I tried installing the v1.04 patch from the official Avencast site to fix my crashes and performance issues but it doesn't seem to work because I've got the game installed with steam.

I contacted steam and asked them to add the patch as a steam game update. This is their reply:

Quote:
Hello,

Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

Patches for third party games can only be distributed through Steam once the following two actions have occurred:

(1) The Publisher has provided us with the necessary files
(2) The Publisher has given us permission to release the update

The latest patches will be released as soon as possible, and will be downloaded automatically when available.

If you have questions about the availability of a specific patch, please contact the support department for the game in question.

Your patience is appreciated, please let us know if you have any other questions.

I don't know if you have already contacted steam but I would appritiate it if you could arrange a patch on steam.

Thanks in advance and any further information would be appritiated.

Thanks for telling us about that! What version did you get on Steam? Actually I thought they should have the latest v1.04.

Please let me know and I will take care of that.

Cheers,
Michael

There is no "Avencast patch history" and I am suffering problems said to be fixed in the very first patch so I don't think that any patches have been added to the game through steam :|
I am not sure if there is a way to check what version I have within the game's files but some other people have had problems they have posted on the game's steam forum (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=861) if that's any indication.

Thanks for your reply

if you post your logfile.txt I should be able to tell if they have the latest version. The file can be found in the installation directory (where the file Avencast.exe is)

Ok, I looked at the logfile again and spotted this:
Code:
Avencast Version: v1.04 - Tue May  6 10:37:56 2008(Time:5.22, free sysmem:2048)

So seems that I actually do have v1.04 and the steam person I spoke to didn't seem to know that either. Sorry for this :oops:

The game just seems to run very slowly and occasionally crashes. I get ALT+Tab issues that often crash the game aswell.
It may be because I have my res set high but I will live <3 I just save before I ALT + TAB so nothing is lost.

Hi, sorry to barge in, but I also am having problems with the Steam version, which I bought a few weeks ago.

currently getting script errors -- these pop up in a Windows 7 dialog box in the background, and when I close it, an in-game dialog box pops up with lots more script errors.

This is the content of the first error:
Code:
file:'scripts\seminarrooms\quests\ikarius\default_walk.c', line: 21: Unknown function 'Probability' accepting 1 arguments


if (Probability(0.3))
{


Kudos on putting in the copy-to-clipboard functionality!

log file from D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\avencast -- http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5815874/logfile.txt -- forum won't allow a .txt upload.

In hindsight, it would have been nice to know my hero would be male :P

@DarthVovo:

Thanks for your bugreport. I looks like your installation is somehow corrupt as a few essential script files don't seem to be available. Please try to reinstall the game. Also try to turn off your anti-virus during the installation - maybe it interferes in a strange way.
