« on: March 06, 2004, 06:39:14 pm »

I´ve dowloaded all the files, in a broadband computer. Now, I want to install in another one. When i run the installer (windows), it tries to download the other files. How can I instaal without having to download?

You can't. But... you can decide not to download stuff like the 3d0 voices. But I suggest you to download all.

Install the game without the downloadable parts; content, 3DO music, Speech.

Then manually download the zip files and put them to the content directory of the uqm.

Not sure about this new installer if it looks from the installer exe directory for the zips before download. The old (0.2) one did this though.

If someone got better instructions, feel free.

Well here is the REALLY easy way to do it.
(Note - You must have a CD burner)

Download and install the full version of 0.2 on the broadband CPU. (Yes, I know it is no the most recent version, but it works on this one the easiest)  :-/

Next find the directory you installed it in and select it.

Copy and paste on the CD.
Let it burnnnnnnn.......

Then take it to your "other computer", select the folder on the cd and copy.

Paste on the directory of the C: of you choice. (Just remember where it is)

Once that is done go into the folder. You should see Content in the top left along with other icons. The one you are looking for is a purplish icon marked UQM or Ur-quan masters, or 0.2. I forget which. Copy and paste to your desktop. (Or just rightclick on the icon and click send to desktop if you have windows XP.

Next, ENJOY this great (and old!!!) Version of UQM.

Hoped that helped!

Download the Windows installer and content packages from the UQM downloads page, choose "Executable only" in the installer, and unpack the content files as described on the download page.

Or do like I did; do a CVS checkout on the broadband computer, burn the entire CVS module to a CD and copy that to your own computer.

No just making sure I'm not going nuts(it's like spamming without spamming), although it is quite sad that these people can find the site yet can't figure out how to install it(Mostly Win users) people who grrew up on DOS like me have no  trouble at all sad state of affairs some people don't know how to use the start bar.  I think we should be able to flame people who ask questions that have been repeated several times without getting flamed ourselves.

I just did a simple CVS checkout according to SourceForge's instructions, compiled and ran. Sometimes, the Linux/Unix way is the easy one. Grin

Spamming without spamming - ??

Flaming people who don't search? Yes, it is slightly annoying, but not worth flaming anyone. I bet that I could find a few topics in which you asked a question that was asked by someone else. Be careful about that Terminator.....

I don't mind so long as they are relavent not old news and not overdone I'm thinking about making a hatemail thread being that most likely it will have 5 pages worth of flames. [TERMINATOR walks away while puting his flames out with gasoline ... all of a sudden silence].

Keep in mind terminator that this isn't your private forum, so you're really only allowed to do things that have been okayed by the moderators. And if memory serves me correct, flaming isn't allowed by the moderators. This mean's that even if you were allowed to flame someone for asking stupid questions (which you aren't), you'd still have no more grounds for doing it than you'd have for going into someone else's house and lecture them about composts IRL.

And the same goes for all of us, obviously.


Except for me. Cuz I'm just that great. And I know the moderators all love me. Wink


Right?

Luki I'm aware of that but that doesn't stop people for doing that does it? The mods are pretty lax proably cause there are way too many threads to overlook.

The mods are pretty lax because there is little to no flaming going on here. Seriously. Except some smallish bickering and whining from tiome to time (which is usually to immature to catch anyones attention) there are no flames on this forum. There is no doubt in my mind that if we start flaming, then  bannage, locking of threads and the likes will ensue.

Just like flame wars can ruin the atmosphere in a forum, strict policing can do the same. If a bit of flaming occurs, just don't respond.

Also, I understand it can be annoying when different people keep asking the same thing, but from their perspective it's just one question.
You can't expect people to search the forums when there are FAQ lists. If a FAQ is missing, the list should be updated ([1]).
Also, if someone repeats something that has been said, you can just in a few friendly words refer them to the FAQ.
If you can't do that without flaming, then just ignore them.
A good first impression may cause them to stick around.


[1]  Are the people that wrote the two FAQ lists still interested in maintaining them? The tech issues FAQ thread is locked, but that can be remedied.
