  1. Bioware. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27311504/
  2. Sounds like you may have misunderstood the SC (I could be wrong). In Echo Squad you don't have the ability to roam, but in BCM, UC, UCG, UCAWA, UCSE, and UCCE you have a roam mode along with the compaign and instant action modes. This roam mode puts you into space with a ship, a crew, a few supplies, and basically lets you explore the universe to your hearts contents. If you want to be in the military and protect the universe you can fight battles in space or send you and/or your marines down to the planet for ground ops using the transporter and/or shuttles, all the while having your fighters backing up the troops from the air. If obeying the law really isn't your thing, you can be a pirate and attack ships for their cargo. If you crave freedom to do what you want give BCM, UC, UCG, UCAWA, UCSE, and/or UCCE a try. (p.s. watch out for intruders on your ship )
  3. What is the secret to hosting and playing on the same machine. I can get the console version running and initialized correctly but when I attempt to start the MP client it says I can't have 2 copies of the application running at the same time? Update: A different error was preventing me from patching to version 1.00.03. I was finally able to get the patch to work and that fixed this issue.
  4. SC, in reference to your first comment in this topic, are you planning on releasing the original UC as freeware in the near future? (I know I posted this in a different thread but it was a sticky and and the new post indicator on those can be easy to miss sometimes)
  5. (Hopefully this is a good topic to put this question in.....) SC, in reference to your first comment in this topic, are you planning on releasing the original UC as freeware in the near future?
  6. quote:Originally posted by Wolferz: I have the answer to the burning question..... "How do I orbit?" Easy. Just step into that little cubicle marked AIRLOCK Then one of us pushes this little button marked OPEN OUTER DOOR Et joila' That's the one thing this board is missing: An instant gramemlin that is an animation of a graemlin having the airlock closed on him and then being sucked into space, slowly fading off into the distance. (for an added effect, when it's in space maybe it can grow bigger then BOOM!)
  7. I love around 3 minutes in where he says 'I don't need help'......Guess again.
  8. Ok, I think giving us that mental image deserves a temporary ...
  9. I've used an Axis game pad I got from Walmart for $15-$20 that was similar to an x-box controller. I used with a super nintendo emulator, which took some trial-and-error to get it set up the way I wanted it, but afterwards it worked really well.
  10. That makes sense. I just didn't know if there was a way to get them back into the 3D world, but it sounds like currently there isn't. Also sorry about the original title. I thought it might be good to have a spot for those questions that might be valid but also might just be so ridiculus that it might be safer not to ask. Next time I'll make it relevant to the issue. Thanks
  11. I was playing a few minutes ago and just for fun I landed my CC on the surface of the moon, transported myself and 5 marines to the surface, and then put 2 cargo pods on the surface to give them some target practice. We destroyed one cargo pod and when I targed the other I noticed the marines had an option of docking with the cargo pod. I figured why not (I think I know now why) and when I did it they ran over to the cargo pod and then disappeared. After that I couldn't get them back. They were listed in perscan as being on the moon, and I could see them the tactical computer, and when I looked at their stats I could see that they were getting pretty hungry where ever they were. I even looked at the contents of the cargo pod and all that was there was the 1 nutripak I had put in it. Is this just something I shouldn't do if I ever want to see my marines again, because I've had the same thing happen if I tell them to dock with a gunship on the surface too, and I have yet to find a way to use them afterwards. Please use descriptive post subjects or the thread will be deleted next time. [ 06-19-2006, 07:19 AM: Message edited by: Supreme Cmdr ]
  12. You could always buy a metal detector and go into treasure hunting. (Just don't do this )
  13. I was at CompUSA yesterday and I noticed they had some jewel-case copies of Universal Combat. I've wanted to get another copy of it so I could play it on a LAN with my brother-in-law (maybe bring another UC convert into your fold). Is this possible using this jewel-case version or will the multiplayer authentication fail when playing on a LAN also? [ 06-07-2006, 11:13 PM: Message edited by: Matchoo ]
  14. quote:Originally posted by Wolferz: Red River, /stretches fingers in front of the airlock controls. "One more pointless post without your system profile in your sig and I'm gonna space you for awhile" Comprende? I thought he could make all the pointless posts he wanted to as long as he wasn't requesting tech support....
  15. I got my verson on CD from BMT Micro. Would you still like me to try it?
  16. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: quote:Originally posted by Matchoo: Both singleplayer and multiplayer are running great for me now. Thanks. Please complete your profile. Done
  17. Both singleplayer and multiplayer are running great for me now. Thanks.
  18. I just ran it again but in a window and got a dialog box saying: ------------------------------------- Runtime Error! Program: E:Games3000ADUniversal Combat A World ApartUCAWAMP.EXE R6002 - floating point not loaded -------------------------------------
  19. I downloaded the 1.00.14 patch and installed it, and it works great in single-player, but when I try to get onto one of the multi-player servers it keeps crashing on me. One time it crashed I did see a dialog box with the message 'floating point not loaded'. Is this the same problem as 1.00.13 had?
  20. I just tried a $10 and it looks like it did on the site.
  21. What we really need are some Vulcans. Worked on Star Trek.....
  22. Would it be feasable to put a screen on the menu that comes up when you dock with a station that will just read text out of a file in the game directory and put it to the screen? This way it would allow us to implement our own missions by changing whatever is in that text file (whether we do it manually or have them generated automatically). It would be up to us to decide if we completed the mission or not, and we wouldn't get any additional money or EP except for any we just happened to accrue during the mission. I know that you are working on your new titles and have said that you're finished with changes to UCAWA, so I don't expect anything to come from this post but I figured I'd post it anyway.
  23. Pretty good, although I think he sounded more like Steven Tyler.
  24. Since he recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2005, maybe it is due to his machines running the .Net 2.0 framework rather than the 1.1 that most of us are probably still using. It's been my experience that just because Microsoft allowed something to be done in one version of their development environment it doesn't mean that that will be the case in the next one. Rather than suggesting that he 'dumb' down his machines we should give him the benefit of the doubt that he will find the problem because history shows that if there is one he will fix it. I haven't had the chance to update to this version but when I get the chance I will try it and see if I get similar results.
