UPDATE #14 22/09/2011: v1.93 beta is available for
download. Hopefully people will have less (or no) issues with this
version. Changelist below:
Added extensive error handling – hopefully we’ll get more constructive information when something goes wrong.
Added “Create diagnostic file”. This option will produce a
simple text file on your desktop that contains some useful debug
information. I can use this info to help troubleshoot problems, so
please use it when you contact me!
Added “Launch via Steam” checkbox, under “Play Dead Island”.
When this checkbox is set, Dead Island Helper will launch the game using
the Stream protocol (steam://) when you click “Play Dead Island”.
Movies will still be enabled (unless you disable them with “-nologos” in
the launch properties). Use this option if things don’t work quite
right when running the game directly via “Play Dead Island”.
Added “Clear all settings” option. This will clear the settings folder,
game directory and all non-tweak related settings from Dead Island
Helper’s memory and restart the program. This will give you a clean
slate to work from when using new versions.
Dead Island Helper will automatically exit on startup unless it
detects the correct settings folder, or you’re able to manually select
the correct settings folder.
Dead Island Helper will no longer demand administrative
privileges when it runs. However, you may need to use “Run as
Administrator” if some features do not work.
UPDATE #15 22/09/2011: v1.94 beta, out now for the
brave! I finally managed to track down the crash problem that was
causing issues for so many people.
This update also fixes a crucial bug with the save game backup feature –
it is strongly recommended you update to v1.94 beta if you use this
feature and please, DO NOT use any of the save backups you’ve created
with versions of the tool before 1.94 beta because they won’t work!
Fixed a critical bug with the save game and backup feature. This
now also backs up the “remotecache.vdf” file, which contains important
size and timestamp data.
Fixed a bug that would cause Dead Island Helper to crash on
non-Administrator accounts and accounts without application
