ORION BETA 1.2 GOES PUBLIC - DOWNLOAD NOW!
Today marks a very special day for all of us. This has been months in the making but completely worth the wait! We've completely re-shaped the Orion Source Beta. It is light years ahead of the previous releases in terms of performance, optimization, stability, and features. We've gone back and re-worked the entire weapons system, wrote a brand new grenade system, completed over 100 game tweaks and fixes, removed all server crash bugs and added 5 brand new maps!
We are extremely happy to release this and we will be posting updates all week as well as playing with the community. Be sure to visit our forums to obtain exclusive media as well as arranged playtest sessions and more!

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!

Let's get Orion on Steam!
Downloading as soon as I get home.
Only one thing - could you add the location to the serverlist?
Im downlodading now
You weren't kidding when you said today
Full install file has the directory set on Jailbreak for some reason. I renamed it to the full filename of the game.
Also, even though I don't see any servers, I end up crashing when I try to spawn after I "Create a Server"
Uh oh, David, looks like you skipped a certain step in that tutorial ;)
Anyway, folder name should be "Orion", or whatever the >modname<_english.txt file in the resource folder is called. Or rename the >modname<_english.txt file to be exactly the same as how you named the folder. Then you should be able to see servers.
This worked, shame we have to do this >.<
download finished and it says its corrupted. :(
I am getting the same error and I have tried 3 times now
I've stated the uploads to the moddb are corrupt - please use a different mirror while I re-upload to ModDB.
same **** 1 hour to download to get a error. i want to kill someone for that
The .exe's themselves are fine. The data sizes on the ModDB links were fine as well, not sure how they were corrupt. Will be fixed by Noon.
Damn it! Quit releasing mods when I can't play them! Anyways looks awesome!
I'll get my server up when I get a chance :3
Also, the torrent gives a 404 error.
Fix the typo too ;)
"automatically update to make there game Beta 1.2-friendly!"
"automatically update to make their game Beta 1.2-friendly!"
I get this Engine error everytime I connect to a server.
SDK Base 07 and EP2 installed and inicialized.
Launch EP2 and SDK Base '07 through Steam, then try connect to a server.
I havent renamed the mod dir :D
Rename it Jailbreak -> Orion
As I said, I have already inicialized both of em ;)
Oh my bad.
Out done yourself again praz, i see. lol
The installer wants to install the mod in this folder:
Sure this is the right game? ^^
When I run the setup file an error pops up: The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program.
Downloaded it 2 times, different servers.
ModDB upload is corrupted. Try another site. Torrent or FTP for instance.
Creating a new installer to fix the file path.
Uploading to ModDB again. Will be fixed by days end.
It ended up having the Jail Break extension because I used there tutorial so the installer auto-detects your steam folder.
come on guys Dl this awesome mod and play!
In the process of re-uploading the Full install with the correct directory and re-uploading both files to the ModDB database due to corrupted files.
hmm any dinos in this update? i distinctly remember someone mentioning dino's (unless it was something else)
Dinosaurs ARE a feature of the Orion universe - however, they are NOT featured in Beta 1.2.
They will be in a future release of the game.
now more people (hopefully) will play all day long!
unfortunately my pc broke but i hope ill get it tomorrow...
anyways, HAVE FUN EVERYONE!!!!
nice troll orion team
files are corrupted
Blame the awesome ModDB uploading service.
It's in the process of re-uploading.
How can you know if you've fixed all the server crashing bugs? Just add a "known" in there so you won't have to overstate your improvements. Maybe just a pet peeve of mine, dunno.
Good work in any case, I hope you get on SteamWorks!
1.2 has been in development since January. Of the very numerous play tests done (David's emails haunt me), not once has the servers crashed in recent months. So I think it's safe to say that the mod itself won't be at fault anymore for server crashes, though the Source engine, server mods and such still might cause a crash.
There is always the change that the game will crash, just like it could in CSS and other big name Source engine games.
However, we have literally done months of stress testing where it's gotten to the point where we can say it won't crash. It's not nearly as prevalent as it would have to be for people to complain about it.
You just said yourself that there's always the risk that the server will crash, how's that possible if the program is free from server crashing bugs? There's always the risk, claiming that your software is crash free is pretty big.
Torrents.linuxwarz.com not found broken link
Parbleu ! Awesome! Download!
I've been waiting for this for so long; thank you!
Wow, after spending forever downloading this I go to run the installer only to get a "File corrupted" error... totally lame. =/
We apologize for that.
We've just re-uploaded BOTH the Upgrade and Full installs to ModDB. They are now LIVE so use them if you need to re-download. They also have fixed install directories.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
finally got it to start downloading. However it is going to take a while.
are there any EU servers up? i can only see 2 in dallas
See you at Orion guys! And btw, use another mirror, moddb one is slow and sometimes **** up.
Wow, the new maps alone are enough to get me excited. :D
Slow download speed. notks
I see they got rid of their stupid inaccurate news updates claiming falsely which game is actually required.
played one hour, seems interesting.
I hope more people are interested in this mod. so you can go to steamworks.
I think the moddb links are fixed TRY TO GET ONE MIRROR WITH 90+ capacity i just downloaded Orion in 15 min :-)
MODDB MIRRORS ARE FIXED! USE THEM!
