Re: Game blocks steam overlay to take screenshots

Hello. Steam has a nice function to take screenshots from any game. Unfortunately it doesn't work for dw2. Steam overlay is working itself but something blocks screenshoting. Change of the hotkey in steam overlay doesn't help. Please, fix it. Or at least add the function to take screenshots in game...

Re: 1.03.7 - 1.03.9 Patch - Causing PC to reboot

It has been taken very seriously. However, we cannot reproduce it. We are working on an engine upgrade in order to hopefully address these remaining lower level issues. In the meantime we are making gameplay fixes and improvements so that progress can continue for those who are able to play without ...

On this Memorial Day

I am in my thoughts today with those who gave everything so that the rest of us would have a chance to live in the liberty and freedom which their sacrifice made possible, from the first days of the American Revolutionary War to the present day. May they always be remembered and may their families a...

Re: DW2 Beta Update - 1.0.4.8 (How to Access and Change List)

Re: Inaccurate Ship Cost/Maintenance values.

Is it possible to get maintenance costs of 0 (zero)? In a current game (1.0.4.7) playing as Teeken, anything I design comes up with a maintenance costs of zero when I begin upgrading things. Even colony ships. Just thought it was strange. Yes, that's a bug in 1.0.4.7 which we plan to fix in 1.0.4.8...

Re: Selecting Ships to add to fleet 1.0.4.7: latest beta (more like alpha)

Why when I select all ships on the map and I try to creat a new fleet with them. or add them to a new fleet, the freighters and constructors and the explorers are added too, from my knowledge we shouldn't be able to control the private sector ships. How exactly are you selecting them before you cre...

Re: DW2 Beta Update - 1.0.4.7 (How to Access and Change List)

Updated the original post to reflect the 1.0.4.7 beta update, which has just been released.

We recommend starting a new game with 1.0.4.7 for best results.

We expect the beta updates to become a big new official update next Tuesday.

Colony ship can arrive with anything between empty and full load of colonists. Since you don't see how much colonists are loaded when you click Send , you have...

Re: DW2 Beta Update - 1.0.4.6 (How to Access and Change List)

With the latest beta 1.0.4.6, the game is broken, my defence fleet will guard the planets but when the planets are attacked my fleets don't do anything, they just watch me planets getting taken over by the enemies. This patch made the game unplayable. Also, sometimes the troops on planets become st...

Re: 1.0.4.6 Manual Beta Update: Try at your own risk

It should be obvious, that I can and have played [1.0.4.6] - just taking a break ;) And since I had no crash, it doesn't seem to be necessary. Which brings me back to my original question, what are you trying to accomplish here? Why do you want to lock a Windows system driver? As far as I know, we'...

That would be called a false positive by an overly aggressive anti-virus software. Please let it know that DW2 is safe and should be excluded from its concerns.

Re: 1.0.4.6 Manual Beta Update: Try at your own risk

They really don't need more than 100 caslon for emergencies to begin with. Or any, honestly. Does anyone build them so they don't entirely rely on solar power? If you could remove the reactors and fuel storage, you'd have more room for other, more useful stuff, but I don't expect a change on that l...
