How to install and start play Diaspora ?
Hello.
I downloaded and installed the latest patch but when start the .exe it told me some dll is missing.
Where is the download directories for the game in this site? or some installer guide?

I'm guessing it was oal32.dll or similar? If so, try this:

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Yeah, the patch just updates the game, it won't install the whole thing.

* karajorma is hugely surprised the patch managed to even install without the rest of the game!

Yeah, perhaps make it check for the existence of Diaspora files in the chosen folder.

Re: How to install and start play Diaspora ?
I thought it did! When I put the Windows installer for the patch together it was meant to simply patch to the same folder the original game had been downloaded to! I never actually told it to ask where to install if that folder didn't exist. I guess the installer must have automatically added that in.

I'll have to take another look at the installer next time we release a patch.
