There have always been plenty of games only available for one platform or another. I suspect what is changing really is that a lot more console games are now looking desirable to the PC player than ever before, while the increased complications of cross-platform builds have made ports less likely.

PCs still have utter dominance in terms of RTS games, but in most other areas that's no longer true.

There's also the piracy angle - or rather the perception of the piracy angle. Rightly or wrongly, a lot of games companies think most of their sales will be lost to piracy, which makes the PC format less attractive.

Here in Indonesia, most CD sales are pirated! I mean, according to official statistics the percentage of sales is 80 something % pirated, 10-20 % original: I think it's more like 93% pirated, 7% original! grin So here, PC games are a big hit, so are playstation games. But as for 360 and PS3, they are relatively new to Indonesia, putting them out of the price range of the average person, and based on what I've observed with other electronics they will probably be affordable in about 1-2 years... sad but never mind, I'm content with just a PC. wink

Back on track now - I'm currently playing

Assassins Creed (PC)

Such a pretty pretty game...

I can see were the repitition can be a problem. With such a great looking open world you wish you could interact more with everything around you. Instead you spend time doing the same tasks each time, so that you can get to your assassination. PC version benefits from 4 extra mission types in order to address that variety problem - I think it helps at lot, plus they more interesting to do than the default ones from the consoles.

I love the story so far, and many said before that it's the story that drives you through this game.

Of course having it looking so nice helps as well - Playing with maxed out everything, including max anti-alias, and at 1440 x 900 res.

I think I can help with that. As found on another forums, there's an official patch for running Alpha Centauri (with or without the expansion, Alien Crossfire) on Windows 2000 or XP. It can be found at Firaxis Game's downloads page. Also located there are the ordinary bug fix/balancing patches.

If the game gives you an error upon launching it that your CPU is not supported, try opening the Alpha Centauri.ini file in your Alpha Centauri directory with a standard text editing program. Change the line saying "ForceOldVoxelAlgorithm=0" to "ForceOldVoxelAlgorithm=1", save the file, and try running Alpha Centauri again. It may still tell you your CPU isn't supported, but if you click OK it should load the game properly.

Hope this helps.

Wow, I have to try, one quick question, do the patches before installing Crossfire or after, and try that TEXT fix you mentioned b4 or after installing Crossfire? Do you know or have an order of events by chance? Your time and info is greatly appreciated... thanks man.

I believe the order I used was:

  • Install Classic S.M.A.C.
  • Install the expansion.
  • Patch the expansion up to 2.0
  • Add in the XP fix
  • Attempted to start the game, was told my CPU wasn't supported.
  • Editted the .ini file


Since it was months, maybe even over a year since I last installed S.M.A.X. I'm not entirely sure if this is the order I went through, but if it's not the precise order it's at least quite close. (And I still have my copy installed currently.)

Bear in mind, if you install the expansion and patch it to 2.0, you do NOT need the 4.0 patch to the classic version.

I think i'm geting old... not much of the recent games attract me all that much!

World of warcraft -> Was playing 1 hour a day -> Stoped now, no interest in new content.
Prototype -> Interesting game but boring after a couple hours.
Divine Divinity -> Still playing!
Baldurs Gate -> Starting from 1st with a new class combo.



Not many of new games realy hook me up to the screen, wich is a shame. Hoping on Divinity 2, Diablo 3 and Dragon Age mostly... If i dont like them, i go and start fishing in the evenings by the lake :P

I think i am with you on the "getting old" part smile

Its SAD when life becomes all about getting up early so you can get to work before traffic gets too bad frown

And just to make a point... i decided to install DD again now.... killing monsters may just be more therapeutic than anticipated. (I REALLY need to kill something - specially after work)

For the last 6 months... the only playing i got to do was in the exam halls... (i wrote 9 exams in the last 6 months - and have 3 to go in the next 2 months)

I miss everyone here.... so decided its time to start playing the good old games again (Just like you i have no fancy for the new games on the shelves currently - waiting patiently for D2 ED)

Off to monster slashing i go laugh

For me it's the Battle for Middle Earth 2 these days. I love buying old games and then play them until there's nothing left I didn't know/see/do in it. I'm thinking of buying the Rise of the Witch King expansion for it soon.

Empire At War. Complex, frustrating in the beginning, but the learning curve is thankfully not too steep ...

Need For Speed Undercover, don't know why I play it though. The game's way to bright, some types of races make completly no sense and the tuning consits of 6 sliders which you can set for top speed/acceleration. The game's good for some arcade racing, but I liked Pro Street more, even though in Pro Street you have no free driving.
