Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

If I end turn immediatly after saving I get a blank grey line for about 10 - 15 seconds before it start executing orders. Do you want a log for a save that works properly? I should point out that I'm playing on a 500 star young galaxy with high planet density and very many star lanes. That is probab...

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

OK, so I loaded a game made some commands, saved it and exited and the save didn't load. So I loaded the same game, made the same commands, saved it, waited a few minutes and then exited and it loads.

I wish I'd figured that out earlier, it would have saved a lot of wasted hours.

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

The first save was 20MB I've resent the second save with the logs. It seems to have taken.

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

I've been thinking. While emailing the save games to info I noticed that the second save is much smaller than the first. Is it possible that I'm leaving the game before it has finished saving which stops the save partway through? The fact that they are all second saves could be a coincidence. The Em...

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

The error happens only when attempting to load a second save.

I'll do some more experiments.

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

This is me attempting to load a second save in 3.9. And yes I had changed some orders from the first save - otherwise there would be no point in saving. I had to delete config.xml to get the game running in the first place. As for closing, I just resign and then exit. should I send someone the saved...

Re: 3.9 doesn't support widescreen

As for the saving problem, it wasn't just that time. I figured it out on my first 500 map and tested it a few times, since then it has occured on two other maps. It might be a 500 star thing. I even tried loading a first save and saving it again and that didn't work. I'll start a new map in 3.9 and ...

3.9 doesn't support widescreen

I've got a 1680 x 1050 60hz LCD monitor, in 3.8 I was able to play the game with the full resolution. Now that I've upgraded all I get is an error message. On the supplied resolutions the planets are oval rather than round and look very odd. I tried a resolution of 1280 x 800 - the same ratio as ful...

Re: My Thoughts

Can you get to Singularity of Transcendence in 100 turns:)

Does version 3.0 mean anything? It is the only number I can find.

Anyway, after restarting my computer and changing buildings.txt it is down to a little over two minutes to change a focus, I can live with that. Thank you.

Re: My Thoughts

Turn 420 at the moment.

My complaint wasn't that it took so long but that it did it automatically when a focus was changed. Playing it the way I do means long waitings between turns, and I accept that.
