    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    There is going to be an Early Access Launch but we don't have a safe release date yet scheduled. We want to launch in Early Access at the best possible game state, so that the game is playable, stable and enjoyable, not rushed out.

    It is still a work in progress but it shows the general art direction. Thank you all guys for liking!

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    It is a completely different project entity, not having any similarity to the previous Ultimate General games which were about land combat. It is a bold project that we finally decided to make, after years of interest on this time period and the corresponding naval genre.

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    Hello again, It has been quite long before we updated this thread with more information about our upcoming game. We would like to post two pictures showing our work in progress: "An armoured cruiser in shipyard". At this time we want to announce a round description of what this game is about: Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts or short version “Dreadnoughts” is going to be a single player game on ship design and combat covering real and fictional wars from 1890 to 1936. Like all the products from Game Labs it will give a fresh and unique look on that era with great attention to detail and realism of ship fighting. More official information is going to be provided in the coming months in this thread. Thanks for reading!

    Darth Please UPDATE GOG.com with 1.09 Patch

    Happy to know that all is sorted out! We don't recommend trying playing UGCW with Windows XP. Multiple issues can happen, although the game could launch successfully, depending on your system. This was considered but was dropped as an idea because it would over-complex gameplay for the average player and would deteriorate game performance significantly, since we already offer battles vs many units. Too early to announce but we can't deny that this era is considered to be the next game of the series. Formation variety will be richer in next game, surely.

    Darth Please UPDATE GOG.com with 1.09 Patch

    Check in your game library if the above is available. If yes, all is ok. Just download and install both files to be sure.

    Darth Please UPDATE GOG.com with 1.09 Patch

    Hello, it is having the latest patch which is a hotfix over 1.8 (the last version). If you don't use the auto-update feature of GOG. com (Galaxy) then you have to download and install manually the latest patch from the site. Can you check back and inform if all ok?

    No Audio

    As far as we know from reports and any other online source, there is no confirmed issue regarding our game and headsets. Maybe something related to "Window mode" option is conflicting? Do you play in Full screen or Window mode (see in game's option menu).

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    These are WIP models, not a final product, so indeed any details how things are going to work are hard to explain at the moment

    No Audio

    Hello, the problem is definitely related to your system and probably the drivers of your card. I suggest to update your audio drivers and check also if your headsets are muted for some reason. Go to Control Panel->Hardware->Sound to find helpful settings (assuming you have Windows).

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    Thank you guys for the on going interest to follow this thread. I wish we could share more details at this moment. Before we are able to share more information about the game, we will periodically offer some 3D model images which show the art direction of the game, regarding the war ships. Here are some early torpedo boats of 1890-1900 era.

    Work in progress: Dreadnoughts

    Yes, it would be possible to fight at those waters and more! There is going to be a campaign with much freedom to do various actions. Indeed. Cressy and Drake classes It is too early to say exactly what we are making but it is safe to announce that we are not making a World of Warships style of gameplay, in which you only fight vs enemy ships. There is going to be a much more involved gameplay with tactical and strategic factors.

    Android game war of colony using UGCW footage

    Thank you for the report. Unfortunately, it happens for several similar scum "games".
  23. If your game does not launch, you see a black screen and nothing happens, please try the following: 1. Verify integrity of game cache - because game files may became corrupted Go to your Steam Library=> Right click on "Ultimate General: Civil War => In the dialogue window select "Properties"=> In the new window that appears, go to tab "Local Files"=> Then click on "Verify Integrity of Game Cache". A process starts to examine if game installation is missing some files. If this is true, they will be automatically re-acquired by Steam download service. 2. Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) or (x86) You can find these files in our game folder, usually found in: C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Ultimate General Civil War\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2010 or download them from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632 Launch BOTH FILES x64 and x86. Sometimes Steam doesn't automatically install but these are required files to run our game. 3. Delete Options files Because the game is still in development, some of your custom changes in Options may not work with a next patch and cause corruption to Option files. You can delete the Option files, usually located in: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Game Labs\Ultimate General Civil War delete the following: controls.bin ioptions.bin Those files will be auto-generated when you launch the game. 4. Check your Antivirus Depending on your Anti-Virus software and your custom system settings, the game can be blocked and not start at all. If you anticipate problems running the game, then disable your Antivirus to see if that helps. Your Antivirus may have added the game to its threat list and you will have to exclude it manually. 5. Uninstall/Install Video Card Drivers Uninstall your video card drivers, restart your PC and install again the latest drivers. This solution has worked for some users and is typically a problem solver for any game. You can check for latest drivers in the following sites, depending on your card: http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx http://support.amd.com/en-us/download 6. Delete Options from registry Use „regedit“ application to find game's registry. Find the application using Search of Windows system. - When you open "Regedit" (Registry Editor) go to Edit=>Find from top menu. - Search with the keyword "Ultimate General Civil War" - After some time you should navigate automatically to the game's registry folder, usually found in such structure: COMPUTER\HKEY_USERS\..\Game Labs\Ultimate General Civil War - Delete everything inside this folder - Registry should be now cleaned from corrupted files. You can install the game again to be sure that everything is up to date. 7. Resolution issue If the problem is related to your monitor resolution then we advise to try the following: - Change your Graphics Display Resolution on your system. There are plenty of online instructions depending on your system. You can search for example with keyword: "How to change resolution in windows 10". - The resolution should be in "Recommended" setting, but you can try a different common resolution, that is supported by your monitor and attempt to launch the game again. The following method worked for user "whiteadder86": 1. Switched PC graphics display resolution down from the recommended 1920x1080 to 1680x1050. 2. Opened the game successfully through Steam. 3. Used the game's options menu to switch the resolution back up to 1920x1080. 4. Then switched PC graphics display resolution back up to 1920x1080. 8. Crash report If nothing from the above works, then select "Crash Report" when you launch the game from Steam and describe the problem. Your email will be used to contact you if needed.
