Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

I just want someone to noclip through the ceiling and take some plan-view pics of the bridge deck. The Primaguides site has maps of most levels, but none of the bridge and corridors around.

It would be appreciated if there were to be mods for this game.

Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

Played a bit more co-op on the Xbox today. Ended up glitched through several checkpoints on the Gorn planet with a power cell stuck to my feet. Couldn't shoot, jump, crouch, etc. We've had experiences like that on a fairly regular basis. Maybe the PC game is different, but the Xbox version is an unfinished mess.

Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

Could someone explain something for me?
I haven't played it(Star Trek 2012 Game) - but watched the videos. And I noticed how everyone is talking about the "not-so-good"-graphics.
Then there is Star Trek Online. I haven't played it either - watched screenshots and videos - and I wonder how Trek Fans would accept the Star Trek Online graphics, but slander over Star Trek 2012.

So, how does this work? It sort of bugs me for some weeks. I would like to understand the thought process, because I played none of the games.

Star Trek Online is three years old. The standards are lower.

Star trek online is not that hot in the graphics department either, its all DX9 stuff from way back 2009, but i dont think it would be much of a improvement to this new game, both games use old tech but STO is simply more polished and tweaked than this new game.

This new game just did the same thing Legacy did a few years ago, promised much and did not delivery, although in this case they simply got greedy and tried to sell a game well past its value, this game would have faired better overal if they had simply sold it at a budget price of say £25, which is what the game it is, but going for that £40 full retail price has backfired on them somewhat.

Shame really, bugs can be patched and fixed at a later date, but if you dont sell enough copies the publisher is not going to spend money on patches, so they sort of shot themselves in the foot with this one.

What i would not give to have the Trek gaming franchise producing the quailty stuff it was making during the mid 90s.

Sorry to ask again, how do you do big jumps. Still can't get past the chasm in the shuttlebay.

Age aside, I thought STO looked weak because it's an MMO, and massively multiplayer games had to deal with tons of players and stuff going on at the same time, far more than a single or two player game does. Hence, less visual detail.

Push in and hold down the left thumbstick while running forward then jump.

Thanks, but does that mean you reject(?) the STO graphics, despite the knowledge of higher performance cost?

Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

Try, keep trying, then try some more. We weren't even sure it was possible. We got hung up on the door with the missing power cell, assuming something in there would make the chasm easier to get over, but the game was glitching and wouldn't let us install the power cell. Finally my wife tried it solo and sent AI Spock over to where he was supposed to be, and he just hopped across. Eventually we managed to make the jump. (Yes, we were doing running jumps all along.)

No, not at all. Perhaps I chose my words poorly. STO's visuals are fine, and roughly equal to it's contemporaries. ST: TVG's, on the other hand, are a bit lacking compared to many similar games.
