if the game decided how to manage your units all you'd do is push the button.

How's the fun? Put the game in a slower speed (1-2x) & tell your bombers where to land. it's easy.

i believe if you buy another SN, you can run another copy & logs in to a game twice, once as a spectator & once as a player. I've done player vs player on my comp but never tried spectator. Is that considered cheating or a "tactical advantage"? :)

like said above, if you're that desperiate, why play? unless you want to kill the server before you loose even though you're cheating. :D

You make good points, but there's a small note you might be missing. Vista will run fine on a non-dx9 card, it just won't use the flashy Aero interface. Therefore it's recomended that you have a DX9 card for the best experence that's something I keep forgetting because, quite simply, Microsoft does...

didn't know it was legal (don't keep up 100% on windows releases). That's a good thing. :) i guess i was speaking to the "wrong" crowd. We all have DX9 cards, or will buy them for gaming. We know where to find them cheap. But majority of computers/people out there don't have one & don'...

RTM is out... legally? eigther way, Ms isn't exactly pushing the 64-bit advancement. Heck, I have BETTER 64-bit support in linux which MS touts as a reason to use Windows over Linux (better overall support-hardware, driver, etc). They should of just ditched the 32-bit version. Heck, they require a ...

i belive there is a "glitch" where if you tell a plain to attack, then turn (or something to that effect) it will do a sharp turn.

but i always forget the turn radius when i launch fighters. :) Many have died needfully. :D

from the testing i did just now, they are ~the same radius. that's just sending them a little ways away & then recalling them though.

the turns radious is based on how fast the object moves. fighters move faster so they have a larger radius.
