That quote is a way of knowing how long a person has been using a Mac. Anyone that remembers when that game came out will run screaming when they hear "Frog blast the vent core!" xander I bought one of the "first 90 day" 128K Macs, does that count? But all it ran at first was Ma...

xander is jealous. Yes, I am. Even worse, three years ago, I could have topped that with my Mac II (it was signed, but my mother gave it away). Right now, I have a Quadra, a Blue and White G3, and my PowerBook G4. However, I think I will be getting an Intel Book in the spring, when the tax refund c...

As NeoThermic mentioned, I have also had success with landscape issues by changing the Z-buffer setting. Another technique that helped was playing in windowed mode, as opposed to full-screen.

FWIW, I have 3 G4 Macs (including 2 laptops), 1 G5 Quad (which is awesome for playing Darwinia!) and even an old PowerPC 604 upgraded to a 300Mhz G3. I also have a Dell Dimension 4550 2.2GHz P4, and my wife uses a 1GHz P3 Dell when she's not using one of the laptops. I can see owning an Intel Mac sh...

I got frustrated with the gesture system, which slowed me down in the heat of battle. I switched to icons, and ultimately to just using the F keys. This way I can quickly create a bunch of squads ready with Airstrikes, spread them out, and by selecting them using the regular number keys 1 through 4 ...

xander, How could you tell he's playing the Insurrection mod? That was his first post to the forum. -ShepFan :oops: I knew I forgot something! I just copied the text from xyzyxx's FAQ thread . The quoted text is from his section on getting mods to work. He used my mod as an example. I should have c...

Re: Darwinians revert back to version 1

The Darwinians reverted back to version one when I went to the temple. Is this a bug in the game ? or did I do something wrong. All the other programs stayed the same. How do I change them back to version 4 ?? Which version (platform & revision level) are you running? This question might attrac...

I forget TheToyMaker's context, but as an aside, sometimes the IQ thing comes up as a response to being labeled a jerk. I had an interview some time ago with a complete prick. He just wanted to prove how smart he was by tearing me down, and he did a thorough job. I did remind him at the end of his ...

So next time, say "I scored a 155 on the ... IQ test" The imperious tone and the ellipsis here suggest this may be a mean-spirited, possibly profane remark. Hopefully I'm mistaken. Yes you are. It seems the sentence "So next time, ....." has been used in that way in movies and s...

Please, not this "I've a higher IQ thing" again. It means nothing if you cannot apply it. That sounds reasonable, except that it also applies to any skill, tool, or ability you can name. Since your premise is so universal, it doesn't really say much about your complaint with the "'hi...

You're welcome. The game video G4 produced was very well done. The voice-over review went overly-cutesy a few times. The written review was very thoughtful. I get the impression they really got the game.
