I'm hazarding a guess, but I assume there is no widescreen support from what I have read so far on another site, if you are wondering how it works on modern systems Krovven.

Long ago though, when my first forray into modding was mainly SW games, I found a way, posted on the interwebs, to 'hack' the .exe file with a hex editor to support wide screens. I did it myself once, but I don't remember how. That was way back in 2005 though, so unless GoG somehow found it, its likely someone will need to bring out the fix again.

Xwing Alliance supports widescreen and you can play the original xwing missions using it.

http://www.pcgamer.com/play-x-wing-with-upgraded-graphics-trust-us-you-should/

That's a great article to bookmark. Which raises the question:

Is XWing Alliance officially abandonware, since you can't buy it anywhere? Is it illegal to DL a CD image?

Yeah, I ran across that article a few months back. All the url's for mod files are 404's After all, the article is 4 years old...

Ghostbusters is $3 on Steam too. I probably won't play it anytime soon but is it still worth getting?

Wow, I already own the originals on floppies (including the B-wing X-wing expansion) and the "hi-res" CD version but I'll still be getting it on GoG. Can't wait to pew pew pew again!

I'm thinking about getting this game and will probably pull the trigger before the sale is over Friday. Someone did a stream of a user made scenario for this game last night and already posted it on youtube. I haven't watched any of it yet but watched some of his older videos yesterday and the game looked pretty detailed. I'm trying to convince myself I have time to play a game like this though.

What? What marketing genius offers free game to try all weekend but doesn't discount it 1 cent. Huge banner on Steam says 75% off all Total War games and underneath it "Except Rome II". Seriously???

I've been learning to play Battle Royale (Arma3 mod). Reminds me of when I first started playing dayz mod on Arma2. You drop from a plane, find weapons, then you have an ever decreasing circular area everyone has to be in or they take damage and die. Eventually people die leaving one victor who wins hunger games style. It's fun watching twitchtv streams of the game also.

Verno, from what I understand they didn't upload them, their idevice automatically saves photos to Apple's cloud - even pictures deleted on the phone could still be kept in Apple's servers and hackers get it there.

I gave Diablo 3 PC a try this week but it wasn't my cup of tea. Pretty lights and art and production but same old clickety click rinse repeat.

So I finally bought Diablo 3 today since it was on sale at Best Buy for $20. Instead of installing from the box though I tried the free play version to level 10. I got to level 4 playing solo and got a network disconnect. I figured I needed to let it install completely since I had started playing as soon as it was "playable" during download.

So I exit and let it finish downloading. Then I go back in and play and I got another network disconnect. I went back in to the dungeon again but got another disconnect shortly after restarting. Maybe it's because I was fighting a lot of enemies and clicking a lot? I have Comcast Blast! internet and Steam and Battle.net both report download speeds of 6-7mbps. I've had it for over a year since moving in this house so it's definitely not on my end. Anyway, I'm gonna return the unopened box to BB this week. I figure I will get Divinity eventually to scratch the Diablo itch plus no always online DRM...

News Comments > AI War Expansion & Linux Support This Month
2. Re: AI War Expansion & Linux Support This Month Aug 11, 2014, 16:35 Shok
 
I've played it but not recently. The graphics weren't ever the greatest but Arcen has supported the game with updates continuously (monthly if not more often) since it was first released. It's all top down 2d so it can't really compare to SoSE graphically. It's has a lot to do with blobbing hundreds of ships in battles against a very tough AI. And with so many different abilities in ships every game is different. And the emergent AI is not just a bullet point for marketing, it is very challenging. See the programmer's blog about it here.

I'll be buying this expansion just because it is Arcen's first (best?) game and I support it whenever an expansion comes out.

The only way I would even consider it, being the cheap ass I am, is if Comcast gave me a wireless modem (I own my own modem and wireless router now) and also gave me a credit each month on my bill. Even then I would kick that shit to curb if it degraded bandwidth when I was downloading/streaming.
