Описание:
Homeworld (дословный перевод - "Родной Мир") это удивительная стратегия реального времени в лучших традициях жанра Space Opera (Космическая опера). Эпическая история Homeworld начинается в необъятных просторах вселенной. Хозяева мирного общества, жившего почти в центре галактики... В ресурсах они не испытывали недостатка, и все было хорошо, пока не вторглись завоеватели, которые изгнали оставшихся в живых на далекую и безжизненную планету. Сотни лет спустя, все знания оказались потеряны. Однако найдя Путеводный камень, которые сохранил координаты Родного Мира, раса восстановила знания и принялась за постройку Материнского корабля, который должен был стать прибежищем миллионов во время путешествия к Homeworld.
Homeworld - Не зря игру называют Epic Real Time Strategy! Это самая захватывающая игра, которую я когда-либо видел. Какие там прекрасные битвы, красивы пейзажи! Homeworld отличается великолепной графикой, которая отлично рисует трехмерные головокружительные космические пейзажи, а также корабли. Также в игре имеется поразительное музыкальное и звуковое оформление, которое полностью погружает вас в мир космической оперы. Есть интересный и захватывающий сюжет, который развивается во время прохождения игры. Потрясающий набор космических кораблей - от мелких истребителей до гигантских крейсеров и космических авианосцев! А также, самое главное, это небывалый игровой интерес! Остается прибавить, что действие игры происходит в трех измерения, а не в двух, как мы привыкли. Тем не менее разработчики потрудились над созданием удобного управления в трех измерениях.

III. ADDED FEATURES
==================
o Homeworld Dedicated Server Support
- If you create a game and are behind a firewall, you can now choose the
server you use when you start the game. People can have lower latency games if
they select a server that is geographically close to them. Also, people will
be able to create their own Homeworld Servers with a separate program we will
release soon.
New Commands added for online chatting and game control and creation. All of
the commands are preceded by an ! mark, this designates the start of a command.
o Ignore
- Works only for the chatting in a room. In the chat text box use the
following syntax: "!Ignore " You can use this feature to turn add
and remove a person from your ignore list.
o Ban
- Works only for the Creator of a game. This is entered into the game chat
text entry box, you use the following syntax: "!Ban " You can use
this feature to add and remove someone from the list of people banned from your
game.
o Kick
- Works only for the Creator of a game. This is entered into the game chat
text entry box, you use the following syntax: "!Kick " You can
use this feature to Kick someone from your game.
o Limit
- Works only for the Creator of a game. This is entered into the game chat
text entry box, you use the following syntax: "!Limit " You can
use this feature to limit the maximum number of Human players in your game.
o The statistics files are now being checked for inconsistencies in multiplayer
games. If inconsistencies are detected, warning messages are added next to the
appropriate line in the statistics files.
o The ability to view the world from any ship's point of view. Simply run
Homeworld with /pilotView option (e.g. Homeworld /pilotview), and then focus on
a single ship. Hit Q to toggle pilot view on and off.
IV. SOUND CARD ISSUES
=====================
Running Homeworld in Windows 9x:
o Homeworld will use the DirectSound mixer if your sound card driver reports as
certified, otherwise Homeworld will use the Waveout mixer. If you have a newer
sound card with new drivers, such as the Creative SoundBlaster Live or Diamond
MX300, you may receive better performance by using the /dsound command line
option because the drivers may not report as certified. If you have a slightly
older card, such as the Creative SoundBlaster AWE32, and are having problems
with sound try using the /waveout command line option to force use of the
Waveout mixer. If you experience crashes that you believe are related to sound
try the /waveout and then the /dsound command line options to see if one mixer
is more stable than the other with your sound card and drivers.
Running Homeworld in Windows NT4:
o Homeworld will default to using the Waveout mixer, you should not use the
/dsound option unless you are having crashes that you think may be related to
sound.

