    Please don't post if you're post isn't going to be helpful to the situation. I will remove such posts. To the person whose post I removed. Eliteone even created a Patreon account cause you said you couldn't use paypal and had requested that a Patreon account be setup so you could pitch in. The Patreon account is still empty with no patrons a month later.

    In a nutshell. It costs $$ to have the site https://. It puts the secure padlock icon before the web address in your browser. That means all your activity here is secured. It costs $$ for the licensing for the forum software. This includes the downloads module and tools to keep spammers at bay. By keeping the downloads secure there a very low risk of downloading compromised files. It costs $$ to host gameservers monthly. It also costs to have web domain. This is the 30,000 level of things. The same few people pitch in. For sometime now Eliteone has been paying the shortages out of pocket. Larry here is one of the regular donors. I've contributed as well has a few others. Most come here grab files for free and then some complain if they don't work 100%. The fact that this site is here for games that are about a decade old should be at least appreciated. Unfortunately it's not. As the banner up top says if all of the members here gave up one coffee ordered at Starbucks or one fast food meal and donated that money here instead we would have rocket speed downloads and gameservers for all 3 games.
  4. I've enabled the downloads again. However it is at a reduced capacity. If things don't turn around here soon with donations the downloads will run out of bandwidth again and that will be the end of them most likely. I is unbelievable that no one has bothered to pitch in this month.

    IMPORTANT- README!!

    Downloads are running at a reduced capacity at this time. We hope it's a temporary thing but I asked Eliteone to reduce it to prevent having to pay more money out of pocket to increase the bandwidth. It's damn sad that most of you can't sacrifice a single Starbucks or fast food meal to chip in here. I've looked at the download stats and lots of you have benefited from the files that are hosted here. Yet under 1% of the site users here have bothered to pitch in. It's not fair for Eliteone to have to beg every month, going on years now to try to get some help with site and gameserver expenses. It's apparent most don't care. The stats show people just want the damn free stuff, yesterday. Well folks that's BS. We've tried ads but the revenue from them barely scratches the surface here. So where we go with downloads and soon the servers too is up to all of you who use the site.

    Forum upgrade

    Looks good so far. Glad to see the forum running the latest versions of the software.

    Can't download game files. -UPDATED Solved!!

    Newer versions of Windows 10 lack the install shield binaries which cause some of the original installers to fail to install.

    Hey ultimate, How familiar are you with windows regedit? I assume you tried installing in many ways, such as, the CD images, zip files and the installer that UHQ has now. Part of the problem may be where your registry thinks the game is opposed to where it's install at.

    Hey Ultimate post a screenshot from your programs and features installed programs list so we can see if you have something stripping the exe files.

    Berating/ insulting the site staff

    I will be helping out around here more and I can certainly tell you that giving those who helped bring this site into being and have supported it is a one way trip to......
