Banter and Chit-Chat! / 32 bit games on a 64 bit system
« on: October 09, 2016, 08:36:08 AM »
Got a real puzzler here

I have the original disks 1-4 for Gothic II gold edition (includes Night of The Raven addon). These are strictly 32 bit.

The original game will install on Windows 7 64 bit and play provided I use fixed exec files. Installing NOTR, the game
refuses to even start with its data disk in the drive. I've tried all compatibility modes.

Installing all four disks on an old Vista 32 bit, the game starts just fine with disk 4.

So I guess that's it, no full install play on W7 64 bit.

I still have the dlc Fall of Setarrif but no main game disk. When I did have it, I don't recall whether or not if it had to be activated with steam. I would like to acquire G4, and be able to install and play it without steam activation. Anybody got it and what do you want  for it?

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Risen 3: Titan Lords
« on: September 12, 2016, 11:23:11 PM »
It's been ages since playing this game. I don't remember how far I actually got through the game. Now it seems almost impossible. I no longer have any documentation but miraculously still have the game itself. There's several half hearted attempts for a walkthrough available. Halfhearted meaning: you can do this or you could have done that, this side quest is tied in with an associated main quest. Even the official or unofficial game guide PDF'S all seem curiously similar. It's no wonder nobody ever posted anything at gamefaqs because the game is so darn complex. So I have decided to somehow become wealthy and offer a ridiculously large paycheck for a sinfully explicit walkthrough for Risen 3; point a to b, do this then that, everything tied together, no if's, could have's, or alternative solutions.

I rest easy that nothing of the above paragraph will Ever come about.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Decided to replay Dungeon Lords, however...
« on: August 30, 2016, 10:30:09 AM »
Both version 1.4 and c1.5 does just fine up until I try to leave Fargrove out the west gate and the game freezes. I get the following with both game versions:

TerrQuad.ReadTerr0bjfileInfo:: Invalid Slot #6

Running as administrator and even compatibility mode (that changes savegame location) does no good. Some time back I could cheat the save file to uber levels and seemed that nothing could break the game. Now playing without cheating and I get the error. Possibly it's something in Windows 7. Even have a 32 bit Vista system and still the same problem. Have any of you ever had similar issues with Any game and how was it resolved?

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Terraforming Mars?
« on: June 13, 2016, 12:57:31 PM »
They're planning to settle humans on Mars and even talking about terraforming. What an idiotic idea! Earth has a magnetic field to prevent the atmosphere from being stripped away by solar winds. Mars still has a minimal atmosphere that is still being stripped away. Without a rotating core to generate magnetic fields, terraforming Mars is merely something scientists want to use tax money for and try just to find out why it cannot be done. I've got a better idea, install a rotating core !!! which also cannot be done. D U H !

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Educational level?
« on: May 26, 2016, 03:22:40 PM »
I came across a site who's slogan was "Can we guess your educational level?"

I took the 60 question test and scored enough to be guessed of being a 4 year graduate with a degree!

I suppose just about anyone that is widely read, has maniacal curiosity, and has been around for quite awhile could conn their way into any line of work. But that's not likely to happen in my case, because I'm pretty much one great lazy "donkey"

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Two Worlds III
« on: January 23, 2016, 05:22:51 PM »
It was supposed to be released in 2012 and was confirmed, but never came to be. Surely I'm not missing something and just can't find it. I know that Lucas Arts used to suddenly release games without having advertised them. The games just suddenly were for sale.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Wonder Woman
« on: November 24, 2015, 09:36:18 AM »
Lynda Carter sent me autographed photos of herself as Wonder Woman. I was absolutely on "Cloud NINE" for several days. And, of course, those photos are on my living room wall.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / What about the older generation?

The Old, the Wise, and the Culture of Aging               September, 2015 


We call them the elderly but not the elders.  Growing older in this culture is an interesting and challenging experience.  And growing older is ultimately what we all want to do.  After all, what’s the alternative?  It seems that there are no specific rules on how to go about this process.  The culture tells us that when you reach a certain age (anywhere from 55-65), you can go play shuffleboard or visit McDonald’s and get a cheaper coffee.  When it is decided that you are no longer capable, willing, or needy enough to participate in the daily hunt of “making a living,” then you may RETIRE.

Recent studies indicate that those who are turning 60 may be eligible for another 20+ years as our life span continues to expand.  In many cultures those who are aging become the elders; but in this culture we just have “old” people.  You would think that the culture would honor or reserve a special place for those who survive 6, 7, 8, or even 9 decades.  But all we keep getting are discounts and reduced rates at restaurants, hotels, resorts, etc.  And that’s okay.  But it seems that we’re losing the one thing so difficult to attain – and that is wisdom.

There’s plenty of knowledge out there – plenty of people who know.  But where are the wise elders who are sought after for counsel?  What rites of passage have been established to reach this position?  Why is this one commodity discounted?  Where are the elders?  And how do we find them?  We need to listen to their stories and pay attention to their counsel.  We need their wisdom.

