Was the other thread insufficient for some reason?

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

First post I saw, wasn't expecting two threads so wasn't looking for another one. Nothing exciting.

Re: Wincomander 3 for free
...the cost of installing a program and creating an account that you then never have to use except for those specific games?  I have no desire to ever buy anything through Origin (short of Mass Effect 3 possibly), but if they're going to be throwing stuff out there for free, I'll happily take advantage of it.

Re: Wincomander 3 for free
they have the "on the house" offer. so for a specific time maybe longer or shorter you may get a specific game for free. They have already given away Battlefield 1942 last month or dead space around three or four months ago.

Err... they've been throwing free stuff out there for quite some time. Battlefield 3, Plants vs. Zombies, Dead Space and others were all being given away at some point.

Yes I got this and ended up highly disappointed. It allows you to configure/calibrate your joystick/gamepad at the beginning, yet during game play, seems not to recognise that it is there?  :blah:

I had the same problem but if you press alt+o while in a mission it will take you to the ingame options where you can select the joystick.

Yes, I'm fully aware of that, seeing as how I installed Origin several months ago to get all of them. :p

Re: Wincomander 3 for free
It's possible that you have problems with the game because it's the original one runnig in DOSBox. But you can find a pdf of the manual in the game data folder. Yeah there has been a time with mgame manulas i can roughly remember it (X-Wing vs Tiefighter)
