Re: SiS Updater and Installer

There is 21014 stable announced, but only 21011 available (just a few minutes ago have tried to run update.exe).

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

The "waiting" (in my case the spinning circle) cursor shape doesn't change back after the "end turn" (enemy turns) is done, I need to move the mouse to change it.

edited by sven: Should be fixed in r21070.

Somehow it gets the "Save Date" (on the left) wrong.

Halved damage of Heavy Railguns plus any shields are effective against kinetics now - not sure if I want it. That will be a different game. :(

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Hope you don't make installing additional packages mandatory (and automatic) - there is always a chance to break something important relying on older (or newer) libraries you (unintentionally) override.

My XP machine is mostly out of service because of some hardware problem (I've mentioned recently in that topic). Sorry.

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

This is the kinda place where a language like Go really shines -- it's built to make writing custom servers easy; hacking together something that dynamically overrides part of the installer bitstream during an http download is actually pretty straight forward. The core trick, basically, is just to ...

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

The download links are linked to your individual accounts, in the sense that a game installed using Chasm's installer will have Chasm's user id attached to any bug reports you upload from that install. Expected something like that. Wondering how is that done. Do you dynamically generate installers ...

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

On an old thinkpad, there are likely to be any number of other quirks, of course. I'm guessing this is one of the machines that generated all those flagged gl errors back in day? Not sure what do you mean, but unlikely. I was talking about errors happening than a new (retrieved) update.exe "se...

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

Your original installer links should still work, and the installer itself is very backwards compatible. The core network protocol hasn't changed in years, in fact, I believe even the *alpha* version update.exe would still be capable of getting the most recent build of the game off the dev sever. Th...

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

Something broke in my (quite old) desktop (probably a fan), so I've plugged my ThinkStation (which was collecting dust in a corner). How do I install the SiS on a new computer without Steam? The original install is way out of date, and the download link seem to be gone (didn't think it was importan...

You can read about my iteration with weaker hardware (including Core 2 Quad) here - it starts, but doesn't really play.

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

'Stars in Shadow has just hit a particularly nasty bug'- after attempting to launch after the most recent update with .dll changes. I got a 'crash.dmp' file; how should I go about getting this to you? The forum says it has an invalid extension for attaching to a post. crash.dmp probably has a size ...
