I like how anyone can contribute. It is similar to STW, RS, and Road to Rage, but we really need to add three-D elements so we can create complex maps, like the ones in STW.
Anyhow, did running as administrator fix the problem with your inability to open the game?

I think, that yes.
I have those problems mainly in Windows 10.

Also, voice chat works or no, because I think, that voice chat doesn't work.

@orko:

This is why I am enjoying Shadow line so much, it's just one of the best audio games ever released, seriously!
I spend like 80 hour on it and I still have a lot to do there. smile

To run the game as administrator, go to the executable file of the game like normal, but instead of pressing enter, press your applications key and choose run as administrator. If you don't have an applications key on your computer, then shift+f10 will work just the same.

For some reason I can't play this game because my antivirus (Microsoft Security Essentials) thinks it is a virus. It did the same to desafio mortal a few weeks ago, deleting both of those games. My friend has a problem too, he is trying to download the game and it doesn't work, even tried sharing it to him via a dropbox saved folder, and it doesn't work as well. He is using Avast and it also deletes that file.

Then, make your antivirus programs allow the files. Configure them to never delete files, but ask you what to do instead.

Thumbs up

I don't think microsoft security essentials can be configured like that...

Windows defender will not let me run your game. It keeps deleting the sounds.dat file and the exe. I am not sure what to do. I tryed disableing windows defender but it keeps doing the same thing.

As I mentioned above, you need to allow the files in your antivirus. Yes, this is indeed possible. I don't know if you can configure it to ask what to do before deleting the files. This is the reason for I've turned it off on my system.
If you don't wanna mess with that, an other antivirus which don't mess with your files is the way to go. Otherwise, you'll never get rid of this issue.

Hi.
[wow]. So I just updated my game to see if it was still running. I'm surprised by all the new things and all the new maps in the game. It's sad that the new updates aren't being announced in this topic. I'll recommend people to check this out...

Thumbs up

How do I get the game?
The link seems to be down right now.

Thumbs up

Also, server is down too.
We must wayt to Mason, or NS for explanation.
But, this idea to create own world was very excellent. I hope, that this project won't be death.

OK, guys. I am here with less than good information. I regret to inform you that while I was away at camp for 8 weeks, some unfortunate events happened.

So, we have a problem folks. Due to the stupidity of both my hosting company and myself, I have lost all of the SBYW maps, characters, and server data. It is my fault because I didn't back it up. It is their fault because the hard drive in their server was going bad, and they wanted us to pay for it even though they said it would be free if anything went wrong. This is shit.

I have also lost my website content as well.

So. I don't know what I should do. I can either try to get it back up and running, with nothing, or ... Just leave it down. You guys can choose.

I would say keep it up man. I have always loved your games, so why not start over again. Besides, I heard you were going to add 3d sounds to it and add real time reverb in to map creation?

Thumbs up

Don't you think that would be kind of hard in BGT? big_smile

Will certainly try to get the server back up.

Thumbs up

lol I just wish you could implement 2d map, like on stw.
well the title is scrolling though so yeah.

Thumbs up

My problem is, though, this.

This game was open for 5 months, give or take. In that time, we've had so many players working on so many maps. To see all that go to waste is ... Really unbelievable and sick. I'm not happy, and I don't feel like it'd be fair to bring back the game after that. It just doesn't quite feel right.

Thumbs up

Hi Mason.
I know you are not happy, but we like your game and we want to continue it.
And I am sure, all players will rebuild a part of the maps and other new ones.

Thumbs up

I don't think you realize how many maps were lost. 600+ maps.

Thumbs up

Hi guise, I have tried to  download the game, but it just says that the link is broken. Can someone give me the active link?
Kind regards,
Aleksandar

I know that Mason, but we like to build worlds.
It is fun and interesting.

Thumbs up +1

Even if you were able to dl it right now, it wouldn't work.

Thumbs up

Mason, I am sorry, I'll agree with angel. It was good idea and I have built also some worlds too and play another worlds too. I don't know, what was problem?
