Nexus - Update Beta Branch

To access the beta please do the following:
Follow this guide

There is no password needed
The branch for Step 6 is named community

What we did:
-) Added German and Russian localization files (including audio)
-) Added DX9 runtime install
-) Improved the install script so that language changing and run as admin works
-) Extracted all the data from the nexus_00.dap and nexus_00.dat (more mod friendly)
-) Failed to find Steam should be gone.

We would like to do even more but unfortunately the source code seems lost and without that much more isnt really possible I am afraid.
Please let me know if you see any issues with this update.

sur un windows 64bits, allez dans la base de registre en: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mithis\Nexus - The Jupiter Incident
et mettre "Misc_Language"=dword:00000003
vous devriez avoir les textes en français

si vous avez des résolutions un peu exotique, toujours au même emplacement de la base de registre, modifier

il s'agit de valeur en hexadecimal
ici 780 hexa = 1920
4b0 hexa = 1200
soit la résolution de 1920*1200

par exemple une résolution de 3440*1440
ça donnerait

I came across Nexus - The Jupiter Incident while searching for a game that would give me the feeling of commanding a capital ship in space battles that I used to enjoy in Star Trek Online before that game became the treadmill grinder it is today. I can honestly say that this game nails capital ship combat, far better than any game I have played before.

Ship maneuvering feels solid. It feels like you are actually commanding a ship with mass, and not something like a fighter. Don't expect to be moving fast or nimbly. A great touch is the fact the game designers put a lot of though in the design of the ships, putting breaking engines in front as well as smaller engines around the ships that fire when the ship is adjusting course or holding position. It's nice to see a game where ships actually follow the laws of physics and don't just stop like someone pressed on the brake.

Because of the pace of the ships, this game is a lot more focused on tactics than other strategy games. You have to really pay attention to your mission onjectives and thus ship loadouts, as picking the wrong setup can lead to mission failure easily. There is a learning curve due to the level of complexity in targeting and ship management, but it is not intimidating.

A bonus with this game is that is moddable, so if you wish you can command a Battlestar or even one of the destroyers from Babylon 5. I would recommend playing the vanilla game through first before trying out the mods.

If you are really into tactical strategy games involving capital ships, you can't go wrong picking this title up. Casual fans of RTS games may want to wait until it is on sale though because the learning curve may frustrate some.

Classic game with a classic challenge, not like many of the modenr command and control sims coming out where you simply need to have the biggest gun. Here you need to have the right gun for the right job and make sure you fit it first. you also need strategy, what worked last time may not this time
is a great gam, the story i personally find a little slow, but the gameplay is amazing.
I spent ages trying to remember the name of this game after having played an old pc demo cd beck when i was a kid and couldnt afford it. suprised it wasnt abandonware, but regardless was worth every cent.

A rollicking good 25 hour space opera. The tactical battles are difficult but fun and upgrading your ships with new goodies is gratifying. It's even fun to hate Admiral Norbank, who has got to be one of the biggest asses ever put into a video game. There are a lot of tools available for modding the game but precious little has been done with them... not sure why. I got the game for $2.49, figuring for that price I could hardly go wrong. I was completely surprised at what I got and I can't figure out how I managed to miss this gem. Even if it isn't on sale it's worth every penny. If you like Sins of a Solar Empire or Homeworld then I can't imagine how you wouldn't like Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. Oh... and the Angelwing is simply an awesome craft that you can hardly help getting attached to.

I've seen a lot of bad reviews lately complaining that the game wouldn't run or that it crashed a lot. I'm not sure what their issue is but I can say that Nexus ran fine under Windows 7 and I never crashed once while playing. The game does lose some key bindings if you alt-tab out and it doesn't have any Steam integration, so you can't use shift-tab to access messages and whatnot. I also had to create my own desktop shortcut as the game wouldn't run via the Steam generated desktop shortcut. This has been fixed, however. The in-game videos also ran choppy from time to time, which was odd. Considering the game is 11 years old and nobody is supporting it anymore, I classify these issues as negligible.

Hint: If you want to win, read the manual. There are lots of nuances to successful navigation and using all your weapons and systems that you won't get from the in-game advice popups. :)

i have not played through the game, but i figured id be a while anyway so i may as well put up an initial rewiew. i like it so far although it doesnt interact too well with windows 10. i would definitely love to see an HD reboot to make the game work and look better. not to mention the possibility of drumming up a crowd and some buzz for a sequel.
