To whom it may concern,
   Thank you very much for porting this game to modern platforms! I am a second-generation M.U.L.E. player, and got this game last night when my family was looking for something to do with the evening. My parents were back in their element, my younger brother picked it up quickly, and the colony had a shortage of energy. Everything worked perfectly.
   The problem hit at the end of round six. I had laughed to my mother that I had never made it past this round when playing with my sister, but she ran out of time before hitting the pub. The game backed out to the planet view with the ominous "RAN OUT OF TIME" message across the bottom of the screen, but wouldn't proceed to the trading phase. We pressed any buttons we could on our controllers, but we could only access the options menu. We called it a night since it was getting late by that point, but I was really excited to see what happened once our economy started ramping up.

Here are the specs for the computer I was using. Can you help me so I can go back to showing all my friends what an amazing game this is?

Darn. That stinks. I'm sorry about that. At first thought, I'd say I haven't heard or experienced your issue. But there was a similar freeze I encountered twice many months ago--so long that I assumed it was no longer a thing and none of the playtesters every reported such.

Do you know if your sister's turn was the last in the rotation and a round event or production was going to happen afterwards? In which case, that would be the freeze I saw a while ago. It's quite elusive. If that's the case, I need to think about it more. If it's not the case, I need to *really* think about it!

Can you do send your game info & game logs to

The logs are located at:

And the save games are located at:

In the future it will be possible to resume incomplete offline games from those save game files.

Thanks for the feedback & sorry about the lost game. I spent a lot of time chasing known crashes the month before release. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough.


Sent. Thanks for the quick response!
