Greetings players! We've put up a newer version of the ICO server for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that has some improved logging output. This will hopefully make it easier to track down any strange issues that get reported relating to the ICO service.
However, we need some testing on this before it becomes mainstream for all users. For any who are interested in helping us out, you can modify your rebellion.user.setting file as outlined below to use the test server instead.
- Be sure to have v1.1 of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion installed and have run it at least once.
- Open Windows Explorer to: Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Setting
- Open rebellion.user.setting with Windows Notepad.
- Find the line that says IcoServerPort. Change this value from 8000 to 6100.
- Save the file.
When you start Sins: Rebellion next, you will use the test ICO server when you go onto Ironclad Online. To switch back to the regular server, just reverse the change above.
Keep in mind that if you use the Steam overlay to invite a friend to play, you must both be on the test server.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!
