I've downloaded the lastest patch for clear sky but when i run the game my saved game is not compatible and will only let me start a new game. any advice greatly recieved as its starting to get to me. Thanks.nutter101

well, yes you will have to start again - it's that simple - annoying i know, but the last couple of times i did the swamps (i tried to play the thing 4 times) it didn't take long - just run around doing whatever they tell you and you'll be back at the Cordon being gunned down by that machine gunner before you know it...

an old DOS Star Trek game about 25-30 years ago - it was set in a grid, which was the universe, which contained several galaxies - spaceships and starbases were represented by a letter and you had to guess the right angle to fire torpedoes to hit the enemy - was quite absorbing actually

a galaxy looked something like this, with 'K' for Klingon, 'E' Enterprise and 'S' Starbase:

. . . . . K . . . . .

. . . . . . . . . . .

. . . E . . . . . K .

. . . . . . . . . . .

. . . S . . . . . . .

Wow I remember playing that, you also had x amout of moves to clear the grid of Klingons.. Great fun and boy do I feel old now.:)

smart! never thought i'd find someone else who knew about that game - you're right it was a good game - proof that 'less' can indeed be 'more' :)

It's obviously SoC. He referred to the barkeep, the flash drive, I linked to my SoC review and wasn't corrected.

there's barkeeps and flashdrives in the second one too, but whatever, no worries

Congratulations, you've just managed to complete the easiest part of the game.

i watched the E3 live demo for Wolfenstein and was a bit disappointed TBH - OK, it was only one section but it looked a bit dark and as though the sci-fi fantasy/elements had completely subsumed the WW2 elements - also looked like they were trying to incorporate elements of Bioshock's plasmids etc

ao although i loved RTCW, i'm not so enthiusiastic about the new game now, though will keep an eye on it

Ok, I've got to the next bit and it says I've got to capture and hold this location. I've killed all teh enemies, what do I do there? Are there still soem left or do I have to do soemthing else ? :P

The bit in the swamps is a bit confusing for sure

If you look on your pda it should indicate if there are stalkers coming your way - if so just hang out 'til they get there - at which point they say thanks and i think there's a reward.

In the swamp level, you basically have to carry out a few missions until it gets to the point where you can get a guide to take you to the Cordon.

Just remember to pick up all rewards, and make more money by picking up and flogging loads of gear at the Clear Sky base before you leave the swamps to go go through the Cordon, as it's not easy getting back

it sounds like the problem the game originally had with some kind of corrupted file, and which was only eventually solved (for me anyway) by the latest patch.

when you started playing, had you fully wiped the game off your PC, including old saves, and installed the most recent patch before starting?

Who plays timeshift?

I do, I think it's a great game. It's fun, beautiful, has a good story and I love the cool dieselpunk setting. I really don't understand the negativity toward this game.

i agree, i think it just lacked a clearer story and a couple of cut scenes here and there to set up the context better - i'd love to have known more about the alternative world and how it came to be, instead of just being left to guess.

but i did enjoy it
