UC: A World Apart Re-Patched

This Battlecruiser Online Forum Thread has details on the re-issue of the recent version 1.00.07 patch (story) for Universal Combat: A World Apart, though the version number has not been incremented. The update addresses a performance issue with the Starforce copy protection that has popped up since the version 1.00.04 update. The thread outlines how to get the auto-updater to re-update the game.

Now if Derek could just get Valve to make this "game" available on Steam and EA to distribute the game at retail, he'd have himself a real winner.

I'd have thought Starforce wasn't needed for this. Isn't his name on the box good enough copy protection?

Rofl. Derek has starforce in his game? Wow. He probably thinks the reason the game hasn't been cracked/emulated is because he has starforce and it's getting him sales.

The real reason is no pirate wants to crack or emulate it.

By the way good job using starforce that likes to fuck things up for your game. As if playing Derek's game wasn't painful enough, now people have to suffer through starforce issues.

But in lighter news, I did a little research and found a site that might hold the answers to the lineage of one Supreme Commander we all know and love.

It seems that the Kevin tribe may be from Saturn! Could Derek Smart be anything but related to Riley Martin? See for yourself!

Personally, I think not.

If I had to guess I would say it was probably a publishers decision, and besides it looks to me like they were fixing a problem created by starforce. Whatever else you might say about Derek Smart, I doubt that many other games manufacturers would bother to issue a starforce related fix. All in all it has confirmed my opinions of starforce, I will never buy a game that uses it or allow it on to my system :-)

Oh man there are some real gems in the tech support forum.

Yeah, this is just silly. Besides, wtf is slow menu response anyway? And since you're the only one getting it, you're on your own.

and

Nothing to do with the game. You're on your own.

Apart from the fact that you have an onboard sound card, there is already a thread about sound card performance tweaking.

This thread will be deleted and you will most likely be banned if you pull this stunt again. You know the rules: NO EXCEPTIONS.


and

What do you think?

You should be tied to the back of shuttle and dragged across a planet for asking me such a stupid question.


and

You're right that its not tech support related. Had you put this thread there, it would have been deleted and you WOULD have been banned for obviou

More entertaining than reading the Sunday comics.

Okay, so he is abrasive. I know better than to ask for tech help myself. Heck, I can figure most of my problems out myself anyway.

Why does this game need StarForce protection?

No one in their right mind would even take it for free let alone steal it

Even more Derek Smart Taco Support

I guess he is the first human being on the planet to make a 100% stable video game! Check it out!

========================================

The next person to post a tech support issue in this thread - or post anywhere on this board without a profile sig, will be perma-banned. No exceptions.

There is a tech support forum.

There is a forum - containing an email address - for CD-Key registration issues.

The game is 100% stable and we have NO CTDs to speak off. If your system does not meet with the requirements for the game - or you're running on a borderline system or have been screwing around with the Config options without paying attention to the warnings, you only have yourself to blame.

WOW. He really is so arrogant to believe that he made a "100% stable" game. I'm amazed there are people who still buy his games.

A team of the best programmers in the world couldn't make a 100% stable game, much less Derek Smart.

I wonder how he'd feel if he took his expensive new car to the dealership and got that kind of treatment by the service department?

With all due respect, Prez, what the fuck is that supposed to mean, exactly??

What, then, should one do if one requires tech help for one's purchase?

I mean, the tech-support forum must be there for a reason, but to hear you tell it, the people who post there get their just-desserts from SupremeTaco because they should know better than to ask for support????

That's just pure crazy talk.

Goddammit Prez, stop being such a fucking apologist for this psycho. You're so submissive it makes me want to cry.

As for the people getting slammed on his boards, well, i have no sympathy for them. They bought a Derek Smart game, they get the Derek Smart Gold Package to go with it -- now with all new degrading and arrogant insults!

You know, one day, Derek will be standing out on his back porch, slobbering and cursing the sun, and some disgruntled player will blow his brains out with a sniper rifle. But unlike Martin Luther King, nobody will cry. In fact, you might even see a couple celebrations...

I was in stitches last week when they prank called Riley in those stupid alien voices on Stern.
