Ooh, that's clever. Linking to the ags game list's download url to get a more accurate download count.

Dude what the hell?
What on Earth is an .ace file?
How do I play it?
Why was this not a smaller download?
Gah?

He didn't say to use winzip :) .

Download winaze, or if you wanna do it the old way, unace.exe.

A winzip clone did it for me, thanks. And no I don't care how good the game is I'm sticking to DAP and normal download manager. Winzip crippled my PC for half a week before I got it out my system. Bitches, are microsoft.

Here is what you need to do:

1) Download the file (or files if you want the talkie) using any download manager you want, or not using any download manager at all, however you want to download it, it doesn't matter

2) Go to the website www.winace.com, download and install their free program

3) Double click on the file and extract it using the program to whereever you want

4) Have fun

Isn't Winzip a hacker's tool?

Will it take over my current download manager though? that's what winzip did and it bugged the hell out of me because I couldn't use it.

WinAce (and WinZip for that matter) is not a download manager, there is no reason for it to take control of any download manager, it's like saying the new toaster oven you bought has taken over your TV set and started showing chick flicks while your were making dinner ;)

Funny you should mention that.....but seriously, it rendered my DAP useless and insisted on using itsself for downloading and unzipping. EVIL, EVIL, OUT DEMONS OUT!
And even then it retained some irremovable files....I had to get a friend to re-write like 7 lines of code to erase them.

Hmm....maybe it would be a nice gesture if you gave some criticism on Roy's game instead of just babbling shit...
Like I'm doing right now :)

I had the game, like when it was first available, and I still can't finish it! The Walkthrough is no help. Where the hell is the machine room?

*** spoiler alert ***

The machine room is underneath the motel, you need to get access to it by first draining all the water from the pool, and than blowing a hole in the pool's floor
