The Indy games get lots of mentions as great games. I'd love to play them too, just to see what all the fuss was about. Well, that and I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan.

Tracy, if you have windows XP, Lands of Lore will play on that. You have to set the exe file to compatibility mode or something, but mine works great on my windows XP. Lands of Lore, throne of Chaos is one of my most favorite games.

Barb I didn't know that! Maybe they will remake them like they did Tomb Raider game. I'd love to play them all.

Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos was one of the very first non-adventure games I played. Loved it.

Yeah, any of the Lands of Lore games would be good to remake (never played the first two). Course, if they just wanted to make a new game (first-person perspective, please) called Lands of Lore IV that continues the storyline, I'd be all for that, too.

Hi Sig. I forgot to check this thread so it's been awhile, but thanks for letting me know that Lands of Lore 3 will work on newer systems! And I might just come to you for advice if/when I get it going and get stuck! Thanks for that. smile

Yeah Tracy, well I think the last PC I played Lands of Lore 3 on was Windows ME, but it might install and run on Win XP. Probably worth a shot, but definitely patch it up to the last version, which I think is 1.07A, and do frequent and strategic quicksaving.
