Don't mind Edgrr, he doesn't look around the site much. The "To All Returning Players" sticky gives you everything you need (link).

You can also still purchase copies of the game online should you wish to avoid illegal downloads. Most of us don't care.


Thanks, with this help I was able to load the game from disk to windows vista.
Do you know how to form groups of weapons? I had to many and couldn't make any more unless I group some, but haven't figured that out yet?
Thanks, Aiag1917

You must be referring to units (ships). To combine (or pass to another player), you 1st select the units you want to pass or group, hold ctrl and the corresponding F key of the player you want to pass to or the F key of the group you want to combine (e.g. press F5 to select .. hold ctrl while pressing F4 -- this will move F5 units to the F4 slot)

hope this helps :)

He means weapon grouping, Juggz.

Hold shift, change to the weapon you want, click, release shift. The two weapons will now be grouped until you change weapon. You can group as many weapons as your vehicle can carry.

You can rebind these controls to be more accessible if you want - my personal choices are mouse wheel for weapon up/down, middle button for special and right click for the weapon grouping.

No, he meant unit grouping (not weapon linking). Look at his other posts asking for the same info. :P

Also, this was a clue:

Even in the context of previous posts it's ambiguous. Either way with both sets of information there's no room for misunderstanding.

I also notice some laptops require using like ALT+the F key because the F keys have been reassigned for other special functions at least on my laptop it does this rather annoying behavior. :ymparty:
