You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Picture the scene, it’s an all to near future and little Lucy looks up from her 4DS internet gaming slate. “Tell me what games were like when you were a boy, Grandpa?” she asks curiously. “Oh they were wonderful!” her grandfather enthusiastically replies. “You could go to these big buildings called shops and buy these little spinning discs, that had the games on!” he continued. “You’ll never believe this but, once you’d bought your game that was it, you played it and used your skill and guile to finish it”. “Wow gee!” said Lucy, her eyes wide with wonder “You mean you never needed to buy more gems to pass a level?”. “Darn right kiddo!”, replied her grandfather. “In fact speaking of gems, I might just have the one game here that started the whole darn gem swapping craze!”.
Bejeweled 2 should install on a modern PC with no problems. Simply insert the disc into your computers optical drive and follow all the on-screen prompts. If the installation menu does not automatically appear, browse to the CD in Computer/This PC and open the PopCDRun program on the disc.
The Focus Multimedia CD-ROM version of the game is already patched to version 1.1 so there are no patches to install. You can now start the game from the Start menu or Start screen by searching for “Bejeweled 2” and clicking on the icon that then appears.
Configuring the game
Before you get started with the game, you might want to visit the options menu. This isn’t a complex 3D game so there aren’t an awful lot of options to configure. The picture below shows the available options.
For best results, ensure that “Hardware Accelerate” and “High Resolution” are both ticked/checked. The rest of the options can be configured to taste. Click on “Done” when you have set the options.
That’s it, there are no more options to configure or tweak, now get swapping those gems!
