    Writing.... I'm a published fiction author.

  1. Thanks for bringing this up. I didn't realize I could get a Skunk copy of 2042 from Orion. I have bought and downloaded most of his other games from his website, and burned them to CD.
  2. I'm toying with the idea of getting a Raspberry Pi for the primary purpose of playing ST games. I dunno... I've just been getting a jones to play Blood Money, Dungeon Master, Time Bandits...

      Are you playing those on a PC emulator now, or not at all?

    2. Max_Chatsworth


      which ST emulator would you use for linux?

      Carlsson, I haven't played an ST game since I foolishly sold my system a decade ago. I've just been thinking about all the fun I used to have, and feel like getting back into it. Max, I'm not sure which ST emulator works on the Pi, but I know at least one of them does. The Internets say Hatari works. 


  3. I really should be working right now... just not feeling the motivation. 

  4. I'm using my Windows 2000-era laptop (shocked that it's still working) to load Jag games with my Skunk. Played up to level 9 on Doom II, now I'm playing Downfall. Fun weekend!

      Where does one get DOOM II?

      Boy, I don't recall. Apparently I've had it since 2011. It's something that was showcased at an eJagfest, since "level 1" is basically two screens with eJagFest and Doom II printed on them. The other levels are, so far, accurate to the Doom II PC levels (though are off a level - IE Jag level 2 is the original's level 1, etc). I have to assume I found it here on AA, so maybe try searching for "Doom II" / "Doom 2" here, going back to the 2011 era.


      Or... :)



  5. Well, I flashed the new version, so I have 03.00.02 as well. I re-downloaded the copy of the game from the first post in the other thread, tried loading it a few more times, but nope... I hear the quickest click, then the title screen loads, but no music, and hitting buttons doesn't start it. Oh well. I appreciate the effort CJ (and I'm happy that I have the current version of everything). But I guess this game is just not in my immediate future. I'll just reload Downfall. I love that game!! I'll stop highjacking the thread. Good luck everyone and have fun! Cheers, Smeg
  6. I just downloaded the latest version from Harmless Lion's website. I tried it using jcp version 02.04.02 (built on Jul 10 2016, which is what I got off the Harmless Lion website). Still no sound, no way to play it. It says I'm using boot version 02.00.05, serial 2149. Is there a newer version, do you know? Sorry to be a pain. I would so enjoy giving this one a try. Smeg
  7. Forgive me if this is a dumb question, since I haven't used my Skunk Board (rev 2) in a while. I loaded it using my (surprisingly still working) Windows 200 era laptop, using the DOS shell, with the command jcp -f. It loads just fine, but when I run it, there's no music, and hitting the "fire" button isn't starting the game. I've flashed it a few times now, trying both banks (jcp -2f) , but that's what I get, a quiet title screen that mocks and taunts me to hit the fire button. Hell man, I'm hitting all the buttons! Any words of advice? Cheers, Smeg
  8. Glad to hear that! I've read several excellent reviews including yours, so I'm ordering mine today. Can't wait!
  9. Apple Panic - 41,390 points. I've never made it to the second death head thingy level before. :)

    Archon - My only piece left was the Wizard - outnumbered by Darkness 5 to 1... and I kicked the Dark's Arse!

    Next up...Dreadnought Factor - Level 5!

      I 2nd M.U.L.E. and Archon!!!

  11. Hi Al, I'll also add (pun not intended... but I'll take it) my agreement that ads will be fine. I am extremely happy that you won't do video ads, though. Those irritate me to no end! I've all but stopped visiting the MLB website due to all the ads, video ads, auto-paying videos... No point in annoying visitors. But yeah, if ads will help keep this wonderful site afloat, add 'em.
  12. This is truly a wonderful thing! Doom is a keeper, to be sure. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

  14. Orion, I purchased and downloaded Alice's Mom's Rescue and Elansar. Thanks so much for offering them so inexpensively! Being in a perpetually poor state, it's nice to have new games to play without breaking the bank. I'll be playing over the holidays. Thanks again! Cheers, Smeg
