Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2
With the landing bug hopefully fixed, it's time to try this again. So here's Diaspora Patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2. If you have R1.1 and the builds from the other thread, there's very little new in here (some updated FREDdocs and updated FRED builds is about it). If you're still on 1.0.4, then it's definitely worth the upgrade.

Once again, if there are no new bugs reported, we'll bump this one up to the official patch release very soon.

As with previous patches, this patch does not require you to have earlier versions of the patch in order to work (and will in fact delete earlier versions).

As the person who first reported the landing bug, I will certainly try this tomorrow :-)

If someone could get the updated files after installation and post them for Linux and OSX users that would be great  :)

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2
The VP File hasn't in fact changed since this post. The only real differences in RC2 are some extra Freddocs (Which aren't important until the SCP finish porting FRED to Linux and Mac) and the updated builds. Echelon 9 will no doubt get the Mac builds up soon but in both cases we're simply building straight from SVN so this build should work (unless you also want to take part in the multiplayer beta).

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2
Having problems with RC2. Can run all patches including 1.1 RC1 but when patched to RC2 launcher keeps crashing and needs a full reboot in order to close it down. Same thing happens if I try and run the debug build. Repatched using RC1 and works fine again.

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2
That's rather strange.

Do you get that with these builds? Or with these?

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 2
No but now with both of those builds it goes to a black screen and hangs. No response to any controls and cant get get into task manager so have to reboot. I'm going to update my video card drivers (long overdue) and try it again with a clean install. I'll get back to you.

UPDATE:

Drivers updated (Cat 13.12). Clean install of Diaspora and patched straight to RC2. No issues with launcher and can start game now however the screen is cropped. Running at 1920*1080 which is monitor's native res and the screen is cropped on the left and right. This didnt happen with previous patches, including 1.1 RC1. Done another clean install and patched straight to RC1 and res is fine but patch to RC2 and it crops the picture again.

Just installed the patch over my existing installation, everything worked and I could successfully complete the first mission. The eagle has landed, I repeat the eagle has landed ;-)

That's not a bug. The discussion about that issue is taking place here. Feel free to add your two cents.


Anyway, given that the biggest issue with the game seems to be fixed, I think we might as well make this into the official 1.1 release. I'll get the team right on it.

Ah. Managed to find the option on the launcher. Well can launch Diaspora now and no issues. Combat landings seem to work fine as well for what it's worth :)
