Default 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.

Maybe it's in your Documents folder under Downloads? Have you tried playing it with dosbox?

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

Describe what did you do when trying to start the game and what happened.

The same place you downloaded it to.

Lightbulb 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
