227  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / CVS Login Problem on: July 29, 2003, 03:39:52 pm
I can't seem to access the CVS tree using the anonymous login. It seems like it's rejecting the password (none being put in, mind you). Here is what I get in the command line...

D:\Documents and Settings\Sage\My Documents\uqm>cvs login
Logging in to
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

No error messages, and thus nothing to consult. Anyone else having this problem or willing to hand over the latest source?

EDIT: I also tried working from a different directory entirely (root of C: and also C:\uqm\), and got this error message after putting in a (lack of a) password.

cvs [login aborted]: could not find out home directory

Generators on Earth would mean that someone would've found it eventually. Of course with Zelnick galavanting about and the Kohr-Ah preparing for thier Great Cleansing of this sector the likelyhood the Earthlings finding it before being destroyed or freed would be incredibly low to not at all.

As stated before, Vela and Spathiwa both pretty much invalidate the possibility that a slaveshield generator would be on a Starbase. If such a generator did exist and Zelnick were not to have aided the Earth Starbase in time, the generator would potentially have failed and knocked down the slave shield in the process. But I digress.

Perhaps a slave shield is just a highly charged part of an atmosphere (some layer of an atmosphere that all live-bearing worlds have in common) and the Ur-Quan have some sort of energy-shielding around thier ships so that they can penetrate the shield during thier regular maintenence.

My mining config is usually similar to this, with the exception that in my first run I tend not to have quite so many cargo bays. Generally on my first (highly selective) run I take 3-4 (depending on RUs) then 5-6 on the second run. The last two times I've done my selective mining experiments I seem to never fill up completely on my second run, due to crew casualties during mining. I should learn to take better care of my crew.

Generally it's a bad idea to send a mining rig into Ilwrath space. In fact in most cases it's pointless to have a gun early on and instead spend the RU on something more pertinent. Of course this means you HAVE to fall back on your support ships (Battle Master Fwiffo, anyone?) until you have enough resources to convert your ship into a true Dreadnaught-killer.

Actually my Dreadnaught-killer config tends to fare poorly against Ilwrath (what with the cloaking and all), so I have a strong tendancy to avoid that area until I've sent them to thier collective doom.

Battle Master Fwiffo is great vs. almost anything if you pick your engagements well. Often at the beginning of the game I'll swing by Vela and pick off the Dreadnaught there for the spare RU it provides.

There is no best ship overall. Any of the six meanest can take on any of the other ships, but of course there are the weaknesses to take into account.

However I tend to avoid using Shofixti ships (lack of patience on my part) unless I want to use the Glory Device and nothing more, or the Supox because I can never get a good handle on the reverse flight without getting creamed.

While on the topic of slave shields, I must add something. Isn't it odd that a focused field of energy is somehow self-sustaining, and can presumably stay up and running for however long is required? How in the heck would one activate or maintain such a thing?

Since it's been kicked to the top, I may as well post as well.

1.What kind of poster you are
This being my first post in the two or three months I've been visiting, I'd be classified as a lurker. In the board I administrate (currently down) I'm a bit more of a frequent poster. Suppose I should start here sometime.
2. Best moment in SC2
Making only two whole mining runs in an entire run of the single player game, then running around on the collected hoarde of RU/credits to complete quests without mining again.
3. Favourite book ever (one or several)
The Hitchhiker series is really good, though I've never read the last book. Should get back to that again.
4. One hobby
Just one? Yeesh...freaking Androsynth and thier limitations. I shall stick to my Human tendancies and defy my former (or future?) slave. Programming (html, perl, php), music composition, random doodlings, map/mod making, and other random and miscellaneous unrelated things. Nyah.
5. What you are/want to become in the real world.
Wait, um. You mean there's something out there besides the internet? Must be boring.
6. A fun fact about yourselves.
Myselves? Now I have to answer for multiple personalities? You Androsynth, I swear. First it's one of this, then several of that. Meh.
7. Anything else that feels valid and important
What feels valid and important? Dunno. I administrate a yabb not too different from this one. Until our host went down I was trying to ressurect an RP forum. And so on...

WARNING: Statements of a deragatory nature made by me toward the Androsynth should not be taken seriously. I don't want to have to hide under a table from Lukipela after my first post.
