i just bought all three parts of the game (DW, ROTS and Legends) and installed them last night... then i found an update this morning for ROTS and installed that... i think that might be the problem, but before i do something drastic like deinstalling, etc. i thought i'd check here first.

Problem 1: even though i say to start LEGENDS, it seems not to be doing that. No indication of influence, and the only characters that show up are intel agents (no leader, no ambassador, and no indication about how often my race should generate them.)

Problem 2: Any way to turn off the long intro sequences? In other Matrix games, i could hit the escape key and skip through them, but this does not seem to be the case here.

Thanks in advance...

Installing the update for Return of the Shakturi on top of Legends is definitely the problem.

Please uninstall and reinstall in the following order:

1. Install Distant Worlds
2. Install Return of the Shakturi
3. Update Return of the Shakturi
4. Install Legends
5. Update Legends (Optional)

Left-clicking or hitting Escape should skip the intro video.

Regards,

- Erik

Thanks for the quick reply!

In the future then, should i ignore any updates to RoTS, or should we deinstall, reinstall each time for the updates??

EDIT: ESCAPE key won't skip the intro with my machine for some reason, but left click does... is there a way to modify the .EXE option tags to skip (such as in WITP)?

Hey rt,

Once you have Legends up and running you should never need to worry about updating RotS or DW again.  Even when the new RotS patch comes out, you don't want to install it, it is for people who do not have Legends. 

In other words only update the newest installment of the series you have installed (Legends in your case).
