I see you've added your own Star Blazers avatar. I've just uploaded a new gallery of Star Blazers pictures you can choose from here now as well.

I was playing with a few of them. You have uploaded a couple I was debating about. Once again, host to the rescue. Now how about that Cylon vs Tholian game? I just know how much you Love Webs.

I would absolutely love to see a Star Blazer's shiplist... (ooooh Mr. Clouser....)

You want to play me in a 1x1? We would have to get that setup and running somewhere else since I couldn't do it here without knowing everything in the setup. Give Merlyn a call and tell him to turn on the server.

I could always setup the game for you. As long as you do not look at the host files you should be clueless about the setup. :shock:

I considered that but the best way would be to play somewhere else. Then there's never a shadow of a doubt. This is ironically why I do not often play games here other than a test game.

I seem to recall somebody suggesting a team game of that sort.
ie: one player playing multiple races.

I think that may have been Cardno or Fletch a while back.

Don't have time for a 1x1 but it would be funny, Cylon vs Tholian. Not at all worried about it being hosted here though. I remember the last time, we meet, you may need the handicap of looking at the files before hand. Granted you would never do that, but even if you did, not sure it would help you.

Funny part is we were allowed to bring very little with us, as everything is very managed here. Brought 5 DVD's and 3 of them are the Star Blazers series. Series one, is still the best. Granted BC Rock is a favorite down here, most have never heard of it before, and the Stewy comments fly around here. Snow, snow everwere go NUTZ.

Rings a bell! Think I suggested a 2x2x2x2x2, with one player playing two races.

I would be dead keen to get involved in a game like that!

Co-incidentally ][avok, I actually did play in a game against Gunnado (which was hosted here, I think??). I played the lizards and xtals. Steve played pirates and I think the birdmen. We didn't finish it, but suffice to say, the xtals and lizards are a potent combination against the pirates and birdmen.

I was hammered in that game so quickly because I had nothing and I do mean nothing on my HW to build more ships... So snagging my one lone lonely Instrumentality at that point was crippling. In addition I thought you were going to be working with me against the IRJTN not against me. C'est la vie. At least I got the IRJTN Boneyard map out of the deal.

I prefer the second series with the Comet Empire. IMOP better story, better animation techniques, the redemption of Desslock and in the American version the Star Force survives.
