Identify that DEATH
« on: July 10, 2004, 03:57:08 PM »
Here's a new game I thought of, Can you guess the death?

Rules-

Read the qoute and screenshot of the deaths message box and try to tell us what-
game the death is from, Who got killed, and How.

One poster at a time and only post a new one when the last one was confirmed as "correctly answered" ...

Only post screenshots of the death message and no other part of the screen at all. Do not alter the image..

I'm wondering of this game will be too hard....Maybe we could limit it to Seirra only games if this is too hard

From the context... I'd guess Leisure Suit Larry or Quest For Glory... but I haven't played much of either series, so I can't make a more specific guess.

Two hints with a little bit of a twist:

It's from a king's quest game AND it involes leisure suit larry  XD

Since you said it involves LSL... is it the death message you get when you choose the lounge lizards world at the door of destiny? ???

As you might have guessed, I kind of like this idea, and I'd hate to see it, well, die a lonely death. So I'll post one in the interim. ;)

This one might be an easy one, but it's one of my faves, so I couldn't resist. ;D

Peace & Luv, Liz

Sorry I let this thread die out... but I found it VERY hard to a specific death message that is not overly descriptive. I did finally find one - and though I managed to get that SCIV game running on XP(!!) with sound(!!) and without using ANY emulators(!!) OR tinkering with definitions(!!), it refused to take screenshots of it >:(

You let my topic die, but I'll revive it with another message..once I guess this one...

I have no idea what the above message is either, I never really played Police Quest...

A simple screen grab is done with the PrintSCrn button
or inside a window its Ctrl+PrintScrn or something like that
and paste it into a image handling program...

Yes, my scene is from a Police Quest. :) Can anyone figure out the rest of it?

As for Storm's problem... I've known people before to have problems with the Print Screen key in XP. I discovered a possible solution to the problem while at my uncle's house... unfortunately I no longer remember it, and the post is no longer available at the forum I posted it on. :-\ About all I can say is that I got the solution by looking through the XP help files, so try that.

Peace & Luv, Liz

My guess is the main character meets a hot chick and some how she accidently knocks the phone off the hook and you can no longer get calls so there's no longer a point playing the game.

You have the gist of it right, but I think we'll need some specifics. ;)

Unless I'm mistaken, it's PQ3.  
She was a whole lotta kidnapped in PQ2. (and the background colour of the death would be white, if I'm not mistaken....I died plenty'o'times in that game)

Unless it's the PQ1 remake or something (did they even do one?) and it's a big no-no because she's a prostitute in that game.

Unfortunately, I don't remember PQ3 well enough to know at what point, as she was abducted/assaulted in that one, too....I think.  Maybe after you take her home from the hospital?
Just look at me,
