We have designed this section to help those who feel 'geek-challenged'.
Here you will find the answers to some of the questions about playing computer games that Mr. Bill has been asked time and time again.
They include some basic questions about adventure gaming, and also some semi-technical questions about using computers. Questions such as How to Download and make use of Patches and Saved Games, Create New Folders, Rename Folders, and put Downloads (from either email or websites) into the correct folder on your hard drive, etc.
These answers primarily apply to Windows 95 and/or Windows 98 (Operating Systems for the computer), Internet Explorer (for surfing the Internet) and Outlet Express (for email), because these are the programs that Mr. Bill uses.
But please note: The intent of this section is to make available, as a public service, information that has apparently helped other gamers in the past. However because all computers and users are different, we cannot guarantee that it will work for you, and we cannot be held responsible for any negative results to your computer and/or software if you decide to try any of the information found on these pages.
Note For Windows XP Users
Many older games may be played under Windows XP, but some of them require very special techniques and additional supporting software to get them to either install and/or run (especially DOS games). The following two websites will provide an abundance of information to help you with this.
Lesson 1: Creating a Place to Store my Download
Lesson 2: Downloading It to a Storage Folder
Lesson 3: Moving It to Where you Want to Use It
Lesson 4: What to do if What I Download is Zipped
