  1. Unfortunately I cannot afford allowing to much space to something like WINE...
  2. I'm reading the Wool trilogy; just at the beginning for now, the first chapters offer very clever surprises about how you can manipulate your neighbour even to their own death...
  3. You can't, you'll have to trust Jeff on that... :)
  4. Did you read the recent translation in English of Solaris dating back to 2011? For some reason I cannot find it. I'm currently reading I, Robot by Isaac Asimov, more interesting than I had imagined. I like the way Asimov describes the situations, quite blankly, and how he focuses on the danger robots represent, although he doesn't much emphasizes too heavily on it. :)
  5. I'm currently reading The War of the Worlds. That's about it because I cannot find enough time to read more.
  6. Is there any way to convince Jeff so that he ports his games to Linux, at least Ubuntu and the versions that are based on it?
  7. Well, WINE is huge for once and I don't need it, I would only use it for my Windows games and most of them would not work fine under it. So...
  8. I'm sorry guys but I'm using Linux now and I don't like WINE. Anyway, I tried playing Exile with WINE and the result was not good. The only game made by Spiderweb that has a Linux version is Avadon: The Black Fortress. I still have Windows installed but it's rather boring to have to switch from one os the other. If only anyone could make a Linux version of Exile, Avernum and all the other games... sigh
  9. No resolutions at all; nobody follows them anyway.
  10. Well, I'm afraid the gameplay is suspended right now, for various reasons. I'll get back to it one day or another.
  11. Didn't you get keys when you bought them? Didn't you save them?
  12. Nothing I guess; they are still resting until the Exile party has caught up with them.
  13. I'm still playing Exile, it's just that I haven't managed to get enough spare time lately to play significantly. Right now my party is in the Nephilim Fort near Formello, trying to recover the necklace. With them levelling up, fights have become less frustrating.
  14. Ha ha! Death with twitch gameplay! Long live turn-based gameplay!
  15. What are "twitch" aspects to gameplay? Yeah, this is old stuff that was fashionable twenty years ago; it has been abandoned by probably every game developers by now. What is fashionable today is crafting; who makes a game without crafting nowadays, hey? Even in Queen's Wish! It doesn't mean that it cannot come back of course.
  16. I think it's the last drop but what do you think of that? Pete Hines: "Why Microsoft Is the Perfect Fit". Todd Howard on joining XBox.
  17. These guys are tough indeed. My party will go back there later too. By the way, I know how to avoid monsters spawning too often: do not sleep outside...
  18. Nothing much to say about this week's round. The party went up North after freeing the prisoners from the Nephilim fort, exploring. They stumbled on a "remote temple" and managed to get out of it alive, but it was close. They carried on exploring and eventually found Formello. They visited the city and found its hidden treasure; they disarmed the traps but left the loot on the spot. Then they paid a visit to the mayor who tasked them with retrieving her magic necklace. On to the Nephilim Fort then! Before that, they need to go back to
  19. I switched to another theme and this one is not broken; the default and the "best" themes are broken. I prefer the default theme...
