Startopia

This is an unofficial version from one of the game developers, with some extra improvements, patches and features released couple of months after 1.01 patch came out. It's an unofficial patch (but it's very stable and generally recommended). This version does not feature Safedisc CD protection and has an experimental feature of realtime shadows (disabled by default, developer warns about it being unstable and extremely slow). You need to patch the game to 1.01 first. Not sure about the license for this patch.

Additional Comments

Bug #31082: While the loading bar is charging, the game shows an error: "Something very funny about your video card". Keeping the button "ESC" pressed makes the loading bar charge until the end, so the game starts fine. "Shine" option: The "borders" of the space ship in the menù and some other in-game textures should be reflecting when "shine" option is activated. This does not happen. Crash at the exit: The game crashes while exiting but it's not so important.

HowTo / Notes

Performance

When you have performance issues.

Set your audio to lower quality en less sound events.

It seems that wine is not very good with dealing with a lot of sound events and pulse.

 Cheers
