Re: PoP videos / images

I didn't even knew he had a daughter... Neither did I. And this year he suddenly mentioned her (at least) twice. (The other mention I know of is here .) Since I think he divorced Hills, maybe it's a daughter of his new partner. Or maybe he deliberately never mentioned her to keep away the media/fan...

Re: Forum spam

These auto-created user accounts have spam in their signatures. If these users are merely banned and their posts removed, the profile page ("memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile") still shows the spam ( ex , ex , ex ). Perhaps the bots that auto-create user accounts do not verify if member pages are publ...

Re: SDLPoP and SDL 2.0.6

Here is the bug report about the popping: https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3846 Further developments: Ryan marked it as a duplicate, but my bug is still present. So I attached a recording and some analysis. Did you also try the patch by Eric ( link ), as Ryan writes he "went with a diffe...

Re: Runen (1996)

You pretty much summarized what I also noticed while playing it. :)
Summarized... as you wrote, there's definitely lots of things to write about.
Yep, the run-jump also made me think of my 2012 efforts. :)

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Hey kieranhj. BBC Master, so obscure. :) Good luck completing the game. Quite a project. It's too bad that that emulator stops when switching away from its tab. Because it means players are forced to wait for all the disk drive 'nonsense'. Hm, "]" seems to be up-right for me. It would be nice if pla...

David, I guess maybe put all the "Runen (1996)" related posts in a separate thread?
Done.
Thanks.

You'd need a float potion to get down there safely I think.
Yeah, but as NITM-T wrote, down there is just death.

Re: Nosferatu (1994)

Attached are also the level codes I got after levels 1 and 2. No idea yet how to enter them in-game. Maybe that's only possible in a more complete (full) version of the game. I think attached is the full version. At least partially, since it's now possible to enter a level code. Maybe some of the f...

Re: Nosferatu (1994)

I've reached level 3. In that level, after killing an enemy its head floats away, then later you fight that head. Very difficult fight, didn't win yet... [Edit: It is possible to run past the head and lose only 1HP, but after killing a second guard, the second head follows you and kills you anyway. ...

Re: Nosferatu (1994)

I found another one, German game Runen (1996). http://archive.org//details/Runen-DOS-Shareware-H.J.Baer-1996 Footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLLCUu4L9DI This game is not bad, actually. For sword fighting use + on the numeric keypad to draw the sword, then keep smashing Enter to attack. Pur...

Re: Random off-topic stuff

Apparently, Mechner married Whitney Hills last April. Most likely they're divorced, although they've kept silent about this. You can tell by little things, e.g. Hills writes: "I live [...] with a Siamese cat and a Papillon." And how, on social media, neither of them has linked to anything their ex-...

Re: Forum spam

Most likely humans help such bots ( related ). Assuming the spammers have a finite number of IP addresses, maybe this forum becomes a less interesting target if they see IP addresses are being banned.

Re: PoP videos / images

Bunch more.

Sword fighting is supposedly by "E. Matskevich". Mentioned here and here, among other places.

The (other) black and white drawings are by Kozlik Mozlik a.k.a. Сергей Козлов.

PoP also at about 0:29 in this YT video that is originally by YT user RockyPlanetesimal.
