I've been hunting around for a few things on the internet recently and not having much luck, so I figured I'd ask everyone around here.

Firstly, I dunno how many of you guys remember the "Alternate Heroes" add-on for QfG5 that a user name Jamy made, but his site went poof when Geocities did. Anybody know a means to get in contact with him?

Secondly, I recall an old QfG fansite from years ago that had large-size versions of the various QfG5 spell icons (including my own avatar). Does anybody else recall that site? I've been looking for it with no luck for some time.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is that what you're looking for? They all look smaller. I can't believe I still kept the link after all the purges I've made!

You mean the add-on for playing as Elsa and as Magnum Opus? I don't remember the guy who did them, but I think I have the addon itself somewhere in my PC. I can look for it if you want me to...

Right idea, wrong size. The larger, quality images I remember were about the same size as the animated versions in QfG5 itself (in fact, some of them may actually have been animated GIFs - save Glide, obviously).

Yep, that's what I meant (and like I said, the creator went by Jamy around the net as well as these very forums). I don't need the program so much as the installation executable, so if you still have that, I'd be happy to get a copy.

The Elsa and Magnum "add-on" by Jamy was really just a set of saved games, and they were distributed in a pair of ZIP files. These were created with Te'ja Laymind's QfG5 save game editors. Around that time (2000), I also used the same to make a Bruno save game (which has very limited entertainment value).

I've still got the ZIPs of the savegames and installers for the editors.

I'm not talking about those, adeyke. I'm talking about the Additional Heroes add-on program Jamy created a while back. It's an alternate executable for QfG5 that allows almost complete playthrough for Elsa and Magnum as well as altering certain text and speech to be more appropriate and creating individual save folders for each character that the program can switch between as the player chooses.

The "saved at the start" games are indeed part of it, but the add-on program itself is more than just those.

Ah, sorry. I'd forgotten about that. I was going to say that I'd never heard of that, but this thread proves otherwise. Unfortunately, I can't help.

Mmh, I can't seem to find it although I remember I dowloaded it. I've been using my PC less and less since a couple of years, so I really don't remember if I erased it at some point or is just that I misplaced it (I've tons of backup cds and dvds, but checking those is beyond my posibilities at this time). Sorry. :o

Have you tried asking your first request on sierrahelp?

Someone is bound to have saved it somewhere. ;)
