Install/uninstall works fine but got a crash as soon as I start the game.
The usual win crash report:

EventType : clr20r3     P1 : dungeonmans.exe     P2 : 0.2.0.0     P3 : 4be88452
P4 : mscorlib     P5 : 2.0.0.0     P6 : 4a7cd8f7     P7 : c42     P8 : 59     
P9 : system.formatexception     


My config:
WinXP SP 3, 32bits.
.NET 3.5 SP1.
XNA 3.1 already installed.

UPDATE:
Forgot to mention my OS in a non-US culture, the system.formatexception might have to do with C# parsing floats in my OS culture while trying to read English floats.
(Eg "1,00" vs "1.00")
This is a common problem for .NET programs running in different languages.
In my program I force the culture to Invariant.
Code: [Select]
            Application.CurrentCulture = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;  // avoids nasty "," vs "." format confusion.

Hope this helps.

.1!

* Better data collection for magic attacks and special power use.

* Bandit Pyromancer and Brigand Foominologist made slightly less deadly.

* Starlight Golem, Elemental Hydra and Teacup Cultist made stronger.

* Yesterday's Knife and Leafy Ranger Stick have been buffed oh-so-slightly, so you don't end up doing -2 damage to Puppy Molds and feeling terrible about yourself.

* Added a no-installer version of the game to the downloads page.

* SIX NEW HERO SPRITES TO CHOOSE FROM
