Re: Just bought the game -- brief plea for help

Re: the different missions.

The scoring *is* scaled, but it's a litle more complex than you were thinking.

As mentioned above, each mission type has different goals. Read the mission briefing,...

Re: Some last questions? Thanks much

The programmer has been unavoidably otherwise engaged for the last several months, so Weird Worlds support has been fairly much on the back burner. Don't be surprised if nothing much happens for a...

Re: Before I claim bug...

You'll notice that this fixes the problem with SAIS where you couldn't use Glory as a way-point during your travels. Now you can pop back (to trade, or simply to avoid an arm of the Purple Void) any...

Re: Hyperdrive too easy!

So remove them! Make your own mod that does not contain either item. At least, not for the player.

e.g. Make a new directory called anything you like (say, "improved"), and give it a subdirectory...

Re: WW: Imperial Star Destroyer mod 2.0

The scrolling-and-closing the cargo bay issue is a known 'feature' of the game, but if you press 'C' to toggle the cargo bay back on you can work around it.

Re: The Patch!

IIRC the patch won't enable you to get you higher scores than before, but it will (correctly) make it harder to get them on the easier settings.

Re: Why can\'t my computer handle WW?

PvK: Weird. I have a GF4Ti4200 and have no trouble with D3D and DX9.0c. I use the 56.64 drivers under Win98 (the later drivers are directed at their newer hardware, and only cause problems for the...

Re: Please add slots to the High Score Table

Firstly, my apologies. I was confusing mission type with sector size.

Secondly, the modd thing just shouldn't happen. The game keeps completely separate high score files for each mod (the...

Re: Please add slots to the High Score Table

PvK: Erm, the game *does* break up the scores according to mission type, and you can only see the scores for the current mod.

Re: Please add slots to the High Score Table

I can't see any use in this unless they also stored a mission log. It would be kinda fun to click on a lousy score and bring up a window describing how at your first port of call on a ten year...

Re: Relative Merits of Ship/Mission Types

The large map is by far the most generous time-wise, because you invariably have plenty of time to find the good stardrives (and eventually the hyperdrive) which inevitably *will* be out there...

Re: problems with beam sweeping?

In that case, just have someone constantly spray ahead of the target area with a Micrometeorite Gun. That's usually pretty effective, and is basically a fire-and-forget solution if you are standing...

Re: Why can\'t I fold?

Handy hint for Zorg Fighter folding... before you fold in combat, turn to face the direction you want to be facing after you fold. Gets your weapon on target faster...

Re: problems with beam sweeping?

Bring up the combat context menu (NOT on a ship). Select "fire". Pause the game. Move the mouse. Select "fire" again.

Re: Why can\'t my computer handle WW?

If upgrading your video drivers doesn't help, you could try downgrading them. Unfortunately the standard advice to ensure you have the latest drivers simply doesn't always hold true with nVidia, as...

Re: mod idea: hidden stars

Oh, but you'll still have the wormhole effect, which might be a show-stopper unless you want to explain it with some new fiction. (Maybe some ultra high-tech race once lived on those stars, and left...

Re: mod idea: hidden stars

Removing the blhole FLAG from the .ini file in the stars directory only makes the game crash, so I'd say your best option at present is to have an anti-graviton shunt installed by default to negate...

Re: bug alert: disappearing cargo bay

We covered it at the ISF forums, but for anyone else who encounters this just remember that you can toggle the cargo hold window with the 'C' key.

Re: Wishing... I don\'t get it.

You can wish for just about any item in the game, unless it is a unique item which already exists somewhere in the sector.

If you know for certain that you spelled it correctly and you still...

Generally the distraction role is the best use for them, yes.

You can effectively eliminate the incoming fighters from any number of Garthan Carriers simply by leading them all on a merry chase,...
