I've discovered a couple problems: an Androsynth comet can "Sell" dynamos to regenerate energy (unlimited comit), Slylandros gun will eventually jam, Some ships I imported like the Orion and the Aktun don't work, rouge squadren dies once you get them at rainbow, advanced defence system is WAY to expensive, No way to see your ship when cloaked, Syreen are a little wild with there special and I don't think weapons spawned from other weapons (mines, Chenjesu shards) do anything...

(Excuse the thread necromancy)

Does anyone happen to have the latest .exe that orz_tw had posted?  The version hosted by Gekko above has the 26-Oct-2008 executable, which is what I have, and this doesn't include all the new ship upgrades / tweaks / additions.
See the date on orz_tw's post below - I assume that this newer executable should be dated December 2008, so if anyone happens to have it and can host or send it somehow, it would be much appreciated.

update:
You can get 99% of the changes with just the new exe:

Er, sure. With a red hot poker. Or something.  Wink

Also if you have a newer version I could smack it up on the PNF as well, which would be handy. Or just link Gekko's mirror, whichever.

I emailed the guy a month ago, so just like the iphone guy, someone must have killed him too.

When I try and load the game, it comes up with an error:
"Critical Error!: Error switching to graphics mode
(1280x1024 @ 32 bit)
Resolution not supported"

What can I do to fix this?

The last time I played Star Control: TimeWarp, I, confident in my computer's modern capabilities, turned the graphics settings as high as possible and was given a similar error. Going back to the default settings fixed my problem. I recall that various non-default graphics configurations did not want to work with the game.

No, my computer is at default settings. Even when I turn it up or down It still doesn't work.

Unless i'm changing the wrong thing.

Can you access the game menu? From there, you should be able to access the "Preferences" menu. Once there, go to "Video Mode", change the resolution to 800x600, uncheck "Full-Screen", and click Ok. Then, go back to Preferences and select "Game & Rendering". Disable AA :Non-integer, AA :Blend, and AA :Alpha. Click Ok. After you've done this, try starting a new game. If it still doesn't work, mess around with the settings until it does. I apologize for being too vague.

If you can't even access the menu, I think there are command line switches you can use to change the resolution the game uses. I do not know what they are though, so relying on Google or waiting for someone else who does to show up is probably your best bet.
