I can't download the infiltration mod, because everytime I try to take it the browser just showes me a blank screen.

I posted about the same problem back in 02-17-2000, and got the answer to my question. But when I searched for it, I was told that that file is no longer on the server!
Is this some kind of a conspiracy against a poor fin that would finally like to get playing this game thank you very much!

hmm, I tried it and it worked fine for me...
Are you on Netscape or IE? (I used Netscape)
Where exactly does the black screen appear?

I am on netscape. It just goes "Loading xxx...done" then nothing. AAAAAAAARGHHH! I finally get unreal, then I can't play the mod! (I have been waiting for 2 months for a friend of mine to finish playing UT, or rather get bored of it)

Because it crashes on Windows.

Could anybody of you send him the file per mail?

WOHOO!!! I managed to download from the given address, but which one is which? Is "inf27z.zip" the manual zip? What is a Umod format? Do you need a special program for it? If so, where can you get it? What's the meaning of life?

just doubleclick on the umod version and it will install Infiltration....
some users have problems with umods, so the pure zip can be installed manually by copying the files included the way mentioned in the readme.txt

Glad that the link worked.
About that meaning of life... playing inf ofcourse !

Well, in my experience, Windows 95/98 allows everything to crash Windows. But Windows NT 4.0 just allows everything to crash in on itself. It must use some form of crash containment technology. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Everything can crash and usually does, but at least the OS keeps running. But maybe I've just been lucky.

I haven't used 2000.

Computers launch nukes. They run cities and powergrids. They automate hospitals. They fly planes.

Are these really things we want the word crash to be associated with? My goddam command prompt never crashed.

What the hell was wrong with DOS? 5.0 was a dream, dammit. The only time anything would "crash" in it was when you needed more ram, and all that meant was loading your autoexec and config sys one by frigging one.

Do we really wanna make computers user friendly? Isn't that like taking out crossing lights because the red hand is "mean"?

I always did like DOS better than 3.11, I always liked 3.11 better than 95, I always liked NT better than 95, I always hated 98, and well, my Macintosh was always there for me

I doubt there are too many windows machines running powergrids and nuclear weapons control. If so, then there needs to be some serious mental health evaluations performed on the system admins.

You should see what they run on the Space Shuttle. It's about as far from user friendly as you can get. Mostly Hal/S and Assembler, all developed on an IBM mainframe. Very archaic, but a hell of a lot more reliable than the code behind Windows.

Ugh... Different autoexec.bat and config.sys files needed to run different games? Only being able to run one program at a time unless you used Desqview to swap between them? Drive letters? The horror that is edlin?

I'll take any Unix OS over that garbage any day.

Although it was sorta cute being able to have a working system consisting only of a single file, command.com... /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You didn't need different autoexecs or config.sys's to run games, you just had to run the lines one by one.

I'd take an assembly based system any day though. Whoever mentioned that earlier was so right. Very archaic, very stable.

Beware the Judder Man my deal when the server's phat.
Sharp of eye & quick of trigger his is, and cunning.
