Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Thanks Troglodyte, good to be here. I've actually skimmed through a bunch of your AI controlled ship v ship scenarios, and was quite entertained. Learned some stuff too. I’ll likely go through this thread in full when I’ve got some time. It would be quite the cruel game implementation to have a devi...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I'm a little confused, to be honest.
This thread was opened in 2015 by Troglodyte. Is he still not finished?
I guess if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.

Re: Starflight is making a come-back

Cool! I'll have to keep an eye on this. I never played it myself either, but I found out about in the last year or so. Watched some game play, and I like the concept. I think I would have a hard time actually playing the game now, given the age of it. Pretty sure you can get it on GOG. I might give ...

Re: I remember that I don't remember...

Well that's (sorta) disappointing. I was hoping to try to use some file recovery tools on my original Star Control II 3.5" disks. After several weeks of (slowly) cleaning and searching, I've come to the realization that I must have disposed of my disk drives the last time I moved because "why would ...

Re: Sequels strife

Thanks Elestan. That clears things up a lot for me. I think I've got a much better understanding of this process now. However, this also helps to reaffirm that I do not wish to be a lawyer. It seems to me that Summary Judgment should have very interesting results in this case. There appear to be a l...

Re: Sequels strife

Thanks Elestan, helpful as usual. I could have (and may have) read that information five times and not retained it. ...so that the Judge can rule on them in November. After that, there's a mandatory settlement negotiation prior to starting the final preparations for trial. So what exactly does “Summ...

Re: Sequels strife

What happens in October? Or was that an arbitrary date? (And why does this feel like a pun?)

Re: Childrens' play log

Wow, this is pretty epic. It’s really cool to see how children play this game. I think I must have been about 12 myself when I first played it. Plenty of poor decisions* there! Of course I already had experience with SC1 for melee. (*I searched nearly every star in the radius of 200 units to find th...

Re: I remember that I don't remember...

I thought maybe it was just a joke, but the production timelines do match. And I guess it actually was discussed way back then. The things you never knew!

Re: I remember that I don't remember...

First off, thanks for the fast replies. I was expecting this to sit for a few days. Secondly, thanks for the research. That was surprisingly enlightening. I’m a software developer myself, so I can relate to ”design choices taking too much time/effort” (It’s a perpetual battle for me). When it comes ...
