    Heck im a fan. Looking forward to 2007. (Orbiter)

    This is also supposed to be a Diary/Strategy topic

    Do you ever play anymore, Grim? 'Cause I'm so bored, I might consider reinstalling Spring.

    If you blow a hole deep enough on a map that has no water, the ground turns blue and you can use water units there. I think its a glitch, but it's fun to exploit.

    I don't know, thats realistic I suppose.

    PRFRBL- REALISTIC?!? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    It would be realistic if a steady flow of magma would start flowing from the hole, but come on! If you go to the moon and make a deep enough hole, will the moon turn blue?

    In case you don't know what happened:
    Basically, the player's commander was stuck between the adv. fusions due to a possible bug. And then a LRPC shot from enemy bounced off the repulsion shield of one of the allies of his and hit his commander directly and triggered a huge chain explosion.
    It's best to download the replay like I did, but you have find the version, which is not the latest one, that matches the replay.

    In any area where there exists a fairly shallow water table, if you dig a hole, it will fill with water.


    If you could manage to blow a 35 foot deep hole covering 5 acres of land, you could quite reasonably use a boat on the newly created pond.

    The chat in the final moments is amazing: "WHO CALLED IT?" "That wasn't a nuke." "Yes it was!" "Nope."

    Hahaha... If only it were that simple. Earth has groundwater, which is what will fill a hole if you dig one deep enough. All wells are, actually, are really deep holes used to tap groundwater. On Mars or the Moon that probably wouldn't work as, if I remember correctly, Lunar and Martian water deposits are frozen.

    It is rather realistic in a strategy game, though. Lava would only really start coming up if you had an insanely (for single TA match) deep hole.

    I got TA Spring, I tweaked some of the setting, and all I get is a freaking sign that tells me I can't play because of really high hardware requirements.

    C'mon! 1GB of RAM and 32MB Graphics card with a 1.6 GH Processor should suffice, right?

    That's strange. My laptop has same specs, only with less RAM than yours, but I am still able to run it with no problem.
    And I have never heard of Spring giving hardware requirements warnings.

    32 mb graphic card?
    That might be the source of your porblem.

    I have a 32 bit Intel Brookdale G and it runs fine with 4 gigs of ram.
    (Its a miracle in the gaming world its dated 2001 but CAN run games like DF:BHD, Empire Earth, MOHAA, Domination : Massive Assault (Dream Catcher) and Etc. (I dont mean to brag)

    The error says "Needed extension GL_ARB_texture_env_combine not found"

    Although I should look at the TA Spring FAQ, not here >.>;;

    Lots. It means an OpenGL extension that was needed was not found on your graphics card. Obviously, it might be bad drivers, too.

    That is like saying 'what exactly has hardware shader support to do with system requirements?'

    Either that or the extension wasn't found on your computer (drivers) and you need to update your OpenGL stuff.

    Which would, again, not be a hardware problem.

    ... Whadya mean "again"? Did you read what Amarth posted?

    Judging from the specs of most people that use this forum, he'd have a better chance at solving his problem by replacing his card than getting new drivers, unless he magically posts with a response along the lines of "I fixed it kthx".

    I once had a similar D3D error which led to me getting my very first ever GPUGFX(TM). That solved the problem then, and it should solve his now.

    Edit: Bah, I misread a few names while writing this. Ignore any inconsistencies.

    I'm surprised that people still have those. Everyone should've switched to DVD drives already.

    It'll complain about your computer not being genuine if you try to use the MS Download Center.

    ... And Bien45, Grim's right. DUDE. Get yourself a DVD drive or two.

    That's the problem, this computer is running on a pirated version (don't blame me, computer techie installed it) while the other computer does not have internet but is running on an original XP.

    That makes me remember the time... 2 years ago, some technicians were supposed to install a new GFX and Windows XP. What did they do? They installed the GFX, good, but they snapped a pirated version of Windows XP!
    Then my father was forced to buy a genuine Windows and we reinstalled the operative system.

    And, man, we're being offtopic.

    I think this counts as talking about warez. We should STFU now.

    Now then, the topic... Orbiter looks awesome on detail level 9.
