I fully agree. Let's hope that Saabie will prioritize online play in his new runner.

I have received numerous emails in response to my game. All are some variation of

"I can't play your game because virus!"
or
"I can't figure out how to download the right runner for your game"
or
"Hey, how can I play this on Mac or Linux"

It is very troubling after many months of works on what is, I believe, the longest/largest game in the competition, or tied with Anno 1700, another ADRIFT game, for the longest/largest.

Things should have become easier now that the runner is available as a single file. (yes, the website needs a thorough cleaning up)
As for the virus warning, it only happens when you export your game as an .exe file. The runner will run just fine by itself.

Yes, Fabularium now supports V5 including blorbs with music and graphics.

Actually Fabularium doesn't like ADRIFT .Blorb files. Or at least the version I have V1.4.0 running on Android V7.0 :cry:

That's strange. I have also installed v1.4.0 and it plays blorbs just fine. Also, someone on intfiction mentioned that they ran the blorb of Anno 1700 in Fabularium without problems ( https://www.intfiction.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=26637 ).

Thanks Denk.
Well I checked all my settings for the umteenth time but couldn't see anything I could adjust.
So I uninstalled Fabularium and also removed its folder. Then reinstalled and reloaded my games including the .blorb ones and now they all work fine as expected. :? Crazy!
Let's hope it stays that way but I'll recheck after the next update of the APP.

Just found out that if you create a folder called .nomedia inside the Fabularium/ gamedata folder, it stops all the cover pics from showing in my Gallery. (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?)

There's a list of IFComp reviews at http://www.ifwiki.org/index.php/24th_An ... y_Reviewer

I see one for Anno 1700 but none for the others yet.

Thanks David. I've been looking for a list like that.
Trying to find a review of your game through the IntFiction.org is more than a pain in the butt.

Speaking of reviews, is there a common "template" the reviewers judgde by or is it kind everybody for themselves?
I've tried to see if there was some kind of thread as to how the various games are judged and it seems like there isn't a common scale.

I think it's just a case of judging however you see fit instead of any set template. At least, if there is a set template they're using, I'm not seeing what it is.
