Just wanted to y'all know that ALL of my games have been updated and are now released as unpacked exe's. I was recommended to do this as a way to bypass virus false positives that I kept getting from my games, and that I'm guessing some of you have been experiencing, and it's the reason why I kept putting warnings on the game pages to let you know that these might be detected as viruses for most of you.

This means that the games now all come in .zip's that contain not only the games' exe's, but also data files that MUST be in the same location as the game, or else they won't boot up.

I apologize for the inconvinience, but it just saves me from having my games being detected as viruses for no apparent reason, therefore this is something that I'm going to be doing from now on. Thanks for reading this!

How do you do this? Some external program?

@Fish20

It's in the application properties. Click on the Windows tab, and enable the check box that says "unpacked EXE". That's it! No external program required for this.

I think unpacked .exe's may have to be the new normal because false positives are such a pain.
