    Homeworld 2.

    Post  Gazray4699 on Fri Apr 24, 2009 7:46 am

    This post is more directed at KingK than anyone else. Why? I heard he's dealt with this pain before. After my visit to Dio, I rather cheekily copied his Homeworld 2 CD, copied his CD key and proceeded to muck about on my Vista laptop. Needless to say, it didn't work. I shrugged it off and admitted defeat, thinking my XP computer would have no problem.

    I was wrong. Horribly wrong. So wrong I want to cry.

    Once I got it home, I installed it quite happily, everything seemed fine. Double click the shortcut with the CD in the drive.... hard drive whirs, we're in business! Wait... no... God no! It does NOTHING!!! It won't start, the screen does nothing and occasionally you get the loading icon on the mouse pointer. Eventually, everything goes quiet. Any ideas/help?

    P.S. This post is slightly dramatised

    Owh mah gawd! You did what!?
    Stealing my video games! silent I totally was not aware you did this or was in any way or form a part of this copying activity or consenting towards the action being taken place!

    Anyway, now that I feel safe that I won't get sued.

    Generally for making Homeworld 2 I found the following was neccisary:
    • Run it with Windows NT Server Compatability,
    • Run it as administrator.

    Since you can't seem to get it to work at all it seems that it may be any of these problems or a combanation of them;
    1. Your computers suck bawls.
    2. Copy protection just kicked in yo.
    3. Homeworld 2 is well aware of how cool it is and it thinks it's too cool for school, and you are considered school. Shmuck.

    Yeah, I was crappy that round, trying to cover too many bases at once and mixing my units badly.
    Played a match this afternoon vs a AI by myself, got my head sorted with the Higarian units again.

    Tho, one thing I was reminded off in that game we played, is that BC's needs escort to take care of bombers.
