Other Problems
Can't use the check for updates and options links in game (Does not work).
Is the new beta update through the game link or website.

Hi,
thanks for testing the beta.

The first error is caused by the 64bit Windows trying to load a 32bit dll.
This error should be fixed with the latest beta version!

The second error is a more general problem:
The "old" version of Diamond Caves 3 stores all data in the program folder. With Vista and Windows7 this is no longer possible because of missing administrative rights.
I am currently thinking of a way that works with both worlds: Existing users should be able to play all installed levelgroups - new users (with new windows versions) should be able to play the game as well.

Please try to install the latest beta to see if the first problem (BadImageFormatException) is gone.
bye,
Peter
