    Planetary Fiction: Mercury

    This one is not related to the planetary series, but is a fun crowdfunding promo for a new space opera series (books and a card game ). There are two days left to get in on it for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI7ZLryA57E

  5. You can run it in Windows 10, but only with DOSBox 1) Download the latest version of DOSBox and extract into a folder https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Basic_Setup_and_Installation_of_DosBox 2) Download the ZIP archive version of BC3K209 and extract to a folder e.g. C:\ http://downloads.3000ad.com/builds/freeware/BC3K209FREE.ZIP 3) In Notepad or any text editor, edit BC3000AD.INI and change cdrom and home parameters to this, then save the file. cdrom=c:\ home=c:\ 4) Run DOSBox NOTE: ALL the following commands are all from within the DOSBox console session. Press ENTER after each console command. 5) Mount the folder from step #2 as a virtual drive e.g. mount c: c:\bc3000ad 6) Run the setup program by first changing to the drive above, then running the sound setup program. C: SETUP 7) Sound setup options: Audio: select AUTO-DETECT. If it shows anything different from SoundBlaster 16/AWE32 with PORT:220, DMA:1, IRQ:7, then you must set those manually. Music: select NO MIDI DEVICE Select OK to write the SETUP.CFG file and exit 8) Run the game as normal. You can add /n to bypass the intro, or press ESC to cancel intro playback BC3000AD /d1 =============================================================================== NOTES 1) Command line parameters /d1 = debug mode (if enabled in distribution. Also required to bypass CD check) /n = do not play intro /v? = display list of 2D video cards supported in native mode /v1 = play it safe and use VESA mode /vn = use specific 2D video card where n=card num displayed in /v? use /v1 for VESA mode if card not supported directly /g = run 3DFX Glide version (v1.07C or higher) 2) Any frontend UI option (e.g. New Game) will take a few seconds to load. This is normal due to emulation. You will experience the same delay when trying to access any Frontend UI systems (Logistix, Tactical etc), including the save/restore game options. 3) You can run the game in a window or full screen using DOSBox. 4) You can use a DOSBox frontend such as Dfend Reloaded which gives you better setup options and more control over the DOSBox config. You can download it from here http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/

    4th Quarter Insugent Fleet Recall

    Still around boss. Just waiting on X4 to come
  8. Gentlemen! Another quarter has swiftly passed and it's time again for a Recall! Nothing has changed as of yet with Line of Defense. As far as I know, it's still be ported to a new engine. I'm patiently awaiting this to be completed! :) There's been a lot of love given to Universal Combat and the DLC over the past few months. If you've been away from it for a while, I encourage you to check out what has changed or even just read the Changelog. Here's the link in case you don't have it handy: https://steamcommunity.com/app/345580/allnews/ Other than that, it's just smooth sailing! See you all next quarter! -Sho

    3rd Quarter 2018 Insurgent Fleet Recall

    Gotcha, canshow! :)
  19. Gentlemen: I've nothing to really report since the last Fleet Muster. The only thing that comes to mind is that LoD is still being ported over to the engine. I'm not exactly sure when it will be complete, but we all know the saying. It ain't done until it's done! :) Anyways, with that said, please report in! -Sho

    Just another caveat here: be careful which exchanges you use. Some are better that others. Also, if you are not currently trading an asset, DO NOT store those assets on exchanges!! Store them on either a paper wallet, a desktop software wallet, or a hard (cold) wallet. A hard wallet is a USB device that stores crypto coins offline!

    I personally wouldn't advise Coinbase.com as a gateway to Fiat/Crypto conversion site. I've had too many issues with Coinbase, and I have started using Gemini. That being said, it all still really new, so opinions vary. Canshow - good hearing from you! Long time no chat! I will definitely check out that discord server. I trade cryptos daily, but I also have a traditional job, and I'm hoping to move out of that into cryptos full time.

    Thanks, I'm trying to make them good enough to somehow go viral, but no such luck so far.
