*humps leg*
Hell yeh, k240 was THE SHIZ!

Yeh, played fragile alliagence a lot as well, not a bad remake to be honest.
I really really want a 2011 spec version of K240, with epic space battles and missiles etc :D:D:D

I still remember
*beeboobeeboobeeboobeeboobeeboo* *BANG*
Followed by horrible green muck crawling over your precious fleet construction asteroid. dissolving all your buildings as it goes.
So much fun


those virus missiles used to cause all sorts of problems! although i did favour either nukes or a mega missiles, on FA i used to have a "missile base" it had screen generators, guns, few repair centres and a nice engine to move my attack base around the place :D and of course about 30 silos.. 29 explosive missiles and 1 mega, there anti missile guns stood no chance!

BOOM

ROFL
Yeh, I used to spam ridiculous amounts of scatter missiles, like 20-40 or so, then follow it with a nuke or a small blob of those orange hellfire ones 10-15 sec later. Really messed stuff up, scatters were great at weakening every structure on the roid so that nukes/hellfires would instapop everything left.

Then of course I had the 'bbq' and 'taser' model of fleet BS, they were filled to the brim with those chaos bombs and vortex generator respectively. They were heaps of fun to drop on unprotected roids

God, I think I'm gonna go play it now

OH GOD THE MEMORIES

I started with an A500... then my dad upgraded it to an A1200.

Then we threw a 120MB hard drive in it.

Then I threw in a daughterboard with a 68030 processor and an extra 16MB RAM on it too!

Those were the days...

In terms of games I used to play LOTS:

Wings (OMG I KILLED THE RED BARON SO MANY TIMES)
Colonization (Take that, native indians!)
The Settlers (These are MY lands now!)
Wing Commander (pewpew in space!)
Monkey Island 1+2 (I'm Guybrush Threepwood... MIGHT PIRATE!)
Civilization (our words are backed up with NUCLEAR WEAPONS!!!)
Formula 1 (nnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
Fields of Glory (HAVE AT THEE, NAPOLEON!)
Dune (ZOMG I HAS PSYCHIC POWERS)
Dune 2 (That Spice was yours? Oh I'm sorry.... NOT.)

I could go on...

News at the top of the hour, Eve player says another game has no instruction manual. More at 11.

I don't have a guide for it either, I pretty much had to figure it out the hard way, but in essense it's no different to m2.2 which yeah I know it's awesome but the combat was so poor... yuck.

It's also a story follow on. So you start off on the moon, and the earth is messed up. Basically start digging, get materials advance tech, **** off the martians by sending out probes, prepare for unending war.
You don't want me to give too much away, but one thing is important, sucking is important. Some of the more important tech in the game won't get invented until the game decides you need it (necessity being the mother of invention I guess). If you can keep up the ridiculous production levels later on to maintain enough [spoiler alerts] to keep the martians at bay and continue to slowly expand your empire, they will never invent the [spoiler alert] that makes martian repelling somewhat less time consuming.
Also, you have to find pieces of the [spoiler] which are scattered all over. Otherwise the game will never end.

aha, thanks for that.
I think I was doing something wrong the first time I played it, I got out to jupiter and found some piece of..... whatever that thing is. Didn't encounter any martians though, got frustrated after a couple hours, haven't played it since.

I shall give it another go I think, it definately looked like an improvement over m2.2 as far as content etc goes.


Also I been playing frontier the last day or two, that's surprisingly cool. Quick question for vets though, is the only way to travel to far off systems hyperdrive? Not sure if I should be attempting to fly manually and just fast forwarding the time or not Embarassed

Manual flying in Frontier, if you can achieve it, you're the first person ever.

The maths behind intercepting a ship in space with a view to fighting it is pretty much beyond the scope of the human brain, also it'll take you a whole evening to even get close to them, only to find that you whistle past them at a relative speed of maybe KKERRRRPOW! kilometres per second and your whole evening just got wasted.

Auto pilot, time speed up. It's the only way to be sure.

Keep building orbital stations. The martians will get all Non-Proliferation Treaty on your ass when they consider you're a threat.
And don't worry too much about finding all the pieces of that thing just yet, it will be a hella long time before you will even be able to find all the pieces or need them.

Something's been borked with my version of fragile allegiance for a while now, some of the building animations have been corrupted somewhere along the way, so now the game usually CTD's while trying to setup my roid :(
Trying to work on a fix atm, I gotta find some way of disabling animations. Hell if I can't figure it out I'll just go find a new version to download.

As far as strategy goes, I used to do a lot of zerging. Heaps of assault ships with static inducers accompanied by dual plasma cannon combat eagles.
Really really powerful combo heh, but they can die pretty easy if they come up against too much anti-ship defense.
Usually I send those guys in, and then pull them off the planet before landing my chaos bomb/vortex fleet. Combat eagles ftw, cheap gank owns Laughing

North and South was so awesome... getting more armies, choosing your side, going after the train lines, taking over enemy bases and trains, fighting each other on the battlefield with cannons, horses and troops.... everything about that game was funny

OMG, soo many memories in this thread!

I had the A500 first with the 512k upgrade, and the hard drive that plugged into the Zorro slot on the side. Traded those in for the A1200 with the 68030 + FPU and 8mb RAM.. eventually ended up with the A4000. How I wish I'd never sold those!

Games I used to love though were the Mercenary series, Frontier, It Came from the Desert 1&2, Rocket Ranger, Shadow of the Beast, Dungeon Master, Lemmings, Syndicate, Whales Voyage 1&2, Millenium 2.2 and Deuteros, Monkey Island.. oh god the list is endless!

Oh and who can forget Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders? I LOVED that one :)

I also had the 3D Construction Kit and I used to spend literally DAYS creating games on it.. I had some crackers on there but they're now relegated to that big recycle bin in the sky.. Sad

Yesss, I used to do the exact same thing :D
Really liked the backstory for the aliens, and all the ship details/schematics etc.
Also the strange little messages from Sci-Tek scattered throughout the manual, sorta reminds me of Fallout in that regard.
