  1. GREAT! Ive got the day off work too so I can try it out.
  2. Hey! How did I miss that one. Your right, my fault. Thanks for pointing that one out for me.
  3. Salvor, This is what the VCF reads reagrding this known problem. quote: The shuttle can deploy assets while still airborne. This causes a problem where a mining drone can still collect minerals if deployed from an airborne shuttle. This problem is only happening due to relaxed rules which do not require the shuttle to actually *land* first. Once the deploy/evac issue described below is resolved, this problem will disappear.

  4. Man! The more I read Viper2000's messages here, the more I want to take a day off work and play BCM all day Ahh if only there were more hours in the day.
  5. I think that you will find that he is refering to the CD key, which came with your existing version of BCM. That alone proves that you bought the CD.
  6. Your right about the 'cartoony' look. I wasnt 100% sure about the new look when I first tried the demo. IG3 does have a nice look, although the icons for Close, Flee, Attack Device etc.. are not the best in my opinion. But the rest looks good. Are you considering going back to the 'cockpit' view from the previous version? It helped for the atmosphere, giving you a 'sense' of being inside the ship.
  7. Awww I was about to post about the lighting effects on the planets, when I realised you just updated the VCF with a comment about it. Im glad you caught that one about the light direction moving with the camera. Nice effects by the way.
  8. Great news . Im assuming that this is the reason why the shuttle wouldnt take off too. Im looking forward to trying the next RC out, as always
  9. Has anyone been able to extract a team of marines yet? I cant figure it out. The shuttle lands a long way away, but my marines dont even atempt to run towards it after its landed. Ive selected them for evac, but they dont move. SC, does the fact that the shuttle over shoots its waypoint mean that the AI of the pilot is too low? I dont have any really high AI marines/pilots to see if it lands closer.
  10. He's right. I had the same thing. I figured I was doing something wrong so I kept trying. I set up 3 waypoints which were. 1: Proceed to next 2: Deploy 3: Wait for instructions. Well it landed, gave me the message about lifting off in 5.., then it counts down, and sits there. Only because of the fact I gave it the wait for instructions waypoint. Without the wait for instructions waypoint, it takes off after the countdown. OC didnt deploy, and neither did the marines.
  11. Yipppeee! another reason for staying on the computer all night long!!!! OOo im gona be in trouble tomorrow by the wife..
  12. If you can get all the good channels from DirectTV, then I would go for it. My internet via a cable modem costs me $40 each month alone!!
  13. Ah you beat me to it SC. I was about to ask you when you were planning on releasing it. Ive been on the edge of my seat for the last couple of weeks, hoping for it. [ 06-05-2002, 18:05: Message edited by: Roberto ]
