Q: I would like a free/discounted copy of your game for review or
other purposes, would you consider giving me one or several?
A: We receive reviews and other kinds of exposure already from
people who have paid for legitimate copies of the game. Please do not
send us requests like this, they will be ignored.
Q: What's your policy on creating/sharing monetized gameplay videos on
sites like YouTube?
You can create Let's Plays and other gameplay videos and monetize them
however you want. We don't own your video content.
Q: When I try to play Barony, I just get a message box with some
critical error nonsense! What should I do?
A: Check your install directory for a file called log.txt, open it, and
read it. Often times there will be an obvious clue as to why the game
failed to load, and a common solution is to simply update your video
drivers and try again. Otherwise, please send us an email and we will try
to help you with your problem. Thank you!
Q: I've found a bug in the game, where should I report it?
A. We maintain an official Bugtracker
for the game on GitHub. We'd be
happy if you used that instead of just shooting us an email since those
tend to get lost over time, whereas filing a bug report on the tracker
will allow us to keep track of it forever.
Q: I see on your website that Barony is now open source! Does that
mean the whole game is free to download and share with others?
A: No, the original game assets (models, sounds, music, art, etc.) are NOT
free to share with others as they are still under copyright. Only the
source code is free, so you can make game mods and share them with others,
but you cannot download the entire original game for free.
Q: This game is hard, is it actually winnable? Is it just based on
A: Yes, it is winnable, and no, your ability to win is not luck-based. At
its core, Barony is about risk management, and with more experience you
will be better able to gauge risks and make safer choices to survive.
Q: Can you include an easy mode in the game?
A: There are numerous customization options and cheat codes you can
use to reduce the difficulty yourself, if you wish.
Q: Would you please add this favorite new feature of mine? I promise
A: We believe you, but we're working on other stuff right now, so we
probably don't have the time. Sorry. You can probably add it yourself or
convince others to do so on one of our many discussion boards.
Q: Are there any new updates coming in the future?
