New User Registration Enabled, Comms Issue & Site Updates

Postby John » Thu May 10, 2018 2:43 pm

New user registrations are now enabled. E-mail verification using a valid e-mail address is required to activate new accounts, if your activation e-mail does not arrive please check your spam folder and if you encounter any problems please feel free to Contact me.

The main antispam precaution on the forum was reCAPTCHA v1, this became mostly ineffective in early 2017 so an additional spam check was added in the background that checked new registration attempts against a known spammer database. Unfortunately this combination also eventually ended in failure and registration was disabled. reCAPTCHA v1 became depreciated and was fully deactivated by Google in March 2018, this week I have installed a modification to replace it with the I'm not a robot test - reCAPTCHA v2.

I have also been made aware of some difficulty in contacting me, this has now hopefully been resolved and the Contact page should now be working as normal. I've tracked down my old site backups and will be starting to populate the downloads..... if I don't get it done in time for the 20th Anniversary of the games release then someone can throw something heavy at me :D but the plan is to get it done in the next few weeks.

Klingon Academy Combined Patch 1.02r2 - Test Release 2

Postby John » Sat May 26, 2018 3:55 pm

A test release of a combined patch for Klingon Academy is now available here, this will hopefully provide a more streamlined experience of getting Klingon Academy up and running on modern operating systems.
A combined patch for Klingon Academy UK & US that includes:

- Klingon Academy Patch 1.02 by Interplay
- Multithreading & Rendering Fixes (v1.22) by Komat
- Replacement Launcher (Includes wrapper configuration options) by John
- Screenshot Fix

This patch assumes that you have freshly installed Klingon Academy from the original Interplay CD installation media on Windows 7 x86/x64 or above which also has the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or above installed for the replacement launcher.

Extract the downloaded zip file and run the extracted Klingon_Academy_1.02.r2_US_UK.exe

German version coming soon.

I have tested this on Windows 7 x86 and Windows 10 x86 & x64 but unfortunately I have not been able to test on Windows 7 x64 or any version of Windows 8.x.

Update: Please see this post for details on antivirus false positives.
