        Try here for WinXP Compatibility patch . Seems that they haven't fixed download links on new SMAC devftp site. I'll have to mail them about that.

        If I may ask, čemu žurba?

            You asked me some question like this, but in Russian...I think we all decided that most people pick flags that look pretty, not necessarily where they are from...so, this emu zuba thing, is it like a type of hat or something?

              It was not me, but my colleague Solver telling you something in Russian. While your assumption is generally correct, new people always choose flags according to their real location. It is also confirmed by the name in his proifle.

              Answer to your question would be "What's the rush?". I would be very interested to know how he aquired SMAC, since I believe they don't have it in stock in stores anymore.

                  Now I understand the "no response" part of your topic title...

                      Translation:
                      "No hurry but it doesn't work! I have to post this at Call to Power forums too." I start up the game, do everything, press launch the game and get crash to desktop. Sonuva. Put your call to power cd in your cd rom. Please solve this. I am not an expert on this things, so the whole procedure needs to be written down."

                      He also wants us all to run into highway traffic with our genitals exposed, but I might misinterpret that part.

                      The problem you described seems like a Call to Power one, not SMAC related. You'll probably need to wait for response on CtP board.

                      Regarding your previously described troubles with SMAC, have you attempted to install Alpha Centauri XP compatibility patch (try clicking the colored letters in my first post in this thread). It does most likely seems as a Windows XP problem? Also, do you have plain SMAC, or the Alien Crossfire expansion too?

                            I'm hardly active at the ACDG for the moment (or perhaps permanently).

                              I reinstalled alpha cantauri and reinstalled the compatibility patch and it's still not working, problem with cctp is somekind of cd detecting, put your call to power cd in your cd rom, i'm desperate, tried to play cossacks 2, not working, no more games to play:))
                              write me a guide of a safe installation.
                              i'll do everything, thanx. no more croatia here
