      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. Backer Blu-ray Production Status

    I can't say that I like the bowed top and bottom, it makes it impossible to make the box stand upright. Didn't know this was a feature of the DoTT box. Anyway, for this reason the Death Gate box will continue to have its place on my nerd shrine instead. As was already mentioned the inlay that holds the blue-ray slipcase in its place is very easily teared. It happened before I barely touched it. Otherwise I'm very happy! The small art prints are beautiful, as is the slipcase! And the box is, too, even if I can't give it a prominent place in my room. As is so often with Double Fine, you give reasons to complain about but mostly make up for or even exceed expectations in other ways. Still the Kickstarter I'm happiest with!
  2. Reply from Humble about possible reasons for the problem- They are not completing their download and are trying to play a corrupted file. Their browser is trying and failing to play the videos and they should right click and save as. Earlier this week our CDN shifted the way they did things and so we had some odd down time for some downloads, but that should be resolved now. My guess is the culprit is #3. I never reported back to say that the links work again. But they do! Well, already since I saw the post of yours prior to this one. ^^
  3. When I try to download some of the new videos on Humble I just receive the error "Resource Not Found". Specifically, this concerns the Mnemonic and Steed Team videos and the Audio Team Round Table one.
  4. You can support JP LeBreton! =]

    It wasn't his decision to stop working on the game, anyway.
  5. Is that knot puzzle driving anyone else crazy?

    The implementation of the puzzle has some problems, yeah.
  6. Is that knot puzzle driving anyone else crazy?

    What can I say? I solved the puzzle as (probably) intended. I guess another set of eyes helped. For example I didn't recognize for one diagram that "pull the finger" was its right description, but when my friend pointed this out to me, it became obvious. Anyway, since you managed to save scum you didn't run into the bug. That one is described as a cup. I don't remember the exact description.
  7. Yeah, I really forgot about the AF2014 blu-rays! I dunno why they took so much longer to make than the AF2012 ones?
  8. Is that knot puzzle driving anyone else crazy?

    Yeah, that explains why I couldn't figure out a correct choice on my second try, for which I didn't choose to automatically teleport either (because I didn't realize that a certain dialogue option would do that). Still, apart from the annoying backtracking this was a fun puzzle, especially to solve with a friend together.
  9. Broken Age getting good reviews so far

    He got blinded by his own self-righteousness. Quite a shame, I loved his writing back in the day, when Kieron was still part of RPS. But in the last few years his writing got progressively worse.
  10. When will you play ACT 2?

    I voted for "The first break I get" since I have to take care of a lot of organizational stuff at the moment. But the truth is also that I have to wait for a friend to have time since we plan to play Act 2 together. But he has to finish Act 1 first, too. Which he will do at my computer. Hopefully he won't leave me hanging.
  11. This game is so good

    I hope it is, too. Richard Cobett und John Walker are rather unenthused about Act 2, and their complaints remind me of the situation with Syberia 2, where people who played the first one also complained that the puzzles were too easy. The developer's attempt to make the puzzles more difficult made the second installment much worse! But well, for BA Act 2 there are other more enthusiastic reviews out there. I will make my own opinion about Act 2 soon enough. ^^
  12. Perfect, now it's a tie, 334 votes for each. So I guess both options have to be produced now? Edit: Oh wow, I should have paid attention, it seems like it has been a tie for a few times now. Not only can't you decide Double Fine, we can't either!
  13. HYPE

    The new trailer makes me super hyped. The few shots we see of Act 2 look really intriguing!
  14. Oh my god, the launch trailer...Tim snuck in this line about Alex being Shay from the future just as a red herring, right? Right??? Because of all the speculation that went in this direction? I'm sooo excited. Better watch the documentary episode now. Thanks Spaff for the update and 2PP for the video goodness! ^^ Edit: Holy shit, that's a long episode!
  15. I also think it's an out of place line without further context that makes sense of it, for the reasons you gave, KestrelPi.
