ButButTheJesus: i know that feel Beej
MAPBoardgames: Can we ever go back? Let's find out!
JonnyGlitch: To have a good time overall you just need enough good times
PixelArtDragon: @JonnyGlitch It still has some gameplay mechanics that are better than many contemporary games
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm happy *someone* enjoyed high school. Genuinely.
hesterbyrde: That game for me, weirdly, was FF8. It's the only FF game I ever played until waaaay later.
JonnyGlitch: Yeah it was FREE

F1SHOR: I own all the books I'm so hype for this
DarkMorford: A good soundfont makes a *ton* of difference when it comes to old game music. Even CANYON.MID can sound really good.
JonnyGlitch: There are THREE books in the series, none other exist :kappa:
kumatsu: I have a graphic novel of Magician Apprentice somewhere
kakmize: The Riftwar is the ancient history of his campaign setting

JonnyGlitch: It's a cultural artifact
Kazman20a: really one sec I have to check something
MAPBoardgames: @PixelArtDragon Recursive fanfiction?
wrongwaygoback: Betrayal is one of my favourite RPG games, and yet I still NEVER figured out how to find *that sword*
korvys: Now they just need to sell the sequel, that comes with a free CD drive
Ba_Dum_Tish: Back when day 0 patches didn't happen
PixelArtDragon: @PixelArtDragon Just ascended. Fanfiction that got accepted into canon
JonnyGlitch: I haven't actually read the game related novels
djalternative: @djalternative Yeah. I was fairly popular and had most of that experience while also literally not having enough hours in the day. I was actually factually sleep deprived for 4 years and often didn't get home from things till 11 to 1 most nights
JonnyGlitch: but the continuation of the Riftwar timeline cost a lot of money for the same story 8 times
plummeting_sloth: iceland no longer exists?!
MAPBoardgames: I believe Return to Krondor is a direct sequel to BaK with updated graphics and technology.
ContingentCat: are there other Islandic countries other than Iceland? lrrBEEJ
PixelArtDragon: So they paid Icelandic Krona to maintain it?
TacitusVigil: Can we have more Beej lore from BaatiBeejya in the future please? :)
Arclight_Dynamo: Huh... Return to Krondor was made by a different dev. Sierra made an unofficial sequel to Betrayal at Krondor called Betrayal in Antara.

hd_dabnado: im sorry, Dale Tendick?

Drag0nrun: I remember the huge thing about this game was the "3D" characters.
Arclight_Dynamo: MIDI French horn!
SuperTanookiMario: GG we're already at the credits
electra310: In 1993, did anyone else still have a computer that needed a special cartridge to play CDs? Like you loaded the CD into a box, then put the box in the tower?
DoodlestheGreat: So how long is this game overall?
MrQBear: Man... All I remember now is hoping the first fight went well because it really set a speed for your initial gameplay. > _>
elkae: Dale Tendick, no relation to Johnny Dicklegs?
xantos69: Wow for a game of this era...this had a lot of people on the credit list.
dougma: FYI: yes, that Kim Harris!!!
wrongwaygoback: readying my whetstones now
RuiFaleiro: Think ~65 hours for full game length?

MrQBear: @wrongwaygoback yeah...
inconsideratehat: This feels pretty wholesome so far.
ATrophonian: What a blast from the past...
nevermore913: oh wow its a dos game
DoodlestheGreat: Oh gods, DOS.
dougma: This game and Stone Keep were revolutionary
JonnyGlitch: MIDI is superior for some mediums
Arclight_Dynamo: Speedrun world record, BTW: 2h 51m 42s
Ba_Dum_Tish: Excuse me while I turn to dust. I just thought 93 was 20 years ago
JonnyGlitch: I prefer MIDI here
LightingExpert13: is it in a minor?
dougma: it was fine until...
TheDefiledPrince: @Ba_Dum_Tish cirSlain
Kazman20a: that is funny as all, I have never looked at the back cover of my copy Beej. now I'm afraid to try to get it out of the plastic. never knew it was there
Arclight_Dynamo: Okay, this audio is objectively worse, but I *like* it better, since it sounds like what I remember games sounding like as a kid.
JonnyGlitch: more channels
BrindleBoar: Twiddles and Bits, my favorite cereal. Kappa
JonnyGlitch: I prefer MIDI for the loop alone

JonnyGlitch: @RuiFaleiro shh! I'll curse you if you tell ANYONE
wrongwaygoback: that wig
JonnyGlitch: Oh this was ICONIC
plummeting_sloth: heh, I like the use of apple juice for booze
JonnyGlitch: these cutscenes were SO GOOD
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Pre-FMV. "Some Motion Video." Kappa
MAPBoardgames: FMV (very loosely)
BrindleBoar: momma, just shiv'd an elf
plummeting_sloth: half motion video
Arclight_Dynamo: SX are good level.
Arclight_Dynamo: *SFX
PixelArtDragon: Fun fact, the behind-the-scenes reason for Gorath having a beard was that the artist refused to draw him without a beard even when told it contradicts the lore
JonnyGlitch: Pioneering for giving a sense of massive scale at the time
JonnyGlitch: I'd played some adventure games that used the same premise
JonnyGlitch: not premise, method.
TheBearBee: Why would we go to Krondor? I heard there's going to be Betrayal there.
plummeting_sloth: damn locklear, what product to you use
JonnyGlitch: MATH
Alephred: That's an amazing portrait.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, that's very similar to how a lot of OG roguelikes do levelling.
wrongwaygoback: we should be discussing who has the best in-game wig
Arclight_Dynamo: Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup does levelling exactly like that.
Alephred: Okay, these portraits are all paint-overs of photos, and they're great.
JonnyGlitch: class management as a part of leveling is cool
e_bloc: this is impressive for the time period
DoctorOfBeard: brother of the dark path
saucemaster5000: that is a beard for the ages
JonnyGlitch: Elves are also weird in this world
DoodlestheGreat: Well, cuz...
plummeting_sloth: oop north
TheBearBee: Gorath looks like the other character but with a beard
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Not an elf; just elvish. Kappa
MAPBoardgames: The whole game is just going to be a 450 mi walk down to Krondor. But it's played in real-time hence the 60hr time to beat. Kappa
KakuEpsilon: Wow, this is one of those weird games you'd expect to see on Ross Scott's Game Dungeon.
DoodlestheGreat: @arclight_dynamo, dats fonny, he doesn't LOOK elvish. :tf:
Arclight_Dynamo: Is that durability on the weapons and armour?
drewm1022: She doesn't LOOK Druish.
SandwichKed: I never got past... chapter 4 of this? I always got the sense I was missing something.
MrQBear: Isn't this a game where the rations description change based on who looked at it?
JonnyGlitch: there can also be not as nice rations
JonnyGlitch: so READ before eating`!
DoodlestheGreat: Later, these rations were found and tested by Steve1989 on YouTube...
MAPBoardgames: It won't. But we like watching hope die.
Endrion: Oh man, flashbacks...
JonnyGlitch: @DoodlestheGreat If someone made one you think he'd go for it? Depends if he's a fan of the series

