What the hell is the Red Probe?
« on: March 18, 2003, 04:00:21 am »

Where these things are come from?
How can I stop them?
I'm talking about Red Brobes that is everywhere.
In start they nice, and suddenly they become hostile to me and it doesn't matter what do i say.
I repeat: How it can be stopped?

The probes are actually suffering from some sort of manfunction
anyways to find source of them is to talk to the Arliou, Thandassh and ZPF for some hints for their source and also to add one more hint is one of the probe's dialogue options tells your reative distance based on the map coordianes.

P.S please forgive me for my spelling

Or you can just buy it from the Melnorme.

Also, note that it's not always a good idea to stop them, even when you find out how to. It won't be long before your ship will be able to vaporize them in the blink of an eye, and they give you 550 RU each!

And if you have maxed out thrusters, you don't need to engage with them. In my most recent game, I only went to deal with it because I forgot where the two rainbow worlds that you find out about in the solution are.

I dunno, I kinda like to encounter the red probes in space for means of conversation.  They sure are a talkative bunch, so it's always fun to see what they have to say.

Actually, you get the 550 RU from them whether you blow them up yourself or use the sd code.

Talk to them nicely and they will reveal all the secrets of the galaxy to you.
If you have destroyed more than 3 of them, that option is no more...
Then you will have to destroy exactly 1024 of them to make them withdraw - otherwise you're in deep trouble... Good luck!

This actually doesn't seen to happen to me.  Even if it does, the problem with using the code is that soon enough, all the probes will stop bugging you... they'll start disappearing forever and that source of RUs is gone.

Sorry, Corsus, won't do it again... Listen to the other post though and soon the red probes will leave you in peace!

That's OK.
I didn't believe you either.

But what species are making them?
And who changed their code?

SPOILER ALERT!

Don't read this if you want to solve the game for yourself!









There's a star in the upper left corner at (033.3:981.2) where the Slylandro live on a gas giant called Beta Corvi IV. They bought a probe from the Melnorme (those space travellers and merchants) and reprogrammed them - which they screwed up and made the probes change their behavior into "agression".
Hope this doesn't spoil your fun and helps you a little.

(By the way, this is not a taunt but the truth)
