Sound in SC1 in DOSBox is problematic for several reasons:

Thank you! This is prob what I was missing.

The Genesis version is notorious for being completely unoptimized (by TFB's own admission, since they weren't given the time to do so before it was rushed out the door by Accolade) and running very slowly. I suppose you could consider that a major gameplay difference, if speed is important to you.

This is true, but since it's for VS play, speed was never a problem.

Devastatingly loud and fierce Ur-Quan fusion blasts firing and making explosive impact noises to unnerve the opponent? That's essential. "Dings" are not acceptable.

I remember chasing down more agile opponents with a Ur-Quan Dreadnaught, and any time I had a spare moment or could not catch up, I would hammer the hell out of the planet. It just sounds so brutal it can make your opponent wince and eventually cause a bit of anxiety when they do engage.

think a few people were interested in making a SC1 mod for UQM, don't think they've gotten anywhere. You can get the original SC1 on GOG.com though: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/star_control_1_2

Any reason to play that over the Genesis ROM of SC1?

Last I knew PC SC1 had terrible bings and dings for sound.

Damn I love me some SC2. Thank you to all the crew at Ur-Quan Masters for this project.

I still have the box from my old PC version.

Question: How impossible would it be to incorporate Star Control 1 campaign mode?
I really miss the 2 player strategy and building.

I know, another noob asking for unreasonable things when you already provide miracles.
But hey, you pamper us, only natural we get spoiled.
