I purchased and installed Rival Ball and Series 2. All seemed well. I began playing (non-network), and it worked fine up until it kicked me out with a message indicating that this was a demo and to purchase the program. What's going on here?

On the Select Board-Set screen, on the top-right corner, there's a bunch of buttons to select which board-pack you want to play. Make sure you have Rival Ball or Rival Ball Series 2 selected, and not the Freeware pack.

That was the problem--I had the freeware boards selected. It's not readily apparent that the row of icons is the selector for the different board collections, so didn't realize that was how to select one of the other board packs. Thanks!

Yeah, it's not as obvious as it could be. We learned from Rival Ball and made it more obvious when we wrote Rival Ball Tournament >:)
