UCAWA 1.00.14 Patch Released

Recommended Posts

My fault. I forgot to upload the new .XML file that Updater needs. Try it now please.

EDIT: I deleted your post. You haven't yet downloaded the .14 patch, yet you were posting about a previous patch KNOWN to be problematic? Gimme a break.

Please reread my post. I was able to download .14 after you posted your new .XML file.

The date on my .exe's are 27/04/06 3:12PM and 3:13PM for the single player and MP .exe respectively.

I hope IGN didn't send me the incorrectly protected versions. I'd have to check with them.

And did you two actually install the April DirectX runtime or not?

Just to confirm, I have the latest DirectX runtime as well.

OK, I've uploaded a newly protected build. Change your version in the INI file to .13 and run the Updater.

Rolled back and reinstalled .14

I am still getting the same crash where it just exits to desktop shortly after displaying the 3000AD logo. No error message.

uhm, try disabling the logo with /n. And run it in a Window to see if you can catch an error message.

Ran it again as suggested. It displays the empty (black) window with the title UNIVERSAL COMBAT: A WORLD APART (Version 1.00.14 of May 1 2006) then it closes. No error or message of any sort.

Add /w1 /d5 to the shortcut and try it again. Post the contents of the debug log files.

Also, make absolutely certain that you have installed the April DX runtime. When in doubt, re-install and reboot.

I re-downloaded the directx update from your link in this thread, installed and rebooted.

I the game with the switches above (/w1 and /d5), same result, exits to desktop with no error.

There is a ucdebug.log file created but it has a 0 byte value, it's empty. First time that has happened to me...

If that log file is empty, then the video sub-system (DX) didn't even initialize. Are you sure only one .log file exists?

Well, I'm stumped. Back to the drawing board.

Positive, it's there. I even ran it a few times and it's definitely being created, but empty.

Good luck SC, let us know when you have something else for us to try.

If someone else could also test this latest patch, that would be great to confirm it's not something wrong with my PC. Also to see if they are getting a blank ucdebug.log file.

Did I not previously say to use /n to disable that logo?

And does the Updater actually RUN the patch after downloading it?
