It would be a pity if such a wonderful game has to go under a cover of dust, because it just does not work any more.
I dont think anyone is working on the game anymore... I mentioned before that I emailed Hiro_Antagonist in like March, no answer yet. As much as I want the game to work on XP and Vista, I dont think its going to happen anytime soon. I think the only way to play the game now is through the cell version. Well for now anyways

What do you mean by cell version?
What is cell?
How can we play the game?

This is the intro to "The Honorably Discharged" forum which we are a subforum of.
In an effort to show appreciation to our customers who have bought out-of-print products, we are providing this forum. If you want to hook up with players of old games or have questions about an out-of-print product, post them here. Some old game forum archives are provided as subforums for players to search through if need be.
I think it refers to games that are no longer actively supported. The developer might not even be associated with Shrapnel anymore.

Shrapnel is very nice about not deleting forums. No matter what happens they seem to feel that if people bought it then they should at least be able to ask each other questions.
This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)

Sorry guys that you are having problems. Seems more and more Microsoft is going away from backwards compatability with their operating systems and add on products such as the net framework.

We no longer have a contract with the Developer of this game and have no legal rights to update or fix code. It sounds like some of you have tried to contact him. That would be my only suggestion.
