same! Always have a game sitting there in the background. BTW, the GOG version had the patch properly applied, so all the fixes are there. The Fame setting now works, as does diplomacy, and all sorts of other little things I never even knew were broken. The game is much smoother. It makes impossible difficulty slightly more playable overall, which to my mind is worth the spend. And i could never get the sound working myself in dosbox
I'd still like a function to disable the spell of mastery though, but after the patch the opposing wizards don't practically start with it on impossible.
