Tips and Cheats

Postby DaFoxx » Tue Dec 27, 2005 1:04 am

Not being the worlds greatest gamer [although I DID finish Red Alert :eek:]
I 'sometimes' have to resort to various nefairious methods to achieve my goal [short version - I Cheat]
Now I'm not proud of this, but it's a fact of life .......

So :
What I'm looking for here is NOT a list of sites, but more of a 'suggested' route, and not for the newest BIG game of the day either......

I'd like to see some ideas to get through the older games; Red Alert comes to mind :)
I DID it, bit it took me bloody weeks :eek:

Two things let me finish games:
    1. Persistence
    2. If persistence fails, try a walkthrough that will give you tips and hints. I like hints more than direct instructions. www.uhs-hints.com seems to be great.

Sometimes the light's all shining on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been.

I like the hints thing
FAR better than having it all at once [as it were]

but I don't really DO the new games
so I think I'm stuck with good old fashioned cheating :D

Zelda was the only game I ever finished.

On Morrowind I cheat. But I don't play it to win, so is cheating really cheating then? I'm with you, Foxy. I use the cheats in Morrowind because I just like exploring, plundering, and killing. I only plunder, kill, and cheat, to fund and further my explorations. It's all about exploring new lands.
For all that I am....I am not.

as stated in my first post :
the only game I've EVER finished was Red Alert :shock:
although I did finish it for both allies and soviets :D

So even though I've resorted to cheats, I still can't finish ......
could be that someone is tying to tell me something .......
















they're telling me I'm CRAP at games :D

Freespace

Postby dinowuff » Thu Feb 23, 2006 2:23 pm

Ok. About a year or so ago, I found a copy of Freespace. I had finished that game years prior and had forgotten I even owned it. Anyway I pop the thing in to see how it would run on my dual xeon server and my son was watching me "typing the puter". So last night the boy, now 4, asked if he could drive the spaceship. I loaded the thing up, enabled cheats, and off he went. But now after he kills all the ships or they all just go away, he want's to continue the game.

He can't play in regular mode, and I remember there was a way to have cheats follow you from mission to mission, but I can't find it on google. Anyone remember how to do this?

Anyone ever played the game?
