  1. hell...i would be more than happy to pay 40 bucks directly to SC for these types of add-ons/updates...if they were put into a expansion pack....
  2. I got a GeForce FX 5200 128MB card from Walmart for only 100 bucks....well, 90 after i got my employee discount....i had the GeForce 4 MX 440 card....had to upgrade, but was looking for an excuse to do that anyways
  3. quote:Originally posted by Cc: quote: However, I dissagree with charging for patches. Ok. I agree with that. However most of the time Derek does more then just fix bugs. He makes additions to the game, adds functions that were not a part of the original game.Now I'am not a heavy duty gamer, but how many other game sites do you know of where you can communicate with the main game developer? well...the only publisher that comes to mind really, is Shrapnel Games. But, they are the only ones....you can talk to the devs and the publishers. In fact, one game i have from them the devs are on the forums all the time. SC, have you ever thought (or tried) to perhaps sign with Shrapnel? I am sure you have heard of them...Space Empires 4: Gold....and Dominions 2, among others.... They seem to be good publishers, and they really dedicate themselves to the indy developer. Only thing is, for the most part, they only sell their games through their online store (I think)...oh, and now gogamer.com (I believe)..... Well, anyways.... I bought it. Will buy the add-on when that is done and released....

I'd be very surprised if it runs. Your card does not have vertex shader 1.1. You've known this for several months now, right? Actually....no, i didn't. When i did figure it out...i then misread the thread....but all that doesn't matter now....I bought a new card....and updated my system info....
  5. My first impressions are...wow....great game. Love the graphics. They just look, cleaner, than BCMG. Haven't played it very much, as after I got it installed, I needed to go to bed (I work 3rd shift). My only "compaints" (I have 2 of them)....miss the 1-9 system for speed control. Taking some getting used to, using w,s,a,d....granted that is what the majority of the fps games use. My 2nd "complaint"....why hasn't LucasArts been knocking down your door, begging you to make a REAL Star Wars game????? I think Universal Combat would make a totally AWESOME Star Wars game...unless they have, and you have turned them down. On a good side note, I had to buy a new graphics card (mine didn't have the vertical shader 1.1 with it). All in all, good, good game. Great job....it simply looks outstanding. Chris
  6. nevermind my stupidity....i just went out and bought a new graphics card....so good to go....should be anyhow.... Thanks Chris
  7. ok....i really hope that this isn't a stupid question. Now I know that i need to upgrade my graphics card....but....I have a GeForce4 MX 440. I understand that it doesn't have vertical shader 1.1 or whatever. But, I see that it is supported (?), right? I understand that if i can get it to work, the graphics will be degraded....no problem....I can deal with that. But, can i get it to work? I have not been able to find anywhere where it shows me what i need to do (at least not that i am aware of).... Thanks Chris
  8. just arrived on my doorstep just over 30 minutes ago....installed, looked over the docs, and now i am going in!!
  9. just wait for them to release both RoN and the expansion together....probably would be 40 bucks for both....
  10. Dominions 2....great game....from shrapnel also. Good tbs fantasy game. BCMG....I used to have this game...but cannot seem to find it anywhere....in the process of buying it again. I have X2, but for some reason, just doesn't interest me much.
