i have orion pirates also but i think it might be working okay, no crash yet

If you are using the unofficial 2563 patch then it is always a good sign. ^^

Hi

I am unable to get SFC3 to start at all on windows 10, i have added whatever patches i can but nothing works -

also i have SFC 2 eaw and it starts but crashes atfter a few minutes in game

i have orion pirates also but i think it might be working okay, no crash yet

also the in battle UI is confined to the top left of my screen, how do i make teh UI full screen to fit the 3d battle screen


I provided a link that some have been able to use that allows SFC:III to work with Windows 10.   If it works, great!  The link also has a couple of mods to try out.

Hi,
Maybe you can help  ;)

SFC:EAW - Windows 10, obviously, runs fine, got 2036 and 2037 patches installed plus async=0 ini file mod.

Running in Windowed mode makes it a tiny litttle screen, so that's no fix, and 16-bit colour makes no differencey but I have the following probs:

1) General crashing
2) Background space colour is pale blue for the Klingons, and difficult to see anything (maybe the other non-Fed races too?).
3) If I could play at a higher res AND get the UI to scale that would be great.

All help appreciated  :D

Will.

PS: Just installed the CE patch and it won't run at all now :(, maybe it's not compatible :(
