What happens if you reinstall ADRIFT?
Do they run under the runner?

What if you download a .taf from the site? Those won't open in generator either?

I'm getting this error as well now. Please could someone help? I've put quite a bit of time into this game. It seems like I had an older version 4 on my laptop, and now it only opens on the older version 4.

Thanks.

Rob.

If it helps, my error is different from the first one in this post, it says error opening adventure file - Check the file is not corrupt.

However it works in gargoyle and on my generator in the laptop.

I'm hopeing to enter the unreg competition with it, so I hope it can get sorted.

Thanks.

Rob.

Problem solved now. I re-installed the generator and rebooted.

Seemed to do the trick.
