Not really necessary. SS1 has been freely available for some time.

Still, I wouldn't mind seeing it on a site like GOG just to make more people aware of it.

Have you tried SS Portable? (above link) You can run it in higher resolutions than the original version. It makes a significant difference.

Is that package good to run on Win 7 with no tweaking required? Prepackaged builds with DosBox can be very hit and miss (even those from GOG). Many need to be customized for your own computer.

Very little tweaking. I haven't played it in awhile, but I remember it being pretty simple. I haven't tried it in Win 7 64 yet.

SSP runs on Windows XP/Vista/7 via the included DOSbox emulation. On XP it can also run outside an DOSbox emulation (NTVDM).

SS1 works great in Win7 x64, i use the one from systemshock.org, looks acceptable in higher resolution and it obviously plays a lot better with mouse look, i remember i used to hate the controlls.

The 14th of Feb seem to be a busy day:
- release of System Shock 2 on GoG
- Groupees Bemine anniversary (with Two worlds 2, and one of the Eschalon Books)
- Rebellion revealing a new (full, not DLC) Nazi Zombie Army Sniper Elite game (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/n…rse-video.html)

Brain/wallet overload!

Wonder if they release SS1.
Control setting is strange, like flying simulators or something.
I was able to beat Ultima Underworld despite strange controls.
Now I need to remind what to do after three months delay. Similiar situation in BG2 results few wasted hours to remind what to do.

Release trailer… http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature…&v=a3__6BknDHc

I feel guilty only paying $9.99 for this game.

Any first impressions regarding performance and graphics on Win XP/7?

They also mention on the page co-op; how does that work? Is it LAN?

First impressions that are not mine - graphics has glitches on (and only on) Intel GPUs. There is a solution on GOG forums to that issue however, so not a biggie.

On the other hand, we're at RPGwatch and I don't think any of us uses Intel GPU.

Many thanks. Many laptops have Intel GPUs and I was planning on playing it on my old laptop with Intel gma950 . I will look at the GoG forums.

There are mods that improve the graphics a lot. I recommend those. The old link I have to shtup no longer works though.

Ah, found this one, it's been rehosted.

http://www.shtupmod.net/

Also this site is a good one for mods/fixes/etc:

you forgot http://www.systemshock.org/ which i would say is the best site for mods since it hosts all the current ones, afaik.

The site is really overloaded right now though..

No I didn't forget. I never used that site, since it's not very user friendly.

you're missing out on a lot of mods though, it has always been the no.1 mod site for SS2.. Not very user friendly? I don't see what's so hard with going to the mod forum and download the mods, can't get much easier than that

Yes it could actually be organized rather than a bunch of random posts to a forum. Reality check!

lol, it takes ~30 seconds to read the 2 pages of topics in the mod forum. I mean it's hardly Skyrim Nexus with tens of thousands of mods. All mods are also tagged, so if you search for graphics you'll get a list of all graphics mods.. but whatever.
