Thats the problem: Desura has not admitted defeat. The software still patches and runs, and advertises stuff they are still selling.

It would be clear cut if the site just went up in flames - but it didnt, it just kind of rolled over and stopped denying that it is dying. By not answering (not deleting - deleting is rude and helps even less) posts on its forum that they cant operate properly anymore they are doing just that.

If 1.0 doesnt go live, I will prepare some semi official statement regarding Desura. If RoboB0b agrees with it, he can affix it on the website or remove/annotate the link to Desura. Or maybe he writes one himself - might happen as well. Anyhow, I will do whatever I can to clear this up.

A quick update on this: RoboB0b wrote me back (yay on that), and was a bit confused that people still use Desura, because he was under the impression that its dead.

I tried to research it (I wasnt a Desura user for long, I have bought Project Zomboid over it, but now play it (played it... not terribly fond of the game) on Steam) and all I got was the year old clarification from Lisa Morrison that Desura is not going down, and actually paying out developers. And then I read the forum, where every other post is "Desura is bankrupt, its not going to be able to update anything anymore".

For example this post http://www.desura.com/forum/thread/gnomoria-0918

So, I guess its really dead. If the submission is still possible, you will see a new version soon. If not, its really dead and confirmed to be so. Not happy about this either, but I cant do anthing about this.

Pretty much so. I wasnt aware of the situation, and I cannot promise a quicker reaction now that I am.

I mean how could I - the Red Telephone seems to be broken.

No thats not what I said. It just means that I have no means to get information quicker to the dev than you do by posting here - so I am not going to try. I also wont comment each bug report in an attempt to make it look like "someone official" took care of it, because that would be intentionally dishonest.

I dont really want to disapoint you, but board moderation has little to nothing to do with bug tracking. I am moderator (at the moment the only active one) to moderate the forums: quell arguments that stop being productive, move stuff around, help people oranize/delete their misposts, remove spam and react to reported posts.

Shuffling through the bugs and trying to overview what needs fixing (optimally in which order) is too much work to assign it to a voluntary position.

Making the claim that the problem is Desura's without even checking to see if your information is correct is one of the several definitions of LYING.

If you got an idea how I could check that RoboB0b submitted the files without being either a Desura employee or RoboB0b himself - please tell me.

I have not claimed that it was Desura's fault. I just said that if you have a problem with their service, you should take it to them. Which only does help if RoboBob has submitted the version - I'll grant you that. But as I wrote before, I did ask RoboB0b on the status - just have not yet received any reply (afterall, its just been a few hours. No instant gratification, sorry).

I also checked Desura. If you bought it there, there is aparently a Steam key included. So - you could technically play the game on Steam right now. I gather that you do not want to do that - I just want to point it out that its not the end of the world if you have to wait a few days until we get this sorted.

Please stop lying. Desura has plainly stated time and time again no updates have been submitted.

I didnt tell a single lie in my post. I never was a Desura customer however, so I really cannot tell you if what I heard from other users is really true - but from what I gather, Desura is really quite bad with updates, and many on this board gave it up to go through them. So I kind of doubted them from what I read through the years, which might be unfair of me.

As a moderator, maybe you should stop running interference and tell Robobob to do his job. If he can't handle his job, then he should hire someone who can or close up shop. Failure to provide agreed upon products or services is a crime in every country.

I am not running interference. In fact, I will inquire RoboB0b about this. More I cannot do. I wont buy the game from desura just to check if they really are in the wrong or not.

Give me some time and again, tone down the swearing. Seriously.

I am pretty sure its in the newgamesettings.xml - you will have to make a tiny mod that just has this changed starting options in it.

For example, adding another entry

  <Settler>
    <Offset>-1 -1</Offset>
    <RaceID>Gnome</RaceID>
    <Profession>Miner</Profession>
    <HeldItem>
      <Item>
        <ItemID>Pickaxe</ItemID>
      </Item>
      <MaterialID>Copper</MaterialID>
    </HeldItem>
  </Settler>

Will give you another miner, complete with copper pickaxe to go. Do it twice, and you should get 2 additional miners. Mind, you will have to actually choose your mod at game start for this to work.

It also depends heavily on the seed and x/y correction values you use. If you shift the land WAY into bizzaro world, strange things happen. Not as strange as solid walls of strawberry or something, but very weird in other ways. Some people have done that to get an extra challenge or interesting maps (like huge block like plateaus and such).

Its very unlikely that you are missing a specific stone type upon creation when using a large+ map. Not so sure about small and tiny, because they use the same algorythm to spread it out but just show a smaller window (that means if marble would be 50 blocks off center on some layers, it wouldnt show because tiny doesnt encompass those blocks).

But the maps are procedurally generated with no guarantee of stuff being present.

You can find the crashlog in > Documents > My Games > Gnomoria > gnomoria.log (at least on windows)

I can hardly read the log, but it points into the general direction of the crahing bug. RoboB0b can sometimes detect errors with the log and the save file.

Ok, I must have done something very, very wrong, or just something very sloppy Copy&Pasting/Replacing. I did it all AGAIN (one skill at a time), and now it works.

Now that I dumbed the game down, I can build it up again. Or something. Its a step :)

It is now Febuary 25th and you fucking morons have still not updated Desura to 09.18, let alone the release version. But, of course I'm the idiot for purchasing on Desura when that was the one of only 2 or three options at the time. So, I will take it as you do not give a flying fuck about your customers, so I will make sure that other potential buyer know your attitude.

You realize seronis isnt actually a staff member, but just a normal forum user?

If you have a problem with Desura - PLEASE take it to them. They have forums and customer support for problems they are causing. RoboB0b (the only staff member) cannot do more than submitting the new version (which he only forgot once, as far as I can remember) and hope they do not forget to pass it through. Somehow Steam - despite being the literal devil for many - manages this way better  :-[

Also, I deleted your profanities. Stop that please. Thanks
