The Pages of Now and Forever (http://www.classicgaming.com/starcontrol/) posted news of an amazing commercial that Danny Santos (http://www.dannysantos.net/l) made for the re-release.  You can download them in two formats:

DivX (http://www.fileplanet.com/dl/dl.asp?/classicgaming/starcontrol/urquanmasters/sc2-com-avi.zip)

Quicktime (http://www.fileplanet.com/dl/dl.asp?/classicgaming/starcontrol/urquanmasters/sc2-com-mov.zip)

That trailer is Outstanding! :)

It gave me goose bumps!

Is that going to be the intro for the game?

Nope, it's just some other nice fan-made stuff.. we are going to use original 3DO / PC version intro.

That fan trailer was pretty cool, I agree.  But hey, is the port really gonna need a lot of advertising ?  All my friends have already heard about it.  

Repeatedly ;-)

Oh.  my.  god.

I can't count the number of times I've considered attempting a starcon2 port myself - to think that a group of people are seriously going to do it almost makes up for the fact that my home state just sold its soul to the devil.  I mean the republicans.

You'd better believe I'll be monitoring sourceforge .. maybe I can even toss my coder's hat in the ring to boot.

Very nice hype movie :)

I am glad you are using the 3DO intro etc, all of them rock :) I like the final movie - you really get a sense of scale with the ships :)

I'm impressed. Resurrecting a thread this old is a mean feat. I mean, it was probably rotting and covered with 3 feet of dirt at this point.

Haha, I got all excited when I read this, and yes, the links are dead. I'm with you, defiant.

I *had* it, yes... But since that was 2002, I deleted it ever since..

It was a really superb nicely done trailer, though. I remember that I repeatadly watched it and it was still ubergreat... Like any trailer/intro should actually be.. One where you don't hit the space/escape key when the game starts, because that intro is just damn badass....

Hey, I hadn't seen that before! Thanks for the rez.

But it's... well, not very contentful as trailers go. And a little Mars, anyone?

That's the way I like trailers.  Unfortunately, it's not a good trailer for the newbies;  creates an expectation of a 3D game...  It's more of a nostalgic teaser.  Great Mark I model though.

my computer wont dignify those files with a response, all it does is basically make my computer spaz out, see i told ya updating my computer wasnt good, avi and mov files worked perfectly before i did...


first i try to play in WMP and i get the usual stupid response 'this program has generated an error'
same thing with divx player except 'explorer' closed on me before that particular error took place...

meh, at least i got to hear most of it

You've probably got one or more faulty codecs. You need to uninstall them. Rough instructions to help you out:

I guess you've probably got FFdshow installed somewhere in your system. If you haven't install it! (it's part of the Matroska codec pack, for example). Also install the G-Spot codec information app. Then run G-Spot on the .avi-file and do a render to see what it uses to render the file. Find this rendering codec in FFdshow and disable it or replace it. Repeat until it works.
