Mahjongg Titans
« on: November 06, 2007, 06:15:02 AM »
Hi All

I play Mahjongg Titans a lot  ;)[which is there in Vista by default]. I was wondering if you could point me to a similar freeware version which has excellent graphics and which I can install on WinXP.

I don't know if this is the right section of the forum to post this. Please move this to the relevant section if required.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you might like to try MyJongg II.

Quote
This is a classic remake of the ancient Mah Jongg solitaire game. Beautiful tile sets, different layouts, sound. We have written a Layout Editor too, and we will release it in the future to help you build your own Layouts!!! Take a look at our future release. Some features do not work yet (like High-Scores).

Seems like a very nice donationware game to me.

Just unzip & run. No installing needed. You can use your own backgrounds if you have any .gif or .bmp files suitable for it.

Excellent! Thanks Darwin :Thmbsup:. By the way, is there any workaround to re-install these giveaway's if I ever have to re-install Windows or even install it to other systems? ;)

I think the idea behind it is that if you like it so much to install it again, you'd just buy the software. :Thmbsup: I know that's not what anyone wants to hear, but it's really the best way to not have to worry about reinstalls.

Hi! :)

A bit late I suppose! :huh:

Take a look also at pysolfc (at mah jong games). Windows distribution don't needs any more additional downloads:
http://pysolfc.sourceforge.net/
Windows dl link: http://downloads.sou...ySolFC_1.1_setup.exe

This is my favorite! :)

If you have some time check also Vegard's site: http://vegard2.no/ .
Mah Jong link is at top left corner (or just go direct to free distributions: http://home.halden.n...kp/vkp/freeware.html ).

Greets!!! :)

Sometimes, specially at games.
a) If you downloaded a single setup.exe, just backup the unzipped folder (eg. c:\program files\mygame). Zip and put it somewhere.

b) If you downloaded 2 exe files (1 setup.exe and 1 activate.exe), (eg. alawar games), run the setup and with the last free version of total uninstall, trace (only the registry, not the file system) the activator (a registry writer), for the newly added registry entries. Export them on a file and back it up with the setup.

Although according to their eula, this is a completely legal process, it is for users with some experience, so if you need any details (screenshots etc.), please tell me.

In a matter of ethics though, i'm not quite sure that could be considered "a legal process"...

No, I don't think it's unethical!

Ofcource software creation and server costs, are far away from being free for them.
So, if you downloaded a ton of free games (eg. from alawar), just go to their site and buy one commercial game, so you can support their company and show them your appreciation.
Since you'll do it, send them a mail too,  noting that you informed for their work, from giveaway site.

Just my thoughts. :)
