Latest Patch

Postby cliffski » Thu Oct 02, 2008 3:54 pm

OK, here is the inevitable patch :(

This goes from version 1.0 to version 1.01 and should fix everything that has been mentioned. let me know if this is not the case. The demo and full version links are now 1.01 (as of right this second), but if you still have an older copy you can just run this patch:

http://www.positech.co.uk/kudos2/patche ... to1.01.exe

changelist:

1.01 Fixed typo when actors get fired
Prevented exploit where you could click other windows whilst at the casino.
Fixed crash bug when accepting a job offer, then reselecting the same phone message
Fixed crash bug shortly after rejecting a job offer then attempting to reselect the offer message.
Fixed incorrect data for 'cleanliness' performance criteria for medical jobs

I've just downloaded the patch for 1.02, and the patch fails to install. I'm running Windows XP.

Please help; I've just bought the game today and it keeps crashing, even though the demo worked fine.

Hi, this is because you already have the latest version. it won't patch the latest version, just the older one. Basically when I release a patch, I change all the demo and full files at the same time, so people buying the game after a patch is released don't need it.
If your game is 1.02 and still crashing, please email me details.

Fixed bug where background would go blank if you changed to another window and back whilst character was drunk.

Hey saraswati,

Depends on the exact hour! It's 1.03 so if on the main (title) screen top right it says 1.03, then you don't need the patch,
Cheers

Aah, thanks for the help, Cliff!

I patched it to 1.03, so hopefully the crashes will stop. =)

And unfortunately, the game is still crashing again, even though it's updated to 1.03. I'm at a loss here.

I've also noticed with 1.03, that the writing in the daily diary is not smooth anymore and comes on the screen in little jerks.

Hi, nothing has changed to do with performance the game should still run the same. Make sure nothing else is running in the background. if the game crashes, please email the files in the games 'debugdata' folder to cliff@positech.co.uk. If you can't find a debugdata folder, create one in the Kudos2 folder, alongside the 'data' one.

1.3 crashes 2 minutes after starting. Sooner than the other patches. I could not get a copy on the dialog in the box that popped up but it said something about debugging Kudos 2. =(

I just bought the game yesterday and I am wondering if I even need the patch? I tried to install the latest one and it says "patch failed". I am using windows vista.

Cassidie, when you run the game it tells you which version you are running in the top right hand corner. If it says 1.03 then you have the latest version.
