Installing the Game

After installing the game to a Windows 10 machine, you might find that the game immediately closes after launching.

In this case try right-clicking on the icon, choose Properties, then choose Advanced, then check the box for "Run as Administrator".

Downtime Today

The Starport servers will be down today for a while, possibly a few hours, while we UPGRADE to new server hardware!

You don't have to reinstall Starport on your machine, just keep trying and the game will be back up as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience!

Re: ** Suggested Game Updates/fixes **

-If you can't run fullscreen, then your Windows OS is failing to support the older protocols of DirectX. If it's really slow in full screen mode, it means your Windows and Video Card Driver are packing the image sprites into system RAM rather than VRAM (video ram). This makes it 40 or 50 times slowe...

I think it's an interesting idea, but it wouldn't be much different from servers currently offered. Probably not enough to justify a new galaxy at this point.

Maybe it's an intermittent problem with your internet connection. Try typing /ping when the problem is happening, and see if you have any packetloss, or if your latency is over 200ms.

Sometimes this can be caused by an input device attached to your computer, such as a joystick, gamepad, or driving wheel. If that's the case you can try either unplugging the device, or making it work with Starport in the Options screen.
