Umgah:  Bug or feature?
« on: December 18, 2002, 10:22:26 pm »

In the game, when you rescue the Umgah from the talking pet, they say they'll give you 1000 units of bio data, however they only actually give you 500 units.  I looked, and the code says:

Code:
GLOBAL_SIS (TotalBioMass) += 1000 / BIO_CREDIT_VALUE;

I'm going to assume that BIO_CREDIT_VALUE is set to 2 (I'm on win32 right now, so no cscope for me)

This looks like it's that way "on purpose"  Is it?

Every biological data unit you gather is worth 2 credits to the melnorme.

This might explain it?

Right, but they explicitly state that they're giving you 1000 UNITS of bio data, which should be worth 2000 credits.

It's probably just another Umgah joke.  Crazy blobbies..  Smiley

I think it's a bug.
In the PC version they said "We hope five hundred units is sufficient" or something like that.

Anyway I it was five hundred units in the old version for sure.

The Pages of Now and Forever would appear to agree with you, and the dialog .oggs don't have a line in them that mentions a specific quantity at all.

Should have checked there first.  Duh.  No matter, it's fixed on my box..  Smiley

I have a related question if someone is kind enough to answer it... *how* do you rescue the Umgah from the talking pet? I have the Taalo shield activated, but I need something else, don't I? Otherwise the pet endlessly orders the Umgah to attack me.
Thanks muchly!

Ah ha, I was trying to be kind by not killing them all, at  least not in one go. I'll be off to make some Umgah-goo now then. Thanks again!
