Ah ok thanks for the report, probably not much I can do about that, it's a libgdx support function, shouldn't really be crashing at all, and works on my machines at least ... Anyone else see this?

Oh ffs, there is some curse with me and the word incumbent. In the Android release there's a legitimate typo, and this type I just fingerslipped an extra character in there. Oh well :)
What disappears actually? Are you able to name of the empire? Or do you simply not get the input field where you can type that name?
Hi guys! I've just uploaded BETA builds, and you can grab them just like usual.
If you are feeling adventurous, or want to help :) - try it out. Let me know if you find any issues, if you like it, etc etc. You can just comment right in here.
Yes looks like you did everything right, thanks! Yet we did not learn anything :)
Can you do me a favour and try the zip file named galimulator-jar.zip, unzip that and try to double click on the galimulator-desktop.jar file?
OK good effort :)
What you need to do is put the file galimulator-windows-64bit.zip in the c:\Memeulator director then, unzip all the contents in there, you can do this through the usual file manager in windows. Now you should find yourself with a new directory called galimulator-windows-64bit within the c:\Memeulator. Now open a prompt and type:
Now execute the executable file, like so:
Thanks for your effort! Yeah the prompt is not a friendly thing for those who are new to it ...
If you unzip everything in the windows folder, that's fine, though I'd delete it afterwards if I were you, just to not make an aesthetic mess, but that's just me :)
What you want to type next is:
Or I think, just type "galimulator" and hit the TAB button, and it should auto-complete.
I may add a setting like "Allow insane galaxy sizes" - and then you could enter those through the "Enter Exact Figure" button. But there will be a disclaimer that this galaxy size is officially unsupported :)
Oh you found 'd' for debug mode - those yellow dots are the center locations that determine what the empires will be named - e.g. Sweden, Wisconsin etc. You may have to restart to get rid of them, and then stop pressing d :)
That's strange, there's lots of windows users who are able to run it, the vast majority of users are on Windows in fact :/ Are you trying from the itch.io client or just running the downloadable executable?
Hi! I'm sorry to hear that, though I don't test on 32 bit, it should (tm) still work. What platform are you on? Windows? Are you able to run it in a terminal to see the printouts you get there?
Anything for a fellow linux user! It's developed on linux so it should work, not really sure what's up with the jar file, only tried it on Windows, and probably wine wine :) ... But since it seems you're familiar with a shell, I've just uploaded the class file for you:
> java MapBitter lovelyearth.bmp
I will do my best to process: lovelyearth.bmp for you
Land pixels: 214385
Sea pixels: 707215
Map successfully save to: lovelyearth.bits
Hi! More advanced diplomacy like relationship bars etc will not be in the next release, as this is already in beta on Android (though I am trying to chase down the notorious crash bug so it may take a while). I do want do have more advanced diplomacy in the future, but it's very hard to get it right :)
Truce I'm not so sure about, you think it should trigger automatically after some time? Would it be the same as peace? What would be the point of it? :)
Hi! There are some crashes that are fixed for the next Android update (coming at least to Beta soon). Meanwhile, there is a known crash that happens after the ads go away. Do the crashes coincide with that? If so - buying the IAP to remove the ads may solve the problem :)
Hi! Sounds awesome, maybe some day :) This type of moddability takes a lot of work to implement, and really requires a sizable active community to make it worthwhile. I do not have this many users, so adding this feature now would face a significant risk of basically 0 users :/
