Accessible Games for the Blind!
Welcome to the web site of Freedom Games, a series of accessible games made for the blind, by the blind!
The following games are available on this website:
10th July 2005: Freedom Millionaire Update! The Freedom Millionaire software has been updated to version 1.5! This exciting new release includes a major overhaul in the sound system. It is now possible to assign any sound to any event in the entire game save for the splash screen, all through a simple configuration file! To illustrate the power of this amazing new sound system, we're also releasing a "Pro" question set: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trivia, complete with an amazing soundtrack! Download them on the Freedom Millionaire Web Page!
New! Submit questions for Freedom Millionaire via the web! Go to the Freedom Millionaire Submission Form!
Games on this site (except for Freedom Millionaire) are presently being distributed as pre-release software. This means that the games are not yet finished and are likely to have bugs. The programs should not harm your computer in any way, however use of these programs is unsupported. If you do find bugs in program operation, please let me know so they can be corrected in a future release.
Game Submissions: If you want to submit data for games (e.g. trivia questions for Who Wants to be a Millionaire, phrases for Wheel of Fortune, etc.) you may do so by E-mailing your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can choose to either type your information directly into the message, or to attach it as a text, RTF, or Word document. Please see the details about submissions that accompany each game. I also will accept ideas for new games to program, however the programming of new games may be limited by my own programming skills and by time.
Special Thanks: Thanks go out to everyone who's submitted material for the games, and who have continued to be loyal players even during my absence. Your support is greatly appreciated!
This section contains items that may be needed in certain situations to solve certain problems.
If you try running Freedom Games and are getting an error such as "Runtime Error 430: Class does not support automation or the expected interface..." then you need to perform a few updates. This is a known issue for windows 98 or Windows 98 SE. (It may or may not be an issue under Windows ME, but I've heard no such cases so far.)
To update, first download and install the latest version of Microsoft Data Access Components. The latest version of MDAC is version 2.8.
After updating MDAC, you need to ensure you're running Internet Explorer 6. To do this, either load up Windows Update and install all critical updates, or go straight to Microsoft's Internet Explorer Home Page and download and install Internet Explorer 6.
After doing these updates, you should be able to run the game.
By the way, running windows Update periodically isn't a bad idea. It will ensure your computer is kept more secure and that fewer software compatibility issues will arise.
This section contains various miscellaneous files for Freedom Games. If for any reason you need any of these files, they're here for you to download.
Freedom Millionaire Past Question Updates. If for some reason you need past update files for Freedom Millionaire's question bank, they are here. Note that you only need to download the latest question update to update your question library.
