Default Installing [LockOn Gold] over V1.02 NOVICE help Plz

hello my friend! am truly sorry if I picked wrong thread for this (help question).
well! the thing is I have version 1.02, and today I purchased [LockOn gold] fifth aug 2006

I have tried to locate installation procedure how to install over previously game such my version 1.02!... do I have two uninstall my version first?

Or can I just install GOLD version over my previously one?

Do I need some patches for this installation?

If I have to uninstall my version first! which files should I save? I haven't learned yet 'which flies are most important!

Don't know if it matter! but I have Thrustmaster Hotas Cougar!! GOD!! I love this stick.

By the way! I know that some GOLD version, have some problems with disc 1 or 2, tried to write to [Evolved Games] for some information!.....If you can see on the package folder!... if I have purchased the real deal.

No answer or reply yet! well I think I will notice when I installing it.

best regards/// Mr.KingCobra

Default I got It!

Well the best way to install it without any compatibility problems is over a clean install of 1.00. But if you haven't modded the game then you can easily just upgrade to 1.1. The only patch you need after that is 1.12a, it is the latest patch.
I don't know how the GOLD edition looks like but I guess that the first disc is 1.00 and the second one 1.1 so you need to put disc 2 into your pc. If you want to have multiple installs of LO (all versions from 1.00 to 1.12a) then read this thread: http://www.****************/modules.p...7b8b868024f4f3

Default developer tool?

is there some sort of "developer's tool" or console command for lockon that can create a log file of problems encountered during the game?.....

i have been trying to chase down a screen freezing problem, which i have posted in this forum has been a couple of weeks now, and i'm at my wit's end ...i have tried everything i can think of and things my flying buddies and previous posters here have thought of, to no result....
here's the problem, again: screen freezes, sound continues for few seconds, then goes silent with same frozen screen for a few more seconds...then everything snaps back into motion, but that many seconds down the course...or i've crashed into the ground....
here's what i have tried already:
reinstalled lockon
set graphics settings on low
ran lockon with default skins only
Dx diag - no problems
adjusted the page file
eliminated as many background programs as possible
ran 3DMark06- found out i have an average computer
updated bios
disabled the motherbord audio
updated video drivers
changed graphics config to "nv4_disp.dll" from the renderer dll
attempted Pilotasso's regedit, but it wouldnt keep the settings
....and damn, can't remember what else

GIGABYTE GA-K8N-SLI, AMD Athlon64 3500+,
(2) 1gb A-DATA DDR 400 RAM,
EVGA 256mb GeForce 7800GT,
WestDig 74gb 10k Raptor, WestDig 250gb 7200,
Soundblaster Audigy2 Value,

...please help....don't want to have to abandon lockon!

Warn: (0%)


I've just upgraded to Windows vista from xp, and I experience a very annoying sound problem. When I am sitting in the cockpit the sound always sounds like the engines are on 100%, despite I haven't even turned them on. Because of this I can hardly hear any other sounds: the real engine, airbrake, flaps, especially the RWR sounds.

The strange thing is, when I set EVERYTHING to 0 in the options/audio tab, I can still hear this sound.

Anyone else had this problem, or knows the solution?

@cloud83: I have exactly the same problem with my LockOn under Vista32, no matter which driver I use or setting I configure in Soundpanel of Vista or Mixer in LockOn. Do you have found any information or idea of how to solve or minimze this problem? Your help is very much appreciated. Thank you

Actually, its a matter of personal preference here Budd.. I'm running 2 BFG 8800's in SLI.. I get very sharp clear renderings with this setup...
