Hi guys, just came back to take a look at how things are going and I am happy that you are still keeping the community active. Last time I thought nobody was still improving the game!
I don't play any more but the idea makes me happy :)

Thank you all so much, this is literally the only game I can enjoy anymore. Just wish my namesake was in the game, seems very complicated to implement though. All the best!

Possibly the new DeckDll.dll was build using old source files.
Anyway for those you want to play sealed get this DeckDll.dll posted by Korath here which has all latest changes and put it on your main file:
download/file.php?id=51714
and check this post of how to make sealed work decently manually: viewtopic.php?f=112&t=30220&p=247117&hilit=sealed#p246954

I just tried the new version and encountered an "interesting" issue. When I start the duel the screen vanishes and Magic becomes a background task according to the task manager. So it is "still there", allocating resources and so on, but I can't do anything.

No idea whether this also occured with the December version, as I missed that update.

Any idea what could be wrong or missing?

Good idea, but doesn't look like. I went to C:\Program Files\Windows Defender and ran
Code: Select all
PS C:\Program Files\Windows Defender> .\MpCmdRun.exe -Restore -Name EUS:Win32/CustomEnterpriseBlock -All
No quarantined items.
Interestingly the same issue occurs now with my old development version, so "something" changed systemwise...

thanks to the team for another great release!! expecially for completing the old classic sets ice/alliances. Its a pleasure to have the cards available to play with that fantastic art over the board (even if the cards are not the best of the game).Also thank you Aswan for the coverage.csv file where we can see these stats and the hard work involved to complete the sets!
Congratulations guys!!! You are doing a great job!!! Thanks for your patience and time improving the game!

M'kay, I found a solution but I am baffled why this works. Maybe Korath has an idea. In case somebody else encounters this issue I will describe what happened, what worked and what didn't work.

When starting the duel the card back on the left is shown, then the program becomes a background task and vanishes.

What works: run it as administrator. Again, no idea why this makes a difference.

What didn't work:
    Starting Windows in Safe Mode: didn't make any difference.
    Change compatibility settings: depending on the choice the program wither crashed immediately (Windows Vista and newer) or started as a background process happily allocating memory in handy 5mb chunks until it got killed.
    Run System File Checker: run "sfc /scannow" from a command prompt with admin rights, then reboot. It fixed some files but this didn't make a difference.
    Run Deployment Image Service and Management Tool: run "dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" from a command prompt with admin rights, then reboot. This didn't seem to do anything.
I found the latter two here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/an-app-is-suddenly-running-in-background-instead/759c8ea2-49d4-4315-8101-2b25dc851b2d

The notification via mail doesn't really work for me...

On my second local harddrive, i.e. not the one used during boot, in the folder "D:\Program Files (x86)".

I collected one more data point in the meanwhile involuntarily. It seems like opening a save game that is deemed too old causes this issue going forward. This behaviour seems to be linked to the user, not to the machine. Now that it happened I remembered that I has the same issue the first time this happened.

FWIIW, before the program vanishes in the background I see the back of the big card on the left side of the screen. So, I click Start duel, the players are shown, the card is shown and then nothing sensible happens anymore.
