Ah, it's good to see this project is still this much alive.
I'm having a ton of texture issues with this high res version. I'm sure many have been already reported in, but it can't hurt to hear it again.
1. Ok, I can't see Syreen starbase commander anymore. It worked in the first version, but not anymore. Not even subtitles are showing.
2. Also, there's a slight misplacement of texture in Chmmr's animation. It seems to have something to do with the lightning there.
3. Also, Lurg's lava lamp is way off when the animation takes place.
4. And yes, the starmap. The stars are in different position than it seems in the map. That might be the most annoying texture bug I've encountered.
So this is damn well done overall.

And I also have to say that, even though it really doesn't matter for the game, that I would like the Chmmr Avatar ship to be a bit more robust looking. You know what I mean? I'm just used to the original version, and the new streamlined Avatar just seems kinda soft.

That's all for now Smiley I wish to see more of this soon

I have to use hires640x480 since hires1280x960 is too much for my pc.

When i start the windows installer, it always freezes at 40% of downloading.

I can run the game, but I cant toy around with graphics or anything it seems.

I'm sorry you're having troubles there...
You can download that file separately here:
http://code.google.com/p/project6014/wiki/Downloads?tm=2

Just save the  .UQM files into your Project 6014 content directory.
On XP this is:
C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters project6014 demo\content\addons

Hopefully this will work for you.
Cheers!

I downloaded it but I got some really weird font/text error, lots of characters seem to be replaced with random letters and symbols.

It might be what was reported here. I had the same issue and the same fix, deleting the 0.1.0 demo data file solved the problem.

This should fix the problem:
http://code.google.com/p/project6014/issues/detail?id=29

1. Don't set the graphics to 640x480 or 1074x768.  Use the Hi-Res640 or Hi-Res1280 options instead.
2. Set the Scalar to NONE.
3. Quit setup menu.
4. Probably will need to restart.
5. Enjoy!

To those with garbled text:
Hi-Res1280 looks like: OIRAS12&OX9$0
Hi-Res640 looks like: OIRS$"0X"&0
SCALAR set to none looks like: NONA

The "4ATURN TO MAIN MENU"

If you are still having problems....let me know.

You shouldn't have to. It's really something quirky with the settings. 

At the main menu:
1. Go into Setup.
2. Set the Scalar to NONE.
3. Set the Graphics settings as high as you can (Hi-Res1280)
4. Go Back to the Main Menu.
It should need to restart the game.

Here's what it should look like:


If you have Garbled Text in Setup:


At the Main Menu:
Hi-Res1280 looks like: OIRAS12&OX9$0
Hi-Res640 looks like: OIRS$"0X"&0
SCALAR set to none looks like: NONA

The "4ATURN TO MAIN MENU"

1. Go into Setup.
2. Select which Graphics mode OIRAS12&OX9$0 (Hi-Res1280x960. Preferred) or OIRS$"0X"&0 (Hi-Res 640x480)
3. Set SCALAR to: NONA (None)
4. To return to the main menu go to:  "4ATURN TO MAIN MENU"
The game will need to restart.

That should fix your problems. If it doesn't, let me know.

Also, if you have any clue how to build UQM on your OS of choice, you can get their latest development code from SVN, that bug's gone (been fixed for weeks, too!). Of course it may be broken in other ways...
