Sorry if this is a rant…hopefully not too much of one! Maybe somebody can help…hope so!
I have been deciding to buy Gal Civ 2 for a while now, after playing the demo, I decided to go ahead and buy it, never played a turn based game before, so looking forward to it. I noticed that the Ultimate edition was due out in a few days, so I waited and bought that – yay
I installed the game, no problems and then decided to grab the new 2.0 update as it adds lots to the game etc….the community seems very excited about it.
I want the best experience I can with my nice new shiny ultimate edition. I logged onto impulse and tried to update the game, I have Sins of Solar Empire and have updated it easily. The game was not listed under My Games, so figured I needed to register it first under impulse. So I typed my serial key in and selected game category, then clicked to choose game…..the list was blank?
After hours of re-installing impulse, the game, restarting computer etc etc…I have finally found out that the Ultimate edition can not be patched! It is not listed under supported games under the impulse game list.
I know people rant about impulse, but I don’t mind it and support from the community and the people who make Gal Civ and Sins is fantastic. Until now!
So that’s it then…nothing I can do, will have to stick with an out of date, unsupported version of a game and will have to spend money on Gal Civ 2 normal edition and buy all the expansions separately.
To be honest I doubt I will rush out and do this after they took my money for an unsupported game…it SHOULD be listed on the box! I wont play with an out to date version….anyhow 2.0 adds a lot!
I will find something else to take up my spare time. This may be a one of case….but I feel seriously let down!!!!!
