It is taking me 45 min to over an hour to complete one mission. It seems that the ships weapons are not strong enough. Is anybody having this same issue? What is there that I can do about it?
Go to the weaponitems.GF file in your [SFC3Directory]/assets/commonsettings folder, and increase the damage if you think the weapons are too weak. But remember, in doing this, you will no longer be able to play on a server online. As well, as the SFC series is more tech and tactical so don't set the damage TOO high; t's not all about straight up action and shooting. You want that, I say play Klingon Academy.
Thanks for the suggestion. I finally figured out the game and didn't have to change anything.
