Hi Katsmom & danyboy!!

So good to see you over here !! Welcome to everyone from TAC forum.

I just found out tonight and asked about it in the General Discussion section. Was referred over here. It's a sad thing, but regardless of the controversy, head banging, and dissention among the troops at TAC, we were all part of a family with one common love of "Adventure Games". I for one think any (within reason) discussion is good. When people no longer bother to join a forum to be heard anymore, because it's so "bad", thats when they should close-up shop and go home. TAC had a LOT of members. GOOD members. There can't be that many people in a "family" without having different views and questions on just about everything. I hope they re-think their position, but if not, oh welllll!

"THANK YOU GAMEBOOMERS FOR TAKING IN ALL OF US "LOST SOULS" praise .

**Milee10**

P.S. danyboy, they have a spellchecker over here wink !

Milee10! It's so good to 'see' you, too!

*can someone kindly direct me to the SMILEYS around here...* *wink, wink*

Yes, I'm certainly a 'lost soul' right now; but glad to find some lost friends here.

Including both sent and received messages, I think I've lost over 500 Private Messages over at the TAC forum... *screams and tears her hair out*

I keep thinking about the youngest Nancy Drew forum fans... will they find the herinteractive forum, or remain 'adrift' forever...?

welcome everyone!!

Katsmom, there are two different ways to reply to a topic... either type in the white box at the bottom of the topic (the quick reply option) OR click on the beige Reply button which takes you to another screen where you can select smilies smile You can use them in the quick reply box too, but you must know how to type them out smile

10 posts and you can pick an avatar for yourself from the extensive selection, or link to your own. Have fun!!

Hugs

Tig wave

Ummm... okay, then I AM the only one who's up late around here.

Actually, I have just over two weeks of vacation left before I go back to work. And then, I'll be waking up at this time, rather than going to sleep... rolleyes

So this should be one of my last 'all night parties' for awhile.

Okay -- on to GAMES. My teenage daughter loves the SIMS. She'd play it a lot more often, if I'd just let her have the computer. *hehehe...

I just finished playing Dark Fall, and haven't started a new game yet. I have several sitting here, begging to be chosen. I mostly stay away from the newest games, and wait until OTHER people have played them first. I'm still catching up on a huge "black hole" in my life, when I didn't play adventure games for many years. I started out, though, in the mid-80's with the interactive text games on a Commodore 64 computer. eek Now, THOSE games were tough!

In a few weeks, I'll be doing the same: driving my own daughter to high school before going home to get ready for work. *sigh* Where has my vacation gone...?

It really is time for me to get some sleep

But I'll be back soon.

Welcome to all you guys! I think you will find this forum VERY different from the TAC one. I stopped going there due the "in-fighting" amoung various members. GB is the BEST! <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

YOU guys and gals are the best! Thank you for making me feel so welcome, at a time when I felt so LOST. wave

I'm deciding what to play next, among my group of games. I have Riven and Myst III: Exile (DVD versions, as I couldn't get my CDs to work on my XP -- and struggled all through Myst); CSI: I and II ; Law and Order II (already played the first one); and two TAC games that I anticipate tech problems with -- Schizm: Mysterious Journey (I) and Post Mortem. I bought a new version of Schizm to try, as the first one I tried kept crashing my computer to the 'blue screen of death' eek -- and Post Mortem isn't supposed to work with my Intel onboard graphics controller at all. So the last two games are "iffy" on my list.

I have more older games coming in the mail soon. When I go back to work, I won't have as much time to play -- so I'm pretty much set for the next YEAR.

My favorite games (so far) are Syberia I and II. I especially loved how they played on my XP with onboard GC, without problems! I've played all of the Nancy Drew games, having started playing them with my daughter (who still loves them, too). I've played Dracula: TLS, and will soon receive the first game of the series. Also: The Riddle of the Sphinx, The Omega Stone, The Mystery of the Mummy, Beyond Atlantis II: New Worlds Await You; Sanitarium (with great difficulty, likely due to my onboard GC); and Dark Fall. I think I may have left one or two games out, but... oh well. wink

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

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.

Milee and friends, I'm a little late getting down to this forum (it's been that sort of day! welcome to GameBoomers to all of you!!!

