    You sir have excellent tastes in games.

    That's a classic, designed by the legendary Tim Schafer, who also created Grim Fandango and Monkey Island.

    He's the head of Double Fine Studios now.

    Super Melee is the combat portion stand alone where you can practice with the ships. You can change the key bindings if you want.

    I apologize for the zeal, I'm just super geeky with old games, and this particular one is the reason why I became a programmer :).

    Feel free to drop me a line or ask questions anytime about this one, I can rave for hours haha.

    Smart woman ;)
    I'm always pi**ed off, when I found out, that JavaScript wasn't working, because I missed ";" sign in some line. More frustrating for me is fact, that I don't know how to access PHP console (like JS console built-in Firefox)
    Maybe, but I'll try other method to bring her here...

    @Athena I promise you if you come back, Swirly will be nice for you. I'll try to make him do that...

    I'll get in to that.
    I used to love programming, but i stopped doing it because i didn't had the time anymore.
    And now i don't now where to start anymore.
    What would be a good (useful) programming language to learn nowadays?
    I have a basic knowledge of C, Machine code, HTML, SQL, VHDL, visual basic[​IMG].

    They did.

    Toys for Bob created it (Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III), and owned the rights to the characters and universe. Accolade, however, as the distributor owned the distribution rights and the rights to the game as itself. Star Control 2 very nearly didn't get made, and the two developers actually went about 6 months past the deadline, at one point mortgaging their houses since they weren't being funded, to finish it. There were a number of other things they wanted to do but they never got a chance to. That said the game is still a masterpiece.

    Accolade refused to sell the rights to the creators, so they ended up just letting Accolade have it and walked away in disgust. Accolade then made a farmed out inferior third game that had no input from the original creators.
