Evochron Mercenary 2.828 available...

Version 2.828 is now available for download. As usual, the installer can also be used to update older versions of the game. It can be downloaded here:
http://www.starwraith.com/evochronmerce ... nloads.htm

This update includes the following improvements:

- 3D radar updated to reflect distance as well as direction via blip size scaling based on proximity.
- AI controlled capital ship pre-jump point placement scanning accuracy increased to reduce potential jump point collisions.
- Under certain conditions while travelling in deep space, a station license for a player built station could be lost, now fixed.
- Certain contract actions in multiplayer could result in effects on single player reputation levels, now locked.
- Rotation input adjusted to provide a more linear result throughout the full range of variable control.
- Variable input control reversed for inertial forward/reverse thrusters and aligned for linear input.

Very much appreciate the last one. :cool:
Though the toughest part must have been point 3.
If there would be the term "improbability-bug", this one surely deserves the predicate. :P
Great job.

Either my downloader is bonkers or something's wrong with that link. Anyone actually downloading already?

I just downloaded and installed it.
But - I had connection problems to the web site off and on last week or so and a trace route showed a hop down in the path.
(it was affecting other sire for me also).
but try a tracert to the main site and see if you see any problems (timeouts).

I had this too, some days ago with a beta built of 2.828, that's why I started to use a downloading software, to be able to resume a suspended download. But this time it's worth, I can't even start the download. I'm just thrown between these 2 links:
http://www.starwraith.com/evochronmerce ... nloads.htm

and when clicking the download button I land here:

http://www.starwraith.com/index.htm

and from here I click "download the game" and land on

http://www.starwraith.com/evochronmerce ... nloads.htm

again, ad nauseam. The downloader isn't even running. Hard to believe it's only me...

Its ok I'v got it going now.
worked as soon as I disabled "internet download manager".

Which was strange because the same link works fine with IDM on my other computer.

Same here, but with FDM which is pretty new to me. I suspect that probably 2 instances of FDM where running cause when I thought I had disabled it the download finally started: with FDM active! :P

Thanks! Downloading now.

This build has been updated to fix a value mismatch in the text.dat file (line 1133). You can either download the update as a whole, or a replacement text.dat file is available in this thread: http://www.starwraith.com/forum/viewthr ... ?tid=11409

The Steam version has also been updated and will auto-update next time you log on if you are using the Steam version.

I assume this is the line where 15 should be changed to 25?

Yup ... okay ... just now went to the link (at first I thought it was a DL link to the .exe file).
