About This File

This is patch v1.03. for the game Pariah.

 

This is the official patch released by Digital Extremes back in June of 2005. Other Patch versions are not required to install this one, all you have to do is open the zip with 7zip or Winrar and run the .exe.

 

I did not create this patch. All credit goes to Groove games and Digital Extremes.


What's New in Version v1.03

Released

  • + The game would crash with a message containing:
  • Assertion failed: playerControllers.Num() == 1 [File:UnGame.cpp] [Line: 4135]
  • when resuming a saved game in which the player died before the game was saved. After this patch is applied, a save game in which the player has died is ignored and the player restarts at the beginning of the level in which the player died along with the player's weapon loadout at the time of death. Also Pariah will no longer save a game in which the player is dead.
  • + On systems containing graphics adapters that don't support pixel shaders, the game would crash with a message containing:
  • Vision PS failed to build
  • when the sniper rifle enhanced vision mode is selected. The game will no longer crash however it should be noted that the enhanced vision mode won't be available on such systems.
  • + Sometimes the game would crash with a message containing:
  • Cast of NULL to Package failed
  • These cases are now detected and the game will attempt to deal with them without crashing.
  • + Fixed a crash that sometimes occurred when pressing the Apply button in some of the settings menus. The crash dialog would contain something like:
  • MenuSettingsPerformance SP-Chapter_01.MenuSettingsPerformance13 (Function XInterfaceSettings.MenuSettingsPerformance.OnAButton:0009) Assertion failed, line 135
  • MenuSettingsAudio SP-Chapter_03.MenuSettingsAudio0 (Function XInterfaceSettings.MenuSettingsAudio.OnAButton:0009) Assertion failed, line 195
  • + compression/decompression of user-built maps using the UCC.exe application was broken --- it has been fixed
  • + the ability to redirect downloads of user-built maps and packages to a web site was broken --- it has been fixed
  • + added web based server administration interface. To enable the web based server admin interface, you need to edit the Pariah.ini file (using notepad.exe for example) and find the section called [UWeb.WebServer]. Change bEnabled=False to bEnabled= True. If you are already running a web server on your machine that listens on the standard http port (80), you will need to change ListenPort= 80 to a different port. Now once you have a server running on your machine, you can access the web server admin interface by pointing your web browser at http://[machine name or ip]:[listen port]/ServerAdmin. If it's working it will ask you to login...the login name is ignored and the password needs to be the Admin Password specified in the Admin Settings when hosting the server. The Admin Password needs to be non-empty.
  • + added UCC-server.exe application. This is a version of UCC.exe that only understands the server, compress and decompress arguments. It does not require that the Pariah CD1 disk be inserted for it to run. UCC-server.exe can be used to start dedicated servers.
  • + Fixed various Save Game related crashes. The various crashes that were fixed contained one of these messages in the crash dialog:
  • Assertion failed: fileName.Len() [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 2253]
  • Assertion failed: saveName.Len() [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 2090]
  • Assertion failed: false [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 966]
  • Assertion failed: false [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 1625]
  • Assertion failed: false [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 975]
  • Assertion failed: *outObject [File:ULoadSaveManager.cpp] [Line: 2148]
  • + joysticks connected to a player's computer could cause control problems when playing Pariah -- this has been fixed
  • + some improvements have been made in vehicle networking during multiplayer matches
  • + the setup program now does validity checks on as many files in the Pariah install folder as possible. This will detect incorrectly installed files caused by a bad CD or CD reader and inform the user which files are invalid or missing. The user can then contact support to determine how to get correct versions of these files.
  • + Pariah will now contact the Pariah master server when you select Internet play from the Multiplayer menu. It will check for things like a message of the day and whether there are any optional or mandatory upgrades available for Pariah. If there is an upgrade available, an Upgrade button will appear which, if pressed, exit Pariah and launch the Setup application which will download and install the upgrade.

