Interesting. I never get this issue, but I'll look into it.

Can you give me a description of the error? I'm not getting the issue.

I'm trying to play this game, but every time I load it, it says there's a fatal error in something in your code.

This game is awesome and classic.

It appears that the Updating Bug was somewhat fixed. It's at least a different time now. The notice will be removed from the OP.

Also, I've updated the game again! The features are listed in the OP. More details on how to use them are in the game. Remember to check out the Help Menu!

Yeah, that's what I thought. The GM:S player made me download it again and I did end up with a version with save states, so the updating may be working, but who knows. Publishing and updating my projects on Workshop has been a bit flaky for me as well.

Download the Windows Installer and compare.

The initial version didn't have Save States. That's the main difference. The update coming this weekend will also have some new, notable features.
