I have had the Windows version for what seems like forever. Started replaying it a few days ago.
I take it he registered a long time ago.
You can buy just about anything you need from Kalixa who lives on Witch Finger in the far west of Garendall. She also sells a pair of boots which will increase your speed.
A long time ago I did an analysis of stat strategy. You can read it here.
Did you get your registration problem solved?
But the game IS registered! I have even deleted the "registration" application.
That may be your problem. The registration info is stored in the registration app. if I recall correctly. I suggest you do the following:
You have some valid points to which I do not have any good answers. Only the administration for ASW has such answers. I believe PoG still works on Windows as well. Perhaps you could ask this question on Ambrosia Banter or Help on the way where you're more likely to get noticed by someone actually employed by the company. We moderators have no say on such matters.
- - - then give us the updated version for when they're done.
Not going to happen.
What are they busy with anyhow?
Why did they close 'is it over'?
I closed the other thread because it's all been said. More than once, I might add.
What happened to Coldstone?
Nothing. And that's the point.
Sad but still hopefull,
To EasyEd, Two Jacks, macmaxbh, and anyone else out there with concerns for the wellbeing of PoG,
I find no evidence with which to still be hopeful. It should be obvious to all by now that ASW has moved on and discarded our beloved game by the roadside. There is no cause for tears or anger. We all had fun with it while it lasted. It does amaze me that this topic has had so many "hits" (6250 and counting) but I suspect that most of those are made by a small core of hangers-on who keep expecting some turn of events. There are no events in the foreseeable future. Because of this, I am closing this thread. Everything about this topic has now been said.
The forum is still open for comments, questions, or discussions. Please refrain from posting rants.

Seriously, ellrx, I had my three degrees before you were born, I haven't locked a thread in ages, and if the kids don't learn how to write correctly in school, perhaps they can learn something here.
I'm glad you were able to get that bile out of your system though. It's not good to have it eat away at your insides.
My former opinion was that you were intelligent (if somewhat hard to understand) but I might have to reassess that now. You, of course, are entitled to your opinions as well, be they misguided or not.
I'm so far to.
I have a question: What do the stats do? (Strength, Vitality etc. etc.)
You're so far to where? Or did you mean "I'm so far too."?
A discussion of stats is worth a topic all by itself. If you type "stats" in the search box at the bottom of the main forum page you will come up with many threads about the value of statistics.
Briefly, Strength increases the damage you can do to a foe with each blow. Vitality increases your health points on each level-up. Luck gives you a better chance of getting more and better things dropped when a creature falls. Dexterity allows you to score more accurate hits. Marksmanship (or Perception) is only important if you use ranged weapons (Bows.) You have to get your value above 15 in any area before you notice any change.
You can also find this information in the manual which comes with the game. Manual?? Who ever reads the Manual?
could you tell me if I can register it now?

I rember reading somewhere that you could buy a registration code from someone else as long as the seller is destroying their version of PoG and getting rid of their registration code.
No, to both. Registration data contains information about the specific computer to which it is registered. It also includes info on the date it was registered, the name of the person who bought the registration, the email used (if any) and other data personalizing the registration. If one were to copy the game or registration off my computer, for instance, the registration would burp and indicate that the game was not registered. If one then tried to renew the registration, an email would be sent to my address, not their's, saying there was an attempt to register my game.
Please re-read my post about four posts up:
.... you cannot buy a registration for it so you'll never be able to finish the game or play most of the plugins.
I'm sorry I have to burst your bubble. ~RD