V. CONTACTING SIERRA
I. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS
=======================
- Windows 95/98/NT 4.0 (w/service pack 4.0) CD-ROM
Minimums:
- Pentium® II 233, 32 MB RAM
- 100 MB HD Space (Plus 50 MB Permanent Swap File)
- 4x CD-ROM Drive
- 4 MB PCI Video Card (16-bit color, DirectX compatible)
- 16-bit DirectX compatible Soundcard
- Win-compatible Mouse
Preferred:
- Pentium® II 350+, 64 MB RAM
- 400 MB HD Space (For Full Installation)
- 12 MB+ 3D Accelerated Video Card
- Win-compatible Mouse with Mousewheel
Internet/Multiplayer:
- 32-bit Internet Service Provider with 28.8+ kbps Modem or LAN
DirectX 6.1 is required to run the game. It is included on the Homeworld disc.
Additionally, to download it, point your browser to Microsoft's DirectX
download web site at:
http://www.microsoft.com/directx/homeuser/downloads/default.asp
II. GENERAL TECHNICAL ISSUES
============================
- Most video compatibility problems can be resolved by hitting the TROUBLESHOOT
button in the video options screen or by pointing your browser to
http://www.sierrastudios.com/games/homeworld/noflash/c-support.html. We
recommend using the TROUBLESHOOT button in D3D or software video modes as task
switching in OpenGL mode has been known to cause problems on some systems.
- If you have a dial-up Internet connection, we recommend you establish your
internet connection before you click on the INTERNET or TROUBLESHOOT buttons in
Homeworld.
- We recommend minimizing or closing all programs with "always on top" windows
(i.e. ICQ) before starting Homeworld. Leaving them maximized will cause the
Windows Operating System to switch from Homeworld to those programs when you
click on certain parts of the screen.
- Windows NT and Windows 98 users can alt-tab out of Homeworld then back in in
both D3D and Software modes, but doing so may cause undefined problems on some
system configurations. This is especially true if you run another 3D
application when Homeworld is minimized. Alt-tab is not available under
OpenGL. In any case, we recommend avoiding task switching while running
Homeworld. You do so at your own risk.
- Hitting the Windows Key is equivalent to alt tabbing and can have similar
undefined results on some configurations, especially OpenGL. The Windows key
is disabled in D3D.
- You must have enough free disk space available on your swap drive in order to
run Homeworld. Use My Computer->Properties->Performace->Virtual Memory to see
what drive your swap file(s) will be on. We recommend running with a
fixed-size swap file if you have the disk space or ensuring there is at least
50MB of free space on the drive you have installed Homeworld to.
- Taking screenshots has been known to cause hardware lock-ups using certain
hardware accelerators. This is unavoidable due to video timing issues. Note
that this is extremely rare an only with hardware acceleration. Screenshots
are completely safe in software and quite safe in hardware. Make sure you have
enough free disk space to save your screenshots.
- To access the software version of reference card or manual, the user must
have or install Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0. It is included on the Homeworld
disc. You can also download Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 at
http://www.adobe.com/prodindex/acrobat/readstep.html#reader.
III. GENERAL GAME ISSUES
========================
Updates to the Manual:
A) At times you may notice a ship turn to wire-frame mode when the camera goes
through it or when it is cloaked. This is a design feature and not a bug.
B) According to the description in the manual, Salvage Corvettes can capture
"heavily damaged" ships. As it stands now, they can steal any ship. The
Salvage Corvette will be able to capture a ship regardless of its health.
C) Ships won't auto-retaliate when set to evasive tactics.
D) When playing internet games with CPU opponents, the CPU opponents may die
when human players die. This is because the CPU opponents are distributed
across the human players to lessen the processor load on the captain. This is
not a bug.
E) Omitted from the manual is the fact that the Support Frigate can repair
capital ships. To activate this feature, select the Support Frigate, hold down
the [Z] key and leftclick on or drag a bandbox around the ship to repair.
