1: AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!! I should have thought about that. Carver V campaign does not start with any extra pilots like the original MC2 Carver V. Campaign setup glitch and not a MCO glitch.
2: Here is a screenshot. It actually shows a little more of the bottom of the game then my laptop screen does. Resolution on both laptop, desktop, and game match at 1280x1024 (4x3). My desktop will handle 1600x1200 (4x3) but the mouse starts to lag - as does the game on occasion. (needs a good video card). The best my laptop handles is 1400x1050. I will try it on that setting later when I play again and let you know how it does.
