Known Issues

Due to the size of the Windows installer it may take a long time for the installer to actually start. This may last several minutes (up to five minutes in some instances). There are reports that virus checkers may extend this delay so you may wish to turn them off during the installation process.
This problem hasn't been reported yet for Mac but might exist there too.
Multiplayer is currently very much in beta. Also, in order to enhance the eventual multiplayer experience, the team decided not to finalise the balance between ships. Feedback from players is very welcome. The true multiplayer experience will be available in the next release. Till then, if you wish to experiment, here's how to get started.
Some Windows users are reporting issues with joystick detection in-game. Going to Control Panel -> Game Controllers and selecting "Advanced" then setting your controller as the preferred device, has been reported to fix this.

If you have other problems, we have a tech support forum here.

Installation

Windows

Simply download the installer and run it. The Installer will guide you through installing the game.


Mac OS X

Mount Diaspora.dmg, and follow instructions within to copy Diaspora to the Applications folder.
Note: Before you play for the first time (only need to do this once), please double click on RUN_ME_ONCE.command to install the most appropriate graphics settings.
Double click on wxlauncher, and press Play, located in the bottom right corner.


Linux (Source Only)

(Sorry, but no one on the team has the time or expertise needed to make native Linux packages. We're hoping that each distro's community will be able to find people willing to maintain packages for their distro.)

First, open a terminal and change to the directory where you downloaded Diaspora.

Then open the archive by typing
Code: [Select]
tar --lzma -xf Diaspora_R1_Linux.tar.lzma

or if that command doesn't work, the following two commands instead:
Code: [Select]
unlzma -z -k Diaspora_R1_linux.tar.lzma

tar -xf Diaspora_R1_Linux.tar

Then follow the instructions in Diaspora_R1_Linux/Diaspora/README.txt, with one correction: after you start the launcher in step 5, select your screen resolution from the drop down box in the Basic Settings tab before you press Play. Otherwise, you'll be running in 1024x768.
