Rosa, try asking Bets or somneone else that made the changes to send you a screenshot of the altered files so that you can compare them to yours and fix it. When you are coding a period or space can render it useless. You may just have left a space or deleted a space where needed.

Rosa, I think that would work, and it certainly would not hurt to try. wave

Let me check. I think I have this game downloaded. Not sure.
Be back.

-----------
Open -------\Around the World in 80 Days\Base folder.

Open the text file that is labeled: 'level'.

Use a text file program, so that you can edit.

You will see the different levels.
For example the first one;
- <Levels>
- <Level name="level_1.1" time="650" chips="0123" sun_inc4="0.01" sun_inc5="0.01" sun_inc6="0.01" tip_time="10" qMusor="50" bonusLevel="false" addBonusK="0.7">

The level_1.1 must be the first book and then the first puzzle.

Next comes: time="650".
I think this is what Nikki is describing that you add a number to make it to thousands. For example add 6 before 650 to make 6650.
Then it will increase your time.

Then save the text file. Save and load. See if that works.

I've changed the number of lives but can't find anything in the 'gameinfo' file that looks like "time="

these are the only references to time:

levelTime="63" timeToLevel="1140" sunEnergy="40" totalTime="37650

can you help me fix this, please

Menahune, I don't have this game but did you try increasing the level time?

Be sure you make a copy of the file before you do anything to it though, just in case luck

I just happened to be stuck Level 78 of this older game (which I'd never been able to finish) myself when Rosaboomie posted, so I've been following this thread with interest. I really appreciate the suggestions with respect to adding time and, after doing so, was finally able to complete the game.

Instead of being gratified, however, the entire experience has left me feeling somewhat disturbed. In short, I feel like a cheat!

That's not to say, however, that I don't absolutely believe the modification is necessary to complete this game. But it just seems to me that a player SHOULDN'T have to do that.

I'm not opposed to a game requiring either great speed or an elegant and/or complex strategy. But it seems to me that completion should be within the realm of reasonable possibility, and the programming on this one just seems to be off. The game was so well designed, from the music to the graphics to the integrated storyline, I'm just really disappointed that they dropped the ball there. To go from horrible frustration to guilty completion is neither satisfying nor consistent with an enjoyable game experience!

The good thing that's come out of this, however, is that I now have a real appreciation for the many games, including some that do not fall within the time management category, that provide exactly the right amount of challenge. I didn't recognize the art involved in this, and I'm definitely adding it to the list of things I look for and appreciate in a game!

GPN, It is possible to complete this game. At least to Journey 3, level 81. I did. when you pass Journey 1, they add blockers to add to the fun. I played it over and over for months. But it is possible. By the way I just turned 79. Never did CP games till last year. Lillian

Duh - I know I am being real dumb here, and will probably regret asking this question - But what is GGOTD??

Having second thoughts about your advice on going into the level folder, MaG. That will not help my current problem which is I have meddled with the gameinfo file and I think it has got corrupted.

Anyone care to take up Ana's suggestion and let me have a screenshot of what this folder should look like please?
