Odd message when placing aim marker

Not a biggie, but odd thing happens sometimes when placing aim marker, thus far only in practice mode. After aiming and left clicking marker, a message box appears and states: "Connection Status. Time out in 60 seconds." Yet, I didn't go online. The seconds don't tick off and when I swing,...

Re: Dreaded "minimum screen resolution" problem

Unfortunately, I don't have access to the desktop now. But I did resolve the laptop issue (sort of). I found the attached thread (below) at LSPN which addressed this issue. It requires a change in the registry entry (Mode=3), which I made, and it allowed Links 2003 to function on the laptop. https:/...

Re: Dreaded "minimum screen resolution" problem

Unfortunately, on desktop, that's the nub. When I start Links, go to Options then Graphic Settings, Device and Display options are blank . When I then choose my videocard, I get the screen resolution message and am blocked from going further. pmgolf: As to the downloaded version, it seems to be iden...

Dreaded "minimum screen resolution" problem

Attempting to install Links 2003 on a new desktop and laptop from discs. However, I get the following message: "The minimum screen resolution required by Links is 800x600. The current resolution is less than this. Links will now exit." I've read all the posts I can find on this issue witho...

Re: New Question re Copying/Pasting Links 2003 to new computer

Well, thanks all. I do indeed have every CD - and floppy disc - going back to the original version of the game. I'll take them out of the cabinet and get started.

Re: New Question re Copying/Pasting Links 2003 to new computer

To be honest, that's what I was hoping to avoid, i.e. starting from scratch. I wanted to "port" my "old" installed version of Links from one computer to the next without having to hunt down the discs and re-run everything. The copy/paste of the game (which had been copied to an e...

New Question re Copying/Pasting Links 2003 to new computer

As mentioned in another post here, I am copying/pasting links from and old (and failing) computer to new computer from an external hard drive. I thought I had done this successfully (except failing to move Players, Saved Shots, etc.) but now I noticed a new issue. Unless the external hard drive is p...
