@Arcc: Actually, I didn't rehydrate the monastary Domovoi OR get the doll until long after I freed Davy. I guess I lucked out.

@tenata: That's what I would hope too.

@Orion: QFG3 was actually my favorite. :3

@Druss: Yeah, I totally understand what you mean.
Evil wizards? Dark Knights? Banana pudding? I'll take them all on!

Really? I remember this being the second most-talked-about bug in QfG4 after Error 52. I thought it was more due to an inherent flaw in the game design rather than processor speed, so DOSBox and the NRS patches could never fix it. . .

But I haven't actually gotten through the first three games in years. I don't know anymore. Maybe I'm crazy. Am I crazy?

But I knew I was already crazy before. So if I was already crazy and was aware of it, but am now concerned I might be going crazy. . .

This is awesome!

I'm not totally thrilled with the idea of a remake of QfG1 -- I mean, okay, yeah the whole series is a little out of date technologically speaking but the games do still work! (GoG has proven that!) I mean, a reboot of the series might give them a chance to make it a little more cohesive as a world, maybe allow them to blend the story from QfG3 in just a tad bit better.... but I'd rather see NEW projects or the novel come out of their kickstarter.

That said, yeah, I'd contribute anyways. I don't have much I can afford to give, but they can have it! tongue.gif

More news:
Wow.. The Two Guys From Andromeda facebook page just posted to QFG fans confiming once more about the Coles doing a Kickstarter! smile.gif

https://www.facebook...251943864924269


I for one think a remake is a great idea. Much like with the new Al Lowe Leisure Suit Larry kickstarter remakes it allows the Coles to make their original games not just look nicer but also add more content and fix a lot of bugs. You can bet with every one of the 5 games in the series that they had more ideas that didn’t make it into the game due to time constraints. This normally happens with every game out there, but since QFG was not in the age of heavy patching and DLC it was not possible to stick those extra things in later. Now it is.. just imagine what they could do with each QFG game.. smile.gif and just like with Al Lowe’s plan if they make enough money of the remakes then along comes a sequel!

Oh for Chester's sake! Blake, little comments like that about freedom of speech aren't necessary. I like you, man. So please, don't leave the forums over a rule you don't agree on.


Thanks man, but as Elsa said you don't have to be American to believe in freedom of speech, I'm certainly not! wink.gif There wasn't any bad language or porn or anything of the sort going on in 'that' thread (at least not until that other guy got angry at Elsa) otherwise I wouldn't have been involved in it! Since 2010 we were just talking about the music, bugs, puzzles and quests of a QFG fan game that happens to ALSO contain some questionable material, however that material was not being discussed by me as you'll notice my posts, my videos and hell my entire webpage devoted to it are all G (child) rated as I always try to respect the rules of a board. Banning one of the most popular QFG fan games just invites more bad press, more inactive members, more banned members, less new members, and more problems for you guys to clean up or get upset about eg.
1- like it or not people are going to keep coming here and asking questions about 'it' in random areas when they can't find a dedicated thread to post in.
2- the big up and coming QFG style fan game Quest for Infamy contains rude humour, (the intro starts with you messing around with a Barons daughter lol) is that going to be banned too?
3- The original Coles QFG2 and ADGI fan remake has a 100% nude spyglass scene, perhaps we should ban that too and rename the site to Quest for More G rated Glory Only?
4- If the other big QFG fan game Heroines Quest or the next big Cole's game we're discussing in this thread has a rude joke or a nude scene in it what happens then?

I’m in my 30’s (unfortunately lol) so I’m not one of those kids who trolls boards looking to cause trouble and I've already said earlier why I come here and believe in this place so obviously I do not wish to upset people with an argument so I will certainly abide by your rules and decisions including this one (I've travelled the world so yes I understand and respect your cultural customs analogy) but don't say I didn't warn you about why it’s a bad idea! I've seen some really good forums die over the years because everyone accepts the usual 'no swearing/porn/pirating' rules but people never react well to being told what topics or games they can and can't talk about with the threat of banning. This great place is obviously a real labour of love for Elsa and I'd REALLY hate to see it join all those other sites that are either dead or long gone now. We need to expand its coverage of QFG games, not restrict it!

That’s my 5 cents.. and yes don't worry I'll shut up & drop the topic now as requested as I don't wanna get banned too frown.gif

First of all, I don't know if you've noticed, but all forum boards have rules about what people can and cannot post in them. And yeah those who don't go by those rules get banned eventually.

