You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Way back in 1998, strategy gamers were getting excited about the original Laser Squad game on the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. Though the game featured just a handful of levels, it set the template for a series that would eventually mutate into the X-COM games, the latest of which has only just released. At some point along the way, strategy gamers were treated to this long forgotten title that featured online play via e-mail, no less. Although the online multiplayer has long since shut down, you can still enjoy this title by taking on family members in “hot seat” mode.
Laser Squad Nemesis should install without any issues on a modern PC. Simply insert the CD into your computers optical drive, click on the notification that appears then follow the on-screen prompts. If the installation does not start automatically, explore the contents of the CD-ROM in Computer/This PC and open the InstallerSelection.exe file manually.
Take note of the installation directory during the installation (on our copy it was C:\Program Files (x86)\Just Play\Laser Squad Nemesis by default) as you will need to know this when you come to install the patch.
You can install the latest patch for the game by using the link here. Note that the patch does not automatically detect the games installation directory, so you may need to enter it manually.
Playing the game
Once the game is installed and patched, you can launch it from your Start menu like normal. For best results, start the game and then choose “Non-subscriber” and then “Sound/Video options”. There are a small number of visual quality settings you can configure. For the best visual quality, use the settings listed below.
For some reason you must set these options each time you play the game. Note that on our Windows 10 machine we were not able to use full-screen mode as this caused the game to crash.
