Homeworld's epic tale
begins in the far reaches of the universe. You were the benign lords of
a peaceful society located in the center of a lush spiral galaxy. For
as long as anyone could remember, no one challenged your peaceful
existence. But then came the conquerors, invading with the sole purpose
of overtaking your world. Billions died, and the survivors were
relocated to a cold, lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy.
Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of your previous existence has
been lost. Only vague myths remain, until the discovery of an ancient
tablet buried within the ruins of a half-destroyed craft in the
great-banded desert. This Guidestone reawakened the knowledge of your
ancestry, and set your race on the path home - coordinates leading
straight into the heart of the galaxy. Sixty years ago, construction
began on the giant Mothership that will carry millions of your people
into deep space. Construction is now complete. Your journey to the
Homeworld begins here...

What does not
What does not
1) Games starts with blackscreen, but sounds works. Can't change video options - game dies after at and you see a black screen (need to change in registery manually)
After installing, the default settings is software rendering with a
resolution of 640x480. Trying to change this in the game made the game
crash for me. I started regedit and changed the following under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sierra On-Line\Homeworld\deviceToSelect = d3d
the keys found beneath, screenDepth, ~width and ~height explain themselves.
