Test results and comments on versions of Tribes: Ascend that are no longer available but are kept here as a resource.
Installing the downloader almost works. It fails to start the service. The files still remain, however attempting to run the Launcher or other apps causes .NET issues with hard coded applications. Turns out, even on windows you MUST install all the launcher/patcher files on the C: drive - I didn't try changing the directory on C:, however I assume something is hard coded. Submitted a bug report to Hi-Rez team. Due to resent updates, I no can't even get the launcher to install - once I am able to, I'll be rebooting to see if that clears the issue, then try installing the game again on "c:"
What does not
The launcher and Updater.
What was not tested
At this point it appears the updater and launcher which is required to install the full game is written in .NET - This under Linux requires MONO to run and has some missing dependencies. I'm currently updating a Windows VM to install the game with, then will continue to test the game once I've gotten that far.
