    xtracting mining drones

    incidentally, it isn't possible to destroy your own shuttles - at least not with the guns. I tried to shoot the shuttle, but the lazers appeared to just deflect off.

    xtracting mining drones

    I ordered my shuttles to tow an enemy battle cruiser - which destroyed them. Then, I towed the enemy to a friendly star station and bought some shuttles and extracted my drones. Worked great.

    quote:destroy your shuttles and buy new ones I thought about doing that... seems like in other games I've had shuttles killed or stolen and couldn't buy new ones. I'm not sure if my problem then was that I didn't have enough credit or if I wasn't doing something correctly. I was either in logistics or tactical loadout and when I clicked on the missing shuttle the response I got was that there was no replacement available. I tried at a couple stations, including galcom. Anyway, I've got lots of cash right now, so I'll give it a try.

    quote: Remove all cargo in shuttles. If thats not the case then just load a previous save, The cargo bays are empty. I'd hate to go back to a previous save because I've kicked some serious butt while working on this problem.
  5. Any suggestions? So I've been mining and extracting with no problems, then I suddenly can't get my shuttles to extract the drones. I even hopped in a shuttle myself and tried the extract option there. And, I tried recovering the drone using the tractor - tried both from the cc and from a shuttle. In both cases, I can tow the drone, but I can't recover or deliver it. All I get is a failed docking error. My shuttles and CC are in 100% good shape, and since all 4 mining drones are deployed, the problem isn't that the shuttle I'm using already has a drone loaded. I made sure the shuttle craft cargo bays are empty (although that shouldn't have any bearing on the problem). I made sure the marines assigned to the shuttles have an AI rating of at least 18. Finally, I looked through all 11 posts I found that had the words 'mining drone extract' in them. Any ideas?

  7. quote:If you get as far as the DC clip, READ the FAQ.1. I read the Troubleshooting FAQ. Maybe I am not recognizing the information that I need. The FAQ states that I have to have at least DirectX version 8.1 and Media Player version 7.1. I have DX version 9 and MP version 10. 3. I also downloaded the DirectX control panel applet and set all the debug sliders to 'less'. 2. the Macrovision post suggested that an upgrade from DivX 5.1 should solve the problem. I never had 5.1. Installing 5.2 gets me as far as seeing the DC clip. I was not seeing the DC clip 'till after I installed DivX 5.2 3. Regarding Nero: I just downloaded v., which has a release date of December 3rd, 2004
  8. Process explorer will not show codecs. You have to go to your multimedia settings in control panel for that. >> I looked, and didn't have divX codec. but, just for kicks, I downloaded version 5.2.1 - now I get as far as the dreamcatcher vidio clip before I get the message. btw, what version of Nero are you using? Have you updated to the latest version? >> I believe I've got the latest update - 6.6.01 or something like that.
  9. I believe I have checked everything in these posts - do you see something I missed? - Here's the error message: Protection Error Debugger detected - please close it down and restart. Windows NT users: Please note that having the WinIce/SoftIce service installed means that you are running a debugger. - I just bought and installed the game. I don't believe I have DivX installed (I searched for it, just in case, and returned no results) Appreciate the help...
