No update for GOG version

Post by Edorf » Thu Jul 25, 2019 2:07 am

Hi

Still there`s no update for the Empires offline installer over at GOG. Posted about this over at their forum a few days ago but nothing but silence.
So how will this work out between Slitherine and GOG? The GOG version is not using a serial number so the patch from here is obviously not going to work.

Hi,

We are planning another update fairly soon, once that's ready we will see what we can do.

Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for your reply, Tamas.

I hope something can be worked out so that those of us that don`t wish to use the GOG Galaxy client can update our game too:)

A possible workaround - if you install a game through Galaxy, you can still run it directly from its directory, e.g. via a shortcut. In which case you could use Galaxy only for updates. However, the computer would obviously need to be net-connected.

For an offline machine you'd need the update files, though.

Yeah, I`m playing games on my offline computer(s) only. I don`use platforms like Steam or GOG Galaxy and this will be for indefinitely.

A variation on the workaround is to use Galaxy on the machine you use for downloads, and then copy the entire directory across to your offline machine (via USB, whatever). That presumes, though, that the updates don't make changes to the registry, which can't be guaranteed, and is definitely more of a hassle anyway.

On some occasions, Galaxy is needed to get updates per some games. :( Thus you won't have the updated install at the moment.
I have noticed this with one of my previous purchases & (I think) only entails new games.
I will add, this does get 'fixed' in time.

I will, also, add...I would never purchase a Slitherene/Matrix game from GOG or Steam for that matter.
Slitherene & Matrix games are already DRM free...but that is me.
