How to Install Telepath RPG: Servants of God

Since the release of the AIR build of Telepath RPG: Servants of God, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to install the game. This post will stand as the definitive guide to doing just that. This post primarily concerns installation of the game in Windows, but the process for installation in Mac and Linux is similar.

Step 1. Download Adobe AIR.

Note for Linux users: Telepath RPG: Servants of God runs on Adobe AIR 1.5, which is supported on Linux. AIR support for Linux is only discontinued starting with AIR 2.7–simply download and install AIR 2.6 and you should be fine.

Step 2. Install Adobe AIR. If the installer says that you already have Adobe AIR, skip to Step 3.

Step 3. Download the game. As you can see in the picture above, the file name should be Telepath RPG Servants of God.air. If your file looks at all different from that, make sure you are downloading the demo from this link.

NOTE: if you are using Internet Explorer, it will download the file as if it were a .zip file! You can see this stupid behavior in the picture below. Avoid downloading the game with Internet Explorer if you can.

If you must download it using IE, however, here is how you can run the installer:

(1) right-click the downloaded file and roll over the option Open With; (2) select Choose Program from the bottom of the list; (3) pick Adobe AIR Application Installer as the program to open the .zip file with. You should then see the “Getting ready to install” dialog from Step 4.

Step 4. Open the file once it finishes downloading. You should see the dialog box above, with the words “Getting ready to install the application …”

Step 5. It will ask you if you want to install–click the button that says Install.

Step 6. By default, the installer will put the game in C:\Program Files (x86) and add a shortcut to your desktop after it finishes installing. It will also run the game automatically after installation. Hit Continue.

Step 7. Wait a minute or two while it installs the game.

Step 8. You’re done! The game will launch automatically. If you’re in Windows and you need to launch Telepath RPG: Servants of God again later, it’ll be in the Start Menu (as shown above). You can also go in and run the game’s executable from the install folder (as shown below).

That about covers it. If you follow all of these instructions and you still encounter a problem, send me an email and I’ll do my best to help you.

    Would like to note that explorer will not download the file as .air but rather as .zip and so will not work

    Hey Sam, thanks for the heads-up! I’ve just updated the guide with this information and a way you can still get the installer to work.

  • Daniel

    Another way, that I used to get the game to work is just simply change the title of the game after download from .zip to .air. For those who can’t figure out how to change titles, just click on the title portion of the fill a few times.

    Nick: follow Step 3 above to get the actual game. The zip with instructions just tells you how to unlock the full version after you’ve downloaded and installed the demo.

  • nick

    i cant get the demo downloaded though everytime i try i get a page that says connecting but it never loads

  • nick

    also when i get the run/save screen and i right click nothing pops up

    You mean, you click the link and Internet Explorer gives you the option of running the file or saving it? Just hit “Save.”

  • nick

    Try following Daniel’s suggestion below and just rename the file from Telepath RPG Servants of God.zip to Telepath RPG Servants of God.air.

  • nick

  • nick

    alright i finally got it and i would like to share this for anybody who ends up trying to download with internet explorer.. adobe air was not working for me so instead of continuing to try and open with air i opened it with internet explorer instead and worked

  • Usaboy95

  • CraigStern

    You need to follow the instructions you received when you purchased the game. It should tell you exactly how to activate the full game. If you have any problems, just email me.
