If you visit the Solutions and Bugfixes forum all of the coding changes are in there. If large galaxies are the last thing you remember, your in for quite a treat. I wont spoil the surprises ;)

I would hope your friends can use a mouse and keyboard!

That contains all code changes that are possible. Most are hex, some are ASM.

the main multi installer has been updated to "E" but only small changes to how it installs and only 2 options software and hades. I still suggest software for most systems.

Thank you thunder

Yea mine has always been software.

so really no real changes in the main instal that would effect new mod downloads?

i know mods install to new instal paths in the master multi folder is that what you are talking about thunder?

the other mods. like udm and balance of power have they remained unchanged since january?

the large map size is that still the same size or now bigger?

i notice a new download called error correction what is it?

also do all mods have large maps?

thank you for your help


edit

also ultimate mod 4 is that udm 4?

I suggest you start fresh and re download everything around that time all main/mods were updated for a missing joker patch data.

trying to uninstal. but the uninstall files in each folder are just icons, not the actual uninstal file. how would you say is best to uninstall?

found the uninstall path but its only uninstalling the uninstal path and not all of the files

just started to download the main multi 1.02. download speed is a bit erratic (between 200-300 KB/s) but that's still ok imo

Welcome back jaruler!
I get about 160KB/s right now - that's around what I usually get from afc.
However, I recommend to use a downloadmanager over here anyway, afc server sometimes is a bit unstable.

cheers
