Yeah I later googled and found that topic too.
I have played with bman mode later with uni-mod since bman stoped moding and greyfiend incorporated bman mod to his and he is still updating it. But the ammount of crashes I had were too annoying.
So no I have my third return to this game starting with vanila mabye if I finish vanila I will start with uni-mod.
I occasionaly read ufo scene forum see how greyfiend is doing. It has been more then a year and he still is at v3.xx
