Heaven and Hell patch

www.heavengame.de/

It’s nice when software companies listen to their customers. I, and a thousand other Heaven & Hell players have been complaining about bugs in the game, that cause it to hang rather unceremoniously. What is the problem? graphics card, mouse driver, soundcard? Who knows! CDV have now released a patch, which will hopefully sort these problems.

I am a little nervous to try it again (I don’t like crashes, except in Colin McRae Rally 2.0) but will report how I get on.

Mouse & Keyboard in XP

Here’s a curious thing. My new XP system kept hanging recently, and culprit each time (when it wasn’t the annoying Debuglog.log) was Point32.exe. That’s my mouse! So I checked out Microsoft’s Mouse & Keyboard website and discovered that I should be using Intellipoint 5.0 for XP, rather than the 4.1 installed. Let’s hope things are a little more stable now. Microsoft must be fed up of my almost constant stream of automated crash reports.
