Hi Everyone,

The 20th Anniversary of the release of Birth of the Federation is now less than 2 months away "May 25 2019" it is gratuitous that it also falls on Saturday.

I propose we gather on GameRanger for quick multi-player games and reminiscing about our favorite game.

I will try to be on GameRanger as much as I can that day and night and hope to see you there.

Re: Game does not start after launch

1. I re-downloaded and re-installed many times. I used the same download file to install BOTF on another PC and it works fine there. 2. I did as you said for event viewer, and here are the results as asked for: Faulting application path: C:\botf\Vanilla\trek.exe Fault offset: 0x00033030 There were a...

Re: Game does not start after launch

I checked, and the required listings are there. I did note that my laptop has 48 hertz and 60 hertz for the listed resolutions, but not 75 hertz.

I installed the DirectX 9, same result. I may try to shift the settings on the Intel Graphics chip, but it does seem very touchy to do so. I will keep trying...

Re: Game does not start after launch

I tried the Windowed version and kept it at the original 800*600, it still crashed after starting the game. The 1080 patch did not work for me either in my first instance or in this second instance. For the first instance, I wasn't able to select ANYTHING when the start-up screen appeared, and for t...

I almost always play as the Federation in vanilla, and usually by the time war starts heading my way I'll have at least 6 or 7 minors as members. Generally, I'll go for the friendly/neutral ones, and leave problem ones like the Nausicans or Chalnoth or Antedeans for later on in the game when I have ...

Minor Race bug, or part of the game?

First off, thanks to whomever discovered the hexadecimal fix that allows you to contact minor races that are a part of another empire once you sign a friendship or greater treay with them. However, I notice that if a minor race rebels against its oppressors, you are then unable to send any treaties ...

Those purple bug things from "Conspiracy". According to Data the mother creature that took over Remmick sent a homing beacon. As far as I know that was never revisited because the idea evolved into the Borg. Those parasites actually play a major role in the book "Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Unity". ...

If you as the Feds are at a particular level of strength, then they won't declare war on you...they only do it when you're in a weaker position than them.

I'm playing a Cardassian game now, and I agree that they are pretty hard...I'm in the tail end of the game where it's just me and the Federation...and it's pretty much a stalemate! Actually, if the Federation were more agressive I'd be in trouble but I now have to figure out a way to improve my rese...

To all of you who keep saying "Star Trek is dead, Abrams killed it, Roddenbery would rotate in his grave" I've got one question. WHY isn't it Star Trek? There's the NCC 1701 and the crew we've all known for so many years. I started watching TOS again yesterday and it's not THAT different. Yes, it i...

From my surfing the net, the minority on this forum is the majority worldwide... One thing you can be sure of is that canon as you know it is kaput, gone, extinct. All of what you know happened in another timeline that pretty much ended when James Kirk's father died fighting Nero. I guess right now,...
