i forgot all steps to run it. its been a while, but it must be something you have to do

actually, i checked. I ran it in dosbox and the only thing is maybe you should run the setup first, after that it should be ok, though the insanely slow mouse is not a bug but a game feature, makes you enjoy the scenery...

privateer 2 is not availablke here, neither is privateer 1. Nor is the game actually a sequel or anything to this game, Nor did anyone ask for other comparable games. In short, your post borders on spam and advertizing. please dont do it again

The download link for this game seems to be broken.

That is due to our FTP being down, untill it is reset none of the downloads will work.

Never fear we are hunting down the person who let the monkeys out of the FTP and getting them back into it as fast as we can.

As a geek I need to adress two things to the review. Not the first inderwater simulation, first was Subwar 2050 by Particle Systems published by Microprose.
Secend, not simulation but shooter.
That said - this game is freaking awesome! One of my favorite games ever. They should makeremake of it with opion of being trader. I didn't play Aquanox yet but I'm looking forward to it. Althought I don't know if I will like it as much as original, it has great atmosphere and story that is hard to match.

That sentence is fully correct, Mr Geek, sir.

Archimedean Dynasty is the first game of the series, and the games are simulations.

And you shouldn't dare to declare things like "first underwater simulation". Geeks know that there could always be an older one.

Whoop! Validation for my efforts! I knew someone would eventually come along and try to find fault...

i loved the idea adn the atmosphere, but after only a few minutes, i resignated because i'm not used to steering anything with keyboard anymore.
so if anyone would make a muse-aiming-patch, i'd absolutely play it

Default Not comparable with Privateer

Although Archimedian Dynasty seems to have the same Game Engine or at least AI like Privateer it is absolutely not comparable.

The Career is totally linear und dull.

It seems, that you can choose your Equipment, but actually the advancements are totally equivalent to the career. If you don't spend your money in an exact way, you won't succeed the next missions unless they are much more difficult.

There are no optional missions or trading options so you can fulfil in order to upgrade your ship.

You cannot choose a Ship by your own.

The fights are also stupefying, just shooting hundred of rounds on a single target, no shields, no info on enemy dmg, just lower armor...

------------------------------------------------------------------------
These facts make Archimedian Dynasty a full Arcade game comparable to Xenon 2, which I consider much more sophisticated.

================================================== ======

A good to be named as predecessor of Privtaeer is Space Rogue, which also has a very nice Role play element and career as also a lot of freedom in trading and improvements of your Ship as also freedom of travel in the galaxy.
