duh I guess I woke up in a new world where I can't spell. Or maybe it was the eggnog, but I didn't know it was spiked. But I'll blame it on old age. blush

rotfl Well I can't BRAAGS I thought I had a problem with buying more games when I haven't even played the ones I got till I found every one else does the same thing on gameboomers. So I feel better about that cause I'm just a beginner compared to some of you. praise

Your adventure game buying habit is perfectly normal -- absolutely nothing to worry about. As someone with total objectivity in the matter, let me reassure you! Don't even give it a second thought. wink

Hi folks,

One technical problem with 9: The Last Resort that hasn't been discussed is that it doesn't recognise above 32MB RAM. So if you have more memory than this the installation process tells you you don't have enough memory frown

In the past you could send your original disk in to Infogrames/Atari and get a replacement but they don't seem to be offering that service any more.

Here is the FAQ from the publishers website: you can email support by clicking the button at the bottom of this web page.

Cheers

Gordon

One solution is to put this phrase....

"Installing 9: The Last Resort on a Newer System"

...into Google and see what pops. It should bring up an article which details which newer systems can run 9 and a link to a zipped installation of critical game files which enable anyone who has a system which can run 9 and who has a 9 CD to play the game.

That's the old version. Newer versions don't have the problem. Of course you can't tell from the box which version it's going to be.

Actually, you can. There were a total of four versions of 9 released. It's just easier to toss in the CD and see if it loads. If it doesn't, looking for the phrase mentioned above will solve the problem. For all systems except XP Pro. No joy there. Ever.

I have a box which originally had the old version (I mailed in the original CD for the exchange) and I have a box that came unopened with an updated version of the game and both boxes look identical. So in my experience, you can't tell from the box.
