STEAMWORKS


Orion Source Multiplayer Beta 1.2 also marks the opportunity for Orion to become a SteamWorks release. This would truly benefit everyone as it would allow us to pump out more content for the Beta, including achievements, hats, statistics and tons of other features we would really love to add to the game as well as improvements and new content. Valve is considering Orion for a SteamWorks release based on player activitiy and overall acceptance of the Beta 1.2 release. You can help make this a reality by simply downloading the Beta as well as playing it as much as your heart desires!

-Sigh- I spent 3 hours downloading the mod only to have the installer not work, then I re-downloaded it again after 3 more hours the download failed and started over and now I'm 2 more hours in still waiting for it to finish... it shouldn't take ~10 hours to download a HL2 mod...
This mod better be really damn awesome after all I've been through today, haha.

Is it right that no one is playing this mod at the moment. All servers are shown empty. And if i try to connect to a server the game crashes with an engine error "OnGameRulesCreationStringChanged: missing game rules class 'CBJGameRules'on the client". Can someone explain me what's going wrong and how i can fix it?

Wow so after 10 hours I finally get it installed and there's NO ONE playing? Every single server was empty and when I tried to join one I got some engine error and it crashed. Great. That was a waste of 10 hours.

Well I'm having like 10 servers show up and they are all totally empty... I installed the mod correctly, I'm sure... it's not like I could mess that part up. I can't understand what could be wrong.

Why do all the servers say Jailbreak? I don't get it.

You either need to redownload or reinstall since you have a copy of the old .exe that links to Jailbreak.

I got it working... just had to rename it to Orion instead Jailbreak... how the hell did someone make that error?

It's great fun but very confusing without any sort of tutorial or storyline... Is there anywhere I can read up to learn about how to play and what the game is about?

The "old" install files linked to Jailbreak because I used this tutorial to create them:

Mail.google.com

I copied and pasted the Steam Registry code and forgot to rename it. It has been fixed in all the current downloads of Beta 1.2.


If you are having weird issues, check your Steam/SteamApps/SourceMods/ folder and rename "Jailbreak" to "Orion".

should fix the installer naming the folder JailBreak. A lot of people are just going to write off the mod as not working and delete it.

That's a lie. Linuxwarz has the JailBreak folder issue, I am sorry but you guys really need to learn how to code and test before releasing.

I think maybe the humans and aliens could do with a bit of a redesign.... idk.

They just look so.... bland compared to their surroundings. Plus their colors don't let them stick out very much.

Yeah so is anyone actually playing this? I found 5 or 6 servers, but all of them were empty except one. And that server only had one person playing.

Does it say "Jailbreak" under the game tab? If so you downloaded the bugged installer. For some reason they named the Orion folder Jailbreak and it makes it unplayable. To fix this go into your sourcemods folder and just rename the folder to Orion

I'm a bit of a broken record I know...but I'm still waiting on a tutorial that was said to come out today and I still haven't seen one. It's hard to get into a game when you've got absolutely no documentation to go along with it... =/

Haven't gotten to play with players yet, but it looks enjoyable.

One bug I noticed is when you're reloading the sniper rifle and sprint at the same time, the model goes upside down and clips through your arm.

This mod looks kickass guys. Love the update.

This is not a good way to get on steamworks. I tried the Moddb link yesterday, the file was removed, tried the Filefront link today, waited an hour for it to download, and the file was corrupted. Not trying again until tomorrow.

How exactly do I add the ip's of the servers so then I'm not stuck with the original four servers the game comes with.
I refreshed and seen only one person in a server. I was hoping to get in one where there's many people.
Help? x:
