0 comments by gristmillstudios on Oct 21st, 2013

Desura is experiencing some issues with their servers that is preventing installation. We only know that they are working on it, but don't have an ETA - hopefully we will have more information later this afternoon (will post here).

In the mean-time if you've purchased the game but can't install it, please send us a PM and we'll make sure you can get a copy until Desura is fixed.

thanks (and sorry)!

UPDATE: according to our tests this issue has been resolved, we're still waiting for a confirmation, but we're pretty sure things are good to go again.

Use the bundle key (top of bundle page) not your key for the game, I am assuming you made the mistake I did.

I believe the IR bundle has a link to the installer - install it through there, it will get updated as we update Desura. If that doesn't work just shoot us a PM and we'll take care of ya

Got the game in the IR bundle, couldn't play it until the 2.1.41 version, but that works fine.

Really annoyed at the selection of resolutions. Where's the rest of the resolutions?! 1920x1200 monitors deserve love too.

Daisy says the inventory button is I, not E.

The Centriforge menu should use wasd not the arrow keys to browse (both would be fine though).

Pushing E should close AND open the inventory. Pushing R should bring up the centriforge menu without needing to go through the inventory, and preferably should automatically connect to a 4d centriforge if one is within PICK range.

Daisy says she will give you a processing core when she's talking about solar panels, but I don't see any but the one that 'survived the crash'. fix wording.

Having tutorial text block off everything until it's already gone is just bad game design. Daisy should play with the HUD and never take away control unless absolutely needed. Being able to see the current mission at all times would be great.

I'm with the others who say the crafting menu is awful. it's confusing to need to click on the highlighted item again to make the craft button light up. It's confusing to know which items are natural, and which are crafted, there desperately needs to be an encyclopedia of blocks and items you can refer to by selecting a block, or clicking a component in a recipe.

Thanks for the feedback Prezombie, we agree with most of your points. We've still got a long way to go on the PC interface - it's a lot more intuitive with a gamepad, just because that's where the UI has its roots.

Would love to update Daisy to hit the HUD instead of a full popup as well, hopefully we can see that change down the road.

Game works for me now too.

I have to agree with these suggestions after my first play through.
It is however much more managable with a gamepad, but keyboard and mouse should get some love when ya can.

I also agree the tutorials could be displayed on the side of the HUD.
Daisy could also use some dialog outside of hte tutorials to help remind the player what they are doing and add a little immersion. Just a small suggestion. Providing the messages are more dyanimic and less obtrusive ofcourse.

So I can now get the game to run single player either with or without Desura. However, we have a few of us trying to connect to play together and no matter who hosts, when a user tries to connect the game crashes to desktop for them immediately. Any ideas on this one?

Anyone else having trouble running the game at all?
It sits in memory and does nothing until I end the process through the task manager.
I've tried a few things but no luck.
Most XNA games run fine so not sure what could be causing the snag.

I'm on Win7 64bit, Using an AMD cpu and ATI radeon video card.

Anyone run into this issue? Any known fixes?

We've had several confirmations that this fix worked and haven't heard that yet - can you try a full re-install and see if that fixes?

Yeah still did not work through Desura for me. I downloaded the installer from the indie royale page as I noticed it had updated. That installer worked.

the internal desura installer should work again, it may take an uninstall and reinstall. Sorry about that.

Xenominer is way better than Minecraft, and I'm a hardcore Minecraft player too.
