HI !
I also think that MOM is the best game ever exists. I'm a professional software developer, and I'm deveoping a very similar game on the web (It will be free to play). If anyone interested on testing, write me a mail. gery@c2.hu You can see my previous work here: http://www.visualchat.hu

There is any relation between Civ 2 and MoM? They look to similar.

Actually, there's a relation between Civilzation 1 and Master of Magic, as MoM was made on example of Civilization 1. Civilization 2 came later, after MoM

True: MoM appeared in 1995, and Civ 2 in 1996. One of the worst faults of "Wild Bill" Steadley, who founded and ran Microprose for a number of years, was his inability to understand the value and followup titles--series. The original Civ appeared in 1991, became a huge hit, and didn't capitalize on this with a followup until after Wild Bill had left the company.

M&M was an incredible title. Too bad the AI is so poor!

I started playing this last night, and got so hooked I didn't sleep until 6 am. It took me ages to figre even the basics out mind you, but it was mad good fun.

Thing is, I can't get sound working for the life of me. But i'm just wondering are the sounds worth getting? Anyway, if anyone has any idea how I can get sound then err, please let me know >_> I'm using a Realtrek AC97 audio if it matters.

Sound is not increadably important but it does add a little. What are you using to run MoM? DOSBox? If you let us know we can help you further.

There's a conflict in MoM when you set both the music and sound to Soundblaster Pro. Set music to General Midi, adress 330, IRQ 7, and sound to Sound Blaster Pro (Later) with adress 220, IRQ 7 and DRQ 1. Then I guess it should work

I use Soundblaster (orig.) for both music and sound and it works fine.

Ok, here is a little trick if using DOSBox properly seems hard. Once you have downloaded DOSBox you should get a dosbox.exe file, simply drag the Orion.exe onto the dosbox.exe then the game will load up fine and you can dominate star systems with glee, saved games and everything work fine as well so you can still save and load.

This technique works for a number of games, however when using it, I believe that DOSBox commands do not work such as changing cycle speed, screenshots etc...
