I've already posted this on the PNF boards, but I thought there might be some programmers here that could give me their opinions on my project.  You should probably check out the readme first...

It worked the first time I opened it. Every other time it doesnt work. It automatically minimizes when I open it.
I tried redownloading but it still doesnt work.

That's...odd.  It doesn't save any config data, so nothing should have changed.  Maybe try rebooting your computer.  Did you change any of the config files?  What kind of computer are you running, operating system, graphics card, etc...

Rebooting does the trick. I use windows xp, and I would be happy to tell you my graphics card if you could tell me how I could find out. I skimmed quickly through my control pannels but didnt find anything.

    When you say cargo are you talking about resources that you mined?  Resources are automatically sold when you land at your starbase.  You don't have to do anything.  Just come to a stop over the landing pad at the starbase (the white cross thing).  You can buy mine constructors at the starbase Market.  They are pretty expensive so don't get blown up.  Oh, and they are fairly heavy...a loaded down ship isn't very effective in combat.
   You can buy ships and equip new weapons at the starbase.  Some weapons and ships have mine requirements that must be met...for instance, in order to build the Heavy Cruiser you have to have 1 titanium, 1 hydrogen, and 1 crystal mine.  After you have those you can buy heavy cruisers.  You should read the readme.txt if you haven't.

THe minable asteroids show up as orange on your radar rather than blue.  They have yellow glowing veins on them.  In order to set up a mine:
a) Purchase a mine at the Market in the starbase
b) Target the planet you want to mine with the P key.
c) Press the B key to scan the planet, and bring up the action menu.
d) If the scan results show that the planet has something you want to mine, select "Construct Mine" from the menu.  Bam, you've got your mine.

As a side note you can capture enemy cargo vessels with the B key as well.  When a cargo vessel is damaged enough the targeting cusor (if the vessel is targeted) will flash.  Press B and select capture ship.  The ship is now yours.  Just get it back to your base in one peice, and you will get a ton of credits for the resources in it's hold.

Lastly, you can't save the game in this version...not till next time. Sad

i like it im already addicted  Smiley Smiley

awaiting next version because the lack of a save game is aggravating, plus i cant find hydrogen anywhere....

hijacking ur-quan shipments is fun... but can be dangerous... i got killed by a scout comming back home with 2 full transports Sad

more upgrades would be awsome too...

how do i expand my bases? and what does the population on planets do for me?

also faster hyperspace travel is a must... at least alittle faster...

Oh man, you've got to get the hydrogen mine!  You're missing the best part!  Check out the Alusre system...it's a hostile system, but one of the planets has hydrogen.  I usually like to run out there at the very beginning and plant a mine.  Then I get a hydrogen and crystal, capture a cargo fleet.  Then I pick up a couple of heavy cruisers and attack an enemy base.  The heavy cruisers should look...familiar.   Wink

Also, I forgot to mention that you can't build mines outside the white circle centered on your starbase (on the starmap).

Yeah, the gravity on the sun is a bit extreme at times, in fact, it's downright annoying.

I'd suggest toning it down or removing it entirely. I've already had to restart five times just because of that damn gravity/sun mixture destroying me as I try in vain to fly away from the damn landing pad.
