The history of Error Correction Mod - A long time ago in a game galaxy far, far away....
Fatal programming errors had a strong influence on the weak minded:
With our combined strength, we ended this destructive code mess, and...destroyed the most bugs & errors. It was our destiny!
If we strike down a few more glitches, we shall become more de-biased and debugged than you can possibly imagine.
Strike 'em down with all of our hatred and our journey towards the hard side of the error-correction will be complete!
Only then will we be strong enough v. the black screens of death to boldly fix what no one has fixed before:
ECM 4.1 updates list?
there was a list of updates for the next ECM/multi-installer version (raiding messages, auto-build, Summary/Systems turns, Newly-built structures unpowered). I can't find it anymore. Anyone?
- shiptech.sst -> fed outposts 1/2 tech level bug fixed -> I can't find this bug in 1.0.2? What is/was this?
My new suggestions to add to the (missing) update list so far:
'% raiding' Building Output Type Fix -> fixes missing % raiding crew experience and task force size bonuses for minor races!
Economic/Military score overflow workaround -UPDATE--> Total Score on default level (power graph issues on larger maps possible!)

Intercept button fix for strike & command ships (AI can anyway)
0x479BC AND 0x479C0 change -> CE -> CA
Artillery group 'circle' default bug-fix (should not be available for this group)
0x18E38C -> 04 (Circle) to e.g. -> 0D (Hold position)
AI fast-attack 'Pakled tactic' fix vs. stations
0x77B4B change 89 D0 -> B0 01 (Strafe -> Charge)
- Income based difficulty level cheats are a serious AI vs AI bias, the higher the level, the more unbalanced are the AI empires
- ship specific weapon animations (fixing the blue? ferengi beams)
