Re: I know everything about Star Control

I know everything about Star Control. Here are some FACTS about the game. * The first ship you pilot when you start playing Star Control is called the "Spathi Eluder". To steal it, you have to find it while it's parked in the lot, walk by the driver's side door and press "X" (or Square if you're pl...

Re: I just saw something...

It might just be my imagination, but I think I just saw the text "help us" in the split-second glitch-of-view that appears when you start UQM-HD in fullscreen. Or maybe it was "hurry" or something. It's not easy to get a good look at it when you only have a fraction of a second, not to mention that...

Re: [WIP] Star Control 1 remake

Thanks Dragon, I am trying to learn programming. But even with an "easy" language (Ruby) I'm finding it quite a challenge to wrap my head around. I'm starting with Pong following a tutorial. If you were to switch this project over to Ruby, by the time you were done, I might be skilled enough to help...

Re: [WIP] Star Control 1 remake

Dragon,

You've probably already said this, but what language is Star Control 1 written in? I think I heard that SC2 is in C.

Re: Project 6014 Demo 0.2.1 released!

I just want to give a shout out to the Project 6014 guys. I am just as excited about Project 6014 as I am about Stardock's reboot. Maybe even more so. Go for it!

Re: Tell us about your retro video game memories

Don't even get me started on "retro" gaming, I'll put it this way, I own an original Atari and an Intellivision, not to mention I have a dos computer under my desk and only recently recycled my original IBM PS2 (weeee no hard drives!) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: And on with my point of posting.. http://en....

Re: Development to Begin This Fall on New Star Control Game

You know, this type of first-person could work - lander sequences (in the vehicle) and ruins exploration (on foot) but I think that it would require WAY too much investment, like having to make 3 totally distinct games in 1; engine, graphics and UI different for each... You may be right, but I was ...

Re: Development to Begin This Fall on New Star Control Game

No. I'm not against genre change to include shooting, if it was in the vein of Fallout2 or 1 for example. Can't really imagine it now, but I think I'd give it a try. Not as a first-person-view game, though. This brings me to another, related topic. How far should Stardock go in changing things to a...
