Fixed SÖLDNER Demo

As noted on Planet Soldner, the multiplayer SÖLDNER: Secret Wars demo released earlier was 4F (thanks Tiscali Games). Word on how to tell the proper version from the corrupt on is: "Make sure the filename is soldnerbeta_demo.exe (Filesize: 224,141,974), this is the updated file. The old, corrupt file is called soldnerbetademo.exe." The updated version of the demo that has been confirmed as working can be found on 3D Gamers, ActionTrip, Computer Games Online, FilePlanet (registration required), Filerush (torrent), FileShack (registration required), Gamer's Hell, and Worthplaying.

...if your reading this, seems some of us are having trouble getting the server list to show. The official forums are getting hammered so its tough to see if theres a workaround. Any advice?

Figured out the server now. Small problem of having about £4000 and no way of increasing that, still no server list. It doesn't appear to be a good game away, very scrappy feeling.

I can't connect to any servers. It's just sitting there saying "requesting list....." Damn, I was really looking forward to this too.

There is a file server.bat in the default directory, I ran that and it launched a server. Then I was able to connect to it via Lan. Problem was it was still laggy, at 800x600, with 1 player In regards to actually playing, anyone know how to give money to the team (there is a team fund) I'd like to try out the higher vehicles etc. Oh, and back to the lag/slowness I'm running a p4 3.0 1gb ram, and ati 9800 pro, latest drivers etc. Like everyone says "never had problems like this before" hehe. I've turned down the settings as well, no real help. I'll try to join a public server later.

I'm all ready and pumped to play this, but I can't find out how to start / join a server. I too am stuck at the "Refreshing List..." thingy. Is it swamped or not up yet? Looks sweet though.

Teut, no one really cares that the wrong file was hosted. Shit happens and it was up what, barely over an hour before it was taken down and the right file was distributed? Who cares. So you lose an hour of downloading....that was SOOooooo hard to do you all must be so tired.

I hope this is as good as it looks....now only if I could join...

Tom, you said Soldner Demo is crashing to desktop. Would you do me a favour and email me the crahslogs (inside the installation folder, one txt file and one dmp file) and email me your configuration. Easiest is to send me your dxdiag file: simply use the run... command in the start menu and type in dxdiag. When that opens up use the tools File->Save all info menu to save a txt file, send that as well.

Thanx, this might help us tracking down your problem.

Interesting customization options, but that doesn't matter unless one can actually play the game.

It won't refresh the server list and it won't let me create a game of my own.

I got it installed and it runs ... I just don't know what you do. I can't see any way to run a server, there appears to be no servers to connect to.

The fact that no one could be bothered to test the demo before it was sent out the door is inexcusable. A lot of people wasted their time and bandwidth helping to distribute this file.

With that kind of attention to detail, it doesn't surprise me in the least to hear that the demo has shoddy performance.

After finally installing the right version, now it ctds as soon as it starts. I knew this game was gonna be crap, I'm gonna play some joint op, at least sometimes that works.

something about a "beta demo" just isn't trustworthy.

Isn't a "beta demo" just one step above "alpha leak" ?
