    Where the hell is Tyrian?

    Been playing it for a bit so that I can finally get acquainted with that SHMUP I played just once, a long time ago, on someone else's Windows NT PC. It may not give me the nostalgia factor of Raptor: Call of the Shadows(played the shareware version of that quite a bit), but I wouldn't be surprised if I caught myself saying that Tyrian is the superior game very soon despite the relative lack of nostalgia I get from it.

    I just noticed that the 3d Realms download site isn't listed. Why? because they usually end up releasing the full versions of their discontinued games. This stuff, usually, is listed on liberated games; but it wouldn't be a bad idea to link to it anyway, since Rockstar is up there.

    Currently discontinued freeware releases include: Bio Menace, Alien Carnage/Halloween Harry, Adventure Fun-Pack, Beyond the Titanic, Boppin' (via link), Caves of Thor, Major Stryker, Puzzle Fun-Pak, Stargunner, Supernova, Trivia Whiz, Wolf3D Super Upgrades addon, Word Whiz, and Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport.

    EDIT: Your freespacezone.net link is dead.

    Knytt Stories is out. I haven't played it yet, but this ought to be good.


    Finished it. Yep, it's good.
    Haven't tried the extra downloadable content yet, and there seems to be some sort of extra mission in the original world.
    spoiler:
    In the Congratulations screen, you can climb off the top right side of the screen. Also, was anyone else half expecting a bossfight?

    And yeah, The_Raven, it was.

    I was wondering when in-game advertising was going to get big enough to start releasing some popular, not-too-old games. This is the precipice...

  8. #133
    I hope those in-game ads aren't too intrusive, because Far Cry for free doesn't sound like a bad deal. (It's one of those few FPSs that can run half-decently on this 2002-era system while not totally looking like crap...and it'll help get me pumped for Crysis.)

    In the meantime, it looks like I'll have to get cracking on C&C again. Seems that my overnight download didn't finish, and the 56k-class transfer rates didn't help much. I hope that's just because a ton of people are trying to get it before September's end(where they'll take back the free downloads), because I can't wait to find out all about Kane. (There's something you gotta like about that guy, even if he is heading the bad guys and you don't know much else about him...)

    I've read on some other forum that this ad-supported version of Far Cry has multiplayer locked out.

    Downloaded it, I'll see for myself when I install it.

  10. #135
    The problem with free Far Cry multiplayer is that you need a CD key, and this version doesn't give you one.

    I'm also wondering if the CD key is tied into one's ubi.com account.

    (Speaking of ubi.com, I'm now starting to feel glad that Crysis probably won't use it...)



    ...Okay, I am just STUMPED trying to figure out how to progress in seiklus. 76% complete, with only half of the green round creature things missing, and 55 of the black ones to go. The only golden item I'm missing is the star all the way to the bottom-right. I notice an area with sealed "caves" with dots that light up with a certain color if you collect all 100 of the round creature things of a given color. Can't do anything there...yet.

    There's also a giant piano thing just past the volcano area. When you land on a key, the bottom circle lights up with a given color, which definitely corresponds with one of the colors of the round creature things. As to how to use it, I just don't know. The worse part here is that I can't jump up to the ledge and explore further-it's just too high.

    Finally, I still don't know what that W key is for.

    Can someone throw me some hints here so that I can be done with the game and move on to Knytt (Stories)?

    So how intrusive are the adds and how often do they show up? I'm guessing it's going to be loading screen style adds that show up in between every level, but you never know with game advertising these days. Wasn't it Swat 4 that used in-game advertisements on posters throughout the game level?

    You won't need to until later in the game. However...

    Try taking a closer look at that weird mural in the area with the "ghosts" that pop when they touch you. You've most likely seen it, and it's a hint. There's a lot of these around the game - little details, usually on the walls, that are different from everything else. They're usually a hint that there's a secret area around; however the mural is a blatantly obvious irregularity and does not hint at a nearby secret.

    Finally, I still don't know what that W key is for.
    You'll see, again it's not relevant until a bit later in the game.

    Just change country in your ubi.com account into U.S. and you'll be able to play it.

    Not so fast there, I'm working up a second wind!

    Ok, I went to ubi.com and changed my location to United States and I still get the "Sorry, you must live in the U.S. to play this game" message! WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    If you downloaded it from Fileplanet, change your Fileplanet account settings to show you indeed live in the U.S.

    Nope, I got it from FileShack (without an account). I don't know, maybe I have some old cookies lying around acting up or something... I'll look into it tomorrow.

    henke,

    Check it out.

    "Thank you for downloading one of the promotional PC titles made available for ad-supported freeplay over the Labor Day weekend. The promotion is now closed and it is no longer possible to play the games for free."

    Found this in my mailbox after trying to install PoP to no avail. So now I have a 1 GB ad-supported PoP install on my HD that is useless. I got FarCry half-way and ditched it after I realized it was futile.

    Mods might want to pull those links because you can still download but it would be a waste of time so no need to mislead people.

    Yeah too bad FilePlanet says:

    "All downloaded files which have not been activated are going to be made inactive through the ubi.com login. Previously, the ubi.com login would require a US country in order to install the game. Ubisoft will make the ubi.com login reject all entries into country. They hope to relaunch the program once we can add IP-blocking into our login process."

    So at least people in US might have a chance to see this happening again.

    I'll edit the post with the links.

  24. #149
    Balls, I was thinking of getting Prince of Persia as well...

    I just hope that I can still install Far Cry on a newer PC down the road...though, by the time I get it, I'll probably be too busy with either Bioshock(my current PC has a snowball's chance of hell in running it)or the Crysis demo.

    In other news, both Knytt Stories and it's downloadable content is fucking amazing. The games are just a joy to play
