 The link essentially does nothing else. But if it gets lost, you can create it yourself with the start parameters. Cracks do not only work with the basic game, but also with the expansion. The link essentially does nothing else. But if it gets lost, you can create it yourself with the start parameters.

 ===== Problems ===== ===== Problems =====
-Under Win 7 x64 the game can be played just as well as under XP x86. But what happens sometimes are incompatibilities with a certain hardware. There have been cases reported where the game ran so slowly on a PC with Dualcore 2.4 GHz and an ATI Radeon Mobility 2600 XT that it was fast on a Pentium III with Riva TNT 2 in comparison to that. Driver updates may help here.+Under Win 7 x64 the game can be played just as well as under XP x86. But what happens sometimes are incompatibilities with a certain hardware.

 +Under Win 10 there are cases where the game simply won't start. It shows a black screen for a moment and then crashes. [[https://www.moddb.com/mods/ground-control-windows-10-crash-fix|This fix]] may help to solve the problem.

 There is also a Full HD patch in circulation, where the game is started with the switch ''-1600'', which uses the resolution 1920x1080, if you delete the file ''data\gcvideo.dat'' before. Advantage: No more distorted 4:3 images and more overview. Disadvantage: Less accurate clicking and especially the graphical controls are even smaller. This also applies to the map overview, both in the small and in the enlarged view. There is also a Full HD patch in circulation, where the game is started with the switch ''-1600'', which uses the resolution 1920x1080, if you delete the file ''data\gcvideo.dat'' before.

 For Internet games, ports 15001, 15101, 15200, 20000-21000, and 25000-25499 (TCP + UDP) should be enabled. However, this is relatively meaningless, because there are no dedicated servers anymore, because the [[World Opponent Network|WON]] servers have been shut down in the meantime. There is also a dedicated server software to play on the Internet, but it would also try and report to the WON servers which no longer exist. So you can forget play via the ordinary ways. Direct IP input is not possible, so this Decicated has relatively little sense. There is, however the possibility, to use [[GameRanger]] so start games over the Internet. But this has not been tested yet. Allegedly GC is played on the Internet relatively active (for the age of the game). For Internet games, ports 15001, 15101, 15200, 20000-21000, and 25000-25499 (TCP + UDP) should be enabled.