Milee, I don't think anyone ever answered you about those left- and right-facing arrows--they enable you to move from thread to thread without having to go back to the forum index every time. When you put your cursor on one, a little box will come up telling you whether it will take you to a newer or older thread...

Hi Katsmom and Milee. Ever since the TAC forum closed I've been wondering where you were. Hawka finally set me straight. I contacted her over on the Mystery Manor site and she reminded me of Gameboomers. She said that this was the best place to go for game help. And I'm glad to find you again.

I checked on the HerInteractive site to see if any of the Nancy Drew kids we knew were there. Didn't recognize a single name. I hope they made it ok.

Mind if I draw up a chair and set awhile? I need a place like this to go to since Tac closed.

Hello to all my fellow TAC refugees and everyone here at GameBoomers! Right now I feel a little lost, as I'm sure the rest of the TACers who were suddenly evicted do too. frown It's good to see some familiar names around! I also found alot of people over at Mystery Manor. I hope to get to know everyone here!

dannyboy,

No I didn't have a clue that TAC was closing. Strangely enough (looking back), I had started up a friendly dialog with one of the TAC staff when I asked for help on a order. We sent PMs back and forth, it was real nice. Then suddenly I never heard another word. It was the same weekend that "Aura" and "Missing" were mailed out. Could be a coincidence, but don't really think so. In my heart, I believe that at least "some" of the staff were also taken by surprise. Lay-offs don't require much notice. I'm guessing of course, but bet it's pretty close to the mark. We may never know for sure.

I joined-up over here because of unbiased information available on ALL adventure games, regardless of the publisher. Never dreamed it would become a new home. I'm happy here, just very NEW.

I'm having surgery on monday so will be out of the loop for awhile. I'll be back, even if I have to learn to type with my toes lol !!

Later!
**Milee10**

Hello guys! I'm registered at Mystery Manor, too, and doubt I'll be at either much but it's nice to know where to go to find everyone.

I'm very sad to return from my week hiatus to find that TAC closed down without a word to its loyal (though at times critical) members and fans.

Oh well.... A new day dawns.

Hello to all my TAC friends <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />
Nice to see some familiar faces

I have seen a couple of the ND kids at herinteractive. I think that they were a prety tight group and probably exchanged e-mails

Thank you GB for having spell check think

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.
Thank you for letting me know, nickie! So Post Mortem should play using my Intel chipset... <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

I also prefer the character interaction games, over the "lonely" games (great term for it!). I love to TALK, so I guess that makes sense. 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 again, syd. I've already played Sanitarium on my XP, and had terrible trouble. We had a long thread going about Sanitarium, on the TAC board. I posted about my endless game crashes while playing, and my creative 'tweaking' attempts that did no good, whatsoever! frown Inferno, I just realized that you're a member of GB. I tried to use your set-up for Sanitarium, but it didn't make any difference. My game crashed and crashed and crashed... well, you get the idea.

I really must believe that the problem I had was with the Intel integrated chipset and/or the driver -- which has recently been updated numerous times. I believe this because other members posted that they had no problem playing Sanitarium on their XPs with a 'real' video card.

I enjoyed ROTS and TOS, but my favorite games are the ones with human contact in them. I did love Sanitarium, despite my serious technical problems while playing it.

Syd, you mention a certain spot in Dracula: Resurrection (which I haven't yet played), where you couldn't allow your son to look. Do you (or anyone) remember a similar situation in DARK FALL? I was stunned by the unexpected and completely gratuitous PHOTOS in George's desk. It ruins what IMO would otherwise be a great adventure game for kids. And speaking of Dark Fall -- when the TAC lights went out, I'd just posted to ask if there were TWO versions of that game released? Because in MY version, I never got killed off -- not even in front of IT, when I made a mistake doing the 'trials'... Someone else posted that she HAD been killed off, while playing Dark Fall.

As for SCHIZM, well... it didn't sound like my favorite kind of game, so that ALSO keeps it at the bottom of the pile.

