Re: Idea for people who have trouble testing their ship/miss

What about a single mission test? Where you pick a mission, you have infinite credits, and all ships are available for purchase? However, no records would be saved. This would greatly help people who want to test expensive but uncertain ships, and for making sure your mission is beatable. the idea ...

let's suppose you wouldn't be going to do this to cheat... you would then change the current ships with better ones, that means, more expensive ones... but each mission gives the AI a certain number of credits to buy its ships so, being all of the ships more expensive, you would have to manually cha...

just noticed the Insert Symbol feature and liked it... yet I have to recommend some changes: - :!: you should catch the mouse_up event rather than the mouse_down one, since it's very easy to click on the wrong symbol; - often, more symbols need to be inserted at once: I'd make it so that when you cl...

good job, Sean! :D I really like the mini-map, and the ability to drag the screen! a possible bug: - the mini-map is not shown when the editor is full-screen; a few suggestions: - when right-clicking on a file tab, a menu should appear allowing the user to perform common operations on the file: clos...

Just store it under HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of, as I assume it is, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Yet this will cause other troubles: if the game is being used on the same machine by different user accounts, any time you'll start it with a different account it will tell that the RollOfHonour.dat has been da...

Re: problems with user account & Critical Mass

Hi Jan, I presume the game needs administrative privileges to run properly. This is something people have already talked about here, I assume that Sean hasn't fixed it yet: http://www.windowsgames.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2634 Yet, if you set your son as an administrator, he will be probably ask...

sid6.7, I've just sent you an email with the file.

do the amount of medals you've earned really affect the amount of credits you have? Seems the effect is miniscule at best... Yes! Here are the values for each medal type: MoH = 1 credit MoCB = 2 credits MoOC = 4 credits GC = 8 credits There's only another thing that affects the number of credits, a...

Some way to see the map before you download it (shift it to the correct directory and unzip it) or at the very least a ranking system could prove very popular. You can already do this from Sean's page, just click on the http://www.windowsgames.co.uk/images/conquest.gif image. :wink: OMG i never not...
