I just uploaded the scanned original novella, with the correct page enumeration for the copy protection ! Enjoy !

Does any1 know how to get the novella's original page enumeration for the copy protection? The novella pdf doesn't seem to be the right set-up. Copy protection keeps booting me out. The example given by the protection "Raised" doesn't line up with the novella either...

The Compact Cassette visible on the screenshot brings me to the following blog entry: 50 Jahren wurde die Kassette auf der IFA vorgestellt
So, what's the connection between Compact Cassette and pencil (Age test)...

Mother of Holy Jesus Christ in Heaven ....

I, quite literally, almost wept when I saw this.

I had ZERO idea it even existed!

This stuns me more than finding out there's a boxmac version of "Captain Blood"!

The wonderful Argonaut Software and, arguably, THE greatest implementation of
the flatshade polygonal aesthetic ....

I thought the election of Pope Francis I [a JESUIT, by the way]
was the big news today -- this tops it by 100x!!

Happily, however, I just got a CIB copy off Ebay. Disk images great, and box and docs are perfect.

. . . except for the PACKING TAPE that the seller used to seal the actual software box. GAH!!

Starglider II for the Mac is listed in the MicroProse catalog that came with my copy of Railroad Tycoon as a MicroPlay title (along with Carrier Command and UMS II: Nations at War). It is similarly listed in the IBM-compatible section of the catalog, but not in the Amiga, Atari ST, or C64 sections.

I do not see the original Starglider listed in any section under any brand name (MicroProse, MicroPlay, Paragon, or Legend).

Could it be possible that Rainbird worked a deal with MicroProse after the success of the original Starglider?

I actually had a copy of Starglider II once upon a time that I picked up secondhand at a thrift store in Bozeman, Montana in about 1994. I was expecting to enjoy it as much as Space Rogue (one of my all time favorites).

Sadly, I didn't.

Shock I'm just amazed to see an old Rainbird game show up on the Mac Garden; these things are hard to find nowadays. As to the version number, there's probably only this one version; these games were not published in great numbers for the Mac and updates are unlikely to have been made.
