  1. quote:Originally posted by Forever Light: Ill have to play with that a bit and see if they do display a preference on ships they would find it easier to kill. Yes, they do, it's practically the entire concept behind part of the design improvements. Fighters will automatically go for any target in order most appropriately suited for their capabilities - Interceptors will focus on anything generally small and anti-fighter before going on to other targets, Bombers will go right for Capital ships, etc, etc.
  2. ...Or you could try to hunt down one of the many mirror sites available and not have to suffer waiting in line
  3. Yup. The developers spent a long time trying to get the license from Sierra for their own development group, then just gave up. All hope of the game ever coming out has pretty much sunk under since then.
  4. Gargh! Another space game bites it. Galaxy Andromeda, originally known as Imperium Galactica 3, has been officially cancelled. The full PR snazz can be found here: http://www.cdv.de/index.php?s=cdvag&id=106...34ec6b081fdd3f4 Some really depressing news... between this and Homeworld 2, I was hoping the space game market might start picking up a little more. Now that one of the major contenders has gone down... ack. The only thing fans have left at this point is the sexy tech demo that was leaked a couple of years back - which looked and ran well enough to make one believe the game was nearly finished at the time, no less. Right now though, it looks like CDV's doing everything they can to sweep all evidence that the game ever existed under the carpet, and the official forums will probably be down soon. Blah
  5. Yes. "Everyone", of course. Ahem. *Straightens tie*
  6. hay duders whats happenin in this thread
  7. Again, DOSBox won't run Crusader: No Remorse or any other slightly higher-end DOS titles. Plus, I can even mount a Win98 install into VirtualPC to expand my legacy gaming leverage a little. Heh.
  8. http://www.connectix.com <--- VirtualPC
  9. quote:its an emulator, the best of em all hehI'm going to have to debate that, unless they've finally updated it to be capable of running Crusader: No Remorse To date, VirtualPC is the only practical solution I've found to do so. *Sniff* The memories...

    Homeworld 2

    quote:Originally posted by Remo Williams: I was to busy playing Battlecruiser to care about checking out HW when it came out. I bought a copy of it awhile back installed it then after messing with it for about 30 minutes I realized what a total waste of money it was.*Blank, cold stare*
  11. quote:Originally posted by Emmett.hendrick: The CPU idles at about 55/56 degrees once pc is booting and such it goes up to about 60/61 degrees. The CPU fan is on the correct way, but I do know what the problem is. I got a cheap case and its too small the cpu/fan sits right under the 425W powersupply and there are no other fans in the case(nor is there room for anymore) so I am getting a new better case over the next couple of days.That's pretty harsh, I'd definately check and ensure that you've got some thermal paste properly applied to the core of the CPU.
  12. Fraps will, provided your system can handle it.

  14. quote:Originally posted by Remo Williams: Thats an odd quote there Parias where you get that from?
  15. "The Polito form is dead, insect. Are you afraid? What is it you fear.... the end of your trivial existence?"
  16. The interesting backstory and 3d cockpit function have me hooked, for now. It'll at least hold me untill Steel Battalion arrives.
  17. quote:Originally posted by Epsilon 5: What do you mean? how your character / ship looks like?Ding ding!
  18. If there's one upside this game has, it's the sheer amount of changes you can make to your own character and ship. More games need that, seriously.
  19. Harrumph, no Imperium Galactica 3? How could they have missed that? Guess I'll have to vote for BCG..

    quote:Originally posted by Soback: Read a preview about this game a long time ago, and after realizing that it was linear I promptly forgot about it. I passionately hate linear games. I mean it's fine if it has a storyline, but if you can't just go out on your own, or continue playing after the storyline is over, then the game is a complete waste. That's my point, and I am sticking to it like I have for all these years.*Cough* Free Ride and Free Ride Extreme *Cough* And that's quite a strict regimen.. are you saying you've never played classics like Freespace 1/2, Hostile Waters, Battlezone, or any of the Mechwarrior series, sheerly for that reason? Ouch. [ 09-02-2002, 02:14 PM: Message edited by: Parias ]

    quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: uhm...what about the fact that you can't save anywhere you like. And if you screw up, you have to start from scratch?Agreed, this is my chief qualm with the game. However, aside from that, I found it very entertaining.. definately one of the better releases of this year. The ending was good too
  22. Guys, seriously, quit mocking the airport security goons, they were just doing their jobs. G.I. Joes are a valid and extremely serious threat to international security, and what these people did was fully justified in my eyes. I mean, geez, didn't any of you see Small Soldiers?
