Many of you may already know about MyPlayCity.com games. They give away free games, with a catch. They have advertisements. Today, I will show you how to get them free and without ads. It works for all of the games on their site that I have tried. For this example, I will use Empire Builder: Ancient Egypt, which can be found at http://www.myplaycity.com/empi…..e_builder/. The direct link for the installer is http://files.myplaycity.com/fi….._setup.exe. Download the game, 89.1MB installer, (94.5MB unpacked and fully installed – so you need that much space on your hard drive) and install as usual. Nothing too difficult so far. Now navigate to the installer folder  (for Vista, C:/Program Files (x86)/MyPlayCity.com/Empire Builder – Ancient Egypt) and locate the (7, I think) internet shortcuts. Select them all and delete them. Now look around for game.exe, NOT Empire Builder – Ancient Egypt.exe, as that will show you an advertisment on load. You can create shortcuts and what-not from game.exe. The game.exe file shows no advertisments (because you deleted the internet shortcuts – it originally open myplaycity.com after playing) and no start-up ads (as if you ran it through Empire Builder – Ancient Egypt.exe). That’s it!

Can I rewrite a bit of that? I found some of it hard to understand.

Now look around for game.exe, NOT Empire Builder – Ancient Egypt.exe,
as that will show you an advertisment on load. You can create shortcuts
and what-not from game.exe.

You’ll want to look for game.exe (the actual file game.exe, not the one with a name like Ancient Egypt.exe).  Right click game.exe, and select Send to>Desktop (Create Shortcut). The reason for this is that Ancient Egypt.exe just loads ads, and then loads game.exe. We want to skip the ads and go right to the game. 

Oh, the site that was :(

I’m sorry about that. I’m terrible with words (numbers are more of my thing). Anyway, your explanation was way better than mine, so thanks.
