    Privateer in Windows ME

    Does anyone know if Privateer (and Armada) will work with Windows ME. Can you still use a bootdisk to get to real DOS? I don't want to upgrade if it means not playing DOS-only games ever again.

    Privateer 2: game questions

    Death's Head - I didn't see the Privateer 1/2 stats on your page, are the ones in the CIC's ships database correct? In P2, which ship is actually better, the Danrik or the Freij mk2? I thought the Freij was better but why then is the Danrik more expensive?

    Privateer 2: game questions

    Where can you find the correct stats, if not in the manual?

    Privateer 2: game questions

    Has anyone with a fast computer (PIII or Athlon) been able to have the game play at a reasonable speed without Turbo or Moslo? Apparently, there is supposed to be an in-game frame-rate limiter, but I haven't seen a computer where it has worked. Please post what kind of computer you have if you...

    State your 1st and 2nd

    I thought some people didn't consider Priv a real part of the WC series since it is in its own series... Sorry I messed up the thread

    Vote for the WC series at Global100.com

    Nothing wrong with multiplayer games. I just mentioned it to try and get the people who want another single-player game to go vote. Quarto is right. It certainly doesn't hurt to vote and maybe it will help. At least it will be fun for us to see our favorite WC games on that chart (well, fun for...

    Frame-limiting in Privateer 2

    I read something about a frame-limiting feature in P2 in a previous post (don't remember which one it was, sorry). Is it true that P2 is supposed to slow itself down without using Turbo or Moslo and it is a bug that makes it go way too fast? Is it OK on any new computers? I have the DOS version...

    The Ride

    Any info on the Ride that was supposed to come out last month? Does anyone know where it is? Has anyone been on it? Just wondering.

    Prophecy "Disk Space" problem

    I put it on CD with all of my other random game saves and stuff. My computer doesn't have a Zip drive or anything but it does have a CD writer. (In case you were wondering)

    Prophecy "Disk Space" problem

    I just deleted my scores.sim and that seemed to fix the problem. I guess the file just got corrupted somehow, maybe in my writing it to CD. I had some really good simulator scores and I don't really want to lose them, but it looks like I don't have much of a choice at this point. If you have...

    Prophecy "Disk Space" problem

    Thanks for the help. OK, I uninstalled the game without having it delete my saves and then reinstalled like you said. No luck, the error is still there. I'm going to try installing it without putting my saves back on so we'll know whether the saves are the problem. I'll post again when I'm done.

    Prophecy "Disk Space" problem

    I just got a new hard drive, put on a clean install of Windows 98 and put Prophecy and all my savegames and history back on. I can load my savegames just fine and can play the missions, but whenever I try and exit the simulator it displays the following error: File write operation failed. You...
