Klingon Academy Combined Patch 1.02r5

Postby John » Fri Dec 07, 2018 7:59 pm

Updated test releases of a combined patch for Klingon Academy is now available here, these will hopefully provide a more streamlined experience of getting Klingon Academy up and running on modern operating systems.

Downloads Updated: 22:40 GMT - 8th December 2018

There was a bug in the initial release that caused the patch to fail during installation, the release has been refreshed and the issue is hopefully now corrected. Thanks to sean8711 for reporting the issue.

New in Klingon Academy Combined Patch 1.02r5

Launcher New Features:
After the combined patch is applied there are two new tabs in the settings dialog of the new launcher.

- Movies
When used this will automatically copy all Klingon Academy movies from the original CD media to the correct location on the users hard drive, this will remove the need to use the CD's when playing the single player campaign.

- Logs
The log viewer makes use of the d3demu.log file provided by Komat's wrapper, when opened via the launcher it displays information for the last game session only.

Patch New Features/Fixes:

- Installation Directory Detection
The patch should now automatically detect your Klingon Academy installation directory whilst also providing the option to manually select a different directory if you have multiple installations. By default the patch will look for a registry key left by the original Interplay installer.

- Antivirus False Positives
Prior versions of the combined patch have been falsely flagged by various Antivirus products, with 1.02r5 I have attempted to reduce this problem but only time will tell how successful it is. At the moment it has a relatively clean report, VirusTotal report results for the package and its components are available here. VirusTotal is not a real world environment so if you have had issues with prior versions of the patch being flagged by your Antivirus product I would be interested in any feedback on how 1.02r5 performs.

Game Fixes:

- Mission 9 Cutscene Fix
There was a minor error in the debriefing cutscene selection after mission 9 was completed.

Did your antivirus give you any alerts on the patch like it was doing for r4?

Thanks!

Was just thinking of KA the other day and have not played in it over ten years; found the old disks and even better this patch. Excellent work guys!

This is awesome. Thank you! I haven't played KA in years but I had to get out the disks and book...and bifocals.

Forgot to add, no problems with AV, Kaspersky Total Security.

Thanks for the update, it seems to be doing well on the false detections front.

Hi,

Thanks for the patch decided I wanted to play this game after many years.
Is the patch supposed to remove the need for CD's for Single Player?
I installed KA fresh from all 6 of my CD's and then applied 1.02r5 then ran through the Movie installation via the launcher that all went well.
I selected New Game but got prompted for CD 2.
All good if not supposed to work, thanks for this patch.

You found a bug :), I'll work on correcting it tonight. The files are being copied but it looks like the options.cfg file is not being updated with the local path to where the movies are installed. I did think KA always checked for a local Movies folder despite what was set in options.cfg, I could have sworn that it did but I must be thinking about something else.

Fixed release should be up by the end of the week.

Thanks for the report!

Quick update to the above - I've reworked and fixed a few bugs on the movie installer including correct options.cfg update after install, unless I run into anything else it should be good to go for some point over the weekend/end of month.

Hi,

I couldn't post in the 1.02r6 thread, but this new patch did indeed fix the issue with needing CD to start a new game.

The steps I had to do to get it to work was uninstall current movie files, install patch 1.02r6, then do the movie installer again and was fine.

Thanks for fix.

Thanks for the update, glad it fixed the issue. I never thought about that :oops: but that's the work around I would have recommended though :)

The r6 news comments should now be open.
