6.50 is the original name for 7.00

It has 6.50 on the game window (by mistake) but 7.00 on the About and Copyright windows.

If i switch ON the "Generate NPR as non-TN" will they eventually advance to TN status or just stay low-tech forever ??

Stay low-tech. NPR does not know how to advance from conventional start to TN status.

I can't delete the example game.   I get an error message instead.   Error 3052 was generated by DAO. Recordset File sharing lock count exceeded.   Increase MaxLocksPerFile registry entry.

This patch can only be applied to version 4.  2 or later.   To apply the patch, unzip the patch file and copy the files as follow:

Maybe it can, but from my (very limited) experience it wont work.   From a perspective of someone new to the forum, what you first encounter are the stickies:

* v7.  00 Patch
* Aurora v5.  54 Full Installation

Which implies that you need to apply the patch over the full 5.  54 install.   But doing so resulted in endless crushes due to missing image files.   I had to download the Aurora v6.  43 which is "hidden" in the portable sub-forum to make it work.

I think it might be best to clarify this in the instructions.  Furthermore, IMO its best to always add the instructions to the patch as well (readme.  txt) for those of us who download first and instal much later e.  g.   at work with effy internet access.  Also IMO it is best to put the files in the correct structure so we can just copy paste them.

Honestly you should put up a complete package with every major version because new people always get this problem.
Edit: I should mention I had no trouble the last time I installed, I swear all I needed was 5.40 and the 7 patch. But I'm not on my pc ATM so I can't check what's actually in the archives.

The reason those files aren't just put in a folder is that it will simply overwrite those files, meaning to still have everything you need to keep everything every patch in the folders which just eats up room.

I see what happened, the 5.54 installer contains a zip file with the actual 5.54 patch, all the missing folders and images are in that. Or you could just install the portable version.

Did you try the solution suggested at the beginning of this bugs thread?

Not the best place for it IMO.   There are many types of installers that use cab\zip files, and "full 5.  54 install" implies that its a complete package (no patches needed).   Hence it would have been best to pack the patch along side the installer and readme.  txt, to avoid unnecessary hassle from confused newbies and helpful veteran alike ;)

Simply put, you need to
1.  use the setup
2.  extract update 5. 54 into the game folder
3.  extract files patch 7. 0 into their correct places.
