just saying... But the fact that the game link does not work could pose a problem to validate your claim. :P

fix'd.
A wise Nar once said "A Nebulon under the
foot is worth two behind a plasma cannon,"
but the Nar are still waiting for their
mythical savior with green pee to fly their
coal-powered interstellar battlewagons to
glory against the Nebulons. Those are
Nebulons under Tfear's feet, by the way.
Seems nobody likes the Nebulons.

ok, tried it
Interesting game, reminds me of Stars! with some Star Control 2 spaceships combat.

Things I tried: travel to another star, I tried 3 times, and I always brake my engine, tried twice to fix my reactor by myself, resulting in crashes of the game, then I tried to Wait for help, and after paying for having my engine fixed by a nearby passing ship, I was attacked by pirates, at the point the screen started flashing (reverting to desktop) and I couldn't fight.

This looks like a promising game I would play.

On a side note, music is awesome :D

The game crashed every time you tried to repair your engine? That's really strange. Hmm... Are you sure the game was crashing? Right now the "game over" routine just exits to desktop, and if your engineering level is really low your crew can be killed trying to fix the engine. Combined with a little bug that sets the captain's HP to 0 at the beginning of the game, it might have been that you just kept killing your captain.

Odd how the game only seems to work on my computer, it almost never crashes for me.

I need to write a manual that describes the scripting language the game uses. I'll just include the manual that comes with it for now...

EDIT:

By the way, the /windowed command line switch might do something. I might make it the default option in fact.
