Thanks Nikki!

I have been on the game info folder and I could find nothing about lives in it. I am on my Vista laptop. Maybe I might have more luck with the XP trying to change the number of lives. But I did try your hint about changing the time on the level folder and it worked! I was able to get Day 49 done in which I had already lost a couple of lives trying to get it done.

The timer was running but real slow. All I did was double the first number on each level in wordpad on "time ="

You're welcome! I haven't had any trouble finishing a level since I did that. It doesn't even matter that I have tons of lives. I seriously doubt that I'll need any of them. smile

Have fun!

You are so right Nikki, it doesn't matter how many lives you have if you have to keep starting over again and again. You can't progress in the game, you are still stuck, starting over and over, waiting for the exact right conditions to happen. With the normal timer, it is too hard to finish the level and becomes totally frustrating. I wish all game developers would understand that the timer needs to be an option for ones that enjoy being timed. For some that is fun, and that is fine. For me, it is total frustration.

To me a timer is like reading a book and being timed. No matter where you are, when the timer goes off, you have to restart the book. I can't concentrate on the book and enjoy it for worrying I am going to have to start all over again. And it has absolutely NO reason to be timed in the first place.

Thanks again Nikki for finding the timer option! wave

Hello Nikki, I have just spent 3 hours trying to add time & it still doesn't work. I found "level" went through & added a 4 to the beginning of each level---now what? Do I save? If so it won't let me. Keeps saying " cannot create this level" or "do not have permission to change"
Also I cannot find anywhere where it says "Lives" If I could just add time I might not need them.
Please ,could you walk this 70yr old dumb computer-ilit through this. Thank you very much

Okay, I do need some help. I am stuck on level 49. Tried to find the file gameinfo, but didn't see it. I need to get more time. Can someone help me further. P.L.E.A.S.E.

Bets, are you talking about this?
Quote:
For those of you who need more time (I have XP), go into notepad and following the same path as you did to change the number of lives, choose the file called "level". This files contains information on each level including the amount of time you are given. Where it says "time=400"(or something close), add a number in front like another 4 "time=4400". When I did this I noticed the timer moved extremely slow and finished a level before the timer seemed to even move.


menauhune, are you still stuck?

Nope, haven't played that one yet--but I wanted to check. I know we do have members who have finished the game so hopefully, one of them will stop in.

Bets, I've never played around in game files so I would be loath to tell you how. Have you asked the computer to search for a File named "level"?

I found this from a link on the first page:
Quote:
ok that is easy for this game.

go to C:\My Games\Around the World in 80 Days

inside that there is a folder called "base"

inside that folder is a file called "gameinfo.xml"

open that file with something like word pad or notepad.

and find your profile name and then look for "lives=" and change the number of lives.

save and exit and go to start game.

have fun with those lives you will need them.


This should be the general area where you can add more time. Yu would look for time as opposed to lives. Have you already tried that?

Menahune, I still can't find any help for you on the web. luck
