UCAWA 1.00.20 Patch Released

Recommended Posts

Decided to merge in on common fix related to vertical lines appearing on the screen on ATI cards. This is a driver issue which is even worse on Vista. So I decided to just go ahead and merge it. The D2D version is should be up sometime next week once IGN releases it. So, if thats the version that you have, keep checking their downloads page. I'll post about it once I'm notified that they have released it.

This patch requires the August 2006 (or later) 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=1.00.15 to version=1.00.16 (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.

The Starforce (BMT Micro, Digital River) version of this patch has been pulled. Apparently the Starforce guys protected it using the UCSE project settings. A revised patch will be uploaded when I get the fixed files from them.

In the meantime, you can revert to the previous .19 build by either uninstalling and re-installing, then running the Updater to download the .19 patch or you can just edit the settings.ini file, change the .20 version to .18, save the file and run the Updater. It will then download the .19 path and apply it.

This patch (for the BMT Micro CD-ROM & Digital River download versions) has been re-issued with the correct protection settings. Just run the game updater to download and install it.

Also, it is now an all-in-one patch which no longer requires the previous (large) v1.00.07 patch. This patch will install on top of any previous version, including a new CD-ROM install.
