Hey Uzra47, Could you email firstname.lastname@example.org with an image of the symbol, any logs (which you can access the log folder via the options menu) and any dmp files within the root of the install directory. This will give us a lot more information in order to track this issue down.
Very awesome I certainly will check it out. Thank you for the kind words.
The main story is static planets. So the overarching story is the same, but we have side missions that change every time as well as in game events that you might not see every time.
👋 Thank you so much for your kind words. It's certainly a hard to make sure the player knows what to do and feel the agency to do it. As for font size I think the best you could is play the game in windowed mode and use the magnifier tool to enlarge it. We've been looking into what it'd take the make font sizes bigger with the game and even buttons and etc. Not much progress and it's looking like a large task but a very requested one.
Can you email email@example.com If you can open %appdata%/theawayteam and email all the logs to us this might help us understand what's going on further. Also can you let us know your PC specs and OS?
That is unique... That's a new bug :D
So could you help us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with logs from %appdata%/TheAwayTeam/Logs as well as any DMP files in the game's root folder? located typically at %appdata%/itch/apps/the-away-team
OpenAL is the Open Audio Library. It's an open source audio library that the open source library I use uses. Which I use SFML which is the Simple, Fast, Multimedia, Library. Does things like inputs, rendering, and sounds. So from what I found is https://openal.org/downloads/oalinst.zip installing this will typically fix that bug. If not you could try installing MSVC++ redist 2015. If you are launching through the itch client you should no longer have issues with either of these things.
Can you email email@example.com any logs in %appdata%/TheAwayTeam/ as well as any files in saved/ and any dmp files found in the root of the game? I'm not entirely sure why it'd crash there, that's a new one for us.
Oh, interesting terribly sorry but looking at the DLL that comes from 2015. https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=48145 this confuses me because I've not been on 2015 for some time. Never the less that should work this time. 🤞
Are you downloading the game directly or installing it through the itch client? if through the itch client itch should attempt to install https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/VC_redist.x86.exe which is seen on microsoft's official site: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/older-downloads/ under redistributables
Could you email the details of the crash to firstname.lastname@example.org? Things like OS and any .dmp files in the folder's root and any logs from %appdata%\TheAwayTeam\logs (assuming your on some version of windows)
Great to see you working on this. I love the aesthetic. Missing content but it's the best shrub flattening simulator I've played. Car is a bit squirrelly but I got it going 190-ish MPH... I think. The speedometer is hard to read. Either way keep up the progress! :D
We are excited to share The Away Team: Lost Exodus with everyone! We add a ton of new gameplay features, steam workshop support and lots of new content! Our itch page is https://underflow-studios.itch.io/the-away-team. As well check out our awesome release trailer below.
We are really excited to be continuously pushing out to Itch. While the Steam Workshop integrationisn't available for DRM-free copies we are looking into supporting mod.io. Additionally character files have been reformatted to better support DRM-free sharing specifically to support the itch community. We dump the image to json and push everything in to the character json file. Which is pretty exciting stuff.
What is The Away Team: Lost Exodus?
What we call a space explorative text adventure.

Visited by different crew each time you play as the ship AI in a trek across the universe to save the last of humanity.
Additionally for the next 15 hours we have a giveaway going on here: https://www.indiedb.com/giveaways/the-away-team

Following up with what cheeseness said. I would love to know which DLL was missing. I will immediately fix this issue. I am so sorry there was a DLL missing. I'm going to guess it's probably the C++ redist DLL. On steam it installs some redists for us. On itch we don't have that option. I should package all third party dlls with the itch version and I thought I did... But maybe the C++ redist dll is missing. It may also be openal although I thought I got that DLL.
Lastly my email is always open for support issues at email@example.com (this goes to my personal email so don't think you are sending an email into a support void. I usually respond within 16 hours business hours (48 hours real time).
This was really fun. Is there any source to this?
Edit: found it at: https://bitbucket.org/JohnGabrielUK/fire-and-fondness
John, this is really well written, clean and amazing. You did a really a good job.
As a developer who didn't do this. I went the other way and gave people steam keys anyway. I want to ensure you that this is the right choice. Dealing with scammers and people who clearly just want to support places like g2a and their own wallets over playing a wonderful game. I fully regret allowing my own steam keys to run rampant even though it felt like the "right" thing at the time, the real right thing is to be protected from scammers.
The away team is now on Itch.io! https://underflow-studios.itch.io/the-away-team It's an Interactive Adventure game. Very choose your own adventure with some 2D elements. In this interactive sci-fi adventure novel, you are the AI pilot of Earth's last interstellar ship, tasked with finding a home for your crew—the last remnants of humanity. Your choices will determine their fate, and your own. At the end, who is to say the humans have any humanity left to save?
Our first devlog hit the community as well: https://underflow-studios.itch.io/the-away-team/devlog/11612/hello-itchio-commun... which I would love as much feedback as possible from the community.
Each purchase comes with a steam key as well so you can play on the platform of your choice with the OS of your choice (Win, Mac, Lin)
