There are also people living in countries where they're stuck on analog modems or have to use (shitty) wireless because telecomms companies want in the realm of $2000 just to connect them in the first place.
Don't consider the conditions you have in your country to be the same globally.

Sorry - for content:

I have no idea about Fifth's figure of $2000, but this graph might provide some insight in the whole "the world is not uniform," thing.

This is how much cash Polish Telecomms wanted from me just for connecting a bloody phone line and I mean the most basic sort. Then about $250 for their modem. Then about $125 monthly for a connection rated at maybe 2 mbps tops.

Needless to say, I said "fuck that" and got wireless instead.

Cool

I am running this on WinXP Pro 32 bit with no problems. However, trying to set up audio and music only results in weird repeating static noises. Like vvv-bn-ZEEET, vvv-bn-ZEEET. So, no sounds. But that's fine, the game is quite atmospheric visually, and in particular, spatially.

As some reviewers have... er... NOTED #%&*!? ... ... there are times in the game when you walk, and walk, and walk, and walk, and walk.

Here's the thing. The game is designed so that you feel the size of your environment. Ringworld is freaking huge!! That ledge on which they park the ship is gigantic, 'goes for miles', and these guys are on foot looking for widely scattered possibly usable crash debris.

My friends, that task is gonna take some tedious walking. It adds to the feeling of being stranded on this monumentally gargantuan monolithic shelf in the deep of space.

Same with Quinn's walking speed aboard the ship. It's a big ship. The hangar bay is cavernous. The time it takes crossing from one end to the other is in keeping with that.

It's good immersion design, IMO. It would be fun designing a sound track for this.
