I just downloaded it (paid $5 (didn't each lunch today for you)) the download didn't save as .exe for some reason just proun, so i tacked on a .exe and it installs. (Vs redist is still a little slow to install though)

Awesome game! Emptied my poor paypal for this :lol:

I would also like to report that this works with no problems with wine 1.2.2 which is what Ubuntu 11.04 has (I get a nice ~100 fps with very high details on gtx460 @ 1920x1080). Only the installer keeps restarting itself, but if you just click close it all finishes and the game works then.

HOLY CRAP

i just browsed twitter and read the following tweet:
@Quinns108 Quintin Smith
Here is how much I think you should spend on Pay-What-You-Want game Proun. You should spend /one million dollars./
and it was retweeted by @rockpapershot!

congrats to you Oogst!
I hope it snowballs for you!

EDIT:

First of all, great game! Did only check the free version but as soon as there's money on my Paypal I will buy it.

I found another bug which has to do with joystick controls: If a use any axes of my gamepad the game crashes without helpful error messages (just the windows error box asking if the problem should be sent).
Testes with a PS3 gamepad using Motionjoy drivers on Windows 7 64-Bit.

I don't own any other gamepads anymore, so I can't say if this is a Motionjoy, but so far I this is the first game which has problems using it.

Using buttons and the D-Pad works fine.

Loved the youtube video, but I wish I could actually play your game.
Also, as I repped it to others on the forum I mod for, the domain seemingly died.

http://www.proun-game.com/ comes up as if the domain is not registered.
OpenDNS seems to think that the nameservers for hosting2go.nl are at fault (possibly knocked offline from the traffic?)
Nameserver trace for http://www.proun-game.com:
Looking for who is responsible for root zone and followed a.root-servers.net.
Looking for who is responsible for com and followed d.gtld-servers.net.
Looking for who is responsible for proun-game.com and followed ns2.hosting2go.nl.

Nameservers for http://www.proun-game.com:
ns2.hosting2go.nl returned (SERVFAIL)
ns1.hosting2go.nl returned (SERVFAIL)
Anyways, as far as my problem with the game, this is the error message I get, and luckily it is also in the ogre log:

Code: Select all

22:30:25: Finished parsing scripts for resource group General0
22:30:25: Loading resource group 'General0' - Resources: 1 World Geometry: 1
22:30:25: OGRE EXCEPTION(3:RenderingAPIException): Cannot create D3D9 pixel shader Cg_DoF_SM3_64samples_FP from microcode. in D3D9GpuFragmentProgram::loadFromMicrocode at ..\..\..\ogre\RenderSystems\Direct3D9\src\OgreD3D9GpuProgram.cpp (line 369)
I am running Windows 7 x64, 2gb DDR2 RAM, ATI Radeon x1550.

From the error, it seems to be trying to load shader model 3. I believe my card supports this, but I'm not certain. If not, it is incorrectly trying to load SM3 when it should be trying SM2.
I thought the game might be SM3 only, but I read in this topic that it is compatible down to SM1.1, so that is not the case. BUt maybe I'm chasing a wild goose here...

Edit:
Until your site is up, maybe people will find it here.

Maybe you can post some info about your game on some indie-game-related-sites like indiedb.com or indiegamemag.com indiegamereviewer etc... to spread knowledge of the game :)

TotalBiscuit did a first impressions video on Proun, very complimentary!
http://youtu.be/vZElWj8UB9I
81k views 8 hours after uploading it.

As he later tweeted:
Ahh crap, sorry Proun :[ Your site appears to have exploded. Should I start warning indies about forthcoming videos or something?
- http://twitter.com/#!/Totalbiscuit/stat ... 0244202496
For those of you who don't know TotalBiscuit, he manages to take down 90% of the websites he mentions in his videos... just because he mentions them.

Come back Proun! I didn't get a chance to buy your fantastic game. =)

The server company turned it offline because the highscore server was getting too much traffic. :( There is a temporary alternative website here:

http://www2.hku.nl/~joost1/Proun/

I'm going to look for an alternative to run my PHP+MySQL script on for the highscores. I'm pretty n00b with server stuff, so if anyone has any hints? Also, if anyone would like to help out making my php script more efficient, then please send me an email: joost -at- ronimo-games.com. It's not that much, but I am just total beginner with PHP/MySQL...

I am running Windows 7 x64, 2gb DDR2 RAM, ATI Radeon x1550.
This seems to happen only on some Ati cards. I am investigating that now. The only Ati specific issue I know, is mixing sm 2 vertex shaders with sm3 fragment shaders. Do you know any other Ati specific shader things?

Just wow. After playing for some hours I can say for sure: I love this game.
Speed of light is so much fun. I know my score will get beaten for sure but currently I'm second on track 1 and 3 and first on track 2 globally... it's the first game which makes me care about highscore lists!

Told another friend about the game, he likes it a lot too! If he won't buy the game he will get it as a present so I can give you some more money. :)

Ok, I bought it. Paid the minimum, sorry. Seems like a pretty cool game. Works great in stereo 3D (Nvidia drivers). Nice job!

Proun seems to be a sweet game.

Unfortunately I can't play it.

I also attached the Ogre log file. Perhaps this could be useful.

My operation system is Win 7, 64 bit.
My graphic card is Radeon X1950 pro (DirectX 9).
