June 6, 2003: The Official BETA (final to follow) Quicksilver/Atari code release patch for Master of Orion 3.
This patch is incompatible with the previous data patch (see the enclosed
read me for full installation instructions). The installation validator
will be updated, possbily by next week, in order to accomodate the patch.
Some items included in this patch:
- New History screen
- Rewritten/expanded help text
- Improved alt-tab behavior
- Improved enemy AI behavior
- UI - improved navigation and increased economic information
- Compressed transmission of save games in multi-player
For a full list of fixes/changes read the patch_readme.txt file in the
Old saved games and most likely all existing mods will be 'broken' by this
patch, and will not work.
To install the patch: Download and unzip the file. In the directory with the unzipped files, run the "Install Moo3 Patch.exe" to install the patch. It will move the files to their appropriate location and update the registry.
**Please note that the MAC VERSION will be available shortly.
For technical support regarding the Windows patch, please visit the Atari support page.
This patch is a free upgrade for purchasers of Master of Orion 3. Please feel free to redistribute this version to other owners of original copies. You are permitted to place unaltered copies of this patch on third-party Web sites ('mirrors') as long as such sites include this notice.
This installer will overwrite the executable and various data files, so users of third-party mods will want to back up their files before installing the patch. This version supersedes the previously released 'MOO3 Data Patch', which is no longer available.