DoodlestheGreat: @JonnyGlitch Who knows? Gotta be better than the MRE omelet.
JonnyGlitch: but this game is perfectly suited to a keyboard
e_bloc: is it randomized or is it the same every playthrough
thunderbird32: Man, I remember seeing ads for this in Sierra's "InterAction" magazine. Remember when Sierra had a magazine?
HundreydAundre: Solid mechanic via compass there
CaptainSpam: This is a Sierra game. Make LOTS of saves, remember.
MAPBoardgames: SESO (Save Early, Save Often)
PixelArtDragon: @e_bloc Everything is the same
DeM0nFiRe: I really dig seeing all the different ways early games tried to do 3d worlds before 3d graphics were really a thing
JonnyGlitch: Fresh Start Save is a necessity

Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, it *is* exactly like the Diablo 1 duplication bug. Neat!
DoodlestheGreat: Oh man, haven't heard of stack hacks in ages.
Ba_Dum_Tish: Oh so we are speedbeejing
JonnyGlitch: It's legit for singleplayer Diablo
JonnyGlitch: Don't eff with code to cheat, if that makes sense
the_canuck_mystic: Why are you doing cheats?
RuiFaleiro: Fill this man with duped items!
e_bloc: "his body technically has four things I can fill up" Corgo150
EvilBadman: never thought I'd see Beej jam a crospe with Loot.
JonnyGlitch: Oh, I actually remember this cheat!
JonnyGlitch: I printed instructions of geocities
PixelArtDragon: The only cheats I ever did was a cracked savefile that give you all the best items at the start
JonnyGlitch: NICE
electra310: Oooh
JonnyGlitch: infinite moooooney
djalternative: two nose holes and two ear holes. that's 4 slots to put things
e_bloc: big cheatz
Arclight_Dynamo: So... why does this work?
IbunWest: The classic Bible story where Jesus turns one potion into 24 potions
saucemaster5000: black magic
SandwichKed: Patches for DOS games. Heh.
MaladyDark: this game needs a remake.
EvilBadman: Legitimate speed run tactics on a LRR stream, no irony
JonnyGlitch: It's finding some way to eff with inventory counters, 23 is one less than 24 which might have been some internal cap
electra310: Do we have a weight limit?
Himyul: looks like it's taking the 23% of the top armor. Maybe the 78% sword would make it faster?
PixelArtDragon: In case anyone's wondering: that potion is a restorative, it's basically a health potion
JonnyGlitch: problem is with these older games, if you did this too much, you could bump up against a hard cap and blow your save
plummeting_sloth: phew, I'm gonna have to plan a bit for a stream this late. Later and good night
Drag0nrun: I remember this game being tough early on. Know about this would have been nice. I might have actually finished the game.
MAPBoardgames: I'm imagining that they are milking the body for fluids to cut their healing potions.
SnackPak_: legitimate cheating
xantos69: If it is in the game then it isn't cheating.
JonnyGlitch: don't give yourself more than 64k or anything
JonnyGlitch: 255 to be safe
Sibwow: so who is krondor and why are we betraying them
red_shoes_jeff: If we're gonna cheat, we're gonna cheat honestly!
Alephred: Betraying Art Krondor.
JonnyGlitch: You've might already have more money than there is in the game! XD
MAPBoardgames: If this were a speedrun, what you are doing right now wouldn't qualify as a 'glitch', therefore you'd still be good for a glitchless run.
JonnyGlitch: Oh yeah this is fine for a glitchless run, it's an exploit
JonnyGlitch: that's very cool
electra310: Owyn, how could you! We hardly have any!
JonnyGlitch: it's an incentive to sell your good stuff
dangerous_safety: don't drink the liquid assets

BrindleBoar: it's not an exploit, it's just supply and demand
suprhero7: very capitalism
tallhobbit97: this sounds like something the spiffing brit would do lmao
JonnyGlitch: Wait this is econ 101
Arclight_Dynamo: "I just go down to Value Village, buy a cheap bow, spruce it up, then flip it." Yeah, this is a Beej game alright. Kappa
thraximore: sounds like a trade skill
JonnyGlitch: your labor is what they're paying for!
thraximore: @JonnyGlitch exactly
Himyul: do you think maybe this is good enough to get started?
SuperTanookiMario: Welcome to Crossbow flippers
JonnyGlitch: it actually makes perfect sense if there's a war nearby
Zhedor: But do the crossbows have the royal guarantee?
PixelArtDragon: This game also has the idea of a "local economy" in that different places have different prices for things, and those prices affect both buying and selling
Sibwow: arbitrage time baby
MAPBoardgames: If Beej was worried about his PiF run, I'd like to point to G's FF7 run complete with chocobo breeding.
thraximore: came in late, is beej duping items?
rain_who_lurks: Yes
MAPBoardgames: yup
thraximore: cool
ghyllnox: Speedrun strats
YeetTheRich_: One could say Krondor is a PERFECTLY balanced game with NO exploits
ghyllnox: One would be wrong
JonnyGlitch: Back in my day we had to WORK for our cheats!
electra310: But do we leave the corpse with some rations and potions for being a good sport?
inconsideratehat: Ahhhh SpliffingBrit
CaptainSpam: Flawless masterpiece!
JonnyGlitch: If you wanna eat, you gotta cheat!
drshellbell: Oh, this is bugging out the All function
dangerous_safety: this corpse just keeps on giving, economists hate him
rain_who_lurks: Capitalism!
Himyul: I don't understand what exploit you guys are talking about. Isn't this how you grocery shop?
MAPBoardgames: Now I'm imagining the characters "filling out" extra rations with what they flnd in the body.
thraximore: corpsucopia
MAPBoardgames: lol
electra310: @Himyul It's amazing what you can do with the Walmart shopping list function
MAPBoardgames: !advice
LRRbot: Call George.
Arclight_Dynamo: "The armour goes in the armour hole."
FateEverywhere: p. don't shove things in my armor hole
CaptainSpam: "After a lengthy shell game against the Pauli Exclusion Principle, the party walked away victorious."
Ba_Dum_Tish: so I interact with this dead body and get rations? I have soo many questions
PixelArtDragon: Right into your armor hole

