I'm on the demo Windows version, and I seem to be hitting alot of dead ends with my pilots where there's apparently been a glitch. I couldn't seem to get those fix pack addons converted correctly either. I think I'll register it when the updates for windows come out.
Do you think that perhaps it would be possible to intergrate some of the plugs into the actual game, so you could activate them from the options menu ingame - that plugin that allows you to choose which storyline you follow would probably be a good example of one to include.
Zacha Pedro, who doesn't have boardband these days? For EV, I'd happily download 4 gigs of sound files- this is a brilliant game regardless (even though i seem to have hit a knot).
There's no glitch, you just aren't yet meeting all the requirements for your next mission. Why don't you make a new topic on the Nova board asking for help with your pilots, and give more information about where you are in the game. We'll be able to help.
Also, you couldn't get those plugins to work because you are unregistered. Even if you did all the steps to convert a mac plugin to windows format, they still wouldn't work because you need to be registered to use plugins. Although, it's actually a good thing you couldn't get them to work. If you did get any fix plugin to work, it would almost be certain that you would have introduced new bugs into your game. Almost all fix plugins made have been made for bugs that were removed from the game before version 1.0.6 (the current windows version). What happens when you use a fix plugin that fixes a bug that has been solved is that the plugin will cause the bug to happen again. Never use a fix plugin unless it says it is made for the version of Nova you're using. Generally only the plugins made by Slagblah to fix issues with the game are clear on what versions they should be used for, and how to use them.
Also, new features are no longer added to the game. Nice idea, but unless it's a bug fix, it isn't added by new updates.
