Hello.
JA1 community (if its possible to call it such name overall) is in pretty non-existent state by now. Some info scattered some different places, and also quality of that info is often pretty incorrect and\or obsolete. I dropped initial idea of editing jawiki or write answers to posts scattered for example here, as it will require a really huge amount of typing (say jawiki info is often wrong beside some tables, so it would actually mean "write the whole wiki about ja1") with huge chance of it being in total vain, due to high probability of non-existence of ones who do read it anyway. So i decided to open that topic instead, so if anyone actually do have something to ask about that game, ill try to provide some info (in no way i can claim what i can answer everything, despite having some access to code, but after doing some google research i had to realize what in some slight case of somebody actually being interested in ja1, asking me about should be a most optimal way in a current sad state the Game's info is present online), so i will save time for myself answering stuff, that is not actual anymore for one, who initially asked about it, while still able to try to help somebody who still care with something actual for him/her.
Just to give some estimates about that game benchmarks good player should be aspiring to on impossible without any save/loads beside actual game sessions(or surpass them ideally): 1 day to simply win a game; 8 days to win it with all captured sectors (with using loading should be about 6 or even 5 i guess).

JA1 was an old game 17 years ago and a pretty niche game. I remember back then there were like only a couple of websites that had any decent info. Patusco I think had a guide, too.

I am currently remaking JA Galaxy into the info portal it used to be (considering there are hardly any JA news to report, JAG being a news portal is kinda useless). Original JAG had little to no JA1 info though so that section will need to be written from scratch. If you have any good articles or guides I would be happy to have them featured there.

Its hardly mid 90-s now, so sitting down and writing a 100+ pages guide to old niche game that nobody ever will read seems as a waste of time for me now. If it suddenly turned to be what ja1 info is still needed to somebody - we will see, sure, this topic mainly to see if anyone is do care still.

I agree, nobody will read 100 pages guide on JA1 (or JA2 for that matter). But a few tips and tricks would go a long way.
