You can only change the number of players and choose a custom island if you select File | New Friendly Game. If you choose File | New Challenge Game (or click on one of the tree icons to play a challenge game) you have to play with 5 opposition players and play on one of the first 400 islands - othe...

You can make a squad throw a few genades if you give them an order to fire but select a target position that's quite close to them. I think you're not seeing many grenades thrown in the game as I've made it so that soldiers are very nervous about getting close to the enemy so there aren't many oppor...

I use Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 to write all the games in, but I'm a real luddite and I only actually use C and not C++. I also don't use any MFC or DirectX. For the Pocket PC games you can get Embedded C++ 3.0 for free from Microsoft's website and I can basically use all the same source code as in t...

Turrets don't count for much as they are quite easy to kill and non-fighter ships count even less. Mostly it's based on how much you kill relative to your ship's cost (so it's easier to get a good medal if you fly a worse ship). You also get credit for a successful mission and for a good accuracy ra...

I'm a bit confused by this conversation! I just tried playing a game and won it and then another where I let a computer player win. Both times I got a dialog box telling me who had won and when I clicked OK I was returned to the "high score table" of trees.

This conversation has popped up from time to time on my message boards over the years but my answer is always going to be that I'm not going to drop the prices. Budget games on the shelves probably used to sell for loads more when they were brand new and now they're selling off the old stock on the ...

The Pocket PC maps are exactly the same as the Windows version's maps (as long as you have the most recent versions of each program) The demo maps for both the Pocket PC and Windows are the first three maps which are all "very small". The only thing that you can't do on the Pocket PC is play with us...

Note that in version 3 there are some inconsistencies of use but most of the time it will work. Fusion The inconsistencies were probably due to using those extra dialog boxes on the side of the main window before. If one of them had the "focus" then any key presses got sent to them instead of the m...

I got wiped out by a Plectron once too so I have toned them down a little. It all depends on which beta you are playing with, but currently the Plectron warhead is 13Mt and the Yatari is 10Mt.

I'm not sure really, I've never used Visual Basic. My guess is that Visual Basic Studio is just Visual Basic with some extra bits chucked in.
