You should try the DVD version of Schizm.

Hi Jenny100. I'd love to, but I've never been able to find it in local stores. I prefer to go out and buy my games the old-fashioned way. smile

But I've begun to realize that's not always possible for adventure gamers. rolleyes

I've had games crash many times to my Windows desktop -- but this is the only game that actually crashed my computer (repeatedly). I'm hopeful that the newer release won't do the same, but the game is still sitting at the bottom of the pile.

I've never seen it in local stores either. But if I insisted in buying all my games in local stores I wouldn't have 5% of the games I've bought online.

I know some copies of the CD version of Schizm shipped with bad CD's, and it sounds to me like that's what you had.

Schizm DVD is hard to find anymore (I think - but I haven't looked in a while either). I loaded the DVD version on my laptop and it plays fine - but I didn't play much of it so it could crash later on. One day I will get brave enough to tackle it laugh

Post Mortem - forget it on an onboard chipset - it loaded fine - opening movie played fine but once the game started the characters moved soooooooooo slow it was pathetic ('course as jerky as they moved that might be an improvement) lol I'm going to see if I can put more RAM to the video card and see if that helps but so far it's a no go.

You have a bunch of great games on their way Katsmom. I loved Sanitarium. That game will probably be more of a problem with XP than the type of card since it's an older game. I haven't tried to run it on XP yet. I thought the first Drac game was terrific - I had to throw my body over the monitor at one part when my son came in the computer room, however (those that played the game know what I'm talking about) wink I also loved Riddle of the Sphinx and to a lesser extent The Omega Stone and I loved Dark Fall.

As to Riven and Exile - both are beautiful games, espceially Exile - they're just not my personal favorites. I haven't played the two Law & Orders nor the two CSI's - I really need to - love the tv shows. Maybe when I'm done with Outcast I'll start them since I really, really need to widdle down my unplayed stack - it's starting to get embarrassing blush

Hi and thank you all for the welcome! I think we'll all be happy over here. There are a lot of pluses and extras in this forum. Ready made avatars (thank God), great smileys, don't have to cater to any one game publisher, built-in game activities (I'm not any good at), and best of all, a WONDERFUL group of people!!

Katsmom. That "void" you feel will disappear in short order. All things happen for a reason, and I already think that this forum, and the closing of the "other" one was a blessing in disguise happydance . I'm going to look at this in a positive manner.

The only thing I'm having a problem with is figuring out how everything works! Already printed out your FAQ section, but have a little question about some of the buttons. Humor me blush .

There's a Topic & Reply button on both top & bottom of the page (tan color). Does it matter which one is used? I noticed that by clicking on "Topic" so as to have easy access to "smileys" and such, that it turns into a "new" post, instead of staying in one thread (I had meant to stay in another post about TAC Forums, when I ended up creating this NEW one). Does that mean the "QuickReply" box has to be used if a person wants to remain in a single thread?

Next. There is "close"--"feature topic"--"move"--"delete" buttons. How and when are these used? Don't want any accidents to happen to me or to someone else because of not knowing what I was doingconfused. Can I experiment with all these little things without ending up with a post nobody can read eek .

Finely. What is the button with the "& down arrow?

Okay, I'm done with the stupid questions.

Thanks!
**Milee10**

Hi Milee10,

right, the topic button starts a new topic, in the discussion forum. The beige reply buttons allow you to respond to a topic and has clickable smilies, if you use the quick reply box you have to type them in.

The close, feature, move and delete are used by us Mods smile I seem to remember from my member only days that if you click on any of those, it says you don't have the authority to use them smile

Oh and you need a space after your words for the smileys to work properly... just edited your post so you got em wave

syd and Salar. The pleasure is all mine!

Thank you tigger! Still didn't tell me what the (") is with the down arrow, after "edit"--"quote" at the top of our replies.

Thanks again!
**Milee10**

P.S. Sorry syd, I missed your last question. I'm in Billings, but grew-up in Helena. Moved here in 1970. Helena seems a lifetime ago (guess it WAS). <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

Hi Milee, danyboy and katsmom, and a belated welcome! It's great to have you here with us.
wave
Katsmom, I have an integrated Intel Graphics chip (never again), 64 MB SDRAM, but I didn't have any problem at all with Post Mortem.It wasn't one of my favorites, but it did have some different sort of puzzles to play, and there were different paths to follow to get to the end, which I did like. As I like the character interaction games as opposed to what I call the "lonely" games, I liked it best of what you had to play next.

to all the new members!

Katsmom (or anyone else), Schism dvd is available through Amazon. You can get for as low as $14 + shipping, or brand new for $20. If you order $25 worth of games from Amazon the shipping is free. Amazon can be a little slow, but I have never had a problem with my orders.
