    Now that I’m done with The Settlers 2, I can start another game. I think I’d very much appreciate playing something in a different style and in a different setting. Let’s see.

    Perfect.

    Edit: ah, the days when manuals were one-hundred-page-long and more!

    I finally finished this fucking game. My save file started like 4 years ago.

    I tried going for True Healer too, but turns out the last battle is fucking impossible to keep everyone alive if you've got no spells cus you're doing alchemist.

    To be fair, I got thrust unknowingly into the final battle without being ready for it.

    Also, one of them requires magic and my playthrough forbid it.

    Book II is fairly good. Book 3 though... I'd reckon it's the worst one of the bunch, I think.

    Enjoying RTNP: Ultimate Edition so far.
    In-fighting is always fun, and the little dinos are fun new enemies.

    I may have started this game (Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis) like half a dozen times but never finished it. I found some funny pictures while rummaging through my old Steam screencaps:

    octavius, it seems like you have multitextures enabled again. As you might remember, type preferences in the console or text chat, hit Enter, and disable multitextures and OneXBlending in whichever renderer you're using. Also, if you care, it's possible to get an up-scaled HUD if the game is run through dgVoodoo (the Direct3D or the unofficial DirectX8 renderers both work fine with it), set a small resolution in the game, and force your preferred one in dgVoodoo's settings.

    Edit: Actually, since it's a modification, there's a chance that something might not look right if it was designed with those features in mind. Still worth a try, it should make the skies look better.

    LSD Dream Emulator: a proto walking simulator where you are in some place, until you bump into a object wich teleports you to another place with weird visuals, and the same thing ad vitam æternam, it's a good game to play drunk:

    R/C Stunt Copter: a simulation of RC helicopters by Interplay/Shiny, with hypersensitive controls using the analog sticks, hard to reach objectives and the usual Shiny humour with the situations and the voice of an anouncer always critical of the player's performance:

    The result of most missions: the helicopter in pieces :mixedemotions:



    Jumping Flash: a mix of a fully 3D FPS (before Quake) and a platformer, the game is still fun to play:

    For the platforming sections the player can triple jump, the appearance of the character's feet and its shadow helps nicely for landing the jumps.

    The stages are divided between large open levels, enclosed labyrinths like Wolf 3D and boss stages:

    I tried the multitextures trick, but I can't see any effect using Direct3D9 or OpenGL.
    RTNP: Ultimate Edition, or the texture packs it uses, supports only those two renderers. The game intro looks quite a bit better with regular Direct3d, but then it can't handle the improved textures for creatures and crashes:
    "Encountered oversize texture without sufficient mimaps"

    I tried using Glide and dgVoodoo, but that turned the game into a slideshow.
    So I will play RTNP: Ultimate Edition with OpenGL and suffer some sub-optimal graphics, and then switch to Direct3D for other UT mods I may play.

    It's strange that disabling multitextures shouldn't change anything in those renderers. Perhaps it's something about that mod. I don't know if it's compatible with the OldUnreal patch, but perhaps the rendersrs included there would change something. There was this media pack with the updated renderers that didn't require installing the patch: https://www.oldunreal.com/specialpatches.html

    As for dgVoodoo, it works fine with the unofficial DirectX8 renderer included with the OldUnreal patch if you wish to use S3TC textures. The older renderers won't work with them.
