StarCon3?
« on: November 04, 2004, 05:32:57 am »

Does anyone know if a Windows version of StarCon3 exists or will ever be created?  I couldn't get my original version to run properly in Windows nor could I find a version that would.  If anyone knows, please let me know.  Thanks!

Mine worked fine with Win98.  XP is another story.

However, Star Control 3 not working is a blessing. Smiley

Heheh, yeah.  It's definitely not as good as StarCon 2, but I kinda wanna play it for nostalgic purposes.  When I originally played it, it was on Windows 98, but you're right, I'm on XP now and it doesn't want to work properly.  I need to build a "retro" machine so I can play some of my older games.  I miss playing Ultima 6, too.

Well - I bought the cd for SC3 - A waste of money, but I did not feel like downloading it.... Anyway - I used the XP adaption system and it worked fine. (it can pretend to be win 95,98,ME and have 256 colors and what not.) Its in every XP system - just go to help and type it in.....

I'll definitely check that out.  Now will the fact that I have an integrated sound card that isn't set to the IRQ and IO settings it's expecting be a problem or does XP take care of that?  Thanks!
