Re: Gallery of Witchaven box/jewel case/CD cover art

Brilliant! I have WH 2 big box and the softkey compilation, but I can't get my emulators to work with the cd detection routine, the demos run ok with Virtual PC 2007

Re: Tekwar doesn't recognize palette changes made to tiles

I'm thinking that it's probably not an insurmountably difficult technical hurdle for people who are used to changing and adding palettes to the other build engine games; it's just that tekwar doesn't really attract the same degree of interest.

Hi there, First of all, I'd like to express my deep satisfaction and excitement over the fact that this site and board exist. I'm one of those (not that many people?) who actually think the Witchaven demo is brilliant, especially the light shading work. I remember buying Wh 2 and meeting the bug, my...
