1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: strategy Help on: January 14, 2007, 08:53:41 am
Well, the Kohr-Ah don't seem to be offing themselves so far. I DID save the Shofixti. (I know - just one race). I also have been told everything the Melnorme have to tell me. I've ben most, but not all of the places they suggested, and I have lots of devices (sphere, helix, spindle, utwig bonb (can't find utwig) , Umgah and Burvix casters, taalo shield, and warp pod), but I am not sure how to win the game.

I'd like to win and then restart. Think I can win now?

ST 

It's theoretically possible, depending on what you've done up to this point and how much time you have left, but you probably need to restart (or go back to a previous save) and not waste as much time.

ETA:  More specifically, do you already know what you need to do to win the game?  If someone (in-game, not OOC) has already told you and given you what you need to do so, you've got a better chance.  But really, if everyone else is dead you'll only be saving yourself.  And humanity.

ETA 2: Found the end time:


On February 15 of the year you're in, the Kohr-Ah start their genocide.  On October 21 of the same year, if you haven't won, then the game ends.  So, you can look at the date and see how much time you have left.  If there's less than two weeks left and you don't already know what you need to do (you get told some specifics, not just "do something about ___"), you can't win.

I just finished (almost) the UQM port  for the 1st time., never having played it or Star Control before.
There is only the Kohr-Ar and the Ur-Quan  spheres left and every now and then they tell me I've lost.
Can I still win from here, or do I need to restart and not waste as much time?

concerned,
Bebe
