News: Paul Reiche and Fred Ford want to continue the story they started when they created Star Control II — The Ur-Quan Masters. «Happy days and jubilation!» «But wait!» «There is something wrong here... something which makes my sheath retract and my talons ooze.» «Please, Captain, we need your help!»

Since you are no longer affected by gravity, you should do this RIGHT NEXT TO THE PLANET so that the enemy cannot remain engaged for long (unless he's arilou). Also, if they come in close, you may destroy them by letting them bump into you and bounce into the planet. More free time!

Do NOT do this to Tanaka, since it could kill him.

Also, if you are fighting an infinite stream, start the escape sequence the moment that you destroy one ship, so that you have all of that victory time to charge up the warp engines.

What WAS the difference? I only ever saw the PC version.

OK, I have both the developer version and the runtime... since this is a compilation operation, I guess I need the developer stuff. Should I go into the build.sh script and tell it where to find all the SDL code? If so, where in the script is it?

This question has been bothering me even before I have gotten the program compiled... The first time I played, with a friend, we were Captain(s?) Kirk of the Enterprise (IIRC, we had to abbreviate). Kind of unoriginal. Second time, I was Captain Nedar of the Executor (one of the officers that vader offed in the Empire Strikes Back - and the super star destroyer. Fitting, because both ships ram the biggest warship around, but not exactly for the same reason).

This time... who knows?
I may take one of the character/ship combos from Niven's Known Space...

I just wish the splitting process had succeeded, completely. Though the chmmr might be powerful, it is not a ship I enjoy playing with or against. Then I'd get the Broodhome and X-form back to toast those Heralds with. The X-form would be good at that, I imagine. Of course, I had no trouble since the upgraded Doog were unstoppable...  :: shudder:: let us speak no more of this.

What bothers me is that the chmmr aren't in every case superior to the Chenjesu or Mmrnhrm. Therefore, the two races should probably realized that diversity is a greater power than individual power, especially when it comes to fighting... umm... what ARE Chenjesu or Mmrnhrm better at fighting than Chmmr?
hmm.
