http://www.klear.com has RK's Samurai for download, however this is not commercially available. Does anyone know the current status of this ?

I am being very restrictive on my use of the download, as it tells me I only have a couple more plays ..... what do I do then !!!!! crycrycry

You download it once...save to downloaded program somewhere and install Samurai.

The after you played 10 times. You install Samurai again from the saved download.

Start->Run

Type regedit in the run box.

Control-F to bring up search dialogue.

Search for Samurai.

It should come up with two values.
Name Type Data
(Default) Reg_SZ (value not set)
rndSeed REG_DWORD 0x000008 (and two letters)

Right click on the rndSeed and change the two letters to bb, that will reset your games played to 1. (aa might be 0, I'm not sure)

I automated the process because I find reg hacking tedious. If you want to never have to mess with resetting your remaining plays, do as follows.

Go to the directory where your copy of Samurai resides and use notepad to create the following file (name it whatever you want but make sure the extension is .bat).

Samurai_Run.bat
Quote:
@echo off
regedit.exe /s samurai_registry_backup.reg
samurai.exe


Now create another file named samurai_registry_backup.reg

samurai_registry_backup.reg
Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Klear\Samurai]
"rndSeed"=dword:000008aa


Now when you want to play Samurai, you just launch it with Samurai_Run.bat, and you'll always have 10 plays remaining.

I had downloaded this before but I'll get a fresh copy just in case.
I have two copies of the board game and for some reason have never played the computer version. Maybe because the board game is so pretty.

Jason, I just realized that when you posted, it stripped the slashes. Those need to be there. It should look like this ...

samurai_registry_backup.reg
Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Klear\Samurai]
"rndSeed"=dword:000008aa

What if your trial is expired? I tried entering "bb" as the value but no dice, still says it is expired?

Nevermind, Joel's method is brilliant and works perfectly even for an expired trial, many thanks. I only wonder if this will work on other trials as well.

David, I wouldn't feel too guilty, they did choose to stop selling an addicting game after all, what other choice is there, go without? No way!

Select Start
Select Run
type "regedit", hit enter
Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Open Software
Delete Klear.
Exit regedit.

You should have 10 plays again.

I can not Joel's fix to work. Everytime I start the game through the Samurai_Run.bat file it gives me an error that says: "Cannot import samurai_registry_backup.reg: The specified file is not a registry script. You can import only registry files."

The program then lauches but continues with the countdown. I own Samurai...I just want to play when there are no other players around.

Do you have any suggestions.

Wow, never played the board game before, but the interface, sound and music is top notch in this program.

The tutorial makes it very simple to understand.

Don't know exactly how well the AI is yet, I've played 2 games, 1 vs 1 and 1 vs 2 comp. I've won both.

I've very tempted to buy the boardgame, only problem is getting others to play with cry

ok that auto mated service should it rest to ten every time i play or does it only reset to ten when i double click the sam_reg_backup.reg that i made

thats how it works atm..
I am running that notepad made bat file ..
p.s when you delete klear folder from reg edit it still leaves it with no plays left,
any way at least the sam_reg_edit.reg re-sets it

I'd love a Unlock code or even beabel to buy the game for my mobile instead fo that naff cat woman game they have made...

And 2216 for 10 plays; the difference between the numbers changes by 2 for each step. Deleting the registry does not work. (Just in case someone's following the link from Sebastian's geeklist and didn't already google the registration code.)
