ok, now i'm confused. before you said the IV mirrors were fine, but now they sent you a virus? I'm getting a 404 error too. I see two explanations: a) they got hacked. b) your browser is bugged & it's re-directing your download. I've had IE do this if it got bugged (that's why I don't use it). I...

both fileplantes & filefront said a size of 58.5mb for the dowload. sure you got it off there & not a "questionable" site (IE tried to warez a copy?)

also, do all your anti-virus stuff in safemode.

in "Starship Troopers" the soldiers fire mini-nukes (still not sure how that works). A nuclear war doesn't mean BOTH sides have nukes, just one side uses them :) Wasn't released in theatres but in "Animatrix", the two shorts (The Second Renaissance Parts I & II) on how the ma...

check your firewall. I forgot to tell zonealarm to let defcon 1.2 through all the time & while it was ZA was asking for permission to get through, the setup window didn't appear. I had to tell ZA to let it trhough first (I'm assuming Defcon is waiting to see if it can get access or not?). Put de...

i've been playing defcon since release & got all the patches. SP has worked fine for me. You can't add AI & disable internet broadcast in the "advanced" game setup?

That's not true, if I understand you correctly. There are two ways to defend against the attack if you realize that you're being betrayed. I'm assuming you won't be able to know. IE you're EU & allied with Africa. Africa fires nukes at (what you think) us Russia, then they hit you. They normall...

bombers from EU won't reach the US? I thought they did.
anyway, make sure there's a max timelimit. then you can't have a standoff. Or (i belive) you both could ally & then win the game together (hugs & kisses for all!)

so you want to make it easier for you to loose? if you're winning why change something you've adapted to?

I don't see a reason for your suggestion.

I'm sure you've heard all this before, but trying to reach a continent passing over another renders your nukes completely useless because the game doesn't consider height. Nukes in mid flight heading for continents on the other side of the globe can too easily be shot down by the "transit"...

i'm with feud on this one. it IS cheap because they have no way of defending. Period. I don't belive that was intended in the game.

but it IS in the game so it's legal. :)
