2:48 pm - Day of the Tentacle: 6 icons, 1 friends-only banner

I was replaying DOTT earlier this week, and when I saw the caption "Highly restricted judging area" I knew that that should be on a friends-only banner.

8:19 pm - Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge sampler finished!

The Monkey Island 2 sampler is finished, and I think it turned out pretty nice! The whole thing is on fabric that measures 15" high by 18" wide, and I started posting progress on 9/23/12. It was finished on 10/11/12.

The LucasArts sampler is finished!! And now framed and I hope I never have to get it out, because framing it was a bigger PITA than it should have been.

12:44 am - Loom

Hi, I hope this community is still active since I only just found it and you seem like nice people!

I've recently gotten back on an adventure game kick and I really really want to play Loom. I downloaded a torrent from Pirate Bay that has most if not all the SCUMM games plus SCUMMVM and some other stuff. It contained two versions of Loom, presumably the CD version and the older VGA version. They both run, but I can't hear any sound.

My questions:

How do I know if sound is working properly?
Is there supposed to be music during the Lucasarts logo? During the title logo?
Which data files actually have sound data on them? *.ogg files are in a separate folder from the *.lec and *.lfl files.
Is the game solvable without sound? I mean, don't I need to be able to hear the threads?

I tried to troubleshoot this for three hours tonight and am completely confused. I tried it both on and off SCUMMVM, tried all the audio configurations, tried running the files off the harddisk and mounting/burning the CD image. I downloaded the files to a WinXP computer, but also have the option of trying them on a Win95 laptop.

Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this.

Edit: Problem solved! Thanks everybody!

11:31 pm - Grim Fandango icons

Is it possible to load cutscenes from games (specifically, Grim Fandango) into media players? Because I'd be able to make better icons if I can. Speaking of icons, here's 5 Grim Fandango ones. Only five because animated icons take forever to make.

Please credit ohh_redlace if you use any, and commenting is always appreciated but not required :)

8:25 pm - DOTT Question!

I've been playing DOTT lately, for the first time in a while, and something seems a bit odd. I remember there always being audible speech. Are there different versions or adjustable options or something? I'm playing it on my mac through scummVM and there is only spoken speech during a cut scene or something. I swear the old one was entirely audible speech...

Any ideas?

6:31 pm - Help!

Hello, I am completely new here! I grew up on DOTT and Fate of Atlantis, and I've just recently tried to rediscover these rad games. I was wondering where I could possibly download a copy of DOTT, The Dig, Monkey Islnd, etc. for OS X (I'm running scummVM, does it matter which platform I download, like will the PC version run on my scummVM running under OS X?) I already own lots of these games for PC, and I want to get them running on my mac. Any help would be appreciated!

5:40 pm - Can you bring the funny?

Attention! Attention! GameCola is looking for new writers!

OK, so, actually, chances are you've never heard of GameCola, and you’re probably wondering why you should be “Attention! Attention!”ing right now. We're an online gaming newsletter with a vague focus on retro titles, and we've been around for just over four-and-a-half years. We get a quite modest 150-200 hits a day, though that always seems to be going up, at least slightly.

Here's the site if you wanna check it out: http://www.gamecola.net

What we have to offer you: Nothing! Ha-ha! Of course, that's just an absolutely hilarious joke; what we really have to offer you is this: Uhhh. An e-mail address? Yes! yourname@gamecola.net! It's two gigs! That's totally more than G-mail, isn't it? It was at one point, at any rate. And, if you wanted, you could put this as a resume and use me as a reference, as people have been actually known to do. Plus, you get the experience and satisfaction of writing for a gaming newsletter and actually having your stuff read. I swear we have readers!

We’re definitely not going to give you any money, though. At times we have free games to offer, but that’s pretty rare, and the free games are generally of the “Dragon’s Lair Ported to DVD for the Umpteenth Time” variety.

