    Keeps looking for the correct cd in win2K

    It must be my computer. Tried the install on another w2k machine and it works fine. I'll try to track down what is causing my problem.

    Keeps looking for the correct cd in win2K

    Thank you. I have 2 computers available here. It does not work on either one. I will try my Granddaughters machine this weekend. In the meantime I ran over to EBGames in the Mall near me and got a replacement copy. I have the same problem with the replacement disk. I find it hard to believe it is the disk. If anyone is using win2K please let me know if you can get it to work. It would be a great help to know. Thank you

    Keeps looking for the correct cd in win2K

    Thank you. I read all of that, I think , carefully. There is no shortcut to the multiplayer game. At least none that I can find. SC: do you think I have a "bad" version of Gold. I can' seem to find the version number anywhere. I assume it is supposed to be 1.04 Thank you for the help.

    Keeps looking for the correct cd in win2K

    Thank you for the help. I tried all the open -close , restart suggestions and none of them seem to work I did find the no-disc crack and the game does start but it appears that there is no multi-player selection in the main menu. Guess I will try to return the disk to EBGames. Is a pain since I ordered it from their web site. Oh well. Thanks again for tthe quick response. Its always best to know when your in trouble rather than trying every thing in sight..
  5. Just received BCMGold . I removed the old BCM, Shutdown all running programs and the install went without any problem. When trying to start the game it asks for the correct CD although the cd is in the drive. DreamCatcher Support says I should send the disk back to EBGames. I really dont believe the cd is faulty. Any suggestions ????? Thank you -------------------- System Spec.

    BCM 1.08 Final Patch Released!

    Hi!. I tried to use the new 1.08.00 path It indicates that it cannot find the correct CD Rom Patch 10836 works fine What am I missing ???? Thank you
  9. I have tried to figure out what Im doing wrong but I now have to ask I am in space off a planet with the intention of transfering to a shuttle to land on the planet. I never make it to the shuttle. Before long I get the information that planetfall is underway. I have made sure there is no motion toward the planet and I have used shift+` . Clearly I am not doing something correctly.

    Misc Tech Support Issues III

    I think I solved my problem with CTD and reboots and corrupted saves. Win2000 allows for multiple operating systems. I installed a new win2000 OS with just the essentials to run BCM. It has been running for 2 game days without any problems. Its a fantastic sim and you can really get lost in it when the crashes no longer occur. Thank you SC.

    Misc Tech Support Issues III

    I bit the bullet and re-installed win2K.... ALL the problem are gone. Something, not BCM, clobbered the OS. Everything now works, including those save that would not load in the past. Thank you all for your help.

    Misc Tech Support Issues III

    Just a shot in the dark in hopes that someone will have a suggestion. For no clear reason All saved games, all instant action and all training missions no longer function. They start and I can control the action with the joystick, but as soon as I attempt to make a keyboard entry {Alt-T} for example. I get a CTD. I have un-installed and re-installed BCM then updated with the new patch ( in the BCM folder) I re-installed the nvidia drivers with the 2311 drivers. If there are no other suggestions I will have to re-install windows 2000 {ugh}. Any help is appreciated.

    Appendix ???

    I notice in reading thru the forum posts that two major pieces of "advice" are give One is to RTFM , and this I understand the other refers to an appendix. My manual does not have an appendix. Is there one for BCM and if so where can I find it. Thank you
