Re: This post is a placeholder for a real introduction
The wayback machine effectively takes periodic backup of internet, try these links :)

(I haven't looked for the members directory, I figure you know the site better than me)

edit: actually, if you need to login to the forum to get the members directory & their emails then I don't know if the wayback machine can help you, I doubt it can snapshot a page that requires authentication...

It can't. It can only archive publically accessible information.

Welcome and good luck, forum neighbor. (Mech Commander Omnitech)

I will take a look at the code (when I have time), may be I can help, MCO is old c++ code.

Re: This post is a placeholder for a real introduction
I'm currently trying out this wayback machine, but not having much luck. Is it supposed to take such a long time to load up the site archive? I've been watching it say it's loading the site for close to 10 minutes now and it still hasn't gotten by the screen where it says its loading. Is this normal? Thanks for the lead in any event.

GOod news!!! I finally was able to access the snapshot of the site and was able to obtain email addresses for 3 very prominent members who have now been contacted. Hopefully I'll be hearing from them soon. In the meantime I'm going to go searching for more addresses. Thanks very much for this outstanding idea!!!

Re: This post is a placeholder for a real introduction
I was browsing for SS content on the webs and found this wiki article with few entries there, added a link to the HLP board as the SS open source project.
Hope that's ok with you guys.

Well if it isn't the guy who first inspired me to learn how to mod. Good to hear from you, Mike. I have contacted many of the guys from the old site. So far they have not shown up but many of them have said they will do so in the near future. I'm still hopeful that they will come here and contribute to this community. In any event it's good to hear from you.

indeed! I hope they'll show up! the starshatter community sported to many promising projects to go out like that. Perhaps should wdboyd find his way here, he'll continue working on his solcom and red rift campaigns...

I truly hope he does one day produce the Red Rift mod. He and I had several discussions about the back story for the mod and it would be VERY VERY good if produced. Just as good if not even better than Solcom. I have to believe that he will eventually get back into modding starshatter at some point. He told me he had switched to some Role Playing games for a while, but I can't imagine that he won't return to his first love sometime.

Re: This post is a placeholder for a real introduction
Thank guys for getting me on board.  (For whatever, the site kept flagging my emails as spam when I attempted to sign up for an account.)

It's good to know that there are folks who are still interested in keeping the Starshatter coding project alive.  For a moment, after starshattermods.com went kaput, I thought SS was doomed to fade into gaming obscurity.  But thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case.   :D

Re: This post is a placeholder for a real introduction
Hello all,

It's heart warming to see that the StarShatter community is being revived. I look forward with ravenous appetite to see new features in the game and especially a more versatile mission creator now that it's open source. :)

Here are some samples of my Freespace port to StarShatter I did a few years back.
