Re: CSB Portrait

I think I downloaded them sometimes to test my truecolor mode. If needed, I'll dig them out. But it's better someone else keeps the copies, because I don't know how long I will keep my domain.

I know.

About 64-bit-code: I still never tried it, but I assume it's possible to restrict pointer sizes to 4 bytes, else a lot of original structures run in troubles.

Re: CSB potential update

When I made my DM/CSB-clones, I enhanced all graphical things to work with truecolor, if an appropriate graphic file is available. I then exploded the graphics.dat-file and converted the graphics to match mask colors. But I could not adjust the graphics caching system, so at a certain point I decide...

Re: Changing the forum software...

If things are going to be really outdated, an ungrade is needed.

That happens when the air over Iceland has high pressure, and over the Azores low. The high pressure zone always turns clockwis...

oh_brother's I played for a little bit too - if it's that one where you played different people with seperate time.
And lurking into Saumun's spoiler, I think he's right.

After all I'm pretty surprised about this wide palette of gametypes that those few people here are used to!

Re: I play new games again

King's saga games are for dead time on trains and at airports. I don't know anyone who plays them 'seriously' ? The girl from our pub tells me she's at level 906 - seriously or addicted? And yes Ameena. You can play them for free, but you can buy boosters that help to finish difficult levels. You c...

I used an App-Player on the PC for the games.

Looking closer (without glasses, so pretty unsharp), it came out that it is such a screen - with heavy movement. And then it was (more and more vanishing) perspectiv...

I think Ameena's is the only one not guessed so far. It looks like a Nintendo game, but in any case I don't recognise it.

I played Defender of the Crown a lot when I was younger. Actually I tried a flash version recently but I kept losing.
