2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / WinXP Error When Leaving Program on: June 14, 2003, 12:57:20 am
I've had the most annoying problem on my new XP system - every time that I exit from the game back into the main menu, I have no option to quit.  And then when I do any sorta alt+tab or Cntrl+F4 the whole machine locks up.  Has anyone else had this problem ?

I'm REALLY fighting the urge to lie about this again  Tongue

The last couple times it came up I sent people into Ur-Quan space to be destroyed over and over until they figured it out on their own.

Consider yourself LUCKY !  Lips Sealed

I found it interesting earlier that someone mentioned how governments that are installed from outside powers always turn into dictatorships.  The sad reality is that any regime change initiated by an outside force will beceome a dictatorial society.  Unless the people within a nation are the ones who initiate and control the changes, they will not throw the power of their force behind it, and the new government will have to resort to force/propaganda/etc to remain in place.  And since no government in history has been replaced without military conflict (and this is likely to remain the case), revolutionary wars are the only way to genuinly re-form a ruling body.

As far as the Iraqi war goes, I do believe that the conflict is inevitable.  One of the harder things to accept in life is that television and movies are lying - you can NOT save everyone every time.  And if I have a choice, I would rather save me and mine.

Psychologically, is helps an oppressive government to have a 'Great Enemy' that it can rally it's people against.  While many people believe that this is what our own (U.S.) government is attempting to accomplish with the conflict.  However, many of the middle eastern countries have been using the U.S. for this purpose for years.  The upswell of anti-american sentiment we have seen from these countries is merely the manifestation of several years worth of indoctrination.  



Final sidenote : We should remain vigilant in our own country so that we are not deprived of our civil liberties in a time of war (as happens in most cases of historical record).  Just looking at the text of the 'Patriot Act' you can see it's beginning.  Law enforcement agencies are no longer required to show just cause to obtain a wiretap, and you can be held without legal counsel if they believe it is appropriate.

Although I'm not sure about where these would go level-wise, I like them  Grin :

Umgah Prankster
Special Spathi Concealer
Arilou 'Visitation' Specialist

And so on, and so on.

8  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: The "Make a Star Control Movie" petition on: February 20, 2003, 05:07:14 am
Ah, a SC2 movie....I'm seeing Nathan Fillion as the Starbase Commander.....
A CGI for the Spathi, Umgah, and Supox....
Steve Paymer for the Utwig.....
Shannon Elizabeth as everyone's favorite Syreen seductress....
That's all I've gotten so far, but with the exception of Shannon, they're all pretty easy to pay for !  How about it, Miramax ?

Just an FYI, if you read earlier in this thread, you'll see my getting gently reprimanded for needlessly posting.  I don't know what an extreme punishment would be, but I thought I should mention it  Smiley
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Running SC1, 2, or 3 under XP? on: February 04, 2003, 04:50:09 am
I've been running it on my old 486 up until this re-release.  That and 'Ascendancy'.
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: What's with the caster? on: February 04, 2003, 04:49:03 am
It's location-specific, so you've got to use it in the right place.

However, using it by itself in Hyperspace calls the Melnorme.  This really doesn't help you much until you destroy the probes though.....
