I downloaded it and tried to install it but it deleted my Linux partition. I tried to restore it from a backup I made on Tandy cassette but something happened and the file was corrupted. So then when I tried to boot Linux Mint it began to play the Beatles White Album backward and my dual boot Windows machine became possessed. I called an exorcist and he got rid of the demon but the Holy Water shorted my power supply. I have no money so now I have to wait until my wife can get an advance on her check to buy a new motherboard. She's talking to her boss about it right now. I don't know why she has been gone so long. They need to turn up the AC where she works since many nights she comes home all sweaty and out of breath. Right now I'm posting with my sons Etch-A-Sketch plugged into a potato. It keeps droping wifi though.

That's funny, it works fine on my Commodore 64 using a 1541 drive to load it very fast! Have you tried turning it off and on again?

I think you should ask your wife or son for help. You are starting to sound like someone who lost their minds with the new medication they gave you.

It is just Tdillo or one of his socks or friends or alt-right supporters taking the piss out of me at my expense because I live life in a hard mode having a mental illness that makes it hard to do things.

I'm doing a lot better, trying to get up earlier in the morning and not stay up too late. But on the weekends it is different.

one missing feature: cheat mode so the player can stay alive forever, because getting stuck at the first level is no fun

No cheats needed. It's four ex, which means eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate. The first level is a tutorial anyway. But basically to win, you got to pump out marines. 'GO GO GO!' Spam your barracks and pump out a whole squad of marines. Like 10-20 of those bastards. Don't get attached to them. They will die. You treat them like Doritos, when the Zerg/Protoss chew them up you make more. You'll need two things. Crystals & Vespene Gas. You need more Crystals than you need Gas. Assign two to four workers to harvest crystal. Make an extra worker and have him as designated builder/repair. Send your squad out. Do not let them just wander around. Strength in numbers. Move them all together in short increments. Use attack move.

So, get your base going, gathering crystals, build your supply things, pump out marines. Once every thing is going well at the base send out your troops. (Explore). If you have a squad and you move them just enough to reveal the map each time they will deal with anything they encounter. Don't forget to keep building marines. You'll need them to reinforce the jarheads that get wasted and you'll also want some to defend your base from attack. As you reveal more crystal sites eXpand your base. As Terrans you can move your barracks and command center. they lift off and fly. Or you can upgrade and build new ones. As you get new abilities/stations/upgrades research them and continue growing. Divide between expanding your base, building defenses and exploring locating and exterminating the enemy.

One thing about these kind of games. They were made back in the day. WAY back like Pentium 100 640x480 50lb CRT days. Be patient. They are meant to take a LOT of time. You'll be sitting around a long time waiting for shit to build shit to research etc.Don't neglect to repair, don't neglect to build, don't neglect to defend. Don't expect to send one marine at a time out in the wasteland. Send a whole squad, send a whole army. Build bunkers when you can and stock them. By the time you get to the third or fourth level you will be flipping through like a ton of things. It's not like today when the AI takes care of all the nitty gritty. You are the AI and you have to take care of EVERYTHING. Which is what makes it so fun.

If you like this kind of thing look for Westwood studio titles, Command & Conquer, and Red Alert. Oh man. especially Red Alert and Red Alert 2. They're fun 4x but they are also toungue in cheek funny as fuck. I have them all on disk. From the original C&C to the Tiberian shit. Fucking awesome games.

If you are still stuck then look on YouTube, somebody has a video up showing how to play. I say don't use cheats not because of some high-minded idealism. Don't cheat on these old games simply because when you do the game gets BORING AS FUCK. Seriously, it turns into such a cakewalk it's not even worth your time. If you absolutely positively need a cheat then I recommend using a TRAINER instead.
