REVIEWS Read Only Memories Review
The Kickstarter-funded text-based adventure game blows away most AAA titles with smart writing, engaging characters, and more style than you can fit on an NES cartridge.

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

1024       -Sets the screen resolution for the game to 1024 x 768 pixels.

Msync      -Fixes a problem where the computer stops responding with some SoundBlaster AWE configurations.

Cheat Mode (alternate):
Enter one of the following codes during game play.
Code    Result 
CTRL+P  Build Immutable Structure  
CTRL+T  Alternate Resource Menu 
CTRL+Q  Quick Build 
CTRL+C  View End Sequence 


More Bases Advantage:
To have a better chance of winning, you might want to build more than one base. Enlarge the base you start out with, making it completely fortified with at least two castles. Then, send a scout cavalry, or some other fast moving unit, to the opposite side of the map from your base. After you have checked the area and confirmed that it is safe, send a villager to build a castle at that location and fortify that base. This is very helpful if your enemy knows where one of your bases is located, especially during online play.

Fast Resources:
Use the following trick to rapidly enter the cheat codes and get resources quickly. For wood, press Enter, type lumberjack, highlight the word, then press Ctrl + C to copy it. Press Enter to activate the cheat. Press Enter again, then press Ctrl + V to paste the word on the screen for activation. Repeat to get resources quickly. This may be used with the rock on, robin hood, cheese stack jimmy's, and to smithereens codes.

Free Ally:
When you build a market, there is a chance that a rival tribe will ask you to send them a certain amount of wood, stone, gold, and food. When they do, click on "Diplomacy" or press Alt + D and click "Ally" on the name of that tribe. They will become an ally free of charge. However, when you do this you will no longer be able to align yourself with any other tribes. This is helpful if there are four tribes in the game.
