Re: Steam vs 5.0 version

Every one of the islands can be won on the most difficult setting in version 5.0 when playing as the default player. However, when playing as alternate colors, there are exactly 2 islands that cannot be won. Maybe I was vague. Sorry for it - English is not my native language. What I mean is not tha...

2Sean:
And this happens. :) slay.dat was missed->Slay make a new one->all records turned back to trees. All is simple! :)
2sharon_2005:
And try hardly seek for slay.dat. Maybe it was simply removed to another directory? Previous "recycling bin and unerase" advice can be useful too. :)

I think, your situation is due corrupt or missing file slay.dat. All hi-scores stored here. If it was not so late, I could advice look into trash bin or search file with unerase utilities... Now I can only advice to backup this file only - it's simplier. :) P.S. But looking into deleted still maybe ...

I take Slay from somewhat CD-collection somewhere around June or July 1994. It was version 3-something. After that I re-translated it for Sean and so got full version. It isn't another way for me to get it legally. :) BTW, Sean, did you sell many licenses to Russia?

Merging two slay.dat files into one

Hello all!

I recently write utility, which can merge two Hi-Scores files into one, with best results. Info about this was in topic "Slay on 2 PCs". But, it seems, no one is interested in, or it pass unnoticed :(

If anyone want this utility, please, mail to me?

Re: Slay on 2 PCs

I have been playing Slay on my PC, but I now play much more on my laptop. Is there any way of copying across the Challenge screen (or the data) that indicates the islands I have completed to my laptop. Or (even better) is there any way of merging the two files to have a composite of all of the game...

I'm a bit confused by this conversation! I just tried playing a game and won it and then another where I let a computer player win. Both times I got a dialog box telling me who had won and when I clicked OK I was returned to the "high score table" of trees. I can't understand previous (not my) mess...

Re: menu

you should just be able to say start a new game and it will bring up the main screen of all the islands you can play... Na-ah. There isn't "main screen", when you press "New game" in PC-version. Instead game takes you right to "island options" screen with random island. And if you want "Main screen...
