I was rummaging through my old archives and came upon a bunch of old 1280x1024 bmp wallpapers and decided to make them more 'up to date'. So here you'll find the official wallpaper for Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri and the expansion pack in a new good looking widescreen and png format.

Runs just fine hedwards... just make sure to use the XP Compatibility patch on the Firaxis website (http://www.firaxis.com/games/game_detail.php?gameid=7&showcon=2)
I've always wanted to play this game, but is it only available via ebay or whatnot?
It'd certainly be a good game for a particular digital distributor to get but i think at the moment that ebay is your only likely source
Ah, the memories. I need to dust off my copy and try it again...I remember my friends doing all sorts of cool stuff with the ability that the game gave you to edit units, like make flying cities.

The game got a budget reprinting (with the expansion) in Europe via SoldOut Software, so it's a lot cheaper than it was a couple of years ago. You get the disc and a PDF manual.

I remember selling a complete copy of Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack for $100 two years ago!

I ended up having to set "ForceOldVoxelAlgorithm=1" in order to get it to work with the patch, but after that I had no problems and no need to set compatibility mode.
