Sometimes it starts in the DosBox, sometimes it doesn't. (WIN 10) Screen remains black, Nor is it German.

This is MASTER OF ORION, it s old, it s just magic ! But, we still have the question about the ship name's after a few turn, and no notice for the responce. Steam ! you have ti fix that.

MoO1: Best master of orion ever ! Oldi but superb in many ways ! MoO 2: ok, but has to much micromanagement MoO 3: Well let´s don´t talk abaout that crap... MoO : ok, but AI is crap and real time battles are crap too ... und jetzt in schwäbisch: ha woisch, des isch subbär !

Good ^^ not much to say about this maste of Orion enfaite, I discovered the 3 old MOO thanks to the reboot that I very much liked. I liked MOO 2 that I tested before the MOO 1 and I had really liked the game, but suddenly I have not much to say about MOO 1 because it is the same as MOO 2 but with less functionality, less clear, less beautiful and less immersive. I have not even finished the part I had launched because it is just MOO 2 in less well but knowing that MOO 1 is released before MOO 2... I can't say it's a bad game, on the contrary ^^

Master of Orion 1 Joa, to the Game itself I can't say anything as I haven't played it yet. However, I have two major Criticisms: Performance: The Game runs in the external Program "DosBox" and runs very unstable on Windows 10. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't start. You can't make graphics and Sound Settings. Furthermore, the Game has crashed me a few times. Language: The Shop page says that the Game can be played in German. That is not the Case. You have no Way to change the Language on Steam or in the Game itself. To My Knowledge, there is only one English Version of MoO1. You should be clear about this before you buy the Game here on Steam:-no Settings-sometimes crashes (on newer Operating systems)-needs to be restarted more often until it runs flawlessly-is only playable in English Should you not have anything Then likes to strike. I still rate the Game as positive as I haven't played it yet and there's Talk of technical, not playful, problems here.
