Hello,

I just downloaded the hotfix #6. Windows defender recognizes it as a threat and doesn't save the downloaded file.

I'm sure it is a false positive. But perhaps something to look at.

Best regards,

Hapshott

I've seen this comment before. I have 64-bit Win10 and use the Windows File Explorer to zip the file. Windows Defender should be fine with this, unless perhaps you are using an older version of Windows or 32-bit Win10. I don't know?

I can only assure you that nothing malicious is intended and might suggest you and others manually scan the file, perhaps with an alternative malware/anti-virus program, to verify all is well. To date, other than the Windows Defender warning, I have not received any complaints about the file itself. The code bugs, well, that's a different story...

Hello Pzgndr,

I'm sure that there is no threat in it. I just wanted to indicate this before you make the official patch. I'm not 100% sure, but I think a lot of people are using the default windows 10 settings and it's virusscanner.

Sometimes I have the feeling that a virusscanner is also a virus. It makes everything slower and blocks ot throws away files which it has seen as a false positive.

Thanks for all the patches and effort. Esp. the AI. I only play against the AI as I cannot commit me for a long online play session

Best regards,

Hapshott
