A downloadable game for Windows

Download NowName your own price

In the game you play as a company employee forced to hack into peoples' bank accounts and steal their money. You have limited time to look at biographical details of each person and decide who you wish to steal from. You must juggle the impending threat of the police, your boss' satisfaction and try and earn enough to be freed by hacking and bribing your way through.

This is the first game I've done from start to finish that has been released. It started as a little side project while I was working on something else and it was mostly a learning experiment for myself but hopefully others enjoy it!

Pay as much as you want (if at all) and you can come back later and pay if you do like it. Or don't pay. It's called Robbing HUD after all.

Mac version coming soon!

what do I do at the start?

From the main menu you should click 'Play Game' and then read through the intro. At the end of that you should see a pop up with guidance. Once you've read through that you should close it and the game starts automatically.

Let me know if this isn't happening or if you meant something else and I'll look into it for you.

this is what I mean happens at the start. idk what to do from there.

Hi,

Thanks for the video, that was really helpful. It seems that it's not picking up the data from the SQL database as that's supposed to populate the list of people, but clearly you're not seeing that.

Do you know if you're running a 64-bit or 32-bit machine? This guide should help you if you're unsure how to check: http://www.howtogeek.com/236195/how-to-find-out-wh...

Could you confirm that you've downloaded the matching version of the game? There's a separate download for 64-bit and 32-bit and if you get the wrong one for your machine the SQL data doesn't get included. I'll update the game page to make this clear as well for others as I realise now it's not.

If you have checked that your machine matches the version you downloaded could you let me know whether you have a 64-bit or 32-bit machine and which operating system you're running please. Looks like Windows 10 but if you could send a screenshot similar to this one that would be great (although don't worry about highlighting it).

Thanks for your interest in the game and sorry you've had trouble so far but hopefully we can get it sorted for you soon.

All the best,

Ashley

OBS cant take a picture so here:

I'm using a 64bit windows10 system, and the game is also 64bit (x86)

That is very strange. The project should contain the files you need for the SQL database to work. Can I just confirm that you are extracting it from the archive before running?

I shall have a look at this as soon as I finish work and get back to you. Apologies for the troubles you've been having.

(Edited 1 time)

whenever I use WinRAR on a .rar game the EXE auto-extracts; so I doubt its the problem.

oh, and I tried redownloading the game bolth 64 and 32 bit. no fix.

Thanks for confirming that. Would you mind emailing me on ashleytwo[at]gmail[dot]com please? At present I can think it might be one of two different problems which I'll need to send you some files for. Once I hear from you I'll send over both possible solutions to you.

If it is either of those I'll update the game page as well but would be good to test and confirm.

I have exactly the same problem. I'm using x64 - Windows 8.1. The output_log.txt has plenty of problems concerning the database:

The strange thing is that the dll from the bold error message is actually there, and it is the 64-bit version (the exe was 64bit as well). I was using a version of your program where the .exe was from 08/10/16

If I can help solve the issue, contact me at ingowarnke@gmx.de.


Hello,

Sorry that you're also having problems. Thank you for the message, it's a great help.

That's what is stumping me at the moment. I know the DLLs are included so trying to establish why they don't work.

I'm away this weekend but when I'm back home tomorrow night I'll send you an email with a few ideas if you don't mind testing them out?

Thanks,

Ashley

@Ashley: Sure, send me an email, I'll try things out.
