Re: Cyberstorm series - discussion

DPX is the Metaltech fan around here. I have not looked at it, but would assume that it requires a server side component for multiplayer. While some of the Metaltech multiplayer servers have been REed, I'm not sure if anyone has done the Cyberstorm server or not.

Re: Hunter Hunted - "internal game error"

You are missing the second main resource file. Check your CD for any scratches or abrasions that may be making it hard to read the disc. You can try manually copying RESOURCE.002 from the "Hunter" folder on the CD into the installed directory.

I'd rather pay once up front and never have to deal with micro-transactions or ads, but apparently I'm in the minority there.
Then I must be in the same minority.

Re: Hunter Hunted - "internal game error"

I have not tested it on anything later than Win7. Run the diagnostic tool and attach the log here and I'll take a look.

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

No, it works pretty well in DOSBox these days. In fact I have an installer for it in the Non-Sierra Installers and Patches thread. http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3925

And I still want to play through A Final Unity.
I am a bit surprised that you have never played it, given that it is TNG turned into an adventure game.

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Regardless, it still doesn't address the dumb decision to make Kirk the captain of a heavy cruiser given his inexperience and previously-held low rank. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised when there are TV shows where 24 year-olds hold multiple PhDs and are considered the "experts in their field,"...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

To make matters worse, in Star Trek (every show and film, regardless of which universe it's in) no one's the captain of a ship unless they literally hold the rank of captain, which is NOT how it's done in ANY real world navy, especially the US Navy which is what Starfleet was initially based on. No...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

A three parter; The Forge , Awakening , and Kir'Shara . They had drifted from the teachings of Surak. The last episode of the three was about the Kir'Shara, a device that contained the writings of Surak, which allowed Vulcans to reembrace his logic again, which also had the effect of transforming th...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Enterprise could have been so much more if they had kept it grounded within established Trek, but as is, it was at least it was not part of the Jar Jar timeline.

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

It may have been a while since you have seen Balance of Terror . It was just one man that questioned Spock's motives. He was a bridge officer that had a deep, blinding hatred of the Romulans because of the price his family had to pay back during the Romulan war. Then again, very little in TOS resemb...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

The two are not mutually exclusive. Both phases of the Romulans would have required emotions and a not so high priority on logic. It is obvious that ambition is prominent as early as Balance of Terror (S1-E14). The Vulcan/Romulan split was suggested in Balance of Terror with the very first view of a...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

A lot of the fans have complained about the swapping of roles of the two species, but it is not quite a swap. While the Klingons became more honor bound and less manipulative and underhanded, the transition of the Romulans is more logical. They were originally based on Roman with its military cultur...
