How can I update the game to the latest version 1.02? Desura's version is 1.01.

Sorry for the missed version here. Version 1.02a is now available as a download and the in-client version is waiting for staff approval.

I just came to say: Special props for you for including a resolution that allows maximum size windowed mode. You obviously know the issue for yourselfes, since it fits perfectly without vanishing behind the windows taskbar. :) I wish more games had this option.

Got a broken save here. The industry budget has no 'spare' value and, as a result, I can't allocate the budget, only reduce it. This means that I can't continue. The bug appeared to occur from using the left mouse button held on budget values (e.g. Research) and dragging left until the value went to 0. At around 3 remaining, the 'sliding' of the number became very unresponsive. But I'm not 100% certain that is the cause of the bug.

Can you mail me the broken save at info@snipefish.de please? I'd like to take a look at what exactly went wrong there.

Bought :). A solid campaign mode with solid strategic and (somewhat limited) tactical frameworks. An AI opponent that plays by rules, that the player can affect (Like, for example, in the game "XCOM: Apocalypse"). Good stuff.

Not on a conscious level at least. I've read the first few, but that's been quite a few years ago.

Want to see Solar War on Steam? We're at 98% votes on Greenlight, so go vote and help us with that final stretch: T.co Nov 27 2014, 5:40am
@SimoRoth @maia Is that the Caddyshack game mode? Nov 9 2014, 6:29pm
@AsaTJ funny thing is, it took me about that many hours Oct 3 2014, 5:49pm
I just released Solar War update 1.03 at T.co - Most importantly, armor resistance got an overdue fix. Aug 28 2014, 2:26pm
@bgreman Yes, I plan to do that if and when it's greenlit. The game is at "82% to the top 100" right now, so it might take a while. Aug 22 2014, 3:30pm
Spent 2 hours hunting down a weird performance problem. Problem went away when I rebooted. I hate graphics drivers sometimes. Aug 9 2014, 11:37am
Minecraft has the same issue, looks like the Nvidia driver doesn't automatically recognize Java based games. Aug 8 2014, 2:04pm
From my recent support mails, this happens a lot with Nvidia dual GPU setups. Aug 8 2014, 2:04pm
Please excuse the sound! We forgot about it until we were out of time. :-) Apr 13 2014, 2:29pm
