No problemo fellas - this game's a helluva ride and if you like those cheesy sci-fi flicks you'll fall in love with it. I actually recognize some of the weapon sounds from an old toy "future blaster" gun I used to have.

Anyone knows the hardware requirements?
Haven't found anything on their site...

ArnaudNime: This game will run on most modern PC's. It's based on Quake 2 and all the special eye-candy can be turned off to make it more playable on lower-end rigs. Not sure what the minimums are, but my guess is that the only real minimum requirements are a 32 MB graphics card that supports OpenGL and a 1.4 GHz CPU. As with anything, make sure your power supply is adequate or you'll experience choppy gameplay during any kind of combat.

NO .. it does not work on Win98 this game expects a newer version of Windows ! so .. not so good for the older computer.
Even Kernel-x can't get it going.

Wow, this has grown over 2x the size it was when originally listed here. It's now at 1.11 GB uncompressed!

we have added great amounts of new content, like maps, skins, a new weapon etc.
The rest is from improvements in the code. even external files like OpenAL, to get the best
doppler sound effect come in the package :)
