Installing Games

In general

  1. Listen for the call to play something.
    1. "Who wants to play The King's Game? Need 3 more."
  2. Ask how to get the game, if you don't have it.
    1. "Who has Warcraft III on share?"
  3. Copy the game folder over to your computer.
  4. Some games will have some kind of .reg file to run. In general this merely adds the installation path or CD key to the registry. Look for it in the game folder.
    1. Examples: UT2K4 has "ut2004.reg", Demigod has "demigod new heroes.reg"
    2. Sometimes you might need to hand-edit the .reg file in Notepad if there is something about your computer that is weird.
      1. eg: system drive is not C:\, 32 bit OS
  5. Some games have some kind of shortcut to run. Look for it in the game folder.
    1. Examples: UT2K4 has "UT2004.exe - Shortcut.lnk" because the main exe is hidden in the System folder somewhere. Air Buccaneers has "Air Buccaneers.lnk" because you need to pass command line parameters to the executable to launch the game with a total conversion mod. Warcraft III has two shortcuts to start the game in either OpenGL or DirectX mode.
  6. If you do all that and the game still doesn't work, ask for help. Chances are we might have seen the issue before.
    1. Except if you're trying to get it to run under WINE. Most of these games should work fine, but you're on your own getting it to that point...
  7. Remember to change your name in-game, especially in Enemy Territory as you're going to stuff up my stats you nooblord.
