Is there a process for getting the 1.04 to work? Mine's all no worky.

You download the 1.03 full version and unarchive it. You download my update and unarchive that. You cut/copy the files from my update and paste them in the 1.03 version folder and overwrite the files in there. Move the whole mod to your rebellion 1.04 mods folder. Start your game. Go to options > Mods (I assume the menu is still the same). Select Distant Stars, click enable, and you should see some checksum number pop up. It would be helpful if those that have it working would post their checksums so I have a number to tell people that they should be seeing. Then click apply and after a short pause DS should be running. Try it a few times, I hear rebellion likes to crash more then asian drivers. Also redownload both the mod and my update if things just refuse to work, bad downloads happen... Often. Especially when you deal with the sheer volume of files in the archive that is as large as it is. A few bad bits of data in the download process won't affect you very much when you're downloading a 100 Meg video, but in this case, it can really screw you out of a couple hundred files. So grabbing two or three copies (Ryat had to download it 18 times once I believe) just to get a working set is what we like to call, normal and expected.
If that doesn't work, then you need to be more specific with your problem. Run the dev.exe and try to play the mod with that and tell me what errors you see.

Remember fans of DS, I do my best to update this mod for you all and I don't even have Rebellion! (Don't offer to buy me a copy, I won't accept it, money isn't the issue, Steam is and to a much smaller degree Stardock is, don't ask about that either. I've said my piece, voted with my wallet, and that's it. Done.) Assholes who call me selfish for not helping as much as I used to, and pricks like Mike_Snyder who feel it's easier to blast everyone rather then finishing 2nd grade and learning how to read really just don't deserve our help, and if anyone would like to spam their accounts with the same kind of hate and vitriol explaining to them how idiotic they are and how their dumb assery will not be tolerated, please, be my guest, you can even tell them and any forum mod who questions you that I gave you full permission on my behalf to ruthlessly torment them for as long as you feel like since I'm a busy guy and love to do just that, but can't be here all of the time to police the masses. I suggest using the email option since the private message feature of these forums only holds 100 messages. Little tip for you all. ;] For everyone else who is actually civilized about these things, just saying it doesn't work, doesn't help us at all. We need details. Often times when someone says nothing happens it's because there's one too many folder depth levels and they're getting a zero checksum, or they've got a really hinky checksum number and neglect to state that, which means nothing we say will work because the files they have are all completely messed up.
So in conclusion... Like the saying goes, help me help you. Don't be an idiot here on this thread because I eat Idiot-O's for breakfast and playing with torches and fire is in fact in my job description so I can burn you hotter, harder, and more severely then Satan himself with all of the fires of Hell behind him... And that's when I'm just having fun. Okay? Great! Now you all just go on and have yourselves a fine and wonderful day. I need to go read my daughter's facebook now so I know which boys I'm going to have to kill and bury this weekend. Ciao.
