Newbie needs help!
« on: September 15, 2005, 11:43:03 pm »

Just got this game off of home of the underdogs and been playing it and so far really fun. Until.... I went out look for RU's from other systems and this alien attacked me. I don't recall the name of them, but they attacked me in hyperspace and man, did they do a number on me. I've restarted the game I think 10 times trying to beat them and I never can. They are really fast and just close on me and destory me while I'm trying to turn my darn ship around. I can't even get back to sol because I can't outrun them in hyperspace.

Am I doing something wrong? I conversed with them before they attacked me and they said they wanted peace. Did I somehow piss them off? Please help, this looks like a great game. If it would help, I will go look for their name if no one knows who I am talking about.

Before you leave the Sol system, get your thrusters maxed out so you can outrun the Slylandro Probes.
Then avoid them until you're ready to deal with them.

You'll also make a new friend in the Sol system whose ship will become VERY useful for defeating the Slylandro Probes.  When you find him, talk to him for as long as you can to convince him to join you, then open up Super Melee and practise using that type of ship agains the probes until you become adept at crushing them like flies.
