So I downloaded the Gratuitous Space Battles demo. I played it. I had a lot of fun.
Then let me be honest, I didn’t have money at the time so I pirated the game. I played it, had even more fun, but felt kind of bad.
Then I got a hold of some money, so I brought the full version and the tribe expansion. I installed it and I was just giddy.
However the game crashes upon startup. I reinstalled the demo, the demo runs fine.
What’s going on here? Any way I could fix this? Or failing that get a refund of some sort?
My computer is a macbook. Intel integrated graphics. Core duo etc. I can bring up more specs on demand.
EDIT: If I uninstall tribe, same result.
EDIT: More info. If I install the 1.30 patch for softpedia then the game works: games.softpedia.com/get/Patch/Gr … atch.shtml
However 1.35 crashes for me. Pretty sure it’s the version difference that’s doing it.
EDIT: Ok. I installed GSB 1.35 (from the link BMT micro emailed me). It crashed at startup. Then I installed the 1.30 patch for softpedia. It worked. Then I installed the Tribe expansion. It worked and the Tribe ships are really pretty
Can I go off and activate my thingy from the online button now? Or will there be some sort of problem because I don’t have the latest version???
