Hi: I'm a long time player of DX Ball 2. I had purchased the full version of the game a long time ago and have what I believe is that full version on an old floppy disk (3 1/2 ) that says DX-Ball 2 and then has your website address on it. Will that still load properly for me to reinstall it again. I have Windows XP which is new and I just didn't want to try to install if it wouldn't work any more. Can you provide any help on this please? Thanks so much

It should work fine.

If you'd like the newest version (which includes some bug fixes), I can look up your order and create a new download key for you so that you can download the latest copy from our Download Centre. Just send me the name, email address, and city that you order DX-Ball 2 with.

You only need to use this. All it should do is patch the game to 1.3 and would NOT replace any existing purchased boards.

I guess I don't know exactly what I need to do, so a little guidance would be appreciated. Do I need to load the floppy disk first? I didn't see DX Ball 2 in your post, so not real sure what I need to do - sorry.

* First of all, install the board pack from the old floppy of yours.
* Then download the link I put up for you on last post.
* Next activate the download and point it to the directory where you installed the board pack.
* Activate the game. It should be OK.
