have you tried to reinstall/redownload it?
remember: the computer is a stupid machine
16th Nov 04, 1:15 PM
yeahhhh i have done that three or four times in diferents pcs and happen the same thing; i dont have v1.1 update of the game, does it matters?¿
16th Nov 04, 1:17 PM
Yes, it actually does. Update to 1.1 and it might work. But then again it might not, but updating never hurt anyone. Except the campaign vaygr's fleet.

yeahhhh i can play the campaing but not the multiplayer mode neither skirmish jajajaja please HELP MEEE

Best thing to do would be to do a complete reinstall of HW2 then install the 1.1 patch. After that is done, you can extract the PDS files into your HW2 folder.
Make sure you have added the -overridebigfile line in your path (right click HW2 shortcut, go to properties and add -overridebigfile to the end of the path and click apply). Make sure you dont put it inside the quotation marks.

Well, Goodbye Mero, nice to have had you here.
PS.: "In before the ban". :bandit:

I feel I must comment on this one, seeing as how I develope software for comercial purposes. SOFTWARE PIRACY IS ILLEGAL. It is a slap in the face for all us people who spend thousands of hours to develope a game and then some chump comes along and says, those people dont need to get paid for all the time they spent makeing this game I love to play so dearly. Well I say its people like you who are taking money out of my pocket, and don't tell me its not available wherever you are because there are PLENTY of online resources to buy games and have them shipped to you.
So in closeing I hope you are :banned:forever for such a post.

I guess no one read that he cant get it where he leaves. God no one reads anymore.
20th Nov 04, 10:41 AM
Doesnt mean he needs to pirate the game....
I am sorry Mero, but you are screwed.

And using "I'm playing a mod" is no different.
PDS is a non-profit project built on the Homeworld 2 engine, which is property of Sierra and Relic Entertainment.

Well i just brought my copy from Gamestop for only $19.00 and i can't stop playing it.
Its like playing inside of a japanese anime cartoon.
My problem with Point Defence is that i can't seem to save a game when i'm playing it.
If i press save it will freeze now.
I did manage to get one save but then when i try to load it the game crashes to the desktop...anyone know why this happens?
26th Nov 04, 2:12 AM
LOL. Japanese anime cartoon. I need to add things like 10-barrel ion cannon arrays, assault mecha and such :)
Savegames - you can't use stock game saves or that of other mods, or it will crash. As for loading you can get around that issue by starting up a new map/mission, get to the 3D view then load the save normally using the F10 menu. It will work then.

The funny side to this is, Merovingio, only posted 4 posts and banned instantly. Now i think the guy holds some sort of record on relic forum, Merovingio, give yourself a pat on the back my son :bandit:
Ps, Pirating is gay, your never considers as a true gamer unless you hold an Original copy :werd:

Judging from his english I'd assume he's not from the US. Too bad companies can't enforce laws across borders...if only all corporations had armies like de beers.

I was reading reading thru the Grave bit of the forum :bandit: some guy got banned on his first post :argh:
Merovingio, you are stripped of your record of being an Utter Twat :duck:
21st Jan 05, 7:47 AM
This thread is ages old. Anyways Heliothis, if you think he can't be banned because he isn't from the US (Relic is from Canada btw), you are wrong.
21st Jan 05, 11:25 AM
LOL, Oh the horrors of getting banned :banned: ...if only everyone who pirates software can be banned from the developers forum we'd be able to end software piracy! Please...
Just for the record, if you wish to criticize my posts, read it and then re-read it and make sure you understand what it means.
