I could really see this theme working with Androsynth, if they were in the game.

By Spathi's ULTIMATE EVIL, I was thinking more like Spathi fleeing in horror from what they think is "ULTIMATE EVIL". Cheesy

So I was playing Shovel Knight, recently released 8bit styles retro platformer that has great chip-tunes.

Then found that all music from the game can be listened from here:
http://virt.bandcamp.com/album/shovel-knight-original-soundtrack

And on the same place, there was official remixes album with some of the tracks, using modern instruments:
http://virt.bandcamp.com/album/strike-the-earth-shovel-knight-arranged


And then, one of the remixes hit me with StarControl 2 vibe:
http://virt.bandcamp.com/track/the-science-wizard-explodatorium

If there was ever an actual Spathi's ULTIMATE EVIL, it should have this as music theme. It fits perfectly.

Everyone likes to be an artists. To make new ideas, back stories, voice overs, "design" the game.

But nothing gets done without down the earth programmer(s). Sad truth that no one wants to step in...

Kinda sad that project currently lacks actual developers to do the coding.

Too much writers, too little coders.

That's original box art for the SC2.

As long as their don't turn Team-Gizka everything is fine...

Logging & journal system.

What I didn't liked in SC3 was that economy aspect, that was added to the game, is completely pointless. You are never on defensive, so there is no reason what so ever to hoard resources, colonize planets or do anything, exempt go "adventuring" with your fleet. All pacing depends on player.

Apparently they illegally put the title on their game and said everything was theirs on the internet before they had all the rights to everything, so it's technically illegal, but it hasn't made any money, and accolade officially no longer has  the coding rights, so it's not worth suing over.

Question to everyone reading this thread:
Anyone having any clue what dathinvaderzim is talking about?

Ur-quan masters and star control 2 I can get for PC, the ur-quan masters uses many of the same things  as star control, star control is copyrighted with all rights reserved on it's coding and images and sounds and names...there seems to be a problem.

Dipshit.

Why would you get so riled up over a "12-year-old" and call a "12-year-old" a dipshit? I hope you never have kids...


Do you have something that's...not from wikipedia about these legal issues?

Yes, I just posted it (again). See also the official UQM copyright information and the UQM Project FAQ (which have both been posted in this thread). As an aside, it seems odd that you don't know what UQM is, seeing as how you're posting in it's official forum. Then again, you've already demonstrated a remarkable talent for remaining ignorant of facts even when they're shoved in your face.

You posted a link to a download of the Ur-Quan Masters...
I already own the Ur-Quan masters...
I can't read the files...
How does this help?

I looked a little more on ultracomunicon on wikipedia anyway (or w/e its called) and it said this applies 1992-2002, however the thing I have is 1997, after 2002, so what is this "1992" thing?

That what you have is a repack of original game from some adabonware site. Whoever packed those files probably changed the date too.


As for original game, it was called Start Control II: Ur-Quan Masters.

This project is called just Ur-Quan Masters.

There is nothing random there. It's practice for abandoned game packs to include scan of original manual, or OSD version of paper manual.


But, it really has nothing to do with Ur-Quan project. It doesn't even use source code of PC version, but of 3DO console version.
15  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Kickstarter? on: March 29, 2012, 04:40:08 am
As far as I can see from the screenshots, it's not even original game, but version uploaded on various sites that host abandoned DOS games (legal grey area). Someone just did OSD scan of original paper manual and converted it to TXT file. There is even PDF scan of manual too.