I didn't post which games I have coming in the mail yet; will save that for later! wink

Sorry about that Katsmom - I'm confusing what you played to what you haven't laugh

Those integrated video chips are a pain. I generally build my own computers but this last time bought one "off the rack" so to speak. It came with onboard sound and video and before I walked out of the store I had a stand alone video card in hand. Used to be all adventure games could be played on low end machines - not any more - the system specs are getting up there with FPS and RPGs. That's why I have a few computers sitting around me - one with XP, one with W98SE and my trusty old P133 with W95 and it's whopping one meg video card and SB16 thumbsup I get bored with just roaming around looking at stuff - I want to converse with people - find out what's going on in their world and yell at them for doing something dumb lol

That's okay, syd; even I can't remember sometimes what I've played! In a few weeks or so, I should have 14 adventure games in my UNPLAYED pile - eek - so as you can see, we have THAT in common, too!

So, syd -- can I join the dark side guild of "Not A Clue" who's game shelves runnuth over? laugh

Katsmom with only 14 games in your unplayed pile you are a mere baby - wait till you've been around us for a while evil We hang out in the RPG/Action forum. I'm a recent convert to said Dark Side of the gaming world (hence the "not a clue") - I dipped my toes into the murky waters of RPGs and found out I love them - lots of stuff to do, people to talk to, places to go to-ing and fro-ing (I love to go to-ing and fro-ing). Makes a nice change from adventure games.

Thanks, my unplayed pile has gotten considerably smaller since school let out and I'm not volunteering in my son's class room! By the way I can't find my smileys where are they or where have they gone? I'm so used to them being right in front of me! Anyway thanks for the great welcome. I'm so glad not be an orphan anymore. What is Gothic by the way? Right now I am getting ready to play Aura, already played Missing thought it was great. Pretty cool stuff going on in that one.

You see that's why the dark side is so insidious Katsmom - I used to be an "I refuse to play anything other than adventure games" person too - then one day this sneaky little game found it's way onto my hard drive and just like Myst 10 years earlier - I was hooked [sigh] I fear there is no hope for me - I now swing both ways whistle

I will say this for RPGs... they're widely available in every store I visit! Of course, I go to those stores looking for ADVENTURE games... but all I see are shelves full of RPGs and Action games.

So I can see the possibility of my breaking down one day, and taking one off the shelf. MAYBE. whistle

Playing more than one genre means never having to say you can't find a new game to play. happydance

RPGs do have fighting, but some of them are like a whole bunch of adventure games put together. Years ago I had no idea that some of the games I played were of a different genre, just thought they were adventure games with fighting. rolleyes A consistent favorite over on the RPG forum is Divine Divinity, that quite a few "adventure only" folks have played and enjoyed. Lots of help there too for it, should anyone want to give it a try. devil

I can never seem to get into my Nancy Drew game, I have had it a year and never go further and keep putting it on and taking it off. Is there something I am missing, like being more patient//

Nickie, you make a persuasive argument! wink

I'll keep Divine Divinity in mind, the next time I'm shopping for games to pile up on my dusty, 'unplayed' shelf... smile

Isn't it interesting that games with FIGHTING in them are more popular (in general) than games with peaceful, lovely environments in them...? think

Hey Katsmom and all the other refugees from TAC, isn't this a nice place and nobody picks on you, I love it. Only problem is there is so much going on that I don't get anything done. This thread is tempting me into the RPG games, Raj is now raving on them. A plus is I have my grandkids about, in case I have no clue as to what to do. Next step is to get a scared OMG console, the excuse is that the kids will use when they come and they don't have to drag theirs over. Plus I really really want to play Van Helsing, even if it sucks, does it suck?

Hi again, Tigger. Here I am, up all night again (where I am, anyway).

While the daughter's away, the mom will play (hehehe)

I've played all the Nancy Drew games. Trouble is, I don't REMEMBER much about them today. The kids in the TAC forum kept telling me to play them AGAIN... but I insisted there were all these NEW games I needed to play first.

So when I try to help with ND games, I generally have to consult a walkthrough.

Yes, it is interesting. Does it in some ways factor in dealing with everyday stress - either doing a zen thing and being calmed by having a peaceful environment, or releasing the pent up road rage by blasting away at baddies?

Is this actually true? Isn't The Sims the best-selling PC game of all time? And Myst must rank well toward the top.

It would be interesting to see a chart showing the ten best-selling PC games of all time.

Hi everyone!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around. Good to see some familiar characters here. Terrible thing about TAC. Helping people thru stuck points in their games is part of the enjoyment in adventure gaming for me. I already miss it.

Becky, you can kill people in the Sims too.... just get em to go for a swim and remove the ladders, make em cook when they have no skill points, get a guineapig....

