Game Ends at 2159?
« on: July 23, 2004, 10:23:07 pm »

Hello all,

 I've been playing/testing and re-loving Ur-Quan Masters (SC2 is still one of my favorite games of all time.  

 I hit a snag, and I'm not sure if it's a BUG in this version or not.  The game announces my total defeat at 2159.   I had been proceeding around at what seemed an ordinary pace.. is the game made to end at that point?

Thanks

Yes, unless you proceed to a certain point in the game in which the date is pushed back by a year.

Who announces your defeat? Have you ever encountered them before?

When you encounter an alien race, you'll see their sphere of influence on the map. If you have a saved game before the end, try finding a few races, including the one that announces your defeat. See what their sphere of influence does.  Wink

It's weird that he'd get the announcement without ever meeting the [Insert Alien Species Name Here], especially since they cover a quarter of the entire map and move right over Sol before the game's over.

I have compiled a version of the official 0.3 beta source (not CVS) that has the Kohr-Ah victory pushed back by 250 years. The drawback is that you'll have to start a new game in order for it to work...

I can send you the exe you if you want.

Ah ha! Thanks again! Now I have compiled a version that supposedly works with savegames as well Wink

A Win32 executable of the latest CVS, that is.

250 years? Egad, that's enough time to strip-mine the entire galaxy, and wipe out every sphere of influence in existance! Shocked

On the other hand, I'd like to see just how "geometrically" the Slylandro probes will multiply in that game. Who knows, they may be the ones to conquer the galaxy after all! Grin

Even if probes have 100% spawn chance, that only means 1 probe per day (just like the beginning if you leave for HS first).

Any chance that someone might consider building an option into the game to delay the ending for as long as the player wants?  Or anything like that?  I for one always enjoyed exploration and hate being rushed to complete the game before I'm ready.  I always preferred that aspect of the Starflight games.

hmm...

Well other than the fact that it would be encouraging cheating and thus lessen the fun of the game - the team wants to make a faithful copy of SC2 - Without cheats or any other kind of thing like that......
