Good Old Games

09 January 2018 - 10:23 AM

I like to play the single player games of MOHAA, but recently I turned the "Windows Update" feature back on and it downloaded about 151 updates** to Windows 7 that I run.  After that, MOHAA would not start up.  It supposedly comes from a security update that is also used in Windows 10.  It is DRM or something like that, that causes the old games not to work.  Well, I was furious.  Then I found out, on the web, that I am not alone.  Hundreds of thousands of people had this happen to all kinds of old games.  Some said it was put in there to make us buy new games, but I don't know.  Others said it opened up Windows to attacks by hackers.  All of this made no difference to me. I just wanted to play the game again.  So I kept reading and trying all the work arounds that people had come up with but it never worked.  Then I saw where several people mentioned this website called  GOG (Good Old Games).  They had taken these old games and revamped the code in the start-up and setup files to not do anything about the DRM system in Windows.  That way Windows would not stop the playing of the games.

 

So I bought MOHAA War Chest from GOG for $10.  I downloaded it and it is playing just fine.  There are some problems with the config files that won't allow certain buttons on the Numlock keypad to work which is aggravating because I have to use other buttons for reloading and selecting a weapon.  After 20 years of playing in a certain location on the keyboard it is difficult to change.  But I manage.  I am just glad it is playing again.

 

I noticed on their website that there are other games from 10 to 20 years ago that are available for download.  The company is based out of Warsaw, Poland, but I found no problem with them at all.  The VISA card was adjusted for EURO and there was no international costs for buying in Poland. If you like Wolfenstein, but it won't play, they have them all. 

 

Just thought I would post this here so others may find it useful.

**I don't need Windows security updates because I use Malwarebytes® as my antivirus and it plugs all those problems by itself.

 

 


Lain Time and others

16 December 2017 - 12:58 PM

I am so glad to see Lain again yesterday.  My old COD jeep driver.  I didn't get a chance to talk to him much, but we did text a little.

 

I am seeing the old crew slowly disappear from here.  Two years ago COD4 was really hopping on here and we had such fun playing and talking to each other.

Sadly those days are over.  Everyone moves on with life, but guys like me who are at the end of our lives, this is all we have most of the time.  Memories.  Memories

of better times and memories of the fun times.  Maybe some day we can get the guys back for a one day game play on COD4 and Teamspeak. It would mean a lot to me.

Anyone remember "MYST"

06 November 2017 - 01:01 PM

I don't remember when this came out, but it was a big deal in games for the HD look of the graphics.  I tried playing it but could never

get enough free time to finish it. 

Did they ever come out with another myst ?
