Cloaked ships do not have contrails.
quote:the name of the game "battlecruiser"(or with "universal combat" if with a patch)
Sorry but this don't make much sense. There is no name change with a patch. Make sure you have the right patch for the right game.
Yes. Just received my copy. Getting ready to install it and run it through the paces.
What ever is in the refrigerator.
When your Chief Engineer gets to an AI of 35+ he will start assigning engineers to repair component in the ship. It does not matter if the component is broken or not it is going to get fixed. I always had the CE assigning the engineers to fix the bridge. Made me think he was a little on the feminine side (redecoration the bridge?). The only way to stop this is to take the CE off duty. The good thing about this is that if you ever crash land some place and don't have the parts to fix the ship, the CE will have the engineers fix the broken components with out any parts.
P.S. Do a search and you will find that this has been discussed before.
Ah, there is more to this story. Vanlester has filed 16 previous claims of injuries at Wal-Mart stores and other places she has shopped or worked.
Try working at a place like that during this time of year. Makes my current job like working at a daycare.
If they have been biting each other for a while you are going to have a hard time getting them to stop. What it all comes down to what kind of discipline they respond to. A good example is my son. He is a year and a half old. The boy has my pain tolerance. So when my wife gives him a swat, he looks at her like she is trying to beat a horse with a q-tip. She now has to set him in his bed and he does not like that one bit. Me on the other hand when I discipline him all I have to do is talk to him in a stern voice and tap him with one of my fingers. Find out what works for you and do it every time they bite and you will see the problem fad away. It will take some time and effort.
A little old lady walked into the head branch of the Chase Manhattan Bank holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young man at the window that she wished to take the $3 million she had in the bag and open an account with the bank. She said that first, though, she wished to meet the president of Chase Manhattan Bank due to the amount of money involved. The teller seemed to think that was a reasonable request and after opening the paper bag and seeing the bundles of $1000 bills which amounted to right around $3 million, telephoned the bank's secretary to obtain an appointment for the lady.
The lady was escorted upstairs and ushered into the president's office. Introductions were made and she stated that she would like to get to know the people she did business with on a more personal level. The bank president then asked her where she came into such a large amount of money. "Was it an inheritance?" he asked.
"No." she answered.
"Was it from playing the stock market?"
"No." she replied.
He was quiet for a minute, trying to think of where this little old lady could possibly come into $3 million. "I bet." she stated.
"You bet?" repeated the bank president. "As in horses?"
"No." she replied, "I bet people."
Seeing his confusion, she explained that she just bets different things with people. All of a sudden she said, "I'll bet you $25,000 that by 10:00 o'clock tomorrow morning, your balls will be square."
The bank president figured she must be off her rocker and decided to take her up on the bet. He didn't see how he could lose. For the rest of the day, the bank president was very careful. He decided to stay home that evening and take no chances; there was $25,000 at stake.
When he got up in the morning and took his shower, he checked to make sure everything was okay. There was no difference; he looked the same as he always had. He went to work and waited for the little old lady to come in at 10:00 o'clock, humming as he went. He knew this would be a good day; how often do you get handed $25,000 for doing nothing.
At 10:00 o'clock sharp, the little old lady was shown into his office. With her was a younger man. When he inquired as to the man's purpose for being there, she informed him that he was her lawyer and she always took him along when there was this much money involved. "Well," she asked, "what about our bet?"
"I don't know how to tell you this," he replied, "but I am the same as I've always been only $25,000 richer."
The lady seemed to accept this, but requested that she be able to see for herself. The bank president thought this was reasonable and dropped his trousers. She instructed him to bend over and then grabbed a hold of him. Sure enough, everything was fine. The bank president then looked up and saw her lawyer standing across the room banging his head against the wall.
"What's wrong with him?" he inquired.
"Oh him," she replied, "I bet him $100,000 that by 10:00 o'clock this morning that I'd have the president of Chase Manhattan Bank by the balls."
Not another count down......
This is a good one. In the ####### spot add your own word.
Anger management... this technique will make you feel better!
When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know.