electra310: booooo
MichaelVYee: 🥁
thraximore: @Himyul sergePun
head_cannon: Might want to save now that all the starting labour is done.
JonnyGlitch: could we bump down the audio on the sub notifier a bit? I have you turned up
Himyul: that mustache tho
chesul: is it just me, or does Owen look like Barney Stinson in a disguise from HIMYM?
CaptainSpam: I have to wonder who at Sierra they dressed up to play the characters.
Ba_Dum_Tish: Is it sad that I kinda want Paul and Adam in to treat this like a dice friends thing
Arclight_Dynamo: "Quiet, peasant. You are now beholden."
RuiFaleiro: He was going to Tosche Station...
MAPBoardgames: I want to go to Tashi Station to pick up some power converters!
thraximore: isn't that the place where betrayal happens?
PharaohBender27: lunarj1Heart
RandomTrivia: lrrHEATHER
RandomTrivia: Release the mouse!
JonnyGlitch: Thank you Heather! lrrDARK lrrDARK lrrDARK
Himyul: lol
rain_who_lurks: Hi Heather
PixelArtDragon: Oh, that's going to be fun!
Arclight_Dynamo: Did we save after duping? Ah, there we go. :D
MAPBoardgames: Heather with the rescue!
dangerous_safety: so save often
JonnyGlitch: oh DOSBOX does the best it can, this is extremely old tech
EvilBadman: cascading save slots are for cowards
thraximore: ah, the Fighting Fantasy style of spell slots
MAPBoardgames: Magic costs HP to cast. I remember that from this game.
Ba_Dum_Tish: So we have MREs
JonnyGlitch: I liked the generosity of the Magic in this game, if that makes sense
head_cannon: It's kind of funny how the game's first objective is "Get to Krondor!" and the player's like "but don't I get Betrayed there?"
thraximore: oh we won't need supplies, mate
dangerous_safety: we don't need no supploes
JonnyGlitch: seeeeecrets
ContingentCat: trees are friends
PixelArtDragon: 3D graphics!
JonnyGlitch: Get TITHED
Arclight_Dynamo: Pixel hunting! Blegh. :D
MAPBoardgames: Aww... but pixel hunting was part of the fun!
JonnyGlitch: Pixel hunting can be so much fun
Mysticman89: tab was a solid way to find clickables in flash games too
CaptainSpam: These were the days when you made a commitment to READ.
Mysticman89: In those days, games were an incentive to learn to read.
PixelArtDragon: The arrow is above the exit
dangerous_safety: reading the backstory explains the backstory
Arclight_Dynamo: What's the arrow in the circle above the Exit button?
MAPBoardgames: what is the gold <-> royal conversion rate?
CaptainSpam: Every single item has a paragraph to go with it. Reading's half the fun!
PixelArtDragon: @MAPBoardgames Decimal
chesul: it just clicked for me why I keep expecting a very wheezy voice to read something. XD my mind keeps misreading it as "Betrayal at Krenkor"
thraximore: how much is a royal?
DarkMorford: Smear it on your weapon, watch it rust to nothingness! Kappa
thraximore: cool
LightingExpert13: reminds me of spice and wolf
PixelArtDragon: In loot, royals and sovereigns stack differently
MAPBoardgames: so s=gold and r=silver, got it.
ContingentCat: oh I thought your s was silver, that's confusing but ok
thraximore: @LightingExpert13 a small whiff to be sure
Arclight_Dynamo: Real fake doors.
LightingExpert13: @LightingExpert13 totally agree
JonnyGlitch: It makes sense that money ain't money everywhere