F) The manual states that capital ships set to Evasive tactics will retreat
from their opponents. This is incorrect; they will stand their ground.
G) Screenshots (which can be taken by pressing Scroll Lock when the game is
running) will be placed in the Screenshots directory. They will also be used
as background images when loading multiplayer games.
H) Omitted from the manual is the fact that several Salvage Corvettes are
required to capture certain capital ships. Frigate = 2 Salvage Corvettes,
Destroyer = 3 Salvage Corvettes, Heavy Cruiser = 5, Carrier = 5.
IV. VIDEO CARD ISSUES
=====================
To obtain the latest drivers for your hardware download the drivers from your
card manufacturer's web site. See below for links to the driver sections of
various hardware vendor's webpages.
Additionally, you may want to install and run a third-party driver installation
program such as GLSetup (www.glsetup.com) which contains many OpenGL drivers
for a variety of video cards. GLSetup version 1.6 is provided for your
convinience on the Homeworld CD to save you download time should your current
OpenGL drivers not work with Homeworld. Recognize that GLSetup is not
supported by Sierra's technical support, however.
All compatibility comments below assume that you are trying to run Homeworld
with the Default OpenGL renderer as a first attempt. Depending on your
chipset, however, it may be necessary to run using 3dfx OpenGL, Direct3D, or
software. Homeworld places labels beside available renderers in the Video
Options screen that indicate the graphics API a particular driver uses: GL for
OpenGL, D3D for Direct3D, and SW for software.
If your chipset is not listed below you should consult the documentation that
came with your hardware to determine how to get updated drivers.
Some 3D hardware does not provide an OpenGL implementation and running
Homeworld with Default OpenGL selected as your renderer will then not be
accelerated by your hardware at all. If Homeworld pops up a dialog box
informing you that the selected renderer is unaccelerated, try Direct3D next,
then software if all else fails (the Homeworld software renderer is
considerably faster than OpenGL without hardware support). If you must use the
software renderer, try running Homeworld with the /rasterSkip commandline
switch for a moderate speed increase; some people find this too visually
distracting, so try for yourself and see.
Homeworld also supports the /safeGL commandline option. You should run with
this if any of the following problems occur when using OpenGL as your renderer:
oddly coloured backgrounds, no stars in the backgrounds, no background bitmap
in the loading screens, or ship meshes that are missing polygons or are oddly
coloured.
Recent versions of Windows 98 provide drivers for certain 3D chipsets, but they
generally do not contain an OpenGL ICD. GLSetup drivers or drivers from your
vendor's website are preferred.
If you experience problems when testing a new display mode (new resolution or
bitdepth), be sure to see if Homeworld will run at 640x480 16bit. Some cards
incorrectly report resolutions they cannot properly support, and Homeworld may
fail to recognize the problem. If you select a new display mode and Homeworld
appears unresponsive (ie. black screen or garbled text) either wait a few
seconds or hit the Spacebar to have Homeworld restore the previous mode. If
all else fails, try pressing CTRL-SHIFT-F12 to re-enable the default renderer
(software, 640x480 16bit).
Note also that not all 3D hardware supports the same set of features as
another, and some scenes and effects will appear differently on different
system configurations. This is to be expected.
Users with an AMD K6 or greater processor with 3DNow! instructions or an Intel
LX chipset on their motherboard may experience crashes or system lockups when
using OpenGL with NVidia Riva TNT2, 3Dfx Voodoo Banshee or Voodoo 3, and S3
Savage3D boards. AMD users are encouraged to use Direct3D for hardware
acceleration if this problem occurs.
Below are a list of known issues and driver recommendations that have been
tested successfully with Homeworld.
