Gravis Ultrasound support

Hm, yet another game that sounds better with Gravis Ultrasound emulation (in DOSBox). More natural sounds with smoother transition between the notes. Previous game I discovered with this trick was recent Reunion which also uses Tracked Music. Now I wonder about other such games

Anyways, to cut to the chase:
change this line in your .conf:
Code:
gus=true
and start the game with
Code:
STARCON2 /S:GRAVIS
Not sure if that would work in Abandonia's package case because it loads .COM first, which then loads the .EXE (reckon to bypass the most annoying copy protection in history). I use the crack from romulus server which allows separate .EXE run, and Gravis

The Fifth Horseman It sounds like you're trying to install and run this game on Windows. It's a DOS game, and requires DOSBox to run: http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?t=14406

Best Game Ever

I spent tons of my free time as a 12 year old going through and making my own hint book for StarCon, listed every rainbow world, the best planets for resources and aliens, and all the major items. I did the same for StarCon 3 when it came out, but it was never as fun as SC2. For anyone who wants a tip, you should focus on tech from the melonorme as much as possible...once you use their tech to upgrade your Flagship, it is unstoppable.

Edited Ships

Reading these posts reminded me of something I did in college years ago. I've spent years and years playing this game and I still love it. As an amateur computer programmer, I like to tinker with files just for fun. Using a Hex editor, I've located some of the key spots where data for the Starcon ships are and I've been able to modify them. Included in these files is a ship called Zardz. It's basically a Pkunk, but instead of doing one point of damage per shot, it does 6 and has an instantaneous energy recharge rate. I've beaten the Su-matra, the most difficult ship in the game, in about 20 secs. with 1 Zardz ship. Download them and place them in your Starcontrol 2 directory. They don't overwrite any of the existing ships, they just become new ships you can choose when you play SuperMelee. They appear just like the other ships do-they look exactly the same, but have awesome attributes.

You can download them here: http://www.filedropper.com/superships

PS. If you want to use these ships in the role-playing game, you have to copy the modified ship file over the original ship file--Make a backup of the original first!!!

Last time I played this game, must have been 15 years ago, but I think I will never forget

Such an awesome, awesome game.
