I suppose I should more formally introduce myself.  I've been watching the progress of the project for over five years and felt like burning teddy bears thanks to both Vivendi and Activision, but I haven't really been that active on the forums themselves in the past.  I have a number of years of experience in technical support across a variety of Windows-based applications and lots of practice getting games in particular to run under odd scenarios, all the way back to the days when we used to have to make boot disks and play around with autoexec.bat and config.sys files to get things to run.  My actual college degree is in accounting and I currently teach high school math, but have always loved games.  I own a number of game systems all the way from a still-functional Atari to a PS3 and a Wii, but no matter how great the new games are nothing replaces that nostalgia from the old Sierra adventure games lineup.

I'm happy to be helping folks out and am excited to continue to see more of these great episodes coming out.

Hello.  I am thatgreekguy, I have been a fan of the king's quest games since I was a kid.  My parents had Quest for the Crown on their old Apple and it was one of the first games I remember playing because it was so different from all the other games I had seen before.  I love playing all types of games.  I am a newcomer to this site because I didn't know that The Silver Lining was being made since i heard VIII was the last one officially made. 
Just call me "Greek" its the easiest one to do!

Welcome aboard thatgreekguy, happy to hear you've had a long history playing these games.  As a fan-made game The Silver Lining has sort of stayed underground for a long time, but hopefully it'll really get out there now that the episodes are starting to become playable.

Welcome TGG  :)
Thank you, Rob, I was wondering how to shorten his name.  I was thinking just "Greek," but that didn't sound right. :)

Hi new friends!!!! :D

We're roleplaying in the King's Quest world: come join in the fun!

Thanks for all the warm welcomes everyone.  I don't mind what you all shorten my name to.  I have been called "Greek" in high school so I guess that is fine with you all here.
