Not-so-Hot mail

Hotmail says that my .dmod file has a virus in it... ...and I am pretty sure it doesn't...
I kind of want to distribute Betas today/tomorrow...

Note: In case you read this to those who are beta testing "Ex-Peppermint". I have decided to release the first beta when the game is done up to and including the final boss...(but not the end and some of the features.) If I ever do release one that is...
...it is coming to the point where no one can do much testing anyway before the deadline...

Well last time I tryed to contact you there was no response Slaughterer; I suppose I could send you what I have so far though I can send you the other files and updates when I complete them I suppose.

Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice. 
Why don't you make a yahoo or gmail account and send it from there?

GlennGlenn doesn't want a custom title. 
Or maybe the reason is that you are actually sending a virus?

No. Hotmail and msn messenger think all "executioning" files are virusses, like .exe, .bat, and also .dmod. Send it via gmail.

Thank you very much Mr. Christian.

Of course I should have known that Microsoft would do what they could to prevent the success of other developers...

Especially after using their Java Programing environment that used to freeze out of nowhere for no reason with out any auto save feature...>_<

I should set them adrift with 18 men who are still loyal to them...

Unfortunatly that means I have to set up another E-Mail account to have to check...;_;

I seem to remember that hotmail doesn't object so much if you compress the files first... its fooled by the .zip... but that mightn't help here.

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to.I guess. 
zip and then rename works. Or just zip, then zip, then rename... there are various ways.

You could always open it up in a hex viewer, and send it as a text file.

Hopefully now I can send out the betas...
