Seems to run just fine for me, Ysk.  I just played a few turns with a couple of AI opponents to jog my memory and I didn't know what the hell I was doing (lol geddit).  I think I'm going to have to read the manual for this one!  I remember printing the manual out a long time ago.

I seem to be on version 1.06b, whereas the latest version is 1.08c which also incorporates a free expansion Rectification.  I guess we should upgrade to that?

Definately update!

My installer includes the latest.

Good to hear! I’ll be diving into the manual as well!

OK all done (first time I've manually patched a game in years).  I will try and at least have a pretender created by the end of the weekend.

Hm. Well, I thought I had it installed somewhere, but apparently I don't. I still have some save files and other auxiliaries including a set of avatars I created for a single-player game (all based on Rogue Agents from my fantasy novels ;) ), but not the actual software.

So I get to go hunting through my bags and stacks and drawers!  :bd: <:-)

Or, just email Vic with your order number and get a new download link saving you potentially a lot of hassle. :)

You mean, the order number on my disc?

yes, as soon as I find it...  :buck2:

(I feel pretty confident about finding it tho -- I've just been away from the house all day, and won't be able to look around until tomorrow afternoon sometime.)

Work (and weather/allergies) has been rather draining recently, and I absolutely crashed when I got home. But I have made some progress at least on the Age of Wonders game! I still feel confident about being able to find this disc and get it running, too. (With the most recent patch, which I've already downloaded.)

After preparing a massive reinforced garbage sack of games for donation to the guys at work (and/or to the dump, since all these games are available on GoG and/or elsewhere, inexpensively, and I already re-bought most of them, or they simply don't work on modern systems, or they're just totally superseded by modern games easily bought elsewhere)...

...I have found the disc I sought!

Testing shall commence soon. But progress has been occurred! (As my late pupil liked to say in Chinglish.)

(Oddly, I have managed to gain not much free space from preparing a 25 gallon bag of games to be moved along! -- so while that progress has also progressed more remains to be done.  :P )

Yay!

 :DD Sounds exactly like my attempts to clean out the attic (where all my game stuff resides)!  O:-)

Heh, I've never been to this part of the forum before. 

Edit: disregard, I may have found the download link after all.

Alright, I was able to download the game and get it running.  The only reason I found the email was because I bought Six Gun Saga a really long time ago, and that keyword search actually turned up the right email originator (BMT Micro or something like that).

Gimme a bit to re-learn the game; I was never very good at it to begin with, but I remember it being harder than it appeared at first glance.

While we're waiting, I assume Ysk will host the game? If so, how do the pbem mechanics work?
