TLF Version 3.003 Released! And AI War II kickstarter!
« on: October 18, 2016, 09:09:49 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.com/the-last-federation-version-3-003-released/

Bugfixes and an AI War II kickstarter notice on the main menu.  The release notes cover the details, and we hope that you enjoy those fixes. :)

We also hope you'll stop by the campaign for AI War II and see if you think it's worth your time and/or money.  We are having an exceedingly hard time reaching our existing players for AI War Classic and The Last Federation -- of which we need only a tiny percent to actually back the kickstarter -- and as such, our kickstarter is stalling.

We have a variety of ways in which we're working on pulling out of the stall, but by far the best option is getting the message out to people who would directly be interested.  Hopefully that includes you if you're reading this (possibly you like TLF, but were put off by the learning curve of AI War -- which is a key thing we're addressing in the sequel), but please also spread the word to other players you know who might have missed this!

Best,
Chris Park

Trying to get an update.  I just reinstalled 3.0 (with all DLCs), and I'm not getting told there's an update.  What firewall ports have to be open for updates to be detected and downloaded?

Tried completely disabling my firewall, and the game still doesn't detect updates.  The version showing in the upper left is 3.000.

This... is super perplexing.  Can you look inside your game folder and then in LastFederation_Data and post your output.log?  There may also be error logs with recent data in them.  I'm wondering if the formatting is being mangled by Amazon somehow... or if _I_ managled it with editing it in the new version of visual studio or something.

Sure.
Here's ArcenDebugLog.txt
Here's Unity's Player.log
Those are the only log files I know to look for.

Well THAT is odd, but it explains a lot:

Code: [Select]
rcenAsyncFile 351 thread failed with exception:

I have a call in 15, but I'll see what I can dig up this evening.

Pasting that gives me:

Interesting...  If I visit http://lastfed.s3.amazonaws.com/, I get  a list of files that includes TLFUpdatesList.xml.  I guess that filename is case-sensitive.

OK, just so you know, I was able to manually download the update files, unzip them, and move the right files into place.  So the updates are applied for me.   :D
Hopefully, the fix is as easy as just renaming that xml file on S3 so it matches the all-lowercase name the game expects to find.

Okay, this should be fixed now.  I'm not sure why it suddenly went case-sensitive on Amazon S3 when previously not being so, but it appears that has happened.  Thanks for the sleuthing!

I've actually been wanting to get back into it, but I was waiting for an RCI stat bug to get fixed.

I am also trying to get an update, but am stuck on 3.002. I have both expansions installed, and I've tried on two different machines to update, shutting down both Avira antivirus and its firewall. No luck. Here is my output log. Please note that I bought this game on GOG, not Steam. Thanks.

You can try manually downloading and applying the update, as follows:

You can try that to see if it lets you update.

Those two downloads did solve the issue. I'm now showing 3.004. Thank you very much!  :) 
Do you think it will correct the problem for future updates?