nevermore913: welcome raiders
JonnyGlitch: you could roll twice more?
Mysticman89: Is it a straight comparison of skill level, or rng?
Lithobraker: Binding on one, click out of two
mishotem: the key is betraying you
CaptainSpam: I think there's RNG involved.
Arclight_Dynamo: And now we sit here and grind it out for an hour.
mugulord: lol
thraximore: @Arclight_Dynamo ah, the good ol' days
dangerous_safety: so the grind begins
mugulord: Judge I have displayed a loop
JonnyGlitch: Games should be a safe space to practice theiving
head_cannon: Reminds me of mashing the "Auto-Attempt" button in the lockpicking minigame in Oblivion.
DarkMorford: GM, can we just take 20?
mugulord: Oh i'm not getting game audio?
thraximore: Please advance the game state or I'll have to give you a warning for slow play
JonnyGlitch: and much like real lockpicking, it takes breaking lockpicks!
CaptainSpam: We're not getting game audio?
MAPBoardgames: There are 500 people watching Beej drag an icon over another.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: We can't hear it break
JonnyGlitch: that chamber must be filled with shards of metal by now
thraximore: @MAPBoardgames what else would I be doing at this hour? sleeping?
RandomTrivia: @MAPBoardgames Content
ky0dar: i can hear it? its very soft?
JonnyGlitch: I can hear it break but only just
CaptainSpam: There it goes!
Alephred: I remember the bad old days of configuring IRQs.
JonnyGlitch: much better!
mugulord: Yah I'm here for it, this is what I cut my teeth on
thraximore: audible now
mugulord: oh there we go
JonnyGlitch: it's a pleasant enough sound too
JonnyGlitch: might annoy my cat tho
Arclight_Dynamo: Yep, I stumbled onto a how-to for the driver thing when Googling around earlier.
JonnyGlitch: the true original hacking
JonnyGlitch: see if you like the newer one before committing to the upgrade
Lithobraker: Wow I'm so glad I grew up in an area when games just worked
PixelArtDragon: Some skills only use your party's best
MAPBoardgames: This week on TTSF, Beej edits config.sys and autoexec.bat files
CaptainSpam: Hey, it's Krondor. Comes with the territory.
Arclight_Dynamo: @Lithobraker Hoho, let me tell you about having to edit AUTOEXEC.BAT to get games to run. :P
Makimachine: I watch Ezekiel_III, were half the fun is spending 8 hours getting old games to run so this is entertaining. :P
mugulord: Lithobreaker: Did you miss the last several dozen triple A game launches?
thraximore: Elder Scrolls has come a long way, hasn't it? Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: Look, we're here to see a game from 1993. The first stream being getting the thing running is authentic.
electra310: No, I feel like I'm getting better at lockpicking by watching
JonnyGlitch: could you save and share it with me? it'll save me some grind
JonnyGlitch: This is just like real lockpicking! you can just do it so much faster!
ImmortalLen: How you level up skills reminds me of the Quest for glory games.
mugulord: oh I may have misunderstood
nevermore913: so no grinding enemies
MAPBoardgames: I recall fighting enemies being a thing to avoid when possible
JonnyGlitch: it'd be cool if it shaped further chapters, like, if you leave some baddies alive and not others
BrindleBoar: gotta kill all the dudes
Lithobraker: @Arclight_Dynamo tbf the mmo I played once nuke people's system32 folder in an update...
Arclight_Dynamo: @Lithobraker Whoof.
JonnyGlitch: better equipment means you'd get more success = more XP hits
PixelArtDragon: Also, if enemies run away, their loot is gone forever
MAPBoardgames: I really liked that aspect of SoM
SuperTanookiMario: this lock pick flash game needs more gameplay LUL
JonnyGlitch: imma gonna bind a macro to do this for me
gkingrat: I think I only got to chapter 4 by playing the game properly. I "beat" it by using the dave save.
ContingentCat: a bit more like real life than one may want from a game
KeytarCat: I left to improve performance while gaming with bro, and I just got in. Why are we breaking lockpicks?
62MGcobra: clink
MAPBoardgames: shhh....
Paranundrox: clink
asthanius: tink
inconsideratehat: Yeah I like the noise TBH
62MGcobra: awe
Paranundrox: aww
thraximore: ASMR lockpicking
thraximore: aw
gkingrat: I got a "free" copy of it from Krondor: The Betrayal which I got from the local library.
KeytarCat: criminy I'm autistic
Paranundrox: yeah!
thraximore: oh nice
62MGcobra: lol
Juliamon: KeytarCat attempting to pick this lock is levelling up our ability to actually do it successfully
RandomTrivia: *lockpicking sounds continue*
Paranundrox: lrrHORN
thraximore: catJAM
Paranundrox: oooh
blip2004: Ding
Paranundrox: new noises
asthanius: DING
niccus: oh my
thraximore: aha!
RandomTrivia: Did we level up?
DarkMorford: DING
LightingExpert13: got it
KeytarCat: @Juliamon Oh, proto elder scrolls LUL
RandomTrivia: FBtouchdown
PixelArtDragon: There is a way to softlock the game in (I think) Chapter 5
Alephred: Fries are done?
thraximore: FBtouchdown
Paranundrox: *glug glug*
dougma: haha that audio
asthanius: clink
niccus: oop back to clinking
JonnyGlitch: And here's Beej's VERY expensive machine that goes BING!
Lithobraker: Is this a rougelike or is it something where you can get soft locked over leveled enemies without a means to grind xp?
Arclight_Dynamo: This is very much not a roguelike.
RandomTrivia: @JonnyGlitch That got me so good LUL
JonnyGlitch: Not a roguelike, but you can get to a fail-state where you can't continue
DarkMorford: This may well pre-date Rogue, actually
PixelArtDragon: @Lithobraker It's relatively hard to get to a state where your only way forward is hard enemies, because you can always turn around and search for easier foes
head_cannon: Beej's story reminded me of a disagreement I had with a friend over Bethesda RPGs, where he tried to convince me that raising his Blade-user to 100% in Blade was a tragedy, since he had to stop using it (since it couldn't level up any more...).
JonnyGlitch: @RandomTrivia Thank you, I was struggling between getting it out on time and wresting with my keyboard
JonnyGlitch: @PixelArtDragon unless too many of them got away
