Welcome back. There was a lot of interest in this project and it did seem like a pity if it was dead.

Thanks for updating.

Tell me, as you're a starlancer veteran no doubt I've been woundering about this: after playing the game again, I've noticed that all coalition ships displayed in the ETAC have been downed in my tour of duty, save the Kresta. Do you actually encounter that bugger ingame?

It's one of the cyclon cruisers, should this help you. Also I do have a question regarding a few aces that appear in starlancer, especially al rahan.

While I am certain it will be too new to me to be able to recognize the made-over game versus the original, the idea that two games as old as Freespace I/II and Starlancer still have adherents today is really encouraging to me.  Ten years ago, I was so busy working, and had such a hectic home situation, that I hardly knew what games were coming and going that I was missing.  

That kind of schedule wound down slowly until about five years ago, when I suddenly had both more time than I could fill, and less cash with which to invest in my hobbies / interests.  eBay was my relief from the cash-short part, and tax abatements based on age helped reduce the financial burden.  

Within in past few days, I assembled an older model PC system to run (mostly) with Windows98se, and installed Starlancer yesterday, but I have both of the Freespaces, and Freelancer, on the shelf as well.  I was waiting until my sound processor was better before I played, though.  The AWE64 that I had ten years ago sounds way too scratchy, so I have another, from an eBay seller again, to see if that helps.  

It's built around an Asus P5A with a K6-2/350, 384 MBs of PC-100 RAM, a Geforce2 GTS 32 MB video card, the AWE64, and a 40 GB Seagate Hdd jumpered to show up in the BIOS as 32 GBs.  I put it all inside of a very tall, somewhat skinny, tower case with a pedestal base that reminded me of the IBM PS/2 Model 80 cases from 1987.

(Like many of the old tower cases, it's is mostly empty inside, has only three 5 1/4" bays, and two 3 1/2" Hdd bays, so it would be top-heavy as can be, were it not for the base section.)  

Does that make me a gamer, or a hardware nut, or a little of each?
