    General BCM Demo Discussion

    One more cool thing to do is: If you've got some mp3 files you'd rather hear than the regular ones, copy them to the soundfxmusic folder of your BCM demo folder, and then you can hear them by changing the in-game song # (alt-, or alt-.). But I think you all would probably not, isn't that right? Just kidding, I'm not trying to be sarcastic; the music is pretty good, except the main title song feels out of place once you are in the game (i think that the main title theme should only be on the main title). ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (SpaceStar Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    Cool! lol, some of it is pretty funny (people with ship textures, starstations with jetpack textures). ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (SpaceStar Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    Installation issues

    E5, remember, DirectX 8 is required for the game. You can choose what direct x 8 version you need here: Direct X EndUser Downloads #1: Tell him to try closing everything else off before starting the install. Close everything other than windows, and press Control-Alt-Delete and end every task except for explorer and systray. Also, since he is running a server, tell him to either exit the program (and take down the network) or if it's important, MAKE SURE TO NOT CLOSE IT. #2: The restart screen is required, because bcm needs to install a newer version of windows installer on most computers. After pressing that restart button on the win install updater, the computer should restart and continue with what is a traditional install, after booting up to windows. I run ICS on win me, and its okay. I'm not sure about the french windows version, but everything else should be working. Maybe tell him to go to Microsoft Windows Update and downloading all the required and important updates (there are some updated hard drive windows drivers there and direct x updates) Check with him, and post some update if it worked or not. ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (SpaceStar Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    Know your role

    Yeah, I love my sig too. Outlaw: Trust me. In BCM, we'll make everyone see that you don't have to be in a fleet to be successful. Watch. Lots of people will be joining Mercenaries, Assasins, and other castes instead of fleets. I also absolutely know that official permanant alliances and other partnerships will occur with indies like us. That is a must. We have to stick together, or fall, once a fleet puts us on their list (somehow I get the feeling I'll be a GalCom target soon). My first personal goal is to get enough cash, and weapons, so I can capture a station for Mercs, Raiders, Assasins, and whoever can dock at my station (its in the fleet faq, i just can't remember exactly who can dock where). BCM ships May 7 at EB Games! Get it, and go multiplayer! Remember my sig, I'll work for anyone, anywhere, if there's enough cash invloved. ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (SpaceStar Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    General BCM Demo Discussion

    Hey! Has anyone tried BCStudio? It's cool. Yeah, I found it out when I was looking around the folder for the game, and I saw the exe, and thought "I wonder what that does?" and opened it. You can view all the 3d models, rotate them, and see all the cool ships and things (black holes, and stuff), not in the demo! It's in "C:Program Files3000ADBattlecruiser Millennium Demobcstudio.exe" or the folder where you installed the game. Try it out peeps! ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    if anyone can clarify the radar issue, maybe someone on the 3000ad team, or derek? press Z to increase radar zoom press shift-Z to decrease radar zoom Ctrl-Z to set maximum radar zoom (smallest visibility, you can only see things that are crashing into you; its that close) the gameplay is much better than lots of other games i've played, like allegience, and slightly similar games like homeworld. it's so much simpler to use, but it gives a great challenge AI wise. multiplayer is coming peeps...... watch out for me........ so i'm not late. not until 6:45 central. i'll see you all around 3 o'clock central (4 east) ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    i don't think it had been discussed in the text files. i read most of them. oh yeah, you can change the radar range of your scanner on the left, but i think you can still see anyone that isn't cloaked. sh*# i'm late for school! ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

I just got up a few min ago, but i have to go. just hold on until the afternoon (after all, i only have 56k, so it'll take a while to upload). thanks about the signature; i love it too, my first sig was way different, but i changed it a bit after a couple posts to what i have now. ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    Alright, Derek. I got it to reproduce. I'll send the info in the email to [email protected] Also, can I put all the INI and LOG files into a ZIP file and then email it? Oh yea, just e-mail me your reply to my question about the zip files. [email protected] I'm going to have to log off for the night, so I'll get your answer and send it around 7:00 AM Eastern Time. If I don't have enough time before school, I'll send it ASAP (maybe around 3:30-4:30 PM Eastern).

