Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

I highly appreciate your opinion. This is a one-man project, so there's a lack of different views. There already is some stuff one the to-do list because of your input. There will be a settings file created to switch some game elements like the excessive randomness on/off. Also I'm not afraid to los...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Iceman, your feedback is great. I will try top explain some of the behavior of the game in the order you mentioned it. That "alt-TAB" black screen is a real pain. But I could not find how to get direct draw to take over control again. There is an "aquire" routine for directinput keyboard, but I just...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Feedback would be nice, of course. The power counters are fixed already, as well as the onscreen combat text on the enemy ship and the indicator that marks your own shield facing towards the combat target. Presently, Tethys planet types are being prepared to be included, in case he grants permission...

Re: (Download) ST:BotF Galaxies MOD v0.3.0a

May I kindly ask for the planet .ANI files of this Mod?
I like the idea to extend the number of planet types in another little project.
Just need all the .ani files. I can convert them to .TGA with my Hex-Editor and then via RadVideo tool to .BMP

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Yes, if you never played the board game "Star fleet battles" from Amarillo, or the Starfleet command 1 / 2 computer games you will not know much about the weapon data. They are almost all from that games. What stuff you need can depend on your enemy. If they are coming with lots of drones, you would...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Redeployment is quite simple. The ships in the lower part are those in the selected fleet. Ships in the above are in other fleets that sector. Left click to move a ship into or outta fleet & right click to open the ship modification screen, just like the shipyard in system screen. So you can design ...

Well, in the light of any possible copyright infringement I have to honestly deny any connection to the creation of this...thing. Let's say I'm just pretty well informed. And I still use Win98 ( FE ) as primary OS, with Win2K on another system for those more modern tasks. Programming skill got stuck...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

The whole thing got hurried into release. Because there is not much time to work on it the next few weeks, the release would have been delayed well into the next year. After saving by F6, there should be a "SAVEGAME" file in the assets folder, which gets loaded on F9. Or "SAVEGAME1", 2, 3 etc. for t...

Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Here is another BOTF clone. It's a crap game combining BOTF and Starfleet command. It's singleplayer and does not support online or network gaming, but only offers limited hotseat ability. Most of the combat speech is german, except those taken from BOTF. It's a Win32 application. So here is an upda...

Re: anyone played with the pop maintenance for main building

The number is only calculating the output. Setting it to 5 will double the output, but will still take 10 population for a factory to run.

Re: Yet Another BotF Clone

What version of C++ will there be needed to play around with the code once it is released ? I currently work with 6.0 and DirectX 8. Yea, I know, - I could hammer code into a cave wall as well.... About equipment: Does one need an OpenAL sound system ? Do we need a high end Graphics card. I would ap...

Re: Battle length

Greetings ! I did some testing with battles of only a few turns ( 4 to 6 mainly ) and I found the results quite interesting. As most battles do now take several game turns, it is possible to bring in reinforcements into ongoing battles. It is now also possible to invade a system even with superior h...

Tactical cheating

Hello ! I just wanted to submit 2 little infos on manipulating tactical. I did not find these with the search function, but if they are already known -> sorry + please delete topic. I discovered that you can "lend" commands from other ships in a battle. Just click on your ship and move the mouse ove...
