Re: efs startup

It's attempting to run the opening video -- which probably bonks out on modern computers. In the DAT folder, there's an EFS.INI file and if you set "video_on=0", it skips the video loading attempt.

Yay!

I was just taking a break from some other work -- and happened to stumble on a screenshot of EFS. This, of course, made me think back to the still-modding community and I checked in here to see what was up. I'm very interested in the progress of your new mod (can't wait to hear what you call it!) as...

Yay new forum!

But still kinda quiet.

I have just re-installed EFS (again), and wanted to see what was new in the world of nova, etc. Not much, unfortunately.

Are there any quiet projects in the work, such as the clone?

Happy holidays!

How to install?

Good day, I just was wondering about the installation process for Hyperion (and FLCs...) The new gama archive contains the EFS subfolders with the new info, but just extracting that into my EFS folder will just overwrite everything. There are folders named "Original v1.4 FLC" etc, but they...

Re: Argh! Had to reinstall XP! -- Need registry info

Ahh, I should have mentioned that I did do that step already. There must be some other info EFS puts in the registry that it check for 'being installed' - not just the directx failure issue.

I can't remember if i put Hyperion or Nova in last time... Maybe it's time to start from scratch! :)

Argh! Had to reinstall XP! -- Need registry info

Good day folks, As it says above, I had to reinstall XP (actually, i reformatted my C: drive!) and lost all of my registry info for my installed apps/games. It'll take quite a while to get everything running again, especially modded things like EFS. Could somebody extract their registry info for the...
