Elemental: Fallen Enchantress Beta 4 is now available for download!

Beta 4 is about your cities.  The economic system has been redone and players will find a host of new options in creating and tweaking their empire.  Decide which of your settlements you turn into military focused fortresses, research and magic focused conclaves or towns which support your empire by providing food and gold.

Choose your city enchantments carefully, you can’t have more than your cities essence.  Do you want to use Wall of Fire to protect your city from attackers, Inspiration to provide additional research, Set in Stone to double production but negate any research from that city or Sovereign’s Call to attract more people to that city?

Highlights of Beta 4:

  • New Economic System.  Upgrade your settlements into Conclaves, Towns and Fortresses each with their own improvements and options
  • Essence as a new tile yield which determines the magical aptitude of the city that is founded there
  • Upgrade your Outposts with High Towers, Wardens, Fortifications and other improvements
  • New art and animations.  Completely redone cloth map, new research and spellbook screens and a wide variety of new and improved art

Full list of changes can be found here - http://forums.elementalgame.com/429319

When installing the patch update, after installation, I get the error:

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

 

Any clues? (And I would need direction to find an application event log).

 

Downloading the larger installer instead, hoping for a better result.

I can provide a log from sxstrace.exe if it would help, but I dont seem to be able to attach files to posts, and it is quite long. I could send it to an email address, if that would help matters.

Having the same problem.  Trying a complete uninstall / reinstall to see if it works.

Mine (downloaded the upgrade) works like a charm  and installed without a hitch. First few hours of playing and I'm really impressed. All the new additions work really well.

- City building is great fun and I'm really contemplating what to build next all the time.

- Love the way essence works in combination with city enchantments.

- Flipping outposts is much better than getting them destroyed.

- I flipped a Magnar outpost by 'outculturing him'.

- AI (challenging) still does some weird stuff occasionally like sending out a lone hero to pillage in my territory (not a good idea) but overall seems pretty good. More after I've completed my first game.

Well, I've tried the update patch with my previous install, and the exe would not run, then the main download twice, both times it says it is corrupted and wont install. Trying it via stardock central next.

Same here. There it goes my planned evening, after 2 hours of download. VERY annoying.

Second time it happened, too. Last time it was because I skipped an update and the patches only work incrementally while only the last one is available (NOT the proper way to handle patches, obviously): it was the reason I uninstalled it entirely and decided to just wait for Beta 4. At least the full package will install, I thought.

No such luck. This game is really becoming a life-long, enduring test of patience and restraint.

Thanx for the heads up, LordTheRon. It does start now.

Well, it's past midnight over here. I'll just fire a game to feel the novelty...