Katsmom, I have all the ND's but only started playing them recently so I can remember most bits... especially the timed sequences!!!

Hi MBARI and MPGAME!

--- ---

to GameBoomers!

I'm glad you found this forum, where many former TAC board members have joined. It's been almost a week, and I still can't believe it...

MBARI, I agree with you. Helping others with their games is something I've always enjoyed doing. I've looked into the "Hints" forum here, and so far, I see most game questions are for games I haven't played yet. I also miss the Nancy Drew forum kids, though I couldn't help a lot in their forum, with my failing memory of the ND games.

Hopefully, we'll be able to help with game questions again here -- though we MAY have to start playing the newer games, LOL! smile

tigger -- so you're a fan of Nancy Drew games, huh? - - I keep telling the 'macho guys' that ND games aren't just for kids... or girls.

So where does one go around here, to find a discussion of Nancy Drew games? - -

My teenage daughter absolutely LOVES The Sims; but I haven't played it. I didn't know you could kill off your Sims characters! They're so funny when they move around, LOL! So if The Sims includes options for fighting among characters, and killing them off, that might be part of its charm (for some people, anyway). wink

MYST came out during a time when "action" wasn't yet popular, and we didn't have all those portable game devices. I haven't played URU, but I think it's a little LESS peaceful than the original? If I'm wrong, then let me know.

I should add that I also enjoy adventure games that are NOT peaceful; but I don't like the "action" sequences they put into some adventure games.

I'm sure some adventure games would be on a list of the 10 most popular games in gaming history -- but I don't know how many AGs would make it on a list of the CURRENT 10 most popular games. *sigh*

Hi guys,

I'm a big guy and i like ND games even if i find ND annoying, i like to put her in trouble on purpose LOL.

My youngest son love the Sims games he have all the expansion packs (except hot date who's not very appropriate for a kid)

looney4lab, to kill a Sims you don't take care of him, you don't give him food, entertainment etc.., he will get sick and die, you will have a nice tombstone, in or out of your house and if you don't take care of your kids, social services come and take them.

Danyboy, this is my first post over here, (I am your friend to whom you emailed this link; I changed my name from "Rainbow" to "Vertex").

I played the SIMS 3000 and either didn't do it right or didn't get the point. For one thing, I couldn't get the people large enough for me to see them so I could enjoy the game.

I adore all the MYST games, and have all but the very last one, (I am cheap and waiting on the price to drop).

I enjoy NANCY DREW games; I guess it must be my second childhood since I enjoyed her books when I was a kid back in the Paper Age.

I don't enjoy blood and gore, but I do understand about youngsters who kill off their SIMS. They like to feel the power and the control they don't have in real life. In my humble and often wrong opinion, that doesn't mean they are bad or gonna be bad, but that they have some issues they would like to get out of their lives.

Well, Happy Gaming!

Hi Vertex,

I answered your other thread

About the Sims, sometime they die, even if you do your best to take care of them and yes maybe some people like to kill them on purpose, my son was so happy when he had his first baby in the game, he got him in the bathroom LOL, it was too far to go see him and giving him the care he needed, social services came and took him away, he was very sad about this, after understanding how babies were coming in the game, he find a way to have him near him to take care of him.

I was thinking maybe we were getting "off topic" here... but we're talking about things getting "killed off" -- and the TAC forum certainly WAS... scared

And danyboy -- she wants you and your son to know that she has the "money cheat code" and has downloaded lots of 'extras' online (which I do know about, since I did the downloading...). Your son probably has all these goodies too; but if not, let us know! laugh

Schwab35, my daughter is very familiar with the kitchen fires. TEENS! eek

But I think the humorous 'death' scenes, like the one you described, are responsible for encouraging the ummm... 'knocking off' of SIMS' characters.

I need to get the new game that shh TAC has on the homepage right now. (The Sentinal) It looks really good. Also looking forward to Atlantis Evolutioon as well. Also waiting with baited breath for Dark Fall II (Light Out) If it is anything like the first one it should be pretty good. Loved Syberia 1 & 2 as well. I only have Aura to play now, I am running out of games to play here! praise

Thanks for the info., blsbet44. Is it for everyone, or just for AOL members?

Gigi6113, I can't identify with your pain. I have a pile of unplayed games on the shelf, and more unplayed games on the way...