3dfx (http://www.3dfx.com/view.asp?PAGE=nusdrivers)
* Voodoo Rush - this chipset is not currently supported for hardware
acceleration mode, but recent 3dfx driver releases may provide support
* Voodoo Graphics - no known problems with 3dfx drivers. Drivers from Diamond
Multimedia for the Diamond Monster card have caused some problems with
Homeworld. Using reference drivers from 3dfx has been seen to resolve these
issues.
* Voodoo 2 - no known problems (recommend driver: 3dfx reference driver
3.03.00, 6-24-99)
* Banshee - no known problems
* Voodoo 3 - no known problems with 3dfx driver 1.0, April '99. A rainbow
effect on the background is encountered with driver 1.02.11 7-22-99, we
recommend using driver 1.0.
Note: 3dfx fullscreen-only devices (Voodoo Graphics, Voodoo 2) must use the
3dfx OpenGL renderer for hardware acceleration due to a limitation in
Microsoft's OpenGL hardware support mechanism that doesn't allow for
fullscreen-only devices to be supported via Default OpenGL. Other 3dfx
chipsets (Banshee, Voodoo 3) can use Default OpenGL, or Direct3D if problems
occur with GL. The 3dfx OpenGL renderer will only be available if you have a
fullscreen-only Voodoo card in your system. If you have a Voodoo Graphics or
Voodoo 2 card, it is highly recommended that you run GLSetup for driver setup;
there are known problems with Diamond's Monster II drivers that GLSetup
corrects.
Intel (http://www.intel.com/design/graphics/drivers/index.htm)
* i740 - some users may experience missing textures on ships. Get the latest
drivers from Intel's website to resolve this problem or try GLSetup.
nVidia (http://www.nvidia.com/Products.nsf/htmlmedia/software_drivers.html)
* Riva 128, 128ZX - text may appear blocky or blurry, but gameplay is
unaffected, no other known problems, recomended driver v 3.37.
* Riva TNT, TNT2 - no known problems, recomended driver Detonator ver 2.08
nVidia reference driver or for Creative Labs boards Creative Labs driver ver
1.09, 3-24-99.
3DLabs (http://www.3dlabs.com/drivers/index.html)
* Permedia 2 - does not support all OpenGL blending modes and some scenes may
look incorrect, but gameplay is unaffected. Users may prefer to run with
Direct3D due to faster frontend performance
* Permedia 3 - texturing is not currently supported by drivers in Windows 95
ATI (http://support.atitech.ca/drivers/drivers.html)
* 3D Rage 2 - OpenGL is unaccelerated. Direct3D has limited display mode
support, but no known problems
* Rage Pro - no known problems. Select Direct3D for hardware acceleration,
driver version 4.11.2560, 5-28-99, is recommended.
* Rage 128 - no known problems, recommend D3D mode or for OpenGL use driver
included in GLSetup 1.6.
Matrox (http://www.matrox.com/mga/drivers/latest_drivers/home.htm)
* M3D (PowerVR PCX2) - this chipset is not supported
* G200 - no known problems, recommend D3D use. We do not recommend using
GLSetup with this card.
* G400 - no known D3D problems. Recommend driver 4.11.01.2110, from 8-31-99.
OpenGL choice is available, but we do not recommend using GLSetup with this
card.
Rendition (http://www.rendition.com/usersupport.html)
* Verite 1000 - no known problems
* Verite 2100 - select Direct3D for hardware acceleration. Some driver
versions may occasionally display backgrounds without smoothing, leading to a
very polygonal look. Effect is intermittent, and gameplay is unaffected
* Verite 2200 - no known problems
S3 (www.s3.com)
* Virge - OpenGL is unaccelerated. Direct3D has limited display mode support,
but no known problems
* Savage 3 - OpenGL performance may be choppy. If this is the case, use
Direct3D.
* Savage 4 - no known problems, recommend Diamond driver 2.04, 6-1,99 for
Diamond cards or S3 reference driver 8.02.11, 5-18-99.

