Big Uranus Glitch
« on: July 03, 2003, 04:06:28 pm »

I just started the UQM and Im up to the part where the commander says they are are detecting alien signals from Uranus. I got to Uranus but it wont let me scan it in anyway! What do I do?

The signals are coming from the direction of Uranus. Uranus is a gas giant, so it can't be scanned, or landed on. Try looking at other planets nearby...

It deserves mention: The majority of the hints to the in-game puzzles are presented in this fashion; i.e., the game prefers to "point you in the right direction" rather than "lead you around by the nose".  The sooner you get used to thinking about the puzzles in this way, the more effective you'll be.

Have fun!

What happens? Game locks up because you hit too many keys.

You could have at least left SOME work for the player to do themselves.

I believe you get much more satisfaction from a game when you have to put in the work to get there.
Thats why walkthroughs suck, you get to the end without having to do any work and hence arent very satisfied.

Actually, that one crew member is Fwiffo himself..
When you're piloting the Vindicator (damnit I hate that name, I always prefer Liberator) the number of crew you have on the main screen is upped by one for space melee combat to factor in you as the captain.

I do, however the name Vindicator is 'default' most people know the ship as. Much as is 'Zelnick'. Kind of like those Video Games where you're given the option to rename your characters, but most people know them as their default name.

Yeah, you know that part of FF6 where Nathan rescues Anne from Ultros, and then Tarant steals her right out from under their noses?
It's almost as incomprehensible as the time when Hans is trying to conceal his identity from Anne and Franz. What's up with that? And what's the special link between Boris, Natasha, and Artmis? There's a relic which protects only those three, and its special text says "Mother's love protects against fatal attacks." Is Artmis really Natasha's father? Surely no one woman is the mother of all three of them...
And Inigo's state of mind... well, let's not go there (unless you want some powerful weapons and espers). Similarly, Lisa's mind is not a fun place to be.
And then there's Goku. What a weird kid... weirder than Natasha, and she's pretty weird.
I never liked Odo, Stan, or Ralph all that much -- the former two speak not at all, and the latter hardly ever. They don't connect into the rest of the characters significantly.

Points for each character you can positively identify!
Points for each character for whom you can figure out where the name came from! (note: I do not have a known source for Anne, Lisa, or Nathan, other than just regular old names)


It is to make this trivial that people use the standard naming conventions even when the names in their game have been altered radically. Hence the 'Avenger', under protest.

finally:
"I am not Red XIII... I am really, " (user enters 'Red XIII') "... Red XIII!"
