Heard that the modern ghostbusters game with the old characters is pretty good. Also LM3 is incredibly fun but it just seems off, the original had this hint that things were actually scary even though it never went off the deep end, LM2 and 3 feel like a Disneyland version of a haunted house.

>>16791248

I was lured into the game with high hopes but it's actually pretty shit. I mean, I guess it's kind of neat as a concept but the game is basically 90% waiting and 10% annoying cutscenes.

Anyhow vid related. Oh, and The Typing of the Dead and Dead Rising.

Played pic related and enjoyed the fact it had many pulpy horror tropes. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, gargoyles, the occult, lovecraft, graveyards, etc, works very well combined with the noir detective theme. I have never played another Discworld game or read the books so I am not sure how regular 'fun horror' is in the material but here it's a welcome mix and enjoyable if you're new.

It's a pain in the ass to get the game working on modern computers. You cannot access the options and the load savegame menus from the main menu for example. Instead you have to star a new game each time you start the game, skip all the intros and dialogs and then once you can control the character you can finally load your savegame.

The Playstation port can actually be played with the Playstation Mouse and there is a controller plugin to emulate that mouse.

However the PC version was on three discs, while the PS1 version was condensed to just one. As a result, the cutscenes are in very low quality and a lot of camera angles were removed from normal gameplay.

Nice about the mouse support but what an odd move to edit it down. Not like there weren't plent multi disc games, and doubt an adventure game fan would care about swapping discs.

I don't think that would bother me very much as long as the opening is less than 10 minutes, I've played clunkier games so I'd like to think I have some patience when it comes to this sort of thing. And at the very least I'm happy there's even the option to save instead of having to restart from the beginning like how some older games were or if you've had a computer with a memory leak problem.

Looking into the game more, I can see why I've never heard of it. It was only released in Europe. I wonder how much of a pain in the ass it would be to track down an original copy of the game and an older PC with Windows 98, but I guess I can debate that once I try it out and if I rationalize it'd be easier to play it on original hardware.

It only takes a few seconds of hammering the Esc button to get into the game.

Here is how I got the game working on Windows 10:

- Install the game (full install) and apply a no CD crack.

- Download https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/ and unpack it into a safe folder.

- Start DXWnd and open the dialog under Edit->Add.

- Under the Main tab enter a name and the path. With "W" and "H" you can set the size of the games window. I recommend a multiple of 640x480, e.g. 1280x960 for a 1080p screen. Also select "Desktop center".

- Under the Video tab set this:

Window style: thin frame

Initial virtual color setting: 16 BPP

Screen resolution: Native

- Under the Mouse tab set this:

Cursor visibility: hide

Mouse Clipper: ON

Then hit the OK button. You can now start the game from the DXWnd main screen. Every time you start the game, you have to hit Alt + Enter once.

DxWnd didn't seem to want to run the file until I changed compatability settings, I've done that and the file opens but only displays a black screen before crashing in about 5 seconds and opening it manually does the same thing.

No, for me it works without any compatibility settings. Opening tin3_dxd.exe directly works too for me, but crashes after the first video that plays after hitting new game.

Maybe the game requires DirectPlay. You can activate it by copying optionalfeatures into the search bar and hitting enter. In the dialog that opens you can find DirectPlay under Legacy Components.

Sounds like something went wrong during setup and now files are missing in the game folder.

Try running DXWnd as admin and if that doesn't help, reinstall the game.

No worries anon, the fact it never has been re released anywhere has made it fall into obscurity hard and is really only known in the adventure community at this point. I see recent posts have all been about getting it to run, if it hasn't already been mentioned; there's a fix by a user named Loma over on My Abandonware that made it work like a breeze for me;

https://www.myabandonware.com/game/discworld-noir-48j#download

Once installed, all I had to is just extract the fix into the game folder and ran the game simply using the tin3_dxd exe. Hope that works.

Considering how much horror content that game has (which feels kinda out of place how serious it is during those moments?), definately. 2 horror stages in single player, several horror missions in Arcade.

Man, that mission where you have to kill zombie monkeys while the music sounds like The Shining. It's supposed to be funny but DAMN.

I made a game called When It Hits the Fan that's kind of "wacky horror". Zombies Ate My Neihbors was absolutely an inspiration for it. It has zombies, robots, demons, and aliens invading all at once.

Wait for a sale though. Normally it's on sale for 50%, but the bigger sales are 75% off
