Re: Not launching
What windows are you running?
On the website there is also a 32Bit demo to download, in case you use an older windows version.

Re: Not launching
Make sure you have directX 9.0c or higher installed. Also try updating your graphics card drivers. Do you get any error, or does it just not start?

Re: Not launching
Hmm hard to say what the problem is.
Someone else had the problem that windows did not extract the UnityPlayer.dll.
Can you make sure you have a UnityPlayer.dll next to the executable?

Can you check if you have a logfile in the Nimbatus Data folder? Maybe this may help find the cause of the problem.

Re: Not launching
Can't see an obvious log file.
What would it be called?

It would be called Player.log

Mhh not good in this case it could not even start, maybe an anti virus software is not allowing the game to launch.
Another way to analyze the error is to have a look into the windows event viewer, if there is an error related to the start of Nimbatus ( https://www.digitalmastersmag.com/magazine/tip-of-the-day-how-to-find-crash-logs-on-windows-8/ )

Re: Not launching
There is an error created when starting nimbatus.
It doesn't mean anything to me but maybe you can learn something from it.

Re: Not launching
Also, no file called player.log and it doesn't launch when anti-virus is disabled

Re: Not launching
It's really hard to say what the problem is.
Another thing you could try is installing .Net 3.5, we use it in the Game. Normally windows 8 should already have .net 4.5 installed. But it may be worth a try  ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/install/net-framework-3-5-on-windows-8-plus )

Re: Not launching
That didn't help either.
Maybe its the fact I'm using windows 8.1 Industry pro instead of a home or other type. I haven't had problems with any other games though.
