Vector Prime (and TSH) get fixed! Now you can finally play against your friends online, without the fear of encountering a Sound System Error.
Thanks to a fellow contributor to the Vector Prime project called adoxa, we are proud to present a new, fixed version of the Haegemonia game executable.
This file is basically the same as the english v2.1 variant, with two VERY important changes:
- The Sound System Error has been completely fixed by use of a bypass. This has been very thoroughly tested using a small test-modification, which has been built to reproduce the problem. The end results are very pleasing: even after many hours of gameplay we have received no error. Please note that the test-mod produced the error in the first 3 minutes, right after the production of the first squadron of "extreme sound system tester" starfighters. These fighters have been designed to reproduce the problem: they boasted eight weapons with an extremely fast refire rate. The fixed executable completely fixed this problem, we have received no errors no matter how many we have built.
- The Multiplayer Invalid CD-Key Error has also been completely fixed. Important note: this does NOT remove cd-key protection, you will STILL need a valid cd-key to use the game. This only affects multiplayer games: when playing multiplayer over the internet, you could have received an invalid cd-key error for no reason, even if you have a valid, retail-bought cd-key. This has dropped you from the game instantaneously, disallowing you more gameplay than a couple of seconds. Now, you will not receive this error, and can play multiplayer to your heart's extent.
Also, in the meantime, the Galactic Elections are still in progress. Check out developer dirtbag's recruitment video, and make sure to drop a vote for the cause of: Vector Prime!
