Battlecruiser Millennium held hostage…countdown

Hey Pat

since you are the initiator of the ‘Battlecruiser held hostage’
threads, going back several years, I was wondering if you were
planning another one in June. Lemme know and I’ll give you a date that
I definitely plan on missing, so that we can get the thread going <g>

Funny thing…

I was playing JumpGate the other night and saw a fellow BZ’r in the game.
The next thing you know another BZ player started this thread on the
BattleZone 2 forum….


None of us knew the others were playing it.  More talk about JumpGate on the
BZ forum than the space sim newsgroup.

Pick your date when BCM will be released

Lets see who can pick the closest date when BCM actually ships a CD
for EB to sell.


1/    The cd must be the gold version of BCM, not the patch to stop it
crashing, or the patch to fix up the patch to stop it crashing.

2/    In the event of a tie, the first person to post  the correct
date wins.

3/   Derek Smart and anybody who has anything to do with BCM  *ARE*
able to post (They have no idea when it is going to ship either,)

4/    First prize is yet to be decided

5/    Only one pick per person (No sock puppets plase)

6/   Any other rules that are made up go here.

7/   The judges decision is final, no correspondence will be entered
in unless such correspondence contains a piece of mars metal or a copy
of *ALL*  the planets that NASA decretely mapped.

So my prediction for when BCM will ship is 11/11/2001

BCM PC Zone demo

This month’s PC Zone is carrying the BCM demo. I couldn’t help smiling
when I noticed their write-up – "There are a couple of compatibility
issues with this demo, and you may find it doesn’t install properly…"

9/16/01  patch to fix the D3D crash.  All video cards  must disable bilinear

9/29/01  patch to fix sound.  Sound now works!

10/21/01 patch to fix mouse lag.  All mice should now work within the game.

10/31/01 patch to fix resolution problems.  Hardware acceleration now
supports resolutions up to 800×600.  There are still artifacts like flashing
Menu and flashing Space, but they should have a fix, soon.

11/24/01  patch to fix the copy protection bug.  The game should load AT
LEAST 50% of the time, WITHOUT freezing.

12/4/01  patch to fix the AI.  They AI should now respond to being attacked.

the game.  3DNOW technology now supported!  For Intel users, a P4 1.4 with a
GeForce (GeForce 2 series is not supported by BCM yet) should run the game
640×480 at FPS of 10-15.  By disabling sound, you should see FPS of 12-18.
AMD users should not use a 3D accelerator at this time.

01/04/02 announce a new version of BCM.  Battlecruiser Millennium Ultra
Extreme!  Basically, BCM re-released with all the patches installed.

Edge of Chaos-can't seem to join a game

I’ve downloaded the Edge of Chaos internet multiplayer beta, registered, and
used the connection phone number given. But when I click on a server to join
I just get a looping sound, and it doesn’t join, anybody managed to get in
to play?

Is there any way to get into a ship without joining an internet game?

Thanks in advance.

Tachyon Fringe Question

Before you get arrested for the hospital mission, is it a good idea to max
out your money ie: sell one of your ships? Do your credits carry over into
the fringe?

Re: Games World…

Just what the web needs – another fricking page of links. At this rate there’ll be nothing but links and no actual
content by the year 2003.
