Default The Legend of Kyrandia and other old games!

How many of you actually remember these games?
There were three of them.

I found a place to download ALL three of them. and they all work. I have the three on this PC, working, with sound. (though I have to use another program to run them through to get the sound working, in order to let my sound card recognise it).

I've been going on a real nostalgia trip playing them.. But I have to say on some parts, in particular games 2 and 3, the programmers were EVIL.. there are puzzles which DEFY logic and I needed to look up a walkthrough to work out how to get past things.

Still, the games are awesome and I've loved being able to play them.

If any of you are looking for old games, take a look here, at Home of the Underdogs. They have all kinds of freeware and old games that aren't available anymore. Some games they can't provide, as the companies have asked them not to be distributed (for example, Day of the Tentacle, and the Sierra games), however there are still many games available on this site.

I recommend you take a look!

In lieu of my post about kings quest, if you arent using ScummVM to run Kyrandia 1, then I suggest you do so as it is the most stable method of playing this game atm and hopefully the others will be added to the supported games list too

*edit* Also, Yeah I played all three of these games back in their heyday and I loved them all heh, been a while since i perused the underdogs, tho im pretty sure most of the things I would have gotten from it wont be available anymore heh.

I'm not sure what it is I'm using to run the games. Vasco helped me to set them up to get them going with all the sound and everything, and it's pretty stable I've not had any problems with it at all.

Yeah, if its playing all 3, I suspect dosbox or something similar.
I guess im just used to playing games via scummvm because it just works, rather than messing about to get it to work

hehe that works. I know nothing about emulators or anything like that. I just ask Vasco to fix things for me when they don't work. XD
He knows what he's doing.

I just click the button and make things go.

These games are great! And while they're not Sierra games - I co-admin a site called The Sierra Help Pages (SHP) - and we get old Sierra games running - as well as other games like Sierra (Kyrandia, Blue Force, Les Manley, etc etc). So if anyone has any issues making these games run - stop by - I go by Tawmis on there also - The Sierra Help Pages
