Error when trying to patch?

Question:

I get an error when trying to patch, what should I do?

Answer:

The issues possible are: Your anti-virus program or firewall are blocking the connection to the patch server or the patcher does not have read or write permissions (try moving the client to the Desktop or another directory on your hard drive). Deactivate your anti-virus program or firewall or add the directory as an exception.

White screen when launching?

Question:

My game remains at a white screen when launching, what should I do?

Answer:

This issue can be caused by different things. Either you have an old client, the client does not have read or write permissions in its directory or it can't properly load the options. In most cases this can be solved by setting all of the options to 'Low' and set the resolution to '800x600'. You can change it after the game launched successfully. Alternatively, you can delete your Neuz.ini so the game creates a new one with the default settings.

Anti-virus software keeps deleteing the Neux.exe?

Question:

My anti-virus software keeps deleteing the Neux.exe when patching, what should I do?

Answer:

This is easy to fix, add the Neux.exe or the whole Entropia directory as an Exception to your anti-virus program. Your software is most likely deleting the Neux.exe because it detects it as a "False-Positive". Some software detect this because of our VMProtect encryption.

VMProtect is a software protection against reverse engineering.
