In the game's stock configuration, if you're far enough away in the fag, and the enemy's sensor network can't see you, you're effectively invisible to them.

Hover mouse pointer over sensors on the Commander screen to see detection ranges.  I don't remember at what range IFFs become visible just from line-of-sight, but it's pretty short.

I was thinking about this topic just the other day.  Having old skin packs is great, lots to choose from for personal choice, but what with the lack of auto-skin-download and the fact that so few people from the early days play, I think what you'll end up with is 4000 unused skins in that pack.

What we really need is a new central repository/distribution method for skins so that people can share out their current personal skins.

VGH

You owe it to yourself to get in and play a few games, if for no other reason than to experience it when there actually IS a community of active players.

You may love it, you may hate it.  Your mileage may vary.

Once you've installed the game, navigate to Tribes2\GameData\Classic and read Classic_readme.txt and Classic_technical.txt for tons of details.

Yes, it's "Virus Free!" rather than "Virus, Free!"

Are you running in full screen mode?  I have a Radeon and I've noticed weird graphics glitches when running full screen, nothing like you're seeing however.  Switched to running in windowed mode the other day and it seems to have resolved the issues for me.

Not really a fix, but perhaps a viable workaround.

Sure, that makes sense, but doesn't address the problem if a valid script file that's just poorly coded or contains intentional badness.  You'd want to prompt the user, I think, before simply downloading and installing things, and some means of easily rolling back would be a necessity.

So, what's the consensus about malicious or malformed scripts etc?  If a bad script gets auto-downloaded and auto-installed, might not your T2 install become auto-fubar'd?
