Just applied the 1.31 patch for windows, to my old 1.2 copy, and the game runs, but there's one minor HUGE problem, no matter what I set the resolution to, the text is squishes and I can't read the text except for the big text that shows up on the number pad. All the options, the maps, everything, i...

problem with your idea <_< warheads aren't generally accessible to outside electrical systems, they're controlled by a mechanical system that runs an electric system that is generally kept completely separate and impartial from ALL other systems in the building (or the boat).

problem is this isn't the "old days", unexpected network loads are automatically investigated by spiders, and if you cause enough havoc, servers and even hubs will just drop your connection all together. Quote: from WarStoke on 11:29 pm on Feb. 15, 2004[br]Well IRL you would throw an anoyn...

First, in US and Canada it's not easy to get bank records. Second, that's why most do it through Swiss accounts, swiss don't have to turn over records to anyone, not interpol, no one, and many accounts on Swiss can either be closed quickly if being traced, or can be setup anonmyously without ever be...

Goldfish: glad you figured out what was wrong, and got it fixed.

Turn down you're speakers? I thought I saw a sound off in the readme, I could be mistaken, but check just in case... Edit: or you could probably just make the sounds.dat empty, or if that crashes you, just make a file with the same contents but full of null sounds. There's one on modlink that has di...

Just about any app that runs either openGL or D3D resizes the systems output, meaning you're desktop, I can think of view games that don't, it depends on how they're made, but it's generally a pain to do otherwise. Halflife does it, HOMM does it, MM6-8 do it, Deus Ex does it I think, Red Faction doe...

Games use the cycles but not the CPU resources, when you're in win2k it's not just indicated how many cycles are in use, but the entire CPU's resources, including process threading, parallel processsing, co-processing and the processing on the math co-processor that exists in every system. A program...

First a warning, this is incredibly long winded, but I think it'd be a good thing to read anyway. First: I'd like to see the user able to buy a program that lets them read the files that are on a remote machine, or at least some of them, missions could be tied to this or not, either way, it would le...

1 - That defeats the purpose of it being integrated into the game, so it looks nice and gives it a good feel.

2 - that means switching windows, which causes refresh problems, because this game is broken and has bugs up the ass.
