    Smile The Traveller's Guide

    I talked with Mom (mossy), and she said I could start this thread here -- so my apologies if I started it in the wrong place.


    Having taken many years to do it, I made a video game called The Traveller's Guide. Last week I finished it and got it up online, and the entire thing is free for anyone interested to download and play.

    Thanks to my long time friend Inkhana for most of the game's graphics; I wouldn't have it done without her help. (And of course, thanks and praise to the Lord for giving us both the talents and tools to make it. ^_^ )

    Hmm, now that I think about it, would this thread have been better posted in Computer Lab? Or somewhere else? Or is it okay where it is?

    If it is in the wrong place somebody will whine and ask to have it moved.

    No worries.

    I meant to play this earlier, but I did notice this when I went to download the game. Chrome flags it as 'untrustworthy" the reason? It's not been downloaded enough times.

    ETA: Argh, it says "not a valid Win32 application" when I try to run it. I meet the requirements, so I don't know what's wrong. I used primary mirror, and I used the first download option.

    Man, I know that some more recent operating systems (like Windows 8) and browsers (like Internet Explorer) don't like the installer executable; I've seen that myself. I'm glad that at least you were able to download it, though; that's good. I'm totally baffled as to why you can't get the installer to run, though. Which version of Windows do you use? If you use Vista, 7 or 8 (or 10 Technical Preview), did you try running it as an administrator?

    I'll try to help you get the game installed and running, even if I have to make a "manual install" zip file on my end. But I'm glad you're interested in trying it, anyway.

    I use Vista, and I downloaded it with Chrome. Looks like 1 part of the problem is that Norton 360 quarantined it. I'll have to get it back out before I try again.

    Hmm, I see. I often don't think about the possibility of the presence of an antimalware program, though I do mention on the download site that if it gives trouble it should be temporarily disabled before downloading and running the game installer.

    Perhaps, like I said in my post above, I should consider packing the game into a zip file in such a way that'll let the player manually install the game, with a text file containing instructions on how to do it -- just in case anyone else has trouble.

    If you're still having trouble with the installer executable, hang in there a bit until I have a chance to get that done and I'll post here again once it is.

    There's now a manual install package (complete with instructions) available for download from the site, in the event the automatic installer fails. Hopefully that will help you guys that have been having trouble with the latter. ^_^ If anyone still has trouble with it, please let me know.

    (And my apologies for double-posting.)
