Thanks :)

If you wish to donate, you could send to my PayPal at stevewalmsley4077 @ gmail. com

I sent a bit of cash your way, should be enough for a few nice wines and hopefully can help encourage you to add back the old grey/white theme soon so we don't have to play with this horrible yellow text on blue background forever.   ::)

Thanks - greatly appreciated and I will spend it wisely on quality alcohol :)

Don't post much but for such a noble cause I am happy to pitch in! Just wanted to say thanks for letting us enjoy your hobby with you, even with the associated difficulties it causes you (entitled people, disrespectful people. . . well, people in general I guess!  :) )

The speed at which you tackle things is amazing and I am looking forward to seeing how you approach the suggestions thread in the future.  Good luck!

I fear Steve will feel burned by his pet project at some point, given how much he works on it.  If you need to take a break Steve, then don't hesitate, we will wait (albeit impatiently, but we will wait).

Its fine.  This is what I do for fun, so I not going to burn out.  I've been putting in a lot of hours for six months, although by now I expected to be spending time in the motorhome :).  I just want to get through the bugs so I can move to new features.  One major thing is expanding the variety of NPRs for example and adding extra spoiler races.  I don't want to do that without a stable version

All the bug reports have helped a lot with that goal, so thanks to everyone.  The latest version still has some bugs but the number and severity seem to be dropping off.  If that continues, the releases will start to come further apart as I managed to do some play-testing of my own.

So now Steve's real motivation for making this so interesting becomes clear.  He has found a great way of finding the most dedicated and motivated crew of beta testers! ;D

I know I'm no tech whiz, but I am having issues installing the 1. 8 patch.
First, install the 151Full package.
Second, unpack the Aurora180.rar.  It contains two files: Aurora.exe and AuroraDB.db.  These replace the files with the same name from the 151 package.

Overwrite could cause issues with the database. ais always better to cancel the previous .exe and database prior copying the newcones into the directory.

Why could an overwrite cause issues?

I'm not sure if you're the same person, but I've read this so many times now.

What exactly do you mean when you say "cancel the previous files"? There's no process running that could get canceled, unless you run Aurora during the update, then obviously it won't work.  You can't "cancel" a file.

Also, replacing the existing files with new ones can't cause any issues since the files are, well, replaced.  Unless the new files are already corrupted or get corrupted during the transfer, but this could also happen if there was nothing to overwrite.

It is like installing a patch through a setup, generally, you do not delete the file or files before, since the overwriting is done automatically.
So I don't see a problem either.

In Discord someone had some errors coming after he overwrote the files and it was fixed after he deleted the files instead.   I have followed Steve's instructions to the letter and no problems yet.

Indeed, this is what Steve recommends, for my part, I overwrite the files and for the "moment" me either I have no problem.
But, if this manipulation is recommended, indeed, it is that there is, perhaps reason for that.

I find it more likely that the user reporting this was misunderstanding/misclicking his "do you really want to overwrite" dialogue than Aurora files magically behaving different from other files. I would even say hard drive errors are more likely, but even that should not be able to consistently reproduce problems only when overwriting.

Still, I do follow the recommendations from Steve. I feel like that if I am to submit a bug report I need to have an install that is 100% according to his instructions.
