    Progress Update

    Well yes I was being sarcastic, I thought, given some restraint a critical spare part would be reasonable. I also found it odd that people wouldn't want new gameplay in a new game. Granted you do have to be true to privateer but that doesn't completely tie your hands either. I mean if you just...

    Well first off I don't see how hiring a space tanker to refuel from or being able to radio a repair ship whenever you want is better then having spare parts in your hold. Of course maybe they didn't have advanced repair droids back in that time and you'd have to land somewhere first, in which...

    Breaking News: Electronic Arts 'Taps Privateer (March 9, 2006)

    I wonder what having these games licensed to gamptap means for older boxed copies floating around on CD? I don't mean the ones on E-bay but at on-line stores that sell never sold leftovers or at some swapmeets for example. Of course I also wonder what that means for selling your own older copy...

    Progress Update

    Well like I said I like the idea of being SOL in deep space, without risk it'd be pointless. Believe it or not some people don't want it easy, like in Elite for example. When I played privateer I always got my jump drive shot up when I was jumping in confed space. They had a heavy and 3 swords...

    Progress Update

    Well I was thinking more if your jump drive got destroyed, fuel wouldn't help you there, only a shipyard.

    Gl::loadDLL load failed 6, 126=The specified module could not be found"

    Yeah it's enabled, it's not the videos just the computer voice that crashes it seems. For me SO came with WCP gold.

    Pffff, wussies. Getting lost in space is a good lesson for ya. Don't take stupid risks and save often. I reather like some realism so long as it's not frustrating or detracts from the game.

    Breaking News: Electronic Arts 'Taps Privateer (March 9, 2006)

    Gee I wonder what kind of "multiplatform emulator" they could be using? (cough DOSBOX cough cough) I hope someone reports back on how this service works.

    Gl::loadDLL load failed 6, 126=The specified module could not be found"

    Didn't work :( I must have really broken something when I uninstalled. Have to try a clean reinstall, not that I miss in-flight comms really but I'll want SO working for that multi-player patch comming up.

    You could also lose your jump drive and be stuck in a system with no shipyard. Too bad there were no floating junk yards in privateer to salvage parts from.

    If you mean "avoid sound skipping" yes I did, I'll try it without that and see if it works. I had it on before though.

    Progress Update

    I have a question: How many writers/mission designers are working on this? And if so who are they? Or is it too early for a story yet? Hmm, guess I had three questions...

    EA VP Pushes Digital Content Distribution (March 3, 2006)

    I've bought download only games but that's not what I'm refering to. Now mind you I haven't tried it yet so I could be wrong but there was a news story posted a few days ago about GampTap. You pay a access fee so you can play older games. Great, but you don't buy the games, as I understand it...

    Progress Update

    Deadlines only stress me out and make me want to give up or avoid it altogether. That's why I like dev blogs, they just say "nothing happened this month" or "we just got this cool thing working" but don't force you to worry about "when when when".
