Hi smile

lanlynk ..
I don't apply "real life" rules to games. Otherwise there might be nothing suitable to play laugh

oldman ..
Yes. I'm looking forward to getting on better with the game now.
I, too, was shocked to discover though that I had to register with Steam to play it !!
[Mine is a DVD version also - from Amazon.]
No mention of it in the blurb when I was looking at purchasing.
[And after months of my studiously avoiding getting entangled with Steam at all costs rolleyes ]

Manxman ..
I don't count my game play in mere hours. It takes me MONTHS to get through an RPG lol

Hi everyone. I just wanted to join in and say that I'm happy for you Mad that you're discovering this wonderful game! I think I've played it about 3 times so far and I LOVE it with all of my heart. smile Now reading about your adventures, I think I might start it up again---LOL.

I do have a question though for any and all Skyrim players. My regular computer is boxed up because I'm moving so I've been using my laptop. Do you guys know if I can play Skyrim on a laptop? (I know....I'm impatient....lol)

Thanks so much,
Tracy smile

MAD says: "I don't apply "real life" rules to games. Otherwise there might be nothing suitable to play"

Too true. When you consider you might be playing as a half cat/half human and fighting dragons, then anything else is "game" for the imagination. I just pretend I do a cleansing spell before putting on armor I found on a rotting adventurer in a tomb. lol

I just ran the Can You Run It? app for my laptop and it fails to meet the Skyrim minimum requirements because of its lower graphics card. I'm not surprised. I just use this laptop to do email and basic internet stuff.

Can You Run It?
If you don't want to run the above app, here are Skyrim's requirements:

Minimum Requirements
CPU Speed: Dual Core 2.0 GHz or equivalent processor
RAM: 2 GB
OS: Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
Video Card: DirectX 9.0c compliant video card with 512 MB of RAM (NOTE: This requirement is NOT yet confirmed by Bethesda - NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT & ATI Radeon X1800. Please be advised this may change soon).
Sound Card: Yes
Free Disk Space: 6 GB

Recommended Requirements
CPU: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
RAM: 4 GB
OS: Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
Video Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with 1 GB of RAM (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon HD 4890 or higher)
Sound Card: Yes
Free Disk Space: 6 GB

Mad, seems to be a mixed answer. Most quest items can't be sold, but some can be. What do you think you sold?

If you did, try to remember who you sold it to and go buy it back smile

Also if you can't remember where you sold the item (or if you sold the item) there is a great cheat where you can go to find all the items in the game. Sometimes it takes a little searching because that's a lot of items to search through.

Anyway you can use your console and type in "COC Qasmoke" and that will take you there. To get back you type in "COC Riverwood"

Hi All - And thanks for the tips smile

I can't definitely remember what the items even were specifically, now, but I think the quests involved were very minor.

However, I re-started the game after I posted my question and intend to keep a note of any "Quest Items" I might have in my possession.
[Yes .... A good old "paper" note !! rotfl]

It would have been so much more sensible for the "game" to identify these items in some way !!

Thanks again.

Cheers.

Mad yes
