Actually, no I never did. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :cry --><img src=http://users.domaindlx.com/broomie/cry.gif ALT=":cry"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Things got pretty hectic and I kind of forgot that I had it. I'll have to make sure that I check it out now that I've been reminded. Now if I can only remember where I put it on my hard drive... <p></p><i></i>

I got to the place where you're supposed to go into the doctor's office, but it wouldn't let me. Bug in the program, it seems, since I did everything else and even resorted to a walkthru.<br><br>Did anyone else have this problem? Maybe I should try playing the game again, from the beginning. <p></p><i></i>

Hmm if your playing using ScummVM then I doubt its a bug (although it could be) you probably havnt done something minor like talk to Joey (your robot friend) or looked at something or did something.<br><br>Best thing to do is look/use/talk to everyone and everything lol even try all your inventory items on everyone including Joey.<br><br>Hope that helps! <p><div align="left"><embed width="320" height="226" src="http://www.eternal-anubis.com/Images/sig/Neo.swf"></div> <br> Visit <a href="http://www.eternal-anubis.com" target="_new">Eternal Anubis</a> - A work in Progres by Vamp.</p><i></i>

I downloaded it a long while ago when they made it freeware. Before it was freeware, I could never get very far because it always crashed in a certain spot. Maybe now I'll try the CD version and hope it works for me. I just gotta find some time. Always wanted to play this one. <p></p><i></i>

I downloaded BaSS and got a readme file, sky.dsk, and sky.dnr. The readme says to unzip the game, but sky.dsk doesnt seem to be a valid archive.<br><br>Can someone please tell me what I need to do? <p></p><i></i>

Thanks, Angelus! Seems like a good game so far and the speech is impressive for the small file size. <p></p><i></i>

I thought the voice acting in BASS was really good especially considering the small file size, I had no probs with it when I played it.<br><br>I also have the original BASS and FOTAQ CD's in my collection!! <p><div align="left"><embed width="320" height="226" src="http://www.eternal-anubis.com/Images/sig/Neo.swf"></div> <br> Visit <a href="http://www.eternal-anubis.com" target="_new">Eternal Anubis</a> - A work in Progres by Vamp. <p> "These chicks don't even know the name of my bandBut they're all on me like they wanna hold handsCause once I blow they know that I'll be the manAll because I'm the lead singer of my band."</p><i></i>

Oh yeah. The voice acting in BASS is (mostly) fine. I was talking about FOTAQ. And it's not the audio quality, either. I'm impressed that they got all the dialog into a few dozen megabytes. It's the voice actors. They're absolutely awful. <p><!--EZCODE CENTER START--><div style="text-align:center"><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END--><br><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="font-size:xx-small;">Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.</span><!--EZCODE FONT END--></div><!--EZCODE CENTER END--></p><i></i>
