I didn't get to finish the campaign code but quite a few of the other changes made it in. The is just a beta, but it looks to be pretty stable. If you try it and have any problems. Let me know.

What exactly do you have planned for the campaign? I think a static campaign or user campains would be a great addition to the current random maps.

Hey Tully, I can't run the beta in 32 bit color mode. My system specs are a Toshiba Satellite 5505 S703 2 gig p4 mobile chip 512 ddr ram Geforce 4 Go 460 graphics card, Yamaha soundcard. Win XP Pro - Service pack 1 loaded. Directx 9.0a.
The only installed apps that I could think might be causing the problem were Sysmetrix, DesktopX, and Cursor XP, other than those the only things that I have on my system are OfficeXP. I unloaded those and the problem persisted. I've run it full screen at 16 bit and it went without a hitch. Switched back to 32 and no go. Any ideas?

Was you able to run 0.981 in 32bit color mode? I didn't change graphics libs between builds. What exactly is it doing when you start it up in 32bit color mode?
I want to do the campains right. I have a story written up that you can play through, with cut scenes, etc. but I would have had to severly limit it to cram it in to the 1.0 release. Instead there will be a 1.1 or a 1.2 but it will be a while until I have that done.

I had a thought on this. Open up your Pocketwar.set file in the metalshard directory and change setting number 44 from 0 to 60. That is the refresh rate it will try to use. You are changing it from default to 60hz. See if that makes a difference.

Tried the .set edit, no go there... I have played it before in 32 bit desktop before, that's all I run my windows at. I have installed desktopx though, I think that may be the cause. To clarify whats happening - the game is loading, I see the a flash of the title screen, then it minimizes to the window to a title in my windows bar (start button bar where all open windows show). When I click on it, it tries to open it, then immediately closes again. I had this error before with Dungeon Siege, needed to reinstall directx... Gonna try that and a fresh install of pocketwar.
I'll let ya know how it works out...

Yep, that did it... DirectX reinstall and everything works now. Thanx for jumping on this so quick.
I'm ecstatic to hear about the campains, I think that will be an incredible addition.

Hmmm, I wonder what the real cause was? Do you think it was DesktopX?
