I will definitely buy this one (after hubby does a clean install on my win 7). Now GOG, please do Black Dahlia.

I also have the original discs - am I interpreting correctly the notion that if I run ScummVm I can then use the original software??


That will be ten Dramoi.

You copy files from the discs to your hard drive.
Then you point ScummVM at the folder you copied the files to and it will be ready to play.

Usually it's fine to just copy everything if it's a single CD, or you can copy the files listed for the game at
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafiles

For Lighthouse, try the following:
Quote:
All SCI32 (SCI2/3) games

Copy all files from each disk or CD to the game directory. Some games need additional work:

Games with multiple CDs

Directories that exist on multiple discs (e.g. ROBOT and VMD directories) must be merged together, not replaced.
Rename the RESOURCE.SFX from each CD to RESSFX.00<cdnumber>, and the RESOURCE.AUD from each CD to RESAUD.00<cdnumber>, to match the corresponding RESSCI.00<cdnumber> file that exists on each CD.
It should be safe to replace any other files from later CDs that were copied already from earlier CDs, except in Phantasmagoria 1 (see below).

Well I'll be!!

I downloaded the scummvm software and installed it.
Then, rather than trying a multi-disc game, I copied the contents of MYST (original) to a folder.
Started scumm, and voila - it worked! I just wish I could do that to all the oldies I would like to replay.

That was nearly an hour ago, so you can guess what I have been doing during that hour: playing a game that I played around 25 years ago. Thanks, and thanks again! It's a teeny bit grainy on a large monitor, but so what. Back to the game - - -

Uh-oh -

I can't figure out how to save a game. If I recall, moving the mouse to the top opened a menu, but that isn't happening.
I tried Ctrl-S and some other keys to no avail...

I have to leave the game running until I can save. Halp!

Kazzmo, talking about spending money on games: I have 122 games in my GOG library alone, but I think it was worth it. I happen to be "independently wealthy" NOT LOL. Happy Gaming!

Tally Ho, On the left in the inventory bar at the bottom of the screen is a pic of the LIGHTHOUSE. Click on that to SAVE, LOAD, Quit, RESUME GAME, OPTIONS, etc. That IS the main menu in this game.
BTW, this game, which I just purchased from GOG runs Perfectly on my WIN 10 PC, no "tweaking" necessary. I originally played Lighthouse in 1996.

Sandford....Couldn't answer you yesterday because my computer went crazy after I had put the Lighthouse and the Shivers walkthroughs on my site. After a long search I found that it was a NVidia Physic driver that was the problem, so I removed it an the problem was over. Don't now how that driver came to be on my computer because I have a Radeon card from AMD in it. Maybe it installed during installation of a game and was left behind when I uninstalled that game.

But the Lighthouse and the Shivers walkthroughs are back on my site. They are old walkthroughs from 2005 and then they were remakes of still older walkthroughs I made when the games came out original. The screenshots are a bit vague, but that's just the way they are. Maybe I go do a new walkthrough for Lighthouse with new screenshot and maybe I can do it in English this time, since I have practice my English with the English Xing walkthrough, that by the way is also ready now.

Please to read that you got hold of Goetia....a very nice but very difficult game to play. If you can pardon me I'll take the chance to promote my very detailed Goetia walkthrough here, and off course you can find it on my site. Also our Syberia 3 walkthrough is ready. I'm not going to do an English Syberia 3 walkthrough since that is already done by Mr. Bill and he did a very fine job with it

Happy gaming all

Marinus_Louis

I loaded Lighthouse in my cart and it asked for number since it did not recognize my computer. I said send me the code and that was one day and a few hours ago and no code. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Number? Do you mean password? Was it supposed to come to your email address? Is that listed correctly? Could it have gone to a spam filter?

I may have used the wrong word but I have used GOG for years and have never been asked to supply a code. My password is not in question it is the code they reference.

Ah, now I understand... GOG did start using two-step authentication some time ago. I suspect that's it.

Check the email you use for GOG.
This is an annoying thing that many online game sellers are doing now. They send a code to your email if they haven't been allowed to keep a cookie on your computer.

Draclvr, I believe that you are absolutely correct about that "authentication" that GOG asks for randomly, All I had to when asked for a "CODE" they sent it immediately to my e-mail. Went and got the "code" from the GOG e-mail reply and put it into the "Authentication" Window, and then I promptly got the OK from GOG, and was able to get my game into the GOG game library. As far as accessing Lighthouse, I didn't have to go through all of that nonsense. I just paid for my game, and it immediately went into my GOG "Library", I guess I will have to go through that "procedure" again sometime in the future.

If this is the 'dual authentification' procedure, when it was first introduced it was optional and I didn't like it so opted out and have never had to comply since.

( Unless this is something else and I haven't experienced it yet ?? woozy )

I disabled it on my account, too, and have never had a problem since.

I went ahead and left the dual authentication on my account. I've only had to do it once and it took all of about 60 seconds. I also use dual authentication at Steam and for all of my other accounts where I have to use a credit card. I never allow them to "keep" my credit card info for the future, but nothing is impossible for the hackers.
