Hi, I'm not aware of the game being legitimately on any CD like that, is there a publisher? was this maybe from ebay (most games on ebay are counterfeit tbh).
The latest version of the game is 2.41 which has some bug fixes, so maybe its worth trying the demo first to see if its more stable for you.

Hmmmm, its possible, I bought it from a guy in town, where he got it I dont know... he may have got it from e-bay? But in the install folder it has a link to Globalstar software... I took a look at the site and dint see tne game listed in there but???
Well its probably best I just get the game from you, your probably right some one may have hacked it just to make a buck on other peoples work.
My job has been a challange here lately, I only get a flat 250 a week now untill ??? or I get another job, BUT I'll just get the game from you when I get the $ I can send.
That way I can really enjoy the game to its fullest and how you designed it to run.
Thanks
Dave

I have also purchased the retail version, thinking it the same as the version on this site...I would like to request the 2.41 version, and have sent an email to the address given at the beginning of this thread titled 'RE: welcome to 'Positech Games'

Thank you in advance for your attention.

I also got the cd with Starship Tycoon and Airport Tycoon on the same one. It came in a box with a number of other games set up in a similar manner, most two per CD.

All of them are Tycoon style games, many of them of low quality with Starship Tycoon and Railroad Tycoon 2 being exceptions.

I remember picking this pack up from a Gamestop in the US (Or one of the similar stores that used to be around before Gamestop bought them all up.)

I don't have the box anymore, or I'd give you more information from that.

If you say it's not a legitimate copy then I'm tempted to buy it again anyway. It's a good game. But I'll give the demo a try to see if it's a bit more stable than this CD copy I've got. It's got the same instabilities that people on here have mentioned.

I just acquired the retail version of this game a few days ago, via a friend that bought it for me, new, from Amazon.com.
It is v2.26.
I am interested in getting an update for it if possible, as the bugs/crashes are a minor but ever present annoyance.
Other than the crashes and being unable to find ships for sale, it is a good game, and I don't recall having problems when I had the demo installed a little while back.

I will get an email sent out shortly.
