that was to add to the dramatic effect lol
I can't understand why anyone would complain I'm running this thing off of 2.8ghz 760+ ram and a 128 vid card I shut everything down I can including explorer the game runs choppy as hell and I still can't get enough of this game the fact that it's moddable is just a bonus
FinalWarsGodjira;3463413He said getting a lock on the Enterprise....they couldn't get a lock while in the cloud...
but in the first part of the movie when Khan first attacks it did take a few seconds for them to lock phasers and they where right beside the Enterprise.
A few seconds at best all things considered. One most remember that particular scene in ST:TWOK was also dragged out for dramatic effect by Nick Meyer. Notice how long it took to play out the scene itself between the Reliant complaining their chambers coil emissions were messing up their comms, to Spock taking sensor readings on the Reliant's chambers coil emissions, to the Reliant taking sensor readings on the Enterprise's shield status, to the Reliant locking phasers, to Spock seeing sensor readings indicating a phaser lock, to Kirk ordering the shields to be raised, to Khan ordering the Reliant's phasers to be fired [whew]. Thus the events really can not be considered to have happened in real time (i.e. one second on screen equals one second in real life). Even if you don't take that into account, Khan's rag tag crew most likely has never operated the phaser fire control system of a late 23rd century Starfleet vessel let alone fired the phasers of said Starfleet vessel. Taking all this into account taking a few seconds to get a firing solution on the Enterprise and opening fire before Kirk could order the shields to be raised is actually pretty good when taken in this context. Unfortunately this movie never demonstrated how fast a trained, experienced crew (i.e. Sulu and Chekov) could gain phaser lock and fire upon a ship with the targeting system working correctly. Alas since Star Trek II was the only movie (of the original series era) that visualized a Federation starship firing its phasers, we may never know the answer.
Or in other words, that one scene in ST:TWOK can not really be considered a fair representation of phaser targeting and fire control operation on a 23rd century movie era Federation starship.
Im gonna say this now and probably not again. If you have both the 360 and PC version you notice one thing. Its a 360 port. Its dumbed down for the pc and that just pissed me off beyond belief. Its amazing ont he 360 but when you go to the PC its like they forgot about the whole keyboard concept. Anyway, it seems that this game was made for 360 and then slapped onto the pc for more money. I was fooled and I feel foolish for ignoring the creators comments on how its best played on the game pad. Alas, Legacy is the tragedy of the 21st century that will require much mending, carring, and TLC from this community.
At last i got the game to work just the way i want it to:) a few weeks ago i got the game when it frist came out and i looked like carp in 800*600 but look great in 1280*1024 but my poor old :0wned: 9550pro:0wned: could not take it so i just let it sit on the hard so night before last i did all my windows update and i update to 7.1 ati drivers and i was not think about the game or any thing but after i did that i started the game up and it look great so now am going to hook my xbox 360con up and play some of the game and i can now run the game on 800*600 very high :) and as i see there all ready a lot of mods out there for the game so in my case it was just a few update and the new ati drivers so best of luck to people that it is still not working for it been over a mouth but that ok. now to play the game past the frist mission lol.:beer:
I agree that for hope for this game (for me AT LEAST) rests within this mod community, and or others like it. I corresponded with " IKS_YO_MAMA " for a brief period of time( A Moderator for this site), And I can say that for not having the game at the time. He was already tearing into some files and the .config file he recieved from someone. Keep in mind that this game was not released yet in his region , So he was going through the files with no game for him to test it on. Now that takes skill and determination. It also gives me hope that in 10 months I may want to purchase this game again, as it will have mods I want to play; AND ONLY because of the HARD WORK that people like " IKS_YO_MAMA " and others like him put forth to make it so. I Have a new project I am allready commited to so I can't spend the time ON Star Trek legacy, as I have joined " TEAM PSYCHOSIS" On the " ALIEN REVENGE" mod for doom 3, right before the U.S. release of Leagacy. Time will also give my Irish temper time to fade at the cheap console port to pc for STL.
LOL, I guess this thread would never go away as the most popular unless it was removed. ROTFLMAO !!!!
Ya it vanished for a while,but now it's back. LOL. It was probably a maintenance thing. Q4 filefront, and Doom 3 filefront have been doing maintenance as well. Stuff has been popping off and on , at all these sites, all week.
In all honesty, I think this thread should be pulled from the most popular forums thread. I did start this thread , so I hope I can request that it be removed from the most popular active forum threads,to make way for more positive events and posts that deserve attention as well. I will write a message to Joelteon7 and IKS_Yo_Mama to request this thread be pulled from it.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

Unfortuneately, the system doesn't work like that. The only way I could it from the list would be to delete the thread...and I don't really want to do that. Besides, people can still discuss it, so I don't think it's a problem :)
