Talos - The Citadel

Post by Torry » 24 Feb 2018 02:46

Can someone tell me why the tomb4.exe in this level package is constantly trying to connect to the internet and for what good reason?

I remember having played that level without any issues (maybe I had to add the exe to exceptions on Avast, not sure anymore). Also agree with vimmers. And I don't see Talos hacking in any way.

AVG used to reject routinely reject all patched Tomb4.exe files such as the ones preferred by Talos, causing me much frustration trying to find a work-around. They've changed their procedure, however, by running a 15-second scan to determine whether anything malicious is present, then you get an "all clear" message and the game starts. Maybe you just need to switch your anti-virus provider.

It's not the exe connecting to the internet, it is your virus scanner sending information about this "malicious" exe (NOT!!) to the data base of the virus scanner program

I see this message now (sorry). :cry:

Unfortunately all my tomb4. exe are modified in 2013, but the antivirus haters hate them. Even when I edit AVG it creates problems :annoyed: I do not know what to do, it is a lost war... creates difficulties even me that I create the levels.

I want to ensure that no tomb4. exe of my levels is malevolent, it's just a modified tomb4. exe by Delta (a patch with the Trep). I do not understand why after so many years every antivirus creates problems. I have not modified anything from the Legend of Triton's tomb4. exe, except the icon image, from NG Center... :beadyeyes2: The script is the same, the exe is the same, the PC is the same! Why should you create these problems (even me, now)? :?

The only different exe's are those of Antas Dungeons (classic tomb4.exe), Tragodia (BtB Greece) and Another Xmas Spell

AVG constantly does that. Just set *tomb4.exe as an exception. (The asterisk is needed)

Turn it off. Play offline. Unfortunately there are no other solutions :(
