i thought this ^^ had stopped.

i could just post a positive quote from one of the other reviews inreply, but it would achieve nothing.


I understand you dont like the game... I do however, and there will be others out there who also enjoy it!

But the question is: Who shows mercy and install it for you? I would do it, if i could. Only to stop your begging for it.

As usual it's all a matter of taste! But Giana Sisters the worst platform game? But as long as you don't say Top Banana is the best platform game there's still hope.

A last funny thing i couldn't resist:

You need an extra disk for save states, formatted in the special Gonzo DOS format.

i dont like Super Mario either... no surprises i think GGS is poor-handling, horrible looking, un-needed and un-wanted clone, for which the games greatest feature is the cracktro music. i wouldnt expect everyone to agree me is the difference here.



Retro-Nerd: if forming a sensible arguement in-favour of a slave, defending a games un-needed belittling and bringing to attention something which may otherwise go un-noticed is "begging" - then that's fine for me.... its better than just writing "pleeeease" in the biggest letters EAB allows


and whats so unusual about a custom formatted save-disk?



funnily enough, im not expecting a slave out of all this any time soon, if this is the kind of hatred that is encited by a single request.

It's always funny to tease you a little, because i like your serious passion in defending lousy games.

And yes, there will be a WHDLoad patch someday.

Gonzo-Dos sound funny, imho.

The best and only reason to create a slave for a game is that it doesn't have one already

Have you played it, girv? I assume you like the slow, jerky and ugly graphics, the crappy controls, the useless mini radar......

Good argument.

after KG sent me some generic installer stuff to try out (file and disk-image slaves) which he'd used on the Croak installer, i thought i'd have a go at trying to make a slave for this.


alas, even the cracked-to-dos version refused to work. (exitting after the crappy cracktro) whilst the disk-image version still tried to access the floppy drives before quitting out.


im beginning to lose hope on ever getting an installer for this mis-understood gem.

glad to be a source of amusement to you Galahad.

at least i bothered to try and do it myself, which most people probably wouldnt have.
