I need help.
« on: June 30, 2005, 06:25:59 am »

       I finished most of the campaign up through the vux creature, which I had to look for a guide on where to find. I then continue about the game. Then the Kohr-Ah start killing things.
      I start looking in the guide again to make sure this is ok. It's not! I do NOT want to start this game all over because I took my time to learn the clues of each race (with the exception of the elusive Vux creature). If anyone knows a way to get out of this fix, please tell me. I really like the game and would rather not stop playing because of ridiculous timing.
      BTW, the Utwig fighting the Kohr-Ah bought me Zero (0) days of delay, even though the Thraddash did.

It's still possible to win the game. You lose once the earth starbase is destroyed (which, I recall, is NOT during the kohr-ah's first pass through the region).

For a walkthrough that actually tells you what you must do at minimum to beat the game, go here [EDIT: Link should work now]:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/game/564589.html

Open the speed guide, and then scroll to the bottom where it says "bonus: lazy guide".

Keep in mind it will kind of take the fun out of things if you read it all the way through.

Gurney,

      The Mycon have been killed already (along with the Druuge and Zokfoqpik). This would make it impossible for me to get the sun device or entice the Syreen to join. The Kohr-Ah killed all three of these races by about May after they started moving (on Feb 17). At this rate, they are slaughtering the races faster than I can travel. The Umgah will be dead before I can get the creature, and, as I've already stated, The Mycon, a crucial piece, are gone.

The Kohr-Ah care nothing for artifacts, just destroying life.  The toady dweeb on the Umgah world can protect himself too.  So simply just land where you need to land and take the things.  But it sounds like you're going to be restarting the game anyway if the Druuge are a concern.

Spoiler-o-rama!


You certainly need the talking pet, the sun device, and the utwig bomb to win the game. I don't think you need anything else, and all these items can be picked up after their host races are dead. If the utwig are already dead, you can get the bomb without the ultron, granted that you know where it's located. Also, if the druuge are dead, they can't be there to stop you.

Thanks for the input.

      Even if I can get those items though, I'm worried about whether I'll have enough actual firepower or enough time. How long does it take the Kohr-Ah to kill everyone, and how much of an armada is recommended to be able to take on the Sa-Matra? (or if you don't, whatever's around it)

Oh, don't worry about firepower...  Wink

You'll get infinite resources from the Chmmr with which to make any modifications/ships.  Chmmr Avatars are great against the defenders, and carry along a couple Pkunk Furies for the Sa-Matra asteroid shields

Forgot to mention that the taalo shield is kind of a pre-requisite for getting the talking pet.

I found something on the burvixese moon which went to my ship. I think that's the shield?

No that's the Burvix Caster.
