Hi Nickie!

That's great news about Wrath of the Gods in XP!!

And I'm glad you agree about the campy-feel comparison to Crystal Skull. It gets kind of silly and ludicrous at times but it's also a whole lot of fun. There's that sense of, "We're playing a game here," that just adds to the general atmosphere. grin

Thanks for reminding me about the game Marian. I had a lot of fun with it! Loved the part with the snake and with Medusa. Not only is it a hoot to play, but it's educational too - what a great way to teach folks about mythology. I wonder if the developers have done anything else gamewise - do you know?

They don't mention any other games on their website, so it looks like maybe Wrath of the Gods is it, although I don't know for sure. We definitely need more games like it. smile

Hi smile

I just HAD to install Wrath of the Gods after reading this thread lol and I have it on my WIN95 machine - apparently working perfectly grin

But ....

I don't know what to type when I want to save. It's one of those really old save systems and I have forgotten how they work blush

Can someone (maybe Nickie ?) help me out, please ??

Cheers.

I had to replay a huge chunk of it because I couldn't figure it out at first either. blush There probably is a simple way, but what I did was change the part in the second block to show it going to the C drive rather than the D drive. Then it accepted me writing in the first block. Does that make sense?

Hi nickie smile

Guess not !! lol

The game appears to be playing directly from the CD - and my CD Drive on this old WIN95 machine is "E".
I have two other drives - "C" and "D" but can't find any Wrath files in any of them.

If I look at the drive options in that box at the "middle bottom" of the save screen, all three drives DO show but changing to C or D still does not allow me to save. I get a pop-up that says :
"Be sure to save to an unlocked volume."

I actually don't even know what I should type in the "file name" box, either.
Upto now I have tried .... start*.txt .... Is that the right format ??

All I can remember about this old way of saving is that (I think) the name you give to the save can only be 8 letters long ??

I am so dumb !! duh

Do you think you can help ?? Or should I go to the Glitches Board ??

Cheers.

Try leaving out the *
When you try to save the game, does it suggest start*.txt or *.txt as a save name?

Yes, probably 8 letters plus the extension (.txt or .sav or whatever), though some old games don't need an extension.

lol Yes, I would have suggested asking in glitches instead of asking technically inept me - but glitches came to you! Mine asks for a .txt file.

Mad, you are NOT dumb!! and I think I know what the problem is, because this stumped me for a bit too. When it gives that message about the volume problem, look over to the right-hand side of the save screen and you need to change it to your C: drive there; I, too, was trying to change to C: on the bottom, and that didn't work. Then just go ahead and type in a name for your saved game.

Hi All smile

Thanks for the help .... I have managed to save a game and have tested that it works properly.
Changing the drive to C and not putting the * in front of the txt in the save title did the trick bravo

I do have to change the drive every time I launch the game, otherwise I can't see my saves, but that's no big deal grin

However .... One last question, if I'm allowed, please ??

My saves are appearing each as a separate file on Desktop. This could lead to a VERY crowded Desktop if I am allowed unlimited saves lol
So will it be OK if I create a new folder in Win Explorer and move all except the latest save into it - at the end of each play session ??

Your help is much appreciated thanks

Cheers.

That should work. If it doesn't, you can always put them back.

Hi nickie smile

Yes, I am !! It is so reminiscent of early graphic adventuring.
And, as with The Crystal Skull, Americanisms abound lol

I can report, too, that moving the saved games from Desktop to a "created" folder - apart from the latest save - works wonderfully bravo

Cheers.
