    Nintendo Switch

    Just so I can understand the answer when it arrives. It's just the profile which is linked, so there is no child account or his own Nintendo account? The other reason I am reluctant to go family membership is that I don't trust Nintendo to have some no way back pitfall in the way I choose to set it up. I'd experiment more if I trusted them not to have some crazy thing hidden in there.

    Nintendo Switch

    Thanks. I was probably being optimistic there, just that elsewhere in the guidance it refers to accounts rather than users. Feels a bit mean for me to back up my saves and not theirs, damn you Nintendo and your fingers in my wallet.

    Nintendo Switch

    Whilst on the subject of kids enjoying the Switch. Mine have profiles on my Switch, would linking those to my Nintendo Account get them Cloud saves if I had an individual membership to the service? I'm not sure what Nintendo mean by "user" in this bit: "One save data file can be uploaded per software title, per user."

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Any idea of a timeline for this coming to OSX and iOS? I'd love to be able to see some old games which were very dear to me in my childhood but I've never been sure of going the emulator and finding ROMs route. As others have said the licensed part is a big plus. How have those people been found? Does it always include the creators of the games or are there cases where the licences have ended up elsewhere?
  5. At best it's going to be the demo referred to in the gtw information. The same seller has a Desert Fox pre production disk up for sale too so maybe they have got hold of a box of disks from a source involved in the industry from back then. It's pretty sad that the first port of call for this stuff isn't some sort of UK gaming archive so it can be carefully tested, the code saved and the physical elements put in a museum. If this is the only copy in existence then it should be treated as our gaming history not flogged and sent economy delivery. It's made me think about what I do with my old stuff.

    C64 ownership at last - psu question

    Interesting thread. I too didn't realise C64 PSUs were such a problem. One day I hope to dig my old 'breadbin' style one out of the loft and get it working again. The power light just stopped coming on one day and now I'm thinking the PSU may have fried it one way or another. I have a grubby 64C as well which I got from a market stall and worked the last time I turned it on but it's not got the same appeal at all. Looks like some investment may be needed to even test them. Good luck with getting yours working safely.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Aha great, thanks very much for your help.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Apologies if this isn't the right place to ask this, I'll remove if it isn't. I'm selling my old miniatures and can't recall the name or identify by research this WH40K Squat. "Greyclaw" springs to mind for some reason. A selfish request but I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds correct. I've only played through the launcher and mine looks right.

    If you didn't get or missed the email GOG have introduced user profiles and the default settings were too open for my taste so you may want to take a look in privacy and settings for it.
  11. Thanks. Plus points for having Pool of Radiance on the cover, looking forward to reading the piece on it.

    I had a great time with this game. It’s the first one my kids (aged 7 and 9) have been interested enough in and not put off by complexities to pick up the controller and play. We’re on the second play through now. They love the sound, visuals and the different elements that get introduced to help or hinder as you go through. It’s fascinating to watch them experience it as a first game with no preconceptions about what it should be or comparisons with any other game. The simplicity of the controls and puzzles really helped them to see the joy of gaming. It will always hold a special memory for us now.
  13. Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know.
  14. Glad to hear this is coming to consoles soon. A slightly off topic question but I couldn't find a thread for the first one...Divinity Enhanced Edition is on sale on both GOG and the PS Store. So I'm weighing up whether to get it for my PS4 Pro or my 2010 27-inch iMac. Does that one work well with the control pad too? Or would a keyboard + mouse set up be the better experience? From my limited understanding of spec requirements they should both be fine for running it nicely. The iMac is: Processor Name: Intel Core i5 Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 8 MB Memory: 4 GB Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 5750 Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 1024 MB and the recommended spec reqs (from Steam): RECOMMENDED: OS: OS X 10.11.1 Processor: Intel i5 2400 or higher Memory: 8192 MB RAM Graphics: Intel Iris Pro or discrete video card Storage: 10000 MB available space Additional Notes: HFS+ case sensitive partitions not supported Thanks.

    Monster Hunter: World

    I've been doing a bit of research on crowns and came across this site. If i understand it correctly it identifies investigations and other quests where a particular crown has been found more often. It's not the only place you will find them but should increase your chances. https://mhcrown.com/mhworld/world/
