Please Note: Even though we constantly publish new versions here, you only need to download this file the very first
time you register to Cosmic Supremacy. After that the game patches itself automatically every time you log into the server.

Installing and Playing without Administration Rights
During installation you will be given a warning if you do not have sufficient user rights.
In this case make sure you do install into a directory that you are allowed to access.
Attempting to install into the default folder 'C:\Program Files' will fail without sufficient user rights.
Please install into a different folder instead, like e.g. 'C:\Cosmic Supremacy'.
Cosmic Supremacy will attempt to register a file association and mime-type, that allows you to enter a galaxy with a single click.
However, this is not required to play the game. You can play Cosmic Supremacy even without that.
If the installation process went fine, you will see the following requester when you try to enter a galaxy:
We recommend to tick 'Do this automatically for files like this from now on' so that this requester will not pop up the next time
you try to enter a galaxy. Now click 'Open'. This should start the game-client.
If the installation partly failed, and the file association and mime-type were not registered, you will see the following requester:
In this case follow these steps to enter a galaxy:
Click 'Save' and preferably save it to the same location where Cosmic Supremacy is installed to.
Open a Windows Explorer and browse to the location where Cosmic Supremacy is installed to.
Drag the file 'GalaxyPass.csgalaxy' onto the 'Cosmic Supremacy.exe' and drop it.
Please note that the Galaxy-Pass is only valid for 3 minutes!
Playing Cosmic Supremacy without the Installer
We also offer a version of the client that does not require a installer.
Since the client only consist of one single .EXE file, all you need to do is unzip this file to a save location, and run the application once.
This will set up the required file-association and mime-type needed to open a Galaxy-Pass from within your browser.
Please note that this version comes without a convenient uninstaller. However, all you need to uninstall the client is to
delete the .EXE file and manually delete the file-association and mime-type (should that bother you).
By the way, a convenient method to recover from a failed patch/update attempt is to unzip this file right over the installed .EXE file,
which is usually located at 'C:\Program Files\Cosmic Supremacy'.
