Re: Beta patch 1.3

From what I read it will appear first on Steam. Hopefully a Slitherine version appears very quickly after that.

Update: beta is now available for Steam users.

Re: Change Settings = ctd

I mis-spoke re the crashing setting panel. It still crashes on my Surface Pro 3 when saving settings even at 100 DPI. Correct, despite the crash the changed settings are saved. while going into settings does cause a CTD on some versions / O/S etc, the settings altered do still change, so matters lit...

Re: Screen resolution

I fixed this issue on my Surface Pro3 by switching the default 150% DPI setting to 100%.

Re: Change Settings = ctd

I have discovered the source of this issue on my Surface Pro3: DPI setting. By default my device runs at 150% DPI. If I switch that to 100% the dual mouse pointers run on top of each other and present no problem. Also, the settings window no longer crashes when I save my settings. At least in my cas...

Re: Basic interface questions

You can play in a window. Go into settings, uncheck full screen and use the slider to reduce the game screen size to something less than full screen.

Re: Just purchased, trouble loading

If you are running Windows 7, 8 or 10 you have built-in unzipping (don't remember if XP had that or not). So you don't need to buy WinZip or any other unzip utility. There are two files in the zip you downloaded and you simply need to unzip them to the same location and double click on the exe file ...

Re: Stuck in tutorial

After pressing F1 to exit the tutorial, you press Esc to exit to the main screen. Also running Windows 10 Pro. I can't do anything at the moment since the game won't let my build a colonizer or don any actions what so ever. Everywhere I click in the game it states:"disabled by tutorial ". I am locke...

Re: Polaris Sector Site is online!

My desktop machine is over 5 years old and the game plays just fine. My videocard is also very old but no issues other than I may have to play some games at lower settings. That said no one can guarantee how well things will work on your particular machine. Almost all games from Matrix/Slitherine ar...

Re: Polaris Sector Invalid Serial Key

I always recommend folks buy from Matrix/Slitherine first, then register your game on Steam. That way, if for some reason there is an issue with your Steam install, you can install the non-Steam version. If you buy from Matrix/Slitherine you only buy once and can still do Steam. It does not work the...

Re: Change Settings = ctd

My Surface Pro 3 is a full Windows 10 PC in every respect. You can remove the keyboard and use as a touch device (tablet) but I doubt that has anything to do with this dual mouse pointer issue. I do not experience the dual mouse issue in the game, just on the separate settings panel. Tac2i, your iss...

They move together but only the colored mouse works when clicking on items in the window. This happens with both a blue tooth mo...

Minor graphic issue on my Surface Pro 3 at default resolution of 2160x1440. The exit door distortion was also present in the 1.01 version. I don't see this issue on my Win10 desktop machine at its default of 1920x1080. I also note that if I lower the default resolution of 2160x1440 via the game sett...
