  1. On a side note, PCGamer magazine's 10th ANNUAL GAME OF THE YEAR AWARDS issue: (page 46) YEAR IN REVIEW: "BEST FEUD: Derek Smart versus Dreamcatcher over the release of "Universal Combat". (check out the forums at www.3000AD.com)" Got my issue in mail yesterday and had to mention this.

    UC Dev Status - Ship it or give it another month?

    Im going to try to cancel my pre-order...and I know this is not what DS said to do... But I can always purchase the game if things get straightened out... To leave pre-order in will only be good for DC if anyone. I do this with regret, tho , as I was looking forward to the game (even tho it was published by DC) But I can wait for a DS approved copy, be it after litigation or be it the next game being developed.

    This is just another example of big business trying to screw the independant (and therefore having less resources for lawyers etc) "Dreamcatcher" titles have always been games that I avoid buying because they always seem to release "CRAP" or games that are not ready for the public. They are obviously not a company that is run by gamers. I bought your other release, BCMG, even tho it had dreamcatcher's logo on the box,and will buy anything else that you make... Good luck against them and I wish someone would just put them out of business as they give the industry a tarneshed image. My opinions of DC were formed way b4 I heard of BCM or DS... but what they have done to you is just icing on the cake. {edit) BTW when do we get the demo? J/K

    Universal Combat Demo Status

    any more info on when we may see a link to DL UC demo... Is it almost "later this month"? I take it we wont see our pre-orders arrive until the 2nd week in Feb.

    UC's first rating on Yahoo

    It's weird, cause if you click on the link to buy the game you get taken to a screen that says the release date is Jan. 30th, and that you can pre-order it... It looks like it is available now until you actually try to buy a copy.

    Raiders Brotherhood.

    This "Brotherhood" sounds like: "YARRR! HARRR! Kindly cut your engines and drop yer freight or else..." will be heard thru the Universe. Not a bad idea.

    Universal Combat Demo Status

    Whoohoo all right! That demo will come in handy now that Dreamburster is sitting on the release. WTG!! I assume we will find out here where to DL from "later this month" ? Thanks DS
  11. I had win me on my system and had MANY problems with many games etc. (probs with Teamspeak as well) I switched over to XP pro and all of my troubles went away... It was like magic.

    Keyboard Commands Sheet

    I bought new BCM Gold game week before last and there was a separate cardboard sheet with game commands on one side and a galaxy map on the other side... But as stated in manual "most keyboard commands are for powergamers" and you can play just fine with only mouse or mouse and stick. I only started refering to the command sheet after I had gotten used to the game and the manual was dog eared (pages coming out) ...the manual and appendexes did fine by me. (I admit there was a rough learning curve but it was well worth the trouble IMHO)

    Selling vehicles...

    yep it seems that way... i just went with a different ship that had more useful loadout (thks to the appendixes) took a few jumps to Majora and made like 500k ... and blew up my first warmonger on the way back to sol.

    Non Combat/Trade roles

    Quazar... You just answered a question that I just put up on the board a few minutes ago. In addition to several other things I was just wondering about... and more importantly, you explained how to properly use the search feature and did all this w/o browbeating us newbs jeez what a civilized forum!!! Thanks

    Selling vehicles...

    Where can I sell CAVs ? The merc loadout I have with a cruiser gave me 4 CAVs and I dont need them ATM and want to get the cash to use for a few trade runs... I have been reading the manual (pages are allready falling out) and checked the appendixes...so I hope this question isn't too offensive. (BTW I really do have adult ADD and an aging memory too boot (over 50 yrs old) but I truly love this game allready despite the my mental deficits)
