Ah, it works.
A whole bunch of crashes, and a media error in the new VP's (helios_tech.pof is missing)
The OGL odd screen colour bug is still there on all systems, but on the Geforce 2 Windows ME machine it only happens with the pause screens and such, and no longer on some of the others. Also, the colour is still system-dependent.
A lot of odd crashes, generally without error, and the joystick regognisition is a bit off (selecting the joystick won't work on my dads system, you need to select the paddles instead of the joystick to make all the joystick buttons work. Paddles are USB (dunno brand/model, will look up) joystick is Saitek X-52 (HOTAS) (USB as well) WinXP Pro.
Also, after clicking on the OK button on the rror message about the missing pof, in game you've got two mouse pointers, one from windows and one from the game. The Game one works, the windows one is just disctracting. When using 1280*1024, they're not synchronous.
Errorles CTD's are semi-common, once every 3 missions. They're the variant of 'An error occured and we need to close the app, do you want Microsoft to know?' Not sure if they're triggerd by anything
Might be interesting to know: My brothers system got the 'white ship bug' while playing single player (ME, GF2, 384MB RAM, P4, last set of drivers to support the GF2 Ultra), but no-one got it during multiplayer. Also, no odd textures have been spotted (such as vasudan tex's on a Deimos.)
