  1. eBay Resolution Center: Clicking on that brings me to this page: I've already filed with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center.
  2. It says I need a copy of the police report before I can file an appeal.
  3. Actually I'm looking it up, and it sounds like I'm supposed to report it to the FBI https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx And then they will get the police involved... ...except, you know, the US government is kind of shut down right now...so I guess we'll see how that goes...
  4. Actually, I just went to look up the number, and re-read this: So I guess I do need to contact the police =/ How do I go about this? Do I just dial 911, or is there a website? Would I be contacting Maryland police, where the seller lives?
  5. I took plenty of screenshots, but haven't archived any of the pages. I might have to do that. Hmm, I don't know. https://www.ebay.com/usr/itemsfinder I don't want to call anyone, I hate making phone calls =/ I was hoping this would be a simple "submit claim, receive refund" like it usually is. It's maddening, I feel like the messages I sent eBay and Paypal were completely ignored and just handled by robots. Why would they completely ignore the seller's feedback and just automatically assume that I am the scammer?? Thanks. I guess I just have to suck it up and do this.
  6. I feel like this might be the wrong forum, but I know some of you have been in similar situations...I'm just going to copy and paste what I wrote in the eBay Community post: I am literally at a loss. Normally I would just give up and let it go, but $118 isn't exactly pocket change. Both eBay and Paypal have denied my refund, claiming that the seller provided "valid tracking information". I don't know what they're looking at, but on my end, it shows that a 1.1 pound package was delivered via UPS to the wrong name, in the wrong city, with a fake telephone number (it won't show me the street address). What I ordered is around 45 pounds. Their feedback profile now shows that over a dozen others have been scammed in the same way, or actually received an empty envelope. How can eBay deny my claim when everyone else has been refunded??? I don't understand, this seems fairly clear-cut to me. I don't know where to go to from here. The only way to go further seems to be to dial eBay on the telephone, which means I can't show them screenshot evidence, and I'll probably just get a couple hours of runaround and another denial. I've tried contacting UPS, but their refund page is broken, and it's not exactly their fault that I've been scammed. Do I have to get in contact with the police, now?? That's really not something I want to do, but I understand that this eBay user has been committing serious crimes.

    I just wish GoG didn't have everything bundled together with its own DOSBox executable. I know they don't want to have to deal with a thousand noobs asking how to get the game to work, but I hate having to download these larger filesizes, install the game, and then hunt through and delete all the DOSBox files =| Also, sometimes having the game all pre-patched can be a curse rather than a blessing. See the original Far Cry for a good example >_< Although I did find a nice fan patch that fixes the "AI can see and shoot through walls" bug. Arx Fatalis is another game that has to be downgraded if you want to run it on real hardware. The most recent patches break Windows 98 compatibility.
  8. True. It just seems lame that for $10, I'm only getting two tables instead of six. Or is it five? Frankenstein is usually free, isn't it? I don't know, I'll try out the Star Trek table and see what I think. AC/DC is pretty decent, but most of the actual Stern branded tables don't really grab me for some reason.
  9. I saw that, but I already own most of the tables...not sure if I want to pay $10 for just AC/DC and Star Trek... (which I guess is still 50% off from buying them alone).

    I didn't know that was an option. I just checked on my download last night, and of course it had failed =| Oh well. At least I have the original game, and a Win98 setup to run it on.
  11. If you're lucky, you can hit CTRL + ALT + NUMPLUS (or minus) to enable/disable turbo. I think CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + NUMPLUS (or minus) enables/disables some of the cache memory. It might help a bit, depending on the game. Aside from taking the hard drive out and hooking it up to another computer, the easiest way I've found is to get a cheap IDE-to-Compact-Flash adapter, then your computer will read CF cards just like a hard drive. You can even boot from them.

    I could be wrong, but it looks like you have to download the Outcast remake immediately, or you'll lose it. Usually, they just require you to redeem the Steam key within a certain time frame, but this one isn't for Steam, so maybe they're doing it differently this time.
  13. White?? Clearly, whoever designed the packaging has never played the game =|
  14. They "didn't bother" because they didn't have the rights to it.
