Re: Update Failed

I just ran into a similar bug while updating to 1.6.4. Deleting the 'cache' and 'Temp' directories, then launching the game again fixed it for me. The following line is what made me try this: Updater.cpp:469: void proxy::network::Updater::readCache(const string&): Warning: Could not open "../cache/C...

Re: Hot Seat game support

Bringing back this topic, as I’ve had some friends interested in Pandora now that a French translation has been added.
So, any news on this? Is hot seat multpilayer planned to be added at some point, or has the idea been dropped?

Re: Announcement: Your chance to affect the future of Pandor

Hey! Just hopping in to show my support to your project: it’s very nice from you to dedicate time to improve this game, and from the developers to give you the tools allowing you to do it. Pandora is the only 4X game I’m still playing, alongside Alpha Centauri (I’ve been playing this last one since ...

Re: [Linux] graphical glitch with Kraken unit on screen

I see no issues with the picture. I am however using the Fglrx driver, version 14.10.2. It is most likely a bug in the free driver. Installing Fglrx seems to be the most pragmatic solution. I’m quite sure using fglrx instead of radeon would fix this glitch, but I won’t do it ;) I use a free system ...

Okay, that’s what I initially thought.
Fine by me, if I bought these games it’s not to do some wrong to the developers/publishers afterwards.

Re: Redeeming Your Steam Key

Hello! I’ve bought First Contact on launch and now Eclipse of Nashira, so I guess I can claim one Steam key for each. But I don’t use Steam and don’t intend to. I was wondering: is it okay if I redeem my keys and give them to a friend, or is it something you disapprove of? (or simply no technically ...

Re: For Alpha Centauri fanatics: forum and French translatio

Sadly, I'm not a translator.
I've merely hunted downed the needed files, did a bit of transcoding for the videos and compiled everything in an easy-to-use pack.

The real credit should go to the French translation team: Jean-Luc Chabrier, Nathalie Marlier & Jean-Claude Ducerf.

Re: Forbid y-axis wrap please

Well, it doesn't break anything gameplay-wise. It might even be better than being stuck at the poles like in Alpha Centauri. It just feels a bit… odd :wink: Piruparka: It's a torus, I'm sure about this one :mrgreen: A cylinder (even with round edges) would imply roughly the same behaviour than a sph...

Re: Ruins

Ruins frequency could be regulated through an option at world generation, like alien aggression is.
With "medium" being the more balanced frequency, subject to change with testing reports.

Re: Pandora: First Contact can now be pre-ordered on Steam

Do you plan to keep providing the game by your own means?
If there is an extension coming, I hope it won't be a Steam exclusive.

Bah, I'm quite confident on this ;)

Re: hotseat?

There is one sucky way you can get around it even on one computer. Host a game with multiplayer direct connect. Start another instance of Pandora and direct connect with default parameters. Both instances of Pandora will be in the same game. Obviously not very good at all and has a lot of downsides...

crash in update to 1.2.5

I ran into a crash today while trying to update my retail version (1.2.0) to the last beta (1.2.5). Downloading and uncompressing goes well, then this happens: [2014-Apr-30 23:02:23] Pandora Updater 1.2.5 (r4657, Standalone Beta 2 Linux-x86_64 Apr 29 2014 20:11:05) [2014-Apr-30 23:02:23] Copyright (...
