10gb later.... IT WORKS!! I installed openAL and ran the game through the launcher and it plays. :)
Will this be the retail version that I'm playing until I add stuff? I just want to play the retail campaign, not bothered about user missions. To be honest I have no idea what that beast was I just installed. I don't know how you disable any of the "MediaVPs" but the game looks pretty and plays smooth though Ive only played some of the tutorial so yeah.. I guess will have to wait and see how performance is.
also theres a 3.6.12d and 3.6.12r I dont know if it matters which one I use..
Yup should be the retail campaign by default. :) I'm surprised it runs so smoothly on your netbook! That's awesome. I've heard complaints from people with dedicated GPUs and non-atom CPUs complain about framerates and stuttering. Out of curiosity, what are your specs?
I am not sure about the difference in the engines as I have the MacOSX versions, but based on what I have my guess would be that 3.6.12d is the debug engine and 3.6.12r is the release engine, so use r.
