    Warning:
    1. This app required Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) to launch PC client.

    2. Before you'll launch PC client for the fist time, it is highly advised to
      Add Program Exceptions in the Windows Firewall, because "unblocking" exception during transfer might cause connection lost.

      Here is a tutorial, how to do it (with images), for Win 7, 8, 10:
      https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/542-windows-firewall-add-remove-exception.html.

      Add permission for both networks (Private and Public).

      For all Windows systems (without images):

      When you'll not add Program Exceptions this error will be shown:

    Changelog for 0.819 (17\11\2018):
    • Fixed the problem of the server getting stuck due to the close command being processed before all data is written, when a game is closed after installation.
    • Network support is now initialized earlier and its status checked later, for faster bootup times.
    • Fixed the design problem that allowed the remote client to access the game list while it is being updated at boot.
    • Font widths are now cached under the glyph atlas, to potentially reduce the lag when messages are first drawn.
