    We could wory about paying later, where do you live though? I would probably buy a few copies for myself (not many people in Poland have computers, at least not good enough to run WC games, so the game can still be ther in large numbers) and I could either send you one of them later or keep it.

    Well, the price varies with the service. If you use regular Ground Postal Office, the shipping price would probably be under $10 (but then it would take months to arrive). If you take Air Mail, around $20, and then you got those insured things like UPS and Fedex that ask for upwards of $30...

    There's also a cost calculator in ups.com, but then I'd your postal code (or you'd need mine)

    Earthworm: I was hunting for Priv myself at the time, so I took a look at it. On the back of the box (yes, the box was translated; thankfully, they left the title alone), it clearly stated that the manual is in Polish. Oh, and I saw it in Warszawa (Warsaw, if you prefer [​IMG]), at the gielda. You can get all sorts of games old and new there, but you have to be careful - pirates also sell their stuff there. Unfortunately, you probably won't find Priv in any normal store (although there is a chance, since they all carry those budget lines; it's just a matter of luck).
    Oh, and in regard to translation, would you believe that in the WCP manual, autoslide = autoprzesuw? [​IMG]

    Klaus: Yeah, we've got the same problems in Poland (which is probably why I'm in Aus [​IMG]). The translations are crap, and now they are indeed getting into dubbing...

    It is? You have a Polish version of Prophecy?

    If you go to Starvector.com and look in their shipping charges, you'll see that the cheapest one is $9.95, for Small Packet Air.

    If at least they could contarct th services of a professional dubbing studio, but nooo. We get someone reading a script like a kid in a play in the school theatre. [​IMG]

    PS.: I was meaning one of those bad ones, where all you want to do is run away through the door. [​IMG]

    Heh. I was almost guilty of that one myself.
    But then again, there's always the quiet hideaway called sleep... [​IMG]

    Yes, but with really horrible acting you can't sleep... It will always involve cursing when lines are forgotten and yelling at each other at some point in the play [​IMG]

    Earthworm: _I_ don't. But I've seen one. My friend finally decided not to bother reading the manual, because it mangled things up so bad [​IMG].
