A few mods for the game have surfaced and I will do my best to share them around once they've been tested and approved. If you head over to the Showtime page and click on the 'Mods' tab you can have a look at what's currently available.
If you happen to have created a mod for the game then I'd love to have a look. You can email us or post it over on the Facebook forums. Cheers!

Version 1.0.6 is now available for download. A few major changes have been made to the game including the addition of 'Staff' which essentially replace the percentage based monthly upkeep for your studio. It is now up to the player to decide how much they wish to spend each month on certain aspects of their studio and movie making process. For a complete list of changes in this version click here
Also remember to check out the "Troubleshoot" tab on the Showtime page if you are experiencing any problems with running the game. I will be added in a 'Modded' version soon with mod-packs people have made for the game (including real world actors/directors/producers/screenwriters/studios, etc). Thanks and have fun!

Version 1.0.5 is now available for download. I've added in a heap of new events which appear throughout the game as well as some new character avatars and a few bug fixes. For a complete list of changes in this version click here
I've also updated the Showtime page with a "Troubleshoot" tab. Just a guide to fixing some common issues people may be having with the game (PCs - don't ya just love em!)
Also remember, you can update via in the ingame menu too. Just click "Check for Updates" to download a small patch. Also, the in-game editor can also be accessed via the shortcut or in the Showtime directory. A real-world mod is being worked on and I'll post it up here when its finished. In the mean time though have fun!

Version 1.0.4 is now available for download. As always, I've been hard at work at weeding out all the bugs. For a complete list of changes in versions 1.0.3-1.0.4 click here
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, with some of the changes made in the new version old save files WONT WORK with the new version. Please start a new game and enjoy the new features :) This should be the last time an update will change the save architecture of the game. I do apologise for any inconvenience.

Version 1.0.2 is now available for download in both Demo and Full Version forms. Thank you to all those who have submitted their bug reports, I will continue to weed them out as they come about.

Remember, to solve the OUT OF MEMORY error a lot of people are having on Windows 7 and 8 you will need to download the Microsoft ActiveX files available free here

I'm so glad a lot of people are able to enjoy the game! There are however some that can't and get the dreaded 'Out of Memory' error when starting up the game. It seems to be isolated to Windows 7 and 8.
UPDATE: We have isolated the issue and its due to a file registry restriction. The file, "FM20.DLL" is a Microsoft file required to play the game, it's normally shipped with copies of Microsoft Office but cannot be redistributed outside of Microsoft's own packages. SO! I will attempt to remove all reference of this file from the game, but in the mean time all you have to do is download the Microsoft ActiveX Control Pad from here and the game should work fine. Alternatively, I will try to have the file removed from the game by version 1.0.2 in a couple of days.

Don't forget, Showtime! releases next Sunday the 1st September at 12:00-noon AWST :) A demo and full version will go up at the same time and let the chaos begin! I cant wait to finally have it played by everyone and to get some feedback on what you would like to see in updated versions. I will support the game just as I did with Bestseller, so you can expect updates to come flowing out regularly with new features, tweaks and bug fixes. The release week is always the hardest so I do ask that everyone remains patient with me while I do my very best to provide you with the best experience possible. I hope to see everyone again on release day to try out the demo and have a bit of fun! Cheers

If you are running Windows 7 or 8 you may encounter this weird screen problem happening when you open Bestseller. It's an easy fix relating to Windows font sizing. Simply right click on your desktop and select "Personalize", "Display" (at the bottom left), and change your text size to "100% (default)". This should fix the problem. Happy gaming!
