Mission Report!

January 16th, 2012 | | Permalink

Going one 4 weeks since USI 2.0 and work still continues to bring the best to the best.  Now we now have more for all you die hard USI fans.  This new idea took shape and was constructed by Neo82 who was recently brought aboard the Dev team.

Introducing the first ever US Intervention Launcher.  This program is designed to help players keep their files updated.  If there is a patch, it will let you know.  Simply hit update and let the download begin.  When that is done the downloaded installer will start and you take it from there.  Then you can launch the game from there with optional settings like windowed mode and or screen resolutions.  The exe file will place the launcher in your USI folder and make a shortcut for you.  You must have USI 2.0g and patch installed in order to get the 2.1 patch that is ready via the launcher.

Links (3.24MB):  ModDb / GameFront / FilePlanet

As mentioned above, we have a new patch.  We got rid of the letters seen as revisions and called this one 2.1.  The mods folder name will remain the same until the new full build comes out.  At 265 MB, this download can be retrieved and installed using the new USI Launcher, but you must have USI 2.0g Core and Levels plus the fix in order to be patched correctly to 2.1.  The next full build will contain a new file structure with the zip files so we can update on the fly with smaller exe files.  This will keep our players updated and playing in the sand.

We made it even better!

One week ago, we released USI 2.0 (Ver 0.2f) after 4 years of hard work.  We received many bug reports and half the maps was crashing, but for those who played, it was fun.  Luckily we stayed on top of thing and kept working all week to deliver yet another full build with a bunch of tweaks to improve the game. That’s right the US Intervention team and black-sand-studios presents USI 2.0 (ver 0.2g).  The build was fully debugged by Devilman, the crashing issue was discovered by Neo82 and Knallkopp_02.  BloodyDeed provided the test server we have been using to fine tune this version.  This is another full build and there is no need to uninstall the first version.  The installer will clear the mod folder for you.
