Sword of the stars 2

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Anyone else bummed out by the poor release by kerberos on the release of this title. It got pushed back for more beta testing(which isn't necessarily a bad thing), then they sent the wrong version to Steam to upload (a beta instaed of gold).

Now I am just waiting for the new "patch" to update to the actual game.

The beta looks incredible though.

I've been waiting for this game since SotS I. I was going to make a thread soon

Anyways, they accidentally uploaded the beta version, and are uploading the release version right now. Anyways, the game is incredible, even in this state. The graphics alone are better than any other RTS game right now.

Also their forums have been down for quite a long time now, due to their servers failing to meet the sudden demand.

Yeah same here...this has been the game I've been looking forward to the most this year.

I am just hoping this bit about them giving Steam the wrong version is true and this will be fixed soon. It is just that if all they had to do was upload about 5GB to Steam I'd think it would be done by now.

It's true, it has been confirmed by multiple developers, their twitter, and one developer in a thread I made.

It was simply an human error, they have been working for 50 hours straight, no sleep.

There are links all over the place to their twitter page saying it is true. They gave steam the wrong version, and it has been uploading. I refresh the paradox forum every 5-10 mins hoping to see that the patch is loading. Oh well, I think I will just take a break, go to the gym, and come back to a hopefully retail SOTS2, and get to it.

I got the beta to work for a little bit, then went to build a dreadnaught, and it crashed on me. I put my sad face on, and am just waiting now.

Edit: On a side note, it is nice to see some fellow OCNer's that were in anticipation also. I play SOTS all the time, and couldn't sleep last night waiting for this release.

It's one of the most epic things in the history of gaming. I had some fun already just gathering all the starting cruisers in the smallest map, and attacking the enemy homeworld. Damn, those graphics and sound effects are good. I especially like the new look small mount lasers.

I slept the night well, but the entire night I dreamed about spaceships and such. Today at school, spaceships, spaceships everywhere

EDIT: Here's their twitter too: http://twitter.com/#!/SwordoftheStars

hmmm so that is why the ships have camels for engines; 50 hours no sleep. Though I think that is fair since that is how long I am going to be a awake playing it once I can. Last I checked I had about 500 hours into the first game...and i've played it much more since then.

I hope it get done soon though...if it isn't in by end of business today for Steam it might not be available til Monday

I am stoked. Going to open a bottle of scotch, and hopefully stay up all night killing things, SOTS style.

Just woke up again, only got 4 hours of sleep max. Their upload is still not done yet, they have to test it too apparently :/
