1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Unsolved Mysteries on: July 02, 2004, 12:40:32 pm
I can't believe we had a 4 page thread over whether the slylandro had a speaker/satellite or not.

My $.02, everyone should stop thinking so realistically and start think science fictionaly (emphasis on fiction) If we start questioning something simple like how the slylandro are able to communicate, we must as well start talking about why the Arilou can change through dimensions, why the translator only has trouble with the Orz, and can translate flawlessly 10 other alien languages. If a device that intensifies the suns energy takes down a slave shield, wouldn't the sun that the planet is orbiting eventually take down a slave shield as well?

Let's face it, there's bound to be illogical stuff in a game like this, because it's not real. And who's to say that just because we aren't able to accomplish something as humans, that it's impossible.  

Arilou can change dimensions because they've been civilized for tens of thousands of years before humans, therefore hava MUCH superior technology. The translator only has trouble with the Orz because, despite the fact that it is an excellent translator that has all the known languages of the universe programmed in, no words in English can accurately describe what the Orz are trying to say. Why the shield wasn't knocked own was already explained.

Despite the fact that it this game is science fiction, it is a damn accurate science fiction. My $.02, is that this thread is an entertaining read and you should shut up and let it continue. It's not hurting anyone, and people are just trying to have fun with some whacked out discussions.


Are you allowed to swear in these forums? This post is horribly weak without profanity...

Bah, when I finally get around to trying to download the game, it goes down. I can't wait til it gets up again.

Some of the voice acting sucks, (Pkunk, anyone?) but most voices are quite good, I think.
4  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Kernel failed to load? on: May 29, 2004, 07:42:01 am
The Ur-Quan Masters had been working great, but whenever I try to load it up lately, I get a message in the DOS section that says "kernel failed to load". I'm quite sure I didn't change anything on my computer, and reinstilation doesn't work. Any suggestions?
