We are aware that McAfee is false flagging the game as a virus.
It is due to the encryption we use to protect the .exe from hackers.

You can see the VirusTotal score here, https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file...6a9098fa669df44acd6d9b87d4f50567a3e/detection
The 2 that also flag it on the Virus Total don't like the encryption.
We are working with McAfee to resolve this issue, for now, add the game to your exceptions list.

Like seriously, who still uses mcaffee, it just worse protection than just using windows defender..

Used it for years and have never ever had a problem. Jack will surely get this latest issue resolved quickly.

Waiting on McAfee. Can take 3-5 working days for them to look at it.
Just ignore the warning and allow the program.

McAfee is not that good btw. Windows Defender does just as good.

Seit dem letzten Update!
Virenprogrammberichte!
Was steckt dahinter oder wo liegt das Problem?
Wenn ich die vier Programme deaktiviere, kann das Spiel gestartet werden!

I don't think it won't. Because the application signature would be on low priority. But, the better solution would be to get rid of that and use proper antivirus :)
Use either Windows Defender or another free edition antiviruses.
But, if you wish to keep the current, then I can't force you to change another one.
