Ooo!! Can't wait to hear what you think about it. I may just have to fire mine up and do a replay - it's been a couple of years. All the references to old adventure games are just a hoot.

Good choice for Christmas day - which you WILL be spending uninterrupted, RIGHT?????????? :santa: I think I'm going to join you in a replay.

And, glad Steam got you sorted out. What did you have to do to reactivate the account? Do they suspend them if you don't use them for a long time? Just curious...

It seems I was registered with my Kenyan email account which I no longer have access to, so they had to set up the account for me with my current email and a new password.

Ah, that makes sense... Seems a lifetime ago that you were in Kenya.

3 years at beginning of April - absolutely no ties any more with that country, which suits me well - The plot I sold at the end of the Summer was my last connection :cheers:

I want to download my Steam games to my EHD, but I am having problems grrrr. The Steam app gives me the option to either download into Program Files or it asks me to choose location for instal, so I created a new Folder on the EHD called Steam, but it just wont let me download to that folder - What am I doing wrong? :scratch:

When you choose where to download it, are you first specifying the drive and then the folder? It should let you do it that way. I might check with one of my games to see what happens.

I found this in the Steam Support section... maybe you have to install the Steam Client on the EHD? I'm too tired to make my brain work any more tonight! See if any of this helps...

What I do is download to my computer hard drive and then before installing I transfer over to my EHD.

Yes, in the dropdown list, I first find the EHD, and then the folder, but no luck.

Then how do I transfer it from PC hard drive to EHD? It's too early in the morning here to think straight LOL.

Looks like we're in the same boat! See my edits in the post above! I just drag and drop the download to the EHD for safe keeping.
