Star Trek: Starfleet Command other
Star Trek(r): Starfleet Command(tm) Readme File 14 Jan 2000 ------------------------- Installation Instructions ------------------------- Run SETUP from the Starfleet Command CD-ROM. Follow the on-screen instructions. Note that Starfleet Command requires DirectX 6.1 or later and it is highly suggested that you have the DirectPlay 6.1a Update if you are not using DirectX 7 or later. See: www.microsoft.com/directx This version of Starfleet Command is the most recent version available, 1.02.01. For the latest updates and information, point your web browser to: www.interplay.com/sfcommand or www.starfleetuniverse.com See the Supplemental Manual.pdf file in the Manual folder for more detailed gameplay information about this version. ---------------------------------- Bonus Files for Star Fleet Battles ---------------------------------- A series of .pdf files in the SFB Folder give you the complete Cadet's Handbook for Star Fleet Battles, the board game that SFC is based on. See www.starfleetgames.com for more information about Star Fleet Battles. ------------------ Manual Corrections ------------------ The following changes were made after the manual went to print: Briefing Button: The button to display your mission briefing during a mission is actually located on the communications panel. Weapon Groups: Weapon Groups are saved by each unique ship class. These groups are saved across all save games. Shipyard: Right-click on a ship to jump to that Vessel Library entry. Nebulas: You cannot reinforce shields in a Nebula. Capturing: A ship is captured when all enemy marines have been defeated and after a period of time (as your marines capture control stations and the bridge). Captured ships become part of your team, but cannot be controlled and will automatically attempt to disengage. Hotkeys ------- SHIFT-0 (or SHIFT-COMM OFFICER, if you change the defaults) displays a summary of the mission briefing during a mission. This is just like pressing the Briefing button on the comm panel. F12 saves a screenshot file (24-bit .BMP) in the Starfleet Command root folder.

Starfleet Command will not run if the Virtual Memory feature of Windows has been disabled. 2. Install the most recent video and audio drivers. 3. Flickering graphics on TNT-based cards: try disabling V-Synch. 4. ATI Rage Pro Turbo AGP 2x: Do not ALT-TAB out of Starfleet Command. There is a driver problem that will hang the machine. 5. The tutorials are time sensitive. If you play faster than the default speed, the tutorials may get out of sequence. There are no problems playing the tutorials at a slower speed. 6. Your desktop resolution setting must be at least as large as the resolution setting you are trying to play the game as. For example, if your Windows desktop is set to 800x600, don't try to play the game in 1024x768. 7. Attemping to play an audio CD without a full install may cause a lock-up while playing SFC. 8. ATI Rage 128 Expert or Extreme: If you do not see text in the 3d tactical view, try software mode. 9. Multiplayer on LANs: If you are playing simultaneous LAN network games, press UPDATE before joining a game if you have identical session names. 10. If you install on a system without a version of DirectX installed, of if you are having trouble installing, double-click SETUP.EXE on the CD-ROM. 11. If a player is dropped, DirectPlay may take up to one minute at the end of a multiplayer session to clean up. 12. If you have trouble with a Modem game, go to Start:Control Panels:System:Device Manager:Modem. Remove any bogus serial connections. ----------------- Technical Support ----------------- Interplay Entertainment Corp.
