Hi Nicol,

What probably is the case is that your anti-virus software has blocked or removed the .exe from the .zip-file. You can read about this problem on the Extant-forum here:


http://forum.audiogames.net/viewtopic.php?id=4310

Here's what others have posted about the problem:

Dark: "If you've tried downloading multiple times and got the same issue,
perhaps you've got an antivirus program which is acting up and auto deleting
the files for some reason, thus creating a zip folder with no contents (I
have seen this happen before). "

Raygrote: "Sounds like your antivirus is deleting it. Try either turnning it
off temporarily, then install and add the .exe as an exception.
If that doesn't work, try redownloading the zip file with a download manager
such as free download manager. This will make sure everything gets
downloaded. Most web browsers will not be able to help you out if the
download unexpectedly stops. I've seen some websites that trip all of the
web browsers I have, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Seamonkey.
They would download to a certain point and then stop and say it was
finished, leaving a corrupted file.
This game sounds awesome, downloading it now."

So maybe try adding an exception for Extant in your virus-software, or
temporarily turning off your virus software. Extant does not need
installing, simply unzipping.

Let me know if you can get it to work!

Greets,

Richard

Hi Richard
I am sorry to say, but when opening the file for the pc version of the game
after downloading it, I got this error:
Compressed (zipped) Folders Error
The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or corrupted.
I am using win xp's built in unzip program.

Hi Lori et al,

Thanks Lori, we'll definitely consider adding extra targeting feedback.

For all of you trying out the Extant tech demo, we're very interested in
details such as if you:

- are playing the PC or the Mac version?
- are using headphones, stereo desktop speakers, 5.1, 7.1, etc.?
- just use keyboard input or also use a mouse?
- reconfigured the original control scheme yet (you can if you want to)?
- can't get anything to work?
- etc.

This can help us establish with for instance why footsteps may appear too
loud for one player but soft for someone else. I can tell you, using
headphones or speakers makes quite a difference.

Also, we interested of what you think of the design of the gamespace. What
do you think of:

- how the world, the environment sounds?
- the different acoustics based on your current location (which is all
realtime dynamic reverberation by the way ;)
- how buildings work (finding them, entering and leaving them, etc.)?
- how pickups work?
- how fighting work (thanks again for those who already expressed their
feedback on this issue)?
- how orientation and navigation works, incl. Moby?

And did anyone already notice something peculiar about the gameworld? ;)

Thanks for your feedback, keep 'em coming. Please post either to this list
or join us on the Extant-forum:
