1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / v0.2 for win? on: December 24, 2002, 09:35:33 am
Is there a v0.2 for this "wonderful" Windows OS I'm running on?  I've been hearing about some of us who have it, but I'm beginning to think it's mainly CVS...

Any tips for those of us stuck with Windows?

I didn't see anything in there about the game freezing during speech......

Replying to my own post... fun...

Tinkering around with the game a bit, I've found that the crash does not just happen at earth.  It happens after I've talked with any race at any "major" conversation.

If the conversations are long... and I allow each one to played through (or loaded it seems... fastforwarding doesn't help), after a while, the game will freeze.

The only way to get around it (that I've found) is to continuously save before you know you're getting to a major conversation session and/or use the space key to skip conversations... By skipping each audio file isn't being loaded.

I'm assuming here that the game isn't unloading any of the audio files once it's been used...  that's just a first guess...

Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi everybody.

I've read through the posts here and tried some of the workarounds...  nothing has helped so far...

I start the game. Head to earth, meet the drone, talk to Starbase Commander, go to Mercury, back to Starbase, then to moon, back to Starbase, beat the crap out of the Ilwrath...

after coming back from the '2 week layover', the game pauses.

There was a workaround that one fellow used... he went to mercury first...  tried that, same thing happened.

I'm using WinXP (Joy), 433 P-celeron (joy), 256mb ram (joy).