      We are proud to announce that PCGamingWiki is launching a new microtransactions section in all of our PC game articles.    Many PC gamers don't have a clue about what they are getting into before they install the latest 'free-to-play' game, 'game as a service' multiplayer shooter or new 'live service' singleplayer game. These games could contain manipulative loot boxes, hopelessly unfair grinds or game imbalancing pay-to-win unlocks.    At PCGamingWiki, we want to provide absolutely clear information as to how each game is monetized and what microtransaction techniques are being employed. We want people to know whether the game includes solid DLC or expansion packs that deliver solid content post-release, or whether their game features real money gambling mechanics, or keeps their best content behind paywalls or premium subscriptions.  
      Microtransaction categories and definitions
      Central to our project is the definition of each microtransaction category. We have got in contact with the creators of Microtransaction.Zone (a fantastic website which has sadly not updated since 2018) and they have kindly given some advice to adapt their microtransaction tags to our new categories on PCGamingWiki.    These new Microtransaction categories are: Loot box - A variation of microtransaction where the player purchases a loot box where there is a chance to receive varying qualities of in-game item, similar to gambling. Cosmetic - Cosmetic microtransactions are any paid additional content that are designed to be cosmetic and does not substantially affect gameplay, such as skins, hats, decorative items etc. Unlock - Purchase of microtransaction content that affects gameplay and is not solely cosmetic. 'Unlocks' are normally chunks of a game that have been already developed and have been 'locked', and can be 'unlocked' with a purchase. This commonly includes individual characters, maps, levels, weapons, armors, etc. Boost - Allows player to pay to accelerate progress in a game, whether it is faster speed, levelling, level skipping, boosting % chance to find rare items, etc. Currency - Being able to purchase in-game currency whether it's gold, gems, tokens, crafting materials, credits, V-Bucks, etc. which in turn are used to buy other microtransactions, or can be traded for account credit. Infinite cap - Game has microtransactions that can be purchased over and over again without any limit. This is in contrast to finite cap games that have a limit. Pay-to-skip - The game's 'main' rewards can be achieved or grinded for without payment, but payment unlocks those rewards faster or instantaneously.   This list is a first draft and we welcome feedback on definitions on how these will be implemented.   We have also added the following Monetization categories: Ad-supported DLC Expansion pack Freeware Free-to-play Player trading Subscription     New categories will appear in the Infobox   Microtransaction/monetization categorisation is part of the Taxonomy project. Editors can simply add the tags by adding this code to the {{Infobox_game}} template at the top of the game article using this code: |taxonomy = {{Infobox game/row/taxonomy/monetization | ad-supported, dlc, expansion pack, freeware, free-to-play, player trading, subscription | ref= }} {{Infobox game/row/taxonomy/microtransactions | boost, cosmetic, currency, finite cap, infinite cap, loot box, pay-to-skip, unlock | ref= }} You can find up to date code and definitions on the Taxonomy project page, with detailed instructions on how to implement the new categories.
      You might notice that at the moment these categories barely contain any games. We need new editors and help from the PC gaming community to help us to sort and categorise each game article. You don't need an account to edit, but if you create an account and login, you can browse and edit our website without any ads.
       
      Microtransaction section We have also added a new text area under the Availability to precisely list and explain how each microtransaction affects the game. This valuable area will explain exactly how each game uses microtransactions and provides an opportunity to warn players of any particularly problematic microtransactions.     Example of new Microtransactions header in game Apex Legends   See these examples which represent a first draft: Apex Legends Destiny 2 World of Warcraft A new set of instructions is listed in the Editing_guide/Microtransactions, which contains a detailed guide. Each bullet point should match the Infobox category. The code for this area and also reproduced here:
      ===Microtransactions=== *'''[[Currency (microtransaction)|Currency]]''': Begin with this row to explain how real money is directly exchange for in-game currency, and also how it is earned in-game. Try not to mention other currencies unless necessary. *'''[[Loot box (microtransaction)|Loot box]]''': What drops from the loot box *'''[[Cosmetic (microtransaction)]Cosmetic]''': *'''[[Unlock (microtransaction)|Unlock]]''': *'''[[Boost (microtransaction)|Boost]]''': *'''[[Pay-to-skip (microtransaction)|Pay-to-skip]]''': Emphaisize that despite Boosts existing, all important content can be acquired through grinding on the base subscription/free tier. *'''[[Infinite cap (microtransaction)|Infinite cap]]''' / *'''[[Finite cap (microtransaction)|Finite cap]]''':  
      We need editors
      Our project is quite ambitious and we are making new changes that needs more manpower, and we are looking for new editors to help categorise all these microtransactions and help our fellow PC gamers. Furthermore, this is a brand new section and we are really looking for feedback on the categories, names, definitions, suggesting new categories, layout and more!
      If you have a suggestion please leave a comment on this post, or hop onto our Discord onto the #projects channel for more immediate feedback. Let's fix PC gaming!

      After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.
      The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.
      Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform. 
      Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.

      For some time we have been developing a new PCGW Account Single Sign-on (SSO) system makes use of Keycloak and allows a single account to login to Wiki (MediaWiki), Communty (IP Board) and our Sidewikis. For many months users could choose to login using the PCGW Account or the native logins for the Wiki and Community sites. You will now notice that the PCGW Account is the only way to login as we have now disabled the native logins.
        The PCGW Account was expertly put together by our server administrator Snuxoll, and all credit goes to him for suggesting and executing this new system. It finally puts to rest the rather poor system 'SSO' system we previously used 2012-2018 which caused us ever increasing issues as time went on.   Here are some more details: FAQ can be found here. New Account Management links on the Wiki sidebar and the Community navigation tab. New ticketing system in place - if you need account support please email help@pcgamingwiki.com. Alternatively join us on our Discord server and ask for help in the #support channel.

      This is a modified exe for Toy Story that fixes the "Unable to link to KERNEL32.DLL!" error on newer versions of Windows.
      This was not made by me.
