Please Deposit Coin and Try This Game


If you're feeling adventurous and helpful, I'd appreciate the following favor:

Download this:
http://media.pyweek.org/dl/4/BDG_07_04/wtipd_dos.exe

(requires Windows and a non-poky net connection; it's 7.1 MB of download)

If you can do that, the next step is to run the program. You should see some circles, not unlike the picture above. If you don't get the picture, and just get a blank screen - I want to know. If the program just quits, or crashes, or spits arcane crap to the DOS box, all of these things are good to know.

I'll probably make another version soon (?) which may give even more information about what might be going wrong, if something does go wrong.

Thanks in advance to any crazy people who try it.

I got

'about to init' in the DOS box

and then a window opens up, but it doesn't have anything in it.

Then it "spits arcane crap to the DOS box" that I can't read and quits.

looking forward to the next attempt

If you get to it before I make a new version:

If you can open up a DOS box and run it from command line, the arcane error spew won't disappear right away. If you could cut and paste it here, that'd be great.

If not, I'll have a version which tries to capture that sort of thing sometime today.

Thanks either way.
