Scam posts and a PSA for ya all.
« on: December 16, 2014, 02:18:33 pm »
Hey friends old and new alike. I just wanted to let ya know, that we are sorry that some lame Ferengi got through our shields the other day. Some offering pay day loans, others offering whatever. I know Nemesis and I have been working in tangent, to catch these, and will continue to do so.

But we can't be online 24-7. I wanted to let you all know about a feature we have on the boards, at the bottom of any post, there is a button to report to Moderator. If you happen to see one of these guys spamming again, Please hit that button and let us know so we can lock them out.

With Christmas coming up, a lot of boards have these problems, but as we all know, clicking a bad link can be bad for every one.

Thanks every one, and have a great week!

Stephen aka Sirgod.

You misread my post.  I only do business with Nigerian princes.  Its been long established that I am an Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico.  And my deal with the Nigerians will soon increase my personal wealth.

Ahh, it all makes sense now.  With Nigeria under your control, you would have the three richest nations under your thumb. the US of A, the US of Mexico, and Nigeria. ;)

I am having a little trouble with the patch. I had CE working from the initial download, but once updated with 2677 the program simply flashed a black screen and that was it. Help is appreciated, thanks for the game!

Open your sfc.ini file, which is found in the same place as Starfleet2CE.exe. Choose another value for "lowres". Valid values are 0 through 6. One of them will work best for your machine. Start with the common resolution described by a value of 3. Try "windowed" = 0 for fullscreen mode or "windowed" = 1 for windowed (PiP) mode.
