    A REALLY stupid question this: I know how to get rid of divx, but how (And where from) do you replace with the "one that comes with windows?" - What file, and where from please?

    I have a TI4600 as well. I guess it's a matter of personal preference. I think that Freelancer looks great, and it really conveys a sense of enormous size and scope. However, the textures and overall graphical effects are on par with the greatest of a year or 2 ago. Truthfully, the textures remind me a lot of the 3 year old Descent 3. This is not an insult whatsoever! 3 years later, I can't think of 10 other PC titles that compare to Descent 3 in graphics quality. I guess that I was just hoping to be bowled over by Freelancer when I finally got to see it in action. I was only merely pleased.
    I am glad to hear of the cockpits. I used to love WCIII's cockpit views (even though I ususally turn them off). They really made you feel like you were flying actual ships with thier own distinct differences.

    The place I downloaded it from didn't mention that limit... I found that pretty annoying, spending over 10 hours to download this on my dial up connection to either play for two hours then restart or play for a longer time, trying to NOT make money :). The one system and one plot mission limits should be enough.

    Other than that, the demo is great, although the dozens of one-second-long loading screens I get when I do just about anything while planetside is kinda annoying... I'd rather have one or two loading screens which would take 30 seconds each to load, but would only show up once.

    Oh, BTW, I haven't found 5 ships in there yet either...

    Thats what I've been doing, either running around shooting things just for the hell of it, or doing missions, getting paid, and after spending money on essentials (nanobots, shield batteries), spending the rest on any commodity, then dumping it in space.

    I've found so far, 7 ships, including the free one. However, two require Level 2 access, and two require Level 4, leaving you with only 3 flyable ones.

    Yeah, that's what I meant... I think I've found about 5 ships, but some require a higher level, so they don't really count.

    What jump gates have you guys found? Even though you can't use them in the demo, I've found Jump Gate to California and a jump gate to Colorado. Are there any more in the demo? Tomorrow is the day that we will reap the fruits of our labor!!
