    Plays all NOLF series games
  1. Swaaye, a moderator at Very Old Games on New Systems (http://www.vogons.org), just posted a fix for the dread Client MFC crash on Aliens vs. Predator 2 which he reports also works on NOLF (1 I presume) when the issue occurs on a Microsoft Surface 4 (Win 10 x64) machine. The solution involves using a WinXP DirectInput DLL in the game folder. More details and a copy of the .dll here: http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=42686#p570987 I have no idea if it works in other circumstances, but it might be worth a try for other users affected by the Client MFC issue on recent Microsoft OSes.
  2. I happened to be prowling through insidemacgames.com on the Wayback Machine, and I came across some NOLF wallpapers by Brad Custer from back in the day. Nothing extraordinary, but much greater variety of sizes for the modern desktop compared to what was released for Windows by Fox Interactive or Sierra.

  3. The NOLF2 fan site kit is hosted here on UnityHQ: http://unityhq.net/forums/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=51 I was able to get the NOLF logo from a 1280x1024 official bitmap wallpaper fairly easily. It's 471x319 pixels with a transparent background, although it can be cropped a bit smaller. PM me an email address, and I will send the GIMP .xcf file (in case you want to edit it) and a .png export.
  4. The Fan Site Kit (si_nolf2_fansitekit.zip) for NOLF2 has what you need for that game. In the "logos" folder there is a logo graphic with transparent background (logo-nolf2.psd) that is 2291x505 pixels. This should be on the DVD I sent you a while back. As Eliteone indicated, you should be able to use Photoshop or GIMP or some editing program to make the necessary conversion. I am not aware of a fan site kit for NOLF, so I would suggest trying to cut what you need from some wallpaper.
  5. What exactly are you referring to by this "fix"? Microsoft now has a number of fixes for mouse/pointer issues in Windows 8.1 specifically: Mouse pointer stutters or freezes when you play certain games in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2908279 Mouse input in some games is incorrectly scaled on high-DPI devices http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2907016 Button clicks for internal touchpads and pointing sticks are not responsive while or shortly after the keyboard is used http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2907018 Note that the first fix CAN be extended to apply to games other than the ones currently supported by the update rollup through registry manipulation, so proceed with caution.
  6. Thanks for uploading the mods. I know a lot of folks will be happy to have access to them again. Eliteone should have the Alpha 9.2 release that I sent and will hopefully have it uploaded soon.
  7. This behavior is normal. Both the original NOLF and the GotY releases have CD checks in all versions. This may hold the answer to your question, but I'm not sure off-hand which release it applies to: http://unityhq.net/forums/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=52 (Eliteone beat me to the punch.)
  8. Just to make sure we are on the same page, I wanted to point out that this is a later release (9.2) of the Kittycat Alpha mod, but it isn't the last. URA released a 9.3 version as described here: http://ura.exofire.net/index.php?site=news_comments&newsID=25 This page indicates that there is at least one bugfix in 9.3, and I have no idea what bug is fixed. The page also indicates that the 9.3 version had the filename KittycatA9-3-DL.exe, so search your hard drives and archives for it. URA's forum indicates that Version 11 revisions of the mod were also in circulation as well. I would suggest that folks send in ANY other versions of the mod they can lay their hands on.
  9. I have a copy of Kittycat Alpha 9.2. It's 20.5 MB. If Eliteone will tell me the best way to get it to her, I will send her a copy.
  10. I don't normally try to run games on my laptops, but since I have a couple that are similar to Billy's, I decided to install NOLF and see if I got similar results. I installed the GotY version of the game on the following two laptops: Dell Inspiron N5110, Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, Intel Core i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10 GHz, Intel HD 3000 Graphics, 6 GB Memory Gateway NE56R12u, Win8 Professional 64-bit, Intel Pentium B950 2.10 GHz, Intel HD 2000 Graphics, 4 GB Memory I get the same graphical issue reported by rngbeastx in this thread (with photo): http://sficlan.net/Unityhq/forums/forums/index.php?showtopic=3643 Billy can confirm whether this is the same graphical corruption he sees. Note that rngbeastx has a laptop with dual display drivers, and he apparently had the same issue with both an Intel and NVIDIA chipset (he switched renderers). The OP in this thread had an ATI chipset. So this is not an issue specific to a single graphics manufacturer. All these problem reports apparently have the following in common: 64-bit Windows (7 or 8) on a laptop. I installed NOLF GotYon a Compaq CQ5110F Win7 Home Premium 32-bit desktop machine with an AMD Athlon x2 7550 64-bit processor and an NVIDIA GeForce 210 card installed, and did NOT have this graphics issue. So the issue is not peculiar to Win7/Win8 in general. It would be interesting to see if somebody with a 64-bit Win7 or Win8 desktop is also having this issue (I don't have one). I have to wonder if this is possibly a (64-bit) DirectX issue or some by-product of Microsoft's heavy-handed policies on 64-bit drivers (for laptops and possbily also for desktop machines).
  11. Actually, in indicating the CPU, Billy was also telling you the graphics chipset since this particular Intel CPU has on-chip graphics (Intel® HD Graphics 3000): http://ark.intel.com/products/53438/ (Unless the laptop manufacturer decided to add a stand-alone graphics chipset)

    See this thread for sites: http://sficlan.net/U...?showtopic=2805 In particular, the (Old) SparedLife site seems to have some accessible skins via the Wayback Machine. The Wayback Machine has been reporting that a number of NOLF sites are on servers that are currently down for some reason, and there is no telling when they will be accessible again, so you may have to be patient. If you want to do your own skinning, you may find some accessible tutorials on some of the Development and Editing sites as well. Good hunting!
  13. Yeah, I can hear the camera breaking just thinking about it.
  14. http://www.007mosaic.com/ They say to "upload a basic self-portrait or a photo of your best 007 pose." Perhaps we should be submitting our best Cate Archer pose. See if 007 can stand the competition. Hmmmm.....
