0 comments by jbjblaze on Dec 3rd, 2013

As of today (which means the update blog was started Dec 13, 2012), the site where you can keep caught up on the changes throughout AfterMath's development (which currently has been unfortunately slow) to date!
You can find the blog at!

As for other news on the development, I have decided to change around the command system as to allow for commands like 'take ', 'move ', etc., except for it'll be 'take', and then a prompt of what to take, and then the item. Or the other way around (i.e. item, then do what to it?).

Thanks for the support, and in case we don't wish it upon y'all yet, happy holidays!

Download Microsoft Security Essentials and scan it. There are absolutely NO viruses or Trojans whatsoever in the AfterMath.exe.

You're kidding right?

Look at some of the tests showing detection rates for it. It's about as bad as it gets.

For example, the last Av-Comparatives file detection test using close to 300,000 samples collected from recent months placed MSE dead last out of all products tested (it detected the least number of samples):

review via: all credit due there.

Know your numbers.

Well according to my scan there is, weather its a false postive or not is up to that particular company to inform people of. And in reguards to MSE scanning it clean, there are a great deal of Actual viri out there that are COMPLETTLY undetected by specific means of scanning, so running a program though one that shows its clean doesnt actually make it clean, nor does it make it dirty by posting details like above. It simply informs people that there could be an issue and to be cautious.

Aftermath.exe is a file from a virus, but the game has the sad problem that it has named it's exe as aftermath.exe, let me tell you this. Do you REALY think that desura would let a virus on it's service, it's almost like your saying that desura spreads virusses through it's games. think about it do you think desura wouldn't have checked for these kind of things. you sir are just being retarded believeing anything you see that pops up on your screen, you sir don't know any logic because you would have immediatly dismissed that warning if you had thought that something like desura DOESN'T spread virusses.

Honestly, what I REALLY am and will never be unconvinced of is that the game is virus-free, and that these antiviruses are either doing it wrong, or you trolls whom keep telling different are just full of crap. (i.e. open the .exe, and play the game, THEN tell me it's a virus!)

Instead of getting as upset as you seem in regards to this. You might want to look into your code and find out what particular file or system resource it may be accessing that makes it appear as a virus. It is apparent that multiple AV programs will trigger this alert and I believe you when you say it isn't one. I've actually run across other games indie that set off the alert, but if you want to look reputable and have a larger audience you need to account for these situations and fix the issue. Instead of telling them to use a different AV application, why don't you install one of these AV applications and test your program against it to determine the cause and solve the problem. It's the far more professional approach.

THere is no code, it's batch written so it's just 16bit cmd prompt printing and script. That's why it flags the AV, becasue it's classed as code that is so old it could be dangerous (exploiting decrepit backdoors that haven't been checked for decades etc)

But it's a problem with the very language the game is written in, and language just happens to vital to artstyle. The only way around it is to completely rewrite it from scratch in a different language, and write a command prompt style renderer for it to encapsulate itself in. I would never ask someone to do sometyhing so tedious, over 'reputation'.

The cause is obvious, and I wholly support him refusing to 'solve' the problem becasue the problem is quite simply lazy AV heuristics.

Badly made, not funny, the multiple choices appear to be a facade for hidden linearity.
