So, I installed the game and it was working fine except it would freeze up every 15-20 minutes, requiring me to kill the process in task manager as others have reported. So I thought I'd update all my drivers and reinstall the game. However, after the cutscene installer finished, the main installer froze up and I had to kill that process too. Now the game is all fucked up and won't even launch, and I can't uninstall it because it never created the uninstall.exe. I tried going through windows to uninstall it, but windows just says "cannot find uninstaller." So I tried deleting the game folder and removing any instance of "gruntmods" from my registry manually (there was only one), but when I try to reinstall it, the installer tells me to uninstall it first. What do I do? I just want to uninstall this so I can reinstall it and hopefully get it running again.
Thanks all, the funny thing, in practice (today) i still work on the dune2themaker4j repo. Probably will do that for the first months, so when my first version is ready. Probably d2tm is also a lot more complete! 2 birds with one stone ;-)
Yup saw the tweet the other day and have been meaning to applaud the decision! I have been endeavoring towards a similar goal, but thankfully in another genre so there will be no competition between us I will be following your progress closely!
General notice, in case you have missed it.
I have publicly announced I am working on my own RTS, starting this week for real.
This means, I have reversed the order of things. I continue building on dune2themaker4j (the engine), but I will focus on making my own commercial game. However, I do use dune 2 as a means (a template/graphics stub, etc). So expect, especially in the beginning, to see a lot of 'dune 2' progress.
I have sat down with my family and acquired some time for my own to chase my dream of writing my own games and try to make a living out of it.
My most recent blog post talks about how I intent to make a minimum playable game, and how I think it will be feasible to get it done around november.
I will communicate about its progress pro-actively, with a minimum of 1 blog per 2 weeks about its progress. I also share all struggles I encounter, from graphics, sounds, marketing, publishing, etc.
If you want to support me during this, you can do that via various ways. From talking to your friends about this, liking stuff, etc. You can also support me on Patreon.
If you have any questions, just reply to this thread, or on patreon, or twitter, or anything else you can reach out to me!
