Hi.  I recently upgraded my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and I’ve noticed a few minor issues with “Entombed”.  When the game starts, I get a spoken message that the selected voice is unavailable, and to go to “Preferences” to change it.  I went there and the settings I wanted were still selected.  One of my characters has a negative number of ability points in their status section.  Has anyone else come across this?  I know that “Entombed” is no longer in development.  When I originally sent this message through my third-party E-mail client, I received an "Undeliverable" notification.
 
Thanks,
 
Louise

Hi all, just wondering if somebody can email me the email to send messages to the entombed chat group because I’ve deleted the email which I had written in a document and can’t email the group.

Hello.

I think that I can partially answer your question. I don't believe
that the voices available in 7 are still available in 10. Windows 10
has, in my opinion, some better voices to pick from. I run my Entombed
in a Windows 7 virtual machine, which is basically a way of running 7
on a computer that's not Windows 7 (I currently have an Apple). The
voice that is standard, Microsoft Anna, has thankfully been
discontinued, so I think it would force you to choose another one.

Hi.  I agree that Windows 10 has better voices, and that "Microsoft Anna" is gone.  When I went into "Preferences", it indicated that "Microsoft David" was the current selection.  That's interesting because I have JAWS set as my synthesizer.

Thanks,

Louise

Hey not sure how this stuff works but I tried to download entombed on windows 10.  I went and downloaded the 2 links from driftwood. I get a voice that says error.  I use to have an old account on my old computer.
