You should be able to get around that by running in windowed mode, put "window" at the end of the command line in a shortcut (like "c:\program files\stockboy\stockboy.exe window" for example). It will be in a little window then, but it should work! It seems your video card doesn't want to do 640x480x256 color mode.

It should give that error if it actually can't put your video card into 640x480x256, which I seem to recall WAS something I encountered years ago - some video cards are just too fancy for such a thing. Can't imagine why that would impede windowed mode though. The good news is that you shouldn't have that problem with Supreme WIth Cheese if you want to play that. The bad news is I'm not sure how to fix it for Kid Mystic beyond the things you have tried. Someone else might have an idea? For the most helpful people, check out our discord (link on my website on the About page), where the real knowledgeable people sit.
Weapon Lock doesn't do that, it prevents you from picking up weapons which will replace your existing weapon (it "locks" you to your current "weapon"!). It sounds like you have some kind of rogue input. Maybe a gamepad that's laying under your desk with a button pressed? Although if he doesn't start throwing until you hit a button, that's not it. Or accessibility features - I believe there is a windows feature that will make CTRL and SHIFT be toggles instead of holds. Whatever the cause, I'd start by going into key config and changing the key for weapons to something else and see if that resolves it.
You need to buy it in the Spismall. I don't remember which store it's in, and the stores change their stock each time you reload the world... so shop around! There's a lot of other good stuff in there too.
Right click on the shortcut to the game, choose "Properties" and the line Target will look something like this: ["C:\Program Files\Amazin\Amazin.exe"]. Add the word window to the end of that line, after a space. If that line is in quotation marks like my example, you want to be outside the quotation marks. So you end up with: ["C:\Program Files\Amazin\Amazin.exe" window]. Then hit OK and it should work!
Of course your actual folder names will vary, don't change what you have.
It's not likely, I like to do new things (I did remake Robot Wants It All though). Sequels maybe. There's not a lot of order to anything, other than the numbered serieses where you can guess the order! They do have release dates listed though if you want to see them in the order they came out (doesn't seem like itch.io allows you to sort by that though).
There's not really an engine. Just made from scratch. Used the MGL engine, and then I think SDL in later ones, or some other things, but those aren't "game engines" they're just graphics engines. All the game code is homegrown.
Yes, the best Fantasy Role Playing Game On The PC did come out in its own big box! I have one on my shelf. It's from back when game boxes were BIG, maybe 8"x11" or something, and an inch thick. With cool embossed shiny art on the front. Good luck finding one.
That is exactly how it is supposed to work. You can press ALT-TAB if you need to use your mouse elsewhere. It is after all supposed to be a full-screen game!
No, it only has one resolution. But it normally runs fullscreen, so it shouldn't be small. Just don't use the "window" command line and it should fill your screen nicely.
You could just upload them to any old file sharing site (mediafire I think is one name? I have no idea, never used one...), and then share the link right here for people to find.
