News: Paul Reiche and Fred Ford want to continue the story they started when they created Star Control II — The Ur-Quan Masters. «Happy days and jubilation!» «But wait!» «There is something wrong here... something which makes my sheath retract and my talons ooze.» «Please, Captain, we need your help!»

I have no information on Australian local ebook systems. In addition to Amazon and Kobo, I know that both Groombridge Log and Eternal Doctrine are available in the Finnish Elisa kirja service. Perhaps there is something similar in Australia? I know that at least Walmart sells them as ebooks.

Since Kindle as a whole is not supported in Finland, I myself have simply created a US Amazon account and purchased everything from there. I don't know if that works for you, though.

If you are willing but unable to purchase the book, you can read the PDF for free and make a donation via Paypal. That also works if you just want the author to shut up and take your money

Just follow the link, find the paypal button and send him your gratitude.

Hi, I'd like to purchase the Groombridge Log ebook by Tiberium, but neither the Australian Amazon nor the Australian Kobo store will sell it to me. And you can't buy ebooks from the US Amazon or Kobo stores from Australia without using a VPN and making a bogus US account.

What other stores is it available at, that I might be able to purchase it for my eReader? I really want to support Tiberium, rather than just reading the free version.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Another update is that UQM/libsdl for Android really hates being compiled for arm64.
I finally found out that this was the reason why my builds were freaking out on my Pixel.

Maybe at some point down the line I can fix that but for the time being 32bit builds work on the current arm64 processors so I won't mess with it.

EDIT:

Good news, Android will have crossplay support for Net Melee.

Ha, that's actually really cool  Grin

I did mean Clang, not gcc.  Actually I'm surprised android uses Clang which is primarily backed by apple.  Go figure.

We want aliens this time!  And none of that anthropomorphic grey bobblehead-people shit. No, it must be starfish aliens, with full production values.

Hmm.. maybe one of you guys could 3D model starfish aliens? I can find plenty of Arilou-looking aliens, but not much Orz-looking aliens.

A reason to spend bilions on space programs and space military!

Let me just appropriately re-arrange my stock portfolio first...


If you want to install a global police state you are going to have to do a lot better than remarketing global terrorism and global warming.  Been there, feared that.

That would be much easier to fake than the alleged moonlanding...
Just make one of the voyagers send fake signals back to us.....
(or throw a minisatellite with the next launch into a very high orbit).
Boom!

You caught me. I'll be bundling the little mascot in disgustingly overpriced collector's editions.  Cool

But in seriousness I appreciate the continued support! Smiley
