****PLEASE READ THIS FIRST*******
This update (1.02) is compatible with all previous saves
MULTI PLAYER GAMES (PBEM) IMPORTANT – IMPORTANT
THE HOST MUST UPDATE. PLAYERS SHOULD UPDATE as well but the game can function if only the host updates.
Note: You may need to unzip/extract the files to a place like you desk top and then copy then to the install location Program Files\Cryptic Comet\Solium Infernum
All players send their turns into the host. The host UPDATES and THEN processes the turn. The host sends the Main.sav file to the players. The players update their versions and then load the Main.sav files sent by the host.
The version number is visible in the bottom left of the Main Menu screen. It should read 1.02 after update
The update is a self extracting .exe that will overwrite three files in the default location Program Files\Cryptic Comet\Solium Infernum
Make sure the the default target destination of the extractor is the correct location. You may need to select this manually.
You can grab the update here Solium Infernum Update 1.02
