Early Access version 77


:warning: The game is entering feature freeze for the next few days. No changes or fixes will be performed during this phase. I’ll allow 24 hours for any emergency patch issues to crop up, after which the Steam version will be prepared, beta tested, and released. Development will continue after that.

Unavoidably, existing CHLs have been removed in this update. You can buy them (as well as key packs) through PayPal (you don’t actually need a PayPal account :asterisk: , but you will need a credit/debit card). Prices are always listed in Euros (€), which PayPal will convert to your local currency. Alternatively, you can wait for the Steam version (which will be released in a few days). CIU supports local pricing through Steam wallet, so you’ll be able to see prices directly in your local currency.

:asterisk: Now I’m confused. PayPal says that it doesn’t require a PayPal account, but apparently that only holds for the U.S.? As soon as you change your country, an account is required?! Please report here with your experiences, especially if you have paid for anything in the past through PayPal, but without having an actual PayPal account.

Due to scoring changes, all per-mission leaderboards and alll dares have been reset.

As a reminder regarding translations: Each new update might have new phrases that need translating. If you’re maintaining a translation, check after each update and fill in any missing phrases.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. :warning: Your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).


You will lose:

  • any in-mission progress
  • all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.
  • if any options have been removed or added to a new version, then all menu options (not just graphics) will be lost.

You are reminded that during Early Access you are responsible for backing up your own progress. Make a copy of everything under C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU (including all sub-folders). :warning: Never rename files or move them from one version folder to another. Simply make a copy and then later put it back exactly where you found it.
