Star Citizen deploys a new patch and kills its old launcher

    
35
Not feature-complete, of course, but you knew that from the name.

Star Citizen players have a new patch to contend with today, as Alpha 1.1.6 has been pushed live with a brand-new launcher. The previous launcher had been built with some third-party technology, but its replacement is both built wholly in-house and does a better job of utilizing bandwidth, making sure that it’ll be easier for players to download and install new patches. The irony, of course, is that it’s the perfect tool to download the patch which includes it.

Other improvements in this patch include a new matchmaking system that will match players against one another based upon previous performance and changes to the rules of Vanduul Swarm, Battle Royale, and Squadron Battle. It’s just the sort of thing to use for a solid weekend’s entertainment; you can check out the full patch notes for the changes in depth.

Happy to help.
Been using it for some time and are very satisfied with it.
I use it every time I uninstall something, and in almost every case there is something left over, only a handful of times has there not been anything left.

melissaheather  Love to know just what you Alpha’d or Beta’d because at these stages everything I’ve beta’s (going all the way back to EverQuest) had dev posts where they told you to uninstall and reinstall – and gave instructions on the best way to do it (like CIG did HAD you bothered to read the Dev posts)l. And I’m talking real Betas (like SC) – not an ‘open beta’ where the game in question is launching publically in a couple of weeks.
Again, if you expect a smooth install/uninstall in a real Alpha testing phase Alpha testing may not be for you.

I cant really argue with that, too many uninstallers just removes the game files, but leaves things such as save games and registry keys behind to clutter up the computer.
It shouldn’t be necessary to do so, but I have resorted to using a 3rd party program(Revo Unistaller Pro) to make sure everything is cleaned up after I uninstall something.
You might be surprised just how much junk is actually left over after you uninstall a game, both files, folders and registry keys.

aleluiz I complained about it and I won’t be buying anything. So know real point made there. I know what you were going for, but those are two different things. If you don’t buy the expansion you miss out on content. If you don’t buy a ship you can get it in game. 
Maybe learn what a Ponzi scam actually is.

paragonlostinspace tobascodagama Estranged Darkdrakke melissaheather It’s too bad when you see fans go overboard and attack anything that doesn’t come with pompoms attached to it.

An installer that cleans up and removes old junk isn’t an unreasonable thing to ask for.
