Without wishing to sound more than necessarily offensive - can you put the problem in a way we can understand it?
no offense taken i wrote that after taking an all nighter so i understand if its difficult to understand basically when i start the game it says i have failed to pay homage to the lord and why would you try and hack this way when theres piratebay

i did find a steam_appid.txt thats blank i dont know if its supposed to be there or if theres supposed to be somthin in it

Also the exact pop up message is

Rawr!

"You have failed to pay homage to the kitten overlords!Shame on you!
Who tries a hack like this anyway when there's Piratebay"
and again id like to point out i bought this on steam not pirated from piratebay or any torrent sites

The reson you get the message is becuse your missing the id number in your text file. (how that happend i don't know) so the game think you hacked it and tells you that it think you hacked it. The message is good cause with out it the game would just have crashed. But now it's easyer for me to know what the problem is.

Create a file called kittensrule.txt in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dwarfs

This should solve the problem.

Make sure you spell it right. This problem can't be if you have this file in the right place

Ive tried a few times, ive even copied and pasted the kittens file with the number, and tried it with the file blank, neither way works for me.

ive placed the text file here, which i believe is correct C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dwarfs

still no luck ive reinstalled a few times as well

I am very sure its the exact same problem as the original post, is there any other way to get around it? i did put the kittensrule.txt in Dwarf folder under steam apps/ common , the message still pops up as swivelchair49 said it did, its the identical message, not sure whats wrong

Is there anything i put in the txt? if so what is it exactly, ive tried just the number and without the number, but is there other characters im missing?
