Hey folks!

Sorry, I haven't looked in here for a few months. I hope cornoratu is still around.

There is a very easy fix for the superspeed issue. Install the swords and more MOD. Among its features is a speed up and slow down option, so you can just adjust the speed the game runs at accordingly.

Oops, bit late!

A belated merry xmas and a happy new year to all BODsters, and an extra glass of sherry to the one, the only Ruckus Brigade :)

Great to see the old faces, erm, getting older!

I feel your pain [B)] It has taken me months of my life to get BOD working on my computer (laptop running Vista). BUT, it is now working, so there is hope! It seems like everybody's Vista problems are fairly individual and specific, which doesn't help when trying to suggest a cure. I didn't have any...

Can you believe it - it now works fine (apart from black menus, but I can navigate through those OK) in D3DWindows98 (max resolution and detail) - and so it looks beautiful! I can't believe what a long and frustrating process it's been getting this game to work in this computer, but it's been worth ...

Hi Prospero, you can hold fire if you like - unless you were going to do it anyway. After a lot of faffing about I finally took the blindingly obvious step of changing the brightness and gamma settings in the game. While this certainly didn't solve the problem properly, it made enough of a differenc...

How do I skip a level or turn off fog?

It was all going so well [B)] Using the GLraster I could run the game (finally) and with the swords&more mod I could reduce the superspeed problem. However, I've got to the Gorge of Orlok and I've got the infamous thick fog problem - I can't see anything. It's REALLY annoying! Using D3D fixes the fo...

Thanks mate, although before I saw your message I tried to edit that file myself (even though I know nothing about it), changed a few numbers and bloody hell, it worked!!!!!

So I am once again playing the best game ever made, and loving it :)

Yay!! [8D]

Ianna Keeper - thank you! I've been asking recently about the superspeed problem and couldn't find any way around it, but the mod you mention does work. However, even at the slowest setting, it's still a bit too quick. Does anyone know how to reduce it further? The lowest setting is 10%, I could do ...

Cheers SoB - I've done that in the Nvidia control panel but it doesn't help :(

Weirdly, I did have it working perfectly once! I thought I'd quit and restart to see if it was a fluke - and it was. Back to superspeed. I haven't been lucky again.

Any other cunning ideas, anyone?

After a lot of buggering about I think I know what's going on... - If I launch the game in opengl raster, the graphics look a bit dodgy but the menus work properly - If I lauch it in D3d I think it looks a bit better but the menus are black - EITHER WAY it runs at a mental speed It won't let me lauc...

Yes, I'll try that later - although it wasn't 'installed' as such, I had to copy all the files from a previous installation on another PC onto my hard drive. I'll delete the lot and try again. I forgot to add, after the mem_bad_pointer error there's another one saying it was because BOD wasn't close...

Amazingly, I almost have BOD working. I installed it on an XP PC, patched it, and copied all the files onto a DVD, then copied that onto my hard drive at home, and with the original CD in my laptop I double clicked the exe and lo and behold, here's BOD! My joy was short lived, however. It did actual...

Cheers JV, I reckon that's the only option! It's like going to hell in a handbasket [:D]
