Re: what game?

Well, that could explain why it's not ringing a bell for me as I've never played those games!

Re: How to Get Your Classic Blizzard Games Playing on New Systems

I have some other stuff to do first, but I'll work on moving these later. I'm glad you put that post right up at the top though!

How to Get Your Classic Blizzard Games Playing on New Systems

Jude and I started a conversation about Diablo II and with her guidance I was able to get my old Diablo II Lord of Destruction game playing on my Windows 10 computer. It's like having an old friend back! I'm going to merge those posts into this forum so I is available for anyone who is looking for a...

I know... that still makes me sick! I had Ghostlady take those forums completely OFF the pruning schedule.

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I will! EDIT: Finally! When I went to that Account Overview page in my account and it asked to redeem a code, I assumed that meant a purchase game code and didn't realize it meant a CD Key! Anyway, I still had to do a bit of searching to find where they generated the 26 character Key Code I need to ...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

It appears there is no way to register the game until you have it installed. And I can't install the game, so I can't register it! I downloaded the Battle.net desktop app which at least gave me the option to register the game.

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I did create an account, but I don't know how to register a game. I will look in some of your links.

EDIT: The first link was for redeeming a purchase code. The second one just took me to my account overview. I try to find something on registering a game.

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Well, I hoped so too! I downloaded both of them and when I go to install Diablo II, it asks for my 26 character CD key. Except that my CD key is only 16 characters and it won't accept it! I checked and the CD key for the LOD Expansion is also only 16 characters. I posted in the forums and if I don't...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Starting with Windows 8 and 10, Windows started blocking certain forms of DRM. It deemed them to be a sufficient threat to block them from being installed, therefore the games couldn't be installed. They aren't wrong about the DRM being a real problem, but I'd rather they'd allowed me to decide. I d...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Yeah, same here for Diablo and Windows 10. What is does is block the DRM on the original discs. However, GOG is selling Diablo I with the Hellfire expansion pack as a download with the DRM removed. I am hoping for Lord of Destruction to be offered next! I much prefer single player - tried the multi-...

None of this sounds familiar to me at all. Hopefully, someone else will be able to help!

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I passed on Syberia 3 because of the uproar about the dreadful controls on a PC. I know they made some changes, so maybe they really helped.

On that subject, there is going to be a Syberia 4! Syberia The World Before.

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

I know you're not ready, but I got this email from Nvidia this morning. One thing I would highly suggest you look for when you're ready is a minimum of a 512 GB SSD - solid state drive. You won't believe how fast and wonderful an SSD is. I don't think I could go back to a regular hard drive! Nvidia ...

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

I've only used Nvidia graphics and will stick with them. A very good time to start looking is the "back to school" sales and then again towards Christmas. The school laptops are usually very low end as most college students don't need a good gaming laptop. A good one costs in the range of ...

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

I agree with you... laptops just don't have great driver support. Let me know when you start looking - I get insider deals all the time. I like ASUS too and used an ASUS motherboard in my grandson's computer that he and I built in March. Loved that motherboard and will be using ASUS for my next buil...
