I have three problems with Lock On (German Version, Patch 1.01 (maybe?) installed!) and i hope there ist someone who can help:
1. I have Windows ME installed withe a 9800 Radeon (not PRO) and an AMD 2600+ with 512 RAM
First Problem: I own the german Version of Lock On. When i try to install the 1.01 Patch, the Patch-Programm open's the MS-DOS Window and start extracting the files. But when reaching the last File, Lock On.exe, it stops going on. In every other MS-DOS-Patch you know that it is over, when the "Finish"-Text appears on the Top of the MS-DOS-Box. In the Lock On-Patch there is no Finishing-Message. After a few minutes i close the window by myself. The result is, that when i'm starting a training file (for example) i got the Message, that the Version of the Video-Files is not the same as the Version of the Exe-File and that there can be problems while playing.
Second Problem: I'm not sure, but i think it's about the incorrect patching. When playing A-10-Training-Mission 2 (and the other after this one), the A-10 crashes and there ist nothing i can do about it. The settings for Training are correct (60â?, no mirrors etc.). I heard that playing the unpatched game will solve this problem, but the unpatched game is unplayable on Windows ME. There are so many prob's that it becomes a torture even to set the options! There are also other Training-Problems. When i take control of the plane to replay the Mission by myself, it freezes sometimes when i'm choosing the Map-Screen or when shooting many unguided Rockets at once. It seems that if there is much smoke, it's over with fun=Freeze!
Third Problem: In the german Version of Lock On there is following sentence on the Geme-Box: Game and Manual in German! Yes, the Game is in german. BUT - the manual is NOT in German. Or better said, there is NO Manual at all! And the manual available for download is only English. Maybe my English is not sooo bad, but Lock On is not an WASD-Game like a simple Shooter and the English used in the Manual is very complicated. So, does anybody know where i can download a German Manual? Or ... is there a german Manual at all?
