PC Text vs 3D0 Voice
« on: May 26, 2004, 02:40:50 pm »

Hiyas! Just discovered this website and forum.

Star Control 2 is one of my all-time favorite games. I still think about it every now and then.

My question is what is the status of being able to select PC text over 3D0 voice? I obsessed over the PC version so I'd really like to play it and not feel like I'm missing certain chat segments.

Um... huh? You want to disable the 3DO voices and read the text instead? Consult the manual.txt for parametres.

Are you talking about missing segments like the metrechon and the ending sentences? Well, I don't think thoughs were ever made into 3DO.

Exactly. ..and the minor 'script' changes throughout the game.

I read in a few places that the creators were intending to bring over the PC text eventually and have it be that you could select which format you played the game in.

We're not there yet, and it will take some time before we're ready to start on that.

The voices are awful, that is the true reason to shut them off. It won't get you the old text, but here's how you do that just in case you don't know: right click the shortcut you use to open UQM and change it so there's a "-T 0" at the end after the path. That's a zero, not a "Oh".

Example: "C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\uqm.exe" -T 0

Actually the voice acting is among the best out there, especially for the time period.  Its also better than reading through those God awful text fonts.

Some of the voice acting sucks, (Pkunk, anyone?) but most voices are quite good, I think.
