did have trouble finding my way around one area of The Sacred Amulet.

Tonight I started Memento Mori 2 and played for about an hour. So far, I'm thinking the first game was better but we'll see how it goes. The voice acting doesn't seem very good in this second game.

I am playing Faust at the moment.
Had it for years, could not get it
to run (on windows 10) and
after I did (somehow) I never got
past Chapter 1.

Now, with a lot of help
from the various walkthroughs, urock woot
I got to chapter 4, leaving behind
me a lot of frustrating moments
(and the endless repetition of the songs).
I am still intrigued by the game though!

I like the Faust game - but it's not the most straightforward, I agree grin

I finally finished Memento Mori 2 tonight. Had a few technical glitches but otherwise a long, decent game. Stories often confuse me, but I liked the puzzles well enough.

I had also started Unavowed but haven't played for a few days while I tried to finish Mememnto Mori 2. I'm going back to that and thinking about playing The Crystal Key. Will see! My mind changes from day to day about what to play but that one has been in it for a few days now, but since I haven't yet installed it...
