1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / pre-release V.2 bug on: December 21, 2002, 08:53:42 am
I've downloaded the updated content files and new exe based on instructions in the other forum.  I found a bug that makes life rather easy.  I plucked the egg shells fro Gama Scorpii and had a trail of mycon podships on my tail.  I hit a planet and left quick and managed to get caught.  I talked to the mycon, and as expected he "grew turgid", but I didn't have to fight.  It went right back to the game play screen completely skipping the melee that should have followed.  

Thought someone would want to know.
2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / druuge/utwig text on: December 11, 2002, 08:36:48 pm
I haven't seen any other reports of this so here goes.

I am playing full screen mode after lowering the resolution to 320x240 as recommended.  
When I talk to the Druuge or Utwig I had no problem if only 2 lines of text were printed.  If three lines were printed I could only see the upper half of the third line.  

It is possible to use a bottom justify on races whose text will appear on the bottom of the "view screen" rather than use a fixed first line?

Being fairly new to the game and enjoying it completely I find mining to be time comsuming and dangerious to start.  Are there any suggestions for what and where to mine in the beginning of the game?
