Our friends at Office Labs have spun a sequel: Ribbon Hero 2. Starting now, you can download this free game to learn some tips and shortcuts about Office. (Oh, to heck with that. Just download it because Ribbon Hero 2—featuring the time-travelling adventures of our old friend, Clippy—is fun. Even, dare I say, addictive?)
Ribbon Hero 2 follows Clippy (yes, he’s alive!) as he explores different time periods while trying to get back home. In each time period you get to explore a new game board with challenges to complete to get to the next level. Each challenge takes you into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote to complete a task. So you discover new Office features by actually using them (without actually working). Plus, there's a hint button to fall back on in case you get stuck.
Ribbon Hero 2 works for both Office 2007 and Office 2010, but more challenges (11 of them) are available in 2010. Find the download and more information at the Ribbon Hero 2 site at Office Labs.
This looks even more fun and cool than the original!
Adding a Clippy story seems like a great way to get people even more addicted to this great Office edutainment project!
Hopefully the challenges are different than in RH1 and there are some Easter eggs (in tune with the season) in there too!
Make this a Windows Phone App for Office for Windows Phone! this would be a great series!
SinnrG: Are you talking about my videos or Ribbon Hero? RH might be hard to create for a device that does not have a full version of Office. As for my videos, I'll look into the app thing. My videos are on a mobile channel at: m.microsoft.com/.../officecasual
I tried to install RH2 on a Windows XP (32-bit) with Office 2007 (32-bit), but I got the following message:
UNSUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM
The installer has detected an unsupported operating system on this computer and cannot proceed. To use Ribbon Hero 2, you need Windows Vista (or later). Please exit Ribbon Hero 2 setup and install a version that is compatible with your operating system.
This is despite the fact that both of these versions are listed in the Requirements on the RH2 project page (www.officelabs.com/.../default.aspx).
Can you tell me if the problem is with the RH2 installer or with the information (Requirements) listed on the project page?
And just wondering, can you figure out what the last sentence of the above message means ("install a version that is compatible with your OS")? A version of what?
Hoping to get some clarification,
Gil: Sorry you are having trouble. I'll pass your problem onto the Office Labs folks. You also might want to try the Ribbon Hero forum: www.ribbonhero.com/forum.html
i cannot use ribbon hero with excel 2007 and i'm using the original one
Fire your question off to the people who created Ribbon Hero, their forum is here: www.ribbonhero.com/forum.html
Ribbon Hero 2 does not work well at all, On "Canterburied Tale" I was supposed to "Apply the Title style to 'THE CANTERBURY TALES'", and I did, but it did not give me credit for it. I highlighted that title, then on the Home ribbon, I clicked the bottom right corner of the Styles box (an arrow that points down and right), and selected Title. That made the required change with a minimum number of clicks, but it did not give me credit. Apparently it requires that you drop down the Styles illustrations and click on the Title illustration instead. It is really stupid that it requires that one particular sequence be used without any valid reason for using one equally valid method over another. The two methods even require exactly the same number of clicks!
If only one method of accomplishing the task will be accepted the rules should provide guidence on how to choose which methods are acceptable, and which are not, without losing points for getting hints!
P.S. I posted this on www.ribbonhero.com/forum.html as: If only one method of accomplishing the task will be accepted, the rules should provide guidance on how to choose which methods are acceptable
fcone3: Thank you for posting to the forum; that's the best place to get the folsk at Ribbon Hero to learn about bugs they can fix.
Fantastic resource for learning !! Thumbs up !!!!
This game is awesome! It's true, one of the best ways to learn something is to learn through games either for children or grown-ups. Good for you to develop such a creative solution!
