I'm expecting to give out this last code before Christmas so turn the spiral upside down for this next location clue.

Holiday Bundle

So what would be the typical way that Wizard101 would celebrate the holidays? WITH CODES FOR THE MOST AWESOME BUNDLES OF COURSE!

We're giving away the Evergreen Bundle and the Mystic Fishing Bundle (only one of each)

So we have a dilemma... what kind of contest to do?

I will take a picture of two spots.  One in the first World of the Spiral and the other in a random world.  

Your mission, should you choose to accept it will be to find the spot, draw a picture of the room or area and then email that to me at an email address I will provide soon. 

I think I'm going to have fun with this one.

Wizard101 Evergreen Bundle

There is a super cool bundle out in Wizard101 called the Evergreen Bundle.  It combines a home, wolf mount, spirit of the forest pet, evergreen gear and 5000 crowns.

You can pick one up at GameStop (in the US) for $39

The one thing I really love about this bundle is the house is super awesome... probably my favorite house yet.

Check out these pictures from the bundle.

Wizard101 Installing trick to save room on C drive

So I have been playing Wizard on my laptop that has a small SSD drive for the C drive (the main place to store stuff on your computer)  * Don't make fun, it was state of the art back in the day... * Recently I ran out of space entirely on my C drive after some brutal Windows updates used up all the remaining space.  I was worried I might not be able to move Wizard to my D drive that has loads of space free still.

I got looking at the Wizard config files and realized that it is all fairly basic and seems to refer to everything using relative paths.  What does that mean to being able to free up room on your C drive you say? Well it means that after discovering that I simply moved the entire folder (KingsIsle Entertainment) structure to my D drive and changed the shortcut to the executable to the new D drive location.

The end result?  I fired up Wizard and it loaded updates and ran just great! I played Wizard tonight after freeing up over 7 gigs of space on my formerly full C drive!!!

While I wouldn't recommend you try anything like this unless you know how to UN-DO it, (basically copying it back to its original location) if you are computer savvy and vexed by too little room on your primary drive you may just be able to move your wiz install to an alternate drive where you have more free space.
