So evidently some lucky SoB's got e-mails with a code for occulus and other poor souls like me just got an impulse update that doesn't have occulus. How lame is that... thanks stardock for teasing me.

- Add Oculus for FREE to your Demigod account by entering your email address at https://store.stardock.com/product.aspx?productid=(did everyone get the same #?)
- Oculus: Blast Off range now increases from 15 flat to 15/16/18/20.
- Oculus: Brain Storm clears negative effects.
- Oculus: Ball Lightning health increased from 600/650/700/750 to 600/765/930/1095.
- Fixes for Russian voice localizations.

Demigod v1.20 (1.20.145 on Impulse)
--------------------------------

- Fix for TB move-while-firing (confirmed working for all reported exceptions)
- Fix for /ignore and /squelch (confirmed working for all reported exceptions)
- Changed location of DLC registry data from HKLM to HKCU

 

Yay!  TB fixed is what I'm really excited about... looks like they made Doc Occ have some decent potential.  Magus Rod + Brain Storm = Win... you all heard it here first.

hmm... they didn't update the version?  Interesting.  2 possibilities - this is the Occulus that's been in the code all along or they are pushing an updated build that they received from GPG that includes the Occulus tweaks they requested. My guess is that they are pushing an updated build

Either way, they have to grant access to the DLC one way or the other.  You won't automatically get Occ unless they've unlocked him globally already. 

But based on what Rosco_p said, I'd check the change log.  Looking forward to one of you guys posting it as I'm not at home...

Rosco_P do you know the reason for inputing the email address?

Is it to test a new impulse feature or something like that?

I have the occulus reg key now but where do I get it do I register that as a new key against demi god? I already have one. Instructions are very unclear.

nzac: I'm not exactly sure why they're doing it this way.

econundum1 & Orcasms: As long as you used the same email that Demigod is registered to, no action should be required beyond getting the update, and logging into multiplayer.

Quoting econundrum1,

Fixed that for you.  A patch should not require the end user to do anything other than download and install it.  It should not ask for an email address, particularly since I have already associated an email address with my Impulse account.  It should not send me a serial number with no guidance as to what to do with it.

 

I've been using Impulse for 2-3 months now, and until today my impression was favorable.  Stardock's product seemed on par with Steam, with which I have never had a problem or issue.  Unfortunately, my opinion of Impulse has now taken a sharp downturn as a direct result of the byzantine patching/unlocking process for Oculus.  In a truly polished product, all of this would be completely transparent to the user: download the update, run Demigod, boom, Oculus is unlocked for all game modes.  I don't need to actually see the registration key unless I'm installing on a different machine, which I'm not.  Stardock desperately needs to take a page from Valve's book on how to do online content delivery.

He could have meant 4 Mebibyte per second, which would equal to a 33.5 Megabit per second line (which is perfectly possible in some regions ) or he could have meant 4 Megabit per second, which equals to 488.3 Kibibyte per second.

The key you get is not what you install the program with.  Demigod The Game is already registered to your Stardock.net account.  All you need to do is register for Oculus with the same email that Demigod is registered to, and Oculus should be added to your account.  You don't need to reinstall Demigod, just update it.  Once it's updated, you simply need to log into multiplayer in the game, and you'll have access to Oculus.

Yeah, but in the Impulse menu, it says Download Speed: x KB/s, which is referring to kilobytes per second, unless you jump up above 1 mb/s
