    sooo..
    I uninstalled my mods like it asked, but now whenever I load up PAT, I get permanently stuck with this: 20160503180801_1.jpg
    it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    If you've still got PAMM, make sure everything is disabled, especially "PAX Prime 2015 Demo Mode"

    If not, delete C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Local/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/client_mods/mods.json

    Or even all of client_mods in the likely case there is nothing you want there.

    PTE servers will be unavailable until we go stable.

    You can play on stable servers using the PTE build by changing version.txt to 89755 in your PA installation.