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, wild - the CD edition Beej has that came with the book does NOT have the CD audio included.
Lithobraker: @DarkMorford Wait, was Rogue a game?
PixelArtDragon: @JonnyGlitch There's a spell for that!
Arclight_Dynamo: @Lithobraker Rogue was a game, yes.
Arclight_Dynamo: It is the original of the genre.
JonnyGlitch: @Arclight_Dynamo yeah that would've been a separate CD just for the audio, CDs were only 750mb tops back then
BWardly: Someday people are going to ask if Metroidvania was a game
thraximore: @BWardly you mean today
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford Rogue was 1980. Krondor was 1993.
Lithobraker: @DarkMorford I thought the rogue in rogue like just meant something like the developer went rogue and added permdeath
thraximore: haha no
Arclight_Dynamo: @JonnyGlitch Oh, good point...
JonnyGlitch: @BWardly I'm sure someone, somewhere has named their game that
DarkMorford: @Arclight_Dynamo Ah, okay. I wasn't sure just how old Rogue was, but I figured it was about the same era.
MAPBoardgames: Didn't they play Rogue on TalkingSim a couple years back?
dangerous_safety: metroidvania is that undertale song right Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford Heh, fair. I just, uh, may have a particular interest in old PC games...
KeytarCat: @Lithobraker That's why I call those "run-based"
MAPBoardgames: The interwebs say Rogue came out in 1980
MAPBoardgames: Which sounds right.
PixelArtDragon: Krondor arguably helped kick off the party-based adventure rpg
BrindleBoar: GPU burning up
Lithobraker: So there's people who played Rogue as a tween that are about to hit their 50th birthday...
JonnyGlitch: This game is in the era of... Darklands? for me
Arclight_Dynamo: So are you going to play the two sequels on a future PiF? Only half joking.
BWardly: I tried playing this, but it was too complicated for my 7 year old brain to handle
dangerous_safety: presumably the streaming software is still doing something
MAPBoardgames: Hot under LEDs? I thought you would go true oldschool and replace all your bulbs with incandecents.
JonnyGlitch: Yeah Melbourne was the 'hacking' Capital of the world for a hot minute, all sorts of chips
JonnyGlitch: (Melbourne Australia, IDK if there's one in Canadia)
Arclight_Dynamo: Seanix appears to be based out of Richmond, and may or may not still exist.
MAPBoardgames: The highest fidelity blips and bloops
DarkMorford: @LoadingReadyRun Have you tried the "Arachno" soundfont at all? It's one of my favorites for old DOS games. http://www.arachnosoft.com/main/soundfont.php
JonnyGlitch: I'd laugh so hard if it was Heather playing the game right now and Beej is just jamming
SeiichiSin: Lockpick training?
thraximore: For a guy named Locklear, he sure doesn't seem to understand the concept of a lock
inconsideratehat: lrrHORN
thraximore: Spoke too soon
asthanius: Gottem
JonnyGlitch: what chipset are we talking again?
DeM0nFiRe: 1,257th time's the charm
CaptainSpam: lrrGOAT
electra310: Yay!
dangerous_safety: "the lock was simple"
Lithobraker: But 64 is a bigger number...
JonnyGlitch: oh yeah I had a Gravis
Kipstar: "The lock was simple" he says three hours later
DarkMorford: PCI graphics cards! :D
JonnyGlitch: no not Graphis, did Epic Megagames do a sound card?
djalternative: back in The Day™
Arclight_Dynamo: "Myst doesn't need a Voodoo."
SuperTanookiMario: Give me back EAX effects
head_cannon: I love how it's like he's been at this for hours, and as soon as it finally works he's like "First try!"
YurikosWife: oh god voodoo cards
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, man, .mod files!
JonnyGlitch: I didn't have a Voodoo, but I wanted their GFX card
PixelArtDragon: "any smaller and you can fit them on a floppy disk" is such a 90's thing
JonnyGlitch: The era of computer tech was also very hidden from most of my peers, becasue it was an expensive endevour in the 90s
Arclight_Dynamo: Also, these days, it's often "Huh, it won't do the thing. Throw and extra bunch of computing at it" rather than getting clever and interesting to work around limited hardware.
PharaohBender27: I once read the reminiscences of someone who drove people up to and down from Mt. Hood in Oregon in the 1910s, and let me tell you, you pretty much had to be a mechanic's knowledge to drive in those days
JonnyGlitch: Combine Synth with Vocals
JonnyGlitch: it deserves beautiful singing voices
PharaohBender27: *had to have
ContingentCat: wow almost doubled
JonnyGlitch: That's a fair grind
JonnyGlitch: you leveled up heaps
MAPBoardgames: I wonder what the difficulty of that lock was? 50%? Naah.
JonnyGlitch: this is a lockpicking minigame in a sense
thraximore: hahaha
Arclight_Dynamo: It's no longer theft!
JuniorRoll: timing
BrindleBoar: solid work ethic, there
JonnyGlitch: knock again!
electra310: The pouch is evil!
ContingentCat: relatablr
MAPBoardgames: Honestly, I don't think you lost anything by not having a minigame.
thraximore: it's "recycling", chat
DarkMorford: Beej, have you tried the "Arachno" soundfont at all? It's one of my favorites for old DOS games. Even makes CANYON.MID sound good. :p http://www.arachnosoft.com/main/soundfont.php
nevermore913: mechanically was this game ahead of it's time?
JonnyGlitch: @nevermore913 absolutely, cutting edge. It was years until I had a PC that could even boot it
Arclight_Dynamo: This came out a year BEFORE the first Elder Scrolls game. So there's your context.
dangerous_safety: so Loriel isn't worth it? Kappa
PixelArtDragon: It definitely did what it wanted very well
gkingrat: There is a really good write up about it by the Digital Antiquarian.
JonnyGlitch: there are a series of adventure games that came later that use this map and 3D system
JonnyGlitch: I don't remember the names
DarkMorford: @dangerous_safety sergePun sergePun sergePun
Arclight_Dynamo: Like, a lot of these games of the era were grid-based, like Grimrock. This level of movement freedom was huge.
gkingrat: The write up can be found here: https://www.filfre.net/2019/10/betrayal-at-krondor/
10 raiders from Foxmar320 have joined!

