  1. Really appreciate you for looking into it, but I didn't pre-order the game. The key I have is a retail key that I bought tonight around 7pm, unless they gave me a preorder key by mistake. I have my support request in, with D2D, so am expecting manual activation reply from them at some point. Thanks again.

    Got Mine!

    When you use the Mouse Flight controls, and you decouple the guns, the targetting reticle follows the mouse movement (doesn't stay locked), in the same manner it does when you use the joystick.

    Got Mine!

    The manual for the most part is identical to the original BCM manual with the addtion of the Appendix. In the appendix there are four instant action tutorials, and a new section "How Do I do this..." which includes such topics as "Upgrade My command craft systems", "Trade for Profit..", etc. There are a total of 28 of these "How to's", which for me were very helpful. Its nice having these in the manual without having to print them out.

    BCM Gold Discussions

    Just picked my preorder at EB today, and I am staring at the box at this very moment. I must say the quality of the whole package is just amazing. Box is beautiful, the manual is thick, on high quality paper, and with lots of extra tutorials and stuff in the backt. Kudos to Derek, and also Dreamcatcher for this. I cost me 44 Canadian (10 less than BCM), but it was well worth it. [ 04-04-2003, 05:47 PM: Message edited by: Mythandril ]

    Recovering disabled ships

    Figured it out, I tractored the fighter manually with the BC and it promtped me "Attempt Recover (Y/N). Previously I was attempting the recovery via the Tac/Ops menu (where I spend the majority of my command time).
  10. Is there a way to recover your own fighter/shuttle assets if they are damaged and are unable to dock with the BC. During a battle, one of my fighters was badly damaged, and the pilots killed. I have since cloned my pilots, but there does not seem to be any way to recover the damaged fighter so that I can repair it. I tried tractoring it with a shuttle and delivering it to the BC, as well as to Galcom HQ. I also tried tractoring it with the BC and docking with GQ. Im this case I do not get a dialogue saying "Do you want to deliver....", as I do with other ships that are not part of my assets. When I dock, and when I launch again I still have the figher tractored to the BC. Is there a way that I can recover it, so I don't have to purchase a new one?

    ATI Catalyst 2.1 (6094) Drivers

    It looks like the new ATI Catalyst drivers that were released yesterday (Saturday Aug. 3) have fixed the problem with the need to disable Table Fog.

    Internet Connection Options

    To the best of my knowledge, satellite performs on average a little slower on the downstream (not much) than cable, and quite a bit slower on the upstream than cable, but performs better on both that xDSL. Satellite is also subject to poor weather conditions and is significantly more expensive than all other services. Around 19.95 per month for limited, and around 129.00 per month for unlimited. Not sure about the pings, but Jaguar is probably right.

    Website testing

    Wow, both the sight and the artwork are incredible, you have a great deal of talent. The page displays great in IE 6.0.2 (default in XP). I run at 1024X768, and at this resolution the main page interface is very small, and there is a lot of empty space on the page. Also, when you click on a picture it would be really cool to have it open up fully maximized so you see your glorious artwork right there in front of you. Beleive me I'm not trying to be picky, just giving some feedback as requested. Your page already is top-notch.

    A sad time for Linux gaming.

    Just though I'd add my comments as I have been a user of both Linux and Windows(in it's various iterations) for years. I currently have a dual boot system with Windows XP on my 40 gig drive and Linux(Mandrake 8.1) on my 20 gig drive. I first started experimenting with linux back in college when I was taking linux scripting and was using Mandrake 6.0, and throughout the years have developed a love/hate relationship with the OS. For those above who have cateogorized Linux as not being user friendly, and a headache, unfortuanately have not used one of the later versions. Mandrake 8.1 is fabulous, and the user-friendly installation routine, is a wonderfully easy as setting up Windows xp. All my hardware from my MS scroll mouse to my Gforce 2 GTS installed flawlessly, including the drivers for 3d accleration. Quake3 and Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Terminus run smoothly, and the framerates are as good as they are in Windoze (btw, both single and multi-player binaries have been released for RtCW). I have a fairly large library of Loki games, and they all run well, and play great online. I can't really explain it, but running games in Linux give me that warm and fuzzy feeling. Now Linux is not for everybody, and part of the satisfaction is tinkering with the OS, and I can understand why some may not like it --> anyone who has experienced the dread "Kernel Panic" will know what I mean. Now in terms of Loki, I a truly saddened, as they were truly pioneers, but I must say I am not surprised, in August when they declared Chapter 11, the signs were already blowing in the wind. Derek, you mentioned Transgaming a little earlier in the thread, and while I wish them luck, I don't think thier route is the way to go. Their software is truly in it's infancy, and most windows games do not run well under Winex. Currently I got Starcraft and Half-Life to work, as well as the windows version of Wolfenstien, but there is just too much fiddling, and corruption with 2d menus to make any of it fun. I truly think that they should be focussing on working with developers on specific Linux ports, and not creating some "all in one" software (which I think is impossible) I truly hope that Linux gaming takes off, but I think the key to this the development of in-house Linux binaries in tandem with the Windows binaries for new software titles. Wolfenstien is a great expample, albeit the linux binaries where released at a later date. Id has always been supportive of Linux, and I hope they continue to be in the future. To my knowledge, Neverwinter Nights being developed by Black Isle will release with both Windows, and Linux versions on the same CD. Hope so. I think the problem with Loki, is that they were way behind the release curve. While the games to ported where outstanding, Myth II, HOMMII, et. al. the windows versions were out well in advance of thier Linux ports. I usually picked up their versions, even though I already had the Windows versions, just to support them. To conclude, part of the appeal of Linux is obviosly free open-sourced software. The very nature the OS in this regard, doesn't bode well for developers who wish to sell software to people, who for the most part abhor paying for anything related to Linux. This fundamental aspect of Linux and Linux users, in my opinion will relegate the hobby as a small niche market, which is part of a bigger niche market. Anyway I am blabbering now. Cheers, Myth
