Re: EW I notes & observations

Backdoor level: There was no message when that level's objectives were done (big "Objectives Completed", that is.) Dr. S's speech (backdoor_done_1) needs something ("Good Job") to let me know it's time to leave the level. I didn't know. I know there's the generic "Press ESC...

Re: EW I notes & observations

Hmmm. See a few quotes down, where you say, "....You should have used the Dishes." I couldn't activate the dish on this plateau without finding the control tower, so I couldn't send the squaddies though the Dishes to this far plateau. ... Ummmm... really? Yeah, I did play the original wit...

Re: EW I notes & observations

Backdoor level: there was no control tower for the dish on the far plateau. By design. I didn't really see a reason to have one there. Hmmm. See a few quotes down, where you say, "....You should have used the Dishes." I couldn't activate the dish on this plateau without finding the contro...

EW I notes & observations

Hi trickfred, I just finished EW I, which was the first mod I've ever tried. I already sent you an email about a crash, but now that I've finished, here are a few things I thought you might want to know. First off, I'm running on a Mac, with Darwinia 1.4.2, and running your 1.4.2 EW I mod. Also, the...

Source or pseudocode?

I'm a (thus far) unemployed Mac programmer... Any chance you have source or notes or pseudocode (or program graphics) I could translate into a Mac version of your program?

Stuck DG screen shot

StuckDG.jpg - I noticed the little guy 10 minutes before this screen shot, seemingly circling to nowhere, as if one foot were stuck in the ground. When I found him so much later, and standing near an Officer with a "Follow Me" flag, I grabbed a picture.

xander and trickfred,

Thanks for lending a helpful ear. I think this documents everything I could find that matters. I trust you'll send anything important along to The Powers That Be. If I find anything else I'll chime in again.

MissingArmour.jpg - This shot is a bit later on the same level. There were a few times where the left button stopped placing new items, and I had to quit the program and re-enter. One of those times, Armour I'd placed at the near end of this "corridor" was gone when I came back. Is it pos...

Hrm... I see what you mean. I don't think I have ever seen anything like quite like that. What do your graphics settings look like? Especially the z-depth (or whatever that setting is...). xander Screen settings are full-screen 1920x1200, Z buffer depth is 24 bit, all the detail settings are High a...

Xander, I'll look that up and report in a bit. In the meantime, here are four window-based screen dumps: FourTasksNotThree.jpg - In this one, you can read that Dr. S warns me I can only have three tasks running at once, but you can see I have four in the Task Mgr.

"DG?"

Oh yeah, what does "DG" stand for? Darwinian Green? Guys? Girlie-Men?
