Do it, man.  KQ 6 is the best one in the series! :yes:
agreed.  I got it working again and I`m most of the way through playing the long ending.  I remembered almost everything.  Those things just don`t escape your brain.  It`s not like its been forever, but I haven`t played it since early last year.

Something hard to believe is that I survived the first 8 years of my life without any sierra games. :D

hahaha but yeah.  I agree with haids.  what I had before I got a good dosbox setup for all the games was an old windows 95 laptop I got at a thrift store.  It played all of them pretty well.  Except KQ7 ran really slow.

What is escapable? Surely not the Asylum.
Surely you must know all windows, just as doors, have biometric sensors too, so if you can jump through one (even though you can just as easily step through them, you needn't jump) means you're allowed to.

What are you doing in my cel- er...Super Happy Fun Room? Sheesh, you open the window to let in some fresh air, and people start jumping in... ::)
My point exactly. BTW, Jafar, you can 'set' the biometric sensors to your room whether (or not) to allow other patients in there you know. You can even specify independently from the door and the window, as well as which patient(s) can and which can't.

Wha? :'( No, no, no, no, no, no....This can't be right. *jumps out the window in this room*
And back into your own cell. My, my, what are you up to now, Deloria?

Pie?   !!!  Don't worry about cleaning, Gilgamesh, I'll lick it up.
Who's the cat here (between us), me or you? That's gross! *orders personal to confine Haids to isolation cell* (Note, no cats attempted to lick the pie).

but... butt... butt ít's a pie that's standing a week out of the fridge. Doesn't sound tasty.  :jealous:
What do you take the automatic systems of this Asylum for? Naturally the pie Gilgamesh inadvertently threw away was not the pie that was served on his birthday anymore, but was a replacement pie. As is policy in the Asylum, anything that has exceeded its freshness date is replaced. Doesn't matter if it's in a patient's fridge or not, those sensors can "sniff them out" anywhere (and no, it's not any type of feline).

Inspired by (even though they were disillusions) the idea of Deloria, the Asylum holoroom is now equipped with anti-grav units. That means you can actually float/fly. Naturally, at a certain height the normal operation of the holoroom will take over and the 'scenery' will 'indicate' you rising (further).

What are all the upgrades that have been made copycat?

the following has been seen by me:
- Mail delivery system (I call that Email)
- android guardcats (I don't like it when they peek at me, feels like being watched)
- even more cameras (luckily still none found in the bathroom)
- spyware
- hardware
- software
- painting of a person, but only the eyes keep moving so now and then.
- escape hatch (wait, that's just my front door)

What other miracles have been placed here?

Obviously, I won't divulge all the improvements that have been made to the various 'systems' in the Asylum to patients.

Naturally, you can receive snail mail in the Asylum, all scanned upon entry of course. Then there's also a chance to get a computer and surf the 'Net, given the fact there's a filter of course. Naturally, that too means you can get an e-mailaddy, both on- and/or off-line. Of course, e-mail that is sent or received is also routed through a filter, even the on-line ones.

You can't see all the cameras. Not all camera's 'record' in visual mode either. However, rest assured there's some type of camera in the bathroom too.

The painting where you see the eyes move is an optical illusion, and only happens when you look at it from a certain distance at a certain angle.

What we need is a Rocket Jockey arena. Them space cows ain't gonna round up themselves, ah reckon!
One can always ask the holoroom programmer the specifics of said Arena, at which time (s)he will program it into the holoroom computer instantaneously from which time you can always 'load' it at any time.
