Its free (the 10th anniversary of bejeweled) till 10 pm 10/10/10 PST time. Which by the looks is still valid for NZ

I've just downloaded then installed / registered it. By the looks of it, if you're using an ATI card, you have to disable hardware accelerate in its options (if you dont kill it first :lol:). Otherwise it'll stall / freeze. This may take a while (like 10,000) end tasks :lol:

http://popcap.com/. Just fill in the details. It'll send you an email, with a POP # to register it

Just found out. If you cant turn HW Acc off in the game. Go into the registry to this entry HKEY_Current_User/Software/Popcap/Bejeweled2. Change the value of Is3D from 1 to 0 (Quit BJ first). Then see if its playable. This may also fix it http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/ATICatalyst109Hotfix.aspx if you've got an ATI card.

Dont know if it applies to these cards or not tho. They're not the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 or ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 cards

Sweet ! Yup so do we lol. Seems a bit harder to get a higher score (than before). I've had more no more moves than anything else. Blardy thing

She was just playing it on full Screen :thumbs: Sweet as.

Her comment a few minutes ago "Dinner will be late" :D

I just said after she ran out of moves, 4 levels -- "hey Woman shut it down make dinner" :rolleyes:

Did you hear her laughing :lol:

That comment went down like a lead balloon. :p

Looks like the hotfix fixed the freezing. And I could enable HW accel again

You have a lot to answer for Speedy, sat down for my first hot meal today since 10/11/10 and that was only cause she broke the 1,000,000 mark. She goes away for a day or two next week and I have a funny feeling that some thing is about to happen to her lappie, can't afford to loose much more weight, LOL.
