  1. 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/

    Universal Combat TLC 3.00.20 Released

    Due to a snafu with how Steam handles build branches, I had to re-release this patch yesterday. Please see the Steam announcement for more info.

    Galactic Command Echo Squad V2.11.09

    This build now also includes the GBS system. changelog
  8. The last version of UC to support multiplayer was the 2007 release of Universal Combat CE. As the master server went offline years ago, the server browser won't work. So you have to connect to a hosting (local or remote) machine using the command line options. I will be looking into adding multiplayer to UCTLC at some point in the very distant future, as time permits. Until then, I will see if it is possible to add the full UCCE (2007) build to the Steam version of UCTLC as a separate UNSUPPORTED install.

    Patch 2.11.08

    Shockingly I have been working on a new patch (changelog) for the Steam version of the game. I finished it last week, but have been doing some additional testing and cleanup. Hopefully it will be out by the end of the month.
  10. No don't. It's no longer supported and I am not going to mess with legacy games.
  11. I have been working on a new patch (changelog) which I expect will be out around the end of the month, once I get some last minute fixes implemented.

    GBS-V Scripting Tool Released

    To make up for the long lull that's in progress due to the significant amount of assets that are being created for this DLC, I have decided to release the scripting tools. The GBS (Game Builder System) tool includes the following: PREPARE: script parser (the interpreter is built into the game and runs in real time) BCSTUDIO: 3D model viewer PTESTUDIO: Planetary scene viewer Script sources for all scenarios included in UCCE 3.x Sample scripts It was original included in the latest Steam release, but I have moved it to the web so that it's quicker and easier to update. You can now download it from here. For more info, visit the newly created Modding Tools Steam discussion forum.

    GBS-V Scripting Tool Released

    I have created a heavily modified version of this ACM scenario script (CMDR_C0005). Download the CMDR_C0017 file Extract to the same please where you have your GBS\Scripts folder Read the CMDR_C0017.NFO text file to see what changed, how, why etc The archive also contains the parsed script, so you can just copy it to the correct path and run it. Then later you can read the NFO file to see how it was modded.

    Steam Discussion Forum

    No clue. Why not just play the demo on Steam? If the demo works, so will the full game. If it doesn't work, just uninstall it. I have no idea where to buy the older pre-Steam version. Plus, it has the same system requirements anyway.
