Hyperspace out of battle?
« on: February 14, 2003, 11:40:10 am »

please no "RTFM" replies Tongue

Does anyone know the key, combination, to "Hyperspace" out of battle with your mother ship?  I tried almost every key on the keyboard and I cant seem to find it.

Right now I dont really need it (I'm so fast and powerful I can outkill, outrun anything) but at the begining when I was trying to beeline from the Pkunks homeworld through Ilwrath space I was always jumped by (always) 3+ Ilwrath ships who...suprisingly enough, spent the whole battle cloaked until they were close enough to kill me.

Oh well...hopes someone can help me out.

Spoiler Question if you havent got far in the game or beat it:

Does anyone know the FINAL date when the Koah win the battle...lets say with the Utwig helping and such...I'm taking my time and I dont really want to miss my opportunity to win the game.

Can't remember what the escape is in UQM - the question has been asked before on this board...you could always search for it...

The Ilwrath are always in the direction opposite your ship...aim in that general area when you fight them - remember the camera scales down when the ship is close to you...

The spoiler question: [color=2F2F4F]The game ends usually sometime in late 2159 or 2160.  This coincides with the end of the Kohr-Ah rampage, which happens with the destruction of Earth and your starbase.  So basically in nuclear war terms used in movies, 2159 is 10 minutes to midnight.[/color]

Figured it out...it was hard to understand in the txt manual but enough I just fiddled with it.

You gotta hold down the + (plus) key on your numpad keyad and tap space bar.

Just hit ESC or space+shift, but don't forget to upgrade UQM to make that work..
