  1. I was patrolling around the Earthstar Starstation, in my Nightstar Heavy Carrier, when a Val/Raider Solnar Heavy Cruiser comes in. I figure let's go take it out. After a few minutes of action and with the help of a couple of fighters from Earthstar its History. Well just as this finishes a BC MKII raider HJ into the region also. I launch all 4 fighters and the MKII launched fighters and again with the help of some fighters from Earthstar, we sent the raider to its death. My fighter jocks, interesting enough took out all 4 of his fighters. Not bad, 1st combat mission, and 4 kills. I thought enough of this, and HJ over to Polaris Star system. I was enroute to Polaris-2 when the TAC Officer said, "There's something out there"! Then I saw the flash across my screen which told me I had a cloaked Carrier out there. Well I was just done from rearming and recharging the fighters up to full capacity when I was alerted, "We have intruders on board"! Knowing that my Combat Officer is a goober, I checked the Perscan and found 6 intruders. Before I could do anything, I hear Mid-turret Laser array is damaged. Still no ship had decloaked, therefore the intruders are taking out systems. As that happens a Val/Raider BC MKIII decloaks. Surley enough its target was me. Next I hear marines engaged in combat on Deck 2 and 3. Well I said enough of this! Changed direction to Velari Starstation. Sent 10 marines out searching for the intruders, and before I could launch fighters, Mid-turret laser is destroyed. Well by this time the MKII was upon me with her fighters also. Well better launch all fighters, when to my surprise no fighters could be launched. It seems the intruders made it to the flight deck! All 4 fighters had 10 to 20 percent damage, 1 Fpilot was dead and the other 3 were injured. Well I cut launch power quickly seeing this and said it don't look good. No fighter protection, intruders running amok on the ship, and a MKIII coming in for the kill. Well at this point in the nick of time I was close enough to Velari starstation to be under there protection. I took some laser and missile damage and was able to dock with Velari. This put the 6 intruders in the brig, but cost me 3 marines and alot of internal damage. I took a look at the damage, bought the spare parts and quickly took off again. I put the engineers to work and stayed within the area of Velari startstion. Thank god we beat back the MKIII and its fighters, but at what cost: 1.) I had 1 operational fighter and 2 shuttles. 2.) 5 pilots were either wounded or dead. 3.) 3 marines killed in action. 4.) Mid-turret PTA destroyed. 5.) Other internal and external structural damage. 6.) Velari starstion, shields at 1000 and armor had lost 1000 points. I thought, well I am too banged up to go anywhere, might as well stay here and protect the Starstion and repair my self. After a few hours, I have all shuttles and 2 fighters operational. Mid-turret laser is functional also. Internal damage and systems coming back online, and 1 pilot cloned and 3 pilots coming out of medbay. The ship is somewhat operational and Velari is about 6000 shields so I decided to HJ over to Actis-IV in Procyon system And it started all over again, "There's something out there"! This time a Raider Firestorm decloaks. In closing, this is one hell of a game, and the AI is something to be reckoned with! If I didn't know any better, I think the SC was actually the raider AI!

  2. I agree with everyone, after patch 1.0.02 , I have experienced "0" problems. Any additional patches is just extra gravy for all of us! And SC what happen to relaxing? Time for a preemptive strike on all of SC's computers, may be turn them off for a couple weeks so he can get some rest!
  3. If it is as good as the books, then it will be awesome!

    Nice system! Did you get the 19 inch with the system or already have it? With that type of PC, hell go for the 21 inch!
  6. Without a doubt, BCM is the most intriguing and messmerizing game I ever had the opportunity to play. Words alone can not express my enjoyment for this game! I can only say: "God created the Heaven and the Earth in 6 Days", "On the 7th day he rested", "And on the 8th day he created Derek Smart"! With the recent events happening here on the forum board, whatever you think you have to do Derek in taking time off and whatever, go for it! With BCM, you have hit the top!
  7. Sorry to post this here, SC Been away from the forum a few days Tried downloading the latest patch, and all I get is a blank white screen! Any thoughts?
  8. In case you don't get my email, you emailed me by mistake about your rollcall. Last time i checked Earthcom was not a member! Thanks anyway!
  9. It looks like next week Bakula is going to pull a Kirk! Seems to be that exploring the new frontier gets tiring; so he starts exploring a female alien!
  10. Yah, I took a look at Shirley and his posts! If he spent as much time as he does posting about BCM and you SC, on anything else in life, he may someday become successful at something!

  12. Sentinel Worlds, that thing had more bugs than Starship Troopers had in the movie. Some old games, huh, how about: Bards Tale, Mech Brigade, and one of my alltime favories Wasteland!
  13. quote:- waiting for some hapless NPC to come use it, so I can separate his head from his shoulder. SC, you mean some newbie like myself! Anyway, Very nice shots! Curious to see what that would like at night!
  14. quote:Aw great, Earthcom just fined us for polluting Saturn's Rings. Something about already being too many frozen testicles there... Any new ideas? If youre gonna make a mess, at least call the janatorial fleet for waste removal!
  15. I kinda thoughtso SC. But that's why i hoped one of the veterans or yourself replied.
  16. something like that almost happened to me. We called our local phone company, had a one-time charge(I am not sure what you call it), but we can not be billed for any other phone provider or have our service switched changed or rerouted for whatever reason. Almost pays to have have my father has a retired 2nd level supervisor also! That is, retired from this Baby bell, now SBC Communications. [ 10-05-2001: Message edited by: jstuart ]

  18. Well, never saw an error like that. Is this demo 1 or demo 2? Make sure you read the demo faq. Try and have the latest video drivers for your video card and sond card. The drivers should be direct X 8 compatible. BTW, what are your sysytem specs: Windows Os: ? Make and model of Video card an version of drivers: ?
  19. Who said spreading a little love doesn't hurt anyone! Must replay in a comtimnous loop!
  20. Even if it had that listed on the box, I'd rather be stationed on the worst ship in the janitorial fleet cleaning the head!
  21. Don't wait. I have a GeForce 2 Ultra, when I first played the BCM demo, I ahd to do 1 tweak, z-buffering. In demo 2 BCM no tweaks. Never liked ATI, would rather be piloting a freighter being attacked by a Stormcarrier than use ATI.
  22. That happens to me when i go to tow a hostile ship that is emitting and SOS First I jump to the location of the disabled ship, an as i come out of the jump, Wow I'm in null space usually wait a second to get bearings, then jump back to real space
  23. Pic2 by far, just a big white cloud engulfing the troops, with SC waiting for the matter to clear? Nice pictures It doesn't get any better than this!
  24. If you are looking for something that will counteract the force of a black hole, then you must get a "SC drive" From listening to all the stuff we keep posting over the years(the old guys) and us newbies; that is probably the only thing that can keep ongoing, and going and going, ...etc