    Scrivener, In BattleCruiser 3000, the space to planet-fall transitions were cinematic sequences of your ship (fighter, shuttle, or BC) flying into the planet. It would activate at around 150 thousand km from the planet/moon depending on the size. It only showed cinematics for the craft you were flying. Also, the max speed of your craft is slightly reduced in planet/fall mode (just your normal drag situation). I can't wait until I see BCM's new terrain engine and planet-falling with the new looking craft! ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    BCM Demo - What I think!

    Did half of you even read the readme, or even see that most of the download pages clearly said that this was a beta? Each episode will be current, and Derek said he will release them according to him releasing new Beta versions to the outside. Now what that means (if you don't already get the picture) is that each episode should run smoother than the last one, right until the game is released (estimated release date: May 7). So STOP COMPLAINING!! IT'S SO DAMN ANNOYING!! Also, remember that Derek has priorities. Graphics, Music, and Icons aren't as important as bugs and glitches. Which would you rather have: a game that looks sooooo dope (Cutting Edge, how the F*#% did they do that graphics, sound, and AI, and customizable options), but doesn't work on almost any machine, or a game with Good Graphics (7.5/10 in my opinion), Great Gameplay, Smooth Operation, Nice AI, 16 player multiplayer (not a big number, but not bad either) and actually working on 90 percent or more machines? Now, although this is such a limited demo (a small piece of an immensely huge pie), I personally know as a Beta Tester (I beta test for AOL, but i only learned about the bc series in January, and missed the test deadline :-() that the final product is always hundreds of times better than any Demo or Beta. It usually contains updated stuff to the whole product, and is obviously smoother. The last thing I would like to say is that anyone who wants this game to turn out great in the end, should at least try to send in glitches, bugs, and other misc. problems and/or comments about the technical side of the software. Keep up the good work Derek, The 3000AD Team, Beta Testers, and All Demo Players that take the time to report problems in a good fashion instead of flames!!!! I've already pre-ordered the game from eb games! ------------------ Commander Alec Nova (Terran/Mercenary) UCV Dark Outlaw (Garid Class), Pixan Raider Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    Hey it's me again (Starwind_XGP_2001, just had to register again, so my name would fit the Fleet DB registration i sent in). I am still having the same old C++ Debug Assertion error. Like I said, it usually happens around 13:38-13:48. Sometimes it shows the error, other times it just goes back to the desktop, and yet again, there are times where my computer locks up, and I am forced to hard reboot (pull the plug and put it back in, because my power button only turns on the comp and is controlled by bios). There is a rare 1 or 2 games out of 8 that work past the 14:00 game time, but I usually finish my mission objectives after that, so I haven't really tried to push it farther. If anyone can help with some input, it could help. I like to tweak my system settings and look at technical stuff, so i'll try to get some of my driver versions up for some refrence as to why this is happening. System Specs: HP Pavilon 6630 Intel Celeron 500Mhz 64MB RAM ATI All-In-Wonder 128 (Rage 128 Chipset) Windows ME 11.2 GB Hard Drive It's a great game, almost no glitches/bugs (emphasis on almost), great interface, good music and graphics. 9.4 out of 10 in my book. Can't wait for the Gold Release! ------------------ Commander Alec Nova UCV Dark Outlaw, Pixan Starstation (Lennen) -Independent Outlaw/Mercenary/Assasin For Hire Will take most jobs from Covert-Ops, and Assasination, to Recon, Trading, and Security Detail.

    lol, i will have to try that in BC3k too. haha, high inflation......... In BCM, the first thing i'll do in multiplayer would probably be capturing stations and some assasinations too, hehe. Well, I'll probably have a super bad reputation when GCO comes out in 2002. HEY! BCM comes out on May 7!! You can pre-order it at EB World!!
