Re: What's the best way to play SC1? Or, sound fix for GOG v

Command line parameters would come immediately after starcon.exe, separated by a space on the same line. For example, from Krulle's description:

starcon.exe /S:adlib

That should instruct the game to start using the adlib sound settings.

Hope this helps you get it working better.

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

Just so you know, the split spheres each have their own alignment, rebels or loyalists. Since they overlap pretty closely, this usually means a pretty mixed bag across most of Yehat space (you unlucky duck, you, only finding loyalists so far). However, the edges on either side are composed of only o...

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

But good of you to not sit around. Wouldn't help you, and the original game also doesn't want players to sit out single storylines, but juggle the events. This, as always, is very true. It's also fair to say that some things (like, say, the overthrow of a regime that has been in power for millennia...

Better for whom, I wonder? Though I suppose at the end of the day, you can always say "Not the Ur-Quan" and call it a positive.

Re: Sequels strife

My, how remarkably civil that all was. Stark contrast to the current situation.

I love how, through all the back and forth, Paul made sure to protect UQMs right to exist and continue producing content.

Re: Sequels strife

Not just SC3, this suit is trying to declare all of the Star Control IP as property of Accolade, and by extension, Stardock after the twisting maze of acquisitions and sales. That's what the claims of Fred and Paul not being the actual creators of the games are all about. If the court agrees, every ...

Re: Sequels strife

This still feels like it's all about money to me. While the whole "goodwill and fame" thing definitely seems to point to the amount of hype Ghosts generated here in our little community with just a nebulous announcement, the amount of claims and the demands for damages (treble damages is no joke if ...

And that eliminates any doubt in my mind. Fred, Paul, may your lawyers knock 'em dead, and godspeed.

Re: The Chmmr Avatar

It is most obvious on those rare occasions when an Avatar gets involved in one of those super ricochets. The ship ends up repulsing away so fast that the Zapsats can end up trailing behind it by half a fully zoomed out screen, which is pretty crazy to watch. They also end up in a very long, thin ova...
