the ZFP [...] crashed

Yeah, it's probably because of the oversight pointed out by EP above you. Now fixed (see above).


I had figured that I was just mentioning how crazy the ZFP is now + i thought i had the most up to date version so if i do then it still crashes. (and yes i am aware that 99.9 doesn't mean a complete fix)

Oh and the computer plays Ur-Quan like a bitch he just sends like 500 fighters after you

Yeah, I even experience slowdowns at times when there are so many fighters.

Fighting an AI-controlled Ur-Quan:
- Guys who can win without taking damage: Pkunk (screw the primary -- just use the backwards tongue), Orz (stay away and let the marine get its way), Slylandro
- The Ur-Quan is defeated, but not without incurring grievous damage on, or killing, the other ship: Chmmr, Earthling (PD always on, stay far from the enemy and nuke him), Shofixti (just launch Scouts at the UQ, and at concentrations of fighters that are firing on you), Syreen, Umgah.
- Guys who usually lose, but damage the Ur-Quan a great deal (section probably incomplete): Arilou (due to the UQ hitting the planets more badly due to the speedlaser), Utwig (use shield against fighters, not energy spears!), Spathi.
Yeah mine slowed down a few times from certain weapons or ships but no biggie. And im not too fussed by the Ur-Quan i just thought it was rather funny watching my various ships hammered by like 500 fighters at once. The Druuge almost made it through the pack in full reverse Tongue

Goto can be useful at times. It was the most elegant solution here,
No, it wasn't. For instance, you could have just put the code between the goto and the break in {}, and negated the condition of the if.

(for the record, I've seen goto used reasonably as a double-break statement, but no other good uses.)

EP, are you planning on releasing a final version of this mod sometime? I'm wondering if I should wait for it.
I have no plans to do that at this time.

I considered that, but it wouldn't have worked for the second case (with "divisor").

divisor will never be 0, because of the condition of the if it's inside.

Oh, by the way, I've made a version fixing several game-breaking bugs.

- The game no longer goes out-of-sync when using multiple ships of the same type.
- The ZFP no longer have a divide-by-zero error.
- Arilou no longer divide by zero when shooting Mycon.
- The game no longer crashes when the AI plays Spathi.

Elvish Pillager's last release was based on UQM 0.6.2; you would need a working installation of that to start from.

Some time ago, however, I made a port of the Crazy Mod to current UQM git; if you can run the official Git snapshots (or if you can build UQM from source), you should be able to run it. Unfortunately, I never ported EP's changes to AI behavior; if the AI was wonky before, it's completely broken in my port.

Ok, thanks I didn't know that but I have no idea how to download or install. If someone could give me step by step instructions? Pretend I don't have Ur-Quan Masters or the mod, I'm on windows and I don't understand any of your computer language. Step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated.
