That's great; thanks for putting WC2 through some testing! What frame rate did you settle on?Thanks very much. It seemed to work very well. I played through all of WC1, sm1, sm2 and most of WC2. It ran very smooth and I dont think it crashed at all. I'm just wandering at what fps setting is people running at? I found that the default fps setting was a little too fast and had to turn it down using ctrl+n
Since I'm manually patching each game, and there are a lot of different issues to keep track of, there will inevitably be small differences in behavior for each one. The question is how to debug it so I can figure out what's going on in your case; I don't have a good solution to that yet.
Btw something i noticed on wing commander 2 if your using the thrustmaster target gui for mapping keys with a thrustmaster joystick, make sure to use the "hold function" for keys like fire missiles, because I found sometime the missiles would not fire if you use the "pulse" action, but the hold action would work everytime. Likewise I had to do the same for hat switch on my joystick to bind the front cockpit(f1) and rear(f4) views.
SO basically if your using the thrustmaster target gui mapping software and certain keys arent working properly switch it from "pulse" to "hold" it tends to work better
Whoa, hey, no need to apologize; the feedback you're giving is exactly what I want to see. I need to know what's not working in order to fix it! My message was just saying that I don't know what could be going wrong in your case. I need some more details. In particular, does the game keep running even though the screen is black? Is there music? Does the game just stop entirely? With enough additional info, I may be able to come up with some logging that would help narrow down the problem.
