Or don't you use the speech pack?

Speech pack? Huh

It's hard to take the best of both worlds sometimes.

I dig you.

There is no such feature. What did you have in mind for the speech with your idea?

My ideal is to be able to read each page of text at my own pace, and press a key to go on to the next.  That's all.

I don't like having to page back if I'm not fast enough to read a particular page for whatever reason, and I don't like paging ahead if I read faster than I'm "supposed" to, because I often hit the key just as the system also pages ahead, thus turning over two pages at once.

It's a minor complaint, but as a huge fan of the original game, I'm disappointed to see the interface take a step backwards in this cool new version.  In the original, "minimum" text speed was infinite.  You could go out to lunch, take a trip to Monte Carlo, get married and have a few kids, and come back to your keyboard to find that it was still on the same page of text until you told it to page forward.  The new way gets on my nerves.

Thanks for asking; I appreciate it.

Appreciated. Smiley

I played a bit anyway and am getting used to the interface.  It still bugs me, but I can live with it.

Hmmm, thanks.  Actually I did put that in and it doesn't seem to do anything. Cry

Here's exactly what my shortcut target looks like:

"C:\Games\SC2 - The Ur-Quan Masters\uqm.exe" -f --scroll pc

I am annoyed by the little scrolling cursor underneath the communication window.  I would like it to stop.  I just want to be able to press a key when I am done reading the current text, as I was able to do in the original game by slowing chat speed to minimum.

Is there any feature like this in UQM?

Thanks in advance
