Update to v1.8 for the game can now be found in the download section (thanks CaptainKal )
Wow, that's great news for me. In the past I invested much time to resolve install problems and setup the game to really have all its features working.
I'm eager to try this new update and see what it does.
I think the patch only updates the English translation and it is a couple of years old so you will probably already have it.
My mistake for putting new in the first post, I will take the word new out and add v1.8.
Thanks anyway for the download! I'll take anything I can get. Actually I will have to move this game to my more powerful desktop system, so the timing is very good.
Thanks, also thanks to CaptainKal !
I never did acquire this one on Gamersgate when I saw it and did a little searching and you cannot find Precursors on Steam, GOG or Gamersgate anymore... guess I am out of luck 🙂
I think GOG or Gamersgate are the best canditades to look for on a regular basis (Iast time I saw it 2 years ago for a low price, 8$-15$ or so).
But try dropping a gentle mail to them, maybe they make you an offer ?
Think I saw it about a year ago on Gamersgate but their maybe other reasons for the game has being withdrawn from sale, probably copyright issues or compatibility.
I have a dilemma here... CaptainKal wants to upload his version of 'The Precursors' here. Can I get in trouble here for allowing this?
You cannot buy this game from any retailer anywhere that I could find. And Deep Shadows (developer) website is all but dead. Could this fall under abandonment?
It will take some time, to upload the game!! (It's nearly 7 GB). If it's not abandonware, then just keep it, for back up!!!!
Both the english and the russian version are huge in size, 7GB.
Other than the Wesp Update 1.8, I could provide some additional files necessary to make the game stable.
I'm currently running fine with the previous patch 1.7, but I doubt the 1.8 has corrected the crash issues. Also there is an option to use or not use the 'official russian patch 1.1' : But it's a dilema: if you use it, you will prevent some crashes, but you will have less interesting features. If you skip it you need some game files to be changed (I can upload them).
Done! PM is now clear!! And uploading is halted untill the situation about the state of the becomes clear!!