  11. hey...I like images like that in my head...hehehehehe
  12. thanks guys....i will need to restudy the manual then...just so much info to try to find and keep track of... thanks
  13. OK, this all happened last nite, I just waited to post it this morning, so I could re-gather all my info (lots happened in that game). I was a commander of a carrier...launched from GALCOMHQ...so far, so good. I head over to the moon to do some mining practice...I get my team all set up....(which I later figured out that I don't have to send an officer to fly the shuttle...doh). Anyways...I get the shuttle down, the drone is launched...so far so good....the shuttle returns...good... All of a sudden...enemy ships show up...COOL...now I will get to fight while I am waiting for the drone to finish. I send out 3 fighters, sparing the 4th one for myself. (I actually had 8 fighters...is it possible to send out all 8?). While I am trying to figure out how to get my AE to the fighter...all of a sudden...I make planetfall with the moon. hmmmm...I spend the rest of the battle trying to get off the moon...I start to cuss...I start to hit the desk, kick the dog, throw the cat....then I have an idea...why not look at the key card? hmmm....PRESS "O"????? "It's that freakin' easy!!??" I shout. My wife laughs....yep, that easy. Now, the battle is over, but at least I am off the moon. Now for the cleanup. I order my fighters back to base...only one comes back (FC3)...the other 2 just sit out there....I also notice that several of my pilots are dead...in fact. Not sure how though...none of the FC's are destroyed...they took some damage...but not destroyed...and all but 3 of my pilots are killed... Anyways, after FC3 docks back with me, I head over to GALCOMHQ again to do some repairs (it is possible to do repairs away from being docked, right? couldn't really find a way to, but then again, I didn't spend too much time looking while not being docked). I figure out how to clone my dead pilots, I repair FC3... I check out TRADCOM...I see all of these minerals...don't know much about what they are used for...other than Plutonium and Radine (I think it is those two), so I buy some of those....so my ships engines and shields will function good. Is there anywhere where I can find out what all the other minerals do, and why I would want to buy them? Anyhow, I undock from GALCOMHQ...I head over to FC1 & 2, since they are not responding to my orders (their orders for some reason are "HALT"...I assume that the pilots on the inside are dead, since I had to clone all but 3 of my pilots). I send out a shuttle to tow them back...the shuttle gets there, I see the tractor beam...but then the shuttle simply sits there...not moving. I look it up in the manual...it says (as far as I can tell), that the shuttle will auto head back to the Carrier...ok...I wait...and wait....I start to mess around with the commands...somehow it makes it back to my Carrier...but then just sits out side...I try ordering the shuttle back to base, it drops the FC and lands inside...I could not for the life of my, get those FC back inside my Carrier.... So, please forgive my NooBiness...and help.... This is one of the best games I have played (hell, it rivals...no, it beats Combat Flight Sim 2)....but it is steep...and I get kinda stuck while climbing the cliff...
  14. OK....it is settled.... I WILL get BCG....in fact, I may even buy it pre-order if I can.... now, just gotta wait....
  15. ok...thanks for all the help guys....I am getting into this game now...woooo hoooo!!!!!! One thing though....when in a dogfight...how in so you shake incoming, locked missles? Those incoming missles tear me up...so, how do you shake 'em off your tail? Oh, I have finally did my first mining mission...on the Moon...Interesting...took me long enough to figure it out but I did it.... Like I have said before...the more time I spend with this title...the more about it I not only learn, but I love...at first it kinda seemed dry and purposeless (if that is a word...)but now...it is getting fun fun fun.... SC...good job on a job WELL DONE!!! Oh, and I can't wait for Generations....just hope it will be in Babbages or EB... Talk later...
  16. oh...so cool....BUT....I am having trouble finding where I can find enemy bases on planets? Any tips? The more I play and read about this game...the more i like....
  17. ok...thanks for the responces... Just to clarify...really the only thing you can do by landing on a planet is run around? I can mine from space can't I? While playing Roaming, is it possible that their will be a planet under a ground battle, and take part in that? Sorry if these questions seem kinda basic...but I have never played a game this open ended before...and I am trying to figure out the plusses of landing on a planet, and what is possible for me to do there.... Thanks
  18. So far, I really am enjoying this game. I am learning the controls easy enough...I have figured out how to jump to different planets, and fly to different stations and so on...I have even learned how to make planetfall... But, I do have a couple of questions: 1. In the tactical computer display, when on a planet (well, actually flying around on a planet), I noticed that there are yellow and red (at least on Earth) scenes. What is the difference between the two colors? 2. What is the purpose of landing on a planet? I am not asking this sarcastically...I really want to know. I landed and got out of my fighter at the Earth M293 (I think)...there was nothing there except some buildings I couldn't get into. If I am going to land on a planet, what would be the purpose(s) of landing...and how do I know the best places to land? 3. While playing in Roam mode...I noticed that there was some enemy ships attacking. I sent out my fighters...but does the other Earth ships/stations also send out fighters? I am fairly certain they do...I just couldn't figure out how to see that that was happening. 4. This is actually me asking for a tip: When in command of a Carrier (or any of the Capital Ships), when under attack...the battle is far enough away for my fighters to have to hyperjump (I think) to the battle area...is it smart for the Carrier to stay behind? Or, should I move the Carrier closer to the battle for support for my Fighters? All in all, a very decent game so far....the more I learn it, the more I am sure I will enjoy it. Right now, I am just scraping the top layer of this game...I can see that there is going to be a whole lot of discovery in this game... Well, that is the questions I have for right now...like I said, good game...will be MUCH better once I get the hang of it and can play it better...
