Lightning struck my beloved old gaming computer the other night, and I am now trying to reload all my games onto another computer.

I know I can download each game I've purchased from BFG via the Purchase History under the My Account tab, but I thought I read somewhere (here?) that the ability exists to just automatically download all of them with a single click.

(I'd be willing to click more, of course, but I'd hate to have to download each of them individually as that will take forever.)

I've checked the BFG Help pages, the game stub Options and everything else I can think of, but I don't see any mention of this facility. Did I dream it?

I will email BFG, but they took the full 72 hours to reply to my last email, and I don't know if I can wait that long until my next game fix!

Why not just leave them there instaed of filling up your computer, you can download them any time.

I only have a few loved ones on my computer and I leave the rest at Big Fish. Then if there is nothing to play, I may downlaod an old game.

GPM, that capability was talked about as something that BFG hoped to implement, but as far as I know, it hasn't happened yet. wave

I am dealing with a similar situation and like Flo suggested, I am only downloading as I want to play the games. It is an option.

I don't think the one button to download everything ever happened. It would be a huge download that would take a long time depending on how long you have been a member. I joined in 2006 so that would be a lot of games, most I have no desire to replay.

Sorry to hear about your lightning strike! My girlfriend's notebook went out when they were hit by lightning over a year ago and she ran out and purchased a new computer. Then we noticed that Office Depot had a van outside with a sign for free diagnostics - end of story was for $100 her computer was working again! You might want to try that too.

Good luck!


So many games, so little time.
