So, I finally joined the community
Feel free to move this topic to where it needs to be if it is not in the right place. The layout of this forum is a bit different from what I am used to.
I first ran into this game when it came as a demo with a game I had bought. I forgot what the game was, but I remember playing the demo over and over again as I really found the design of the robots interesting as none of them were humanoid unless you count the gorilla. Anyway, years passed, and then I remembered this game again. I was surprised at how few people knew of it and as it seemed to be abandonware, I downloaded the .iso of it off of a torrent client and installed it in 2012. I had fun playing it, but I ran into some issues with Windows 7 at the time. My computer died shortly after, so that was the end of that.
Now that I have a different computer, I have downloaded the game again from the forum in the form of the 1.5 patch. What amazes me is that even though the graphics of the map textures are rather low resolution, the graphics of the units as well as the buildings are surprisingly good for a 20-year old game. If I had one request, and it is a minor one, I wish the campaign would actually let you choose which one of the four available colors you could be for the duration of the campaign. Plus, the pathfinding of the units is not the best, but that is a well-known problem in this community.
I realize that I might be rather late to the party in terms of this forum as most of the posts here are at least a few years old, but hopefully things are not winding down just yet.
Hi. I had basically the same experience. I had the demo which I played quite a lot which came on Turok 2 CD. I liked the machine designs, their voices and colorful graphics. It is one of the first games I installed myself and first RTS game I ever played. I downloaded the full version from the old forums in 2008, but I actually have not finished it until 2 years ago. It is a very hard game and I probably would not be able to finish it if I played when I was a kid.
There is not much activity here, but you can check out the discord community. I'm not a fan of it, but unfortunately forums are not popular these days.
