Was looking thru some Disc collections, and found my Homeworld Cataclysm box. Everything in there.. Figured I would see if I could play it.
It installed without a problem. When it went to get Registered, it couldn't find the SierraStudios site.
Tried to run it. It got thru the beginning movies, then, Cataclysm.exe crashed.
I looked thru some messages, and figured that the problem might be, that I need Patch 1.05 (1.5?), to run it on Windows Xp. Found a link here (and Cnet Downloads) for the patch, but, doesn't get anything. I even searched, on my pc, thinking that Maybe I still had the patch file, somewhere. Nope. I Did find a directory with Saved games, but, I had uninstalled the actual game files.
Is there a place that might have the patch files? I checked the Activision site. I think they were the ones who bought up some of what was left of Sierra ??
Even looked for Barking Dog Studios. Did find some stuff about collars or noises, that might stop a dog from barking (;->...
