*sigh*

There is soooooooooo much dust and cobwebs in here.

Will be nice to clean the place up again.

Ok, here it is:

The link to the installer:   ftp://www.dynaverse.net/sfc2ce/Public%20Beta/

The installer is already prepatched and contains the CE patch also.
This location will also contain any patches or updates.

If you find a bug please report it here:  http://www.dynaverse.net/forum/index.php?project=2

This is an updated EAW to run on Dyna/Win 7 etc.

If it asks for a CD Key, use your EAW CD key.

Playing on Dyna, please use the Strat CE Beta.   The Forge CE does not support this version.

Changes:
EAW base code updated to use the current releae of MS C++  (Visual Studio 2012)
Issues with extensive lag while running game on Win 7 resolved
Missions rebuilt for newer version c++

By changing the codebase it makes it easier to fix bugs we find.
Also the dev team has learned a significant amount about the game code and this will help us in the SFC4 development.

If you do not have an SFC: Empires At War Key, you can purchase one here for $5.99:

The key will activate the full version of SFC: Starfleet Command 2 Community Edition

An update has been released "Beta Update 1" this returns the default key mapping to the game.  This is a self extracting zip to the default install location.

This update only corrects the keymap to the default one.

It took awhile to dl for me but not that long. The speeds seemed to hover around 360Kb per second on a 12Mb line. I think someone needs to put some speed into the hamsters diet.
I am alright, it is the world that is wrong.
