  1. They state that there's no plans to do a re-release because the rights are spread across several companies.
  2. Monolith has been tweeting about the Nolf series 18th anniversary and did a stream with some of the devs.
  3. Happy Holidays, Christmas Gift, Joyous Saturnalia, etc., etc. to everyone.
  4. You can search for "youtube to mp3". There are a number of websites and apps that will take a Youtube URL, extract the sound, and download the resulting MP3 to your computer.(I'm leaving off a link to any specific website as these things tend to come and go.)
  5. Here's the Nolf 2 soundtrack in one complete track. You can always download it with a youtube to mp3 converter. The video portion does list the soundtracks, but unfortunately there aren't any timestamps. At least this will let you listen to the game music until you can find a version with the tracks separated.
  6. It's nice to see people still writing about No One Lives Forever.
  7. Also, have you tried changing the Compatibily option "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:"? I've read about folks changing this option to fix various mouse problems.
  8. Is Nolf using one particular GPU? I'm wondering if you can force the game to use the other GPU. It might be how drivers are emulating the older version of DirectX that Nolf uses.
  9. I've never seen anything official that the Lithtech engine was GPLed. Unfortunately without something from Monolith / LithTech / Touchdown / etc it is best to assume the version floating around isn't legally GPLed. :/ The safest thing to do would be to contact Monolith and ask them about the status of the engine license. All the links I've been able to find ultimately refer back to a post make here stating the engine was GPLed. Given that post has nothing to establish the legality of the relicensing (a text file in the source code is not sufficient as that can be faked:/) it is an area to be very careful about.
  10. An Asus VG248QE would be one to look at. You would get your 144Hz speed at the price you want, though it would be a TN panel. (A TN panel will look more 'washed out' over the more expensive IPS panels.)
  11. Yes, though most use the LivesForever mod over the LivesForeverPlus mod. (You can widen the column with the mods to see the full name.) Mine isn't showing any servers, either, at the moment. I haven't had a chance to try out multiplayer for quite awhile so I'm not sure why no servers are showing.
  12. Download URA's multiplayer launchers for Nolf 1 and Nolf 2, plus the LivesForever mod for Nolf 2. All three of these are featured downloads in their respective sections.(Nolf 2 has a Needed Files area that includes the maps you'll want, plus the other two Nolf 2 files.)
  13. Here's an older thread with the same issue. Compatibility mode might have fixed the issue, but the original poster never replied. A Google search on "interfaceresmgr" showed various solutions, from updating the sound card drivers to making sure you have a TnL-enabled video card. Unless you have a really old computer or very basic integrated graphics chip, TnL should be available. That said, make sure your video drivers are up to date as the game could be trying to run the graphics is software mode. :/
  14. The 3rd party app, Nvidia Profile Inspector, might be a possible work around for the crashes. I haven't used it myself, so I can only say use at your own risk.
  15. You might try going into the Nvidia control panel, adding Lithtech.exe under Manage 3D settings -> Program Settings, and setting Monitor Technology to Fixed Refresh. (I left all the other settings at their defaults.) Nolf 1 does tend to have problems when it is running over 60fps, so it could be a possible issue. I did have an additional problem with the game because of my dual monitor setup. I know this isn't your specific issue, but I'm adding the steps I took in case they might be of use to you. Below is a screenshot of my primary monitor that sometimes happens when I launch Nolf 1. The game is actually displaying on the *second* monitor. The mouse and keyboard input, though are still happening on the first monitor. It is quite weird. I can fix it by setting compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 (not SP3) and re-selecting my display resolution from the multiplayer launcher. (In this case 1920x1440.) If re-selecting the display from the launcher doesn't work, you can edit the autoexec.cfg in the game file to force Compatibility mode success seems to vary from person to person. Eliteone has success with one set of options and I've had success with a different set. You might have to try different combinations to see what works best for your system. :/ It's annoying enough that I've been tempted to setup a Windows XP virtual machine just for old games.
  16. Would you happen to be using a G-Sync monitor? I just upgraded to one and started getting the Client MFC error. Forcing G-Sync off for the Lithtech.exe program fixed the issue.
  17. Do you have any mods installed? I know the LivesForever mod can cause problems with the single player game.
  18. You should be able to see the version number on the bottom right from the main menu. My Game of the Year edition shows its version at 1.004, which is the final one.
  19. Unfortunately, I haven't tried that mod so I don't know what to suggest. Hopefully someone will be able to help out.
  20. I donated towards the total. Hopefully some others can pick up the rest.
