Hey there so I just finished getting the game to work, but I noticed that there is no way to change the name from Sami to anything else... am I missing something? What happened to typing in your name and picking an avatar...? I really appreciate this guide, and your reply! :)

I have no sound. ? I got the theme song but I can't hear any of the actual nursery rhymes, which would be good as I'm playing it with my five year old, so that she can remember the songs, like I do!! From days of yore....

This is great! Thankyou so much! I can't wait to get my little boy stuck into this, as it was a favourite of mine when I was little too.

Megs, if you press F1, it comes up with commands for the game. One of which is that by pressing F2 you can turn the sound on/off. Enjoy!
