.Net 4.7
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:06:05 pm »
just a question, When you release the game, will there be a .Net 4.7 installation distributed as part of the release?

Ignore that, i was thinking of the VC++ redistributable install that pops up sometimes when installing things.

Hello!

We plan to switch to .NET Core closer to release. It's a cross-platform open source implementation of .NET Framework developed by Microsoft together with .NET community. It's faster and better, requires no installation and should be included into the game binaries. So the game will have almost no special dependencies.

Regards!

Yes, it has not very polished installer and Microsoft working on improving it.
Windows 10 with Creators update already contains .NET 4.7.
If you're on Windows 7/8, you need to install prerequisite first https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55170 and then use .NET Framework 4.7 web-installer http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=848158.
