  1. Doesn't that have to do with filling a "certificate"signed by web site ?
  2. Yes, that was what he issue with it being considered dangerous was. It seems to be fixed now.

    I will sure give it a try, but certanly at least after a month.

    We/them (darkorbit team) have till 31th December 2020, the last day flash/browser game is supported in win 10 at least.

    I think they will fix all the problems.

    Beta client was a great experience,no lag,no problem at all.
  5. Where is the uninstaller??
    I want to delete the whole program including its Windows registry entries.

    I found the uninstaller; it's named "maintenancetool.exe". Not entirely intuitive.

    WARNING about the uninstaller!
    Ok, I originally installed the client in a "C:\games\DarkOrbit-client" folder.
    I've been reading the above discussion on how dangerous the uninstaller might be, especially if you installed directly to the root folder of a storage volume.
    So I created a junk file inside the "C:\games\DarkOrbit-client" folder, then ran the "maintenancetool.exe" to remove the program.
    That program did NOT merely remove files that it explicitly knew about; it DID remove the entire DarkOrbit-client folder, including my little junk file. So if you installed directly to the root folder, you may be stuck with having it sit there until you decide it's ok to wipe the entire computer to the bare walls and reinstall from scratch. I personally believe that the installer should refuse to install directly to a root folder, or to any folder that already has stuff inside, but then I'm not the author of this stop-gap temporary program.

  6. If you did not read my earlier post then , again , I suggest instead of using the uninstaller that is found in "control panel " use "system restore " and go to a date just before you downloaded. I went back about two days to the last Windows update. This will delete the download and restore your registry to the way it was prior to download.

    noticed that you have to continuously put in your master password it doesn't save it like it's supposed to save download client isn't really set up like the online verson once u r on a page in forum, u have to completely get out of forum and go back in if y want to check any other posts, and if the problem i am reading is happining regularly it needs to be taken care of, because no matter if y uninstall it from ur hard drive it shoul not in any way affect any of ur other files on that disc
  8. So, people are having problems with the uninstaller, here's what I did.

    On start panel list, bottom left of screen (win 10), you all know what I mean. I right clicked on the game icon and uninstall from there. took me to windows program list with all progs on it, again, I'm sure you know the one I'm talking about. From there select dark orbit and uninstall. worked fine, deleted ONLY dark orbit folder. Had to delete the rest of the folder string myself.

    Quick and simple. Try it.

    make a new file folder(DarkOrbit files) and place ur directory in that and then when u uninstall it will only uninstall that file folder and what's in it. also use ur software & Programs in ur contol panel and uninstall it that way

    Your Beta client needs to bee more like your online verson w/o flash player:
    1. back ward and forward keys to make it easier to backward and forward in forums(w/o completely going out of forum and reentering it).
    2. it's supposed to allow u to save ur password and ID but won't allow to do so and use, it when logging in. like ur online verson.
    3. If ur going to make a good beta verson it has to be so close to the original on line verson w/o flash player as u can make it,or ur going to have keep make update after updates until u get it right.

  13. I did read it, I just did not need to do it that way, my way worked fine. all I'm suggesting is alternatives, it's up to the user to decide which way they want to go.
  14. The fullscreen should be really fullscreen without the white thing on the top even after pressing the F11 for fullscreen.
    For second it kinda needs a better update for a stability cuz it's still laggy after a while.
  15. I am curious if this client is the foundation to the unity swap over? If so I wont nag over there being a refresh option for the flight screen. I did find that when I had my Bethesda launcher open while playing on the DO download client and decided to close the Bethesda it crashed my DO client.

    This is the message that I and another player received when using uninstaller. And since the complaint was that it removed more than just to DO download I went with , what in my opinion , is the safer option. It work for you but maybe not for others. And if it doesn't work the way you think it supposed to , then there is the possibility of losing data you did not want removed. When in doubt , go with the safer option. And you avoid the hassle of trying to retrieve lost data. I have used the uninstaller many times in the past and this is the first time I have ever seen this message.

    I have downloaded the game but it won't accept login ID, email, user ID, or passcode it keeps saying already in use!

    If you save you login to file it will not let you put your user ID in it's block and then the password w/o the pop-up for Master password pops up and won't let you put anything in the login boxes, and if it won't let you put in your User ID it comes back in Master Password pop-up and says incorrect login or password.
