Game is NOT for windows XP users? Where does it says that?

Post by panthir » Sat Dec 20, 2014 6:56 pm

I just gave $30 to buy this game. As soon as I unziped it, I opened the SCG-2014.12.18-Alpha1-PC and Science-PC-11-4-KS
files to find the setup for the game. But I only got the the app is a valid win32 application message. :x
As far as I know there is no system requirements to say that the game is not running in win XP systems. :evil:
So it is not working. :(
So, do I get my $30 back? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Please understand that the game is not yet fully developed and there will be a few issues while they are trying to get everything glued together. Assuming an alpha will be fully operational and compatible is not a very wise idea when making any purchase.

But to do my best to answer your question with other responses from users in the forums the issue can stem from a variety of variables.
  • -Microsoft no longer supports Win XP so software updates are no longer viable for downgrading newer programs to be compatible.
    -The game could be locked in a 64bit OS if you are using a 32bit system.
    -The game may require framework from the currently used operating systems to compile properly.
Possible solutions to this issue:
  • -Upgrade your operating system to win 7 or 8
    -Wait to hear from the developers on their intentions for compatibility for Win XP
Please in the future search the forums for the proper topic in case someone has already answered your question.

I believe its the 32bit operating system causing this error. They should be updating the Alpha to fix this

We will investigate this. I will ask the devs on Monday if we somehow limited our build to 64-bit only users. I can't imagine that the game wont run on XP - just a big - apologies - i know how frustrating it can be to be an alpha person. We're on it.

justincoombs21, thank you for your reply. I hope you find a solution soon because I really like the game and I wanted to support your project. I'm waiting for any news about the subject.
Be well.
