Gooda 14 Oct

Quoting: whizseBut it does! It's supported in ResidualVM.
Quoting: whizseThere's also this HD mod made for ResidualVM.
Well, that's fantastic! I didn't know that!

Finally, I have the perfect excuse to play it again. I've been thinking about revisiting it for years but could never find the time.

Now, I order myself to find the time!

Been playing Spiritfarer. I like the aesthetics, but to me it is a game of chores. There's hardly a moment of peace or quiet, as the more or less annoying temporary residents of my boat demand to be fed, and they are a picky lot. They also need their own (often not so) humble abode with matching interior and plenty attention besides. In the precious few moments when there aren't any plants to water, fruits to pick or sheep to shear, a number of incredibly simple but time consuming mini games await to turn all those basic resources into the more refined materials required to satisfy above guests.

And yet, when it finally comes to say goodbye (and good riddance!) to any of them, there's a certain melancholy that sets in. I actually found myself wondering if the game is telling me something about my attitude towards other people, and my unwillingness to give up some of my own free time to their benefit. Maybe I should stop playing Spiritfarer and allot the time won by that to friends and family instead. Might be a better use for it after all :-).

Playing a bit of XCOM 2 here and there, trying to beat the game on normal difficulty without save scumming... too much Still learning new things, the most recent being that you can in fact control your characters’ path instead of relying on the pathfinding. Also making much better use of my snipers, which I completely gave up on during my first playthrough. Such an addictive game.

Surprisingly deep and sombre thoughts tucked away in this thread. I love it!

I'm currently playing the original Costume Quest, 'cause 'ween times are a coming. I wish I had some reflections to share, but the game have mostly just inspired me to bake pumpkin pies...

Quoting: omicron-bWow, thanks a lot! Will definitely try it, the game has an annoying bug on Windows.
There's also this HD mod made for ResidualVM.
Thanks for this mod, game looks great now!
By any chance, did you have an issue with mod's large font not being correctly displayed, some words are partly replaced with dots?
Everywhere in menu (that's nothing), but sometimes also in subtitles:

Spoiler, click me

No, that's odd, don't recall having that problem.

There's a workaround here, if you build from source: https://github.com/residualvm/residualvm/issues/1702

I guess with the merge to ScummVM the whole project is in a state of flux.

Finally finished wiring my living room for Cat5 and hooked up my steam link so the kids can play games in the living room.

Only game we have that's kid friendly and controller friendly and steam friendly.... Race The Sun.

It's actually pretty fun.

I also have Slim Rancher, but last time t tried that, it caused my CPU to run extremely hot. Like hot to the touch. Weird. Hopefully I can figure out out before they learn to read this year
