ABOUT Special K - "Kaldaien's Mod"

Special K Soon to be Listed on the Steam Store

Re-purposing this Group
When Special K goes live for "sale" (Free and Open Source Software still) on Steam, development and support should be directed there. This group will remain for archival purposes and curator purposes if Kaldaien continues to reverse engineer and fix individual games in order to comment on their ports.

We would like to keep the store forums more professional, and that means Development threads that aren't 90% tech talk and 10% development talk ;) In order to facilitate that, if you still want to have a threaded discussion with the same group of people, the group's perfectly suited to that.

For now try to think of the store forums as formal / professional and the group as informal. If there is a more meaningful way of distinguishing the two or allowing a more casual environment in the store forums we'll figure it out as things go.

What even prompted me to to run a full scan is that I was listening to Jake Kaufman's (guy that made Shovel Knight's soundtrack) bandcamp & noticed his banner was a link to his website. I guess his lease on it ran out or something because firefox's ublock plugin threw up a warning page blocking the connection. It's weird that Defender flagged it as specifically that nasty uwamson trojan.

Not to give the wrong idea here, of course...... I did not pack stuff up to evade anti-virus software :P I have custom .7z decompression code in Special K for streaming textures from .7z files and I decided to re-use the code to shave size off the file.

Yeah, that's the build that accidentally included dgVoodoo2. Glad to see anti-virus software is finally scanning .7z files.

Special K's DLL has several .7z files packed into it, and when uncompressed some anti-virus software doesn't like the contents of the packed data... but no software (not even on VirusTotal) actually unpacks the DLL and examines its contents. That's how useless this stuff is, it can be defeated just by packing up code.

Under "Affected Items" it flagged C:\Users\myusername\Documents \My Mods\SpecialK\Version\SK_0_10_2_1.7z

I went ahead & allowed it to remove the "threat" before bothering to check online about it. Next time I'm at my pc I'll look for a history or something in Defender to see if it says what specific file it had a problem with.

There have also been a rise in... well... flagging stuff based on association alone. Microsoft, for example, flags Windows license bypassers/generators as malware and the reason given on their website was (when I last checked a few years ago) something along the lines of "these tools are often bundled with malware."

So... yeah... Meh...

Use everything at your own risk, basically. :steamsad:
