I've temporarily uploaded my previously-downloaded copy of the Windows 1.1 patch here.

I've temporarily uploaded my previously-downloaded copy of the Windows 1.1 patch here.

I just registered to say THANK YOU!  ;)

Yes, the official download for the 1.1 patch is so slow it's essentially broken.

I tried to grab the official patch several times, but with an estimated download time ranging from 4-12 hours for a 300 mb file... forget about it... it just breaks.


Yours worked like a charm though.

I'm glad it helped somebody else. :yes:

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
Hello there, I am pretty new here. Downloaded this game and followed the instructions as specified for OSX (at the moment I am running Yosemite) and the game crashes immediately (even after applying the patch).

What I did was:
1. Downloaded Diaspora_R1_Mac
2. Mounted the DMG
3. Dragged the app to my app folder.
4. When to the Diaspora folder and ran the command there called run_me_once (or something like that).
5. Executed wxlauncher and watched it crash immediately.
6. Downloaded the patch 1.1
7. Mounted the patch.
8. Copied everything into the diaspora package/folder and replaced whatever was duplicated.
9. Attempted again the run the wxlauncher.
10. Watch it crash again.
11. Redo everything twice from step 1 to 10... filled with frustration.
12. Registered on this forum and published my frustration.


Being completely honest, the game looks amazing... on youtube and I was hoping to give it a try. Am I missing something?

Hello,

Can you have a look at whether this file exists, and if so attach it to a new post here? /Users/<you_user_name>/Library/FS2_Open/data/fs2_open.log

We are presently looking at reports of crashes on modern OS X with an outdated middle-ware library (SDL) that the fs2open engine uses behind the scenes. [Update: Verified. OS X support for 10.10+ will require a new binary release of the FS2Open engine we use behind the scenes.]

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
There should be a tutorial for you in-game that will get you familiarized with the controls.  So, install it, run it, and go from there.  Post back if you have problems getting it to run.  Also, be sure to install the full install file, then both of the patches, instructions should be in the OP.

Hi Echelon9,

I'm also experiencing problems on OSX Yosemite. I'm on the 1.1.1 version.
wxLauncher works fine. I also ran the "once" script. And tried playing around with different FS2_Open versions.

Here are the files and other errors:
fs2_open.log: http://pastebin.com/5x80tePz
errors in popup crash: http://pastebin.com/EfWjUkp1

edit: This seems to work a bit better, but seems to hang sometimes: http://swc.fs2downloads.com/builds/OSX/FS2_Open_Ant9_20150716_2777459.zip

Hello Tibod,

Based on those logs (thanks for providing) you are experiencing the bug with the fs2open engine's use of an outdated middle-ware library (SDL).

Unfortunately, you'll likely need to await the issuance of a new binary release. New fs2open engine releases are drop-in replacements for Diaspora's binary on OS X.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
Thanks for your answer. Based on your previous answer I went digging in the FS2_Open stuff and found the Antipodes release. I tried using the last one here:  http://swc.fs2downloads.com/builds/OSX/

Now it seems to work OK. The only problem is that my FPS is very low (I'm running with the settings of the "once" script + the recommended Diaspora settings). I found out that the first rendered part when after starting the campagne does not work well. And then when you start in the Viper bay it's smooth. As soon as you exit the viperbay (and some starlight gets rendered on the insides of your viper) it drops to 1 fps...
My specs are this are https://support.apple.com/kb/SP704?locale=en_US. And I have the model with the extra "NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory and automatic graphics switching". The logs tell me it also uses the geforce instead of the on-board intel.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
I'd suggest you look at disabling our GLSL-driven shadows. This is done via a command line option, that can be accessed through the Launcher.

In that build, -disable_shadows will turn off the shadows feature, as it can lead to a big performance hit (so much so, that the current master builds have reversed the command line option so that shadows need to be explicitly enabled now with -enable_shadows).

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
That did the trick! Fortunately I do not know what I'm missing with the shadows turned off, so that's great!
Also, using the mouse it is a lot easier than the gamepad. :P

Thanks for the help and the great game!

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
Hey guys, just came by accident across your game and wanted to try it out.

I'm still not sure to try it out, while I don't know if this could contain viruses.

I know im might be stupid, but im seriously careful with the internet and free downloads/games....

Considering there's hundreds of people on this site alone that have downloaded, installed, and played it, myself included, I highly doubt that's the case. :P

www.virustotal.com is your friend.

EDIT: You can have the site scan a file hosted on a website by pasting the URL under the section "URL", so you don't have to upload the file.

So, right-click the download link, click "copy link location" or similar, and paste it into virustotal's URL box, and scan it!

The exe for this game does cause some AV programs to throw out a false positive.  I think BitDefender did that for me, but I use Avast now.  I know you don't know me, but I can assure you if you download the game using the links provide here it it free of viruses.  Don't be afraid just because they are torrent files.  It's just a distribution method.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.