Have you played all the OLD ones?

By the way -- re: Dark Fall: The Journal -- am I the ONLY one who was disappointed NOT to get killed off in that game? I mean, it's a scary game; and everyone ELSE got killed off; and you THINK you're in grave danger all the way through it... so was anyone else surprised (at least) that you couldn't get killed off?

Vertex, sim city 3000 isn't the same as the Sims...

As well as using 'rosebud' you can also create sims with skill points... in the create family screen, make em as kids first, then before you leave the screen, edit them and make em into adults smile

Tigger --

My daughter (the SIMS addict) wants to know if you have the "magic mirror" yet? She says: It maximizes your skill and personality points; your interests; your relationships; your mood; gives you optional job promotions... If you have The SIMS 'VACATION' pack installed before you download this "magic mirror" you also get tokens for prizes in the game. laugh

If by some chance, you DON'T have it yet... I'll look for the URL address to find it. wink

Margo -- yes, I still have your pictures online, and will send you the URL links again. They're edited to 80 x 80 pixels, which was the size in the TAC forum. Here at GB, the maximum size is 60 x 60 pixels -- but your pictures should still display. If your avatar looks blurry or needs more editing, I'll do that and upload new versions.

happydance Thanks for the explanation on the SIMS and the SIM CITY 3000! I was wondering (a) What was wrong with me. (b) Why couldn't I get the game to perform as others described.

Now question: I read "expansion packs" and in the early days, this meant you had to buy a certain game to start, then buy additions when you master the basic one. Which one should be first, or will any of them do? Which ones will NOT play well on XP?

And Danyboy, your son would certainly improve his English if he had the incentive of a certain lovely young daughter of Katsmom....... whistle

Vertex, my lovely young daughter won't even DISCUSS boys (yet)... lol

As far as The Sims go, my daughter has ALL of them; and we have an XP. No problems with XP, whatsoever. <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

She started with The Sims (original game). Each expansion pack was added to that game, which you must have if you ever need to re-install the whole thing. Some expansion packs must be installed before others, so if you later buy one that goes FIRST; well, then you have to do the "uninstall/reinstall dance"...

She tells me that Sim City 3000 (and we have 4000) is completely different. In that game you build cities (buildings), but you can't create the people. In the regular Sims games, you create characters and control every move they make. You also create homes for them, of course. And as recently discussed -- you can also kill your Sims people off (intentionally or not)...

My daughter is anxiously awaiting the release of the NEW Sims game -- Sims 2 due out by September 15th, they say. That will be an entirely NEW game, with (I'm sure) lots of NEW expansion packs to buy. laugh

<img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " /> Thank you and thank your daughter, Katsmom! Please don't think less of me if I confess, (we are all friends after all), that my introduction to base games with expansion packs was DUKE NUKEM. Now wait, before you delete me! This connection happened because he was a guest on COSMO'S COSMIC ADVENTURE, a story of a little alien boy who, with his parents, were on their way for a visit to Disney World on Earth for his birthday when their spaceship crashed on the Forbidden Planet and he was separated from his Mommie & Daddy. I got the DUKE NUKEM shareware, which was like an action cartoon, then one day bought DUKE NUKEM 3D. That literally nauseated me, so I begged whatever store that was to allow me to trade. It taught me a valuable lesson: ALWAYS check out the game with knowledgeable people before you get involved.

And Katsmom, I have known Danyboy for a couple of years now. If his son is as gentlemanly as he is, your daughter had better snap him up!

I've been away for a while so I missed all the new members coming on. Welcome everyone! This is a great board.

Thanks Glenna! I would have replied sooner but we just had a really LOUD clap of thunder and the 'puter rebooted itself.

Melia, when you said that I thought wow, storming there just like here, as kaboom went the thunder! Then had to laugh, as you're in Texas too! lol <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

Just want to take a moment to update everyone on the TAC Forum saga...

TAC has now completely changed their online Support pages for individual games. You can no longer go to a game's web page. Instead, you have to enter some information in boxes, and TAC decides what to tell you. Some previously offered patches are no longer available (having to do with a certain copy protection software that they never liked to discuss...) frown

Here's the NEW link, for TAC Tech Support online web pages:

http://www.adventurecompanygames.com/tac/support/kb_select.php
