|There are those who say this day would never come. What are they to say now? - Prophet of Truth
After a very, very, very long 3 years of sporadic development, 1.500 has finally been released.
Current users will need to update, to the new GCQL2 Lobby, and then update/install DarkSpace from the Launch tab. Players with beta installed can copy their Data folder from /.Cache/DarkSpaceBeta to /.Cache/DarkSpace , which will reduce the patch size considerably.
For new users and everyone else, a full installer for 1.500 is available on the Downloads page, or by clicking here directly. Other mirrors should be available in the next few days.
A lengthy list of changes can be found in the Development Log, and the 1.500 Manual revision will commence in the next few days.
Player that get an "Unable to initialize display" error, please go to the Launch tab, run Darkspace (Setup) and verify that the display mode setting is correct for your system. Ideally it should be set at your desktop resolution or Windowed. Changing resolution setting is often enough to clear the error.
|Grab two friends and prepare to battle another triad to the death! While some ships are banned (PD, ED, Scouts, and ICC Sensor Frigate), come up with any three-ship group you think would be best in a faceoff and go sign up!
Further details and the place to signup are contained in the Official Event Signup Thread. Better hurry, though -- the battle is THIS Saturday!
|If you're hankering for some semi-organized combat and melee excitement, the ICC are facing off against the combined forces of the UGTO and K'Luth at Scientia this weekend. Come join the battle!
The event is being organized by JBud; check out general event information here. If you want to sign up as ICC to Defend Scientia, head to this thread. If you prefer to be on the combined UGTO and K'Luth attacking side, head for this thread.
Please note that balance is not being enforced via code, but it is requested that if one side is vastly outnumbered, some players volunteer to switch sides. If you're willing, you might want to mod some extra ships in advance on another faction.
|Avast, ye scurvy scum! It be a day fer a'wenchin' an' drinkin' the ol' rum. Mayhap we be findin' some o' Davey
|If current projections hold Hurricane "Ike" will be hitting Austin, TX this weekend on Saturday. There is a very good possibility that DarkSpace will go down on Saturday due to the coming storm. If this does happen, then all subscribers will receive a coupon for any playtime lost due to any outages that may occur.|
