Aurora 4.91 Installation

http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=1

Full Install for v4.91 (65MB)

Important! Make sure you read these instructions carefully and follow them exactly. If you don't follow them you will end up with a series of errors, usually 3061 then 3265 then a series of 91s. If that happens, uninstall and re-install and follow the instructions carefully.

1) Download AuroraInstall and unzip it. You will have four files called Aurora.CAB, Setup.exe, Setup.LST and AuroraUpdate491.zip
2) Run Setup.exe. This will run a standard Microsoft install program, installing to the default C:\Program Files\Aurora directory. If you are asked about overwriting any existing files with older files, make sure you keep the existing files
3) Unzip AuroraUpdate491.zip into the same directory (usually C:\Program Files\Aurora but check to make sure!) and answer yes to overwriting Aurora.exe and Stevefire.mdb.

NB: If you live in a country where the decimal separator is a comma, please change your regional settings to either UK or US (where the decimal separator is a period) when playing Aurora. If you don't change this, you will get a LOT of errors.

NB2: If you are trying to play and all you get is:

"Error 3061 was generated by DAO Database
Too few Parameters. Expected 1"

Followed by:
"Error 3265 reported by DAO.Fields
Item not found in this collection"

Followed by a series of error 91s.

Either you didn't follow the installation instructions or you didn't change the decimal separator. If you have been playing for a while with no problems and this error sequence appears then it may be something else and you can report it in the bugs thread.

Weird - I did't post that :)

A pile of old release threads got dragged back from the dead somehow. Weirdly the one for 5.50 is now posted by Erik.

Hello,
I'm new here, I'm trying to download the game, but I get a 404 error.  Is the upload down, or it isn't from here where I should be downloading it from?

This is the old version of the game that is no longer in development... you should head over to here and get the latest version...
