I may have found a new STABLE way to play botf on win7

Lately, nothing seems to work. I've gone thru all the tricks, and finally decided to try something new. In Windows 7, install the multi-installer as normal. Before launching game from win7 desktop, right-click -> properties. Compatibility -> Windows 98 / Windows Me Privilege Level -> Run this progra...

Re: Multi FlagShip mod Beta released 5-3-2009

hmmm I went to a Win8.1 computer, installed Flagship, runs fine, installed 1024 patch, didn't take on that machine either. The pop-up window gave the windows registry error.

I was gonna cheat, and just copy the trek.exe and stbof file from my windoze box to my wine box LOL oh well no dice.

Re: Multi FlagShip mod Beta released 5-3-2009

Yes, wine has a registry, and regedit, just like windows.

I'll try your suggestions! Need more coffee first :) brb

Re: Linux problems/solutions please post them here

Works great on Debian testing, having fun over here. ALT-TAB doesn't always let you switch back to the desktop. It's a problem with the desktop manager, not botf. If this happens to you, you can always use the desktop manager to start/switch to another login session. I'm on KDE. I Press ctrl-alt-ins...

Any chance the "All The Ages" mod will ever be balanced?

Hi all, It's been a spell since I last posted here. I still play vanilla, and the planet mod, but must say my favorite mod is the "All The Ages" mod. It's a shame it's prejudiced against Cardassians. If you start at tech level 1, the home planet has HALF the population growth as other planets. Also,...

New challenge: Post your highest score game

No, it's not what you think. This is simple clean fun. Time for something a little different, some friendly, and honest competition. No, not high level, no cheats on, nothing like that. Rules: * single player * start at tech level 1 * small map * any galaxy shape * difficulty normal * no minor races...
