Thanks Wuzzy for all your hard work and time you've put into this release candidate.

Have a


For everybody testing: Enjoy and make sure to report bugs or questions as you find them.

VCRUNTIME140_1.dll not found.

Yay, the time has come Big Grin
Glad the 1.0 release is here, and I'll get to playtesting as soon as I can!

Uh oh, ran into the same problem as Plarf. A certain VCRUNTIME140_1.dll is missing. Tried reinstalling, but it still wasn't there.

Windows users: It has brought to my attention that you're missing the VC runtime. You can download it here:

Please reply if this works or does not work for you.

Sorry. Sad Smiley


NOTE: This version is NOT the true version 1.0.0, but version 1.0.0 Release Candidate 1. This means it's not official yet. It's another test release. But if all goes well, there will be no real difference to the “true” release, which we expect to happen on October 7, unless something bad happens.

For version 1.0.0, we'll include a proper installer for Windows.

Installed it, restarted.

It's OK now, I can start RC.

It works like a charm! Thanks, Wuzzy Big Grin

(well, no real difference except for possibly a protocol number bump Smile )

I bring this up just as an addendum to Wuzzy's comment in case someone assumes release candidates and final releases should be interoperable online.

This is a helpful post.
