  1. Its been a while but I too am able to sign on. Guess it was a server issue....
  2. When companies started creating computer software, they realized that, in order to have more control over their products, they made licensing agreements. So what happens when you "purchase" a game? You purchase a copy of the software and have a license to use it. Its simple contract law. Unlike music (when it was purchased on vinyl, tape, 8-track, and I still have a few of those) purchased in the past, it is easier to file lawsuits with a licensing agreement. It makes business sense, considering how relatively easy it is to manipulate the program. For audio in the past, unless you had access to the master recordings, you really couldn't accurately copy the sound, as artifacts would give away the copy. I have faith that Microsoft will consider backwards compatibility. I'm sure they will also maintain the Gamerscore as well. They are pushing Microsoft accounts and have the ability to award achievement points across many platforms. But be mindful that their bread and butter comes from the sale of games. Therefore, I'm of the opinion that there will be a fee associated for transferring licenses.
  3. If I'm not mistaken, you cannot enter these anymore. If someone knows something different or has a legitimate workaround (no policy violations) please send me a message.
  4. Does anyone know if you need to give cocktails to 5 different players of the opposite sex or just one player? I did this with one player and the cocktail did not unlock.
  5. I too have been a member of this site for a while and just started posting. Great site and I hope to work on games with the members!!!
  6. I was having the same problem so I sent in a tech help request to Atari. This is their response: Greetings! Thank you for contacting us. We are currently aware of this issue that came up with the new mandatory update. Our developers are currently reviewing this to try to release a fix as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience. Sincerely, Atari Customer Support