Supported Video Cards
nVidia cards: www.nvidia.com
ATI cards: www.ati.com
Matrox: www.matrox.com
Unsupported Video Cards
Intel: www.intel.com
SiS Xabre: www.xabre.com
3Dlabs: www.3dlabs.com
S3: www.S3graphics.com
Non-standard Resolutions
Homeworld2 has been designed for the standard 4:3 aspect ratio display.
However, you can use other any unsupported resolutions of your choosing, such
as those listed below. Furthermore, We have included a solution for some
non-standard resolutions as listed below. If you're running Homeworld2 on a
laptop or other LCD display, you may experience some distortion or stretching
of the game screens if you're not running in the recommended resolutions for
your specific monitor.
To address this, we've included the following work-around using a command line
option switch. In order to specify the resolution that you want to play
Homeworld2 in, use the following parameters to set your resolution. Simply cut
and paste from the text below into the Homeworld2 shortcut Properties
For Example, the Target of your windows shortcut should read:
C:\Programs\Sierra\Homeworld2\Homeworld2.exe.
And if you want to run Homeworld2 in 1024 x 768 resolution, using the following
command line switch (typed exactly as):
-w 1024 -h 768
(**note the case sensitive and space sensitive nature of this command line
switch where
-w sets the width value and the -h sets the height value.)
Therefore, if you want to run Homeworld2 in 1024 x 768 resolution, the 'Target'
field of the Windows shortcut for Homeworld2 should read:
"C:\Programs\Sierra\Homeworld2\Homeworld2.exe" -w 1024 -h 768
You can try using this method to run in any one of the resolutions listed below
or others that may not be listed. However, none of them are guaranteed to work
in all cases. Here are several examples. Simply cut and paste from the text
below into target line after the .exe portion of the existing text.
1152x864 -w 1152 -h 864
1920x1440 -w 1920 -h 1440
2048x1536 -w 2048 -h 1536
III. GENERAL TECHNICAL ISSUES
----------------------------
i. Multiplayer Issues
Modem users may experience connectivity problems when playing Homeworld 2 on
Gamespy while running a personal firewall (such as ZoneAlarm or Norton Personal
Firewall). Disabling the firewall during play may solve those problems.
If you want to play a multiplayer game of Homeworld 2 and you are behind a
router, you may need to do one of the following:
a) Disable your router so that your machine is connected directly to the
internet.
b) Unblock port 6073 and ports 2302 to 2400 (these are the default DirectPlay
ports used by Homeworld 2).
c) Force Homeworld2 to use a given port number by using "-port ####" at the
command line, where #### is between 1 and 65535.
If you still encounter difficulty in connecting to GameSpy, please allow
traffic for at least the following TCP ports.
6667 (IRC)
80 (HTTP)
27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
28900 (Master Server List Request)
29900 (GP Connection Manager)
29901 (GP Search Manager)
13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
6500 (incoming, UDP, default roomquery port; can be customized with
roomqueryport= in svc.cfg)
ii. Dual Monitor Setup
You will not be able to play Homeworld 2 on your secondary monitor unless both
are running from the same supported video card. If you have two video cards,
the primary card must be supported by Homeworld 2 or the game will not run.
iii. Troubleshooting
You may experience various display problems depending on your system
specifications. Below are the current known issues.
a) Alt-Tabbing out of and back into Homeworld 2 may cause certain ships to
render improperly.
b) Homeworld 2 does not run on Windows 98 SE systems that use CMI 8738 Onboard
Sound Card. Playing with a different sound card or by disabling sound entirely
(by using the -noSound command line parameter) will allow the game to run.
IV. GENERAL GAME ISSUES
----------------------------
i. CD Keys
Please remember, no one from Sierra will ever ask you for your key. If someone
logs onto GameSpy using your CD key while you are in a GameSpy lobby or game,
you will be kicked out.
