I think there are several "pre-made" themes available.  I'll be sure to install some soon.  I'll also bring back the old board colors, because if anything, I like those.  Thanks for your patience.

Oh, and I'm glad to see so many people stayed around after several weeks of downtime!  ;)

I've added some "themes" really quickly.  Several "light" and several "dark" themes I could quickly find for SMF.  If you can find more, post here and I'll install them.

I REALLY like the Mercury one!

How do you change your "theme"?  Goto your "profile" via the profile button located across the top of the forum.

http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~starcontrol/forum/index.php?action=profile

Under the "Modify Profile" on the left, click "Look and Layout Preferences".

Then, click "change" next to "Current Theme:" on that page.

You can preview the themes and choose a new one there.

As I said, help out by finding more themes and I'll install them!

"Me too" post: thanks so much, Chad, for finding the time to get the forums back up.  Looks great, and all the settings seem to have survived.  Great job!

Hi, Chad!  Nice to have you back!

Wow... Long time away.  Thought I might just drop in and say, "Hello," and let you know I still love this game and still watch the site every now and again.

Wow it took me a month to realize this site(namely the Discussion Board) is back online, must be getting lazy. Anyway I'll keeping things interesting here for some time(Like a soap opera). It's been awhile so the insanity will come back gradually.

Hey..am new to the site. Need to know if anyone has a complete listing of co-ordinates for the hyperspace map - SC2: The Ur-Quan masters. or at least a high res scan that could be sent my way. Live in back-water Africa and my original copy was burnt to cinders in possibly one of the worst fires I've ever seem. Trying to find anything like that here is a nightmare!!! Not having any luck on the web either. Any help appreciated and can be sent to info@fseng.co.za

Many thanks,
Angemon

Vikes, mano... You came to the right place...

http://www.classicgaming.com/starcontrol/ - The Pages of Now and Forever (All hail the mighty Chad, Master of Univereses, Owner of Precursor Technologies unbeknownest to man, Supreme Ruler and so on and so on)

I don't remember seeing the old Coordinates up there but There is the Ur-Quan Masters project which is a free windows-based version of Starcon 2 (With Everything in Xept for the Intro and Outro - But the funny end credits does exist)....

Also, you can find accurate maps reciting important systems, and practically any sort of useful info you'll ever need (Xept how to get the bloody Mycon to make sense)

Rogue is in da house
Yes, it may seem impossible to evade shots with a Mmrnhrmm X-form but I can do it

Killing a Shofixti Scout with an Umgah Drone is not impossible....you just have to fight it 70 times!

Little dogs bark. Big dogs don't. It's cuz big dogs know they can tear you apart and thus don't need to bark...

Had to re-register, but I'm still here!  I'm the one who gave the heads-up about the event in L.A. with Bill Nye the Science Guy & Jill Tarter of SETI about two years ago, and YES we played the SC2 hyperspace music during intermission!  Here's a link to some photos from the event: http://homepage.mac.com/uniace/PhotoAlbum21.html

Chad, I'm also the one who let you know about the John Berkey poster that came with the Mac version of SC3.  Did you ever get your hands on that?

Well, I'm glad to see the site's back in action, as I do still occasionally check in.  Still the greatest website about the greatest game EVER!

Hi all! I'm new to the forum, but I have been going to The Pages of Now and Forever for the last couple years.  I thought it would be fun to get involved.  Thanks for all you do for us die-hard star-control fans Chad!
