The button on the toolbar does toggle all the sound. If you want to fine tune what you want and don't want to here, right click on the icon OR go to options->audio from the main menu.

We're just trying to keep the clutter down on the toolbar menu, and either people like the music or don't so its not something we figure people need to change with enough frequency to dedicate more space on the toolbar.

It took me a few minutes to find it, myself, as I wanted the game sounds but not the music also. I like the different volume controls for environment (I have the sailing background, of course), game sounds and music.

Please please put the numbers back on the bid bar. I am losing my eye site and am using a 23.5 inch LCD so I can see things better. When I have to try and count the little bars on the graphs for bids three sets of cards have played already......lol, don't forget us old fogies.

New version is a little slow on my AMD Quad, 1 GB Video, 2 GB Ram, Win 7, but I will tweak it a little to run faster on my system.

To those complaining about having to pay for the game AGAIN I would like to throw this out there............when George Lucas made Star Wars did you get mad when you had to pay to see each of the next 5 he made? I played Heroes of Might and Magic through number 4 and payed for each of them. Things evolve. Look at it from HWs viewpoint. They have our money that we payed way back when, 9 years ago for me now. They do have to generate new money or they will go belly up and we can all spend money flying around the country to play cards with each other in real life. The cost is really cheap. $36.00 or so for a year? I pay $70 a month for Dish and I use Spades and Hearts more than I watch TV. I paid $95.00 last night for a dinner and a movie for me and the wife. It is worth a lot more than that to me. I do not agree with all the extra charges for fooms and characters but I do not have to have those to play do I?

Just my opinion and thoughts.

Thank you for your time,

Andy

I saw a bug fix cross my email that looked like there will be a option for text on the bid meter soon.

First off, I know it was a while ago now, but thanks for patching HW Solitaire so you don't need an internet connection to play. It's most appreciated :)

Secondly, I used one of my keys for the great free year offer (thanks again!) back in early December. Although I got the initial bonus tokens, as far as I can tell, I haven't had the 200 monthly tokens added. Are these working at the moment?

Thirdly, related to the above, do you think we could have an Account History added so we can see when we buy/get bonus tokens, spend them on various store items, etc.....?

Thanks again & keep up the great work!

There was a problem with the system to grant the 200 tokens per month, I just fixed it and you now should have them.

It is in our plans to add an Account History.


Also we released updates to all the games yesterday. To get it click Help and then Check Version. This is a release candidate so be sure to try it and let us know if you find any problems.

Thanks

Have a question ...........I have seen a few of the new backgrounds and the avatar's with the new build and I like them and I wouldn't mind a fee each year to play and have the extras.........but if I upgrade I have to buy fooms?..........I will lose my action binds, the fooms are part of the old version if we upgrade we are losing fooms?........how can this be fair to take away fooms and ask that we paid for them and what about the binds we lose?
Could there be a change coming up to correct this and have fooms without buying.. something the older version already gives us?

Well its true that there is a fee for fooms, currently it's a token a foom I think. So with the free upgrade, you could use all 1600 tokens to foom 1600 times :)

Its really not taking away, its just now the new game works. Just like buying a new car doesn't take way the 8 track :) You can still use the old game since you have an unlock key just like you can still drive the older car to use your 8 track tapes.

Thank you for the responds, I wasn't aware that with the new version each foom cost a token.
Part of why Hardwood Hearts is so great is the graphics and of course fooms are graphics and we all enjoy using them. So I guess as you say I'll stick with my 8 track. :(

to login to your game just start it ;)

You can buy avatars and other times, buy clicking on the "store" menu item in the game.
