In your FAQ and also on every exe download page it contains the following instructions:
"How to run oldgames.sk (exe) Packages without installing
If you don't have administrator right on your system (Windows XP, Vista, Seven...)
Download any (exe) package from www.oldgames.sk
Rename package name and change extension from .EXE to .7Z
Use 7-Zip archiver (or WinRAR) and unpack it to New Folder
Go to New Folder and execute file like "#play.game.bat" or "#Play.bat"
Play the game..."
However ever since you have updated to Package v2.05 (exe) it is no longer possible to extract the files with 7zip.
I managed to partially solve the problem with logging in (logout):
In the login window, new option was added "Keep me logged in", which stores login on your browser and the system automatically logs you next time. In the current situation is RECOMMENDED for all check this checkbox, it avoids the frequent problem with logout/login.
I don't know, I have only one site ;-)
http://oldgames.sk is redirected automaticly to http://www.oldgames.sk.
There no option to show http://oldgames.sk (without www).
Please can you give me a screenshots from your browser?
The Last Rites page describes the game as being capable of the same things as Doom. This is actually alot more advanced than Doom, it can do slopes, polygons, true 3D and even primitive lighting. It would be closer to Terminator Future Shock in its' capabilities.
I see that you have two games listed on your site with the name Catacomb; Catacomb and Catacomb, The. Is there any download available for Catacomb? The one released in 1989-1990. There is only a download for The catacomb which used to be Catacomb 2 which was released in 1990.
Hey there, (great site! (bytheway)),
just downloaded one of my favourite gameseries: leisure-suit-larry
by doing this I checked out that one of the links was wrong:
It`s the *.zip file of Larry2, which if u wanna download it, is Leisure.Suit.Larry.1.zip! May be u wanna fix this.
However, the *.exe is linked correctly, so not really a "problem" to play the second part of the series :)
Eye of the Beholder has only 1 savegame file named EOBDATA.SAV, and it's in your EOB1 game directory.
If you have my package installation and default directory, this is the path:
"C:\Program Files\Oldgames\Eye of the Beholder Trilogy\C\EYE1\"
Hey guys. :) I recently downloaded your Eye Of The Beholder Trilogy pack. I finished the first EOB1 and wanted to transfer my party. When I attempt to transfer my party to EOB2, it tells me their data could not be found. Where on my computer are those files being saved to? I tried looking around for them myself, but I still can't find em. Can someone give me a hand?
Thank you ;) Phoenix. (If possible can I also get the response via email? firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hmm, this is little bit tricky, you must have the SAVE game before end of the game (before defeat of Tyranthraxus).
Here is my proceeding:
In Curse LOAD GAME, then REMOVE CHARACTER FROM PARTY (all). This action (essential) generate three save files for each character (file name = first 8 chars from char name, file extensions = .FX, .GUY, .SWG).
Copy all files from CURSE/SAVE directory to your SECRET/SAVE.
Do we have any experts on the old SSI gold box games here? I'm trying to move my PCs from the second gold box game, Curse of the Azure Bonds, to the third gold box game, Secret of the Silver Blades but I seem to be having trouble and I don't know why. Using CotAB I removed all of my PCs from the party so that they are saved PCs in Curse but for some reason I still cannot add them as new PCs in SotSB. I've tried using the menu to add PCs from Curse in SotSBs but for some reason it cannot find my PCs plus I have even tried to manually copy files from the Curse save directory to the Silver Blades save directory but nothing seems to work.
Both games were downloaded here and are the Old Games.sk editions of these games but for some reason I can't seem to transfer PCs from one game to the other and I would dearly love to since I've spent a lot of time building up these PCs. Can anyone offer any helpful suggestions?
I paid for a 1 year subscription and i can only download 1 file a minute and a maximum of 80 a day?
I thought it was unlimited downloads and I wouldn't have any timers! What gives? Why bother being premium and do highest one if it has limitations?
Dear DJ, is it possible to add some stuff to your site? I cannot find any UPLOAD link here (or is it just your policy in the matter?) I have some very hard to find and rare things (most of them in RPG and Adventure genres) which could be useful to Oldgames community (for example, full original ISO's: Azrael's Tear, Ravenloft 2: Stone Prophet, Anvil of Dawn (full > 300 Mb version); Interplay's Lord of the Rings RPG Special Edition CD etc). It would be nice to have all that stuff here in your great install packages, isn't it?
Well, Matt... maybe you'll stop messing around with this Amazon crap, please? BTW, I've bought Vivendi Sierra Collection recently - and I should admit that's a real piece of junk compared to great oldgames' releases. So Matt, could you be so kind and think twice before posting any amazon links here?
A lot of the Sierra adventure game series (King's Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry) have also been re-released by Vivendi Universal for about 15-20 USD each. These can be bought on Amazon.com.
