Do I need any special program to run this file?
Nope! Uranium is not a rom hack, so you just need to launch the .exe from the download folder. However, you will need Winrar or 7zip in order to extract the .rar; those are free and are just a google away.
Does it work on Mac?
It’s an .exe, so it’s not designed to run on macs, but you could try using an external program loader such as Wine or a windows emulator such as Boot Camp.
My antivirus told me it was a trojan!
It’s not a trojan. The software just comes from an unknown source/company (us) so it sets off the alarm, but it’s all totally benign.
It’s telling me one or more fonts are missing and won’t run!
Try restarting the game; it should automatically install the fonts in your registry. If not, you can manually install them yourself by selecting the font files in the folder and copying them to your font database (found in control panel -> appearance -> install or remove a font).
What are the controls?
Arrow keys to move, C to confirm/interact, X to exit, cancel a choice, and open the menu, f5 to use a registered item, Z to run. (you can see all of this in-game by choosing “controls” in the intro lecture.)
How can I mute the music?
Pressing F1 opens a menu that lets you mute the BGM and customize the controls to fit your liking.
Do I have to start my adventure over when I download the new version?
No; just copy the “game.rxdata” file over from the old folder to the new one. If it tells you it’s corrupted and/or crashes, you can send the file to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll manually upgrade it for you.
I downloaded the game, but the .exe didn’t unzip with the rest of the folder!
This has to do with certain antivirus programs (AVG and Norton) automatically detecting the .exe and quarantining the file upon extraction.
Clicking on Game.exe doesn’t do anything! [on Windows 7/8]
Right-click the .exe, go to Properties > Compatibility, and choose “Run in Compatibility Mode”. This will also help with the fonts bug. If that doesn’t work, let us know.
I encountered a bug and now I’m trapped!
Email us your game.rxdata file and we’ll unstick you. (on Windows it is located under C/User/My Saved Games/game.rxdata)
v.3.1 Known Bugs
- Losing to a special trainer such as Gym leaders and Theo will cause the eyecatch to continue to play on every battle. Simply defeat them to turn it off.
- The first release of 3.1 has a serious bug where Pokemon won’t gain exp. We uploaded a fixed version shortly after, but if you are having that bug, you will need to re-download.
- The first trainer in Passage Cave II crashes the game program. If he is avoided, then the quest can still be completed.
- If you have a bug to report, we’d much prefer you submit them to our Deviantart or send us an email at email@example.com, tumblr’s message system isn’t very good -
