I just noticed that there's a trailer for DK3 in in DK2. Not much of a trailer, but does anyone knows what happened?
I guess they were sidetracked making easy Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings cash-ins.
I thought it was because Black & White was going to be the most revolutionary thing ever coming from one of the Gods of video gaming Peter Molenyux.
The rest, as they say, is hypestory.
Was wondering why they never made a sequel. Was wondering why many Western developers never seem to make it past the second sequel.
Was wandering quite a lot of things lately. :p
A bit off-topic but among the related links, the one for the Keeper Klan need to be corrected as they moved to http://www.keeperklan.com/
Perhaps someone who lost some Abandonia points could do that... (otherwise I'll submit the correction in one week, unless someone has already done that).
They have a thread about the forthcoming Dungeons game. Might be worth watching as hardcore fans usually have fresh(er) news: http://www.keeperklan.com/threads/1219-quot-Dungeons-quot-announced
Well, if anyone's wondering. DK2 doesn't work well on XP. Major sound issues. DK1 works like a charm however.
Tried this unofficial patch (1.80)? http://404forums.net/asylum/showthread.php?t=2403
I am pretty I had it working correctly something like one year ago thanks to that (originally read about the patch on this (French) site: http://dungeon-keeper.net/ )

Whoa! Thanks dude. Didn't download the patch, but I did follow his advice about turning off hardware acceleration. So far so good, dang speakers don't go ghettoblaster in matrix code on me. Yipee!
*note to self: if this works 100% remember to add tip to hints.
If I were you I'd have applied the patch but anyway if all works well for you....
If you happen to know what you would be doing and supposing you meant sound hardware acceleration, there is a quicker way to switch back and forth through hardware acceleration settings by using registry files (rather than having to open dxdiag and move the sliders each time).
This guy has pretty much summed it up:
Although I advise to use regshot for this:
Besides, Regmon is now integrated into Process Monitor (although you can still find downloads for Regmon).
And it is mandatory that you use either regshot or regmon because not only will your peripheral ID be different (you can see it in dxdiag though) but the controlset in use may be different. For instance, in my case it is ControlSet003 that need to be modified (don't really know why).
It will take you a few minutes but if you spend some time playing "old" games, you will find this worth it.
