Congratulations.
As a non-gamer, I have no comprehension of how hard this was - but as we're still waiting for an Olympic medal, celebrating your efforts seems the best interim measure I can come up with.
So stand on the podium & accept your medal.
We're singing along with the National Anthem...

I'm not into video gamimg much at all as I think most people know.
I will go on record as saying I have actually completed Commander Keen 1 and 4. I have also completed Crimson Skies on the PC.

Does it count if you take off from Tokoroa and navigate to Ruapehu and land at Taupo without a crash? I don't really think so. I did feel a sense of achievement for having done these things though. How do you complete all things in Microsoft Flight Sim 2001? Rhetorical question that was. :-)


To Metla. There have been games I have tried and never even got close so I guess you are not alone. Oh Wolfenstien 1 I got through a bit but never did finish.

....The big question that begs to be asked:
Was it worth the $99 for Doom 3?

Awesome graphics... quite scary in some instances. Storyline was bit weak when I think about it, but then again.

It was good, but now that I've done it... it seems more ok than anything else.

www.gamefaqs.com is really good if you get stuck in a game. Otherwise just use the mighty googlor and search for a Farcry FAQ

Umm...the part where you're on a boat, and set off the bomb at the back and run to the front to shoot the approaching helicopter outta the sky. I've done it a 1000 times, ducking and weaving behind things, and although I get close I always die before the helicopter does. Either the chopper gets me, or the water does.

It's probably just something I have to persevere with, but I'm going nuts doing the same thing over and over...

Any secrets, or just keep going?

Looked at the cheats, but installing them in the files seemed more complicated than I could handle, so haven't gone there.

Would do if I could though. I want to see how the game ends!!

You need to just keep hitting the chopper with shots while avoiding getting killed. Once the boat is nearly down you need to climb onto the container which is still floating.

This bit is quite eay compared to one part just near the end which I could never do without the cheat on no matter how many times I tried.

Turning on the cheats is easy. You replace a file and the add a part to the cmdline on the shortcut to the program. One in place you just hit the right key and the cheat takes over.

Ahh...see, I don't know what a "cmdline" is......

I right-clicked on the game icon, and went to properties but.....

yeah, good to know about the container, i'll look for that

cheers
