Re: Mouse Movement Issues

Thanks for the feedback, Gherrick. I think we need to re-open this game and refresh it for 2014 to address all of the silly issues like mouse and CPU usage and other issues reported. It's a shame after thousands of hours invested to have silly little problems wreck someone's enjoyment of the game. :(

Re: Starflight 1 & 2?

Just curious, NatureDruid, how far did you get into the game?

Re: game very slow

Hi Runecube. I don't stop by here often so forgive the way-out of date reply. I was one of the developers of the engine and have no idea why the game would wig out like that on some PCs and not others. We tested it on at least 20 different PCs, running Windows XP, Vista, 7, all different configurati...

Re: game fails to initialize, wont run?

Hi Marcusrm. I was one of the developers of the game. It is possible to modify the game so it will run at any resolution with scaling, if we were to dig into the sources again (not the best option). Another way to get around the problem is to run it in a window. I don't recall if we had a working op...

Re: Questions, problems, and comments

Hello. I can respond to some of your questions about the gameplay. First, let me correct a misconception--the game is 100% finished. This is not an unfinished game with broken features; it's done, and we just need to make a game manual. Understanding how to play, what assumptions were made on the de...

Re: How would you change Beta 5's continuum fluxes?

The original design called for random fluxes each time you play the game to make it more interesting, but we ran into a problem with generating the random numbers across different platforms (Linux, Mac), which in retrospect should have just been ignored since no one plays the game on those systems. ...

Re: A note about the missions in the game...

There were quite a few "collect N lifeforms/minerals" type quests, but they were meant to help the player get out and begin exploring the galaxy. There were just too many. I think 10 is a good number. You pretty much have to do these initial quests to complete the game. I'm really eager to see it wi...

Re: BETA 5 Download

Ah, I see we were both thinking about the game this week, Steve, since I just posted a huge note in the Beta 5 board. Probably you have links here that I didn't know about. Check out that post, I won't repeat here. In a nutshell, we have a Google Site ready to be filled in, and I'm redirecting starf...

First of all, I am sorry for being MIA for so long. I never gave up on TLC, it's just that real life gets in the way and I've been ridiculously busy since last summer when we actually finished beta 5. Every so often I have a free afternoon and stumble upon an email or something that leads me to the ...

Beta 5

Hi. I'm one of the developers. Beta 5 will be released soon. This has been such a long delay... I don't even remember when beta 4 came out, sometime in late 2009? Well we were kind of "done" at that point, but this game has been nagging at me for a long time, not satisfied with it being still somewh...
