Aha! I was wondering why I had to press both buttons to launch marines instead of secondary fire by itself. Thanks a lot:)

Howdy, I'm pretty much a total newb considering I haven't played this game since I was a child and I never got to get too far into it.

I actually have a couple of newb questions myself if you don't mind me leaching on to your thread for a moment Tongue

-Is there a time limit? I thought I remembered something about a max year that everything shuts down and you lose.

-In order to take out an enemy race which I really want dead (Let's say Ilwrath), do I locate their home planet and obliterate all life through an orbital nuclear bombardment (or kill everything in said planet's orbit), or does each race have some kind of a quest thing that's associated with them? (I took care of the Spathi with a quest thing).

-Is anything time dependent? I was contacting by the...Zok-Fot-....Zok-Fot....the green mushroom, the eye thing, and the air freshener. There homeworld is a wee bit out of my scope at the moment, will delaying cause them to get eaten?

Howdy. I played this game on the 3D0 many years ago and enjoyed it, but since it was a friend's game I didn't ever get a chance to get too far in it. Anyway, I am playing it through the Ur-Quan Masters and loving it, and found my old beloved race the Orz pretty quickly. I've figured out most of the controls for ship melees with the Orz, I can launch marines and so forth, but I seem to remember being able to rotate the main cannon. Am I remembering incorrectly or can the main gun be rotated in the middle of a fight? Thanks in advance, I tried searching for my answer but couldn't find one.
