Revenge of the Titans - Known Issues
Please note: when updating versions your old saved game profiles may no longer work. Apologies in advance for any lost progress.*
* see below for a possible workaround
Nothing happens when running the program
Running a second time prompts error 'Revenge of the Titans did not shut down correctly last time you tried to play!'
A rare Windows problem. Sorry - no fixes at the moment for this :( ... We're looking into it...
Game exits instantly, usually when clicking on any title screen buttons
A problem with proprietary ATI OpenGL drivers for Linux.
Free open source ATI drivers seem to work, such as the Radeon driver.
On start-up, all I get is a black and green screen
A problem with OpenGL (graphics) drivers on older computers.
Please update your OpenGL drivers (see drivers section below). Unfortunately on older Macs such as G4s this may not be possible, without getting a newer version of the OS.
On start-up, the game window is invisible, but mouse movement is restricted to it's geometry!
Temporary solution: on Windows try holding ALT and pressing TAB, then reselect the game from the available programs.
On starting, window is too big for the screen
Usually a problem with Linux and multiple monitors. You can now pass the following on the commandline to set custom window sizes...
Example to set windowed screen size:
./revenge.sh width=640 height=480
Example to customize fullscreen positioning:
./revenge.sh vx=0 vy=0 vw=640 vh=480
Characters are missing from registration details
Characters such as â, ë, ï õ and ü are missing from our font.
We will either add these characters to our font, if possible, or replace with un-accented characters.
The game doesn't recognise the keyboard
Possibly a problem with Linux in which iBus disallows keyboard focus on programs using Java.
Temporary solution: quit iBus before launching (thanks Conzar!)

Will it run on my computer?
The games we develop are designed to run on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
All the games we feature should run on most computer hardware bought in the last few years, as long as up-to-date graphics drivers are installed - please see the Drivers section below.
Nearly all crashes in games are due to old or outdated video drivers. PC users should visit their video card vendor's web site and download the latest drivers. Usually you will have one of Nvidia, ATI, or Intel inside your computer.
Mac users can get updates automatically from Apple via Software Update.
I've purchased one of your games and have yet to receive confirmation?
The transaction may be waiting to be accepted by our payment processing service. Though this should only take a moment, in rare cases this may take up to 24 hours, sometimes longer if using Paypal.
Please also check the confirmation email hasn't been blocked by spam filters.
I've reformatted by computer. How do I reinstall a game?
Download the latest demo version and install it. Run the game and it will ask you for your email address. Enter the email address you used when originally purchasing the game and it will connect to our registration server and unlock the game for you again.
Can I install the game on my Mac AND my PC?
Yes, when you buy any of our games the registration is valid for PC, Mac and Linux.
Game will not start, and desktop shortcut is missing it's target file.
In rare cases, anti-virus software (such as Norton) will treat program (.exe) files like a virus when you install them - and automatically delete them... without telling you!
You'll need to reinstall the game, excluding the game's program folder (eg. C:\Program Files\DroidAssault) from scanning.
With Norton for example, this folder will need to be added to both the Scan Exclusions section and the Real Time Protection Exclusions section in Norton's settings.
Our games check for updates when starting and will notify you of any new versions we release. To get the new version, simply download and install the latest demo version from our front page.
If you have already registered your game, it will remain registered when you install the new demo.
