Racing Form

Author File Description
Maggie
File Details
Minimap:
Narration files included; Poseidon required!

Racing Form Adventure Introduction: "After the rigors of discovering and establishing a foothold in the New World, you have decided that it's high time for folks to kick back and start enjoying themselves. Being a gambling man, you think you know just what the people want - plenty of racehorses and a place to race 'em. And you are determined to raise the finest horses ever ridden and build the largest racetrack in history."

Racing Form is designed for all levels of Zeus players -- as usual, those who desire a greater challenge should bump up the difficulty level if they wish. As its name implies, this adventure will eventually require a LARGE hippodrome... so leave room for it!

The narration files for the first two parent episodes, the colony episodes and the victory text are included in the main download, "RacingForm.zip," which also includes the .pak and .txt files. The narration for the last two parent episodes can be found in the Miscellaneous Downloads section, entitled "RacingFormNarration.zip."

Be sure to extract the RacingForm.zip and RacingFormNarration.zip files to a newly-created subdirectory entitled "Racing Form" (notice the space between the words), under your /Adventures directory. To eliminate the "open play" bug, also COPY the Racing Form.pak file to the /Adventures directory.

As always, your comments and suggestions are most welcome! This adventure was real a giggle to create... I had a little fun with New World names and personalities.

Enjoy!
Best, Maggie

quakeii Before I really start playing this, the game loaded and appears on the Zeus side, not Poseidon and there is no hippodrome tab to choose under administration in episode one. If that is your intention, will the tab appear later in the episode because building a hippodrome is a goal in episode one?

Quakeii:

This bug has me mystified. I removed all my own files from my "Racing Form" directory and replaced them with those I downloaded from here at Heaven Games. The adventure showed up under Poseidon and played fine. You must play this adventure under Poseidon because hippodromes are required in every parent episode and the hippodrome feature should be present at the very beginning.

Does anyone have any suggestions about this?

Thanks,
Maggie
quakeii I too have no answers. I downloaded the files again with the same results. The game Racing Form again appears in the Zeus section. I have downloaded several Poseidon fan created adventures including your own Love Hurts with no problem in the past. They play perfectly. WHY is this one appearing in the Zeus section with NO Poseidon buildings, including the hippodrome? Mystifying.
Dawn I'm having the same problem. I downloaded it and it shows up in the Zeus game not Poseidon. I would love to play this game.

Some help please,
Dawn
quakeii I am glad that someone else is having the same problem. Sometimes you feel like you are doing something wrong if you don't get any feedback. Let's hope someone can solve this soon!
quakeii I have the fix from Nixon at Impressions. Put a COPY of the Racing Form .pak file in the root directory of the Adventures folder. It works and now the game is recognized by Poseidon.

bobT Hi there

Havent played yet but will be shortly. I noticed the post suggesting to copy the .pak into the root adventures folder. I also noticed that you have stated that in your original post here Maggi :)

There is one further problem with some POS custom adventures. The need for the .set file also to be included in the custom folder. If you havent included the .set file, and if this is a POS adventure, you can end up with this problem.

Okay! Whew! Thanks for the tip, BobT!

I have just (08/06/01; 5:15pm PDT) uploaded the "Racing Form.set" file in the Misc. Downloads section, but it may not show up on the downloads list until tomorrow.

For those of you who are having trouble getting Racing Form to play under Poseidon, you'll need to download the .set file, and add that to both the /Adventures and /Racing Form directories.

Sorry about the trouble, folks! I hope this little snafu doesn't discourage you from giving Racing Form a try! I promise to include the .set file in all future Poseidon adventures!

Best, Maggie
BigKitty During the first episode, I tried to build a santuary to Athena but I can no longer produce wood. I stopped being able to after Cerberus attacked, yet even after he was killed, I still can't make wood. Is this supposed to happen?
laurels I absolutely love your adventures Maggie! This one is once again a true winner. Was it you that created an older one with a beautiful leaf in the map? Either way, all of yours so far have been very funny, and with your..em..ingenious take on ancient new england cities this one makes to be another funny winner. I see you even had Detroyt in there, though I have to wonder about your obviously biased opinion of Demoyne! (land of gold enchantment? hmm not quite what I was thinking)
Thank you for hours of play and can't wait for the next one!
