ACK! I’m trying to install Neverwinter Nights which I got second hand a couple years ago from a charity shop (I am a big spender) and I’m getting so pissed off. I can’t get it installed because apparently I’m missing a “Play” disk. I thought it would be easy to find a fix, but being an old game (well, eleven years old…) I can’t find any answers on the Bioware or Atari websites and I can’t find any less legal solutions anywhere else.
If I find the person who gave away a game without all its disks I swear…

The people who lived there no longer experienced this gruel as a special smell; it had arisen from them and they had been steeped in it over and over again; it was, after all the very air they breathed and from which they lived, it was like the cloths you have worn so long you no longer smell them or feel them against you skin.
