We used to have a few simple games on the old site, but after Tim left, they were never updated.

Tim?


 


Also, do you know what they were called? Maybe I can find them. I think there was one called "Odo's Investigation".

I'm going to try to collect some Star Trek flash games and put them together on a simple site.


When finished it will be at www.startrekgames.yolasite.com.

Tim Gaskill - he ran this site a few years ago.  I could e-mail in something and would get a very quick response from him.


 


As for the games, I remember a trek checkers game and a word search game that and I think some simple investigation game where we help Odo.  I think there was a 4th, but can't remember for sure.

If you could contact him and get him to send me the flash files (if he still has them), that would be awesome!


Please try, Bam-Bam!


 


My e-mail is scsecretary.sjro+stg@gmail.com, or he could share it with dropbox. Either way would be greatly appreciated!

Tim is no longer with Star Trek and hasn't been for quite a while.  When CBS Interactive took over the site, they let him go.  I don't have any way of contacting him any more.


Sorry.

Oh, one thing you might want to try is using the internet archive (archive.org) and see if you can find the games.

I looked in the archive, and believe it or not I was able to obtain odo.dcr. However, I cannot open it because the format is archaic and is not used by flash player anymore.


 


I have been in contact with starbase63 over at Star Trek Logs (who gives you his regards Bam-Bam), and he says,


I can ask [about the games], but if they were posted on the old st.com, they are likely either gone forever, or still the property of Paramount. Much of the old site was ditched when CBS completely rebooted it in it's current form which has never worked right since Day 1. Larry [Nemecek] has told me that much of the old info is safely stored somewhere (not sure with whom, possibly Marc [Wade]) but I will ask just in case.


So, its looking pretty bleak for finding these and getting them to work. However, I'm still going to keep trying to get the file I found to work.


Also, HOLY BLAST FROM THE PAST, BATMAN!!!!!!!

Good old SB63!  If there's anyone that can help out, it's him!


 


And I knew I was forgetting one of the games, but just couldn't remember which one.  It's been a long time.

I'm thinking an old version of Flash Director could open the file, and then convert it to .swf? Not sure where I would get that, though.

I dont know if anyone has though of this, but you could add a chat box to each profile page. Say I want to chat with 22123magic, I go to his page and leave a chat. this would have to be agreed on by both to prevent spam, like:


I click "chat with 22123magic"


22123magic sees "Quantummath wants to chat with you. y/n" and clicks yes or no.


After chatting, they click something like "End chat"

You mean a PM system? I wish they still had that.

To answer QuantumMath's question at st.com about the PM system, CBS eliminated it when the new site was put together. We used to have a normal PM system with the old site, but I think CBS just wanted all conversation out on the open board, and nothing "behind their backs." It really cut down on communication between members in many ways, with the PM system you could make better contact with people you wanted to get to know, exchange email addys, addresses or even phone numbers with others, something not safe to do with the out-in-the-open messages they set up for people's Profile pages.
