They're gettin' close!

Threw in some more dough and pushed them a little closer.

Now everybody who reads this better do the same or I'll ban you (not really (maybe)).

Does the modified system clock cause problems with the saved game file in subsequent gaming sessions?
Nope. At least, not for me. But I did change my clock back after registering and before launching the game.

I did mention this above a couple weeks ago, but I guess it looked like I was responding to a current poat, not a much older one.

Sorry, missed that!

At least there’s a quick and dirty guide in the thread now. :)

FYI if you can find any of your old e-mails from Ambrosia with your serial numbers, you can still use them. I had an urge to play EV Nova again the other day and it's unplayable on the Mac now, so I finally went and got the PC port which still works great (if you make use of a couple third party mods to bump the resolution up on both the game and the galaxy map). Found out via the Escape Velocity subreddit that if you know the date and time when you got a code e-mail from Ambrosia, then you use the following steps to successfully register a product:
  • Disconnect from the internet
  • Install your Ambrosia software fresh
  • Do not launch it yet
  • Change your Mac or PC date and time to the date and time you received the e-mail from Ambrosia
  • Launch the registration software and input your code and it will accept it!
  • Reconnect everything
Did that with EV Nova on Windows using my old Mac key requested from Ambrosia in 2016 and it worked like a charm, so I'm assuming it should work with anything else Ambrosia.

I had so been looking forward to this after loving the StarCraft remaster.

Oh man...
