  • Updates & Current version info

    Firstly, and most important. When making any changes to the packs we absolutely recommend you make a backup copy of them first. This is especially important when making changes to your profile as you may lose customised commands.

    What the update notification is telling you and what you need to do:

    The Singularity profile needs an update to correct some issues or add new features. It will be updated as a full profile in the pack so you can download the whole pack and import the newest profile. But there will also (if possible) be a "patch" available to download here which can be simply added to your existing Singularity profile. Instructions of how to do this will be in the download.

    You will only get an update notification for plugins if there is an update which must be applied. There may be minor updates in between that you can apply if you wish but will not be absolutely necessary. Plugins will only ever be available in the pack itself so a full download of the pack will be required. If you have multiple packs then you will only need to download one of them to receive the latest plugin. Installation will be to use add/remove programs and uninstall the old plugin and then run the installPlugins.exe inside the downloaded zip to install them.

    If the update notification says your pack name, ie Astra,Alix,Orion etc then it means that a full pack update is required but usually just the sounds themselves. Extra info will be given below for each individual pack if needed. A full download of the pack will be required. The installation routine when updating sounds is to firstly uninstall them using add/remove programs. Then check your VoiceAttack\Sounds folder and make sure that the pack you are uninstalling has gone, if it hasn't then delete it (or rename it as a backup precaution so you can delete later once you are happy the update is ok). Run the installer and make sure that the path to your installation of VoiceAttack is shown in the path to where it is installing the sounds. Steam users in particular need to check and change this (see the manual).

    Hope that is clear enough for everyone but we welcome feedback of this new notification feature. Enjoy Singularity and all the new updates which we bring to you at no extra cost, as always

We are preparing a further patch to fix other minor issues which will also be made available here. v1.01 is not absolutely necessary so I'd recommend waiting for the new patch with other fixes in as well rather than doing it twice...depends if you can wait

    If you have not received an email that an update is available it is usually because your isp has blocked it or it has gone into your spam box. The link you were originally provided in any of our emails is a static link and never expires. The servers always provide you with the latest update. If you have lost the link then you will need to email with your purchase info and they will send you a new link.

    The download count is only there to stop the sharing of the links. You can download as many times as you wish, there is no restriction. If you run out of downloads then you can always email with your purchase info and they will reset it for you.

    Fly safe!
