Right I'm grabbing a copy of WoW to run on my 256mb, fast, soundless PC with a large HD until my other PC turns up at the end of the month.

Questions:

It is more fun than beardy right?

You don't have to go too far to find something fun to do, do you?

Does the key just work for one computer or is it just the key can only be online from one computer at a time?

How important is sound to the game? Are some sounds represented in text too (ie *you hear a rustle*)?

Am I insane?

Who killed Kennedy?

Why did the IGN review almost put me off getting this, that's not right is it?

I did manage to get it working a few months back. Damned if I can figure out how to again..........

Bit of a shame. It's a good mod, and very difficult.

It was still great.

*Click tank* *click attack* *click target* *repeat*

It was also horribly hard.

Got to the last Atreides mission - 2 UBER nuke missiles against me, + 3 enemies from 3 different directions + all the usual hardness.

:(

Actually I think you're right.

I think I was remembering telling units to follow one another as 'selecting a group' which was wrong.

Yeah, the original didn't have multiple selection. 'Twas a pain in the ass to send a large force. The keys were a pain too.

Eh?

Dune 2 allowed you to select multiple units.

I don't remember any buttons either. Everything was done with the mouse.


I had it on the RISC PC so mabye it had been tweaked by then.

Agreed, watching the Warcraft 2 intro for the first time was amazing. Completed that game right through many times.
