Re: Various Brainpipe Questions

1. Yes, that's the end of the game if you fail to achieve Unhumanity.

2. Yes, you'll notice the score stops increasing while you're slowed down.

3. No, and probably won't be.

4. Brainpipe...

Re: Modding questions to devs =)

I think the hypervision flag only works on items that are in your cargo hold, not on systems that are installed.

I don't remember what the PAR1 on sensors does (if anything). It's set to zero on...

Re: WW require new patch urgently!

That is true. We didn't think anybody would more than double the number of items in the game. We have no plans to release a new patch right now though.

Re: ALLY vs SHIP

I don't remember if there's still a difference between these two commands. Quite possibly not. It used to be that "allies" would be more choosy and possessive about their equipment while "ships"...

Re: Incorrect checksum for freed object

This error message isn't one of mine although no doubt the bug is... It sounds like some code is modifying memory that it shouldn't. This is usually caused by a buffer overflow. You could try...

Re: Tried to destroy world that hadn\'t been create

I think the "world" it's referring to is the entire world aka. the whole starmap. The game creates a new "world" for the start menu background battle, and when you start a game or the simulator....

Re: scrugug.ogg?

Re: sound oddity - is this normal?

there's a "bridge ambience" track. It should sound like a low hum or rumble. If you want to replace it in your mod, the filename is sounds/music/bridge.ogg

Re: RANDOM GENERATOR PROTOTYPE

You can and should do this in a new quest file. Just set it up exactly like haven.ini and it'll be triggered at the same time (ie. when you first "arrive" at Hope). There's nothing hard-coded in the...

Re: RANDOM GENERATOR PROTOTYPE

There's nothing special about haven.ini. Any quest with the "always" flag will always run.

Re: Unanswered question: making friendly races un?

Re: Where is a funcitonal example of \"preenc\"?

The pre-encounter condition is used in mantle_gar and mantle_url to set that race to be your enemy if you arrive without the mantle and have made friends with them earlier.

The preenc is triggered...

Re: Still Not Working

Most likely the crash has nothing to do with the sound error. In general, if get an error message multiple times that means the error was survivable.

It sounds like it's crashing on creating the...

Re: Ship Invisibility

If you want an invisible projectile, just don't put in a sprite entry (SPRI). There's no need to "draw something invisible".

Re: Can a system have more than one TYPE?

Correct, an item can only be of one type (and have one DATA block)... You can't fit a square peg into a round hole, so to speak. Just didn't think this would be useful at the time.

Re: I need help for my Mod

You can use PSP to make ship graphics. I'm quite sure it can output 32-bit (RGBA) .tga files as it's a very common file format. However, I have not used it myself.
