Bits of Dialogue that don't show up easily
« on: December 07, 2005, 11:36:23 am »

I've browsed through this forum abit, and found some interesting stuff but what I've found doesn't correalate to what I would like to know. I've decided to play through SC2 for the billionath time, but  this time I want to complete the game on the brink while the kohr ah are doing their genocide.  (So I can do things like get the bomb without acquiring the ultron. (On a side note, how much time would I generally expect to have after the utwig are "cleansed"?)

Anyway, my main quest is to find bits of dialogue that generally would only show up in certain circumstances. A mention of going to visit the ur quan in vela after the doctrinal war interested me, and its stuff like that I'm interested in. Another example of something rare (imo) is when you get the dialogue topic "stop what you do is wrong! Why do you do this thing!" (From somewhere I cant remember) and talk to the kohr ah about it, which was interesting to me. Just things like that I would find interesting. I assume there is alot more of that in an important plotline of time running out  which I have never really ventured down as I have always been quick in resource gathering and completing the game.

Any pointers would be really appreciated to bits of text that got you thinking, or amused you or simply interested you, that normally you wouldnt run into. (This includes declaring hostilities on alien races and possible alliance members.)

You could go through the textfiles, but I believe its not what you want.....

Well ive tried to do what I could but i finished the game. Theres some interesting dialogue with the utwig and supox if you give the ultron to them after the Kohr-Ah start their killing spree. They talk about it being to late to do anything, and then when you talk to them again they talk about fighting the ur quan kohr ahr to "keep the balance" even though they dont move at all.

Also, for those who are in trouble with the Kohr Ahr (This has probably already been found out.), I've discovered that once the kohr ahr are starting to head towards the thraddash or around that stage you can trick the illwrath into going to kill the thraddash with the caster. The Kohr Ahr after killing the thraddash will head to the illwrath homeworlds, and then start to follow the illwrath not doing anything to them once they "engulf" the illwrath. The Illwrath will get to the thraddash area of space which is now empty and their sphere will start to shrink. While their sphere shrinks the kohr ah will just sit there on top of the illwrath until they are dead, giving you precious time that you might need if you happened to be in this situation. Not that you'd really get in this sort of situation. It also appears at first that the kohr ah shrinks as well, but I dont think thats the case. In any case you earn afew extra months from doing this.

Since I guess i've finished the game already and explored various avenues that I could see, (Btw the post I read about visiting the ur quan at vela after the kohr ah rampage begun gave me nothing new.) then I guess yeh I'd be prepared to look into the text files for the game. (Especially for stuff like threats or when you attack the vux so many times to aplogise and finally get them to tell you why they hate you.) I'm pretty sure in the past, I've been to some web page that had all the text of the game, but I can't find it now...

So yes if you could direct me to some means of looking at all the possible text in the game, that would be much appreciated:)

sure.. browse for the text files in the UQM directory...

Tongue

anyway as far as I remember, the Kohr-Ah start their cleansing quest by going to the Utwig and clock-wise, so essentially they never get to the Ilwrath (since the game ends when they reach Earth)..

No prob. Try uqm.stack.nl  (wrong page), but use the link to the sourceforge or webCVS-page. There you'll find the sourcefiles of UQM. In the directory comm you'll find at least one sub-directory for each race. In there you'll find one [name].txt files with the dialogues..
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/sc2/sc2/content/comm/ is more direct.

Enjoy!
