I think the game deserves a whole thread. And I'd like setting up a Wormnet game if anyone has WA and wants to play.

I think it's had its own thread before thanks to either me or Dave. I'd play, but I can't find the cds for the life of me. I've tried downloading the games along with cracks but that never worked right for me. Maybe I'll try again soon.

searched for it, didn't find. I'll try and send the ISO [CD file pack] your way tonight (that is, in about 9 hours) if you want, then you burn it and it should work.

I just found a torrent for it. Hopefully it'll work. I'll let you know sometime after it's done downloading.

I love the Worms series. They and the Monkey Island series are the only games that I really loved.

I only have the ORIGINAL on Sega Saturn, and 3D sucked.
And yes, ORIGINAL. Everyone's like "Armageddon is the original". But it's not. Worms is. Yes, there is a Sega Saturn game under the title Worms. Only Worms. Nothing after it. IT is the original.

EDIT: This is my PMS for the day.

My votes went to Mad Cow and Mike's Carpet Strike. And Prod, of course. Prod pwns. But it's been so long since I've played that game that I hardly remember some of those. But man, that game rocked so hard.

Anyone who didn't vote for concrete donkey is wrong.

I'd play, except I don't currently know where my disk is and I could never get the screen size right on this computer.

I'm downloading the game right now since I've never played it. I'm assumming I won't be able to play online with a cracked version, right?

Sinister
02-05-2006, 03:19 PM
I doubt you could, but maybe I can send you the CD's ISO so you burn and play it.

Jebus
02-05-2006, 03:20 PM
It comes with a serial key, right? If it does, then we can't play at the same time.

Sinister

I haven't encountered any cd-key verification. Download all the patches & updates on www.team17.com, and if it doesn't work I'll try sending you the ISO. PM me.

I remember reading somwhere in some Amiga mag onetime (back when an Amiga was a computer, not just something to laugh at...) that the guy who invented Worms got the idea from lying in his parents garden one day and they had a small concrete donkey statue with like two baskets hung either side like a pack donkey, that you planted flowers in. Anyway, he saw a worm in there and it all just came to him apparently.

All hail the inspirational concrete donkey!

No, it doesn't have a serial key. You either need a cd-crack or an ISO. The problem is, most the cd cracks I've used never worked for it, so the ISO is the best bet.

nieh, did you happen to use this torrent?

eh, can't seem to get it to install right.

nieh
02-05-2006, 08:55 PM
I got it from http://www.seedler.org/en/iindex.x?a=info&id=2068 but haven't installed it yet, so I'm not sure if there's a problem with it. Give me a few minutes and I'll check it out.

Jebus
02-05-2006, 08:59 PM
yeah, it's the same one. I did what the read me said but I keep getting an error when opening the game.

nieh
02-05-2006, 09:15 PM
Yeah. It said something about not being able to run in NT. I managed to fix that error and get it to pretend to start loading. My screen flickers and goes black, then it goes back to windows and nothing happens. Same problem I had last time

Jebus
02-05-2006, 09:40 PM
so I got it to work. Just do this if you didn't. Unistall it first though.

1. Mount the iso using Daemon Tools or Alchol 120% and install it normally. Restart the computer.
2. Then open up WA_Update-3.0.5.0_Beta_2.exe found in the iso file and install it.
3. Then extract WA_Update-3.6.22.1_Beta.exe(inside the iso also) to C:\Team17\Worms Armageddon.

02-05-2006, 10:30 PM
Awesome. Got it too. Thanks.

Dragonball was 1337.

Also Super Sheep, Indian Nuclear Strike, Banana Bombs, and of course the old awesome one, cluster bomb.

And nieh, you're right. I'm sure I made a thread about this.

SaiKYoU
02-06-2006, 06:43 AM
why everyone likes alot the cluster when it's a pain in the ass! it only works really good when the enemy is above you and the separation is a thin line of terrain, teh you set the bomb just below the worm and all the small rockets hit in the same point, making around 50 damage in normal conditions...

TheUnholyNightbringer
02-06-2006, 06:44 AM
Because it's the original banana bomb. And unlike the banana bomb it's unlikely to go off course, unless you're a shit aim.

Also, if they dig with the drill, and you drop one in, it kills them. :cool:

most effective weapon = Prod <---my fav

funniest weapon = Concrete Donkey <--- i was in stitches when i first used tht weapon

Jebus
02-06-2006, 09:25 AM
bah, I have no idea how to play this.

02-06-2006, 11:52 AM
I first played WA on the N64 and then I loved the game. I was looking every where for a worms game on the Pc. And then found Worms World Party, it is different then WA but still fun. I have a copied cd of it, but it works.

My fav. weapon would have to be the Holy Hand Grenade.

nieh
02-06-2006, 12:39 PM
bah, I have no idea how to play this.

You move with the arrow keys. Enter jumps forwards, backspace once jumps straight up, backspace twice does a backflip and moves you backwards a little. Right click to bring up a list of weapons that you have and click on the weapon you want to use. Aim using the up or down arrows (though there are a few weapons that don't require you to aim). You press spacebar to use the weapons. For things like the bazooka or anything that you throw, you'll have to press and HOLD spacebar to determine how far your thing goes. Ninja ropes are your best friends. Shoot it into a wall or the ceiling and once it hooks you can swing around. Push left and right to swing, up and down to extend/retract it. You hit spacebar to let go. If you're swinging and you let go, you'll obviously go flying in that direction. Once you let go, if you're still in the air, you can use the ninja rope again so you can get to places that you otherwise wouldn't be able to reach. It's pretty simple, but it takes a while to get really good at it.

Edit: Also while you're on the ninja rope, you can select some other weapons that you can use to drop on other people. Select it the same way you would any other weapon and while you're on the ninja rope, hit enter to drop it. You can only do this with certain things though like Dynamite or grenades or similar things.

Jebus: have you given it another try yet?

TUNB: Want to get a game going sometime soon?

Jebus
02-07-2006, 04:14 PM
I understand how to play it now but I just simply suck. I didn't accomplish anything in the first level of the game and it took me 15 tries to beat the first training level.

Ha, it was so cool when me and my cousins played WORMS for Sega Megadrive at my house... all the games ended up with us fighting. Gosh, I miss those times.

Jebus
02-07-2006, 06:26 PM
holy shit, this game is fucking awesome. Anyone wanna play online? I have no clue how to go about doing so though.

Preocupado
02-07-2006, 07:17 PM
i saw the Worms Armaggedon 3D for sale today, but i didn't get it cause i wanted to know if it's as fun as the classic one.

Is it a yes or no-no?

Sinister
02-07-2006, 07:22 PM
Jebus : pretty self explanatory, just get the updates off www.team17.com, then run the game and select the lower left icon on the starting menu then it's pretty self-explanatory. and you don't actually need a password.
I'll train you on all the game modes if we can set up a time. also, PRACTICE !!!

Preocupado : FUCKING YES ! even though the graphics are a bit less good (terrain blows up in bigger increments, if you know what I mean) and the jumping system a bit trickier, you gotta buy it.

edit : and it's not WA3D, just W3D.

02-07-2006, 07:25 PM
Sounds worth a try then. I'll take it tomorrow.

I just dug up my old Armageddon disc and I'd rly rly liek 2 play. I've already played 2 games against the CPU. Holy shit, this truly was one of the greatest games ever.
