no exe file

Postby djconklin » Sun Jun 30, 2019 12:09 am

I just downloaded two copies of the game and I don't see an exe program. I needed that to show you a problem I am having.

Also, the two download have a file folder for the ai that mine does not have! I wanted to edit the ai. I set the game at 5,100+ by 5,100+ and I get AI neighbors right off the bat!

Which package you downloaded (link)? My guess is that you downloaded a source code (the editable files from which the executable binaries are built) archive instead of installer of the built binaries.

Hadn't thought of that! I'll check.
