Hello! So my friend can run the demon on his laptop. But when he tries to open the program I've dropboxed him (Artemis.exe) he gets the cursor's loading circle for a few seconds and then nothing.

Anyone had a similar experience and know what might be wrong/how to fix it?

Tulty.

Artemis will not run without the data files that come with it.

Oh, ok! In that case, what should I be sharing rather than the Artemis.exe file?

To play you need the entire installed Artemis folder.

I see. So I should just Dropbox the entire Artemis folder? Didn't it use to be you only had to share the .exe? Apologies if I'm coming across as v ignorant...I thought that running the .exe for the first time installed the whole thing.

The install file should be in the form "ArtemisSBS_2.exe", with patches in the form "Artemis_Upgrade_v2_1_1.exe". Running the app will install the program "Artemis.exe" in a folder along with the game files. Those files and the subfolders "dat" and "art" are necessary.

I would put the whole game directory in the dropbox. That's probably more efficient than copying the program to every laptop that wants to run it. If the game seems to run slowly or lag, though, try installing a copy on each system.

Ok. In that case, anyone know where I can download this installer? I bought the game a few years ago now, and used the upgrade coupon to upgrade to V.2.1. Not entirely sure where to go to re-download in the event of having misplaced the installer etc.

I'm pretty sure the developer would prefer your friend brought a copy of the game?

I agree with you, but at the moment he can't afford to do so, and I bought the game myself so I could share it with my crew. But it's been so long since I played it that it seems either I can't remember how to share it, or the method of sharing it has changed.

As I plan to use my iPad as a station, I can't really upgrade to 2.2, so does anyone know where I can re-download the installer? Failing that I'll try uploading the entire directory to Dropbox, but I feel like I should try to get the game installed properly on his laptop.

Honestly, there's not much to get installed. I know of a number of folks who just have their 6 installs on thumb drives and run it from there
