We have in the organization installed Kaspersky endpoint security 10 for Windows - possible cause and there, but the unloading of its anti-virus did not help solve the problem.


It might not actually be the anti-virus per-say that caused the issue. As I recall, Kaspersky has a bunch of different program monitoring features, and if the error only occurred on port 80, it might be some kind of web-security feature (such a feature could be mistaking the TLS data stream for HTTPS).

In any case, glad you got it working! I should probably update the installer to default to the "alt port" setting, as a number of different testers have all had issues on port 80, but I've yet to get any reports of problems running on the alt-port.

For the record: We appear to have sorted this one out via email, but, it's still a little murky just what was causing the issue.

I suggested running the installer via the command prompt: i.e., by going to "Start Menu -> Run", then typing "cmd". To make the path issues simpler, we copied sis_installer.exe into c:, and then typed "c:\sis_installer.exe".

For whatever reason, that appears to have worked fine, while simply clicking on the installer in windows did not. If anyone else runs into an issue like this one, please let me know.

The folks who pre-ordered and got beta access are still part of the beta program and will continue to receive updates. No additional action is required.

You can post feedback anywhere you like, in existing threads or in new ones. Feedback is always welcome.

I think the patch system is in some way defective.
From a couple of days it gives me problems. It remains locked in unpacking.

I tried to remove everything and reinstall from scratch.
It works, but at the first update ... hangs it all again.

Thank You

Hrm. I'm not certain what's causing this -- I've taken a look at your logs, and as best as I can tell, there are no reported errors. It could just be a window messaging bug (i.e., the unpacker is finishing, but, for some reason, it's attempt to tell the updater that it's finished is failing.)

In cases like this one, if you close the updater, and then restart the game, I believe everything should work fine.

However I ran into another error.

A ship of marauders came into one of my systems.
I was contacted and they told me that they "did not want to pick a fight"
since there were some of my ships into the system. Everything ok, except that then
the counter of the food has gone to zero (and all systems were "blockaded") from
an alien ship, but there was no alien ship in my systems.
Saving and reloading the game, the problem persisted.

From time to time then they come out of the error screens with variable code
1234 and others. I will post screenshots or the text of those errors.

Ok. Sorry for the bugs. It's worth noting that there were a lot of bugs introduced in last night's 'stable' build. I fixed most of them this morning. So, if you get the latest patch (currently r16805), there's a chance that many of these issues will be resolved.

No problem...
Thank you for your work.

A question ... it would be possible to extend the size of the galaxy over 100 systems?
I like epic campaigns, with 100 systems I have the neighbors..."already at home" :lol:

The updater stopped working on XP (some call is missing in some kernel dll - sorry, rushed to delete SiS on that machine). You might not care though.

It would be good to track this down -- as it probably means that the version I'm about to push out on steam is going to break for any XP users as well. Can you send me a screenshot of the exact error message? Thanks.

Doesn't Steam has its own update client?
It actually was quite old version, I don't play SiS on that computer, just wanted to check something for reference.
Will need to install it again.
