Honestly, I just find it highly uncomfortable. And I don't really find any joy or pleasure in putting myself in situations like that. I've had panics and high anxiety throughout my school years. I used to come to this forum to just read when I was anxious in class. It's much better now. But I still get panics. And I know that it is things that build up to this, and therefor I avoid things at all cost that cause me to feel unwell.

I'm glad you clarified this. I know perfectly what high anxiety and panic attacks are. I've been struggling with them as far back as I can remember. I also know they have triggers, i.e., certain things or situations that set the attacks off. You just mentioned a few of yours.

Sadly the big problem with panic disorders is that the sufferer knows perfectly that the triggers are essentially harmless. Unfortunately the panic disorder takes over and paralyzes the brain's rational thinking. This is the reason why trying to explain to a sufferer that the trigger is harmless doesn't work. I always carry Xanax. It's great for anxiety. I take it only as needed. Too much Xanax or taking it too frequently renders it less effective, plus it may be addictive for some people.

Today, a new game is available on the forum, and titled Belatout.
The content of this game is appropriate for everyone on the forum.
I'm sure shadow.97 and Maher already know the Belote coinchée, it's probably the most interesting version of the belote.


Link: https://ufile.io/3glukvpn
Note: Belatout will be available in the next version of windows 10 x64.


To put the game in English , you have to press Ctrl+L, choose "personnalisé" and browse for "JeuxDeCartes_Anglais.txt"
The rules of the game are available here: https://vincent-brevart.fr/en/reg/belote-card-game-rules.html


Note that the s&p 500 is currently crumbling despite the good earnings of Amazon.

Wasn't this the game that was included with windows 98 or xp?

No it wasn't. Freecell and solitaire are not Belote games.

Here is the webpage of Belatout: https://vincent-brevart.fr/fr/bel/bel-atout-telecharger.html
This game was created decades ago indeed. And the webpage was the same.

I was also thinking some, have you people tried different micro management games?
Games like, Factorio, Software INC, Startup company, Cities Skylines, Gnomoria, Dwarf Fortress, Mini Metro, Sims or the likes?

They're probably currently some of the games that I've spent the most time with just for the fact that you always feel that you can do things better or faster, even if you reach end game.

Well, I never tested those games.
However, I used to play Sim city 2000...a few decades ago.


aa1234779, humbert, vasudev and shadow.97 are probably wondering what is going to be the next repack.
I'm still waiting for the next game of frictional games. I'm also trying new mods (for Soma and Amnesia TDD) in order to update the existing repack.

Note that all the messages concerning new mods for Amnesia were grouped into the original message here:
http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg34947#msg34947

Note that 2 new mods for Penumbra are finally available: Penumbra Necrologue and Penumbra Twilight of the Archaic.
They are standalone mods so it has been a bit more difficult to integrate them. Some direct shortcuts are available in the start menu too. New setup.exe and setup6.bin files are being uploaded.

Note that I tested "Penumbra Necrologue". It has a well-crafted story and a strong atmosphere that doesn't rely on jump-scares. However we can see a few infected and I'm not sure this game would be suitable for Vasudev, shadow.97 and usman.

Tonight a repost is available for the game star wars Episode 1 racer. This time, it's a switch-less installer of a new version which is compatible with windows 10. In the previous topic, the setup was not compatible with windows 10. A start menu shortcut is created during the installation.

This was probably one of the best games for the nintendo 64 with Goldeneye.
here is a video if you don't know this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-r0vZFVY9w

Note that I tested another game titled Racing Glider.
I've not been able to play the game more than 2 minutes.
This game is pretty to look at, but that's all it got. The controls response feels awkardly slow. You will find yourself touching the side bands way more than you would like. And there is an agonizing music.
So this game will not deserve a repack.
