1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Fan Art! on: April 02, 2019, 12:35:32 am
This is years old, but probably my all-time favourite piece of Star Control fan art:

Two weeks and no comments about the actual speech file? I guess I'll just go ahead with what I've got then, even if it's just for my own use.
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / SC3-style Orz speech on: September 09, 2014, 09:44:22 pm
As full of missteps as Star Control 3 was, one of the things I really liked was how the speech for Orz was handled. The words in *asterisks* were spoken in a different voice that sounded like a monotone computer speech synthesis. I've been thinking about making this for Ur-Quan Masters, and I finally got around to giving it a shot myself. Being the *silly cow* I am, I grabbed the longest audio file and worked through it with Audacity and voice clips from an open source speech synthesis program. Here's the result, and hopefully people will be interested in giving it a listen:

Feel free to give me feedback on this. I would be especially interested if anyone can point me towards a speech synthesis program that might give a better fitting sound.

Hopefully fudging with the speech files like this is allowed.
4  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Questions about editing saved games on: March 04, 2007, 10:45:23 am
How can I change the date and the ships in my fleet using a hex editor? I would also be interested in knowing how messing about with the date would affect the game. Are events like Spathi slave shielding, Pkunk journey to Yehat and Kohr-Ah victory directly connected to the date or do they run on a separate timer?

Crowley: Ask this on Technical Issues. Novus or meep-eep should help you.
Will do.

You can use the save game editor at uqm-mods.sourceforge.net to edit your fuel, credits, RU, crew and modules.
I was looking to change specifically things that ready-made editors don't allow for.

Since math is based on absolutes and computers need math to run, the very fact that you can see this post is proof that there are absolutes.
Just wait 'til we get quantum computers...
9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: I have the Ur-Quan warp pod! on: October 16, 2005, 12:56:43 am
In order to use the warp pod, you will need to get the nuclear breath mints from korh-ah space and the quark emitters from the thrynn.
Just be sure that you do not have any Elowan onboard, though.

Say, isn't that Jack Nicholson?  Wink

Of all forum pictures like that I've come across this is my absolute favourite (and the only one I've saved on my computer):
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: a subject to be illegal on: July 29, 2005, 01:14:28 pm
Talking about illegal, I recently read that the U.S. congress has passed a law which states that any pornographic material is considered child porn unless explicitly proved otherwise.

I know there are some Finns here. Anybody heading for QStock in Oulu?

All hail Finland! Hail! Hail!

Captain Craven of the Morpheus. Hey, I like Sandman.