What we're looking for:

Review writers and columnists. Reviewers are more in demand right now, but we could use both. We've got a number of old columns just waiting to be taken over by fresh blood. These columns include "You Learn Something New Every Play," which is about the educational value of videogames/things you can learn from videogames; "Games for the Casual Gamer" which is pretty self-explanatory; and "Judging a Game by its Cover," which examines the coverart of today’s videogames, generally picking apart the one’s that aren’t terribly good. This is in addition to a few new ideas I've been tossing around in my handy dandy notebook.

Plus, really, if you've got an idea of your own, chances are I'd be willing to go with it. Unless your idea is “I wanna write my thoughts on gaming newzzzz~!!~!@#~~!,” because we’ve already got (this is a rough estimate) 600 people doing that.

Cartoonists. We’ve been sorely lacking in the Web comic department for years now, and I’m looking to make better on it. A comic, or even multiple comics, on the gaming industry, gamers, or anything remotely related to gaming would be totally keen.

With any new writers, cartoonists, and so forth we have coming aboard, there’s on particular thingie we’re looking for: A sense of humor. If you don’t got it, we’re not too interested. Just something to keep in mind.

Okay, that's about it! If you're interested please send any writing/comic samples you might have to pfranzen@gamecola.net, or just post a reply here and I'll drop you a line.

Thanks for your time!

- Paul Franzen

5:29 pm - whats the name of the game?

Okay adventure game experts...Was I dreaming or does this game actually exist, and if so, what is it called?
Years and years ago...probably about 8 or 9, or maybe even more, I was at my uncles house, where he showed me a "new" computer game he had gotten. It was quite old school, since it was most likely made in the 90s, very pixelated, with dialogue writing onscreen similar to monkey island 1.

All I saw was the beginning of it, so all I have to go on are my fuzzy memories of the sequence, but I remember a large mansion-like house and something about a baby being left in a basket on the front steps, but something was wrong with it, like it was supposed to be evil or something. I think it had glowing red eyes. It was pretty freaky looking, or at least, it freaked me out, and it was definately not geared towards children, it seemed more like a mystery or horror genre, so I did'nt have any interest in playing the game then and went back to Monkey Island. Now I am extrmeley curious to know what that game is because its been bugging me for a while now. Does this sound familiar to anybody? Or does someone know of a place that lists adventure games and their descriptions? Let me know!

current mood: curious

Hello everyone! I know this is probably a FAQ but, does anyone know anywhere where I can download old DOS games? That aren't bit torrent? for free? without viruses? haha, I've been searching for weeks since I got my new laptop and I haven't found ANYthing. Just demos and stuff.

Especially interested in: Monkey Islands, DotT, Sam n Max, Loom. Also, do old games like Quest and Sherlock Holmes work on the SCUMMvm? If they do, anyone know where to get them? :P

Okay that's it! plz don't hate me :P

vozhd7 I've been playing a ton of video games this summer, both new and old.

One of the best I've played, surprisingly, is Beavis and Butt-Head Do U. A 1998 point and click adventure game where they go on a fieldtrip to college. The only downside is that the constant "hehehe hehehe" stuttering laugh whenever beavis or butt-head talk can get slightly annoying. Other than that the game is awesome, hilarious, and fun. There are also several mini-games embedded in it that test your reflexes.

I think the best games in this genre have high quality cartoon type graphics. Recently I've tried playing another, newer adventure game called Jazz and Faust with 3D computer generated type graphics and it kind of sucked. I also tried to play Exile (Myst 3) and just couldn't because the interface and setting were so boring.

Sadly, it seems like the hand drawn animation games stopped being made around the late 90's. I want to know why? Everyone I've talked to likes the cartoon graphics for these games better. Does it cost them more money to do this animation or what?

What I think would be really popular is if they took some of the adult swim shows on now, like The Venture Bros, or Tom Goes to the Mayor, and made mid 90's lucas arts style adventure games of them. I think we should start a letter writing campaign to get these types of games made.
