Re: Any Luck Running SEV on a Netbook at 1024x600?

I think Fyron's barking up the right tree, you need to find a way to let Space Empires render the window at 768 pixels height or more, and have your PC cope with it somehow.

Can you adjust the...

Re: Intel Duo Core PC\'s

I'm reasonably inclined to agree with Fyron. I had a couple of SLI systems in the past - a pair of GeForce 2s years ago, and my last system had a couple of 7800GTs. For starters I didn't really...

Re: Intel Duo Core PC\'s

I had some teething problems when I started out with this system - I had lockups in all games after a minute or so, usually reported as a video driver error and sometimes restarting my system. I...

Re: Intel Duo Core PC\'s

Sorry to hear you are having trouble. For the record I am using a Core 2 Duo E8400 with a 7800GT and Vista Ultimate SP1 and am very happy. Performance is good across the board and SE5 is not a...

Re: Population Migration

As mentioned above, races migrate only towards planets with atmospheres they can breathe, which makes sense. From what I've seen though, the migration mechanic doesn't especially prioritise moving a...

Re: Retreating Task Forces?

Re: Retreating Task Forces?

It sounds like this is a strategy issue. I'm only familiar with the Balance Mod strategies, is that what you're playing?

In that case, all the strategies such as "Don't get hurt", "Max Range" etc....

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

Hi again,

Yes, from my current game with the latest release it's exactly as you describe. My old game findings were using PR4 and I can't reproduce my findings in the current release.

Do you...

Hello again Fyron, I have some more feedback on the Beta 12, apologies for monopolising this thread!

I like the new stellar abilities text, but in the specific game I've been playing that the...

Re: Be Honest

If I may wade in to the debate this late, to me the term "Science Fiction" covers all of those, rather than "Science Projection" (an interesting term I've not heard before). In my opinion a story...

Re: So I Have Finally Done It.

I have to agree. After playing the earlier versions a lot, I'd recently fallen back on waiting for official updates. 1.56 was a fantastic patch! I've also suddenly found myself putting in far more...

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

Fyron,

So now I am really scratching my head. Sorry to keep on this same topic!

I really can't get PR4 running no matter what I try. I've redownloaded the PR4 file from your Dev section, I've...

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

Aha! I will try that out. I assumed Beta 11 was needed first as it's so much larger than 12PR4... but I recall now that it's because of the multimedia pack arrangement now. Thank you for the help.

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

Hi again,

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

Hello Fyron,

So I've put in some time with PR4 and I like it a lot! The planet textures and atmosphere colours are really helpful now in their current form!

I have no major feedback; it's been...

Re: FQM Stellar Object Ability Descriptions

I voted Utilitarian. I also like flavour a lot, but those sector descriptions stack up in the top left of the screen, and if they are wordy then they can clutter a large amount of space!

Re: Just an idea for the UI.

This is a nice tweak. And with the colours so distinct from each other, you could tweak the image further to have the letters A, I, O removed from the top left of each square to reduce clutter on the...
