Well, then why were they so adamant about the bifurcator? It would seem to be worth a LOOK, even if in the end it turned out to be a trap.


Because by that point they had been living as fused beings for 20 years, and reverting to a previous state literally meant that half of their bodies were gone....

The mechanical parts probably have self-replication info built into them designed to grow when the seed crystal grows, compensating for faults and lacks in the crystalline matrices and enhancing other parts.

Never mind, I somehow managed to escape after defeating the Kor-Ah that fell on me, perhaps because of some random variable producing a different result. In any case, I made it away safely. That'll teach me to autopilot through UQ space and then save over my master file....

Thanks, everyone!

Trust me, evading them isn't the issue. It's that I come out of truespace after the battle and there's another enemy so close to me that it's almost on me by the time I'm done "spinning up" into hyperspace. Even by charging straight ahead without taking any time to turn, they catch me. :/

If I could set the Kor-Ah speed to zero, or figure out what \content files I'd need to swap to make the Kor-Ah act like a slow ship (like the VUX) I could outrun them and my problem would be over.

Check one of my earlier threads for the Melnorme Cheat.  Grin



Unless you're talking about how the Melnorme show up and give you fuel when you have none, I can't find what you're talking about. Also, the problem isn't with my fuel (I have a nearly full tank) it that my only valid save game has me surrounded by bad guys and I can't get away. Can you help with that?

I don't yet have the portal spawner. :/

And I can't save to a previous game since I accidentally saved over it. And I don't want to start again because I've been through a year of game time and have finally acquired all of the kick-ass stuff I need to really get going in the storyline. :/

But I realized something last night: hyperspace speed is based on ship speed, yah? So If I can hack the Kor-Ah ships temporarily and set their speed to 0, the one that's tailing me (the one that always catches me, which seals my doom since a ton of other ships show up after that) won't be able to catch me and I will be able to get away.

Any advice on how to do that? I no longer know hex well enough or the file structure of the 3DO ship files to figure it out myself.

I wandered into Ur-Quan space and dropped out of hyperspace with some Dreadnoughts. Not a problem. I defeat them, and there are tons of other ships warping in and they're so close that I can't evade them, so I'm trapped in an endless succession of battles. If I could just get away after that first battle before the second cluster of ships catches me in hyperspace, I could get away (turning and thrust are maxed out on my main ship).

The problem is that (stupid me) I accidentally saved over my main save file at the start of the battle with the Dreadnoughts. Now I can't restore to an earlier version and I can't escape.

Advice? Help? A cheat to get rid of this second group that's tailing me? Help!

Thanks!

And obviously I meant "dumb Windows question" in the subject. Tongue

Hiya -

Loved the game, played it on PC and 3DO back in the day, so happy that you guys are doing this.

I'm normally a Mac guy but I have a PC at work. The manual says:

"You may pass various command line options to customize your experience:"

How in the heck do I do that? I can't seem to build them into the shortcut. Maybe with the Run command?
