I just bought Bombaman. Nice game, great music, but the CD that was given with it looks like it hasn't been tested. All filenames are upper cased 8.3, with '~1' at the end of them, and the cd contains a virus; many strange named executables on the website folder contain the W32.Netsky.P virus:

etc.

Plus, the level editor crashes here, but this might be due to the 8.3 name RESOURC~1.INI of which i don't know the original name of.

hmm that's really bad Sad The original files for the CD were completely tested & 100% virus-free. The first series of CD's are correct too, assuming by the date/time of those files you probably have a 2nd series. Complaints should go to Sunrise and you should demand a new CD.

There are problems with the editor on win98se (but I used it a lot on normal win98). The RESOURC~1.INI file that jooneman was talking about should really be called resources.ini, but on win2k the editor doesn't crash on it...

That's pretty bad allright! I've already mailed Sunrise about it to warn them about this. The first series of the CD were correct, no problems there, so I guess something went wrong with the second batch Sad
Anyways, everybody with a corrupted CD should go to Sunrise and receive a new CD. You can contact Sunrise through email (rhiep@msx.ch).

Sorry guys, but this is most unfortunate , i say everyone returns the cd.
I replace them naturally for free. But I am certainly not happy since I have a virus-protector for this virus and my provider claims that they have intercept possible infection.
Meaning this works not properly afaik

Maybe this ought to be posted on the frontpage news, to ensure everyone who bought it is notified of this. It's not good for the Sunrise image, I guess, but things like this can happen, I guess (again), and... Well, this can't go unnoticed. It's too dangerous (though I don't know exactly how harmful netsky is...).

It is even worse for the Sunrise image if people get infected because they WEREN'T notified...so I would say... post it
