Boy I haven't been on a while, dang college.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season, and didn't wake up somewhere without their pants on. Unless that's how you determine if it was a fun party that is.

Meh, I have to admit I use my Spathi Eluder I made for a mod for this game a lot. I've definately noticed one thing, the manuverability I put in for the BUTT launcher really screws you over if you use frag missiles with it, sorry.. On the other hand with the faster in-game ships I've managed to lear...

I've usually found the fast-fire laser cannon a decent weapon for the beginning game. However, the best item I've ever found in the first 2 areas was a shuriken.. unfortunately its power consumption had me running off to the gas stations a lot. I'd recommend a fast-fire weapon starting out personall...

I had something strange happen to me the second I got the mission to destroy him, suddenly arco starts flying towards me from the opposite end of the system and blasts me to hell.

I have to say, while it was a bit entertaining, I'd love to know what caused it.

You must have a heck of a monitor then, because I turned all my brightness settings up and I still didn't see any scanlines in dockscreenbackground2.bmp until I opened it up in mspaint and zoomed in 600%. But I still can't see any hexagons no matter how low or high the brightness settings are, nor h...

Well it works in the newest version. So I guess that's solved.

I for one cannot wait to bug the new planetary overlords! Although I have to admit, at this point everything seems to remind me of Star Control 2... curse you Fwiffo! Although I suppose it's better than everything reminding me of cabbage. Would there be something like a scanner that allows you to lo...

If we are talking 1.0 here I'm in favor of multiple bands of pirates, not just the Charon pirates, maybe some black market gangs as well. Ideally you would be able to interact with the different groups, run missions, set them up against each other, make them allies like the Huari, etc. Afterall just...

No, after I read about the save file corruption I decided to wait until he put out the fixed version.

192 mb of ram and before I let windows manage the swap file

Now I have it set up for the swap file to be at least 200mb and for the computer to use the ram before the swap file.

Of course the extension still doesn't work, so I am going to quit trying to get it working.

I tried setting the size of my swap file, it actually made the game run worse, random freezes, sudden slowdowns and speedups. I never had a problem like that before I tried changing the virtual memory settings.

Ok, I found out why it's not going into the loop, the first section is reporting nil always when I use "t:asteroid", but it works when I use "t:populated". I've tested it far from asteroids, near them, near floating ore newly blasted from the asteroid, and still it returns nil. So, is there any way ...

Memory shouldn't be a problem, I've had only one other problem with an extension and that was with System26. I'm using win98se, and as i said I've only had one problem extension before. 4. In the second line, instead of "t:asteroid" try "t:populated" and see if it detects a station with ore in it (s...
