    Project: Starfighter for the Pandora is now ready! You can download it from the Repo at:


    http://repo.openpand....92759361038745


    Project: Starfighter is a space shooter originally intended for the Amiga which was released for the PC instead in 2003. If you haven't bothered playing it before, you should play this port, because for all its flaws, it's a very cool game. It follows the story of Chris Bainfield, who is a single rebel fighting against a galactic empire known as WeapCo. You need to upgrade your ship, gain new allies, and start uprisings with the ultimate goal of defeating WeapCo and freeing the galaxy.


    Enjoy! :) And if there are any problems, please do let me know.


    Due to legal concerns, version 1.2.P.3 removed the music from the PND. If you have the music, you can re-add it by creating a new starfighter.pak file and putting it in Starfighter's appdata folder. Doing this is relatively simple:


    First, download the source code, which can be found here: http://www.mediafire...6djo1o3obr3yqkc


    Extract and put the music files in a directory called "music" in the source directory. Then open the makefile (it's called "makefile", in the source directory) and add "music/*" to DATAFILES (which is on line 11). Finally, make sure you have csound and vorbis-tools installed, and do the following from the source directory:



    Code:
    
    cd sound
    
    make
    
    cd ..
    
    make starfighter.pak
    
    

    starfighter.pak will be created in the source directory, and you can copy it into the appdata folder.


    As an aside, you can also copy the starfighter.pak distributed with older versions of Project: Starfighter into the appdata folder, if you prefer the older style.

    This is pretty fun! A bit like defender meets sinistar.

    FYI: you can skip the intro sequence with the "start/alt" button.
