Everyone's reaction to the expansion is "But I thought I knew how to play this game..."

I had no idea this had been a thing. I guess this explains why you're looking for the unpatched version of the game 😛

I do have a copy of both 98 and XP but not the PC that can run them (hardware compat. issues I guess).  Hubby might be able to cobble something together out of old parts/pcs but not sure it's worth the trouble.  😄
 

And yeah...one game I had a Monk who was always in the right place right time, see an artifact left and stroll over, go "Ahhh!" and siphon them up.  Multiple protection rings and even a teleport one.  He was nigh invulnerable.  :sorcerer:  (edit: observing a teleporting Monk is probably how I noticed it was possible).

Why not just set up a virtual machine and run an emulated windows?

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Mount & Blade 2 is great. Single player wise, it has improved on a ton of stuff from Warband. It looks great, controls well. I kmow it is kind of early access, but it is on sale right now and it was well worth the $30.

Just beat the first seven maps on a little game called Majesty Gold, anyone heard of it? :thumbsup:

Addictive as Hell.  All I really have to say.  No major criticisms.

I like you. You are clearly a gentleman and a scholar.

EDIT: Probably handsome, too.

Back to La Mulana 2. I feel like I'm at least 2/3 of the way through the game, hopefully I can beat it by the first week of November. I'm trying to clear my plate for the BIG NOVEMBER RELEASE. The game everyone has beem clamoring for. The hype train is practically in orbit by now. Obviously, the game I'm referring to is

Does the AI in all total war games cheat?

 

Level 1 Tier 1 units suffer almost no damage against a fully buffed mixed army of level 4+ units

Which Total war game are you talking about? Units and AI vary from game to game, for example in Shogun they quickly rout if you kill the general.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Troy.

Things had been mostly balanced and then one turn AI troops in multiple battles suddenly became super elites.

Not the first time, but when one infantry unit armed with clubs holds off three of my units and nearly routs them in the time my other 17 units take out 4 of his...

Or when the AI melee units cross a third of the screen in the time it takes my archer hero to hit them once...

Something is fishy.

Also in my old files:

Cultists in loincloths
Charming the lasses
Adepts holding contests
To see who is fastest
Berserking monks with their
Feet spurred by wings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Gnomes hi-de-ho-ing
And warm melting mages
Rogues in the library
Who think they are sages
Warriors who run
From a ratman who stings
These are a few of my favorite things.

A group of young Healers armed only with daggers
Discarding peace to see what's the matter
Barbarians meting out Krolms mighty sting
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the goblins come
When the vampires sing
When Yetis smash my town
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so down!


...yeah I really liked this game back then.

Finallly cleared Battletech's SP campaign. Damn AI was aware that Kamea dying was a win condition, but the enemy King Crab overheating all the time was very helpful

You know how in most rpg's you're trying to save the town, planet, or the world, or something? Are there any where you're the evil guy destroying them instead and you have to thwart the goodies? And not in the "your chr. can make Evil path choices".  Like Dungeon Keeper/Evil Genius but more rpg or something.

Well, to fun thing to remember is that there is an Evil Genius 2 coming soon... Even if it isn't the rpg slice.

Though at least in Overlord 1 you were pretty much the good guy in the end.

Yeah, Overlord was fun but not really evil enough.

It's just that these days, every time the "baddie" is introduced in some big/epic rpg game, my thought is always "I want to play/be THEM."

Been saving the world for decades and it's so dull/predictable now. I'm just having a mid-life crisis. :-
