I have just recently got home with my copy of Lock-On - eagerly looking forward to some serious flying. Unfortunately it is the most buggy peice of S**T i have ever seem released by UBI. Did someone get all worked up about deadlines and release dates and force the public release of 'alpha' code?
I have tried the software on two machines.
A home made Giga-byte GA-8PENXP, Intel P4 3.2GHz (with HT), GB DDR, >500Gb disks, NVIDIA GeForce Ti 4200 (128Mb RAM) with AGP8X. The other machine is a Shuttle SS51G Barebones system with Intel P4 2.4GHz, 768Mb RAM, 120Gb Disk and NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 (64Mb Ram). (PS: for licencing reasons I did uninstall first LoL).
Lock-On crashes the graphics (and game) - not just the planes - on both computers.
The operating systems are WinXP Pro with all the drivers, BIOS and patches that are availble to each system. This includes DirectX9 etc.
ALL other games work fine - these issues are limited to Lock-On.
This game is NOT fit for purpose and I would like my money back. I have the receipt (from PC World) dated 9th Jan 04.
Do i have grounds for taking it back?
