I GOT IT....I GOT ITTTTT.
STAR CONTROL 1 from ACCOLADE
It appears to have been crxxked too !!!

And you know what's beautiful ?
It even runs in WinXP in DOS Window with Win95 Compatibility !!!    With sound too !

It has sound?  And that's a good thing?  If memory serves, the sound in the PC version of starcon was for the AdLib sound board, i.e., it was TERRIBLE.  Then again, I played the Genesis version first, so I got spoiled by the "War of the Worlds" sound effects when the Ur-Quan fired it's fusion blaster; but the cowbell sound when the losing ship explodes was really too much by anyone's standards..  Smiley

One of my favourite memories from my childhood was pooling up the money with my friends to buy Star Control (none of us could afford it on our own, you see), then hand-drawing copies of the "Professor Zorg's Translator Wheel" thingy so that we could all bring a copy home.  I think it was the only piece of software I ever legitimately purchased when I was a kid..

Oh, they sure did.  The Arilou Skiff went from "most underrated ship in the game" to "dogmeat" with that little "fix".  Smiley


Seems to me asteroids still kill em though.  Must have been trained in the same correspondance course used to educate Imperial Tie Fighter pilots.

I think that fighters will _try_ to avoid dying by hitting the planet but i'm pretty sure that occasionally they get wasted by it.

I think they can also be killed by collisions with other ships as well, scream through a cloud of fighters at high speed and i'm pretty sure some will croak.

Orz marines are much tougher.
