for tips to 2260 mission6 look above. I always thought this mission to be to easy and as far as I know most people also got past it without major problems. Since there is no Reunion2
, I guess you again to mission6 here. The game crashing in this mission is new to me.
A crash in Mission8 (the Brakiri Station) occurred several times, the problem is I have no idea why.
DarkChildren (not Children of the Darkness
) on the other hand is no complete campaign and not exactly balanced. I created it to test an idea and the slowmotion feature.

Yeah, I always fix my campaigns for the next release, the problem is the missions are not broken.
