Issues

  • You cannot change resolution ingame, the screen will go blank. To resolve this go to the hidden .cedega directory within your home, choose the Homeworld folder and edit the file system.reg:

"deviceToSelect"="d3d"

"screenDepth"=dword:00000020

"screenHeight"=dword:00000400

"screenWidth"=dword:00000500

This will max the ingame resolution (1280x1024x32). Be sure to close the game before editing.

  • Should you encounter choppy textures, disable Anisotropic Filtering in Cedegas graphics settings.

outdated

  • Direct3D mode does not work
  • May have problems going to full-screen in OpenGL mode on some systems
  • Switching to Either D3D or OpenGL mode usually causes the system to slow to a crawl or lock up
  • May not be able to switch to OpenGL in Cedega 4.1
  • When installing in kde you may have to turn off the sound system even if you run cedega thru artsdsp. It gave me a "no 16bit sound card detected" error until I disabled the arts sound system.

Missing/Incorrect CD workaround

To avoid the "Missing or Invalid Homeworld CD" error, simply patch the game to 1.0.5 and it will start without any problems.

Description

Homeworld's epic tale begins in the far reaches of the universe. You were the benign lords of a peaceful society located in the center of a lush spiral galaxy. For as long as anyone could remember, no one challenged your peaceful existence. But then came the conquerors, invading with the sole purpose of overtaking your world. Billions died, and the survivors were relocated to a cold, lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy. Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of your previous existence has been lost. Only vague myths remain, until the discovery of an ancient tablet buried within the ruins of a half-destroyed craft in the great-banded desert. This Guidestone reawakened the knowledge of your ancestry, and set your race on the path home - coordinates leading straight into the heart of the galaxy. Sixty years ago, construction began on the giant Mothership that will carry millions of your people into deep space. Construction is now complete. Your journey to the Homeworld begins here...
