1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: No ending on HD? on: February 02, 2021, 07:26:05 pm
Would going into game settings and disabling 3do content do the same thing or no?

I haven't had this issue (at least with the intro. Haven't finished yet)

Also what is the protocol for obtaining the 3DO content itself?
I was looking online and the 3DO discs are available but looking for something more immediate if possible.
I understand it as being somewhat involved with the disc and ripping the data etc.  sounds pretty involved.
2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Unable to complete download - error is resolving hostname on: February 02, 2021, 05:40:07 pm
Unhappily there is no ONE location for ALL versions and ALL offline files.

If you have the location where you got your files please post.

I am making a repository and hosting it permanently where everyone can go for ALL things Star control including the original releases.
Of course I assume no responsibility for the code and it is up to each user to ensure they have a paid copy of anything they choose to download.


Either way I wanted to have a single location for everything and you can help by sharing what you used to get going.

I was in the same boat and realized the built in downloaders in the installer are hard coded to locations that are gone now.
I had to search a long time to get 0.7.0-1 (so I can use the UQM save editor) as many of the replicated sites had corrupt images in some of the files.


Thanks in advance.
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: UQM Mem Edit - Edit fleet ships (now also with device/item editor) on: February 02, 2021, 05:25:18 pm
Thank you for all of the work on this!
So there are a few things I wanted to do.  I require assistance in order to make sure it happens.

1)Collect as much of the files as I possibly can from UQM project so they are all (all versions possible) available in one place.
(I will host and post the location)

2)Gather as much info as I can in order to make use of the files more comprehensive.  Each folder for each version will contain a text file outlining the specifics of that version and use of.

3)Find out if there are more than PC platforms circulating to determine what I am seeing online.  I have 0.8 and 0.7.0-1 currently.  I am playing .7x b/c from what little I know, it seems it is the latest version that will allow use of the UQM Editor (saves)  Now am I wrong here or correct in thinking that there WILL be or is now an editor for .8? Part of my understanding is that it is only with memory states and not saves? I am not sure.  Also escort ship modification, not possible yet due to compression of saves correct? Or maybe it is possible but only on MAC?
I am still reading up on this so PLEASE forgive me.  Also "HD Mod" Is this a PC version (like  let's say 0.7.0-1) which has additional items other than the music and speech packs?

I ask this because I saw a YouTube video of UQM being played and it was identical to my installed 0,7x version however the graphics were notably different. (better)

a)Does this break UQM editor?
b)Is there a working solution for editing saves using the "HD mod" version?
c)Can it be applied (if for PC) to any version or must it be 0.8?

If anyone sees this as thread abuse please let me know and I will move it to where I am instructed.

I hope I do not get flamed but I thought this was the most relevant discussion given my ultimate intentions on providing a comprehensive one location repository that is permanent.
It's $100 a year to host the files so I don't see that as a big issue.  If money actually becomes a problem I can just host it privately in my house.

I appreciate any assistance on this and please forgive my ignorance.  YES I am going through the sticky/read me first/FAQ posts as we speak. 

There really is no way to avoid this post as it's a collaborative ask and that involves people and I would have questions no matter what I have read prior.

Please forgive.
