The place to discuss the ADRIFT Interactive Fiction toolkit

Space Detective

A forum where new and old games can be reviewed - an alternative to the reviews on the Adventures page of the main ADRIFT site. Also the place to ask for any assistance if you are stuck playing a particular game.

I just downloaded Space Detective from the games and my PC reported that it contained a Trojan. Anyone else had this?

My antivirus reports that everything is a virus if it hasn't been used by several thousand people yet.
It particularly hates any games that are bundled into an EXE with the ADRIFT runner.
Even if I create my own EXE version of one of my own games the stupid antivirus immediately deletes it.
I looked inside one of the seven SpaceDetective.EXE files with a hex editor and it looks identical to a standard ADRIFT EXE.
