Yeah I've always thought that a VS mode would be really cool - kinda like speed chess, except not degrading to the original game in the way that speed chess is.

Yeah just make sure that you're the last one to have hit the abandoned ship, and when it self destructs a few turns later, you'll get the kill credit. You can actually use this tactic to get an insane number of kills per mission.

I decided to give the game another go. Died 2wice, haven't died since then:

I named it after the creator of the world from the Silmarillion. Thought that was badass.

Well to hack the game you'll need a debugger / dissassembler program, and some basic knowledge of what you're doing. I myself used a program called ollydebug to hack the shields-per-side-limit from eight to 12.

I bet you have a custom ship by now....I know I did. I built a custom ship myself and gave it nothing but plectrons. Every so often, when I'd made enough more $$, I'd modify the original template to include armor upgrades and such. I got to mission 93 before a freak salvo of 2 plectrons got in and w...

Don't worry, none of that stuff is readily apparent. There should be a small readme popup for first-time players. It could give info like how much $ you get for each medal/mission/etc.

I would like to see a program that awards you lives based on your performance, not some arbitrary 5 lives per-commander. How about.....3 Gold Metals = One (1) Extra life?

Orrr...............if you're good enough, no matter which ship you fly you'll be able to pwn with whatever loadout you have already. I can play any given round and have missiles left over - my point - if you get skilled, you'll find that what's already there will do the job just fine. ;) (the except...

It was an .exe hack. I also tried to change the megatons of damage done by each missile, but I don't think that worked. I'm not a coder yet, so I couldn't add anything anyway, so I just stick to changing obvious things. I do have a legal copy of the game btw. I have always thought that having a pers...

Ya I love the way I can start out with full missles/8 shieldperside, and get worn down in battle to almost no shields and a light missle compliment. My turn goes from 70* to like 76* It's like metaphorical of how an animal or person while fasting or abstaining from food will become sharper of mind a...

Once after all of my wingmen had perished, I was in my custom "titan", and there was one warrior left who was not fleeing for some reason. So we are dueling out in the middle of the deep blue, and our ships have the same turning radius and speed, so it's pretty much a stalemate. So he and I start ha...

Oh, and we seriously need a "hold fire" command. I have been thinking of several easy changes/additions. 1. "Hold Fire" command 2. Side Firing tubes, allowing for true capitalship battles. 3. Minimizeable mini-map. That thing takes up alot of space IMO. Even make your ship schematic minimizeable. 4....
