Patch for v5.14
« on: April 19, 2010, 03:44:16 PM »
IMPORTANT! This patch includes a minor database change. I didn't want to release a new database just for this one change but you will have to trigger the database update. When you enter the Game window for the first time, there will be an error popup. Ignore this and select any game. Now go to the Game menu on the main menu bar and select v5.14 Data Update. You should almost immediately see a popup stating "Update Complete". Your database is now updated and ready to continue. This won't affect any saved game.

This is a bug-fix patch that will only work on v5.10 or later. To apply the patch just unzip the Aurora514.zip.exe into the installation directory, overwriting Aurora.exe. Don't forget to follow the above instructions when you run the game for the first time.

OK, what do I need to download and install get from 4.91 to 5.14? This thread and the 5.10 thread seem to indicate that all I need to do is install 5.10 (6.6mb) and then 5.14 (4.0mb). However, I note that version 5.0 was 11.1 mb. This makes me wonder if that earlier version might be required as well.

5.1.0 and 5.1.4 should be enough.

I just checked to make sure. Yes, 5.1 has both, aurora.exe and the database, so you don´t need 5.0

Hey, I just installed the game, and attempted to apply both patches in order. It never gave me the option to update the database in my game menu and every time I start up it throws 13 errors at me before letting me through. Is this normal?

Every time I attempt to make a new game, it hits me with endless errors, forcing me to close the process with task manager.

I have tried deleting the aurora game file and reinstalling fresh, which strangely still carried over a save game I had. Help would be MUCH appreciated, thanks.

Edit: I have just re-installed everything in order. I am getting the forewarned errors from Steve about errors 3061, 3265, and then a ton of 91 errors followed by the endless spam of errors whenever I try to make a new game. I have done everything precisely as the instructions did and I live in the US where it's separated by a decimal etc etc. Once again, help would be appreciated.

CURRENT UPDATE: I have made a fresh install into a new aurora designated folder. I have successfully patched to 5.13 with no error on startup, with the first game on the menu being titled "The Space Race". I have attempted to install the 5.14 patch, but it only asks me to replace the aurora exe and NOT the mdb or whatever file that it asked me to replace on the 510 patch. Upon replacing the exe, I see it is still on v5.13 but thankfully with no errors still. Is this right? Or am I missing something?

The database is only replaced in major patches, i.e. from 5.0 to 5.1. Those are also the patches, you´ll loose any saved games.
The small patches, i.e. from 5.1.3 to 5.1.4 only replaces the exe.

Start the game, select "Game". There should be a new option "v. 5.1.4 data update" select this. Now you wil run a proper 5.1.4
If this option does not exist, try overwriting the aurora exe with the one from the 5.1.4 patch again.

At start up I am getting:

Error 3265 generated by DAO.fields
Item not found in this collection

I had copied in 5.10 and 5.14.

It was working before this set up updates.

A week or two. I am still thinking about the whole Narrowband sensor question - particularly now someone has pointed out the downside for cloaked ships.

Should be. I am going away this week though as the UK Poker Tour is in Luton, near London and I have booked a hotel down there. I leave on Tuesday and should be back on Sunday night.
