Title: 5.0 locking up at start
Post by: Lordhelmos on February 21, 2006, 09:12:47 am
Im running on XP right now and the first time I ran the game it went fine.  I do have a openGL support card but its integrated into my chipset.  When I ran the game with the openGL features on it totally locked up and the launcher shut down.  Now I can't even start the game to get into the in-game menu to tweak things back to the way they were when it worked.  Any suggestions to fix this prob will be appeciated.  Also im not an expert coder so laymans terms would help.

Also what are the default controls for the game without any changing?  It doesnt say on the faq.  Out of the hundreds of keys on my keyboard it would help to kno what does what in-game before I start messing with commands to try and change them

Look here (http://uqm.stack.nl/wiki/The_Ur-Quan_Masters_Technical_FAQ#How_do_I_change_my_settings.3F) on how to change your settings on the command line.

The default controls are listed in the manual file which comes with the game.

I'm having the same problems. The game worked last night, but this morning it won't launch. I've tried to change the command line, I've reinstalled the game, but the problem remains. I've re-installed v.4.0 and it works. Is there a specific file that stores the display settings that I can change so I can bypass the ingame menu?

For 0.4.0, you're out of luck.  For 0.5.0, there should be a file "uqm.cfg" in the same directory as keys.cfg.
