Win 7 64 gets following error on opening attempt:

"Program will now exit.
Exception: is not a valid Win32 application. (Exception from HRESULT:
0x800700C1)
TargetSite : Void .ctor()

Both run as Admin as well as XP SP 2/3 compatibility mode produce the same exact issue.

This is the kind of game I've been waiting for... sadly I got this error (on Win XP SP3):

Could not create DirectX device
Program will now exit
Exception:

For what its worth, it works fine for me.

Vista (urgh).

But I do have VS C# 2008 installed.

Looks VERY promising!

What did you use for the sound btw? I'm on the lookout for a decent C# sound library (preferably one that is cross-platformable using Mono).

Hey Roguedjack, I'm getting the same problem as getter. Running Win 7 x64 here.

Your videos look great though, random road + city generation is hot. I look forward to playing it.

Win 7 64 gets following error on opening attempt:

"Program will now exit.
Exception: is not a valid Win32 application. (Exception from HRESULT:
0x800700C1)
TargetSite : Void .ctor()

It could via Mono.

Sorry for the bugs -that's alpha for you- and big thanks for the detailled error reports.
I will look into them asap, hopefully they are OS/.NET/DirectX common errors.
I hope I won't have to ship a bunch of stuff with the game (DirectX and whatnot).

What did you use for the sound btw? I'm on the lookout for a decent C# sound library (preferably one that is cross-platformable using Mono).

DirectSound so not portable at all  :(
DLL : C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\DirectX for Managed Code\1.0.2902.0\Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback.dll
Namespace: Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback
I just use it to load and play the MP3 with the Audio class.

---

As for compabitibilty with Mono I'm afraid not since I use DX.

New download, updated first post.
Changed compile options and made an installer.
This should fix the 64 bits bug and the DirectX bug by downloading the proper stuff.

Hey that worked! I was able to tool around the city a few times, getting punked by zombie masters. A few thoughts:

* oh god please let me close the game somehow without dying. Like, you know, alt-f4? Or clicking [X] :'(

* Running out of stamina mid fight seems kind of poor. I'm too tired to keep punching this zombie, but if I run around the table long enough I'll get my energy back?

* It's really neat to see the AI moving around and doing stuff with each other like trading.

* Hearing the sounds of violence in the distance is also a great touch.

* I think leveling up every sunrise is slick.

* Can I break up the tables and cabinets and stuff for barricade wood?

There's mountains of potential here, looking forward to more! Fun!

Great!

Shift-Q quits the game (see ingame help for the keys: H or at menu Help option).

Yes. Resting (Wait) also recovers stamina faster.
You have to manage the use of stamina and make choices, when to walk vs run, when to flee vs fight and what melee weapon to use.
I don't want the player to be a rambo but I understand it's very different from standard roguelike melee combat.

* Can I break up the tables and cabinets and stuff for barricade wood?
No, you get wood only from broken doors and windows; in a construction shop and from other people.
Breaking stuff for wood is good suggestion, I'll look into it.

Thanks for the feedback and glad it worked!

BTW spotted a silly crash bug in some item descriptions.
New download 0.1.0.1 fixes the bug.

I'm not sure yet.
Are you using a desktop or a laptop?
What is your screen resolution?
If a desktop, can you tell me what is your graphics card?
Oh also your directx version : launch the command "dxdiag" and tell me the version it shows.

I'm using a laptop, with a max resolution of 1280x800. The video card is ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 and my DirectX version is 9.0c.
