On some other thread, people talked about the fact that King's bounty had very interesting tactical battles. So I thought that I could give it a try. So Instead of trying to find an illegal copy, I said that I'll at least start by trying the legit demo of "the Legend" and "armored princess" to see if I really like the game.
So I installed "The legend" demo, it tells me that I have a trial period of 999 days and that it will expire in june 14th 2014. That's fine with me, my trial will probably end before that. Then it tells me that the trial period is about to end and I should activate soon else I won't be able to play anymore. WOW, I did not know we were already in 2014, time passes faster than I think. Then I click OK ... and the program shutdown. I start it again, same message then shut down. WTF!
So I decided to install Armored princess after ward, I thought that more recent version might have a better software control system. Installed everything, start the program nothing happens. Open the process manager, start the program, the program stay in memory for a a few seconds then it shutdowns. WTF!
I don't know what's the problem, but it's the kind of things that made me stop playing games on PC. Like my friend once said, at least on console video games, you put the game in the console, push power and it works. Second, it's not very convincing incite people to buy the game legally when trying to run a DEMO is actually more complicated that installing an illegal copy.
So I don't know if I am missing something, is there other people that has experienced the same problems? I'll eventually try to install it on another computer in case it's a machine problem.
