  1. Hi everyone, is there info on the Engstrom Carrier anywhere? Like to do comparisons. Yes i have played with it and found out what its like but just to see the data in front of me would be great. Cheers
  2. The problem is opening those files. As i understand it, they are Mac files. How does the mac files open in a windows evironment. I have PM regnow for clues but as of yet they haven't got back to me. Cheers for the reply.
  3. HI everyone. Long time player, only a couple of posts... reason for this one is that i have DL UCCE v2.0 the full version from regnow/digital river and it is only a small 353KB DL. called "Download UniversalCombatCE_2_0_DR now.1.2D0D17.efw" I opened it with 7 zip and the files are UPX0, UPX1, certificate and .rsrc. I have asked to get the CD as well, but does this mean the i am recieving the same thing? They have no file extensions and i am no wizard. What is this and how do i get it to work?
  4. I have had fun devising this plan of attack. I am open to objective criticism and opinion, but every commander is different and depending on your own tactical brain, this may seem tedious or time consuming. Given the nature of the game, i think the later is justified. Taking out the bunkers, launch pad and Early warning radar helps your fighters to level the base without to much hassle from the ground or air. To do this i prep my marines and send them and my AE to a shuttle. I then send a contingent of prepped marines to the transporter. I prep my fighters and using the same waypoint method SC has devised i get them ready for launch. I deploy the shuttle and fly to a pre-designated waypoint over 20 clicks from the base and fly in real low, in order to stay under search radar. Land about 2 clicks out from the base, designate said targets using the P key, deploy my marines and from the CREW menu and order them to attack designated targets. In order to stop my marines from getting blasted by enemy, I go to the TACOPS screen and transport the waiting marines to a point not for from the C&C building (which seems to be the place from where a majority of the enemy ground forces appear from, and under SAD orders) and watch my transported marines take care of business. I prefer to lead from the front so i usually find myself dying, (i find using cheats to easy and dissatisfying) but you can safely command all your troops from the shuttle. Once your marines have destroyed these objectives, The transporter crew can be EVACed, and the shuttle crew RTB. Give these orders in conjunction with ordering your fighters to launch and RESUME WAYPOINT order. Once they get planetside you can order them to attack any craft or structure using TACOPS or the priority list TAB key in support units mode. Then sit back and watch your your guys attack. For extra firepower in the air, i like to steal any Enemy fighter and help my pilots out. Good hunting.

    Universal Combat - First Impressions

    The scope of this game is absolutely phenomonal. To think that from the ground to the sea (although i haven't had much success at piloting any naval craft yet), then to the sky and beyond is a concept that should appeal to any hardcore sim, strategy and any tactical orientated mind. Obviously each individual person is going to encounter different issues with graphics, sound, FPS mode,(like not being able to command ground troops effectively and accurately, but as mentioned this is not HALO or trying to assimilate it). But given the range of playability and range of careers, not to mention that any craft that's in the game can be piloted or driven. I, on first impressions am very happy with my recent purchase thank you very much.

    Is this worth getting?

    hello everyone, long time browser, first time poller. The best thing I have found with this game is its longevity. The ROAM scenario is awesome for just making up your own missions and generally wreaking havoc. The most enjoyable games are limited only by the scope of your imagination. And i think people owning this game have very large and absorbing imaginations.
