SI: Rectification 1.08a Update

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Ouch.  I seemed to have broken the Curse of Diabolism in 1.08 after having previously fixed it.  I’ve fixed it again and included it in 1.08a.  Also included are some fixes for the durations of some events that required a timer that were having their durations cut short by 1 turn.  Hosts in multi-player games should definitely upgrade.

You can get 1.08a here.

Instructions:

Download the .zip file and then overwrite 3 files and the GameData folder in the Program Files\Cryptic Comet\Solium Infernum folder.  Make sure you overwrite the GameData folder and its files.  You might need to delete the folder and then unzip the new one there to ensure that they are replaced.

IMPORTANT: It seems that windows 7 often creates another install location in AppData.  If you are copying over the 3 files and the GameData folder to the Program Files location but the version on the game is still not going to 1.08a  then you will need to update the files and folder in the AppData location.  The easiest way to find this is to do a search for MainIFace.cxt and note the AppData location if it is returned.

SI: Rectification 1.08 Release

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Well, I haven’t had any major bugs to fix in a while so I am going to call this released and no longer in Beta.  New purchases will get the 1.08 version now as well. There are some important fixes like an error in calculating the % chance generation of the diabolism curses.  If you are playing (especially hosting) a game of rectification you should definitely upgrade to this release version.  Also added some small fixes here and there like the secret objectives for insulting, demanding and framing all players now tell you who you still need to get to complete the objective.

You can download 1.08 here

SI: Rectification Beta 1.07e

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

This is an update that hosts and single players should apply.  It fixes a problem with Curse of Diabolism that can cause large prestige losses should a player request tribute while cursed.

You can download 1.07e Beta here

Important Note for installation:

It seems that windows 7 often creates another install location in AppData.  If you are copying over the 3 files and the GameData folder to the Program Files location but the version on the game is still not going to 1.07 Beta then you will need to update the files and folder in the AppData location.  The easiest way to find this is to do a search for MainIFace.cxt and note the AppData location if it is returned.

SI: Rectification 1.07d Beta Home Stretch

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I have made some balance changes and corrected a host of bugs based on player feedback.

The key changes:

The reduction of all the Curse of Diabolism generation rates to 3% per tribute requested by any player

Added some +1 Prestige special abilities to the relics that had only one special ability

Lowered  the resource cost for the Hell Sculpt and Summon Devourer rituals.

Lot’s of AI bugs fixed as well as some critical bugs with the new content.

The Assertion of Weakness option should no longer become active in non-Rectification games.
