How to Run Crysis 64 when ordered from EADM

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

If you ordered Crysis online from the EA Store and tried to run it using the 64 executable, surely you you were as perplexed as I were when I got a message asking for the DVD to be inserted in the drive.

A really big problem for a game purchased and downloaded from the internet, but luckily, after around a year since I downloaded it from the EA Download Manager I found the solution to run the game using the 64 bit executable.

To fix the “Insert DVD” problem just go to your Crysis directory and copy the files “GL.ini” and “paul.dll” from the folder  Bin32 and paste them in the folder named Bin64. Voila, now it loads.

How to enable Firefox’s Spell Checker

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

This post may sound stupid to some, but there may be people like me that wondered why the spell checking feature of Firefox wasn’t working “out of the box” even when it was enabled in Tools/Options/Advanced.

The truth it’s that the solution it’s quite simple, just go to the add-ons section of Mozilla.org and install all the dictionaries that you want. Once you restart Firefox, the spell checking feature will be working and if needed, you can change the dictionaries on the fly with the Right Mouse Button menu.
