Jigsaw puzzles

I'm not sure if this is an acceptable topic for these forums, but does anyone build jigsaw puzzles? I have a couple of digital apps (and a few more that no longer work on my current OS), and sometimes I will do an online one, but... A couple of years ago, I was half-heartedly opening some boxes of t...

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

Also, Mac users, please note: CAUTION!: The newest version of Diablo II (and LOD) doesn't seem to work on the later versions of Mac OS X at this time. 1.14B still works (with a few minor glitches, but 1.14d won't load the game. :( If you have an older version of the game (and patches), back it up a...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

So where did the 26 character Key Code show up if not in the Games & Subscriptions section? I found, in my personal records I backed up, the 26 character Key Code for Starcraft, and my notes say that I registered it at the same time I registered Diablo II and Warcraft III and their expansions, but i...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

That's weird. You should just be able to just log in to your account, type in the 16 number code (if you have one) at the Account Overview section there, and then get a license key after it is registered (which would show up in the Games & Subscriptions section of your account. Let me know if the Ba...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Oh, this is important. When you have registered the game, not only will it be listed here: https://account.blizzard.com/games with the license key showing, but also there will be a link next to it called "Download Game Client" and if I remember correctly, that link takes you to a page to download th...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

It only works for games they still support, though. I couldn't register my older games (Diablo, Starcraft + Broodwar, and Warcraft and Warcraft II) and I remember talking to someone (on the phone -- remember phone support??? ) there who said that they couldn't be registered for the Mac because they ...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

This is what I found on their site: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/11263 It doesn't give particulars... :( But here is the URL for Account Overview: https://account.blizzard.com/overview BUT you need to have or create a Blizzard.com (or Battle.net) Account first. Then any games that you ha...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Yeah, mine were, too. Did you register the game on the Blizzard.com website? I think they had a way to deal with people that had the old 16 number code. I wish I could remember exactly how to do it, but you create and account (or use the one you already have) then register all of your games (except ...

Good luck! I hope that the downloadable upgraded versions for Windows work for you, Draclvr.

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Also, Blizzard took care of people who already bought the discs by allowing them to register the games registration numbers to their Blizzard account, and then the game(s) could be downloaded and installed directly from Blizzard without using the CDs at all. That's what I had been doing when I got a...

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...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I'm back to playing Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, single-player . I had to get a replacement Mac a while ago, and when I installed the latest version of Diablo II LOD on the replacement iMac, it wouldn't run! And Blizzard doesn't have the installers (or upgrade patches) available for download (or ...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I've had Peter's Jigsaws since he asked for Mac playtesters long ago and gave me a copy in exchange. :) There are many interesting puzzles to build (and more added every month).

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I haven't been playing any computer games for quite a long time (not even Diablo II: Lord of Destruction!). But occasionally, I will build a puzzle on my computer using Peter's Jigsaws or Jigsaws Galore, or sometimes online at jigidi.com or TheJigsawPuzzles.com. Maybe I will soon, though. You all ha...
