1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: UQM 0.7.0 release candidate 2 on: June 03, 2011, 01:28:40 pm
So do the texts in question reflect the original PC version now?  I've posted my "reconstructions" of the missing Mycon audio elsewhere on this forum, a couple of years ago I think.  Perhaps now they could be considered for inclusion?

I'd like to second that. There seem to have been several (I'm counting three at least) attempts to recreate that audio and Vee-R's is my favorite by far. I used it for my last playthrough and wouldn't want to play (or recommend) the game without it anymore.

As far as I know the UQM Extended Edition is the only mod that offered solution for this Mycon dialogue problem, but I think it doesn't include the text lines where the Melnorme explain that the MetaChron is darkening. (I might be wrong)
Sorry for the plug, but besides the Extended Edition, there's also this little mod, made by myself, using reconstructed audio files previously posted here.
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Missing Mycon dialogue add-on on: April 08, 2010, 07:12:42 pm
As nobody seems to have done it before, I decided to take VileRancour's reconstructed Mycon audio files, convert them to .ogg and put them together with the proper .ts and .txt files in the right directory structure in an easy-to-use add-on package. You can get it at http://www.filedropper.com/uqm-missing-mycon-dialogue or at http://www.mediafire.com/?dixjgd2j5j1

To use the add-on, put it in a subdirectory of your content/packages/addons directory and then start the game with the --addon <subdirectory> command line parameter or, if you want it to be always on, just put it right into content/packages.

VileRancour's audio isn't perfect, but it's definitely good enough for me and probably for you, too. I find it very much preferable both to other attempts to restore those speech files and to not having essential information in the game at all (which almost ruined the game for me when I played it for the first time and which makes me reluctant to recommend it).

Let me know what you think. Hope this is useful to somebody. I didn't test it extensively, but it seems to work fine so far. I'd appreciate it if somebody could upload it somewhere else and arrange for a bit more permanent web hosting.
