Title: A Noob's Super-Melee Questions.
Post by: ebonrat on June 24, 2012, 07:15:15 pm
I'll just make it quick.

a- How do I remove ships from my roster entirely, NOT just change them?
b- 2 player melee through our local network isn't working.  Help!
c- when I'm at "Change Ship" in melee, it says A-select Ship, and C- detailed information about the ship on either side of the selection screen.  What madness?


Thanks for helping!

Delete key.

You need to forward the port you're using. How exactly you do this depends on your router. Try doing a web search for something like `<your router's manufacturer> router port forward`.

c- when I'm at "Change Ship" in melee, it says A-select Ship, and C- detailed information about the ship on either side of the selection screen.  What madness?

UQM is based on the 3DO version of SC2, which has a controller with buttons "A", "B", and "C". That's just a relic of that history.

I've always wondered if there was a way to access that "detailed information"

There's a mod for this, IIRC, because it isn't possible in vanilla UQM (though I tend to think it is possible now in 0.7; I'm not sure).

In any case, it's not that interesting. Just a video of the ship spinning with a voice telling you the name of the ship and listing its weapons. Hardly "detailed" at all.

If it's not in UQM, there's a video on Youtube that compiles all of them (try searching under "SC2 ship videos"). It tells you less than you'd know from taking the ship for a spin in SuperMelee, but if nothing else it's interesting from the perspective of seeing the official 3D representation of the ships (which doesn't always agree with the 2D representation or the fan-made 3D renders, especially in the Avatar's case).

Your link appears to have a space at the beginning which causes it to fail.

It is possible now to view the videos without the FMV mod, all it does now is add support for the Crystal Dynamics intro and the 3DO Commercial.
It also plays the story intro after the UQM/Star Control II logo instead of when starting a new game.

Here's a tutorial (http://www.star-control.com/netrouter.php) written on scdb for port forwarding. What you want to do in local area is to set one machine hosting, get the local area IP (I think 90% of routers default to 192.168.X.X), connect to that IP. I'm thinking that you don't need any port forwarding for LAN play assuming you are connected via one router, ie: computer 1 -> router -> computer 2
