Automation Crashes/Exceptions on Launch

Quite a few people are getting various crashes/exceptions on launch, as well as odd installer/download issues.

I apologize if I have not gotten back to you, I have been a bit unwell and havn't been able to keep ontop of things.

One issue that has come up, is people trying to play Automation on older computers/laptops that do not have a graphics device that supports Pixel Shader 3.0. Please take a look at this forum post that covers our estimated minimum specifications required for Automation (people have got automation working with lower spec computers).

I am working on an updated version of the Launcher that does a quick systems check, to make sure you have a graphics device good enough to support Automation, and that you have enough disk space to download the installer. It should be out in the next few days, until then please hang tight.

The one problem with PC's, is they have almost infinite variety, even the biggest names in the business can't guarantee there games will work flawlessly for everyone. I hope you can understand our situation, and that we are trying out best.

Also, you have to be connected to the internet, right?
