More Info

2/2/01

Today we've got some new 3D Renders brought to you by Fallout eXtreme!

Next I've got a little info for those of you who are having some firewall problems (Compliments of Karl Burdack).

    "Hi Folks, For those technical minded people that are trying to get tactics working through a firewall, here is a link to the Microsoft site, describing the solution for DirectPlay 7.0, which is used by Fallout Tactics as well.

    It includes information on what ports to forward etc. I would be intereseted to see what kind of results people get... I have no information as yet on what ports GamesSpy Arcade uses.

  • support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q240/4/29.ASP

    - Karl Burdack"

Also the Micro Forte guys made a script for Linux to solve firewall problems. It has been updated by a forum member... Here are the links to the board: Hope that helps you guys out a little bit!

Okay I've got some cool stuff for you today, but first some news about the contest...

The Falcon Contest is now over! Good luck and thank you to all who participated. The winner will be posted on the Winners Page sometime on February 7th.

Next, for all of you who've wanted to know a little more about me, Krazikatt, well here's your chance. KellyX at Fallout eXtreme has done an interview with me and asked some very interesting questions. Check it out, you might get a kick out of it. :)

Alright, now for some goodies... Yuri from Freelancer has posted a new poster that he has created. (please note that the "bonus cd's" on this new poster were also created by Yuri, they are not infact the real CD's).

Okay, now that you're done looking at all that fun stuff, jump on over to the Links Page for a new preview from Happypuppy.com.

Also, I know that some of you have been having "black screen" problems with the demos... well, here's a "Black frozen screen solution" from Karl Burdack (Lead Programmer):

    Those people that are getting a black frozen screen when launching the game from gamespy. Try launching the game normally by running it from the start menu, do you still get the black screen?

    If you still get the black screen, try creating a new shortcut to the executable and add the command line option: -nosound

    Try the following:

    • Control Panel
    • Sound and multimedia
    • Audio tab
    • Advanced button in the Sound Playback section
    • Performance tab
    • Turn hardware acceleration up to full"

Okay, I hope that helped you all! Have fun with the other goodies!

Pre Order Update!

Now I know there are still a few of you out there who haven't pre-ordered the game yet, so for those of you who are still waiting (for what I don't know!) I just wanted to let you know that the pre-order goodies are halfway gone! If you are interested in getting the Bonus CD and the Camouflage bag you'd better hurry!

Also for those of you who wanted a better look at the camouflage bag, Fallout eXtreme has a pretty good size picture of what it will look like! (do keep in mind that this is a mock-up... it will have a patch where we've pasted the logo).

For more information on the Bonus Mission CD Click Here.
