HowTo / Notes


Please see how-to for version "Total Annihilation + Core Contingency + Battle Tactics + 3.1 patch" at  , just ignore anything to do with multiplayer, core contingency installation and so on, and installation will be from the demo .exe , rather than from a cd.

Demo specific notes:

- I feel that the demo probably won't run playably unless you can set your screen resolution to 640x480.

      - Note that the full TA retail version, with the 3.1c patch installed, is I feel fully playable, doesn't have the mouse scrolling issue that the demo has.

      - essentially, unless you can set your screen resolution to 640x480, the demo will probably crash on startup, unless you use a virtual desktop.  If you create a virtual desktop, you may find that scrolling with the mouse is unworkably difficult, because you have to position the mouse pointer exactly over the edge of the window.