ContingentCat: Welcome Foxmar and raiders!
Arclight_Dynamo: @gkingrat Oh, yo, The Digital Antiquarian is GREAT.
Genie_M: it had great ideas, varied execution, and i loved it back then - and it made me read all the Riftwar books :)
MAPBoardgames: Also released this year: Doom, Myst, 7th Guest, Secret of Mana, Day of the Tentacle, Starfox.
thraximore: @MAPBoardgames dang. sounds like a good year
MAPBoardgames: X-wing
Arclight_Dynamo: Is this DRM?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, nope.
JonnyGlitch: if you play peek-a-boo with enemies you level stealth, just like Skyrim
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, raiders!
TacitusVigil: Try mellon. Kappa

JonnyGlitch: GAMEPLAY
thraximore: the german word for "the", clearly
TacitusVigil: No no no, it's German for "the"
electra310: Guess I'll die!
Zyme86: 1:1 replacement cypher
Arclight_Dynamo: GASP! That means I can translate the runes to the Galactic Standard Alphabet! Kappa
JonnyGlitch: every good adventure game comes with a hint book
ContingentCat: but if you learn the alphabet you can be super cool and have a secret code language to use elsewhere
JonnyGlitch: cos Adventure games become a lot less fun if you get stuck
Mysticman89: hint books were the original microtransaction
thraximore: nice sword
62MGcobra: nice sword
DainBread: @JonnyGlitch Hint book yes, but not all of them go "here's the literal cheat sheet, ya numpty." :)
JonnyGlitch: @Mysticman89 true, but it was more a secondary market
JonnyGlitch: @DainBread you keep the numpty codes on the very last pages, for the numpties
PixelArtDragon: We're an hour and a half into the stream and we haven't even gotten to the first combat
DainBread: Hahaha :D
Makimachine: Not even Skyrim does that! LUL
thraximore: @PixelArtDragon didn't he fight an assassin?
Mysticman89: I memorised the copy protection solutions for a handful of games, but never did hint books
thraximore: oh they were dead already
MAPBoardgames: @JonnyGlitch I always photocopied the numpty code pages so I could leave the manual on the shelf.
DainBread: Aw man, I remember when this game was *so* beautiful... ahhh, thems the days.
Arclight_Dynamo: These people all look so sleazy. :D
TacitusVigil: "I had chests on the brain" argh
MAPBoardgames: A lot of guys have chests on the brain at parties.
MAPBoardgames: Has everyone done their summer reading?
TacitusVigil: Tetralogy?
JonnyGlitch: I like the term "Quartet"
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames No, because it's still spring Kappa
JonnyGlitch: but Quadrilogy works well too, or a four some
MaladyDark: Jenny Wurts
JonnyGlitch: Jenny or Janny?
kumatsu: Yeah the Empire Trilogy felt a lot more interesting
JonnyGlitch: It's Janny
MaladyDark: janny I think? stupid phone auto correct
JonnyGlitch: A great series, I love Janny Wurts other series too
dangerous_safety: how timely
JonnyGlitch: The Cycle of Fire Trilogy is close to my heart
DainBread: "Probably"
JonnyGlitch: New Book Trilogy+
TacitusVigil: I blame the Hitchhiker's Guide for that.
JonnyGlitch: Trilogy+1
BrindleBoar: it's not STEALING, it's LOOTING
MAPBoardgames: Buncha thieves around here
JonnyGlitch: @BrindleBoar Looting will get you probably more dead than just stealing
BrindleBoar: totally different, very horoic
TacitusVigil: Thank goodness all these fantasy worlds have magnetic poles.
BrindleBoar: *heroic
JonnyGlitch: horroic? yes.
cantthinkofausername124: im showing up a bit late, whats the book series brought up?
Arclight_Dynamo: We have the conch!
PixelArtDragon: How much advice should we be giving?
TacitusVigil: What are all those vials of Ketracel-White?
JonnyGlitch: shiny things!
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil Beej did a dupe cheat on his potions earlier.

Arclight_Dynamo: Doing some reading, the CD audio should allow for voices. It's Waveform MIDI that is mutually exclusive with SFX.
PixelArtDragon: I don't remember if I got those voices, granted it's been over a decade since I played it with the copy my family had
MAPBoardgames: Open the door. Wait for the CD to spin up. "Ahhh! Fresh Meat!" The Butcher zips out of the room and slays you in an instant.