Second, I don't know if you I've noticed, but the last thing I care about, is how much traffic this site gets and/or making a profit of anykind out of it. No, my friend, this place is a place I spent tons and tons of time building, and I haven't made a single cent out of it. I'm paying for it instead. And I will continue to do so, regardless of the traffic.

Third of all, (and apparently you haven't noticed), this site and forums are dedicated in the original Quest for Glory series and the ideals it stands for. And personally, I will not have any game or anybody for that matter offend or ruin those ideals, in my forums. I don't care if not a single person comes to visit this place for the sake of not being able to post about that offensive poor excuse for a QFG fan game.

This site is here to help players and provide support for the official Quest for Glory games (for those who actually skip the main site and come straight to the forums). And yeah, I consider the QFG 2 Remake by AGDI, as part of the official series since the Coles themselves accepted it.

My name is Elsa Von Spielburg and I am a Paladin.

I'm with you on some points, Blake smile.gif But even Phoenix Online doesn't permit discussions on the game on grounds of it being borderline 'pornography'... While yes, QfG has one scene of nudity with Zayishah (2 if you count Uhura's occasional nip-slips in QfG3, 3 if the Rusulka is counted, but she's covered up.) the series as a whole aren't made on vulgar humor. As for Heroine Quest (which I personally dislike for my own reasons, none of them game related) or any other game made, a handful of jokes are fine, but when irs every time you click, or whole plot points being one vulgar joke just for a cheap laugh... that's my main issue *shrugs*

As for QFI, I've not tried the demo yet, but I anxiously await the release of the game. It might be crude humor but it's not called QfG6 or anything. (I had a friend find 4.5 on his own and was raving about it, and wanted to play the real games thinking they were just as full of the same type of humor). He was pleasantly surprised when the actual games had intelligent humor instead of sex jokes every description.

The main problem is just that the 'toilet' humor of the game is so completely different than the rest of the series that a lot of us just dislike the game. If it'd had its own graphics and didn't have the QFG label pasted on it, I'd probably like it. I like crude humor.

Anywho, I'm willing to continue this in PM's if you'd like.

As for the news, that's awesome! And thanks for the FB link. biggrin.gif Got myself another thing for me to follow religiously biggrin.gif

Thankyou Elsa I did indeed notice those things, and if I humbly suggest you re-read my previous post you’ll also notice that I certainly do mention the standard rules that everyone is okay with as they pretty much exist in all forums, but was actually referring to the unfortunate results of when admins make extra unusual rules like “this is a fruit forum about oranges and bananas so if you mention apples YOU WILL BE BANNED!” leading to good some forums I used to visit dying over the years, and that I also make no mention or accusation of money or profit whatsoever as I was already well aware that much like me you made this QFG site because of your passion for QFG and likely operate it at a cost to you (I see no adds) which I commend you for! I for one hope it doesn’t die and I will continue to post about all other QFG related news here in an attempt to help make sure that doesn’t happen! smile.gif I just think it’s unfortunate that you have such a strong opinion of a game you haven’t played as I think you would be quite surprised if one day you sat down with my walkthrough (that warns and tells you how to avoid the inappropriate content and only play all the fun sierra style normal QFG quests in the game) and had a go at it, but the game is an acquired taste so there’s obviously every chance you’d still hate it, so I realise there’s not much I can do to change your mind lol!

Could I make the request that if someone posts here about 'it' and 1 of you does the standard thread lock and banning msg that you tell them to pm or email me with their problem? That way the problem is out of your hands and they don't get their nose bent the wrong way lol!

Nah that’s cool Orion, no need to continue over PM, I knew I probably wouldn’t have any luck convincing you both but thought I’d politely try anyway lol. And yeah its great news.. if the Coles do a remake kickstarter I’ll be purchasing a boxed collectors edition guaranteed! smile.gif

I'd probably deplete my bank account >.< I worship the Coles that much... Personally I'm hoping for a new game or a remake, maybe along the lines of how TSL is done, but regardless of what it is...

The game we're talking about isn't a QfG game. It was purposely made to be a different type of game. I don't find any problem with it being a banned topic. If I had made QfG, it wouldn't be the sort of thing I would want my series connected with. I don't find anything wrong with it, if someone wants to play it then fine (I did myself for a bit, but I quickly lost interest), but it doesn't actually have any place in this forum. It being named the same, and containing some of the same locations, doesn't actually make it a QfG game, or anything that needs to be connected to this site.

I think that hit the nail on the head smile.gif

Perhaps we should drop the discussion before Elsa gets her whip after us wink.gif
