Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
The code is freely available, you literally could compile it yourself. :D

I know that doesn't help much if you aren't a coder, but it does show we're fairly confident that this isn't a virus.

Thanks for this many answers :)

Makes me feel a tiny bit more confident :-)

Just out of interest, where did you hear about us from?

The mirror for the 1.1 DMG for mac appears to be down.  Do you know if there's another copy of it floating around on the internet somewhere?

 
Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
In theory, you should be able to use any recent standard FSO binary, such as the latest stable release, 3.7.2 here, although you might want to wait confirmation from an actual Diaspora team member.

The 1.1 patch contains more than just a binary though. It's actually a quite massive patch. Unfortunately when it comes to Mac OS X, I only have up to the 1.0.4 patch personally.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
Oh, right, when I saw he was asking for some sort of binary, I assumed he was looking for the game exe, I forgot you guys neatly packaged your patches into an installer :P

 
Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
I can do the packaging or whatever myself if I need too - is Diaspora itself open source?  If so where is the repo?

 
Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
You could try to downloading the Linux archive and extract its contents into the fso folder.

I just had a look at it with 7zip, it's got several layers, but at some point you should find a readme, a .vp file, and a data folder containing several movies. Extract the data folder and the .vp into your Diaspora folder and then grab a 3.7.2 mac binary and put it there as well. Then you hould be pretty much set up.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
I still have an archive of the Diaspora 1.1 data uploaded here, but as X3NO-Life-Form noted, you should be able to just download the Linux archives for both 1.1 and 1.1.1, and pair that with a recent FSO build.

Apologies, that's my fault. Was hosted on space my former ISP gave me alongside my connection; and I've subsequently cancelled that account when moving country.

I should be able to dig up the old Mac packaged .DMG for v1.1; although we never seemed to get a Mac release of the later v1.1.1 patch out (!).

Well 1.1.1 was basically just a fix for mission 6 IIRC. So you could just package it up with 1.1.

How would you rate this release on an itemized parental guidelines basis?

(language, violence, nudity, sex, gore, drugs, themes and content, etc, etc.)

If Freespace 2 has parental guidelines, then Diasporas rating would most likely be identical.

Whatever the DVDs for Battlestar Galactica get is probably the same rating we would have since we've tried to stay as close as possible to the show.

Unlike the show Diaspora doesn't have any graphic sex or person to person violence. But you're still dealing with the nuclear destruction of mankind.

I can't remember if we have any sexual references in the pilot banter. I doubt we have anything too graphic though.

Echelon9, did you ever find that Mac 1.1 DMG?  It and the Linux links for 1.1 are both gone now.  I have the 1.1 VP from my Windows machine but would I need a custom build for the Mac or just run 3.7.2/.4?

Diaspora shouldn't have any features missing from regular FSO builds.
