Oh, heck no! This is family... our "B & B" is free, free, free! Although it's a month, we enjoy them a lot as we catch up on family. This is actually my husband's first wife's family. He met her while stationed in Germany and she passed away in 1999. My 2nd husband had died a couple of years earlier and after we got together, I told them they should just keep coming over, so they do! They shop and visit family and we cook together 3 or 4 times a week. Petra lives out by the pool and reads and there is a lot of good beer consumed while we watch "chicken TV" every night!
Thanks, Draclvr. Yes, I never use anyone's email either, even if I already have it, until and unless I have their permission. I thought maybe screenshots weren't allowed because of risks of hacking or something. But I guess bandwith makes sense too. I remember well, back in the days when I actually had time to write walkthroughs (and those were quite long and thorough walkthroughs at that!), one of the first things Marita asked me was to keep the screenshots at a minimum because of cyberspace concerns.
But re: B & B - Bed & Breakfast?! Don't tell me you charge your guests for putting them up! Better to have them "return the favor" by getting them to pay for your stay, and then be sure to go visit them often! As I recall back in the days when I used to visit Europe with my family, Europe is really expensive - especially food-wise!
LOL! Yes, Guenter and Petra come every summer for a month to visit with family on this side of the globe. And shop! I always say my B & B is open for business in the summer.
Gameboomers has a longstanding policy of not allowing screenshots as it could easily start eating up bandwidth with as many members as we have. I rely on screenshots a lot to help people and I just go to their profile and get the email address after asking permission first.
I don't know whether you have to install the game's version of PhysX at the same time as you install the game in order for the game to be convinced PhysX is installed. Apparently the game does some "check" to make sure PhysX is installed, and does not recognize the newer PhysX version as valid. It may be necessary to uninstall the game as well as uninstall the modern version of PhysX before attempting to install the game along with PhysX.
See? The screenshot would have made it clearer. No, the game doesn't check anything. The PhysX installation is part of the whole set up, i.e., the installation of the game. First, the game "extracts" a bunch of files from the game's DVD; then, it installs those files on the computer; then, it installs DirectX [you know, most games check and then inform me that I already have the necessary DirectX version and therefore don't need to do anything further; but this game doesn't bother to even do that!]; and then, it goes into the PhysX Set Up - no questions asked or answers (given by the computer re: my trying to install drivers older than the ones I already have, etc.) recognized. It's all part and parcel of the game's set up, which apparently does not allow for any exceptions.
Anyway, I went to all that trouble because I thought you were curious, and that you might like to have the information so as to perhaps be able to help future gamers who might have run into a similar problem. That's also why I took the screenshots, hoping to post them here on the forum so (a) not only could you see for yourself, but (b) so could any future gamers who happened to try this game.

Little Jacob is always being teased by the other neighborhood boys for being stupid jew. Their favorite joke is to offer Jacob his choice between a nickel and a dime -- Little Jacob always takes the nickel. One day, after Jacob takes the nickel, a neighbor man takes him aside and says, "Jacob, those boys are making fun of you. Don't you know that a dime is worth more than a nickel, even though the nickel's bigger?" Jacob grins and says, "Well, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I've made $20!" ~~~~
A young man walks into a singles bar with a roll of quarters taped inside the crotch of his jeans. He looks around, then sits next to the most attractive woman there. He was very pleased with himself after he noticed her constantly glancing down at his crotch. "Hi, there, I'm Jerry," he said, as he went into one of his well rehearsed routines, "and I help produce a T.V. quiz show. Is there any question I can answer for you?" "As a matter of fact there is," she said as she glanced down once more toward his embellished jeans. "Do you have change for a dollar?" ~~~~

A man goes into a bar and seats himself on a stool. The bartender looks at him and says, "What'll it be buddy?" The man says, "Set me up with seven whiskey shots and make them doubles." The bartender does this and watches the man slug one down, then the next, then the next, and so on until all seven are gone almost as quickly as they were served. Staring in disbelief, the bartender asks why he's doing all this drinking. "You'd drink them this fast too if you had what I have." The bartender hastily asks, "What do you have pal?" The man quickly replies, "I have a dollar." ~~~~
A man and his young wife were in divorce court, but the custody of their children posed a problem. The mother gets up and says to the judge that since she brought the children into this world, she should retain custody of them. The man also wanted custody of his children, so the judge asked for his justification. After a long silence, the man slowly rose from his chair and replied, "Your Honor, when I put a dollar in a vending machine and a Coke comes out, does the Coke belong to me or the machine?" ~~~~
Good morning everyboomie.
Welcome to the weekend!!!
I just wanna be prepared.
Either that or I'm overly optimistic.
Although, I don't think I'm capable of being that optimistic.
Well we're steamrolling through June, eh? We're almost half way through the year......already.
Only six more shopping months till Christmas.
Have a super Tuesday everybody. Don't forget to vote.
