It just says linguistic output test
A downloadable Game for Windows
**This game is originally made for the Fermi Paradox Jam in 16. It has not been updated for 1.5 years and the source code is pretty messed up right now. The latest playable version is the 9.15 update. If I can find time, I'll remake the game in Unity in the future.

Oh just wait for a bit and it'll say other stuff
Also the game is screwed up now...
This game looks really cool and I want to try it, but I'm not that tech-savvy.
I downloaded Release.7z and installed XNA Framework 4.0.
Extracted Release.7z via winrar and tried to run The simulator.exe (which I assume is the game), but it just brings up a console that repeatedly says 'Linguistic output test' and doesn't take input.
If I installed it incorrectly, what is the correct way to install and run the game?
(Oh i haven't worked on this for quite a while)That is just a loading screen. Try hitting enter also?
Thank you for coming back and helping me.
Well, i tried enter/clicking/pressing random keys/trying to see if the menubar had any options, but nothing worked.
The linguistic output test line keeps getting displayed again and again and again. I gave it 5 minutes in case in was supposed to be a really long loading screen, but still the same thing.
The game looks really cool and i want to try it, but I can't get past that screen.
Do you think you could write a few lines for an idiot-proof guide to downloading, installing and running it?
So, the downloads keep failing for me. Keep getting a "network error" message,
I'll try to solve that...
Have you tried that "alternative download" checkbox?
EDIT: I lied. Both normal, and alternate failed. Normal just took longer to fail, and alternate failed immediatly.
(document.pdf is the manual
release.7z is the jam version
debug.7z is the stress test version)
