PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING THE DEMO

I'm going to detail here what's in the mod and what is not. I will also explain how to download the Demo when it is finally finished(not yet! still awaiting a sound pack + other minor stuff)

Description
Please bear in mind that it is a Demo/Alpha and that although we have done some testing it has not been thoroughly tested, that will fall to all of you. We welcome error/bug notifications and constructive ideas for improvements, but if you want to be negative I suggest you go elsewhere or wait for a later version. Do not go building an empire expecting following versions to be compatible with your saves, because they won't be. The Demo is a chance to get a feel for the universe we're trying to build and to fly our ships - it is not the complete article by a long shot, but should be fun to test

Content

Sectors
46 Sectors (EA-16 H/S-16 Others-14)

Ships
Over 60 ships, currently only EA ones are purchasable. Warlock is the only major EA ship not included.

Stations
A number of EA and other stations can be seen, docked to and traded with. No stations are currently purchasable.

Other

English language textfile only to start. I'm sure our German/Austrian counterparts here will try to convert it as quickly as they can. for other languages it would be wise to wait for further versions before translating.

New GUI/HUD will not be ready for the Demo

Some missions available, more are planned after release. Demo PLOT will be added as it becomes available.

Flight training works as does the first 'Arisia' Mission and the 'Escort ships' Corporation one...after that it might get a bit odd.

New sector Music for hyperspace and some other areas.

Works with TC v2.7/ v2.7.1

*EPILEPSY WARNING*
Hyperspace contains flashes, they can be switched off in the Artificial life menu by disabling the 'LightTheHyperDark' scripts.



REMEMBER: THIS IS A DEMO/ALPHA AND NOT A COMPLETE MOD/GAME. SO DON'T GO EXPECTING TOO MUCH. IT IS A CHANCE FOR YOU TO SEE SOME OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE B5X3TC MOD SO FAR.

Disclaimer: *DO NOT* install the mod on an X3TC folder with working mods as this release will overwrite many of your files and scripts and even on the removal of a cat\dat file the game will not return to its old form.
download and enjoy at your own discretion."

Download and Installation

DETAILS OF HOW TO INSTALL THE DEMO AND THE PATCH

Clean install of X3 TC 2.7.1 OR HIGHER VERSION
*If you want Cycrows cheats then install them first, before our stuff*

Download the .Exe from one of the following locations;

SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/b5x3tc/f iles/

Filefront:
http://www.filefront.com/17148291/B5X3TC Mod.v1.0.exe

Then run the exe setting the X3 TC directory as the target.
WARNING: The .Exe will overwrite a number of original TC files in the loadscreen, scripts and soundtrack folders. If you wish to preserve TC in a playable form then please back these up.

*RENAME THE DEMO CAT FILES TO THE HIGHEST NUMBER* so if your highest cat/dat files are 12 then rename ours to 13 etc..

REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCESS FOR THE PATCH.EXE, remembering to rename the cat file..so if your mod cat was 13 then the patch pair of cat/dat files are named 14.

http://www.filefront.com/17204131/B5X3TC Mod.v1.1p.exe

***********OTHER IMPORTANT INFO*********

*Our Loadscreens do not replace the originals, create a file called 'hidden' (or something else) inside the TC loadscr folder and place all the original TC pictures in there. This way you will retain them but only see ours during the game.*

Once installed select NEW GAME then 'ASPIRING HUMAN' to begin

*SEE EPILEPSY WARNING ABOVE

*If your running the game in German(text ID=49) please see the German forums for how to alter it to English text(44) until a full German version can be made by its community.*

*also once in-game go to the options menu(bottom lhs)
then graphics-->gamma-->reduce from 127 to 110(ish) for better lighting.


PLEASE READ THE INSTALLATION NOTES CAREFULLY

*LOADSCREENS*
For anyone still seeing original TC loadscreens please create a sub-folder within the original TC loadscr folder in the TC directory(e.g. mine is called 'hidden') and put all the original loadscreen pictures in that e.g. x3screen00001. You should then only see ours in-game whilst retaining the originals should you want them...simples.

PLEASE DO NOT POST HERE, THANKS

Just a note to point out that I've updated the download and instillation instructions above to include the Patch. Since people are still downloading both and some are still having issues....mostly with language files for German versions of the game(see German forums for help).

Thanks mate =)

But I think I found a mistake:

[...] create a file called 'hidden' [...]

I think it should be "directory" instead of file, shouldn't it?

Kind regards
