What happens if you rename it .jpg, provide a link (not an img tag), and tell people to right-click on it and save-as, then change the name back?  It might fool your service provider...

If you create a bug report in the bugzilla database you can upload an atachment.

That's a perfect idea, and the most appropriate place to put the file... Why didn't I think of it?  Embarrassed

How do you guys manage to beat the daily probes before you get the probe self destruct code?  The Precursor ship moves and turns too slowly, and the Earthling Cruiser can beat maybe 1 before you need more crew or are destroyed.  That leaves Fwiffo, my guess is he's the ship to use, but I don't see how he doesn't get killed before I can get the probe destruct code being unable to recrew his ship.

I used Fwiffo; with a little practice you can use him to take out probes with no damage, and a couple scratches here and there won't doom you as long as you are patient and decent with a fury.

Keep in mind, you will generally have to fight a LOT more than normal throughout the game, since you aren't fast enough to run away from anything.

I'm close to done with my Starbase-less run; haven't decided how I'm going to deal with the opposition at Zeta Hyades yet, and I still need the "distraction", but I'm set otherwise, and all my ships are fully crewed except one fury.  It has been fun actually having to slug it out with Ilwrath, Mycons, Kzer-Za and Kohr-Ah... even if it does get a little irritating when you leave a star system and have to fight off a huge swarm before you get a chance to enter Quasispace.

Scum? I don't think so. "Master" is more like it.

Holy shiz, man...Kudos to all of y'all, I've never tried to beat it without the Starbase's help, and, frankly, I prolly dun have the patience. My compy would haunt y'all for inspiring me to try, cuz I'd prolly send a chainsaw through it in attrition.

Wait, I'm confused. Without the warp device, how do you escape homeworlds with unlimited ships? Don't you have to find out about the Mycon Deep Children and then escape from their unlimited ships to beat the game?

You can learn about the Deep Children from the Melnorme, the Arilou, and the Druuge.

You don't have to visit the Mycon homeworld to get the information about the Deep Children to be able to take the egg sacs to Talana in UQM, where you had to in SC2.

Speaking of which, I'm going to have to redo my time-trial game for that little difference (and others) between SC2 and UQM game-play wise.

You guys are nuts.  I don['t have the patience for doing it this way entirely.  This did give me a darn good idea though.  I spent a month whacking probes before I made friendly with the starbase and the extra resources make the game a cake walk.  I just loaded up on fuel and fuel tanks and went bio hunting and made only one complete loop (counter clockwise), and finished Mar 23, 2057 or thereabouts.  Which is helaciously early compared to how I usually do it.

I am darn good at killing probes though.
