    This is a solid, concise update to the game. I hope to play a little bit soon to experience the glory!

    I'm sorry if I will ask a stupid question, but how do I update Everspace? xD
    I got 0.13.28942 atm

    This is a Steam update, so you can either just restart Steam to force a global update check for all games, or you can do it for only Everspace.

    Wish I would have pre-ordered for steam :(
  • TwoCablesTwoCables Posts: 66Customer
    It's only a short wait. I would bet that they won't have this problem going forward.

    Think so too - there can always be some thenical problems. A little bit sad, ppl don't like GOG - I think its the way better software

    Is it normal that the challenges are resettet after the update???

    I'm not even using the software. I went with GoG so that I didn't need to depend on software just to launch the game.

    Hello everyone,
    the question still remains: If I pre-ordered through GOG (without the GOG galaxy client), how do I update the game?

    Only asking...since it's monday ;-)

    You will just go to your GoG account on the GoG site and download like you did before.

    It's still only early afternoon in Germany. Let's be patient.
  • RuneforceRuneforce Posts: 3Member
    It does not matter how you purchased it, since you are playing it through the Galaxy client, right?

    Btw. now it's late afternoon...
  • Chris SabionChris Sabion Posts: 8Customer
    No, it's just a shortcut on the desktop. Like I said, I don't use the galaxy client.

    Rockfishgames is from Germany, so am I, too. Sorry, but I'm just a little bit impatient...;-)
  • TwoCablesTwoCables Posts: 66Customer
    I'm not using the client either.

    When they update it, they will simply tell us a new version is available to download.

    Thank you guys for the updates this game is awesome. It has come a long way since the alpha. Keep up the great work!
  • Chris SabionChris Sabion Posts: 8Customer
    Still no update on GOG? Any way to transfer the game to steam? ;-)
  • gallen0gallen0 Posts: 1Member
    Tuesday and no update on GOG :(
    Should have bought it on Steam.

    They didn't say that it "will" go live, but that it "should". Delays happen. It's barely mid Tuesday morning in Germany, only a day after they guessed it should be possible to make it live on GoG. I think maybe it's too soon to be impatient.
  • Chris SabionChris Sabion Posts: 8Customer
    A statement from Andi would be welcome. Is GOG responsible for the delay? I'm so curious about the improved gamepad controls...
  • ROCKFISH_AndiROCKFISH_Andi Posts: 1,017Moderator
    About the GOG version: We uploaded to GOG on Friday (same time as Steam) and received an upload error. Unfortunately it was past their office hours, so there was noone there to help us out. Then on Monday GOG support wrote us that they had never encountered such an error and we should try again, which we did, but without success. Now we uploaded via FTP instead and they will have a look. I can't predict when the problem will get solved. I'm sorry about this, we really wanted to release both versions at the same time.
  • Chris SabionChris Sabion Posts: 8Customer
    Thank you very much for your comment on this topic. I hope the people from GOG support will solve the problem, soon.
    I waited so long for this game, one or two more days won't count, still appreciate your fine work! You all are doing a great job, especially in keeping the community informed. Thanks!
  • Chris SabionChris Sabion Posts: 8Customer
    Finally! The update on GOG is here! Thank you guys. Do I have to uninstall Everspace before downloading and installing the newer setup.exe?

    By the way, on GOG it says 0.1.4.29051...

    Any word on when this update will come to Xbox One?
  • 19841984 Posts: 2Member
    Any updates regarding the Linux version? This is the kind of game which will sell well with the Linux crowd if you give us a chance to buy it ;-)
  • ROCKFISH_AndiROCKFISH_Andi Posts: 1,017Moderator
    @chimpbone We have to go through a verification with Microsoft for each update, this can take a few days in the best case and a few weeks in the worst. I hope it wil be live soon.

    @1984 We are going to pick up work on the Linux version, soon. Sorry that we did not find the time, yet. You can imagine that we're very busy here with only 3 coders (who are also quite actively answering questions here and on the steam forum)
  • 19841984 Posts: 2Member
    Great news, best of luck, looking forward to play the game!
  • JjOoZsAeYJjOoZsAeY Posts: 2Member
