Seems to run just fine for me, Ysk.  I just played a few turns with a couple of AI opponents to jog my memory and I didn't know what the hell I was doing (lol geddit).  I think I'm going to have to read the manual for this one!  I remember printing the manual out a long time ago.

I seem to be on version 1.06b, whereas the latest version is 1.08c which also incorporates a free expansion Rectification.  I guess we should upgrade to that?

OK all done (first time I've manually patched a game in years).  I will try and at least have a pretender created by the end of the weekend.

Hm. Well, I thought I had it installed somewhere, but apparently I don't. I still have some save files and other auxiliaries including a set of avatars I created for a single-player game (all based on Rogue Agents from my fantasy novels ;) ), but not the actual software.

So I get to go hunting through my bags and stacks and drawers!  :bd: <:-)

Or, just email Vic with your order number and get a new download link saving you potentially a lot of hassle. :)

You mean, the order number on my disc?

yes, as soon as I find it...  :buck2:

(I feel pretty confident about finding it tho -- I've just been away from the house all day, and won't be able to look around until tomorrow afternoon sometime.)

Work (and weather/allergies) has been rather draining recently, and I absolutely crashed when I got home. But I have made some progress at least on the Age of Wonders game! I still feel confident about being able to find this disc and get it running, too. (With the most recent patch, which I've already downloaded.)

After preparing a massive reinforced garbage sack of games for donation to the guys at work (and/or to the dump, since all these games are available on GoG and/or elsewhere, inexpensively, and I already re-bought most of them, or they simply don't work on modern systems, or they're just totally superseded by modern games easily bought elsewhere)...

...I have found the disc I sought!

Testing shall commence soon. But progress has been occurred! (As my late pupil liked to say in Chinglish.)

(Oddly, I have managed to gain not much free space from preparing a 25 gallon bag of games to be moved along! -- so while that progress has also progressed more remains to be done.  :P )

Yay!

Heh, I've never been to this part of the forum before. 

Edit: disregard, I may have found the download link after all.

Alright, I was able to download the game and get it running.  The only reason I found the email was because I bought Six Gun Saga a really long time ago, and that keyword search actually turned up the right email originator (BMT Micro or something like that).

Gimme a bit to re-learn the game; I was never very good at it to begin with, but I remember it being harder than it appeared at first glance.

While we're waiting, I assume Ysk will host the game? If so, how do the pbem mechanics work?
