Hi everybody, Dr Thick here. ive just aquired the pc game PREY and i personally haven't come across these install instructions for a game before one where you're adding to your hosts file.
(see install instructions below).
Burn or mount with DaemonTools or Alcohol120%.
• Install the game.
• Go to your c:windows/system32/drivers/etc editing Hosts file and add this line: 127.0.0.1 preymaster.humanhead.com
• Start it up and PLAY and when asked for CD-KEY enter:
can you give me simple instructions as to where and how to add this new line. also will it affect any of my computer or internet settings and do i have to change things back again once i've finished with the game? i'd hate to f*ck things up (for the sake of my much cherished bollocks, please help).
below are my hosts file settings as they are now
