  1. Then try to order your other shuttle on the job.
  2. Keep trying. You must go through flux field manually. Sometimes you enter in the same region even though you go through flux field.
  3. Thnx Eclipse! I already uninstalled it, but now I'm going to intall it again. BTW, did you give XFire a notice of the ini file edit, so they can correct it in the next upgrade?

If (1), then you should be able to tractor and recover it at anytime without problems. I hadn't any problems with repeatable recovery attempts so far. If (2), i don't think you could recover it since your fighter bays are allready occupied by your own crafts. Yet i still haven't figured if we can replace a destroyed fighter by capturing an enemy craft of the same type like the one we lost... No you can't, you must buy a replacement.
  5. Which means, it's playing time folks! Let's go and see how many of us can get online today.
  6. I haven't tried BCM for a long time, but I can tell you that BCMG ran rock solid in my older machine, quite similar to yours (AMD K6-2/500mHz, GeForce 2 MX400, SB PCI 128, 128mb sdr ram, hd 20 gb + 6 gb).
  7. I tried XFire, but it doesn't launch UC mp version correctly (at least I can't get it to launch). It launches sp mainmenu in some strange way when I select launch Universal Combat multiplayer, so that I can't start a game with it, game just crash to desktop. Could someone confirm this. I already sent them a message about it.
  8. ...or you could start the repairs while on the station and then launch and let your engineers take care of the rest. 80% is not inoperable yet. I usually repair the systems up to around 80% (depends on the systems, I might let it be even lower) on stations and then let my own engineers finish the job.
  9. We tried the 2.00.01 patch yesterday and I didn't notice anything such. I'm using joystick, so I'll try without joystick later today when I'll get home.
  10. quote: Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: QUOTE]What did you do? Just stare at PERSCAN and hope that your AE's mad kombat skillz paid off? [/QB] BTW it was my AE's LF that went down to 28 not FF. I ordered my AE to medibay, fortunately he got there without getting more injured. Then I ordered every marine available to search mode (I had 10 marines out of 20 to work with: 2 dead and 8 sent to medibay) then I observed from perscan and tactical how it progressed. These intruders were really hard to get cleaned out. Everytime my marine got LF under 50% I ordered him to medibay and usually by that time other marines were healed enough to put them on search mode instead of injured ones. This is one of the many great features of the game, to manage your crew like that!
  11. Yeah, last night I had 7 intruders boarded straight to the bridge! My AE's FF went down to 28, but I survived. I lost two marines and two officers, which I cloned afterward. But I gotta tell you, that I had most blasting fun time all through it!
  12. I must agree with you Baloogan, music fits nicely with the game. Vanetian made the music, he visits here regularly. Thank you Vanetian for great music for the great game.
  13. No one will pay you for the job, but enjoy collecting cargo pods floating in the space. That's where you get your pay
  14. That is correct, the normal docking range was around 20 clicks.
  15. Hmmm... Why don't you try it Seriously, of course you can

  18. Using Hold command from command menu in the tacops gives you time to give them new escort order to avoid them attacking stations.
  19. Exactly my words as I reported about it yesterday quote: Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: I don't have a Yahoo account. So if anyone has one, please go ahead and make a simple post noting the fact that the game hasn't even been released yet and that this is just our resident troll at work.
  20. I meant, that the first waypoint should be "Proceed to next waypoint".
  21. quote: Originally posted by Ogiwan: Yeah, that sounds like it might work...now, how do i get the OCVs into position? Whenever i try to get them down with shuttles, it always looks too hot for them (although having them hit the launch pad first thing might help), and they spend like 10 mins getting to the base (they'll drop like 16 klicks out)... Remember that the first waypoint should be "resume" some 5 to 6 clicks away from the actual "deploy" waypoint. That way the shuttle will land more accurately.
  22. Have you heard about Pavel Klushantsev? He's a true pioneer of sci-fi movies. His movie "Road To The Stars" has been an inspiration for Kubrick in making of "2001 Space Odyssey".
  23. quote: Originally posted by Wyshnik: I am wondering if it is possible to order a ship that I control via c&c to cloak? There is a ship systems button and when entered it shows a box for cloak. However applying the x or removing the x seems to have no effect. Any help would be appreciated.. any help other than RTFM!!!!! Because it is not there. Take it easy By applying the x you are selecting the ABILITY to cloak. It's dependent of the AI level of the crew whether it cloaks or not WHEN NEEDED. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong SC. BTW El Che, RTFM means (depending on the level of frustration) either Read The Fine Manual or Read The Fridging Manual or even Read The F... (no I'm not going to say the word ) Manual.

(if you could buy them yet) You'll be lucky if your officers AI's are in 40% in three days. It takes much, much longer to reach 100% (if ever )
  25. I don't know what I'm doing here anyway , but I'm here
