Postcard Crash When Starting
When I open Proteus a message appears that says:

Proteus.Game.PostcardParseException
---
Initial validation . >(box).(box). .(box).(box). .(box).(box).
---
at Proteus.Game.PostcardData.ValidateAndThrow(Boolean check, String msg)
at Proteus.Game.PostcardData..ctor(WwBuffer dataBuffer)
at Proteus.Game.Postcard.ReadFromFile()

OK
Note: (box) represents a rectangle.

Upon entering the title screen; my cursor leaves a trail behind it composed of more white circles and a different color depending on the background. Everything else leaves the same kind of mark, too. When I start the trees, and my eyelids also leave marks on the background. After reopening Proteus I tried to open a postcard that looked weird. It was predominantly black (or some sort of dark blue) with white marks that are almost symmetrical and a gray mark shaped similarly to a spiral below the white marks. I got bored bored of wating and went on Google Chrome for a while. After 6 minutes I checked back and received another message. It said Fatal Error on the upper righthand corner. I was clumsy and accidentally closed it. Now it's been 17 minutes. Can someone help please?

Is this your first time playing, or did you play for a bit then quit?
I'm only guessing, but it sounds like your save data is corrupt, since the Post Cards are basically your save files and there is an error loading them. I think they are stored in your Documents folder. Maybe delete these and reload the game?
If this happened the first time you played it, then maybe you will have to try tinkering with compatibility settings.

I did play a bit then quit. I deleted my postcards folder and I made a new postcard and loaded it without a problem. My only problem with proteus now is with everything leaving a trail behind. I also tried to delete local content then reinstall Proteus.
