Fenmar Total Eclipse

Post by jmoore85 »

I've completed a fairly length ed:programmatic decoding of the Total Eclipse Universe 1 and 2 and have a gazetteer of the worlds, tech, type and trade prices. Is anyone interested in this sort of thing still? What I've not been able to work out is how to decode the authors name. Does anyone know who Veebo Zogrod is and what / where Grogfax is please?

ED 20210126 I edited this post to remove the initial upload which is buggy - grab the archive further down this thread instead.

Hope you like it. Note that the galaxy table column headings sort the table by that column.

I'm working on getting the source code into gitlab but since I posted this I can no longer get the prices to match in the emulator so I need to track that down.

Certainly it is "inhospitable"

The game mechanic for getting to Universe 02 works in Universe 02 and will ask for the next universe tape. The Prophet invitation is triggered in Galaxy 8 with an invitation to JAKIRE. Unfortunately because a visit to Galaxy 5 is a one way activity - there are no jump gates there to return to Galaxy 4 or advance to Galaxy 6 triggering the invitation is not possible. Happily the Shard collected in Universe 01 to get to Universe 02 is still in your inventory when starting Universe 02 so a jump through the Blackhole in Galaxy 2 generates this screen.

The main problem with Universe 2 is the lack of planets in galaxy 2 means no where to buy a Hyperdrive to jump with. I have several gdb scripts that allow disabling of pirates, and jumping at will. Attached is an updated set of maps for both universes and trade prices that seem to be a better match to the emulated game.

Be good to get some thoughts from people who have gone to the trouble to look at these files. Does anyone know who Veebo Zogrod is / was?
