anyone else getting flickering text/subs for example when you finish the opening and the carrier jumps to the system the text saying "making jump" or something to that effect and the name of the system flicker like crazy that I can barely make it out or is it just me?
I believe this happens when you uncheck "disable desktop composition" in the compatabiliy settings.... or the other way around. It's possible a few people can't run the game with unchecked but you could try switching whichever yours is set to and see if it helps.
Alright I'll give that a go then,thanks
Edit: nope still didn't work, it seems that this is due to a bug that can crop up in the fix for the DVD version or so I have read on a thread on the WC News site anyway. It seems the way to fix it was to change a compatibly setting in the patch sadly I don't see a way I can do that with the GOG version as the config tool was supposed to be in c:\Wing commander 4\Troubleshooting which doesn't exist in the gog version.
Ah well I wil live with it's not game breaking or anything.
