    You really should switch over to the TAC mod and give it a whirl. Otherwise you're cheating yourself out of a chance to play the game in its best form. Its a much better and richer game using the TAC mod. It's a superior experience in every way. The TAC mod essentially obsoletes Vanilla TBH.

    Yes I know, because I didn't buy and play HL until after I settled in Germany (in 2006).

    I'd bought a Steam multi-key CD that also allowed me to install HL:Blue Shift, HL:Opposing Force, and Team Fortress (though I never tried the last). What was kind of ridiculous, was that HL was censored, but the expansions weren't! So although the main campaign indeed looked a little weird at times, I was nonetheless allowed to gib those b*****d HECU Marines and Black Ops to my hearts' content in the expansions, just as nature/ Valve intended.
    Yeah, I only managed to complete most of the 'later' C:BEL missions (i.e. pretty much everything after Mission 5 or so!) by savescumming: on some missions I was saving pretty much after each successful kill.

    In celebration of finally beating Mission 20, I actually wrote a walkthrough for it myself, because it had taken me so damn long to do, and I was so chuffed with myself for managing it without online help (I'd found a massive textfile on MobyGames or somewhere, which walked through up to Mission 19, but no further).

    I'll try it out since it works on Linux, but since A Sanguine Tale and the Dragon Trilogy have both been ported to Wesnoth 1.14 (headsup @Ajidica) I'm afraid my attention will be focused on that. Especially with a major bug fix.

    What is the intended warning, exactly?

    Mostly for Tim not to flip out the next time he enters GoG.

    It's the first time I've seen it shoved onto the main page. Maybe it's because since I only have to log in to GoG when I download the game file and then install it and run it separately (unlike Steam) then I only occasionally enter that, whereas the much more invasive Steam, with just the one game from them, gets far more often in my face.

    Do you agree with the assessment by Clan Bitterleaf (celebrated forest rangers and cooks) that orcs and goblins are wandering chunks of XP?

    I have GOG Galaxy so that Playnite can see my uninstalled games. When I launch a GOG game, it just opens. When I launch a Steam game, it opens the Steam client (unless I have it open already), goes through 50 updates, and then launches the game.

    I just use GoG to look at my uninstalled games. Since I don't use Galaxy, there's no real way to identify a "GoG game" on my machine. I just run what I want. If I ever launch a Steam game, you will all know since the universe will implode.

    I just like having all my games in one place together. I used to use Windows' built-in Game Explorer (which is a step up from 'dumping all your game shortcuts in one folder') but it was removed. I tried adding everything to Steam but it just felt clunky. Then I found Playnite. :)

    I don't mind just having all my game shortcuts littering my desktop. When it gets to be too much I make a toybox folder and shove all the shortcuts I'm not likely to be using in that.

    Yeah but that's less pretty.

    I brought Blitzkreig3 during the sale but everyone whom tried it during the free weekend has some kind of horrendous bug that prevents all progress
    Developers are all on holidays and the forums are starting to fill with angry players.

    Its a pretty fun RTS for like $3, the earning units, leveling them up and base building elements are nice gameplay loop. Kinda sucks that I cant play it

    Video games are fun. :smug: Except when they break that badly.
