ATTENTION: THIS PATCH IS AN UNOFFICIAL BETA PATCH and is not supported by Activision Customer Support, Taldren, or Dynaverse.net. This patch addresses the need for balance since the last 534_b patch where the Federation and Klingon Empire were left without a battleship and the Borg and Romulans were given one that was selectable in game, and attempts to address many outstanding issues, including officer damage and balancing changes to single player and multiplayer skirmish mode, single player conquest mode, single player campaign mode and Dynauniverse 3 multiplayer mode. For comments, questions, or general support, contact Wildcard or NCC74656 (Sean) on the forums or email us wildcard@trek-online.com or Sean@trek-online.com 


Once installed, there is no "uninstall" for this patch that would roll your game back to the previous (release) version of Starfleet Command III. Therefore, once you have installed this beta patch, the only way to revert to the release version of the game is to uninstall Starfleet Command III completely, and then reinstall the game from your Starfleet Command III CDROM.



Proper Patch install method: Make a new folder in your programs folder on your Hard Drive, name it SFC 3 534_C. Install SFC 3 into that folder so that it will not interfere with your other versions of the game that you play and you know what version it is.

Make sure to disable your virus software before starting the installer.

Make sure your video card drivers are up to date and current. It is recommended you install and use the Direct X 9c or later. If you have already have Direct X 9c or later you will skip the step where it asks you if you want to install Direct X 8.1. If you already have Gamespy you will skip the step where it asks you if you want to install Gamespy, of course if you want Gamespy and do not have it by all means install it. 

After you are finished installing the game, install the patch using the browse option to locate the folder on your hard drive named SFC 3 534_C and run the patch to install into that folder. You will not need any other patch all previous patches are included in the 534_C unofficial balancing patch.
