Looney is right on how to change the number of lives, but I never managed to find out how to get extra time.

Rosaboomie,

Look back through this thread for a message from me. There is a different file call "level" that is you can change the time allotment for each level. If you increase the number into the thousands you will have plenty of time for that level. You need to change the time for each level and then save the file. You should have plenty of time then.

It worked for me.

Hey you guys, I can not find the file you all are talking about. I opened Word Pad then opened 80 Days, opened base. There was no file called "gameinfo" Am I doing something wrong that I can't find it?

Bets

Edit: Question. For all of you who were able to set the time and levels, did you buy the game or download the free game? I downloaded mine as a free game of the day.

Flutist - Go into your folder called Around the World in 80 Days, and then open up the folder named Base. Lots and lots of subfolders in this folder set out in alphabetical order. Go about half way down the page and you will see a sub folder called gameinfo.xml. Then right click and it should say "Open with". Hope this helps.

HOWEVER I tried to change the timer and lives this morning and oops....now I am unable to play the game. The game fully loads but it just will not play. I think I may have somehow corrupted this sub-folder. With hindsight, maybe I should have copied this folder before I messed around with it. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!

Any ideas anyone - other than downloading the whole darn game yet again, as I am now over my 1GB per month allowance!!

Well done Flutist - I knew you would get there LOL - It also took me a while to find this game info folder.

Have you got to the part in the puzzle yet with those annoying stone walls??? You will have great fun with them, especially in the levels beyond Day 70!

I think I am on level 51 or 52. I need to increase my time though. Did increase the number of levels.

Did you get through it on your own, or did you manage to change the time?

I just tried to do a Restore, Looney, but sadly it didnt work. I wonder if I can copy the gameinfo folder from my laptop to my desktop, and just substitute the file??
