Title: Dreaded SC2 Bug
Post by: Stanz on May 31, 2003, 08:57:54 pm
Ok, Its not technically a bug but it is just as bad as one...

It was part of star control 2's general coding so it is the same in this game... When your in hyperspace and you try to go somehwhere but you get caught in some fights and then you are stuck and cant make it anywhere because theres already someone waiting to fight you... There should be a way to avoid this because it just, to put it simply, RUINS the game and you have to load a new one.

Maybe you could use a device and someone comes to talk to you and you can tell him to escort you back home or something... doesn't sound the best idea but there needs to be someway around it.

You know, the cloaking device would have been one way around this one. Just pop on the cloaking device and slip out. Hmm, I don't remember, but was it possible to activate the portal spawner quicly before the next fight? Maybe not. (I need to actually go back and play the dang game.)

You can't get it, but you *can* portal out of there because the game pauses when you go the devices menu, so its really not that bad, just have a talk with the Arilou.

It takes a while to get that far anyway, and your going slow through the ilrath space to get the ship reck (i think) and then you get to arilou... But thats not the best thing to do at the beggining and itd be alot easier to just make it a bit easier to get out of it... Like when you run away from a battle... They down respawn in the exact same place a few seconds after...
