heh, whoops, sorry Saxy! I never noticed that you were trying to write. I'm, err, having issues with the GameTap interface as well...

What may be the problem is that the game I'm playing on there (Kings Quest 5, actually... I know, I know, ancient games, but they are classics and I never played them before) is full screen, so even if a little chat window or something pops up within the interface, I won't see it. I don't think.

I'll hafta play with it tonight and see if I can figure the thing out. <sigh>. What're you guys using for handles on there?

I tried signing on and played King's Quest for a while, but it wouldn't let me save, saying the disk was full or write-protected, which is baloney. I gave up because I didn't want to get far if I couldn't save and come back to it.

MJ: Known issue. Check the GameTap Help.

Why can I not save my progress in DOS games?

Quote:
While using any DOS game, if the game asks you to type in the name of the drive and/or directory to save the game and you follow the instructions, you may be told that the drive is full or write protected.

However, if you type the \filename without a drive letter - contrary to the example given in this game - the game will save properly.

This is a known issue and will be fixed in upcoming updates.

Bring it on. Wink