Remember, do not give out your CD key to anyone or you will not be able to play
multiplayer games!
ii. Graphics Settings
Homeworld 2's default graphics quality settings are set to low. If you want to
experience the full visual experience of Homeworld 2, you will need to set
these values to high.
iii. Installation of DirectX9.0
Homeworld 2 requires DirectX9.0 or higher in order to run. You will be prompted
to install DirectX9 during the installation process. If you have already
installed or want to install DirectX9 later, please select no.
Note: If you select no during the installation process, you must install
DirectX9.0 manually before Homeworld 2 will run.
iv. Gamespy Arcade
While Homeworld 2 provides Gamespy Arcade as an optional part of the
installation process, Homeworld 2 is not supported by it. If you want to play a
multiplayer game on Gamespy, please select the GameSpy option provided in the
front end.
v. Content Download
Unique player Badges must be placed in your bin/profiles/badges/ directory.
Badges downloaded from other players will be placed in this folder as well.
Levels will be downloaded to your bin/profiles/levels folder and be placed in a
folder with a unique id. If you want to host a game with a downloaded map,
please ensure that you copy it to your data/leveldata/multiplayer/deathmatch/
folder

Важная информация

Запуск игр осуществляется ТОЛЬКО с ярлыков. В противном случае рискуете например тем, что у вас в Homeworld и Homeworld Cataclysm слетит прописанное в реестре широкоэкранное разрешение.Данный репак проверен на Win XP SP3 и Win7 x64, так что думаю никаких проблем с играми возникнуть не должно.Ни в коем случае не заходите в опциях в "Видео", когда играете в первую часть и катаклизм, потому что это приведет к слету настроек разрешения! Однако, если такое произошло, то в папке с игрой или в меню "Пуск" можно отыскать файл "Разрешение (Resolution).reg" (в меню "Пуск" это уже "Восстановить Разрешение") и с помощью него восстановить желанное разрешение.
Data_xxx.dat, где ххх - RUS(1C|Fan), ENG или VOICE_GSC, это файлы локализаций, и их можно в случае чего не качать.Знатоки советуют играть с оригинальной озвучкой и русскими субтитрами,так как русская озвучка портит атмосферу игры.

FAQ

Homeworld, Homeworld Cataclysm
Если у вас два монитора (или монитор и телевизор) - не удивляйтесь, если выйдя из игры, вы обнаружите все ранее открытые окна на вторичном дисплее. Корректное отображение на вторичном дисплее информации (например, идущего параллельно фильма) также будет невозможно - игра делает большую черную полосу шириной пикселей эдак в 200 в области граничащей с основным диспелеем на вторичном. Поэтому перед игрой рекомендуется оставлять только один активный дисплей.
Для улучшения быстродействия и стабильности вы можете добавить в строку "Объект" ярлыка следующие параметры запуска:
для процессоров Intel - _путь к файлу_ /heap 134217728 /enableSSE /device fx
для процессоров AMD - _путь к файлу_ /heap 134217728 /enable3DNow /device fx
Существуют также другие, не столь важные, команды, которые можно добавлять к ярлыку. С ними можно ознакомиться здесь - http://www.homeworld3.ru/index.php?name=Pages
Homeworld - 2
Игра обладает потрясающей и по сей день графикой, однако можно ещё ещё графония, выставив желаемые параметры после добавления ехе'шника в профиль панели управления видеокарты. У меня это выглядит вот так
Кроме общего возрастания плавности картинки, ещё и повышается fps.
Homeworld - 2 Complex[ENG]
Это - лучший мод к Homeworld 2, посему и добавлен в антологию. Создатели Complex с каждой новой версией стремятся довести мультиплеер игры до абсолюта. Также им удалось сделать чрезвычайно развитый ИИ, так что даже если не играть с людьми - комп может дать вам прикурить, особенно по началу, пока будете разбираться в чрезвычайно разветвлённой и витиеватой системе развития Сайт мода http://www.homeworld2complex.com/
Кому не надо - можно не качать Complex.dat
