Blank Hi Scores
Sometimes, after a while it can get depressing to play even your favourite
games? Why? It's often the case that you never get onto the Hi Score Table
In these cases it can be very theraputic to be able to blank out the
Hi-Scores and start again from fresh. For this purpose, you can download
a Zip File containing blank versions of the Hi Score Tables
for the following games:
BlastIt, Damocles, Hard As Nails, Legend, Oscar Night, Race Game 5, Race Game 6.
To install these, simply download the Zip File, and extract the relevant
Hi Score Table File (They end with a '.hst' suffix). Then copy it on top
of the existing file.
Warning - This will completely remove the old Hi Scores.
It is recommended that you back up the old Hi Scores before copying the
new file across on top. You can do this by simply renaming the old '.hst'
file to a different name beforehand.
To download 'blank_hi.zip' simply click
upon the name.
Visual Basic 4.0 Run-Time Library
Older versions of Powerboost Software Games and Applications did not
automatically install the required Visual Basic 4.0 Run-Time Library
'vb40032.dll' into the 'Windows\System' directory. As a result you
may well have found that Visual Basic segments would fail upon loading.
Whilst this problem does not occur with current installations, which
automatically install the Visual Basic 4.0 Run-Time Library, if you
do not wish to upgrade to the newer versions (although this is
recommended), you may download the Visual Basic 4.0 Run-Time Library
separately. This is also useful if it has somehow been corrupted.
Given the size of the file, it is downloadable as a Zip
File. To download 'vblib.zip' simply click
upon the name.
Powerboost Software often uses the Zip File format to distribute files
in a compressed format. To access these files you will need a Zip
compatible program such as
WinZip from Nico Mak Computing.
