Re: Targeting ROM reveals equipment

It still feels like something that would excessively complicate the interface, especially if the player is expected to configure it. A ROM that let the user press a secondary key to highlight the interior compartments of on - screen enemies might be useful, though. It'd be useful to all players, and...

Have you tried the method found here? If so, post in that thread to get a response from George.

I think that is too much, as it can be seen on intro screen.
I've got to agree here. I don't see a practical use for the information. That said, I'd love to see more ROMs added to the game with various functionalities.

Re: Frontier Download Link

In the interest of separating the weapons a player is likely to encounter from the ones that can only be found through winning the war on drugs (by setting all the dealers on fire), I've described my new arsenal below. Note that, because I've already killed everything hostile to me except the last r...

Re: Frontier Download Link

I believe the game ends in the Jakarta system. I have used a map ROM and found no forward stargate. I have yet to encounter any Star Destroyers, so I've got to wonder where I'd get one of those. I encountered one pod using enemy, though I don't know whether I died or killed it. Ditto one or two alie...

Re: Frontier Download Link

Apparently you can view installed devices when jettisonning items at a station. It turns out that the unknown device was an EMP deflector, which nullifies EMP effects imposed by enemies. Useful! I should remember to go back and finish up the freighter mission chain. It'll still be hard, but I've got...

Re: Frontier Download Link

I beat the Arena - the final fight is fairly easy, and the prize is 10k credits. I haven't mapped out the game yet, but it's looking like the systems at least have unique names. I wonder what George meant when he said there wasn't an end. I still haven't seen some of the enemy ships from the startup...

Re: Change Ship mod

Also it's quite funny watching a Balin dragon stretch itself out when you change to one of its sections. Like a Slinky spring gone crazy!
I always targeted the head. The body drags you in all sorts of crazy directions if you let it - it'll even move faster than light at the right angles.

Re: Britannia, Fleet and Ares ideas

Firstly, "Black Fleet".. excellent. Can't wait to see them! (I have a vision of Captain Jack Sparrow drunkenly stumbling into his Cent/X cockpit. LAUGHS) "Bring me that horizon!" Britannia could have a TeV-9 and a NAMI launcher to fire XM900s. The original function of Brits was as Worldship - kille...

Re: The Final Strike

Finished three days after I posted in a months - old thread? I'm glad I helped, but I didn't realize I helped that much. Congrats on completing the mod!

Re: Frontier Download Link

More: - The Smartcannon is (still) a very useful weapon, but Anvil missiles are more plentiful and more reliable - The shipping company increases both reward and difficulty as the player continues to win, and will lock him out after 3 failures. I'm sure it's possible to get past the 6k mission, but ...
