syntax error

Postby tommy060289 » Sat Aug 28, 2004 11:05 pm

whenever I try to do anything on the task manager i get something saying syntax error(i think this is an error as while it looks like part of the game it makes no sense).

When the game loads up I get no fly by, i can control the camera but that is it, I cant start anything. All I could get was the syntax error in task manager.

Could someone pm how to post an image ithout putting it on a website or do I have post it on a website. Is there anyway to upload onto the darwinia forums.

You'll notice a flashing string at the top of the game screen, saying "Press 'h' for help". Do it. It helps.

Bring up the Task Manager and move your mouse to the top of the screen. This will give you a list of valid gestures.

Hold alt, then move your cursor to the side of the screen, it should take you to another screen showing one of the following:

- Valid gestures
- Message history
- Research screen
- Mission objectives screen

In order to make a gesture left click and drag your mouse in the shape you want. Let go of the mouse button when you are done. If you do well, you will run the program you want.

Oh, re. your first post. Unfortunately, you can only post pics from another server. See if you can ask someone for a little space for yourself to use.

Dont click and drag, just shove the mouse to the top of the screen
