    I wouldn't download this since it contains a Program:Win32/Wacapew.B!ml virus. I don't even know if Rose is legit or not. 

    Hi, modern day anti-malware suites work more and more on machine learning, which means it uses a dumb algorithm to determine whether a file is malicious or not based on how much similarity it has to actual malware. As far as I can tell this is what the "!ml" at the end means -- it's a match based on a machine learned algorithm that was trained on malicious and non-malicious files (but apparently without any modding related files in the data set it was trained on...).

    As a result, and as mentioned in the file description, basically any file that uses CheatEngine components to manipulate the memory of another process tend to get flagged as malicious by the machine learning algorithm since, well... I imagine it is because it changes the memory of another process... Which is exactly what it was designed to do and what players want it to do...

    Rose has a long history of creating and uploading CheatEngine based mods to PCGamingWiki, so they are as "legit" as one can be in today's environment where false positives of gaming related mods/patches are a dime a dozen, though ultimately it's up to you whether you want to run the tool or not. 

  2. Thanks -- I've approved this one and made various changes to get the two versions more in line with one another.

     

    Depending on what other staff members think, we might end up merging the two files into one, since the community site supports multiple versions for each file.

  3. Hi,

     

    PCGW is generally against bypassing DRM and such, see the wiki policy.

    I noticed that the developers were still semi-active on the Steam forums for another one of their titles, and this game is still being sold on Steam. Have you tried reaching out to them on admin@dreamssoftgames.com about the issue? I imagine they might be able to fix the issue properly on their end or, possibly, upload a copy without this issue.

     

    Cheers!

  4. @asabarabi, sadly it seems the forum software can't handle the name of the file you uploaded. Can you remove any special characters etc and ensure the file name is only named using regular Latin characters such as A-z, 0-9, and dots/underscores/dashes, etc ? Then re-upload the file again by using "File Actions ->  Upload a new version".

    Windows 10 is recognizing the file as a  virus and not allowing it to run at all.

    "operation did not complete successfully because the file contain a virus or potentially unwanted software"

    Probably a false positive, though you've to decide yourself whether to 'trust' the file or not. PCGW in general does not guarantee  the safety of files, and due to the numbers of false positives occurring in gaming related files -- particularly those created using e.g. Cheat Engine -- we usually don't remove uploaded files either due to "virus detections".

    See the "Virus detected in PCGamingWiki file" section for a bit of context.

    This is A virus, Trojan. Do not use!

    Reports as Trojan:Win32/Glupteba!ml

    Astroneer FOV - Steam.exe

    The last part of the recognized virus definition “!ml” suggests the definition was created through machine learning. Basically there is an extremely high chance of it being a false positive.

    @Rose is otherwise a well-known and recognized ultrawidescreen modder whose patches occasionally runs into AV’s false positives.

    @cbk@csolutions.no, at the end of the day you yourself have to determine if you put your trust in a stranger online, but for what it’s worth, I personally highly suspect this is a false positive. Of course I can’t say for certain, but then nobody really can unless they created the executable themselves.

    Launcher has been cut from the official edition of the game purchased in Poland, which was published here by Cenega, so it cannot contain viruses.

    Of course I can publish the password version, but what is this for? It will only make the process of installing the Polish language more difficult.

    It isn't about whether the file is actually malicious or not -- it's intended to protect PCGamingWiki from automatic flagging by third-party internet safety scanners like for example Google's Safe Browsing filter.

    You can read more about it in the files section of the editing guide: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/PCGamingWiki:Editing_guide/Files#Password_protection_policy

  8. Hi,

    Can you upload a password protected version of the archive? The launcher packaged in this archive triggers AVs.

    Click on File Actions -> Upload a new version at the bottom of the "About This File" section to upload a new version of the file.

    Cheers!

  9. Hi!

    Am I correct in assuming this acts as a crack and effectively disables Steam API related features as well as the ownership check of the Steam copy?

    PCGW attempts to distance itself from cracks, so the use of steam_api64.dll as the DLL injection point makes it currently questionable whether we should approve the upload or not.

    If possible, then I highly recommend using some other DLL as the injection point such as D3D12.dll or DXGI.dll.

    I don't want to be that guy, but I thought we had dismissed this solution already with XInput Plus, due to the bugs and problems it caused here and there?

    No idea -- never heard of Xinput Plus before today.

    I used to use this driver to enable force feedback in old DirectInput based games on my Xbox Controller and don't remember having run into any noticeable issues with it, so feel free to elaborate on what potential issues you mean.

    Looking up XInput Plus, that tool allows rebinding what Xbox Controller buttons the virtual DirectInput controller maps to, which is sorta another use case entirely -- primarily to solve issues between games expecting different controller layouts. Sure, that tool might encompass more, feature-wise, but I see no reason as to why that would prevent the inclusion of this tool. If I only care about a couple of DirectInput games which all expects the same controller button layout then I'd personally prefer this install-it-and-forget-it driver as opposed to messing with a separate tool and whatnot.
