I actually wanted the game to end after some missions and was quite happy when it did. The biggest helper I found, that enabled me the game completion was when I discovered that you can end dialogue instantly by hitting "esc" key.
And as the plot was dull and linear the whole "click on all possible dialogue options before next mission" became less irritating.
As for the simulation the missions were fine but nothing special.
The only really good thing I found is that it triggered me to replay Archimedean Dynasty which is AWESOME.
Yeah, replaying this game after years, and seeing that this is nothing more than missions with dialogs in between.

Even the ship upgrade system is dull.
I loved Archimedian Dynasty... I've lost my disc, though.
I wish they'd do Archimedian Dynasty. I always have trouble getting it working. Had it running on Linux without sound once! :P
Well, here's your problem:
The series was created in german and the dialogues in the german versions are way better. They make a big part of the immersion not only because they pack more emotion but the voices also fit to the character portraits.

I wish GOG would include content for other languages, especially original ones.
Yeah, Schleichfahrt still had the best atmosphere in this series. Awesome game.

I got this to run using D-Fend Reloaded, still having issues with the joystick though, but it does run with sound too. :)
Aye, same here... I love D-Fend :D Thanks bud

This should fix the Joystick issue:
- write "timed=false"into the dosbox.conf (without the "")
- delete the "joystick.cfg" in the archimedean Dynasty (aka Schleichfahrt) folder

My joystick still drifts to the right lower corner, but only a little. Maybe you guys have more luck.

Hey thanks for that Lorzius! ;) I will give it a try

EDIT: That worked a treat Lorzius! Many thanks!
