I've played through it three times. The last time it took 15 hours, so I'm guessing that's fairly close to the minimum if you don't skip dialogue, but never get stuck. It's not a difficult game, but...

I was mixing up terms a bit, so I can see how that would be confusing. The terminal you open to install the "install-mbr" utility basically gives you access to a command prompt. fdisk is a program...

This sounds more like a corrupted MBR (Master Boot Record) than a virus to me. This is easy to fix with a Windows recovery CD, but you don't need it. The following works with any Linux live CD using...

Thanks a lot! I downloaded the file at work a while ago, and just got a chance to test it. Seems to work. Now I just need the time to actually play it. :)

Oh, and on a side note, I notice the game...

I don't really know of any games similar to The Lost Crown on any platform, but if you want to replay it on a MAC, or lend it to a friend with a MAC, it works just fine with Wine...

I got the e-mail and an activation code, which was a nice surprise. Unfortunately the new version seems to have the exact same issues as the old one, at least for me. I tested looking at the stable...

I finally found a workaround that might let me play the game. I tried running the game in Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) using Wine (1.2.1). The game seems to work fine as long as I run it on a virtual desktop...

All death scenes have been removed from the Director's Cut as far as I could tell. If any are left, they'd have to be considered easter eggs, as I failed to die even when trying to.

Okay, at that price, I would have gotten it off Steam as well. Says €35.99 for me (10% off from €39.99). €39.99 from the adventure shop, so £17 from the Deep Silver shop seemed like a decent enough...

I just got it from the Deep Silver shop. It was half the price of Steam and the Adventure Shop at £17, and I figure if I want to play it again in a year or two and I've somehow lost the installation...
