1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Groombridge Log, fresh from print! on: July 03, 2014, 09:24:19 am
I'd like a copy Smiley

The version you have in your hand is just a "for me alone" creation and not an official "I'm going to sell it" version?

Naismith says they're looking forward to the next part.. it's not finished yet?

Also, is it a copyright issue only if you make money on it? At the very least, could you just make it available for us to "buy" the printing and all you're doing is supplying the content?  Thus you make no money from it.

Though really.. since the PDF is available.. I'd rather buy it with an opportunity to get you a little income from it Smiley

Such an option has actually been present since UQM 0.4: -C (or --configdir). See the manual for more information.

Ahh, great. I was playing around with -n I think and couldn't get it to work. It's working the way I want now and I'm now I'm a fully happy camper Smiley

How about finally including an option to save configuration data, and saved games, to a custom location?

I take the game to various places on my flash drive, and have to copy everything to proper directory (and then make sure to back it up before leaving as well as deleting data if it's not my computer).

That method works for the first category, but not the others. Scroll further down the list when it appears sorted.
5  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Mineral List on: February 13, 2013, 05:13:14 am
So I wasn't happy with the sorting options of the wiki page (being able to sort by category, and have it remain alphabetical by mineral).

As a result, I decided to make an Excel copy of it (2k10).

http://home.sprynet.com/~asrial/StarControl/Full%20Mineral%20List.xlsx

Also, FYI, the text in row A is a link to UQM and the text in row B is a link to the wiki page listed by Elestan.

[EDIT: I added an additional sorting column so there's a new version uploaded.]

Perfect. Thank you Elestan Smiley
7  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Mineral List on: February 12, 2013, 12:39:21 pm
Anyone have, or able to acquire from the source code, a complete mineral list with rankings?

IE: bromine, astatine and iodine are all precious (or maybe corrosive, hard to tell for me)
8  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Remix Pack 4 -- Additional Precursors Releases on: March 06, 2012, 11:29:24 pm
Were these songs ever intended to be used as a remix pack? Can they be used as a remix pack?

Going through and updating some things for a possible play through in the future.

9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / UQM 6.2+ on: August 03, 2010, 09:23:24 am
I've seen a lot of things mentioned since 6.2, but is there going to be an actual release of a new version?
10  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Saved Game Lost (again) on: August 10, 2008, 02:57:38 am
You certainly took an aggressive stance in your response, especially when my recommendation was just something I spent all of 30 seconds coming up with.

Anyways.

.

My response to your first 5 points: This is easy to work around. I'm sure you guys can come up with something.

My response to your 6th point: This game is the only one where I've lost saved data because of where it was stored.

My response to your 7th point: Why are we discussing the registry? The saved data isn't stored in the registry.

..and my response to your 8th point: Thanks for the tip.  I'll look into whatever that is.

.

My whole point isn't about HOW or WHERE the data SHOULD be stored, but that the "default" location is BAD.  Backing up the entire DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS directory, while guaranteed to get almost all a user's important data, is a waste of time and space when 90% of that data (which can be quite large) is junk.

UT2k4 saves it's configuration data (and downloaded data) to the installation location.

Command and Conquer 3 saves it's saved data to the user's My Documents.

The Red Alert 3 beta saves it's saved data to the user's My Documents.

Guild Wars saves it's Screenshots and Templates to the installation location.

World of Warcraft saves it's Screenshots to the installation location.

I AM seeing OTHER data for RA3 and C&C3 in the Application Data directory, but it's nothing earth shattering like a saved game.

You guys are eager to make sure this game works perfectly for alot of different situations. Well, I presented you with a situation where it did not work all that great (on two separate occasions). Either take the feedback and maybe spend a minute thinking about it, or just post some random "this is why that's a stupid idea" points.

My solution?

2 minutes creating a personalized XCOPY batch file that copies the directory before and after I load the game.

In fact, I actually found the thread I created last time...

September of 2004.

Time to create a batch file that copies it before and after running the game.
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Saved Game Lost (again) on: August 09, 2008, 06:35:51 am
Once again I lost a saved game because I forgot it was stored in an unfriendly place.

Again I propose that all saved data be stored someplace better (such as the directory the game is installed to in a SAVED DATA subdirectory).

You're 4 years too late Cheesy
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Planets Random or Not? on: August 15, 2007, 08:28:26 pm
Okay, I think I got you.

Each time you start a new game, the planets are going to be the same (with regards to planet X always having a stockpile of gold and life, as an example).

It was when they MADE the game that this attempt at randomness was done.

..and I like making my own list because it gives the game that feeling of exploration.
