|The list of changes is very exhaustive, so please see version.txt in the root SS2845 install directory for a full list. This patch should fix a lot of the stability and crashing issues that people were having, and is the updated 1.1 patch that IVIaedhros mentioned earlier.
How to use Server Admin features
At the bottom right of the players screen (hit F2 while in game) you will see a Login button. Press that and type in the server admin password set in the preferences ($Pref::Server::AdminPassword) and click OK to login. You can also use the console function SAD(Password); to the same effect.
Once you have logged in, you will be shown as a [Super] on the gui and will be able to right click any player on the gui. Right-clicking a player will bring up a menu with Kick and Ban. Those are the only two options at this time. To clear the popup without selecting a menu item, you can either left click on any player or close the gui.
IMPORTANT: After applying the patch, go to C:\Program Files\Starsiege 2845 Alpha Tech Release\SS2845\base\prefs and delete your CLIENTPREFS.CS, SERVERPREFS.CS, and CONFIG.CS FILES.
After that go to C:\Program Files\Starsiege 2845 Alpha Tech Release\SS2845 and run cleanDSO.bat before starting the game. You will need to reset your configuration data after doing this.
Thanks to ClanCore Network for the download.
