Manual installation instructions for Open-IG
This page details the manual installation instructions for Open Imperium Galactica.
I strongly recommend using the Launcher application which will take care about all the file downloads and the proper startup parametrization of the game.
Installer (version 0.43)
1) Download the current upgrade pack and main game JAR file from the downloads page:
Note that the essential upgrade pack contains the ever changing game model and image resources. Without it, the game might not work and behave properly.
2) Download the game resource files (1.3 GB!):
Audio 1, Audio 2, Audio 3, Audio 4, Audio 5, Audio 6
3) Place all these files into the same directory
4) Run the game:
java -Xmx832M -jar open-ig-0.95.182.jar -memonce
javaw -Xmx832M -jar open-ig-0.95.182.jar -memonce
