Star Trek 25th Anniversary Crack/Installation Utility
Programmed by R. Bubba Magillicutty


PURPOSE: Patches STARTREK.EXE. After the mock battle, the Enterprise is
ordered to go to a certain system, but the Star Map doesn't have any names on
it. After running the patch, you can pick any system as a destination. You
can no longer travel to an incorrect system and shoot it out with various
enemies, but this should be a small trade-off.

USAGE: You can run STARFIX either before or after the game is installed.
Just type "STARFIX" in the same directory as STARTREK.EXE and it will
automatically be patched.


PURPOSE: Allows you to install Star Trek from the hard drive instead of
having to install from floppy. STARINST.COM executes INST.EXE, modifying it
as it runs. Installation still takes an unreasonable amount of time since
most of the time is used for decompression, but at least you won't have to
bother unzipping to floppies.

USAGE: Unzip the ST25TH-x zips one at a time to a temp directory. Rename
INTRPLAY.CMP to INTRPLAY.x, where 'x' is the same number as the zip (and
disk.) Then unzip STARFIX to the same directory. Use the SUBST command to
change the temp directory to A: or B:. Change to the substituted drive (A:
or B:) and run STARINST. Answer the questions about your system, them go out
and watch a movie while it installs the first disk. When it asks for another
disk, just hit return. Make sure you renamed all the files correctly, or it
will abort in the middle and your time will have been wasted.

EXAMPLE: I had the ST25TH zips in C:\DL and unzipped them to C:\TEMP.


REN *.CMP *.1

REN *.CMP *.2

REN *.CMP *.3

REN *.CMP *.4

REN *.CMP *.5


After installation you can delete everything in the PATCHES directory.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
