UCAWA 1.00.13 Patch Released

Recommended Posts

This patch requires the February 2006 DirectX runtime

Use the game Updater to download and apply the patch.

The online VCF has also been updated.

NOTES:

If you use the game's Updater, the process will go like this:

  1. If you have any version lower than 1.00.07, it will download the 1.00.07 update first. After applying this, you need to run Updater again so that it can download the incremental update to the latest version. You will have to run the Update multiple times to get all the updates to the latest version.
  2. If you already have 1.00.07 or higher installed, it will download only the incremental update to the latest version.

If you don't want to use the Updater, then you have to check one of the public mirrors for a link to the full patch; which you should then copy into the game's folder and execute from there.

Though this latest patch contains a new SETTINGS.INI file, if the Updater downloads the patch but it doesn't run or you discover that it didn't patch, you may need to edit the SETTINGS.INI file in Notepad and make the following changes :

  1. version=1.00.13 to version=1.00.12 (or change this to whatever the previous version was)
  2. location=. to location=%updater%

Then save the file and run the Updater again.

WARNING: DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE PUBLIC PATCHES AVAILABLE ON DOWNLOAD MIRRORS IF YOU HAVE THE DOWNLOAD (e.g. DIRECT2DRIVE) VERSION OF THE GAME!! USE THE UPDATER INSTEAD. ONCE THE PUBLISHERS MAKE THEIR VERSIONS OF THE PATCH AVAILABLE, THE UPDATER WILL DOWNLOAD THEM. THE TIMETABLE FOR THOSE PATCH RELEASES IS UP TO THE PUBLISHER DUE TO HOW THEIR PROTECTION SYSTEM WORKS.

If you are having a floating point not loaded error message, read this thread

EDIT: The recently released 1.00.13.01 update seems to have corrected this. So even if you are not experiencing this issue, you still need to update to this recent version.

I have just been notified that the patch server (which also hosts the mp backend) has crashed again since 11:18AM EST. The Hypernia folks are looking into it. Until its back up, you won't be able to download the latest patch or authenticate an mp client or server.

So if Updater can't connect to the server, thats the problem. But keep trying because the server should be up again soon.

The Direct2Drive version of the patch is now online via the in game Updater or via the Direct2Drive patch download page.

Also, the mirrors are going to be replacing their previous patch files to the latest version. So, if the patch server is down, you can grab this patch from one of the other servers. Just remember that the in-game version is 1.00.13.01 even though the mirrors will still the patch as 1.00.13.

Can't update what? The patch server is working just fine. Besides, there are other places to obtain patches from. So what exactly is your problem?
