Re: Game crashes at start up

Edit: got it to work after manually editing the resolution in the config file, it was originally set to 0x0. I get instant crashes with the latest trunk as well, made sure there are no maps in either the Warzone 2100 2.3 or Warzone 2100 Trunk folders. The errors I've got are: --- Starting log --- in...

Re: Switch to Linux?

Wine works really well actually. I've been able to run most games and programs with it after some configuration (most problems have been due to bugs in ubuntu though, it randomly removed my user from the permission to use the video card user group, resulting in that I could not run any full screen w...

Re: 2 Questions about Sound and Video

I wouldn't say I agree with the statement that sounds gotten worse since the retail version. Yeah, they were for a while (like in 2.1 when the VTOL sound would hang and keep looping through the entire game, even when there were no VTOL's nearby), but I haven't noticed any such obvious problems in mo...

Re: Am I out of luck with getting Pie Slicer to work on Vista?

lots of programs won't run with default settings in Vista. if you can't get it to run, first I recommend trying to run it as administrator, just right click on the shortcut or directly on the .exe and select "Run as administrator", I've been surprised of how many programs that crashed without giving...

Re: What do like about Warzone 2100?

The design feature and the focus on sensors and artillery is probably what I like best about it. I love post-apocalyptic enviroments, but the story really wasn't very original, so that alone wouldn't make me love the game. other things I like about it is that it was one of the earlier 3D RTS games (...

Re: engineer VTOL

there are several mods that enable the VTOL truck, the reason it isn't in the original game and standard mods is iirc because there are balance issues. And it looks horrible with the default Truck turret. :)

Re: Mini-pods that can attack VTOLs?

This does have definite merits and would increase the use of rocket pod technology (and increase the legitimacy of AIs favouring rocket pod tech). As for all towers being AA capable, again this has merits. Perhaps a new sensor - AA CB sensor - could assign artillary units to fire upon VTOLs at redu...

Re: Mini-pods that can attack VTOLs?

yes, that sounds good to me. would this mean that the mini-pod towers would be able to attack VTOL's too?
that's probably a good way for slow players to at least have a chance to survive for a while if they are late with researching VTOL's.

Re: Aivolution vs NTW vs Original?

original is the original game (not too different from the retail version released in 1999) aivolution is an alternate skirmish AI (should be better than the default AI, but I haven't compared them, and if you play allied with one you can order them to attack specific players and such stuff) and NTW ...

Re: Underpowered Anti-Air

. Perhaps a better example than the Goliath would be the Brood War "Viking" unit. . Viking? Do you mean the Valkyrie air-to-air ship? I haven't played BW in many years and might have forgotten a unit, but I really can't remember any units named Viking in the game. An equivalent of that would be int...

Re: 13 maps - have fun

Do you need the trunk version to play on these maps? I don't know how to download the trunk version. I tried, but failed. I don't think you would have to run trunk to be able to play on the maps, but I guess it's possible they look horrible in 2.2.1 since the tiles in trunk and regular wz are very ...

Re: Small VTOL Problem

This happened to me in 2.2.1 yesterday on the Manhattan map. My assault cannon VTOLs (assigned to a commander unit) kept firing one shot at the target, then circling the building and landing next to it. then they got hit by enemy ground fire and retreated (as I had set them to retreat at medium dama...

Re: Warzone 2100+ mode?

That might be interesting, though there is a major difference between Warzone 2100 and RPG's like Diablo that I think is very important in making the game fun to play again from start with your already strong character - and that is that you would never be able to get all upgrades in the tech tree o...
