Old Time LucasArt

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 3.5K users

The thread dedicated to all those patrons of the pont and click games of the old time LucasArt (before they became completely focused on Star Wars). A general discussion on characters, stories and humor of the old time games like monkey isalnd, DOTT, sam & max and Grim Fandango (3-D but still a point and click game). So take a walk down memory lane and remember the good old days.

    This is the best they've done so far and I wouldn't hold my breath for anything better.

    The only other adventure games they have available right now are MI 3&4 and Grim Fandango, all available separately. A DVD with all the oldies and some extras (or at least a scummVMesque emulator to the things) would be awesome though.

    They made some other game compilations a while back that you could probably find on Ebay.

    Good call.

    I just pointed out it's not. What's the big deal?[/quote]


    Grim Fandango is point and click - except you point with Manny & Click with the spacebar.

    So, free fries all round...

    It probably would have helped if you had included that quote with your post the first time. As it is, after twenty-something posts, it's not easy to guess at what a person is referring to, and that's even if we think they're they're TRYING to refer to something previous. Your post just looked like it came out of nowhere to state the obvious. But now I see that it wasn't exactly like that.

    What is the problem -works like a charm for me! Do you have version 0.63? That is the newest. Also - I found for my graphics card that I have to play it in a window - not full screen. Once I did that I never had another Dosbox problem (I have WinXP Home - 2.8 GHz - GeForce 64MB). I can play everything from Kings Quest 1 to Space Quest 5 to X-wing (shudder).

    Has anyone ever tried to and/or played Bioforge with DOSBOX? If so, any luck?

    to be honest i never heard about that game.
    the official dosbox site says that it is playable & suported
    And i highly recomend the D-Fend front end.
