Download Section: Everything you need
« on: July 09, 2008, 10:31:20 am »
As a download section is missing on the page itself, I decided to bring all the useful and frequently asked files for Machines together in just one post. This measure is pointed to reduce the confusing rate of new members or guys who desperately look for quick support for their game. If any other file could be interesting for this topic, send me a message and I will add it to this page.

If you cannot find a patch for your non-US version of Machines, simply try out the US XP patch instead. Another user had this issue before with his European/UK release of Machines and tried using the US XP patch instead of searching for another specified patch for his version:

I am currently looking for the Europe/UK 1.15 patch, and think it would make a great addition to the download section :)
I do not know whether you really need this patch, as the XP patch already includes the version 1.15 patch. I would suggest you trying out the following:
  • Try the other XP patches first. Maybe they do work...
  • Download Machines via the Machines Download System, and add every file you already have from your copy of Machines that is missing yet to make it complete. It does not need any additional patches then.
I did as you suggested and tried applying the US XP Patch to my UK/Europe game - and it worked :) The audio messages at mission briefings are messed up, but the game seems to work fine still! Thanks :)

I think that any XP patch of any language fits on any Machines release. The only possible consequence I could think of is another language used in your menus. But this still requires some research I will certainly provide in the next time.

Greets, keK

Yeah, well did you ever notice on the mission where you have to kidnap the commandants that in the intro video there were wraith reapers as well?
Have you checked out any of my mods?
-If not, it's probably because I haven't uploaded any. :wink:

  • Added patch for Options Menu in Patches and Utility
  • Added RAD Game Tools in Media
  • Added Oasis Modification in Game Modifications

W.T.F. thats my wallpaper!!! nevermind im glad its there.
I added most wallpapers that have been contributed to this forum, yours was a quite good-quality one, so I added it here.

The two-eyed Reaper is a wallpaper contributed by Metalbeast. In his newer wallpapers he has added a third eye.

Yeah, well did you ever notice on the mission where you have to kidnap the commandants that in the intro video there were wraith reapers as well?
Yes, they have. This shows that you can still track old some files of previous versions of Machines in the current version.

Please do not post further wallpaper comments here. Post your opinions about them in their respective topics. They can all be found in the subforum Screenshots.

I noticed you uploaded the complete disk 1 on another site. Would it be possible for you to upload the complete disk 2? I sent you an e-mail, but I have a feeling that didn't go through.

Anyways, if you could, that would be AWESOME.

Thanks in advance.
