I also just bought "Amber The Journeys Beyond" from this game seller as well, my second purchase from them in about a week. I don't remember if I EVER played this game before, so I'm looking forward to it. There are TWO great walkthroughs here on GB for this game, so I'm printing out one of them right now. I just received the successful confirmation of my order from the seller in my e-mail, so I expect to get the "Download" link e-mail very soon so I can install it.
HAPPY GAMING!
Sandy

Sanford and lexxy - I'm confused. You are getting downloads from this seller? Not discs?

I was confused too until I got an email moments ago in which he states the game is being dispatched by USPS.

Hi oldbroad, ordinarily they DO sell these games as downloads. I bought "Bicycle Bridge" as a download. however, I just bought the download of "Amber-Journeys Beyond", downloaded the setup file, but it would NOT install, so I contacted the seller and he is shipping the DISC version to me, and I should receive it around Wednesday in my "snail mail". I will let you know how THAT works out.

To my knowledge, Amber has never been legally sold as a download.

The allvideo guy sends an original game disc along with his custom install DVD.

The "all video guy's" name is CHRIS, and he assured me that the DVD disc WILL work for me. He has been doing everything to try and help keeping this customer HAPPY, so when I get the disc, I will let you know if it DOES "work" for me. Thanks for everybody's input.

Hi everyone. I wanted to post and say a big thank-you for posting this website address. I have SO many old games that I'd love to replay, plus many that I never played back in the day and would love to play now, but I have a newish laptop with Windows 10, and so I thought I'd have to buy an old computer and run Win 95 or 98 to be able to play them. This is awesome and I can't wait to see what games this guy has for sale!

Tracy : )

Hello again,
I did receive the disc of "AMBER", installed it but it did not run. I contacted Chris at Allvideo, and he sent me some files to patch and upgrade the game, and now it's running very well, as he had promised. He IS a man of his word, so now he has a steady customer. If you see this thread, Chris, thank you for being here for me.

I got my copy of Amber Journeys Beyond today followed the instructions and it is working like a charm. Chris also included Lighthouse on the disc and it also works as promised. I am one happy camper. Amber brings back some good old memories of when I first became an adventure gamer.

I just ordered a disc from him. I have the original ROTS game but can't get it to play on
Win 10 so he is sending me an install disc so it will play on Win 10. I'll let everyone know if everything works out.

I absolutely love this seller! - I got to play Callahan's Crosstime Saloon after being sent the original + install disc which was a game I was always intrigued by & has turned out to be a favourite! I have bought other hard to get games too, yes pricey but the seller always threw in a few freebies! joy

Hi Chrissie,
in my not so humble opinion, The price I pay for his (CHRIS's) games is well worth the higher price. Just the thought of playing the "old" games and\or re-playing them. is not an issue with me. I have bought two games from his site, had a problem with one of them "Amber Journeys Beyond" and he worked with me until he got it "fixed",by sending me an actual disc. Now the game is up and running, and Chris has another "satisfied" customer, You can't ask for more than THAT, and I think you will agree with me.
HAPPY GAMING!
Sandy

I received my ROTS install disc. installed everything and the game is running fine no problems.

I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and I will probably purchase from him again in the future.
