Version 2.928 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:

- Code changes implemented to improve overall memory efficiency for shader based objects.
- Reputation levels could drop to default values under certain rare conditions, now fixed.
- Automatic bypass added for intro video if system is unable to play video on first launch.
- Ships entering radar range would sometimes require manual targeting, now automatic.


The server program has also been updated to matching version number 2.928 and includes the following improvements:

- Lost display device recovery system added (GPU enabled version), allowing the program to restore itself if interrupted due to display device interruption/reset.
- Auto reset option added, allowing the operator to automatically reset the server at a specified interval of time.

It's not working (from moddb). The file I downloaded won't run, and gamershell won't even alow me to download?

Vice tests all his upgrades before releasing them to the general public. He probably forgot to delete the beta (test) designation before releasing this one.


P.S. Then, again, the button says "Download the Demo" ... and I don't recall it ever mentioning the demo (since it's really the same file as the full game).

It's the official release. 'b' may be in the filename occasionally now, depending on location.