Our current lifestyle has recently been diagnosed with attention deficit.  We fritter from one thing to the next in a matter of heartbeats with little concentration and much distraction.  The visual stimulus in our culture is overwhelming.  We are constantly bombarded with a steady barrage of advertising, news, sports, commentators, and events of little value.  And we are slowly becoming a population of lemmings.  As a people, we have grown tired of the steady mindless chatter telling us what is or is not important.  We need a rebirth and a renaissance.  And the irony is, just maybe that can be found in the aging population ~ the one group that is slowly discarded and discounted as they grow older.  Perhaps the answer to many of our dilemmas and lack of inspiring leadership can come directly from this source.  Maybe we will begin to look at this group as our elders rather than old people, or we can somehow stop referring to them as “retired,”  “old” or “disabled.”  Perhaps we can remove all of the labels of limitation that we have cast on them and give them the respect and honor they have earned.  We need their wisdom ~ and we need it now.

Is there a rightful place for the aged?  For those who draw closer to the edge of the mystery?  Is there any value to their lives, their stories, and their counsel?  Can we find the wisdom from their own personal dramas and life stories that can somehow enrich and sustain us for the future as we rapidly become that same population?  To be able to look beyond the form ~ the wrinkles, the thin, graying hair, the stooped shoulders, or the cane – and find the essence of the meaning of each life.  Perhaps that is wisdom in itself.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Two Worlds II
« on: September 30, 2015, 04:47:04 PM »
 >:( I put KOAR on hold and reinstalled TW2+Pirates of The Flying Fortress. In game, if you look straight down at your feet, open the cheat console and type in  Display.show 1, you see true coordinates while holding down the Shift key.
It also shows the current map and area you're in. It's supposed to be possible to type in any   jump map name  and hit enter to jump to that map area. However, it doesn't work. I thought previously I could jump to any map. Now it doesn't work, or does it? it's just that I don't remember how.  :'(

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Kingdoms of Amalur
« on: August 30, 2015, 07:36:54 AM »
Why didn't someone create a way to get rid of the fog of war and enable all locations?
In Witcher 3, someone created a debug enabler. Two of the options showed all fast
travel locations and you can fast travel from anywhere, no need for a FT sign.

For Kingdoms of amalur, Someone created a mod to make the game enemies much more difficult, but that is simply insane.

There's a trainer to mark your location, then you go somewhere else and can teleport back to the marked location. That is totally useless.

There just has to be a way to reveal all the map and fast travel to any revealed location without previously spending a lifetime discovering all areas.

*There is a limited save game editor; no names of items, just addresses for weapons and armor and can't really tell what is being edited.

*There's  a screen enhancer to bring out detail and coloring.

**There's a game save with super character and stats, for legend of dead kell dlc, after everything else has been done. The files are at ga**pr*s**r*

*Numerous trainers, but nothing available for fog of war or fast travel.

The limited item editor is attached;

Is there a downloader to download videos from bing? Some gameplay videos are not on youtube.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Playing Rhem 2 in Windows 7 64 bit
« on: May 16, 2015, 09:17:22 PM »
The game does really well, but I can't find the save files anywhere on the HD. I copied the entire game folder and pasted it on a pc running Win XP 32 bit, the saves didn't go with it, proving the save files are hidden somewhere in the win 7 64 bit hd. In win 7 64 bit, even the game directory has no save files, yet I can restore them.

On the XP 32 bit machine, the save files are found in the dpot directory. Anyone have an idea why the save files can't be found on the win 7 64 bit machine. I even have the show hidden directories option enabled.


>

Finally found the save location for Rhem 2 in win 7 64 bit. with view hidden files/folders, here's where I found them:

\\GEORGE-PC\Users\George\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Rhem2_E\DATA\DPOT


The George-PC was hidden.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / This really wizzes me off
« on: May 06, 2015, 08:24:02 PM »
Some demented sob sold my email to the spam add industry. All kinds of offers, but not all that troublesome. I just highlight all messages in the junk folder and delete them.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Anyone tried the Rhem 1-4 series?
« on: April 19, 2015, 11:34:06 AM »
I'm presently struggling with Rhem 1. Even had to resort to a couple of walkthroughs (seems there are only the two available). What really ticks me off is the inability or reluctance to give precise directions: For instance, you start out by being lead precisely through several check points, doing things, told to remember this or that location and what it contains. Then after several minutes, you're instructed to go back to a certain spot and no directions are given. Hell, my memory is only just good to a certain point, and I cannot store mental maps.

Seems as if several things are recycled in different authors walkthroughs, leaving me to question whether or not these authors have actually even started the games.

Does anyone know of a walkthrough for Rhem 1 that has precise directions in returning to a previous location or object rather than just saying to go back to the location you first were at several minutes or hours ago? I guess I could completely cover one wall with blank paper and plot all movements. But I was hoping to do some games before going to the great reward.
