Welcome to www.lasersquad.org.uk
This site is dedicated to Laser Squad - created by Jullian Gollop over 30 years ago, and yet still as playable today as then. Many of today's games take concepts and elements from Laser Squad which was in turn based on an earlier game - RebelStar.
The more eagle-eyed of you with good memories may have noticed a change in the URL. I used to own the LaserSquad.org domain, but the company I used to register it went bust and I was unable to renew it in time. The company that took over it's ownership wanted over £100 for me to register it again which I could not afford. Hence the move to LaserSquad.org.uk.
I've added new player options. Use the default method on your computer to get a popup menu (ie right mouse button in windows) that allows you to read the briefing, turning on/off on-screen controls, muting sound, adjusting volume, going back from the unit equipment selection screen to the armour selection screen, and settings which allows you to select your on-screen control layout. This version was last updated on 11th October 2020.
The 'Return to Moonbase' scenario was one I found on the web. It was written by Johan von Nameh and play-tested by too many people to mention here, but the information is listed in the .txt file that came with the origional scenario.
I've also found some other scenarios (Mafia, BluePlanet, RescueRangers, TheAliens, Amazones, CoalCorp, Biowar, DeadCity, HostileTakeover, Saboteurs, The Assasins2, and TheMelterSquad). I've yet to figure out who wrote them, but have heard that one of the authors might be Kaz (Was this the same person that wrote demos for the spectrum?) and would like to ask permission of the authors before publishing any conversions. If you know who created them I'd be realy gratefull to know who they were so I could contact them. The other problem with these extra scenarios is that they don't always follow the origional Laser Squad method of how scenario data works so don't convert easily and will take longer to convert than the origional scenarios.
If you spot any bugs (either crashes or in differences from the origional version) please let me know what they were and when they happened so that I might be able to fix them. Steve Godrich spotted bugs with spotting enemy units, dropping items, and explosions, all of which I've now been able to fix. Jukka Paatero spotted a couple more bugs with explosions that I've also been able to fix. Thanks to Craig Turner who's spotted a bug in the sound system that I've since fixed with his help.
I have now implemented a bug reporting system. If a crash happens that the system catches you'll see a message with the text details. If you email me with this text I will try to fix any bug reported within a week or so, so if you get this message again, please try again later.