TacitusVigil: In my head canon, they're a band
Arclight_Dynamo: Listening and thinking "...I could do better" learns ya.
RandomTrivia: LUL
ArdentSlacker: Oh, dang. My childhood!
PixelArtDragon: "I now know what NOT to do!"
CaptainSpam: I've always sort of disliked games where you're told the price of something and given a yes/no answer, and "no" always implicitly means "I refuse to pay that because the cost insults me", never "I can't afford that" or "maybe next time".
thraximore: Secondhand embarrassment learns ya
MAPBoardgames: I know nothing about it but you've taught me what terrible can be.
HundreydAundre: What's a drax?
AegeusEvander: this map reminds me of final fantasy tactics

kumatsu: huh, Crydee isn't on this map. I guess it was a smaller outlying keep so that makes sense
gkingrat: If I recall Crydee is far on the other side of the mountains.
Drakas: hello
dangerous_safety: save early save often
JonnyGlitch: Could you post that save file to the Discord? XD
JonnyGlitch: See you soon! Enjoy your break! Hug Heather good from us!
DoodlestheGreat: Time to rotate the fluids, folks!
dangerous_safety: get up and move about
Drakas: @DoodlestheGreat i, um, sure
kumatsu: OK I went and found a more in-depth map of the world, Crydee is much further up the western coast than the map shows anything on
Drakas: fluid the rotates
hexy_lexy: hey LRR friends! how goes Beej-trayal at Krondor? :P
PixelArtDragon: Considering what people might expect from "game from 1993" I think the graphics hold up surprisingly well

hexy_lexy: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
red_shoes_jeff: Evening chatt.
Juliamon: We're on break right now but we'll be right back!
KeytarCat: Heya, Chatt!
kumatsu: How went MGS Cutscene?
hexy_lexy: @kumatsu very anime. me liked
Juliamon: They finished the Leon campaign
Juliamon: wait I'm tired
Juliamon: please ignore me
kumatsu: @Juliamon What if I send LuvHearts instead?
Izandai: @kumatsu Very cutscene.
Juliamon: Hearts is fine too
kumatsu: I haven't played that game since college but in my head it's 80% cutscene
hexy_lexy: @Juliamon what if i sent you my eternal appreciation for your hard work as our lovely mod?
Arclight_Dynamo: I mean, describing RE:^ as "MGS cutscene" does kinda work...
p_johnston: I believe they stream was no more then 50% cutscene. So not to bad.
Arclight_Dynamo: *RE:6, even
BusTed: Hello!
BrindleBoar: bonjour
ContingentCat: yup hello Beej
BusTed: What is the story thus far?
Juliamon: They did watch a lot of cutscene
Izandai: @kumatsu According to HowLongToBeat it is fully 40% cutscene.
Juliamon: that didn't make a heck of a lot of sense
dangerous_safety: can confirm audio is audible
PharaohBender27: @kumatsu Given what I've seen from the previous PiF, I can believe that :p
ContingentCat: he's a dude totally not wearing a wig
saucemaster5000: He kinda looks like ron burgundy
BrindleBoar: a dude with an unfortunate haircut and a legendary moustache Kappa
thraximore: @saucemaster5000 a little

MAPBoardgames: Would top-right be better for the Beej cam?
JonnyGlitch: Hey @Juliamon ! Welcome Raiders!
kumatsu: oh okay, now that I can direct compare
PixelArtDragon: @BrindleBoar The unfortunate haircut is deliberate, it comes up in conversations
sivakrytos: you definitely seem to be able to just walk through trees tho
electra310: RE6 had a lot of cutscene, but after watching Paul finish Death Stranding, it did not even compare. :D
kumatsu: Crydee is multiple maap-lengths off to the Northwest of the game map
JonnyGlitch: Heather I hope Beej hugged you good!
Spacepup: The Mara of the #
Arclight_Dynamo: Hm. Raymond E. Feist is credited for writing on the game. I wonder if that's a real credit, or a courtesy/contract credit.
PixelArtDragon: @Arclight_Dynamo It's definitely curtesy, the story wasn't written by him
p_johnston: I kinda hope its a real credit. I remember Feist being a good author.
p_johnston: darn.
thraximore: huh
Spacepup: The Mara of the Acoma side series was better than Fiest's main line books. send tweet.
TacitusVigil: Welcome to my life
jibkat: Mace him!
PixelArtDragon: He later wrote the story into a book though
JonnyGlitch: From what I recall he worked closely with the team, if not wrote himself. Feist is generous with his IP, as we can see with Janny
BrindleBoar: Pocket sand!
JonnyGlitch: is the accuracy down?
saucemaster5000: that poor man
JonnyGlitch: It's a corpse in a copse
MAPBoardgames: Find out what this guy has in his chest.
jibkat: Everyone be ROYALS
JonnyGlitch: a convenient locale
Arclight_Dynamo: The manual says the scales button in the combat screen is "Assess Opponents."
ContingentCat: Owen's picture reminds me of Joseph Gorden-Levitt in his 3rd Rock From the Sun time
jibkat: So ignore them and hope for the best?
MAPBoardgames: The sweet, sweet, sound of leveling up!
thraximore: when do you not want to have abilities active?
JonnyGlitch: I know the feeling of having a hemmed in shaft
JonnyGlitch: it sucks
thraximore: gnomes 100
MAPBoardgames: Fun fact: The metal is named for the monster, not the other way around.
PixelArtDragon: The Brak Nurr isn't that difficult of a fight
Arclight_Dynamo: The game credits have a "Spider/Scorpion Wrangler." This position is credited to "Cowboy Mike." Wat.
dangerous_safety: wut
RandomTrivia: @Arclight_Dynamo As long as they did a better job than Phil Tippett :D

Tripleyew: @RandomTrivia damnit Phil, you had one job...
JonnyGlitch: go left
PixelArtDragon: Pits, because every game is better with instadeath...
thraximore: is the bookmark essentially a quicksave?
PixelArtDragon: Four hours later...
MAPBoardgames: didja want to un-flag defense and combat skills?
JonnyGlitch: time to dupe some rope!
JonnyGlitch: you put rope in the body, and rope comes out!
JonnyGlitch: can you imagine what desperate soldiers have used for rope
dangerous_safety: can we dupe the key?
JonnyGlitch: @dangerous_safety I'm not sure but I think you need at least 2?
PixelArtDragon: There are different graphics for different lock types
dangerous_safety: ah
couldntpickausername: if you ever play ultima underworld I know a couple cheats for that game
JonnyGlitch: Training lockpick is costless though
red_shoes_jeff: I wonder what Jimmy's up to...?
Arclight_Dynamo: Krondor definitely comes out of the Western text-based RPG tradition. Temple of Apshai and all that. Ration systems are much more prevalent there.
rain_who_lurks: Save
electra310: Wolfenstein intensifies
MAPBoardgames: My DnD parties at 1st level have to worry about food and water. Once they get to 5th or 7th it doesn't come up.
Arclight_Dynamo: I am going to ask a question, and you are going to laugh at me. Does the game automap gungeons?
Arclight_Dynamo: *dungeons
JonnyGlitch: World
thraximore: Weald?
RuiFaleiro: Booty?
JonnyGlitch: I fell for the obvious trap!
red_shoes_jeff: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! The old man is enraged by your pleasantries.
JonnyGlitch: Badonkadonk
RandomTrivia: I don't think that will quite fit in the box
PMAvers: SHAVE: This chest brought to you by Burma, and there's a razor inside.
JonnyGlitch: Is it that name for the world? Like Toril?
Tiber727: Shell?
InArmourClad: Sieve?
RvLeshrac: I wasn't here earlier, but it *sounds* like the digital audio is missing, and the game is using MIDI for the SFX. So just a note, if you want to use MIDI output and *also* get digital audio, there's a patch to deal with that.
saucemaster5000: world?
electra310: Sieve would be good
JonnyGlitch: @InArmourClad points at nose then at you
MaladyDark: oooh sieve ain't a bad giess
PixelArtDragon: At least it pops open when you get it right, so you don't have to keep clicking "check" or something
RandomTrivia: Sieve might be a good shout
thraximore: doesn't work @saucemaster5000
MaelstronSolenor: heart?
thraximore: @RandomTrivia oh that's a good one
jamesthedabbler: I think sieve is right
JonnyGlitch: good riddle!
RandomTrivia: @InArmourClad Nice one
RandomTrivia: Wasn't me
thraximore: very nice @RandomTrivia
electra310: Nice, @InArmourClad !
RandomTrivia: [wasn't me]
thraximore: ah well done @InArmourClad
hexy_lexy: @InArmourClad nice guess!!!
MAPBoardgames: !box

