  5. It's disheartening to watch this incompetent game designer wasting so many resources and harming the crowfunding concept. This will probably enter history in the respective fields as one of the worst flops ever. Derek, you were right from day one. Forbes report

    Elite Dangerous

    It seems to me quite interesting even now.

    Slot games

    Anyone here is interested in gambling. At least just for the sake of interest, and not because of the money? Are there any secrets how to win in slot games? I try to play casino games online NZ now, sometimes get it, sometimes not. But it seems to me all this is an accident. What do you think?

    Paticipation in closed BETA

    Hi, Unfortunately we don't need any additional people atm; only those who were already in the list and own the game. This will change in the very near future; and if so, a post will be made on the game's official Steam forum news section. Thanks!

    What are your favorite movies of all time?

    Star Wars is my all-time favorites. I can watch it from MegahFilmesHD (apknite) almost every weekend without getting bored
  10. Greeting, Gents! I've really got nothing to report for this quarter other than the SC working on "upgrading" Universal Combat. Please report on! -Sho
  11. Hi, I am 10+ years embedded software developer from europe and would like to participate on closed beta. I believe my feedback can be valueable for a project. Is there any opportunity to do this ? Thanks!

    Planetary Fiction: Mercury

    Thanks, and I did, on a micro budget, too. The music is public domain, though I added some additional bass drops and effects in appropriate places. I've built up a very large library of stock effects, footage and images that I tapped, added to some 3d modelling in three different applications (blender, daz studio, hitfilm pro). The voice actor doing the audiobook version supplied the voiceover, the author supplied a couple of images from shutterstock, and I blended in some template animations from viddyoze, a model and couple of animations from mixamo and a bunch of images from pixabay and footagecrate. My most complex video to date. The client is very happy with this one.

    You did this by yourself, Ben? That's pretty amazing!

    Another one unrelated to the planetary series, but went on sale today (used a ton of different tools and libraries in this one, my first video since getting a dedicated rendering rig (a second-hand workstation):

    Windows antivirus

    Avast is a mediocre option, but if you don't want to spend money and as long as you aren't downloading anything questionable you should be ok. Really the only thing that matters is adblock, No Coin (web extension which prevents websites from using your browser to mine cryptocurrencies), a functioning web screener from your antivirus, and some common sense. My concern with free services is that they have limited coverage, and avast is known to be a resource hog. My own pick is malwarebytes paired with windows defender. I haven't had any problems... then again, I have not downloaded torrents from sketchy sources in several years now. (

    Windows antivirus

    I've heard of Avast...never used it though. I personally have been using AVG for years now.
  17. I use Windows 10 now. I haven't come across viruses for a long time. It is necessary to protect the system well and update it in a timely manner. After watching avast premium review I thought to choose. Do you think Avast is a good antivirus? What do you think?

    1st Quarter 2019 Insurgent Fleet Recall

    Thanks, Canshow!

    Who likes Bitcoin?

    Bitcoin is becoming more popular. This can be seen in the growth of its price. Yes, the price varies greatly, but this does not make it less attractive for investment. What is interesting, there is even a Bitcoin casino, here https://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/bitcoin-casinos-opening-doors-for-online-gambling-distributes you can see what it is. As for me it is no less interesting. And for me it is clear why many people choose such a casino.
  20. Greetings Gentlemen! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years holiday! It is hard to believe that 2018 is over just like that. Over the year we did have a quite a few updates to Universal Combat Collector's Edition with more to come this year. My hat is off to Derek for taking the time to do it! It's appreciated. That said, for any Insurgent Fleet members still out there, please report in! -Sho

    Line of Defense State of Play

    A new LOD Dev Status Update is up. You can read it here: http://lodgame.com/18-12-05-state-of-play/
  22. Ben Zwycky

    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
  23. 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/

    Thanks, canshow! Nothing wrong with waiting around for X4! :)

    4th Quarter 2018 Insurgent Fleet Recall

    Still around boss. Just waiting on X4 to come
  26. 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
