Things I find frustrating but not necessarily bad with this campaign so far include:
1 - Anibus sux! I keep wanting to hit my burners but they're never there.
2 - Trying to shoot down those tiny Barracudas being launched by waves of Seths is quite irritating.
3 - Not being able to use weapons like the PromS or Interceptor (at first). I guess that Alpha 1 from the original Great War campaign was just a fortunate pilot that got to use the latest toys as they came out. Of course, it could be worse... I could be trying to fight with the VLL-9.
4 - The memory-hogging of Lightspeed's Uber Nebulae, which eat up memory and sometimes force me to reboot between missions (shouldn't be happening on AMD-XP2600, 512DDR-400, ATI R9600XT).
Oh well, I'm curious to see what happens next. I just passed the operative insertion mission.
1- It's Anubis
. And it doesnt suck - it's fun!!
2- They're deliberately hard to shoot down since it's missiles, not bombs. High hit chance at mediocre damage.
3- Prometheus guns (the original, NOT the S version, which is a derivate from the original but still different) are VERY rare, because resources are lacking (untill FS2's nebula missions), so they probably still got most of them left (as its shortly after FS1), but save them for very special missions/objective, since they practically cannot be rebuilt.
4- They shouldn't cause that. I'm myself only having 512 MB of RAM, and have no problems whatsoever with the nebulae. Bob has optimized the nebula background rendering and ever since that, they are no real source of slow-down.

Also, if they're still a problem, use the 256 colour pcx versions. There's some quality loss, but it's really only noticable in screenshots or when you're looking for it, and the memory saving is huge.
This will not really help things, I'm afraid. The memory saving is ONLY there if you don't use "-pcx32" (else it'll fill EXACTLY the same size), the visual quality is significantly worse. Performance wise, there is little or no difference (tested that).
