Klingon Academy Combined Patch 1.02r7

Postby John » Sat Aug 03, 2019 5:45 pm

New releases of the combined patches for Klingon Academy are now available, these patches will hopefully provide a more streamlined experience of getting Klingon Academy up and running on modern operating systems. Thanks to Jiri Dvorak (Komat), without his work on the wrapper the game would not be playable today. Thanks also to Michael Groschupp (CISN_Destroyer) for providing the German translations for the new launcher.

New in Klingon Academy Combined Patch 1.02r7

Launcher Fixes:

- Movies
Various bugs have been fixed that could under some circumstances cause Movie installation to fail.

- Log Viewer
Clearing the log file could sometimes fail if the file had been redirected by Windows to the VirtualStore.

- Theme Music
Someone requested a quick way to change the theme music (Sorry, I lost the e-mail), that option is now available by right clicking the Speaker icon with left click used for muting. MP3 & WAV files are supported, this was in r6 but it was broken at the time or release.

A combined patch for Klingon Academy UK & US / German that includes:

- Replacement Launcher (Includes wrapper configuration, movie installation and log viewing options.) by John

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.

I would appreciate it if any anti-virus false positives, bug reports or feedback could be posted in the comments thread of this news post. Keep on eye on the thread for updates.

Suggestion:

I *just* realized you released this update, you should also make a post in the forum when you do (this doesn't show in the forum list I think)

Will do for the next one which will be coming in a week or so, I need to sort a few other small issues that crop up rarely with move install.

Thanks!

This got me thinking a little, I do want to add a basic MP lobby to the launcher at some point and I am bound to make some mistakes doing that which will require a few fixes....

So, Klingon Update?

Amazingly this seems to work without annoying AV software.

People asking about changing the theme music. That should be just a simple case of naming either a wav or mp3 (think it's a wav) file correctly and placing it in the correct location. The NGA mod has an amended theme for the launcher, so that should provide the file name and location.

Super-n00b question. I am attempting to run this patch on a fresh install on Surface Book running Windows 10 (64-bit)... after the patch's first dialog it asks me to confirm the install location of my copy of KA (which is the correct default location), as soon as I confirm, I get the very unhelpful "Patch Error" dialog box. Not sure what steps to take next. Have tried applying older patches (without success). Uninstalling and reinstalling base images, and then rerunning the patch. Running the patch both from within and outside its ZIP file. Nothing seems to help. This is the ONLY Trek game that I desperately want... SOMEONE give step by step on how to get it running in a modern OS... PLEASE!

Found another thread that mentions the "Patch Error" problem. uninstalled KA, wiped the contents of both the Program Files (x86) folder and the associated AppData/Local/VirtualStore folder. Reinstalled KA (from original discs rather than ISOs this time). Ran the patch. It said "8 files patched", but if I run the program and hit "Play" it does the black screen and crash (w/o error msg) to desktop, or just hangs on a black screen. Also, if I hit "Settings" rather than "Play" I get this Debug window "System.String Substring(Int32, Int32) - Length cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: length"

Which build of Windows 10 are you currently using? I can try it in a VM.

Any chance you can post a screenshot of that?
