    Gothri Gripe

    Yes, I got the impression from reading Victory Streak that the Sothak was going to be some monster fighter - I believe it was compared with a destroyer as a bit of a joke. Gothri are what have stopped me finishing SO1 and SO2- the only WC games I haven't played. I got to that mission with...

    The Movie. Jump points. Cats. and so on...

    I've thought about this before. My simple understanding of such things is based on reading Stephen Hawking's book where he describes the discovery of quasars in 1963: I should point out as well that I learnt the term only means "quasi-stellar" object - so they could be anything that resembles a...

    Possible Vista problems?

    Hi there, since I started running Vista a lot of things haven't been wanting to run for me, especially my much beloved WC Saga prologue. I really love this project, and am impressed by the commitment you are showing. It is very enjoyable to fly around in and fight dralthis. Anyway, since I've...

    Standoff doesn´t work

    * I tried the patch - I don't know what it did, will it work with only Episodes 1 - 3? I haven't got around to dowloading 4 yet because it won't work. Would that help though? * I have been trying to start with Standoff.exe, and it makes no difference. * What UAC thing? Where do I find it? I...

    DLL missing?

    I didn't realise that would make a difference: Are some of these files expecting a certain file pathway so to speak?

    DLL missing?

    Hey guys what about this problem: I'm running Vista, and when I first go though installing I can run the game - once. Ever after it crashes upon trying to start with this message: FileStreamer:: open CreateFile failed D:\WCSecretOps\data.tre is this related to the above problem?

    Tiger's Claw Squadrons

    I always thought that maybe other squadrons were there, because if you look closesly, the background faces are very familiar, I think that at least Iceman can be seen sitting behind you somewhere, and he's not always in your squadron is he. Also Spirit is there sitting behind you somewhere even...

    What caused the TCS Concordia's destruction

    I voted "other" - I think the most likely possibility that players of WC3 were to imagine is that Concordia was in a battle with the Kilrathi around Vespus, above the "Mistral coast" and she was destroyed and fell in the sea... Her fate was no different to that of countless Confed ships during...

    ArmadaCD on Pentium 133: MYJEMM problems

    thanks for the idea, but I have pretty much the same issues: In Dosbox 0.63, its says "EMS driver is not VCPI compliant" and so when I use MYJEMM, it says "Windows 95/98/ME required" maybe I should just try not using MYJEMM in Dos box anyother ideas? thanks

    What did you think of Neon Genesis Evangelion?

    I used to love this series, I've had two or three Neon Genesis marathons with my sister and pals. We used to have huge conversations afterwards about what the hell it was all about... I guess interest waned for me when I learnt a bit about theology, and decided the show was up the creek in...
