Speaking of GOG. You can connect your Steam account to your GOG account and get GOG copies of some of your Steam games. There's only a few now but they'll add more.

Right now the service seems to be collapsed, though

I'm fairly sure the Origin version of Nox is the same as the GOG version, so, yes.
Cool, thanks  :grin:

That's great news, I hope Return to Castle Wolfenstein gets included in this some day; I fondly remembered watching my brother playing it when it was first released, then bought it on Steam five years ago to actually play it myself for the first time- and found that it didn't work.

Really? RtCW uses the Quake III engine so it runs fine on modern operating systems, even Windows 10. With a bit of tinkering it should work on your computer. Obviously there are exceptions but RtCW is pretty stable (you have to mess around with config files to get 16:9 resolutions in the vanilla game).

Forgot to mention, there is an unofficial RtCW patch that fixes issues and makes it more stable on modern drivers. I tried it a while back and it seemed to work pretty well. It's a port of the popular ioquake3 engine to RtCW. ioquake3 is basically just a new engine designed to support Quake III and other projects on modern systems.

In the console when you've loaded up the game (default key ~ or the key to the left of 1) you have to type these commands for best results. Input them in order exactly how you see them:

/cl_renderer rend2
/r_mode -2
/cg_fixedAspect 2
/vid_restart  (this one restarts the renderer which will apply all these commands.)

https://github.com/iortcw/iortcw/releases/tag/1.42b

You don't need to wait at all, just tinker with that new engine and it should work! If you have issues with the patch above then you can also try another older unofficial patch that has since become obsolete because of said newer patch above.

Cheers Densetsu, it works fine! I think last time I tried, back in 2011, I searched online for solutions but I couldn't even get it to load. I think I was on Windows 7 then, definitely my previous computer. This time it loaded up fine after installing; patched it just to be safe. Great game too, I'm in the catacombs now.

That level scared he hell out of me as a kid. It's actually still quite creepy. RtCW is dripping with atmosphere.

Yeah, its one of those levels that you enjoy but at the same time you are desperate to reach the end and not see another zombie warrior for a while. There is a nice Indiana Jones type bit where you have to activate three levers, each at the end of a short T-shaped passage:

Each passage contains a specific trap; in fact there are two hazards in one of the passages. One is easy, just avoid obvious foot plates so that you don't trigger the saws in the wall and ceiling; another you get plenty of warning of a spike bed swinging down from the ceiling; the third is a little tricky. A few feet of mist cover the ground so that you can barely see the spike pit you need to jump over. Then, as soon as you pull the lever at the back wall, the walls begin to rapidly close in at the head of the T.

I'm on the church bit now, trying to hit those acrobatic elite guard women- this is a section I remember my brother playing all those years ago, I remember him saying what a nightmare they were to fight.

And also too late, sorry :razz: Quail asked for it in the meantime.
Next time.
Technically, it's pretty much a relief; I don't bother with the thing regularly enough to even keep it up to date, and it'd take all night just to get that sorted.
