Who is responsible for these installation errors? Does this installer completely hate Windows XP?
I downloaded the installation file (esfb100.exe) and a DOS window pops up and then shuts down in about 1 second. The MSI installer doesn't do jack. I have a 56K connection and downloading 90 MB files isn't too fun.
Just about every file I have downloaded from here is bad in some kind of way.
The game is great, but it may not be worth the trouble.
--and how about replying to the bot posts--

I have the exact same problem as vegetto you need to instal the custom game before you can play it, then i check at custom games and click on it, and the install option is indeed stil open, but then i click on instal and it says:

This game is already installed are you sure you want to re-instal it?

So wtf!?!?!?!?!?

Plz help, and if the team doesnt know a solution yet plz hurry to work on it cuz i dont think we are the only one with this major prob. :cry:
