  1. Jiggles also told me about the Virtual Machine setup. I have been able to run an old Worms game in compatibility mode but it hasn't worked so far for the others I tried. However one game, Tetris Worlds, has worked just fine other than not being able to tab out.
  2. My grandfather has always really enjoyed RTS and puzzle games. When I was younger, we would play games together on his old Dell desktop, and when that desktop died a few years ago I gave him my old HP laptop. At first I was able to find some Steam games he might like and install them, but because he does not have internet at his house I had to sort of stasis-rig Steam with verification and go into offline mode so he could take it home. The problem as of late is that it will no longer connect the internet or WiFi, which is unsurprising since the laptop is over a decade old now. That means that any time the laptop forces a shutdown or runs out of power I have to bring it over to my house, re-set it up, and send it back, still running, and make sure he plugs it in before it dies because the battery only lasts about 30 minutes lol. I have been able to somewhat explain to my grandfather what the problems are, and that fiscally it isn't worth fixing or trying to find parts for at this point. He asked why he can't install games that do not connect to Steam, and I explained that it is hard to find the types of games he likes now that are compatible with the older OS and don't have to install via some kind of internet connection. Lo and behold, he goes and pulls out a box of about a dozen discs for most of the old games he loved to play. I have tried to install them, both on the HP laptop (Windows 7) as well as testing them on my husband's newer laptop (Windows 10), but they aren't compatible and won't actually run once installed. Is there any way I can convince these old games to function on newer machines? His old desktop used Windows XP. I tried finding some of the games for free online, but it's very difficult to find such old games that are legal to download and don't need to constantly verify ownership via internet connection. I know most of the old games he enjoys, like Age of Empires and Caesar 3, are available on Steam, so if there is a different way of making that work please let me know. I'm currently also looking into getting him a new basic laptop for ~$200-300 USD that has a big enough screen for his old eyes, which would fix the internet problem (sort of) but still won't allow him to play the old games. If anyone has any alternative suggestions, such as game launchers that let you purchase or download games through the internet but do not require secondary verification in the same way Steam does, please let me know.
  3. Oxenfree is available in the Epic Games store for a limited time! Thanks to @MadCast: Wazap for the info!
  4. I have work until 8 but I'll do my best to come in later! I love these kinds of events
  5. I really wish I could but I just don't have the time right now. Hopefully I can join you for something in the future!
  6. This was a lot of fun and the group worked really well together in my opinion. A few small issues came up during the campaign, but Stan took everything in stride and kept the game and story going very smoothly. 11/10 would LARP again.
  7. Bump! You can also come in to the Discord voice channel that the event is held in to listen to the shenanigans, as long as you aren't disruptive and keep your mic muted.
  8. Yes, anyone is welcome to do this if they create an event! I try to peruse the forums each day before I post the announcements, but if it isn't in the most recent threads I will probably miss it. Please message me on Discord if you schedule an event and I will be sure to include it the day-of!
  9. After getting a little bit of feedback on what I've been doing already, a common problem I noticed is that a lot of people don't feel like the games they really care about are equally represented. I must apologize, because I unfortunately do not have the ability to play most of the currently popular games, especially big new titles like Division 2 and Anthem. I have included news that I personally felt was relevant, but that mostly just includes things about League of Legends, and that is not fair to the majority of the community who play many other titles. If you have any games at all that you would like to see more news or updates about, please mention them here for me to reference going forward! You can also add on any new releases in the future here so that the announcements are always about current information that MadCasters care about. Thanks in advance 💜
  10. I had a similar experience and agree that she deserves a bigger thank-you. @MadCast: RedJustice has been awarded the Fellowship Bronze Oakleaf. She already has the Silver Oakleaf (?), Help Desk, and Sensei awards.
  11. I will eagerly attend and have no issue making that window. It would be better for you to contact me on Discord regarding character creation etc. Thanks so much for helping run another one of these events! To anyone considering: it is an absolute must in my opinion to experience.
  12. Ah, this reminds me of ye olde Minecraft...
