    Got a question for anyone who knows hardware and XP

    That the drive is even showing up in the Device Manager tells me you've probably got it installed correctly. Of course, it's pretty hard to install an IDE drive incorrectly these days, what with the cable being keyed to only go in one way (that generally being with pin 1 facing the drive's power...

    Win2000 Pro SP4 with WC4

    Yeah, I've never gotten a lot farther myself. Never did find where the bad code was. I've got a new idea, though. Take a look here: http://www.crius.net/zone/showpost.php?p=279168&postcount=86

    WC3 Kilrathi Saga WinXP

    And now to raise the dead... Watch me kick an ancient thread back into a begrudging existance... I've got some new ideas to try out. All this "set it to low priority" business got me thinking... Our CPUs are too fast, of course. Setting to low priority just gives all other programs a higher...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    Well, I've been meaning to muck around in the code for a while, but haven't gotten around to it. Work, the new Thief game, and upgrading all have me preoccupied. :) I'll get back around to taking a wack at it eventually.

    Java in IE

    I don't usually use IE, myself, but sometimes you have to when a page is poorly written or uses ActiveX (like WindowsUpdate). For those occasions, I suggest Avant browser. It's not really its own browser, but a smallish application that adds a lot to IE. Sure, it's still got all the security...

    Java in IE

    Well, the Java that runs in IE is a browser plugin, so... MS would really have to specifically code against it. That, I imagine, would bring about another lawsuit that they would, again, lose.

    Java in IE

    If I'm remembering correctly, Microsoft did not include a Java Virtual Machine in Windows XP as they did in previous versions of Windows. You'll need to download the Java VM from Sun, the creators of Java. You can get that here. Be warned: It's about 15 megs. As for your FTP downloads, that...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    Hmm... Ya know what? Come to think of it, if I do the same thing to WC4 DVD (set it to low priority on start, that is) my joystick works. I hadn't yet been able to get it to, though others like gulikoza told me they haven't had any problems. I know the WC4 CD exe was detecting it, but not the...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    The patch soley fixes the VirtualProtect crash that happens in the KS version when run under Win2K (or under WinXP if you were to rename the exe). However, I am investigating the WC3 lockups. I have a bit more elegant method of doing the same thing you do. Setting the game to run in low...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    Okay, anyone intersted in this fix can visit gulikoza's page. You'll find links in both his and my sig. My patches are tiny. Something like 2 Kilobytes when zipped. You'll find patches for WC4 DVD, the alternate WC4 DVD gulikoza came across in his efforts to get them working, WC4 CD, and WC3...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    Ah, but there's a trick. WinXP knows about WC4 and automatically applied the compatibility fix when the exe is launched whether or not you have it set to Win95 or 98 compatibility mode. At least, I think that's what it does. Anyway, the CD version crashes on VirtualProtect as well. I can try...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    Well, I've got the patchers made for both versions, if you want them. They're tiny, but I don't have any puplic place to store them. And they may not be the final version I want to release into the wild because it seems the joystick isn't working in Win2K. At least my USB one isn't working...

    Sure. Here's the changes to the Win95 CD version : 0000FBCB: 68 0000FBCC: D4 0000FBCD: 40 0000FBCE: 4D 0000FBCF: 00 0000FBD0: 6A 0000FBD1: 40 0000FBD2: 50 0000FBD3: 68 0000FBD4: 64 0000FBD5: D8 0000FBD6: 48 0000FBD7: 00 0000FBD8: FF 0000FBD9: 15 0000FBDA: 6C 0000FBDB: E3...

    A word on WC4 in Win2K - I'm working on a fix.

    There we go. Got a local variable in and it's running fine, though I'm sure it could use some testing. I have the DVD version of WC4 so I guess I'll have to modify the regular exe as well for anyone with the CD version. I've been told WC3 has a similar problem under Win2K, so I can probably...
