1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / How do you Start? on: May 24, 2009, 02:16:16 am
The first thing I did was reconfigure the keys for a laptop. Then I went to some star system on the star map and got zapped by some ship that needed to assimilate the ship and all occupants. THEN I looked at the hints files. Is the system in the first window Sol system? I thought you had to explore to find it. I tried to read the manual but it's full of changes. I just now found the manual bit at the very end. I cut and pasted that part into a new text file. I'm writing this at the library. I'm homeless and it's my only access to the net.
I had a bit of trouble installing the game too. There were the three content files that needed to be installed from the same directory. This was not clear to me. I got an error message about a missing key.cnfg or something and finally figured it out. It's not quite apparent how to actually PLAY the game. When the getting started tips mentioned searching sol system after reading that they start from a colony where they built the ship it threw me. I'm very literal minded and such transitions are illogical.
I once played Starflight II from the same era of gaming and wasted my time landing on planets and mining resources when I was supposed to be finding critters to trade with. Then I found a hint book and saw my mistake. I've heard about Star Control and jumped at this opportunity.  I've checked the FAQs and nothing seems to address my problem.  Thanks for reading this.
