What works

I just had a quick run through of the main features

  • load/save game
  • inspect planets
  • generate a few years
  • send some ships around
  • ship/research/battle plans browsers
  • Stats reports
  • Production queues, etc
  • Ship orders
  • read the news and jump to planets and ships from the new
  • change screen display options (large/small/medium)
  • change galaxy display options (zoom/minefields/text,etc)
  • close
  • registration
  • password protection
  • Custom Race designer/New game (very briefly!)
The refresh problems appear to be fixed.

What does not

The Battle VCR fails on load - you have to kill Stars! and restart. I would suggest this is due to the use of wavemix.dll. The battle VCR works fine in the shareware version (2.60j)- and the only difference is that the shareware version does not include sound support (and hence wavemix.dll).


What was not tested

  • Help. I don't have the help file handy
  • Install, I've always j­ust run the stars!.exe file
  • Text dumps
  • Host only mode
  • ­

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Use the shareware version for a working Battle VCR - it uses exactly the same serial numbers as the commercial version
