SP is fine... it's when you try to do MP when you run into problems... but we've often overcome

im getting a regular crash with the latest build. perhaps its time to clear my pilot and start anew, that usually fixes crashes. but then il loose progress in my descent 1 game. grrr!

im putting out 30 replacement robot textures right now, keep an eye out for those :D
actually you dont have to look far

Make another pilot, keep your other as single player.

grr looks like im gonna need to disassemble my computer in order to get my 8800 out of it. im gonna have a better machine to use it on very shortly. anyway i dont have an os for it yet, i dont expect to get my vista cd for another week. so il probibly just do a temp install of 2000. i should still be able to play later on though.

im running a pirate version for now, untill my copy comes in the mail. i figure a dry run wouldnt hurt to work the kinks out of the machine. . the new machine is running nicely though im a little bit disapointed with the cfm on this thing. im getting 39000 points in 3dmark 2001, 19000 points over my last score. and i havent even got to tweaking yet.
