  1. When I right-click on a game to get the Menu, and click on one of the 'Additional Apps' (e.g., different Episodes of Sam & Max within Sam & Max: Season 1), nothing happens.  No error, no nothing.  It used to work a few versions back (I'm using v9.9 now).  I have the full and correct path of the appropriate executable in the Additional Apps tab within the Edit Game window.  Any ideas?

  2. (This story is a few months old, but interesting, nevertheless).  The A.I. Google's DeepMind Team developed is called AlphaStar.  Video games like StarCraft are mathematically more complex than chess or Go.  The number of valid positions on a Go board is a 1 followed by 170 zeros; the equivalent for StarCraft is estimated to be a 1 with at least 270 zeros.  Anyway, here's a short Video with some of the battle.

    Nah, I love board games!

    Hey, that's awesome, Zombeaver.  I thought there may be some (well, there may still be) who wouldn't take kindly to my analog ways and tendencies.  :)

    Generally, I laugh more when playing Board Games.  'Course, that's probably 'cause there are other people there, and we're often ribbin' each other about somethin'.  :D  I die a lot more in Video Games, too.  In the last Video Game I played, I was viciously mauled to death (numerous times) by a pack of guard dogs.  My "deaths" in Board Games are much less gruesome (and not near as frequent).

    My Board Gaming pal has been collecting games since she was a kid, and currently has over 620 of 'em (from vintage to brand new), so it's always somethin' new over there!

    How many games does a Gamer (Video or Board) need?  Just one more.  ;)

  4. Well, I've been stayin' afloat for the most part.  Thanks for askin', DOS!  I hope things are goin' well for ya in Jersey (What was that amusing name you had for New Jersey?).

    It's probably considered near Blasphemy in this Forum, but I've been playin' a lot of board games lately.  They're more well-suited to my waning reflexes.  :)

    Besides, with an "approval rating" of less than 2% (+16 outta 857), it was apparent most in this Forum didn't think much of anything I had to say.

    'Course, never having anything noteworthy to say may have contributed to that.  xD
