OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD!
It's been quiet here for a long time now. Now, I bring gifts!
I'm uploading a new version of the same old beta right now. It includes several bugfixes, as well as new art assets. Mostly asteroids and new engine glows for the Mon Calamari cruisers and the Quasar carrier. I also increased the population cap to 50 since the crash fix fixed all crashes. Some people seem to still have some issues in applying it properly. This is how I got it to work:
I recently bought GoGs Empire at war Gold pack. ( Gog.com ) It works on all versions of windows, including 10, which is what I now run on my new machine. GoG ensures that every game it has on its platform runs on almost any system. With this you no longer need to install any 64 bit patch, or crack, to get it to work. Just install and play. Then, after applying this crash fix to both the EAW executable as well as the FoC executable ( Youtube.com ) I can run the game at 50 pop cap without crashes, this even holds up in 2v2 skirmish vs hard AIs. Here is a video of me doing that: Youtube.com
This new version has no new drastic changes, only a few asthetics and bug fixes. I still felt it fair enough to release it to the public anyway, since I figured some people might be interested in this regardless.
