I remember looking at Shadow Empire when it was first released, among other things I was very impressed that a proper manual was published which is a sadly rare thing these days (Paradox and others could learn a thing or two!). I can't recall whether I declined to pick it up due to lack of time or because I had read some poor reviews about bugs or game balance - any comment on the latter as potential issues?

Can second shadow empire. Haven't found bugs or any obvious balance issues I found, but I never got into the lategame or huge empires. The tech advancement, logistics management and general style of the game made it for me.

I am sure you could get it working if you had the right environment set up.

Somewhat ironically, the best and easiest way to get Stars! working on modern windows systems is to create a virtual machine, install Ubuntu (or some other flavor of Linux) on that virtual machine, and then install wine under Ubuntu. There is probably some kind of inception joke in there somewhere...
