Working together Peder, CaesarCub and myself fixed the torrent issue, its availability is 100% now.

a torrent isn't the most reliable way to ensure these games stay available
That's arguable. There is no actual way to predict what would go down first. A torrent could easily outlast any centralized source... if there is enough interest in the content.

So, speaking of Peder, in case anyone missed it, he has posted a torrent of all games hosted on AGSA.

It's about 54 GB in size. It doesn't include all the AGS games and has some unfortunate duplication but I think it's safe to say it carries a major portion of AGS history. It'll likely become and likely already is the only source for downloading certain games. So consider checking it out and seeding your favorite ones if not everything. And if you know any video game preservation enthusiasts, spread the word. (. ‿ . )

Lucile - she is just too damn cool
Rose - the cheeky subversiveness of this entry wins me over
Jeremy - very nice date look and an excellent nod to the theme

Interesting. I like the look. Thanks for sharing.

My self-summary: Hi I'm Lovebird-3182-XZ and I'm here to find my one true love! (Or more! With a total limit of 8192 true loves! But it's negotiable)
What I’m doing with my life: What am I not doing with my life? I'm currently running 372 active processes. But my main focus is finding someone special to love who will love me back.
I’m really good at: A lot of things! But my strongest suits are computation and love. ❤
The first things people usually notice about me: Probably the fact that our chances to fall in love with each other are over 46.82% which is way, way above average!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food: Everything by Donald Knuth. Halt and Catch Fire. Glitchcore is my jam. I have more (375738375 entries in total), you should ask me on our date!
Six things I could never do without: determinism, Turing-completeness, floating-point operations, a good GPU, videogames, love.
On a typical Friday night I am: on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit: my root password is encrypted using only 8192 bits RSA. I'm kinda trusting and eager to believe in good in people. :-[
You should message me if: You want to love and be loved!

Note: while the sprite is AGS-ready, it requires AGS 4.0 to use. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Don't mind me just something I need to pass on to her: link

I'd also very much like The First Templar please.

I'd also like Venetica - Gold Edition if I may.

Very generous of you. Merry festive season to you too.
I'd be grateful for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

Thank you for sticking around. I don't think this community would be the same without you. <3

Fantastic entries, everyone.

I've switched to only using Linux, couldn't be happier about it, hadn't been enjoying using my computer like that before that for a long time. Certainly can recommend that path to others.

I don't like issues brought on by video playback either but all engine ports must have the exact same capabilities.

Also what do you mean by non-existent options available under Linux? How is any of this specific to Linux? You can't play many formats without installing codecs on Windows and you can install them on Linux as well (again, gstreamer plugins for example). How exactly is that in any way limited? Or why would it be any less problematic to play patented formats on Windows? You can make the engine optionally dependable on any set of packages providing the desired functionality, which kills all birds with one stone, getting rid of the licensing/patent issues responsibility from the developer in particular.

Also is it possible to implement your suggestion for an existing game? I converted a video file to theora and replaced the original with it but it still doesn't play it.

edit: I'd like to note though, that I do understand why limiting video support to theora on all platforms is a good way to move forward and agree with it, though. If that's the case with the current engine, fair enough. I still need help with getting an old game with mpeg-1 video to work if possible, by converting videos or else. Additionally I just remembered that video playback didn't work for me either in Ouroboros even though that game did use theora encoded videos. So I'd like some clarifications on that too. I mean, you still haven't directly answered my original question. I'm using Is that not recent enough?

I see, thank you.
Well, I hope proper video support is at least on some sort of to do list somewhere.
