tommytoxen @ Lost Alpha Developer's Cut v1.4002 Big Patch

What game are you playing?!?!

-Wolf is under one of the bunkers

-Nimble is trapped in a room under the bridge. You get the mission for him after doing a few others for Sid etc first

-That's deliberate, something about gravitational field/anamoly

-Yeah pathfinding is a bit borky sometimes, agreed there

-You're doing the cordon mission wrong. See here: Youtube.com

For AMD you want to be around 65 MAXIMUM (55c preferable) and below. Give your computer a good de-dusting and clean, apply new thermal paste if needed.

Lost Alpha wasn't released 10 years ago, it was released 3 years ago and again a month ago and is much more resource intensive :P

When CPU is overheating it will down-step automatically. Thus freezing and stuttering, and when it gets dangerously hot it'll just shut down your computer.

Lost Alpha is cpu-intensive because of how huge it is, especially with the AI, new features etc all coded in on a 10 year old engine that is borky and cpu-intensive to begin with (hence why original version was butchered half to Hell).

It's obviously, at its peak, running hotter than C:S.

All you have to do is clean out your heatsink/fan/apply new thermal paste/maybe lower your vcore voltage if you're overvolting. Not even sure how you're overheating an antiquated CPU like that it's ancient unless you're OCing on a stock cooler or something.

Sneaking is broken in 1.4002?

Everytime I go up to the Agroprom research institute, I'm almost immediately spotted by military guys who are MILES away? It's pitch black - past midnight, making NO noise.

How are they magically spotting me as soon as I climb up the ladders from the catacombs?!

Computers rebooting by themselves and freezing/locking happen usually because of one of three things
CPU/GPU overheating
Under/overvolting
Faulty PSU

Check your BIOS settings make sure you're not undervolting your cpu and use something like hwd monitor to check temperatures while playing.

Though I must say your cpu is very weak and your gpu only has 2gb of vram. Try to lower all the sliders to the left and turn off ALL the eye candy options then play a while, and enable them one by one until you hit the freeze, then you know you've reached your peak.

I thought we could sneak and use stealth now?

a loner had an artifact i wanted so i followed him right to the edge of camp then knifed him. no witnesses, no one saw me.

went back into camp to sell it.. all the other loners were shooting at me? why are they shooting at me when i snuck and used stealth and there were no witnesses to the murder?

tommytoxen @ One Late Night

I've been using computers since 1992 I'm not stupid :P

Linux Debian, installed Linux version via Desura.

I have a high end gaming machine, it isn't in the range of the recommended system requirements, it surpasses and is miles and eons above the recommended system requirements..

Anyway, it just won't launch. Tried uninstalling & reinstalling, there aren't even any error messages, just doesn't do anything. Weird.

tommytoxen @ UFO: Alien Invasion

Never get any replies there.. lol

But I think I've sorted it, played a couple of missions now and it hasn't crashed.. yet. UFO doesn't like high resolutions it seems, I've managed to get it up to 1280x768 without it crashing now. It gets laggy at times in some missions which it shouldn't really, I've got a Radeon 7970. I can play Metro Crysis 2, well what ever you want to name on ultra full whack without even a hint of a stutter yet UFO lags.. strange stuff.

Definitely something to do with it not liking the resolution.

But other than that I've really been enjoying this game, recommend it to anyone. Cept Ubuntu users with good graphics cards who want a decent resolution ofc :P

Just played it, 10/10 thanks thoroughly enjoyed that. Forgot how difficult it was though, got my butt kicked.

Great game, well done!

Wish there was a proper WWII scenario though, starting in 1939 with Russia & America & Japan joining later like in real life

I installed this a couple of months ago but couldn't get any sound and it was sooo laggy. I was on UE 3.4 at the time though.

On the latest Linux Mint now so may give it another go.