PixelArtDragon: Maybe you shouldn't have duped so many items lrrBEEJ
thraximore: weeeeeee
PixelArtDragon: The journal?
MAPBoardgames: The amount of saving in games like this is Staggering.
dangerous_safety: can never be too safe
JonnyGlitch: off by 1!
ButButTheJesus: ok folks i gotta bed, thanks for comfy adventure lrrHEART
JonnyGlitch: night night @ButButTheJesus
hexy_lexy: take care @ButButTheJesus
MAPBoardgames: Go for the eyes, Boo!
Nowherebloom: Good morning from Europe! So happy I caught this live! BibleThump <3 BibleThump
Arclight_Dynamo: Apparently if you press G you can see the combat grid.
JonnyGlitch: or just hit "play" when combat starts
MAPBoardgames: The wizard suddenly couldn't take it anymore and needed to wack someone.
JonnyGlitch: It's an ablative sharpener
MAPBoardgames: Is "polish some weapons" a euphemism?
MAPBoardgames: Is the nearly destroyed armor worth carrying?
JonnyGlitch: you could fit another sword but you don't really need it
PixelArtDragon: @MAPBoardgames If it was, i don't think it could be shown on stream
RvLeshrac: To get CD Audio, you can just mount the disc or a disc image in DOSBox (as a cdrom)
chaostreader: Drop a weak armor for a stronger one?
RvLeshrac: There's fancy nonsense that you can do to mount a directory full of audio files, which is what GOG does.
PixelArtDragon: The game interestingly has different maximum stacks for different items
JonnyGlitch: the better you get, the better you get at getting better
JonnyGlitch: say that 6 times fast
Arclight_Dynamo: Aw yeah, that's some Sierra nonsense right there.
MAPBoardgames: *bonk*
Arclight_Dynamo: Is it worth waiting around until the inn opens?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, neat!
hexy_lexy: if nothing else, it wouldnt hurt to stop on... INN :p
niccus: tith piss
couldntpickausername: my brain heard something other than tith
hexy_lexy: i 100% heard "tit piss"
couldntpickausername: I heard tits
JonnyGlitch: Tith's Piss is just pure amphetamine
Arclight_Dynamo: Do merchants have unlimited funds to buy with?
PixelArtDragon: Yes
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, well that's handy.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ChrisLewisRose! (Today's storm count: 112)
Arclight_Dynamo: On this stream, we use *every* part of the bandit.
KeytarCat: @Arclight_Dynamo Were you here when we used every piece of the wobbledog?
Arclight_Dynamo: @KeytarCat Ha! No, I need to catch that VOD. :D
EldarLuin: Oh this is old school....
dougma: so... this is just an early tarkov Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: Two dudes.
KeytarCat: @dougma The dark souls of tarkov meets skyrim!
ChrisLewisRose: @EldarLuin I was just thinking how much this would have blown my mind to play at release. First game even like this i recall is morrowind. I sucked at that game but even the starting area blew my mind
Arclight_Dynamo: @ChrisLewisRose This actually came out a full year before the first Elder Scrolls game.
EldarLuin: @ChrisLewisRose Don't get me wrong, I'm from this time too. Doesn't mean that I think it's bad. I'm with G and his love for C64, so these graphics were ground breaking when they happened.
JonnyGlitch: He's onto you!
JonnyGlitch: The AI has become sentient! Skynet is real!
ChrisLewisRose: @Arclight_Dynamo crazy, this looks more user friendly than the original scrolls games
ChrisLewisRose: *note to millenials: thats not sarcasam
JonnyGlitch: @ChrisLewisRose Oh it's lightyears ahead of Daggerfall
CaptainSpam: Yes, the icon is the same.
MAPBoardgames: Didja want to swap your broken old armor for the less-broken armor these guys have?
EldarLuin: There are retro games and games that want to look like retro, and you can always tell which is which.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, man, 53% armour is better than the 18% we have.
JonnyGlitch: @EldarLuin though this game is of such good quality you'd be forgiven for thinking it's new
EldarLuin: We've made it to Myst!
JonnyGlitch: The UI is one of the many stellar points of this game
EldarLuin: Nah, having lived through it, I can tell it's not new. ;)
ChrisLewisRose: @EldarLuin yeah i just kinda missed this type of PC rpg. I had a sinclair spectrum *pops collar* +2. Which was the one with BUILT IN tape deck and mechanical keyboard. then later had a pc. But as I said the first pc rpg i remember is elder scrolls 3
JonnyGlitch: @EldarLuin Same! I should've said "someone"
DarkMorford: I kinda want to see Faerie Mound of Dragonkind (and those other books) implemented in this sort of engine. :p
Arclight_Dynamo: @ChrisLewisRose This is honestly making me want to go back and play some *really* old-school RPGs, for like the TRS-80.
EldarLuin: @ChrisLewisRose I remember bragging to people at school that I had a Gig HD. ;)
DarkMorford: @EldarLuin My first PC had a whopping 200 MB hard drive :D
JonnyGlitch: We had a c64, 286, 486, and Pentium, it was an era
JonnyGlitch: I used to dismantle the old PCs
EldarLuin: We went from C64 to Pentium. I didn't have a console growing up...
JonnyGlitch: the HDD magnets were AWESOME but TOXIC
PixelArtDragon: Fast travel!
JonnyGlitch: I had a Master System 2, never had nintendo
DarkMorford: Though before that PC I had a Coleco ADAM and a C128DCR.
MAPBoardgames: Some kind of fast, traveling?
ChrisLewisRose: @EldarLuin heh, I was trying to explain to a friend of mine in their 20's that a 3.5" floppy had approx 1.4mb memory. And putting in context that that's about half an MP3 of a song. I recall the even bigger floppies from school but never had a home system that took them
JonnyGlitch: except for the NES at my cousin's place
saucemaster5000: I remember our upgrade from an EGA graphics computer to VGA. blew my mind
JonnyGlitch: Pug LIFE!
JonnyGlitch: Pug is MAH BOI!
JonnyGlitch: I just wanna read books about PUG
EldarLuin: Remember having Zip Drives? Ground breaking data storage!
Arclight_Dynamo: "Uh, I'd like to report a typo."
TacitusVigil: Hello I am regret. I am Error.
ContingentCat: I'm going to imagine him as a dog because a wizard pug sounds great
JonnyGlitch: Zip drives were funny because all the people who bought them were the people who didn't need nor could afford the tech
RvLeshrac: I mean, the game was patched to allow digital audio and MIDI simultaneously, fixing a typo isn't out of the question :p
JonnyGlitch: it was crazy going to my neighbors place which looked like a bomb hit it, and they had massive movie collections
MAPBoardgames: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: the office sweatband
EldarLuin: I had one for school. I was part of a special team in my HS to work on graphics for a CD project. I don't think I was allowed to keep it. ^^
DarkMorford: @EldarLuin Pssh, zip drive. I had one of these suckers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlewood_Orb_Drive
MAPBoardgames: fog?
red_shoes_jeff: Fog?
ChrisLewisRose: never had a zip drive but remember having an mp3 player that was about the size of a discmanm wanna say it had about 500mb storage and that was a combination harddrive too so could put full games you'd downloaded on there OVER DIAL UP to a friends house
Arclight_Dynamo: EEL Kappa
Sethalidos: fog
EldarLuin: Egg
CaptainSpam: We had a Zip Drive on one of my old PCs. Was great, really; gave me a lot of external storage in an age before CD-Rs and flash drives became commonplace.
Juliamon: Foggers
Arclight_Dynamo: Yeah, we had a Zip drivel Dad needed it for work. He did databases for CRA.
PixelArtDragon: Locklearpicks
hexy_lexy: oh foggifers my doggifers :p
RvLeshrac: @Juliamon ironmouseSATANAS
PixelArtDragon: My family has a Zip drive that I don't remember ever seen being used
JonnyGlitch: What is out here? Whats out there is the XPerience of the Great Outdoors!
ChrisLewisRose: @CaptainSpam Just had a regressed flash of anger at my FUNKING CD writer and it's arbitrarily decided to throw a CDRW outta its housing about 98% of the way into copying a game.
JonnyGlitch: @PixelArtDragon it was mainly for business archival and bootleg movies
JonnyGlitch: Combining a ZIP drive with a CDRW was a really expensive way to make a little money selling bootlegs
DarkMorford: @CaptainSpam Oh man, now I'm remembering the *really* old CD-ROM drives where you had to put the disc in a caddy instead of using a tray.
PixelArtDragon: @JonnyGlitch It probably was for my dad's business backups
MAPBoardgames: We going into PiF overtime!
JonnyGlitch: @DarkMorford oh like a cassette cartridge for the CD? never used that method
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford I remember seeing those, but I never used one.
JonnyGlitch: We gotta make it to Krondor! We're late for a Betrayal!
RandomTrivia: Eh, the betrayal can wait for us
EldarLuin: I never used tape for my C64 either... we only ever had floppies
chaostreader: Travel by map!
Arclight_Dynamo: I've only messed with *emulated* tape, which is a strange but real thing.
JonnyGlitch: But what if WE'RE the Betrayer? You know what they say! Never be late to your own Betraying!
ChrisLewisRose: aw man, know what was amazing about tapes? Popping one in and knowing it was like 20 minuites until the game would be loaded. As a tiny kid that was an ETERNITY
EldarLuin: Quick! Cue up the Indie music for map travel!
D3rgon: oh man i remeber this game ...
KeytarCat: stealth hasn't risen
JonnyGlitch: I'm hooked, looking forward to binging this on Youtube
JonnyGlitch: for those shows I miss
EldarLuin: He'll be ready to tag in any time
PixelArtDragon: I think the spell has two effects- one that causes them to skip a turn, and one that reduces accuracy. The reduced accuracy lasts at least a few turns
CaptainSpam: Oh, hey, I actually do remember that strategy.
RandomTrivia: Game design! \o/
JonnyGlitch: So many options the Devs have provided us with to allow us to select our own difficulty!
KeytarCat: @JonnyGlitch I really like that method!
MAPBoardgames: There are many games where you get free in-combat healing but outside combat it requires resoreces.
ChrisLewisRose: right im off, logged on to watch the spoop bois replay but will definitly watch the vod for this, legit considering downloading the game if its as user friendly/non user unfriendly as it looks
KeytarCat: @MAPBoardgames Final Fantasy's Pray is dear to my heart
JonnyGlitch: well before the era of patches, if it's a bug that breaks something, break it to the players benefit
EldarLuin: I was doing a panel a few years ago on the topic of ReBoot and we were talking about the games that were shown in the show. There was a kid who commented on how the user never used the different difficulty settings on the game. I told him, because that was never a thing.
rain_who_lurks: Swap armor
MAPBoardgames: @KeytarCat I was thinking of the Heal helm and Heal staff from FF1.
PixelArtDragon: It's interesting that they have racial modifiers for weapons when you only ever get one non-human, because I think the enemies use the exact same combat ruleset as you.
KeytarCat: @MAPBoardgames I started with FFX, where pray was the first free heal I got
JonnyGlitch: once chastity fell out of fashion they found a new use for them
red_shoes_jeff: He SAID no questions, Locklear.
MAPBoardgames: Free skill? okay!
Arclight_Dynamo: If you click no, do you kill him?
Arclight_Dynamo: I bet.
D3rgon: but is it gone?
rain_who_lurks: Nope
PixelArtDragon: Worst comes to worst you don't get as much of a skill boost
MAPBoardgames: I bet you don't get a chance to go back.
saucemaster5000: On the plus side if you kill the begging man you're a hero
D3rgon: just take it and leave it:)
EldarLuin: *level up sounds*
JonnyGlitch: 100% increase to 10%!
D3rgon: i remeber playing for cash
JonnyGlitch: I think that was a flat 5% increase across the board
CaptainKranok: Gods, these names sound so familiar but so distant... do I dare read through Magician again from the start?
dangerous_safety: owyn got a little further into freebird this time
Arclight_Dynamo: Assessment is probably for the Assess button on the combat screen.
PixelArtDragon: @CaptainKranok I should definitely get myself a copy of Magician, it's been a while since I've read it
RandomTrivia: Wow. Rekt.
red_shoes_jeff: Damn.
