I reinstalled BOS on my system, however this time I had gotten a new hardrive (in one of those removable hardrive things) it was over 2 gigs (the new harddrive) so i did a full install. I then chased around for a couple of days till I found a downloadable patch for it but I can't get the patch to install. all I get is "game not installed on computer" message. I don't know if the patch is looking for a particular pointer in the windows startup menu or something but as the game is fully installed on another drive than my OS the patch can't for some reason find it.

Any one know what I can do to fix this? I can open the patch with win zip and over write any files but I don't know where things should go. the good people at interplay have continuiously ignored my requests for assistance. (love companies who don't know what customer support is) :roll:

Also anyone know where I can get the special mission "Springfield?" ( i think the rader buggy looks cool and this is the only mission that has it) I found a site that had it listed as a download but you couldn't get the download to work properly. icon_sad

Thanks if you can help me figure this one out

Find a line in your BOS.CFG file (it's in the /core directory) that says:
Quote:
{misc.bonusMission} = {false}

Change it to:
Quote:
{misc.bonusMission} = {true}

That's it.
