I have a dll but no exe.I have sounds,m changelog, darkcontroler client32.dll read me, saarp32.dll speech.comf and that is it.
That probably means this is for 32 byte? I don't know but I downloaded it from the site.

If you see no exe file, it probably means its been eaten by your antivirus program.

I'd recommend making a folder an exception from scanning (I've got one called audiogames), then moving the zip file there from downloads and extracting and running the game from there.

If your using windows defender, you can make a folder an exception by  opening windows defender, going to "antivirus settings" and finding the "add exclusions" button. you will then have a list box to select either a file or folder to be excluded and then can brows for that folder.

what I particularly like with Windows defender, is that unlike many antiviruses it actually remembers when you create an exception even through updates, so it won't suddenly change its mind and eat up your games.

Well, will my antivirus snatch an exe out of a zip file though? And my other exe files are always there. How do I get it out of the antivirus! I am just using window essentuals in windows 10.
Thanks,

Hi

@254
I do think it will work almst the same, but don't worrie, as far as i know a anti virus program won't snatch an exe out of a zipped archive.

If the instructions from dark are to different from the way it should be done, then i will do a search via google to see if i can find detailed instructions.

Nope, windows defender at least doesn't touch exe files within zip archives until you extract them, even if it did it'd be easy enough to make your downloads folder an exception though I'd not recommend that just in case you downloaded something dodgy.

Hmmm, I am not sure what you mean by "windows essentials" exactly.
I thought Windows security essentials was the precurser to windows defender which came with windows 7 and 8, but the standard for windows 10 was windows defender which is known to haveproblems with some Bgt applications, though not if you create exceptions folders as I mentioned.

Hi

@dark
exactly on what i thought, as far as i knew microsoft security essencials was shipped with win 7 and 8, while windows defender is standard in win 10. But for making the downloads folder an exeption, i thought that was standard as well, as are some other folders which are excluded, but i can be mistaken onto this, cause i made a few exeptions in the past, and i could have mixed up things a little bit in my head ...

Hi

@imaginingstuff
I found this via google, it is actually rather simple, i must admit i forgot on how it should be done cause it is a longo time ago smile
But this are the steps to take to exclude a directory:
1. Open Windows Defender Security Center as described above.
2. Click on the Virus & threat protection icon.
3. Click on the link Virus & threat protection settings. ...
4. Scroll down to Exclusions and click on the link Add or remove exclusions.

When it says: "click the icon" it are just the words, for sighted users it are icons and when it says: "scroll down", just hit the tab button. I followed the steps and it did work smile

When any other help is required, please don't hesitate to ask, we will get you setup smile

Hi

@imaginingstuff

Thanks, you as well smile

@shane

I have checked the mails, but i haven't got a new order. Yesterday i did send a copy to someone in ireland, i won't paste mail addresses with the eye on privacy, but could you tell me if you're from ireland? Or send me your paypal address via pm?
It is possible emails from our nonvisiongames address can be bounced off. If this is is the case, i will send you the link via another address.

Hope to hear from you soon.

slight request for the future for sound effects and character creation:

when I made my last character for the game, I wanted the character to be female and named her accordingly. I know there was no option to say what gender you wanted, but forgot about one of the sound effects you had in the game. When you get hurt, you cry out in an obviously male voice. My request is that you ask what sex we want our characters to be, make some slight pronoun changes where needed to accommodate that in descriptions and dialog, and also provide alternate sound effects. If I want to be a female, I should make a female pained sound when I get hit.

Still a great game, just something I'd like to see.

Hi

appologies i wasn't around for quite some time, lot to deal with at the same time atm, but here i am again smile

@bookrage,

That honestly isn't a bad idea, i already was thinking vaguely to rewrite the character crecreation a little, cause right now there isn't a he or she idea, but more of an it, in my oppinion, but you're right about this, i can't promise it will be in the patch, but i think in beta 4 for sure smile

Thanks a lot!

Hi all,

again i wasn't around in this topic for some time. Still the stuff to deal with. That's why i wasn't able to build onto the patch. But this evening the building continued slightly. I finetuned the background mode some more. Cause some random events still were showing itself, while others didn't. In background mode you won't see any messages, till you decide to stop harvesting, or your energy reaches 0. Then you'll get a summary which tells you on what happened, and on what you harvested. It still need a few tweaks, and then i think that part would be ready for testing. But i still have to include the blackberries during summer as i promised and the blackberry cake.
I also informed my sound designer koma about the wish for female yelling sounds s well, in the case of the creation of a female character. When she provides the sound, character creation will be updated as well to reflect the wishes. Again, no guaranties it will be in beta 3.1.

Just know that we are still around, and upgrading, tweaking and expanding the project smile

Hi,

made some extra tweaks to the background mode. The zummaries of the gathered harvestables and event information were useless when nothing was gathered or did happen. This is now fixed. The messages of season switching won't be spoken anymore when background mode is enabled, but instead the second summary will show on how many seasons did pass and which season it is now.

Hope you'll like the new changes, which will be introduced asap. We have no date yet, cause we want to stresstest this new patch with our betagroup, to make sure that everything works as it should be.
