What about the SDC patch? I'm not sure if thats where other people are getting the patch. Is that causing problems? I know I couldn't join a game after I patched about an hour ago using the link you provide here.

So wait, everything is actually fine? Or is this 1.04a and everyone who got the original 1.04 needs to get it?

1.04 is fine. Just us who downloaded via Impulse couldn't connect or host to everyone else.

But what if we already downloaded through Impulse? I did that with a friend, and we played a game together fine. Should we expect another patch?

EDIT: Hrm, now Sins isn't showing up in Impulse.

There were lots of little files for the 1.04 update. Getting them all down as fast as possible for the 1.04 update was less than pleased on some (but not all) machines. If it was happy and you were able to play like online like Hollow Man, it's fine, shouldn't need to worry about it.

Use the standalone update or SDC if appropriate for tonight. Link above in post #1.

Ok, good. But for the heck of it, I downloaded and ran the standalone patch from the "update" URL over my Impulse patching. It ran fine. With luck it just went over the top of the Impulse patch and put back anything that may have been missing or not updated.

I can still get on ICO, so I assume I'm still good.

EDIT: I went to SDC after I ran the standalone patch, and it said I had 1.04, and 1.04.022 was available. I assume they're really the same thing, but I decided to run the update through SDC for good measure. Things still look good.

Great!! And because this is going to be a hot post, I am going to take advantage. Can someone tell me where the .record files are stored on windows vista machines?

Thanks for the patch Stardock and Ironclad! Its working great.

Seems like the patch finally fixed the particle bug, now I can play as Vasari without having the effects disappear on me after 30mins of play.

I built the standalone installer before all the SDC/Impulse builds were published to the public, so it just claims it's 1.04 vs the 1.04.022 revision the servers used for SDC and the like on release. I'll see about updating that tomorrow for the version key. No files different.

This patch doesn't seem to work via SDC - I downloaded it through that first and it updated my version number in SDC and in the bottom right of the main menu when you start the game, but I wasn't seeing any changes in game.

I've since downloaded it from the link in this thread and applied that patch, which seems to have worked out ok (except that SDC wants to reupdate the game again now).

Apart from the install issues... patch woohoo .

Unfortunately, it seems that I'm the only user who has trouble with the patch!
I tried the update via SDC: It stopped at " loading file list"...nothing happend for hours...
Ok, tried to update via the 16.5 MB archive from this site: Installation was ok but now the games dumps when loading a saved game..*X%§$D%§$%....
Now I restored the 1.03 version.
Does anybody has similar problems with the update?
Thanks in advance for any helpful comments...

No, my buddy and I are also having this issue. We have updated via SDC, and still got the 'Disconnected From Game Server' error. We both tried a complete uninstall/reinstall of the game and the update via SDC and are still experiencing the same issue. Sucks that this happened on the first weekend I've had in weeks where I had nothing to do but play Sins.

So when do the final Mod tools come out? Are they still going to be released? I haven't heard much about these for a while but I thought they were to be released after the demo and 1.04.

All Mods have to be reworked for each patch. Just like the savegames will not work from 1.03 -> 1.04, a 1.03 Mod will not work on 1.04 (unless it's just textures). Check your Mod's thread for details.
