Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

    I just wanted to download your precious gem, but this rapid share thing makes it really hard, after two waiting cycles I must pass a captcha. I suggest you register a free account with box.net. This gives you some personal hassle free storage space. The free account has a size limit of 25 MB per file. I assume this would be sufficient.

    Good luck with your game.

    Cheers

    Weird , i tried all the download site and they work.

    I forgot that it may be necessary to download also Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) to make it work.

    Someone can tell me if it is needed , i already have installed visual studio 2008 on all my computers and can't check for myself.

    Hi Littorio

    Firstly welcome to the SSC! :)

    I managed to download your game, but upon un-archiving it, I came across this error while using 7-Zip " CRC failed in StarShipSim\CEGUIBase.dll. File is broken" Hope that helps.
  • edited 4:35PM
    This looks very cool. I'll wait before trying it til i see if others here can get it working. i've been working on a very similar game for many years. I hope to announce here by end of year when it's finally in a playable condition.

    Hi Littorio



    Welcome to SSC and I was able to download it fine from the download area but there is a problem when extracting the file I see this error:



    CRC failed in 'StarShipSim\CEGUIBase.dll'. File is broken.





    If you want to give me the location of the archive that is fully working I can upload it again for you.

    Ok a new error message "StarShipSim\d3dx9_43.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette" My Visual C++ thingy was recently updated. Trying to install the package you earlier linked to is older than my current install. I am worried that if I do install it some other things (mainly Steam games) will refuse to work. Any advice?



    Also found another error message hiding behind the first one "OGRE EXCEPTION(7:InternalErrorException): Could not load dynamic library .\RenderSystem_Direct3D9. System Error: %1 is not a valid Win32 application. in DynLib::load at ..\src\OgreDynLib.ccp (line 81)"

    Hi Littorio

    If you mean the d3dx9_43.dll , its now coming up with the error that the application could not be found. It is still there, I didn't delete it, just renamed it. I noticed that in the Orge. cfg file that the video mode is set to "Video Mode=1920 x 1200 @ 32-bit colour" Could changing this help?

    YAY got it to download but same problem as Geraldine.
  • mdaddettmdaddett StarShipSim Developer

    I have replicated the problem in windows xp mode and i solved it by deleting d3dx9_43.dll and installing latest directx
  • sscadminsscadmin DarkOne

    Littorio what is the specs for running the game?



    Is it safe to say that specs should be something like this:

    - OS = WinXP,Vista,7

    - Gfx = Latest gfx drivers and directx9/10 installed (redistributed package)

    - Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)



    Because it looks like the last error was WinXP only issue? So is d3dx9_43.dll inside the archive or will it be pulled from it?

    I removed d3dx9_43.dll from zip.

    To solve the problem install the latest directx.

    It works on xp,vista,7

    Directx donwnload

    Great it runs! :) Now what do I do?

    A HA! Found the readme, the controls are going to take a little time to get used to, but yes I like the concept, old style battleship encounters in space! :)

    The installer include the directx web setup.

    I thought it was a smart idea use the latest directx sdk when i installed visual studio , now everyone need it too :oops:



    I have uploaded a video on youtube that show a zoom out to the entire solar system







    and 2 new screenshot

    Got some nice scale there Littorio, the zoom out was a nice example of the size of the scale your creating.



    I have yet to download and try this out yet, but I will. I take it that all green squares are friendlies and red is the baddies. Do you control every unit in your game or just that main ship?
  • mdaddettmdaddett StarShipSim Developer
    edited 4:35PM
    Green are friend and red are enemies. Only the squares with a name are ships , all the others are missiles. For now you can control any unit , also enemy and missiles.
