Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Thanks for everything, Dom - the files look great.

btw, I worked out how to save and reload files in Oricutron :)

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

I have managed to solve both part 1 and 2 of KWII and the two maps are also drawn :) But do not congratulate me to fast because.... I am just an horrible cheater :D I read most of puzzles solutions right in the listing. The good aspect doing this way is that I have been able to correct most of the ...

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Yeah, I think that page has gone but it's still viewable in the internet archive, ie. http://web.archive.org/web/200803051410 ... cheats.htm

I was trying to find KW1's full solution so I can separate that game in my mind from KW2.

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Right, KW2 pt1 - gotcha. Bear in mind I've only got access via an emulator (Oricutron 0.9). I remember loading a copy of KW2 a few years ago and it was corrupted to hell and wouldn't play properly. The version I've got now on Oricutron seems to mostly be okay, but some simple instructions such as I(...

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

I just sent a PM. I thought this was in the KW1 game (itself in two parts). Or are you playing KW2? It's definitely 'drink liquid here' and if memory serves, will lead to the character shrinking... There is a breakable translation formula but I'm buggered if I can remember what it was about. The sam...

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Yes, sorry for not clarifying. The Quill was a brilliant adventure-writing system. A fantastic bit of software, later eclipsed on other micros by GAC Graphic Adventure Creator, as The Quill was text only.

The scam one I got was from live.co.uk
Ah.... looks like the scammer has got access to two accounts then, or is simply spoofing the sender addy. I haven't received anything from the live addy.

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Sorry, guys, I have no copies. KW1 was Quilled, so perhaps not portable to disk or emulator? I don't think I've ever seen an Oric Quilled game make it to a non-tape format, but I could be wrong there...

Re: John S. Sinclair on Oric.org

Ah - well remembered. I'm pretty sure there was an Ian, as well. I can't find my interview with John to check what he said. I think he mentioned the team behind IJK. Maybe Ian was in the office? I remember there being an Ian too... IJK... at least, that's what my memory is telling me. Zorgon's Reve...

Re: Emails from Dave D...

Yep, some scamming scumbag is pretending to be Dave, on the hunt for wonga. It's a copy/paste scam e-mail that appears all over the net. I won't post Dave's real e-mail addy here but it's NOT currently a hotmail.com addy, so if you receive anything asking for money, or claiming that a family member ...

Emails from Dave D...

I think Dave D's email might have been hacked, or someone is pretending to be him.... until further notice be very careful of any e-mails from 'him' via any hotmail.com address. His usual e-mail is a live.co.uk address. I am trying to reach Dave to confirm.

Re: ZX Vega: the Spectrum's return

I just read ComputerActive's review of this machine - not very flattering. Seems a potentially fun machine is let down by clumsy design.
