I had to adjust my video settings lower to prevent a minidump (crash), however this bug is also present with my computer in Windows 7 and 8.

Activator from Stardock Central works
by Michael Ballantyne on Sunday September 23rd 2012, 18:57
Can download the installer here:

Installs to drive_c/users//Local Settings/Application Data/Stardock/Stardock Central

Copy sdActivate.exe and Activate.lng from there.

Full write up on my blog for how I got everything going on mac wine wineskin is here:
Activator doesn't work

As we all know activator doesn't work. Is there any way to play the game/get it activated (Purchased through steam)?
Activation Window doesn't work

I could install sins trinity without a problem from the stardock website.

But if I try to start the game with the Sins of a Solar Empire Diplomacy.exe, the Stardock Account Registration Window appears but the register button doesn't work. Nothing happens. No console output. The Quit button works. Is something in my wine configuration missing?

I use wine 1.32. Did someone got this problem, too?
Losing Sound

After 10-40 minutes I lose sound on sins of a solar empire. I haven't tried checking console yet.
No user.setting

I've been looking in the "Application Data/Ironclad Games/Sins of a Solar Empire" folder, there's nothing else than an empty "License" folder.
Tried to launch the game, change a few setting, play 5 minutes and save, but no user.setting file anywhere. I tried to create it myself, but nothing work so far.
Much obliged!
