Troubleshooting:

Saving Games! (save game problem for Risk PC by Hasbro)

Problem Description: All the games save slots are full, and I can't save my game!

Here's your fix:
go to the folder with the SAVED GAMES and select all files > Properties > uncheck "Read Only"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The game is good, but I was disappointed when I attempted to save and realized I had a problem. An error message appeared informing me that the file could not be saved and when I selected “ignore” the game crashed. When I selected “cancel” the game crashed. I was screwed! After analyzing the problem I realized that the game copied the save files to the HD as “read only”. I was shocked that the game was shipped with this issue. Additionally, the code is a pile of dung I’m sure. The load time tells me that there are probably many unnecessary variables, conditions, and comparisons in the code. A game as simple as Risk should not take long to load into memory. Good game, bad coding. Contains some major bugs, but for 9.99 you can’t go wrong with this game. I think it is a great game to have available for parties or just to waist some time. Remember uncheck the “Read Only” box for the saved game files before attempting to save a game."

>> If you ever find that an older Windows program doesn't work right on Windows
>> XP, try right-clicking the program's EXE file, selecting Properties, and
