Hi, I know the steam version of the game isn't perfect, but I still want to report this because I find this especially strange. I don't think it started happening after the update on steam, but one day I tried running the steam version and it said the preloader was missing. So I verified the files in steam, but running the game again just gets Norton pop-ups telling me it's considering whether a file is Heur.AdvML.c, and then determines the simpreloader.exe is Heur.AdvML.c and quarantines it. I'm just confused since I have done nothing in my knowledge that would get the preloader flagged, and not some part of the game itself. Anyone have any suspicions or is there something bigger going wrong here?

This is just the Heuristics, which can easily generate false alarms.

Anyway, I recommend downlaoding Simutrans from SF. We even provide MD5 checksums for testing.
