Can't Start Game

Post by EarthvLava17 » Wed Dec 27, 2017 4:24 am

I can't start the game, everytime i try to, i get a error that says "The item 'Superfighters Deluxe Launcher.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly', same thing happens when i don't use the shortcut, any way to fix this? :|

I've heard that Windows Defender deleted the launcher from multiple players yesterday. Your error message simpy tells that you don't have the launcher anymore. All you can do is install the game again. :/

Just a little of logic is needed.
Now that you know the antivirus is removing the file try to exclude the launcher from being recognized as a threat, recover the deleted program from the quarantine or if the file is completely deleted redownload the launcher and avoid the antivirus from destroying it again by temporarily disabling it and when you've excluded the file reactivate your antivirus.

Oh boy, I found a way to play the game again! The catch is - you will be offline till you install the launcher.
You have to go to your Superfighters Deluxe folder and start Superfighters Deluxe. Trust me, it works.
