? Are you referring to windows defender (Microsoft’s own anti virus).

Code: Select all

I tried to download both 32 and 64-bit versions but I can't install them because apparently Windows 10 Smart screen thinks that they are harmful and stops executing them.
Windows SmartScreen is a system in Windows that checks with a database of known applications maintained by Microsoft to verify that the application is a valid copy of a known application.

It's a common problem that SmartScreen will attempt to block applications that aren't well known or frequently downloaded, and that includes my Fractalus remake. I think you should be able to click a link that says "More Info" on the dialog, and then click "Run Anyway", and it should run.

This is so awesome! RoF was my absolute favorite game on my old Atari 800XL, and when I switched to the Amiga in 1989, I was desperately waiting for a Remake.
And THIS remake, dear Luke, is the absolute God-Tier of remakes. Thank You so much.
The only little thing I was not so happy about were the Jaggies. Somehow I hoped they would be a lot scarier.
But besides this minor complain: THIS IS SOOO GOOD!
Next one: Koroni´s Rift? The Eidolon? Or maybe...(shaking)...Star Raiders 2? :)

I know, i am a bit late to the party, but after playing the original on an emulator and some googling around RoF i just discovered this gem. And there is a Linux-version, too! Really well done. Thanks a lot.
