software OS4   software OS4 : Digital Universe 1.7 - Update available
   posted by BillE on 25-Dec-2012 21:43:42 (3899 reads)
Merry Christmas.


After a long while existing users of Digital Universe v1.6 can finally update it to v1.7.

To do this go to http://www.digitaluniverse.org.uk and click the "Install Files" link. To access the next page you will require to login using your name which is case sensitive and is your real name without spaces, and your DU Registration number is the password.

UID example, John Smith would login as JohnSmith.

The password is not case sensitive and can be with or without the spaces between the numbers.

Click the appropriate link to download the update.




The web page will still state "Coming Soon - Digital Universe version 1.7" as I have still to prepare the ISO download for new users. Likewise the Ordering details will not be available until the standalone ISO is ready.


Important Note: Some users bought Digital Universe direct from the Syzygy website rather than my Digital Universe site. In order for me to add their login details then they need to use the "Contact Us" link at http://www.digitaluniverse.org.uk. Also any user unsure of their UID or wishing to change it to something else can also contact me as above.

Several Extra Large planetary feature maps will be available soon as a seperate file.

A list of the main bugfixes, new features etc. since version 1.6 can be found at
version 17 history

From above

"The web page will still state "Coming Soon - Digital Universe version 1.7" as I have still to prepare the ISO download for new users. Likewise the Ordering details will not be available until the standalone ISO is ready."

However, the download of the full version will be 17.50.

A physical CD is the same plus postage and packing.
UK 1.50
Europe 2.35
Rest of the World 3.50

@BillE,
With Firefox 17.0.1 on WinXP with a screen resolution of 1280x800 the Install Files
button it's not shown, so I had to look at the source to get the url for the download

@pvanni

I am trying now with Timerwolf which is a sort of Firefox, resolution 1280x1080 which is similar to yours. The buttons show fine.

Is it only the Install Files button you do not see or do you snot ee any buttons at the left side ?

I don't have a PC but did try it with Exploder the other day from work, the buttons were OK then too.


Brief pause.

Aha - it may be your resolution being very wide aspect ratio. The list of buttons does not scroll, so the bottom one may be missing. I will go and fix that now.

Very strange, I'm looking at your site and now there is a scroll bar
in the frame with the buttons, this morning the scroll bar was not there.

P.S. thanks for the update

@Sundown

I have PM'd you, so you can send me your details that way.

As your profile has no real name I can't check if I received your Contact Us details or not. I have had quite a few in the last couple of days and so far have (I believe) responded to every query.

PM me your details and I will get you sorted.

Thanks for the update.

I just downloaded it the other day and finally got to installed it and
give it a quick try last night, so far the AROS support looks like the killer new feature.


I cant wait to see what other people come up with the AROS support hopefully
people will share their scripts on OS4depot or other Amiga sites as they create them.

I think you mean Arexx support !

That had me puzzled at first as I doubt DU being an OS4 executable would not run on AROS.


I do hope to extend the Arexx support, there is a lot more that could be automated and no doubt more things that can be done by linking with other programmes' Arexx interface.

Yes, thats what I get for making post on Amiga world while I trying to get AROS working on my netbook.

Looks like I need to focus on doing one thing at a time.

Not that I would object to AROS being supported by DU but I am very happy running it under OS4 and its nice to have one or two OS4 only programs to give me a good reason/excuse to use my little sam44ep.
