Discussion about the game.
Machines just had its 20th anniversay

I started playing when I was 4 years old, with the demo, so although English is my native language I was limited by the fact that I couldn't really read! You could definitely say I grew up with this game. I also tried out a demo of Starcraft around the same time, but I preferred Machines due to the advanced graphics and interesting plot. The Gorilla in that campaign mission was not easy to take down! I ultimately wound up needing to mass reapers to defeat it. Later on, my dad got me the full game after a time, and have I continued to play it even on XP and Windows 7, although lately I had not been able to get it working on recent builds of Windows 10 (I will try again with the new installer after I get some unrelated driver issues sorted out). By the way, I still have my original game disks and box, and the Micron PC I first played it on (I also use Macs heavily, although it has been a while since I used the vintage Mac Plus that I have).

The game, resources, tools, and various files
Announcing community patch 1.5 - godsend : ]

I have three remarks after playing some campaign missions.

On Talon/Talok Prime (snowy map with eradicators) the voice message is played in infinite loop In the mission Espionage and Kidnapping where one has to command a treachery attack of a commandant, one of the two commandants appear in the wrong place, nearby the starting point, making this mission very easy Sometimes the sounds of Machines dissappear or sounds of Machines fighting far away is to be heard during 1st person mode Homeworld - the game was minimized and the console was shown stating that a model could not be extracted from .x file(something like that)? Final Assault - the game suddenly shut down with no error messages etc. The Controller - crazy things happened with Judas Warlords.
*The treachery attack haven't worked for some time from time to time.
*Sometimes Judas Warlords changed colors from friendly fire?

Other than these small issues everything's perfect for now. Congrats :)

Early Alpha/Beta/demo versions

@lew Hi!
I recently had many issues to handle (moved to another apartment, etc.). Yet, I managed to recover all the files from my PC, and the game (final product, not the demos) works OK :)

I'll see what I can do. Sorry for the delay.

High resolution terrain textures (test)

@M123 Well, that example looks perfect. Now if only it wouldn't take me 13-14 minutes to upscale one 512x512 texture :(
