I couldn't see any thread for this, so I thought I'd start my own.
Every time I complete research and the GNN window comes up to describe the new tech, the animation of the robot is jerky and slow and the rotating image of the new tech is the same.
I have the latest video drivers for an overclocked GeForce 6800LE, my processor is a 2.1GHz Athlon 2600+ and all of the other in-game videos work OK. I have turned anti-aliasing to 0. Is this a bug or something that I need to do?
Also, a couple of other things:
1) how do I know if I have installed the latest patch? I downloaded it from this site, but it only let me enable the CE features rather than download a patch. The version number on the GC2 title screen says 1.0 rather than 1.0X.
2) I am getting the same problem with saving ship designs as other people have reported (every time I save a new ship design with the same name as a previous designed ship, the game crashes). Is this the 'goto bug' that is being fixed in the latest patch?
3) Finally, a gameplay question. How do I know if I am producing enough food for my colonies? is food production measured on an empire-wide basis or planet-by planet? The problem I am finding is that I never know how many farms to build or if I have enough built.
