Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions. We will start by explaining some principles of the game, then move on to the hints and tips.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Question: I can't get the game to work!?! I click on the button and nothing happens!?!
    Answer: There are two things that "A Spell 4 All" needs to work:
    1: ActiveX content must be enabled - That's what reads the javascript that is the "inner workings" of the game. 2: Cookies must be enabled as well. This is how the game keeps track of progess and allows you to save/load the game between sessions. 3: Currently "A Spell 4 All" is NOT MAC FRIENDLY. At all. Sorry. 4: FireFox and/or MS Internet Explorer (v5 or later) are recomended if not explicitly required. if you wish to use a different browser, realize that you do so at your own risk.

  2. Question: I got the game to work, but now I can't cast a spell. What do I do?
    Answer: Two pointers and a hint:
    1: You MUST have the book in your inventory to learn any new spells.
    2: You MUST have MANA in order to cast spells. How do you get that? Play the game. If you see an option to discuss something with someone - try it. The game is designed to lead you through the first few steps in a very small environment to teach you what to do and where to go.
    3: One little hint. You must "USE" a magic stone to extract its Mana, and this must be done in a place that carries its own magical power/undercurrent. There. Now have fun!

  3. Question: I've noticed a Bug/Flaw/Exploit in the game. What should I do?
    Answer: There is a thread in "General Chat" category in the Forums at "The Collective" that is the intended place to post error reports. Alternatively you could email FirstBorn if you'd like a more direct route.

  4. Question: Why doesn't the site contain full nudity or sex scenes?
    Answer: In the past, this was out of respest to the host service, and the general public, that no material considered blatantly pornographic be used. With FirstBorn taking over the trend will more than likely continue out of respect to Wizard and his initial intentions.
