Stardock Closed for the Holidays

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

I liked the "hawt chick" that you made for your leader. I swear all computer guys are 13 year olds who stay up and watch scrambled porn.

 

Oh, sorry, I meant all of us male half of the species.

64-bit version will be free and released as a future update. It'll be invisible to those who already have 64-bit Windows.

Good stuff... unfortunately, this is taking the internet download speed that is prioritized to obtain ELEMENTAL.

Oh thats cool. Hadn't even realized you'd have a 64 bit version. Will 64 bit have any material differences vs. 32 bit? Larger maps is it?

Why would the 64-bit version be invisible to those that can use it?

Crap, I just noticed they added nice little icons for each Perfession, Talent, and Weakness. What size are those icons and where do they show up? I've got some work ahead of me for my Traits mod.

Quoting arstal,

Because it'll be implemented without any need for user input, presumably.

Anyone else still waiting for elemental to show up in their impulse lists? I think it's been nearly four hours since the DL's started (not entirely sure) and I know they said up to 5 hours....just curious to know who else is waiting so I know when I should start mailing off about it >.>

I haven't got it yet, but I wouldn't be playing it this evening anyway, at this point. If I haven't received it by the time I'm done with work tomorrow (and there's no solution apparent on the forums) I'll send an email to the sales team. I wouldn't recommend any other course of action, really.

Impulse can detect 32bit vs 64bit operating systems and delivery the appropriate files to you directly.  No action on your part.  Hence why it'll be "invisible" to you.

The video is nice. At least I can see what the game could be if it was working on at least one of my computers.

These videos are awesome, Elemental was on my radar but actually knowing what it's about made me that much more excited about it.

Great job guys.
