Reinstalling games...

I am switching to a new computer and want to transfer the games over to it. Can I copy it to a flash drive without messing up the games ( if that happens my husband would kill me, these are his games)or do I have to have all of the original info, which I can't seem to find? I bought the game pack over 5 years ago...

1. I do not know about "to transfer" the games. What you can do is to simply install the games on the new puter. Then, it will be possible to transfer some data files to have all your stats (for slay for example).

2. I believe it is possible to download the latest version of the game you have and input into it the license number you have presently for each game This should unblock the demo games into a full license game.

If this does not work, you could email Sean with your purchase details and he usually helps out to retrieve your license details.

Good Luck.

Yes, you can copy the folder over to a flash drive and then copy that folder on to a new computer. The only game that will give you problems is Critical Mass though as it will think you are cheating and will reset the high score table.

The tidiest way though is to do a re-install (you can always send me an email to sean@windowsgames.co.uk if you need the installer file again) and that way you will have icons on your desktop and Start menu again. If you then wanted to transfer over your high score tables from the old computer you'd only need to find the individual files (for example Slay's is called HighScore.dat)
