As an avid fan of Role Playing Games (RPG), I am often intrigued by the complexities and intricacies the developers built into the games. The high replay value of these games provides endless hours of entertainment and value for my money. Each time I play, I experiment with various combinations of resources or characters to achieve different outcomes. I am continually amazed by new quests I find, or new tips and tricks I did not discover previously. Forums and chat groups dedicated to these games formed a staple diet for gathering new tips and tricks. These provide further mileage of what I could get out of these games, and also active feedback of what other gamers thought about them.
My latest obsession is Interplay's Baldur's Gate II. I did not play the original BGI, but as it is, I am already heavily mired in this second award- winning version.
What I am going to show here is how I use TrackEngine to monitor the latest tips provided by other gamers on bulletin boards and forums. I quite like the discussions going on in PlanetBaldursgate, a site dedicated to BGII, and I would like to show you how I monitor interesting discussions going on in the forums there.
Step 1: Pick your Favorite Forum of Discussion
Step 2: Create a Bookmark and Track
Step 3: Receive New Postings
Open up the TrackEngine mail - Voila, all the new discussions initiated are highlighted in BLUE for you. Saves you all that trouble of going back to the site and trying to remember and identify what you read or did not read, doesn't it?
You will notice that only NEW discussion topics are highlighted. In the BGII forums, whenever a new message has been posted to an existing discussion thread, the discussion topic gets pushed to the top of the forum. TrackEngine has built-in intelligence to identify that this is an existing topic and therefore would not alert you. It only alerts you of new discussion threads started. Cool, isn't it?
