Minimum system requirements:
Q: The game won't start.
A: Make sure you meet the above system requirements, if you do then try restarting your computer. If that does not work, delete the game and try to re-install it again. If that does not work, please contact us with the form below and detail your computer specs and what exactly happens (ie: the Starbase Gunship icon bounces a few times and then disappears, the game starts but quits right after the resolution selection window, etc)
Q: Can I play "Windowed Mode" instead of fullscreen?
A: Yes! The game supports both Fullscreen and Windowed modes. To change modes just press COMMAND KEY + F (or Apple Key + F ). Do not do this during an actual mission, only change the modes in the main menu. You can also change the mode by holding down the OPTION button when double clicking on the game's icon during startup. This will bring up a window with resolution and fullscreen options. Some of the resolution and graphics options presented in this menu will not work with all systems.
Q: Can I change the screen resolution?
A: Yes. Hold down the OPTION key on your keyboard when double clicking on the game's icon to start the game. This should bring up a resolution and settings window that will allow you to select a resolution. When playing full screen, try to select the highest resolution your monitor supports.
Q: Can I configure my keyboard settings?
A: Yes. Hold down the OPTION key on your keyboard when double clicking on the game's icon to start the game. This should bring up a settings menu. Select INPUT and you will be presented with the various keys and functions used in the game.
Q: Can I flip the Y Axis so that the movement is more like a flight simulator?
A: Yes, start a mission and press the ESCAPE key on your keyboard. That should bring up the in-game menu and you can click on the "Flip Y Axis" button.
Questions & Feedback
How to play
You are the weapons officer onboard the TAF Warsaw, a state of the art gunship orbiting a remote Human starbase. You cannot control the gunship itself, only aim it's weapon systems.
The laser cannon rapid fires a simple energy beam directly at your target. It is very easy to aim but does the least damage. Upgrade this weapon quickly to increase its effectiveness.
* Higher laser upgrades use more energy so you may need to upgrade your generator as well to keep up with the energy demand.
The vulcan is a hi-speed minigun that fires small projectiles at approximately 1000 rounds per minute. The weapon has the shortest range, but does heavy damage. It is also difficult to aim as you need to "lead" your target to allow the projectiles enough time to cover the distance.
The Mass Driver is a powerful long range artillery shell that causes heavy damage. It is a slow moving projectile so you will need to "lead" your target to aim effectively. This weapon is best used against capital ships, but expert gunners will find it effective against smaller targets as well.
Missiles destroy most small ships with one hit and are great at tracking targets at long distance. Tracking will not work reliably at shorter distances.
Before a missile can track it needs to lock-on to a target. Wait for the blue "LOCKED" text to appear before firing. After a shot the missile launcher needs to reload before you can fire again. You have unlimited missiles.
