    Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

  • Has anyone bought this?  I assume anyone reading this has a CD-ROM copy from 1998.  I want to know if it is actually something different that runs smoother on windows7 or can change the resolution or avoids those colour problems?.

  • i bought this release too. the game comes already patched up to version v5.0, but this is the only difference from previous versions.
    i'm using it on WinXP so i can't tell anything about how it works on Win7, but from what i read, if you make the following change in the Alpha Centauri.ini file,  you will force Alpha Centauri to run at your desktop resolution
    Code: [Select]
    DirectDraw=0
    by "colour problems" you mean when you alt-tab out of the game?

    The entire character of a base and its inhabitants can be absorbed in a quick trip to the Rec Commons. The sweaty arenas of Fort Legion, the glittering gambling halls of Morgan Bank, the sunny lovers' trysts in Gaia's High Garden, or the somber reading rooms of U.N. Headquarters. Even the feeding bay at the Hive gives stark insight into the sleeping demons of Yang's communal utopia.
    ~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'A Social History of Planet'
