Hi all,

I am assuming that there is only one demo and that is the CE one that I have been trying out.

I had played Harpoon back in the day, and I was really starting to enjoy myself, but then my computer went crazy. I don't know how else to describe in. I only had the demo and one web browser running. I clicked on an air unit to have it RTB and then the entire game interface sort of collapsed on itself. Then the desktop turned white. Then I could see parts of it, but it kept jumping around. Then the startmenu would appear and the taskbar, but it would be at the top of the screen, then it would all go blank (white) and then it would be at the bottom. I could not even regain control with control-alt-delete. I finally had to force a shutdown with the power switch. fortunately things seem to be okay when I re-booted.

Please tell me this is not a random, know thing with the game. I would not like to see that happen ever again.

My system is XP SP3.

I will probably only be running Harp3 if I purchase the game anyway as it seems to have some features that I really want to have. Unfortunately the demo is for the CE version. I would like to try the other version prior to purchase, but I don't see a demo for HP3

Definitely sounds like it is unrelated to the demo or game, as I can't say I can recall anyone else reporting that kind of an issue.
