Hi misslilo,

So glad to hear there are no problems with Win7 64 bits.

I am looking forward to downloading GK1 and other games.

Thanks

I too have the original GKI but I wanted to help the cuase. I downloaded it and it plays fine but the background music is missing. I just wonder if anyone else is experiencing this.

Hi everyone. I noticed someone asking about DOS box w/ the GOG games and I just downloaded Stonekeep and ran it. DOSbox seems to run on it's own automatically and I was in the game and playing in seconds! I'm thrilled to have found this because I always hated having to run DOSbox myself so this is a Godsend. smile

Just wanted to stick my head in and let you guys know.

Cat, off to Stonekeep for awhile longer wink

I just knew this one would be their tuesday release laugh

I'm not so sure we'll be getting the 3rd one though, since it is still sold in stores.
I do hope they prove me wrong though - if they do, I just don't think it will be until easter smile

This is great news. Although I have it on hard disk, paid some hundred dollars for it new in orginal, with book. I finally got it to play with a lot of tricks and problems. I will buy and down load as I like the way Tex Murphy plays now, no problems. Thanks.
Thanks GOG

Wow, they're adding so many excellent games. It's almost a shame I already have them. Almost. lol

Glad to see they are available for those who can't play them anymore and for new players as well. Love the Gabriel Knights. thumbsup

Good Old Games (http://www.gog.com) has an editorial up about Gabriel Knight.
Here's a quote telling with the voice acting in the game:


Quote:
The interface and presentation of the game weren’t the only thing that changed. Gone was the star-studded voice cast of the original, with Tim Curry’s portrayal of Knight in Sins of the Fathers being replaced by a rather more understated performance from Dean Erickson. Erickson’s performance is solid, however, and his co-star Joanne Takahashi as Gabriel’s long-suffering assistant Grace, who plays a much more prominent role in The Beast Within that she did in Sins of the Fathers, gets Grace’s particular brand of curiosity, thoroughness and playful jibes at Gabriel’s expense just right.



And other news from http://www.gog.com this week, you can now buy King's Quest 4-6 at GOG.

Hi Karsten -- I'm combining this with the GOG Gabriel Knight 2 thread. Sounds like an interesting editorial!

I still think that Gabriel Knight 2 The Beast Within is one of the best adventure games that I have ever played. The plot is outstanding and I love how you play as Gabriel and Grace. If you have not played this gem before I suggest you do yourself a favor and add this game to your collection. thumbsup


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Yes I totally agree, one of my top five games ever, I played it for the first time, just a year ago, ran fine on my XP,
and had a BLAST, I was blown away!!!
I also love the other two of these, Gab 1 and 3...
I played 2 first, then 3 and then 1,
I actually like 2 the best, then 3 then one,
but I loved them all, the stories are great,
I was a little disappointed in the first, since I played if for the first time, this last year, but
once I set aside my expectations about the graphics, I really enjoyed it also, the story was just as good as the others, so i also recommend them to anyone who has not played them...
great GEMS
Marcia

HeavenlyJoy, that is the exact order that I have the GK games in as far as favorites are concerned, although I played them in order. smile I agree that they are all outstanding games. thumbsup

My own order of preference is the order in which they were released smile

Sins of the Fathers blew me away when it was first released.
I had never experienced anything so good !!
And what Sierra were able to convey on screen with the graphic capabilities of the time was purely magnificent bravo

I was disappointed not to hear Tim Curry's sexy voice in GK2 evil but still enthralled by the game and the FMV mode was terrific thumbsup

GK3 was a different kettle of fish.
As always, an excellent story but the graphics were from the very start of 3D time and on my first play, I disliked the game because of that.
However, later re-plays have won me over laugh

I traded Gab 2 not long ago on the trade list,
I am not one that usually replays games, but
have been wanting to redo this one, because
I was so enchanted with the
FMV part of the game, I loved watching Grace,
she seemed to have a Magical presence,
hey Gab was nice to look at too wink
I thought WOW, no wonder she was smitten over him,
LOL
Yeh, I wish in the 3rd they would of kept the FMV,
but came around and loved it as well...

I hope they put Ripper also. I got about halfway through using dosbox but now it won't load. I would love a vista compatible version, and an update of Phantasmagoria 2 as well.

I'm loving the games (MYST series right now) from GOG even tho I have the originals etc. However, I would love to see them offering Shivers I and Temujin and Beyond Time and Amerzone too - All the old games that will not play (without lots of tweeking and hair pulling and maybe not at all) on Windows XP, or Vista or 7.
Love, Betty Lou
