Talon, you never told me you were the champ?! ARG!!! I'm in for it now. Doesn't make a difference though, I've boxed myself in in our game.

I thought you knew wacko.gif sorry

But on the brightside you're learning the way I play the game so you can expect certain similarities in my future games and use that against me next time thumbsup.gif

I've been challenged to two other games because of this thread. Am I over my head here? Nah! I always seem to turn things around after a while.

I can't say I don't recognise those players. But don't worry you'll be fine.

I was holding out for the chance to get a stalemate, didn't think I was going to manage it for a while there.

I was convinced you were going to end up with two queens laugh.gif

I know, I saw it for a while too, I was really hoping the exchange of knights would make it easier to keep track of your queen and stop it. But in the end you were too determined to get it, and I just couldn’t stop it grin2.gif

I was convinced you were going to end up with two queens 

I wasn’t actually to interested in getting a second queen, I was really just hoping if it was close enough to queening you’d concentrate on it rather than go for my back rank grin2.gif …. Didn’t work wacko.gif

Ok, since the PM system wont send you it, I'll post it here

I can't get past this page, the links just don't work. It complains about ActiveX but I already have all that enables.

Try this:

Problem: I receive an error message regarding ActiveX controls when I attempt to login at Hoyle Online.

Solution: On top menu of the web browser, select TOOLS --> INTERNET OPTIONS. Click on the SECURITY tab.

Click Custom Level.

Change the following settings under "ActiveX controls and plug-ins" to ENABLED:

Download Signed.

Download Unsigned.

Initialize and script Active X Controls not marked as Safe.

Run Active X plug-ins.

Script Active X controls marked SAFE.

Click on OK.

On the INTERNET OPTIONS menu, click APPLY and OK.

Then refresh the Hoyle Games web page.

Are you running any firewalls or anti-virus programs ?

Try disabling them temporarily to see if it helps, if not then at least that eliminates them as the cause.

Nope, all off. I just double checked.
