Re: Download The Demo/ Full Non-Steam Version Here (v0.95.12))

How hard would it be to provide updated binaries to use with the old (95.12) game data? That way you could provide a ocasional torrent update with new game data, but more frequent bugfix updates (consisting of just the binaries) so we don't have to suffer with old bugs unfixed. Currently I am experi...

Re: Dead Key?

Good News: I was able to activate the game and play over the weekend. Bad News: I was able to do this despite a bug in the activation system. It seems that whatever generates the .reg file will strip leading zeros from the activation code. I got super lucky and noticed that the all-zeros placeholder...

Re: Dead Key?

Figured it was something like that when I saw the DB name. Hopefully I can stop bothering you soon :P

Also: I love the new forum. The old one really lagged and looked kinda ugly, this one is much nicer.

EDIT: I now have a new .reg file, wish me luck!

Re: Dead Key?

Being a programer myself I understand completely... "If you didn't test it it doesn't work", I have been bitten by that little saying many, many times, I think every programmer has :) Also: It still doesn't work, I get the following error: Database Error SELECT * FROM kenshi_keys WHERE key...

Re: Dead Key?

So, on friday I entered my key and what I assume is a machine ID/hash into your activation system and got a .reg file back. So far so good. I got it home and added the .reg file to my registry, then started the game. This resulted in it asking my to activate, the only difference being that it alread...

Re: Dead Key?

Thank you! While I am very glad that there is a way to continue to play the game, I must say I am disappointed that the DRM seems to be getting more and more intrusive as time goes by... Couldn't you do something similar to what the Factorio guys do? There you log into their website and download a D...

Dead Key?

When I bought the game I received an email with the following: Keep your key code, it has unlimited activations forever, even after the game is finished. I won't have no evil DRM system on my ship! No sir! But after spending forever downloading the latest non-steam torrent I find that my key code wi...

Re: Download The Non-Steam Version Here

When do non-Steam users get the latest stable version?

It really annoys me that I paid money for this game, but I can't play it because the developers got it on Steam and promptly forgot they had other users.

Re: Weird startup issue (non-Steam)

Once I get into the game the text is properly english, it's just that one (annoying) message box at startup. Would it be related to me not having internet on the PC that I use for gaming? About not updating: I didn't mean an auto-updater, I mean a downloadable package with the latest version (the on...

Weird startup issue (non-Steam)

So, I downloaded the non-Steam version from the official torrent, then activated with my old key (new computer, so I had to activate again). Now every time I start the game it pops up a dialog with some German text (something about "software passport" I think). The game seems to run fine, ...
