    I used the download from CFC. It's a DirectX problem I believe from reading some discussion on the 1.74 patch in the downloads section of CFC. This computer came with a somewhat minimal installation, I am discovering :crazyeye: Nothing a few downloads won't fix. IT will just take a little while.

    I now actually have access from home. <gasp> Quality is another matter... :rolleyes:

    My guess is that you simply need to upgrade the directx install.. 1.74 required a higher version of dx9c I think than the one directly from the disc

    SGOTM 10 signup is posted. It looks like a ripper.

    Seems I have a about 2 weeks to get a copy of BTS installed.

    I've found a copy. IT's just on the other side of the Atlantic and the Sahara at the moment. A minor detail... :crazyeye: Working on it...

    Oh - actually having an easily accessable and reliable internet connection again has brought me back to a few forums I haven't read in a long time. I went and looked at the HOF forums and tables again. I notice two things:

    1. PK has been hitting the top of the lists in the Emperor and Immortal space games :goodjob:

    and, this is astonishing...

    2. I still have a number 1 position on the time victory at emperor after more than a year of not submitting a HOF game. Obviously time victories are not very interesting records to aim for... :lol:

    2 days at work and I haven't broken anything, said anything stupid or offended anybody.

    As far as I can tell, by the law of sit-coms, everything has been wildly successful so far!!!

    I've signed up for Xteam again for SGOTM10 even though I probably won't be able to play it. Wife is having a tough time finding a post-doc in the area so money will be a bit tight to buy a new computer.
    I'll do my best to make useful posts throughout, but without even being able to load up the saves, I'm not sure what it will be worth.

    Mad Prof: I just played those games on Emp/Imm to prove that you don't need to play Inca to get on the HoF, they're about 400 years later than what can be done with a good Inca player though >.>
    I'm looking forward to seeing what Shannon can do.

    JT hasn't been on CFC for 6 months.

    Have you tried emailing the other MIAs?

    Sent everyone a PM. Can send another to those who haven't yet reported one way or the other. Off to do so. :)

    EDIT - Done.

    Heard back from rrau. She is still struggling to get :bts: to run on her computer. Hopefully, she can get this worked out in the next couple of days?

    I'm headed out to the back yard to do a Haka for luck... :)

    Grover22 is on vacation for a couple more days. I hope he'll sign up when he gets back. Maybe Fred is on vacation too. He hasn't been online for a couple weeks.

    How late can a player show up and still be added to the team?

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I've been away on vacation for the past two weeks, and I just got home. I didn't have the internet access I expected to have while I was away, either. :(

    I think I should pass on the next team game--you guys are all much better than I am. If you'd like to have me around as another dedicated lurker, I could commit to that.

    Please do!

    All you have to do is follow my lead, right before I think I'm about to screw it all up, I simply save, post and ask. :D

    :thanx: for the PM.
