the .dll file thing isn't good... are you guys installing it in the right place? Should be jowood/freakout... check the location and see if the .dll is there. I see three files in mine -
If you're missing one of those, try reinstalling to the directory it prompts (might just be some weird location thing in the installer). If that doesnt work... I dunno. I could host these three files for you guys and you could just try copy/pasting them in?
Oh, and more of the game: Great graphics, wohoo!! I love the three axes of rotation as well. However, like SSX and previous games, rotations can get kinda weird. Smooth rodeo's and mistys are totally possible, but the game has a hard time making smooth rotations, and tends to jerk on the front/back axis a lot. Corks are SICK. Use the roll keys and spin keys to make some sick ass corks and bios (roll right/spin left gets you corked, so sick!!!). They do have D-spins in the game, as well as dinner rolls, rodeo's, misty's, cork, bio.... even underflips!
However, while the trick labeling is there, a lot of the time, the trick you do doesnt show up (and you dont get the points!!). The game is also terrible at counting rotation (which doesnt help the previous problem certainly). And rails are... depressing. The game is built for a BC type ski experience, and rails are, accordingly, pretty lame. Good luck with switch ups. I'd like to see how a park level would work, guess I have to buy the game now. Speed is also somewhat infuriating, it feels like I'm going so slow. And turning is more like splashing speed than actually carving. But still, great game, I've spent a long time on it already, and hungry for more.
Let me know if you need those files, I'll hang around on NS for a while to help you guys!
