On a side note, how does one set a rally point. I choose the option and then try clicking where I want it to go but to no avail.
Rally points are relatively simple:
Press the W key (or the key assigned to rally points)
Click on the first location (left mouse button)
Click on other locations, holding left mouse for vertical movement
Press W when finished to initiate rally point movement.

Select the construction vessel(s) you want to set the rally point for and press 'P' to get a standard "movement" disc and set your rally point. However, I think there is a bug in here because it works fine for the first location but any subsequent destinations seem to be ignored - the first location is always used. Having said that, I didn't investigate it too much as I tend to use the rally object command instead since I want reinforcements to follow my forces round the map. To do that, press command-P and drag-select a ship. (You must drag-select your target otherwise it will be interpreted as a "select ship" command - that's a bug too IMO).

No matter what I do, I can't seem get this fabled "smooth as silk" gameplay on my 1.25 Ghz eMac (Radeon 9200) + 768MB ram. As far as I can tell, I have all the settings set to the minimums and have experimented with the mouse settings but still get a very choppy level of scrolling and laggy cursor control.
I'm running 10.3.7 plus the latest HW2 patch is installed.
Is 10.3.7. the root of the choppy performance? Should I downgrade back to 10.3.6?
