[15:45:20] <zarkyb> yes
[15:45:31] <amOKchen> and i downloaded something to make it run in win2k
[15:45:47] <amOKchen> uwadv-0.9-mojito-win32
[15:45:54] <amOKchen> but monsters dont move
[15:45:56] <zarkyb> yeah it isn't complete yet
[15:45:59] <amOKchen> and evrything is frozen
[15:46:00] <amOKchen> :<
[15:46:01] <amOKchen> ohh
[15:46:18] <amOKchen> and when i go into save games i cant get out ;)
[15:46:27] <amOKchen> but is there anyway i can play it in win2k then?
[15:46:44] <zarkyb> to be honest.... not really
[15:46:52] <amOKchen> damn
[15:47:07] <amOKchen> it runs in win98?
[15:47:31] <zarkyb> yeah... depends on hardware though
[15:47:45] <amOKchen> slower hardware = good ^^?
[15:48:07] <zarkyb> older hardware = more compatible
[15:48:21] <zarkyb> i have a p120 laptop... runs nice on that
[15:48:23] <amOKchen> this is an xp1800 with 512ddr ram and radeon9800
[15:48:23] <amOKchen> :<
[15:48:36] <zarkyb> heh
[15:48:44] <zarkyb> to be honest it's mainly sound
[15:48:45] <amOKchen> got an older computer with amd600 geforce1 and 256sdr
[15:48:49] <amOKchen> ohh
[15:48:52] <amOKchen> :D
[15:49:25] <amOKchen> hmm need a new harddisk, dont want to reformat this or play with partitions.
[15:49:26] <zarkyb> it's good if it has a sb compatible soundcard
[15:49:28] <amOKchen> gonna order one
[15:49:28] <amOKchen> :D

[15:55:37] <wjp> that doesn't matter at all legally speaking

[15:56:05] <amOKchen> ok

[15:56:59] <amOKchen> amsged foir one hour on 20 chans on quakenet before i found someone who got uw1
[15:56:59] <amOKchen> :P
[15:57:00] <amOKchen> :P
[15:57:26] <zarkyb> try ebay
[15:57:46] <zarkyb> i bought my copy of uw1 and 2 a few years back in a rpg collection... well worth the money
[15:57:58] <amOKchen> ok
[15:58:10] <amOKchen> uw was the only rpg game i ever played
[15:58:15] <amOKchen> then quake3
[15:58:18] <amOKchen> and mroe quake3
[15:58:21] <amOKchen> :o
[15:58:52] <amOKchen> proberly because of that i need a lill change
[15:59:23] <amOKchen> after i was to qlan in sweden and dindt win anything i need a lill break with it ;)
[16:00:13] <amOKchen> and rpg is perfect
[16:08:54] <amOKchen> 
[16:08:54] <amOKchen> 
[16:08:54] <amOKchen> 
[16:11:09] <amOKchen> is ultima 1 to xx same kind of game?
[16:11:32] <zarkyb> rpg yes, 3d no
[16:12:08] <amOKchen> ok
[16:21:49] <amOKchen> The page cannot be found
[16:21:50] <amOKchen> ^^
[16:21:51] <amOKchen> typical
[16:21:57] <amOKchen> when i find one
[16:36:51] <Dragst_> ultima 1 rocks
[16:36:56] <Dragst_> it's very hack'n'slash
[16:37:11] <Dragst_> but it still rocks =)
[16:37:32] <Dragst_> if you want to play it, I seriously suggest finding c64 version of it and playing it with an emulator
[16:51:25] <amOKchen> ok
[17:39:14] <Dragst_> ultima 3 on the other hand has a brilliant feeling into it
[17:39:27] <Dragst_> the only downside of the game is rather clumsy UI
[17:39:32] <Dragst_> (There is none, that is =))
