Renagade BC

Recommended Posts

I saw a Bc turning from the good side to became a renagade.

I chased him and he led me into Hostile Space, where i turned off his lights.

Can i contact him or do something with him?

Capture him, join him either than just waste him?

The question stays.

"Can i contact him"

A: No, comms are not enabled. Wait for multiplayer.

"..or do something with him?"

A: I don't want to know what you meant by that *grin*

"Capture him"

A: Yep, if his shields are gone and his armor drops to critical level, the ship will emit an SOS and you can tractor him and take him to a friendly station.

"join him"

A: That would be treason.. what are you implying Cmdr? *marine escorts surrounds Hugo*

"either than just waste him?"

A: He turned, he deserves to die. In any case, its better to just capture him, that way Galcom doesnt lose a BC and you get good reputation amongst the higher echelons.

Wait a minute! You saw him turn? What was he before he turned (cast please), and what did he turn to (again cast please)? This I gotta hear about. Did we just have a report of the first AI defection from Galcommie to Insurgent? Now that would be a riot! Hurry back and report in Commander Hugo! If I haven't heard from you come Saturday Morning, I'm sending out a hit squad for you personally! wink.gif

That caste-change rarely happens, but it does happen. They can go from Terran Military to Terran Insurgent.

Wow, that's great, SC! I hope I can witness this sometime. It would be great to "initiate" a Galcommie! wink.gif

I was mining on mars so i could do some upgrades, when, a BC came out of HyperSpace, it was a nice sight bacause all i seen was Raiders trying to get me.

He ┬┤parked┬┤ his ship nest to the Base and then Red Alert Ships flying everywhere and he started to come after me, i fired a view shots and he ran away.

I flowed him to another Star System where i eventually Crisped him.

That┬┤s my report.

Base? Do you mean the base on the planet? Or the station orbiting the planet?

Ive only ever seen one ship fly down to the planets surface so far.

Eh heh? No caste. For example you are Terran/Military

terran=your race

Military=your caste(what you do)

In the CVD if you put it on target camara and target your enemy it'll display that info.

I guess you don't know what caste they were then.

An interesting thing that happened to me yesterday kind of along the same lines. I was testing keystrokes at random and I got somewhere along the lines of "alt ?" and every friendly target turned into an enemy including galcom HQ and my own shuttle that was picking up a cargo pod. At this point I began hitting every key combo I did before and finally it changed back. Only problem was by this time the PTA system blew away my shuttle and the 4 or 5 people on it. Any ideas what I did wrong.

Well, I just tried ALT-? to no avail. (Including some other key combinations with ALT in that area) Can't reproduce Galcom turning sides on me. 2.09 if you are curious. And my game is running fine. I wonder what you did to make that happen. Sorry Seabass

No, it's not the new version, in fact it's the old free version. That's why I figured its probably just a bug that's already been fixed. But in case it wasn't I wanted to see if it was a hidden keystroke to give the game a new twist. It was interesting though to have Galcom HQ send out interceptors after me.

Its not a bug. The free version, like the v2.0x demo, needs debug in order to run without the CD-ROM. In debug mode, there are all sorts of keystrokes used for testing. That keystroke you entered was ALT+/ which made the current target, hostile.

Here are all the debug keys. Some are entered in the bc3k.bat or bc3k3dfx.bat file and others are in-game keystrokes.

code:


Disable object auto-generation ....... /q

Do not preload textures ....... /j

Disable keyboard ....... /k

Bypass startup menu ....... /r

Invincible ship (BC cannot be destroyed) ....... /i

Elapse 1 min ....... SHIFT+t

Elapse 1 hour ....... ALT+SHIFT+t

Hyperjump using target anomaly ....... ALT+SHIFT+j

Disable dynamic ai update ....... ALT+CTRL+f

Switch to current target ....... ALT+SHIFT+s

Create friendly ships at target jump point ....... ALT+SHIFT+g

Create hostile ships at target jump point ....... ALT+SHIFT+h

Destroy current target ....... ALT+x

Make current target hostile ....... ALT+/

Make all targets in region hostile ....... ALT+CTRL+s

Destroy all shuttles & missiles in region ....... CTRL+SHIFT+d

Create asteroid field in center of region ....... CTRL+F4

Destroy asteroid field ....... CTRL+F5

Use cheat code #1-6 ....... ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+#

1 - Restore personnel to perfect health

2 - Restore all ship systems to fully operational

3 - Install maximum shield,reactor,engine,armor upgrades

4 - Promote to Supreme Commander

5 - Infinite weapons for all ships

6 - Give all artifacts