I was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I had forgotten to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered, saying, "Hello".
I politely said, "This is Fred Hanifin. Could I please speak with Robin Carter?" Suddenly, the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude.
I tracked down Robin's correct number and called her. I had transposed the last two digits of her phone number.
After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again.
When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled, "You're an #######!" and hung up.
I wrote his number down with the word '#######' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him up and yell, "You're an #######!" It always cheered me up.
When Caller ID came to our area, I thought my therapeutic '#######' calling would have to stop. So, I called his number and said, "Hi, this is John Smith from the Telephone Company. I'm just calling to see if you're familiar with the Caller ID program?" He yelled, "NO!" and slammed the phone down.
I quickly called him back and said, "That's because you're an #######!"
One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I had been waiting for the spot. The idiot ignored me. I noticed a "For Sale" sign in his car window - so, I w rote down his number.
A couple of days later, right after calling the first #######, (I had his number on speed dial), I thought I had better call the BMW #######, too.
I said, "Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?" "Yes, it is."
"Can you tell me where I can see it?"
"Yes. I live at 1802 West 34th Street. It's a yellow house, and the car's parked right out in front."
"What's your name?" I asked. "My name is Don Hansen," he said.
"When's a good time to catch you, Don?" "I'm home every evening after five."
"Listen, Don, can I tell you something?"
"Don, you're an #######." Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I had a problem, I had two ######## to call.
But after several months of calling them, it wasn't as enjoyable as it used to be.
So, I came up with an idea. I called ####### #1.
"You're an #######!" (But I didn't hang up).
"Are you still there?" he asked.
"Yeah," I said.
"Stop calling me," he screamed.
"Make me," I said.
"Who are you?" he asked.
"My name is Don Hansen."
"Yeah? Where do you live?"
"#######, I live at 1802 West 34th Street, a yellow house, with my black Beemer parked in front."
He said, "I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers."
I said, "Yeah, like I'm really scared, #######."
Then I called ####### #2.
"Hello?" he said.
"Hello, #######," I said.
He yelled, "If I ever find out who you are?"
"You'll what?" I said.
"I'll kick your ass," he exclaimed.
I answered, "Well, #######, here's your chance . I'm coming over right now."
Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at
1802 West 34th Street, and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover.
Then I called Channel 13 News about the gang war going down on West 34th Street.
I quickly got into my car and headed over to 34th Street.
There I saw two ######## beating the crap out of each other in front of six squad cars, a police helicopter, and news crew.
NOW, I feel better.
Operation Flashpoint: Resistance. I really enjoy the game. I have played all the FPS like Doom, Quake, Halflife, Unreal, ect.... and to me they are all the same except the newer they are the prettier they look. Game play is the same. Operation Flashpoint has three good stories that keeps the game interesting and fun. You are not stuck just on foot. There are tanks, helicopters, airplanes, and other vehicles to drive or fly. I like it so much that when my original disk got scratched (kids ) I went out and bought a new copy. There is community support for the game. People are making new weapons, solders, and vehicles for the game. I am looking forward to part two of the game. Operation Flashpoint
Alt+D would not work when trying to enter the BC because your AE was still locked on to the shuttle. You would have to lock on to the BC to enter the craft.

My mistake was that I read the book first. I had a hard time putting the book down. Then the movie came out. I loved the book so I had to see the movie. I had never been so disappointed in my life. Get the book, read it, and enjoy.
Prostate checks!!!! I know some doctors who would like this game....
Wonder if it comes with a web cam?
It is not a saved game problem. I have found that if you make a copy of your saved game, then uninstall the game, reinstall the game, and put the saves back into the save dir they will start working again. That is the only work around I have found so far. I can run the game for days with no problems untill I close the game down. I have had the same problem with both BCM and BCMG.

There is another mention of Battlecruiser in the magazine. In the Mad Dog McCree review (page 116), Matthew Peckham writes "I'd rather play the unpatched version of Battlecruiser 3000AD with my eyes stapled open for 24 hours straight then waste an 11th minute on this game." He gave Mad Dog McCree a 4% rating.
