|Harpoon Classic 2002 is now available for purchase at:
There are currently two purchase options, Electronic Download and CD-ROM
via First Class Airmail. The price of the Download is $30.00 (USD).
Shipping and Handling cost for the CD-ROM is an additional $8.00 (USD).
It is the policy of our on line merchant, eSellerate, to ship CD's
anywhere in the world within 48 hours of an order being placed, so for
most US customers, the CD should arrive in the mail 3-5 days after
placing the order.
As promised, those of you who previously purchased the HC2002 upgrade are
entitled to a $10 discount when purchasing HC2002 GOLD. To ensure you
receive the discount, please click the "More Info" link directly above
the "Buy" button when you load the URL listed above. You'll need to
provide the same e-mail address you used when you purchased the HC2002
IMPORTANT NOTE #1: If that e-mail address is no longer active,
you will not receive an e-mail confirmation of your purchase and
registration serial number. Be extra mindful to copy the new serial
number generated during the course of this transaction. You will need it
to run all but the Demo scenarios in HC2002 GOLD. (And since the letter O
and the number Zero are easy to mistake, your best bet is to Copy and
Paste the registration serial number into a new .txt or other document
for later retrieval.) Please use the HGSL support list to report any
problems in receiving your discount (link provided below).
IMPORTANT NOTE #2: When ordering the HC2002 GOLD CD-ROM, you need to
click on the "Add to Cart" button (at the bottom right on the second eSellerate
screen). This will add the $8.00 Shipping and Handling fee to your bill
and your CD will ship within 48 hours of your order. When you purchase
your CD, you are automatically entitled to the Download, so you do not
have to wait for the mail to install and run HC2002 GOLD.
The Download is a 24+ MB file that includes the HC2002 GOLD Game Engine,
Scenario Editor, Platform Editor, and the HCDB (HC2002 GOLD's newly
updated database). The CD-ROM includes all of the above, plus Access
Runtime for those who do not have MS Access 97 or later installed on
their machines. And, since the CD also includes a several hundred
megabyte NEW WORLD MAP (it's implementation is our next goal in the
ongoing development of HC2002), we strongly encourage you all to order
the CD-ROM as well as the Download.
Purchase is currently by Credit Card only. Within a few days, we will
post notice on how to purchase HC2002 GOLD for those of you who prefer a
Money Order option.
Installation and Registration:
Upon completing the purchase, those of you who choose to download will be
linked to the HC2002 GOLD Download Site. Choose from any of the three
mirror sites listed there and your download will begin. Upon completion,
double click the Installer file, "hcgold_full.exe" and follow the prompts
to select a destination directory in which to install HC2002 GOLD. Next,
for those of you who own HC97, use the BattleSet Utility button to import
the EC2000 files into your new HC2002 GOLD directory.
You are now ready to register your copy of HC2002 GOLD. Use your newly
created shortcut, Start Menu icon, or double click on the Winharp32.exe
file, to open the Game Engine. Load the first scenario in the GIUK
BattleSet. Click on HELP in the upper menu bar once the scenario has
loaded. A drop down menu will appear; click on REGISTER HC2002. Finally, retrieve
the registration serial number you saved earlier and paste it into the
registration window. Click on OK, and your copy of HC2002 GOLD should
now be registered and fully functional.
Note on MS Access and Access Runtime:
The Download does not contain Access Runtime (to save bandwidth), which
is only necessary for running the Platform Editor, and even then, only if
you do not have a working copy of MS Access 97 or later on your
computer. To get Access Runtime (8 MB Download), please visit:
Please continue to use the HGSL support list and/or the HULL for all
support related questions. We hope this all runs smoothly, but if there
are bumps in the road, we'll respond as soon as is humanly possible. The
links to these are listed below.
Congratulations on your purchase of HC2002 GOLD. Good Hunting!
