The Elf with all the answers sadly needs quite a few. (Good news/bad news department)

    Good, possibly great news! As a pre-birthday gift, Papa Elf got me the deluxe edition of MM-X. (MMX looks too much like Roman numerals.) We're waiting till tonight to install it, since it takes 11+ hours. Since it is the deluxe edition (only $5 US extra - the whole thing costing $29.99 US, which is about half what most new games cost these days.
    Bad news: since it's been nearly 15 years since I've been able to play the game, I've forgotten the keyboard commands. (This makes the third copy of the game I will have bought. The first was the boxed edition on the 3-1/2" disks, the second the CD bundle with all the MM's through MM8.) I know it's taboo to give game commands in the Tavern, for good reason. There is no manual with the game, not even online. I've figured out through trial and error how to move and cast spells, but now I'm stumped. There is an upraised hand in a "Stop!" position in the lower right corner of the screen, making it impossible to move beyond turning in place. BTW, I seem to be in turn-based mode. So will some kindly soul please e-mail me with the keyboard commands? There's a free keg of elf ale in it for you! Thank you very much.
    Very ironic: I know where to find the "Fly" scroll in New Sorpigal and how to get to the "secret" lair of JVC, but I can't even figure out how to run, fight, or any of that good stuff. Help!

    . .that the game in question is MM6, not 8. Blame it on early "Old-timer's Disease." I shall be 77 in a few days, after all.

    Firstly, I don't think too many of the old timers here would look too unkindly on me for letting you in on the huge secret that the turn-based toggle is..........Enter!

    Secondly, I would wait before plunging into MMX. There are still significant game-killing bugs not addressed in the first patch, not to mention that your GPU will probably end up toasted.

    Shame because the overall gameplay was pretty nice, the quest storyline contained some nice throwbacks to the earlier games, and the final fight sequence was solid (apart from the fact that by that stage you can accidentally kill the baddie before finishing the game as intended...... But it's still a beta IMO

    Well, I'm sort of an elder (VERY elder) statesman myself. I quit coming to the various taverns after whatever came after ME2000 came out, because my computer then refused to read the disks. The workarounds that (I think it was DaveO) devised wouldn't work for that reason.
    Thank you again. Your keg of magic Elf Ale is on its way, via e-mail.

    A friend of mine played MMX and told me it's not great and no way compares to the fun in MM6, 7, or 8. He told me, he would not play it again. No way. Do you think this game is better than that?
