    Smoothing gameplay in WCP

    Whoops- mist-typed my chip- that's a 1Gig Athlon T-Bird chip - so yeah, it's a fast system. I've been told I can tweak the frame refresh rate, but i have no idea how or where to do that in my video card.

    Smoothing gameplay in WCP

    Hello; When I get close to or view one of the larger ships, my gameplay becomes very choppy - I had the problem with movies skipping as mentioned in the other threads, and have turned my sound acceleration off (SB Live! XGamer). I have a 1Mhz Athlon T-Bird chip, 256 Mgs RAM, All-In-Wonder...

    Prophecy Win98 problem.

    I have a Toshiba Infinia 7230 with a AMD K6 400Mhz upgrade chip and 64 Megs of RAM. Sound and video chipsets. I installed the 98SE update a couple of and haven't run my WCP for a while, I just tried and it didn't work- I removed and reinstalled, copying my saves to a floppy. When I try to run...

    Privateer Sound Issues

    Hey, did you try using the SETUPSA.EXE program before running the game? This solved my long-running sound problem. No matter where you keep the game, put this program on your C drive and run it at the DOS prompt before you start Privateer. Choose your card's settings and click OK. If you have a...

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    Besides, I have Proph Gold which I still enjoy revisiting every now and again. Better play, better story, and MUCH better to look at.

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    I've been playing this game for over four years off and on- Except for that awesome movie where the stelteks take the derelict ship, the graphics suck. Doing so many missions left me with plenty of cash so I had the full boat of goodies. No more challenge.

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    OK! I waxed Jones! I viewed the burned-out temple! I dusted Retros without their high-falutin' new ships! I've gone to see Terrell and got the big congrats! Is that it? What about my gun? I decided what the hell, i'd take a spin through Kilrathi territory and find that they like me while the...

    I will try to look for Monte near New Caledonia. Let you know what happens.

    Monte was last seen on New Detroit. But I thought he was going into hiding? I guess I'll have to jump around in that area to try to find someone. So far the only person I can still visit and talk to is Adm. Terrell. He tells me I did a good job, but there was no retro base. Then he says Epsilon...

    OK, I've been back and forth to valhalla twice now and can find nothing. I even took some guild missions because I was bored. HELP!

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    You know, I had a feeling there was going to be a secret jump point somewhere in that mission. In fact, I thought I ran across it, bnut I was too intent on getting out of there at that point.

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    Haha, Yup, you're right- I should've learned from the last mistake. OK I did go to those systems, fought some retros, but found nothing. I'm ending in Valhalla, and there's no possible way to fly the mission in the order her describes- And believe me I tried it. Do I need to go to the...

    Moving onto Righteous Fire

    Nope haven't seen Lycnh yet- Won't he ba mad that I killed Miggs? Anyway, I went to the admiral's office, patrolled the four locations where Epsilon group was lost and found nothing- I'm supposed to find some secret base with Jones, right? Should I go to them in the order he says? I came from...
