Thought the people on these boards might be interested in the news. Smiley
2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Dumb question: 3DO movies? on: May 22, 2005, 03:35:23 am
I don't suppose the 3DO movies are available for download anywhere in the format that UQM requires?

I actually made it a point to read reread the story in the first part of the SC2 PC manual.


I am also considering the androsynth revolution after reading that. Smiley

Chrispy, that's actually the only idea I have some up with so far, as far as a story goes.


I actually want to avoid just retelling the SC2 story, since frankly it was done so well with the game itself.


Is anything known about what happened on the planet, other then finding the facility to build the flagship?

My main concern on doing a story about the planet, is that it might not have a Star Control feel to it since you won't be leaving the planet visiting other races and such.

Yeah, Is tumbled across that page and that's how I found out about the official book.


Although the history on that page may be of use.
6  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / An idea I've been kicking around... (SC Novel) on: December 16, 2003, 12:06:25 pm
I've been considering starting work on a novel sized story based in the SC universe.

It's really just in the idea stage ATM, I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas about what it could be about.


Also, if anybody has a link with a very detailed history of events in SC, providing it here would be much appreciated. I want to decide if I could maybe flesh out a specific known story, or fit something of my own in. Ideas on either account are welcomed.

I'm thinking it will be based during the events of SC2. No more information then that right now.
7  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Do I need to redownload content voices and music? on: September 14, 2003, 05:25:58 am
Alpha .3 should be fun, but do I need to redownload all the support files? I have the Alpha .2 versions, and on 56K, they are huge.

Thanks for a quick answer.

Well, whenever it's in a more finished form, I can do some voice work for you.

I can also make web pages if you need that.
10  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Some help with Star Control 1 please... on: August 12, 2003, 05:02:23 am
my solution to playing SC1 in Windows XP with full sound, was to download a Sega Genesis emulater and the SC1 rom.
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Newer UQM version on: August 03, 2003, 12:50:28 pm
Earlier in this thread, somebody posted the content of their keys file. Copy and paste that into yours, that's what fixed mine (once I got the install right).
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Newer UQM version on: August 01, 2003, 06:41:23 am
Well, it looks like I got it working. Smiley

Just checked everything except the content, voice, and sound files. SWEET!

Look for another dumb question in its very own thread soon!
13  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Cross-platform launcher complete on: August 01, 2003, 06:14:50 am
I don't see the file up there anywhere.
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Newer UQM version on: August 01, 2003, 06:04:02 am
Okay, I tried something else.

I replaced the content of keys.cfg and starcon.key with some that was posted up above this post.


Not the game crashes while loading the key configs.

And about the installer again, so I need to check the boxes for voice, content, and sound? I get errors when it tries to download them, and I hope I don't need them because the voices data took long enough on 56K. Smiley

Okay, I'm a newb to this (just found out about this converstion last night), and I was wondering if anybody could help.


I have downloaded the "official" installer, voice, sound, and content files.

I have also downloaded the latest build installer from this thread.

What boxs do I need to check in the installer in order to get this latest build to work?

The error I'm getting when I try to play is this...

Code:

Initializing SDL (pure).
SDL driver used: directx

Hey!  you haven't updated your keys.cfg to use the new system, have you?
Delete keys.cfg and try again.
If you've done that and it STILL doesn't work, make sure your content/starcon.ke
y is up todate.



I've tried what the message says, but it doesn't seem to work.

I don't know if this is something I'm doing wrong in the update installer or what.


Any help?
