Hi everyone, the game has been updated to version 1.0.7.3 with 1.0.7.4 due out tomorrow with some enhancements to user experience. All reported crashes have been fixed and I have had no reports of crashes since 1.06

As I had said before, post release updates would be released based on user feedback and other general enhancements to user experience. The majority of changes in the patches now reflect that.

Here are some screens from the release version:

Engaging a pirate vanguard at a pirate base:

Engaging U'Guul warships with the assitance of Eurian and G'Lani military patrols:

Skirmish between player, pirates and U'Guul:

Thank you Azrael. For anyone wondering, I was able to give Azrael an alternate link for the correct patch. Since the current 1.05 one on Desura is missing files. 1.07 full has been uploaded but again awaiting Desura authorization, if they don't break it again :)

I love Desura, but trust me they have a very needlessly complex way of delivering updates etc.

I think I am going to find permanant file hosting, and just let new customers download 1.07 from Desura and get all their updates from my website.

Hi,

Just updated to 1.05.

Issue 1. My monitor resolution is not on the list (1600X900) when i try to run the game in another resolution fullscreen it just crashes. I can run it windowed at a lower resolution.

Issue 2. A couple of minutes after I undock, the game will always crash with an ""EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" .

Hi lou, your resolution is there, scroll down the drop down box to the bottom

1600*900 (16:9)

Hi Lou, I spoke on issue #2 in reply to sonics post.

Issue #1 I thought I had 1600*900 on the list. I'll put it in if not, it should* be there.

However, just click full screen, then click auto detect, a label will appear telling you what resolution is detected. Launch game (basically ignore the list in your case)

I am aware of issue 2...it was a bad application of the patch by Desura, they left out (somewhow) explosion files. So whenever combat occurs, whether near you or not, these files are missing. Upgrading to 1.06 here: Gamefront.com

should fix that issue.

Sorry about that, please report back on issue #2 after you have applied the 1.06 patch.
Remember that from 1.0 on all saved games are compatible.

Hi everyone, something I overlooked. Before you patch, backup your save folder and restore it after the patch. I will no longer include the save folder in future patches, it does not need updating.

So if you have a saved game you want to keep post version 1.0, back up your save folder, patch the game, then replace the save folder with your backup.

Someone rated this a ONE?! You HAVE to be kidding. I think that Desura needs to have a requirement for writing an actual review if someone rates a game so low; we are required to write them when we award a TEN.

Anyhow, I give this very good game an "8" because this isn't the full game. It does crash a bit, but, the potential is there for something very special. The developer has been patching and working on content additions.

Keep up the good work!
