#1287 X-Com Collector's Edition... Apocalypse help?

Posted by Newbreed on 11 November 2002 - 02:47 PM in Support

Go into your sys.config file and you should see a line saying Buffers= 40.
Just change it to 20, save and restart your computer.



#1556 Why must you mock me, God?

After a 6 month lull, I decided to try the SVGA patch again. AND IT WORKS. WOOHOO. In conclusion, try reinstalling X-com a few times, it's bound to work sooner or later. Now blow up the Cult Temple again and again. :D

Well this is the latest in a long series of crushed hopes on my part.

First there was the issue with the buffers then the svga error. But, I struggled through all this determined I would play this great game again.

Finally I find the patch on this site and install it with trembling hands.

I start the game and........... IT WORKS!  
I send a few minutes re-organising my men and equipping my hover-bikes.
Suddenly an alert, with a spring in my step, I go merrily on my way to kick some alien ass when THE POXY GAME CRASHES TO THE DESKTOP.

It crashes everytime I start a battle, right before the agent teams screen comes up.

Did I install the patch wrong or can anyone help me?

#1557 Skipping the Startup Cutscene

Posted by Newbreed on 08 April 2003 - 04:36 PM in Support

Can anyone explain in minute detail how to do this?
I've seen something about "-skip in the command line" but that's just gibberish to me.
