Windows Vista / Windows Server 2008 tweak

Windows Vista / Windows Server 2008 tweak

Description: This is a SMAC/SMAX INI file that has been conformed to work on Windows Vista / Windows Server 2008.

Assuming a fresh / clean install of SMAC and (optionally) SMAX, apply all relevant patches to the game, then drop this file (unzipped, of course) in the same directory as your game EXEs. Run the game as Administrator if you have UAC, and the game should load with no issues.

Whilst this works on some machines, there are no guarantees it will work on your PC too. However, if the game still doesn't run, you may have missed a step elsewhere.

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

* Random quote

In the years since our arrival, we have foolishly disrupted so many of Planet's ecosystems that entire species may vanish without our ever having understood, or even known them. We must halt this plunder, and halt it immediately, for our own survival as a species depends on our ability to strike a balance on this world.
~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'Mind Worm, Mind Worm'
