Mostly I am Mad - except when I had to wander around doing nothing but enjoy the rain while I waited for a key to be made and then for my photos to be developed. Not as long for the photos thankfully since that was almost immediately after the key. smile

I know game 2 started out more slowly and some people didn't like it, but I seem to remember that I did.

Yes. I liked them ALL - but the first the most smile

However, that "waiting for time to pass" in the first I originally found confusing. Thought I'd missed some vital clue or something (for ages) that would move me on !! shocked

Got to love those older ideas, eh ?? lol

There are two especially bad waits in the original - one with Richard and one later with the priest. That second one took about 40-45 minutes for me. crazy Now, I keep saved games for both of those waits, so I don't have to worry about them again. grin

I suppose they thought the waits would add "realism," but I think there are much better ways to accomplish this. Plus, I think this is one of those instances where the player would want things to be less realistic. lol

Hi Boomers.
I just found a copy of BM2 on my games shelf. Installed it and it's running perfectly on my WIN 10 PC (no serial number needed).
will start it after I finish BM1, and I WILL refer to Louis Koot's amazing walkthrough. HAPPY GAMING!

"Slider" grin

Is that because you just came across it - or because you just conquered it, oldbroad evil

Does that mean I have a "slider puzzle' to deal with in BM2? LOL
When I mentioned Louis's walkthroughs as "Amazing", that includes MAG'S walkthroughs as well. She helped us out for many years, and I know we all appreciate her to this day.

Oh, it's a definite "doozie" of a slider alright eek

After a zillion tries the first time I played the game, I finally solved it.

And, needless to say, kept that save safe for evermore lol

Well, I looked at MaG's walkthrough to see if I could get some guidance and saw that I had the signs in the wrong places. They were in the right order (thanks to Google) but instead of going around the border I had them going across the rows. So, while trying to rectify that, I got it solved. Yay!!

I'm getting close to the end of The Black Mirror 2 now.

Haven't been as enthralled as I was with The Black Mirror (original).

But fully intend to have a re-play of The Black Mirror 3 next yes smile

EDIT :

Started No 3 now !!!! bravo

You made it through the second game pretty fast Mad. Hope your enthrallment returns in game 3!

As I remember, Black Mirror 3 felt more similar in atmosphere to Black Mirror 1 than part 2 did. Still nowhere near the same level, of course, but I liked it more than the second game. I did wish the villain in part 2 would have made an appearance in the third game, however, as this person was one of the more interesting characters in the series. smile

Thanks for the tip, Uncle Reg, It's saving a lot of "clicks" using the RMB for the savegames and Loadgames

I was able to spend more time per session doing my replay of BM2 than I could with BM1 and I eventually found there were some parts I remembered more, too yes

But I doubt it will be the same with BM3 as I don't remember as much of that at all.
Apart from, as venus, says, having a vague feeling it was a better game than BM2 !!
So I expect it will definitely take me longer grin

That's good to know. I just reached Willow Creek in Black Mirror 2, but my progress has been very slow. smile

I just finished game 1 today. Pondering starting 2 tonight or maybe a casual game in between.

I found progress to be slow most of the way through BM2, Marian. But I did enjoy the game. Just not as much as I did BM1.
However, BM3 is cranking up to be much more to my liking grin

I nearly opted for a "rest" between games too, oldbroad, but that old Lure of Adventure sucked me in !! laugh

Yes, I ended up starting the game last night. I can still play a casual, or even something else, along side. I played a Hidden Expeditions game while playing Black Mirror 1. You know, when you need to calm down...

Mad, I think we all share that "addiction" for playing Adventure games, and it's "catching" as well. LOL
