Morning, all...

Ooooh.... Super !! A soft release, and non other than "Alexander the Great".

I demoed this game at the developer's site, and have been waiting for it to come here.

More later...

I'm an Alexander the Great groupie, he's my favorite historical personage. He changed the face of the ancient world. I've always wondered what the Far East would have been like if his army would have kept going. Would Alexander have escaped his early grave if they wouldn't have turned homeward? I'm busy this morning so I have to wait until tonight or tomorrow to try it

Question:

When I set this game to DL the demo, I get an "Open File - Security Warning - this type file may potentially harm computer" warning box that comes up. I know BFG are "virus free" but I don't recall this message box before. Is it safe to download the game?

I did't get that warning. I think it's safe. But you can ask CS.

It looks like a false warning, TJ. I used to use McAfee, and they kept deleting files that belonged to a game, thinking it was a trojan or such. Got really fed up with that and switched to Norton. Never had that problem again.

Some files have the type of name that suggest that they are trojans, so the antivirus system assumes it's a thread and warns you about it or even takes it upon itself to remove it. Usually it's just the name, not the file itself that is causing the problems.

I had forgotten how rotten some of the scenes look (graphic-wise). I can't believe that in the first scenes (at home), the graphics are clear and clean and nicely done. And then, when I travel to the next place, the graphics are really dreadful, inside the HOS and out of them, although there is the odd scene with nicer graphics.

Looks to me like the developer wanted to save money when making this game, and added crude images that didn't cost any money to an otherwise nice game.

Have been enjoying this game today. So glad it was a soft release. What a great little game along with the TGT as well and the regular game. I'm in IHOG heaven!

I like this game , too.

My objection : the three word text we find in Pella, is all wrong.

It is not exactly Greek. It seems to me like English translated
with the help of Google translator. Good thing is this text does
not affect any part of the story.

I could avoid the comment but it is good for the developers to
know that they are always under observation. There will always
be someone who knows something more. Sorry....
