Guys please help I cant run the game on window mode and it crashes when I record it on OBS. 


Hi there! You're right, the game can't be played right now in window mode but we're finishing a new update and we can add some trick to do it. I'll let you know.

About OBS, we've tried on Windows 10 and it works for us. What' your operating system version?

OK so I really don't know what's the problem with OBS, sorry. With the 1.1.0 update you can force the windowed mode. Check this link to know how. 

Let us know if this new mode solves the issue.

The window mode works but for some reason when i record with OBS the game forcefully closes. Please fix that.  By the way I'm using OBS Classic.

Hello @dacoolmike. I'm really sorry that window mode didn't resolve the issue :( We want to see your gameplay! I'll try using OBS Classic to find out what's happening.

Meanwhile, could you check if you have file called error.txt at the same folder where the executable is located? The contect could shed some light on the problem. You can email it to us at Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't see any error.txt file. When I went to the download page of your website and downloaded the game it gave me a winrar version of the game which I extract to get the game. The game opens but if my OBS is open and recording as well the game for some reason stops working and forcefully closes. But if I'm not recording the game works fine. I was even looking forward to advertise your game. I may have to look other ways to do that.

Maybe in the latest version log generation was disabled. I've uploaded a new version for windows, the 1.1.1, that should generate logs. When you open the game and it crashes, check again and look for two files: error.txt and output.txt. Let's see if there are any useful information in any of those.

Maybe it's a configuration or hardware issue. We've seen several people sharing recordings of DigDeep on YouTube, so it's definitely possible. Have you tried using a different recording software?

On the other hand, I've installed OBS classic and tried recording the game without any issue. I don't know very much how to use this software, but I'm attaching a couple of screenshots so you can check my configuration. 

I hope some of this will help you!

When I opened the game again and record with OBS same thing happens the game forcefully closes even after using 1.1.1 version. I checked the error.txt but it was empty and the output.txt only has this following text.

By the way I'm recording the game on window mode and using window capture not game capture.  And for some reason when my OBS is open and recording its like it forces the game to crash and close. My version of OBS is v0.651b
