    Star*Soldier Continuity & Reference Breakdown

    I noticed this on p. 49 under the year 2680: Rein Ertrobs releases the fourth book in his wildly popular series of fantasy novels set within the Darkening universe. The book, entitled Lev’s Pact, forces the publisher to restructure its flat-scan transmit hub in order to accommodate the...

    Is Blair's arrival to the Tiger's Claw in the movie really his first time?

    Hmm, I see. Nice to have new Wing Commander material after all these years though. :)

    Is Blair's arrival to the Tiger's Claw in the movie really his first time?

    It's been over a year since I've started this thread, but look at p. 42 of the new Wing Commander Arena manual under the year 2653! Because of recent heavy losses in battle against the Kilrathi, the 201st Plebe class of the Confederation’s Space Naval Academy replaces the regular flight...

    Large portions of screen go black in Privateer 2 install

    I uninstalled SpywareGuard, which I had installed, and that eliminated the majority of the blackouts (They still happen occasionally, but not nearly to the extent as before). I got the idea from here http://www.rpgdot.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=60296& . Apparently this incident was related to a...

    Large portions of screen go black in Privateer 2 install

    This problem affects my Privateer 2 for Windows installation, but also affects other games (Rogue Squadron and Starfleet Academy) I run as well. I would appreciate any help in getting this fixed. I run a Windows XP SP2 machine with a GeForce 3 video card and DirectX 9.0c. When I run Rogue...

    Confed and Militia turned Hostile in Privateer without Provocation

    I am on the Lynn Murphy series of missions in Privateer 1. Before Murphy 1, Confed and Militia were friendly to my ship. After Murphy 1, they were Neutral. After Murphy 2, they were hostile! I have destroyed absolutely no confed or militia ships up to this point. What has happened? The...

    Privateer 2 deluxe problem when launching.

    Well, that's not really going to work with me, as I don't have the DOS version of the game at all, just the windows version.

    Privateer 2 deluxe problem when launching.

    I only have the deluxe version, and keep getting the breakpoint error when I launch from a planet using Windows XP. Is there ANYTHING I can do??

    Privateer 2 Interlaced Videos

    As far as I know, I don't think there is a way to get rid of the interlacing.

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    In any case, I don't have a dual core system, just a 1.2 Ghz AMD processor. Privateer 2 is still crashing despite my trying various fixes with the Application Compatibility Toolkit. Still trying though...

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    Privateer 2 still crashes during ship launches even with dark.cfg on a mouse-only configuration and the joystick unplugged. I'm thinking this breakpoint problem might not have anything to do with the joystick at all, but may be a conflict with Windows XP.

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    In any case, I reinstalled Privateer 2 with just a mouse configuration (no joystick) and I am still coming up with the same crashes when I launch.

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    As seen in my attachment, the game controller properties window on my system is very different, with no raw data checkbox to be found (the settings button seen here doesn't lead to one either).

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    I've tried to do what you said for Privateer 2--unfortunately I see no "Read Raw Data" in the game controller applet in the control panel. I can swing the joystick around, but pushing it to its limits only gets stuff like (100%, 100%) when I move the mouse over the test screen. I am using a...

    WC3 KS Version fix on XP

    May I ask what kind of compatibility fixes you made to Privateer 2? On Windows XP, the deluxe version seems to crash frequently (but not always) when launching from a planet into space. After the systems check for the ship, just before the screen for space starts, the error displays...
