of course it is, its nearly matched by your great idea of using an acronym no one understands in your title

Hes having graphical corruptions... could be caused by several things: Overclocking; bad drivers; overheating; memory problems...

What game is SOTS?
What kind of graphics card do you have?
What driver version, and DirectX version?

Re: ahhhh sword of the stars help
Looks like a driver issue.

I'd say it's from a lack of pixel shader support, but if it's also happening to Diablo 2 it's probably general driver issues.

Post on the Kerberos boards, one of the devs might be able to help:

Re: ahhhh sword of the stars help
There's the three main ship sections, weapons, and then optionals per section (armor type, cloak/shield variants). The end result of the system is actually about as much customization as in a game like MOO2.

If you're going to get the game, be sure to also order the expansion Born of Blood as it adds a lot of good techs, trading/piracy, and a new race.

Re: ahhhh sword of the stars help
Well for me at least, SotS is MOO3. (I'm ignoring the atrocity, which to add insult to injury came out on my 18th birthday)

The strategic map of SotS is more like MOO1, but the combat is pretty much MOO2 in real time.

Re: ahhhh sword of the stars help
That game looks really promising, but one thing that stops it cold is that technology can't be shared, stolen or salvaged... that's HUGE!

MOO2 will apparently always be the end-all 4X galaxy game... just for an example, when using a custom race who happened to be uncreative, I'd make 'capture fleets' with ships having as many tractor beams as possible then a number of support ships with troops to steal all the technology I could from other races' ships.  I've not seen a (space-based) 4X allow that kind of strategy since.

By golly gee whillaker george, I'm going home and firing up MOO2 in DosBox.
