Star Citizen - Alter Version Number


  • Community Moderator

    Star Citizen is detected correctly on my system, but the displayed version number should be altered.
    In the application the displayed version number is 3.3.6.
    In VulnDetect the displayed version number is 3.3.15.15132.
    So you should show the same version number that is shown in the app.

    Tell me if you need a screen shot of the Help -> About window.


    Here the information extracted from the EXE file:

    File name and path:     E:\StarCitizen\StarCitizen\LIVE\Bin64\StarCitizen.exe
    Product Name:           Star Citizen
    Internal Name:          
    Original Filename:      
    
    File Description:

    @Tom The officially version number displayed in the Star Citizen Launcher is Star Citizen Alpha 3.4.1
    Details see here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link//16920-Star-Citizen-Alpha-341
    So please call the product Star Citizen and set the version number to Alpha 3.4.1

    @OLLI_S I added the Pre-release flag, but I have to now way to get the version or Alpha reliably. I could change the product name to Star Citizen (Alpha), but I know you aren't a fan of that, and it will be incorrect once they release something non-alpha.

    @Tom said in Star Citizen - Alter Version Number:

    Alpha has been added.

    I still see this:

    • App Star Citizen
    • Version 3.4.15.46775

    There is no "Alpha" shown, also not the Prerelease label.

    @OLLI_S Alpha has been added.
    With regards to version, then I am not aware of any way to extract the version number from the UI. Until we learn of a way to reliably get this information, we will stick to the version info from the executable.

    Star Citizen is an Alpha software (so you should flag it like this).
    The current version is 3.4.1, see also here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link//16920-Star-Citizen-Alpha-341

    Here is the version information from the current EXE:

    File name and path:     E:\StarCitizen\StarCitizen\LIVE\Bin64\StarCitizen.exe
    Product Name:           Star Citizen
    Internal Name:          
    Original Filename:      
    
    File Description:

    I just checked the registry, there is no useful information for Star Citizen. So maintaining correct version numbers for Star Citizen will require manual reporting by you for now.

    I will wait with updating the version number and await the next release of Star Citizen. SP please do update this post when a new version is released so we can see what relation there is between the file and the UI.
