Hi all. I'm new to ultimate, having got it just today during the special.
Really you could say I'm new to galciv, having played only a few games of dread lords, and that was a while back.
I've found the wiki and am reading up on it, so won't have questions on most things until finished anyway.
What I do have a question on is: how to cheat? I put the parameter in the shortcut like the wiki says, but you have to use galciv2.exe, not gc2launch. But then it crashes if you start in the twilight folder. But if you don't start in the twilight folder, you aren't playing ultimate.
Before anyone says anything, this is how & why I use cheats. I 'fix' everything except one element and play until I thoroughly understand that one thing. Then fix all but another element until that's understood, so now two elements are released to the real world. Then fix another, and another until all are understood and no cheating. I find this to be a fast way of climbing the learning curve without the pain of losing over and over until you finally get it. Not that it should matter to anyone, but most always someone complains so hopefully now they wont. Wishful thinking maybe.
So anyway, thanks for the help. It looks to be a very fun game so far. Once I understand it anyway.
