Resonance / Scripting Error Causes the game to quit...
« on: June 21, 2012, 02:53:16 PM »
I have encountered a scripting error in Resonance that crashes the game. I'm at the part when Ed and Anna is trying to open the diary. Just after they opened it, and Anna says "The police?", Bennet walks in, and the game quits, leaving me with the image below...

I think it has something to do with when I switched characters back and fourth in the diary-screen, and then switched back to Ed and Anna's conversation, and instead of sitting, they stood up. After that, every time they started talking, they changed to their sitting animation, and after they finished, they resumed their standing animation.

I don't know if this will help or not, but I decided to mention it anyway...

EDIT: Just checked, and all you have to do to trigger this is to switch to Ed at the diary-screen.

The Shivah / I can't play the Shivah!
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:05:22 PM »
I just found out about the Bundle-In-A-Box sale, so I bought it in order to get Gemini Rue and The Shivah, but I can't open the download file.

This is not a problem for Gemini Rue, I can play it on Steam instead, but this was the only option for The Shivah.

The problem is that it isn't in a normal setup.exe, it's in a .FILE-file, and I don't know how to open those...

EDIT: Ok, nevermind. I was able to fix the problem.

The Blackwell series / The Blackwell games on GOG.com!?
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:49:03 PM »
AMAZING! I'm a big fan of GOG.com. Too bad I already own all the games on steam, but I like the GOG style of gameversions so much more! Any chance I can get a discount?

Joking aside, good for you Wadjeteye! This is THE site to have your games on, it's the best.
Since both the Blackwell bundle and Resonance(pre-ordered, YAY!) have been put on sale on the GOG-site, is it safe to expect your other titles, like Gemini Rue and The Shivah to be on sale there soon as well? I'd really like to play them, but if they are going to come to GOG, I would rather get them there.

I would like to see a scene that builds the relationship between Rosa-Lauren, and Rosa-Joey. A scene when young Rosa visits Lauren at the hospital.

We know that Rosa went to visit Lauren in her comatose state very often, and it would be nice to see that aspect of her life expanded on.

Personally, I have a picture in my head of 6-year old Rosa going to the hospital, with her teddy Griff firmly in her arms, to see her aunt the first time since she fell ill. Due to her timid nature, she'll probably just pull up a chair, and observe Lauren from across the room.
The next week she might go up closer, to her bed this time. Maybe say a few words, and see if she can get a reaction.

After some more weeks, Rosa might try to place her hand on Lauren's. She's her aunt after all.
Some more weeks might pass, and Rosa probably brings a book this time. There is not much to do at the hospital other than watching Lauren snoozing, so she brings something to read while watching over Lauren.

After some time, she might even try to pull up a chair next to Lauren's bed, and read out loud for her. She might still be conscious, and be able to hear her. Maybe.
Joey, just finished with his daily routine of counting the cracks in the ceiling for the 10th time, welcomes the change of pace and listens to little red reading her children stories. Sure, he might have wished she would read a newspaper, or the tabloids, but he'll gladly take what he can get at this point.

Not before long, he even looks forward to Rosa coming to visit. Sure, she might be a boring little kid, but at least it's better than watching the clouds all day...again...

Well, that's all I have for now. Be sure to leave your thoughts, or ideas for little things that would be nice to see in one of the games.

The Blackwell series / Thoughts and Questions about the Blackwell-series
« on: January 24, 2012, 03:40:15 PM »

I recently bought the Blackwell Bundle on Steam, and I absolutely loved it. It's a truly great adventure series. I just discovered the games right after New Years, but I waited to buy them on Steam so that I could get the remastered versions.

My favorite of them is probably Convergence. It has a really great atmosphere, a throughout exiting story, and it wraps up the “Joe Gould Trilogy” quite nicely.
It also has, in my opinion, the best character portraits. I just love the style that they are drawn. Deception's portraits were also nice, but the per-mentioned were more fitting. And, plus, they animated.

But anyway, let's talk about some of the things that I have been thinking about after playing through the games, like some things I might have missed, or plot holes.

1: John Durkin
If you remember, he is the father of Sam Durkin from Unbound,  Deception, and I think The Shivah... Anyway, it is said in Unbound that he died, both Sam and Mavis mentioned that.

However, in Legacy, the last letter that Lauren got was from a law office, answering a question about Lauren’s legal rights to raise Rosa. And who is it from? John Durkin.

2: Frank Lyons = Joe Gould?
In Convergence, when you talk to Frank Lyons, he appears to be a schizophrenic, randomly spouting nonsense about Joe Gould and the Minetta. But how did he know these things? He had never been at the Minetta, and he had never even heard about Joe Gould. I didn't even see a copy of the book “Joe Gould's Secret” in his apartment.
Plus, Monique didn't know about any of them either, so Frank couldn't have been a schitz when he lived, or she should have noised.

Did the echo of Joe Gould attach itself on his soul when the Countess killed him? Hmm...

3: Tomo
Ok, this isn't a plot hole or anything, I just want to start a discussion about this. Who is Tomo?
We have seen a cople of spam e-mails from him, selling software. If you Oogle “tomo” a bunch of nonsense comes up.
At the nightclub Munray's, the machine you select songs on is called “Virtual DJ (by DJ Tomo)” and if you Oogle “munray's” they even point out “Special guest appearance by DJ Tomo!”

So who is this Tomo? Is he going to appear in a future game? Probably.

Ehh, enough about this. Might as well be useful and provide some bugs.

Legacy: After you talk to Ali the first time, Rosa's text box reads: “ I should get to bed”, but the voice says “No”.
Also, if you talk to the Deacon after he drops his flask, he still use the drinking animation.

Convergence: If you look at the Countess when she tries to kill Charles, it reads “She's trying to kill him!” but there is no voice.

Deception: When you talk to Lisa over the buzzer about Danny Marconni you see Lisa's normal character portrait, instead of the dark shadowy one.

That's what I have for now, thanks for the great games, and good luck on the next one. I can't wait to play it.
