What is the error message you are getting?

Are you re-installing the same versions that you originally installed with
those codes, or are you trying to upgrade to the current versions?

If you are upgrading to the current versions, you need new codes from
Sean (which are free).

Darrel,

The best I've been able to beat Island #381 so far is 29 days -- still quite a ways from your best score, but within my goal of 30 days for all islands.

Darrel, I just found a way to beat that island in 28 days, so I'm satisfied. My current goal is to beat every island in fewer than 30 days, and it's always nice to come with a few days of your best score. :-) As you suggested, the key to success was finding a combination of moves in the E (both NE a...

Island #371

Island #371 seems to be a relatively difficult one. I haven't found a way to beat it in fewer than 35 days yet, although I know it's possible to beat it in 26 days (according to Darrel's screen capture). I don't know whether to feel challenged or annoyed at this point, but I'll keep pounding away at...

I should have mentioned that Darrel has beaten island #28 in 29 days (according to the scores he posted in another thread). I've managed it
in 31 days. I don't find that island to be particularly hard, but it does take quite a few days to beat.

You need to join the three territories in the main (NW) bulb of the island as soon as possible, while keeping the territory in the south alive. Then, join those territories and make a run for the narrowest part of the neck between west and east. If you can put a knight there, you can mop up everthin...

Darrel, our group has been lax about getting together for network Slay lately. Perhaps this inquiry from a new player will give us the opportunity to get together more often. I'm up for a game or two just about any time.

Toughest Island in Slay 4.x?

I haven't been able to beat the computer on Very Clever on Island 64 in
Slay 4.x in fewer than 34 days (without accepting surrender). Does anyone have a better time? Dar, what's your best on that island?

You can reset the Challenge game window by deleting the SLAY.DAT file, although I agree it would be nice to have a reset option within the game itself. I also agree it would be nice to be able to add notes or mark past games in some way to indicate they were particularly interesting or worth playing...

Problem w/Small Maps

I am having a problem with small maps. I'm using Conquest v3.0b. If I start a new game with a small map, such as Mike Crush's _29_Tunnavassun, place my men, and start a battle, there is a problem with the contents of the green band at the bottom of the screen. Normally, the green band displays the n...
