Proun website temporary move

My webhoster has disabled the Proun website, because it was generating too much traffic. I put an alternate server online, which can be found here:

temporary Proun website

However, it will be a few days until the highscores get back online!

Argh, I had no idea what "too much" was going to be, but apparently it has already been reached. :(


  1. The game crashes here after finishing a track, because the Highscores can't be loaded :(

  2. I didn't know that would crash the game too. When did you download the game? I made a fix for something similar, maybe you have an older version and maybe that fixes this as well?

  3. Yes, that version doesn't crash. Thanks!

  4. XD totalbiscuit made a vid about proun and everyone said it was down XD i was happy i downloaded it already

  5. why not setup the website at Amazon or Google Apps?

  6. Just wanted to let you know this game looks seriously awesome, I will be paying hopefully a "fair" price for you guys but I'm also a poor college student so I can't go too overboard hehe.

    Congratulations on the success and hopefully everyone that tried to download it will go back and find it again.

  7. Hey Joost,

    Hoe is't ermee? :) Je bent flink op weg sinds we met elkaar te maken hadden op de HKU (game audio). John 'TotalBiscuit' Bain heeft een filmpje gemaakt van je game met first impressions en gezien zijn viewers (260k+) zal dat wel een flinke druk op je site zijn idd. ik hoop je binnenkort te spreken.



  8. Hier is de oorzaak van je server problemen :P

  9. Yeah, I found the TotalBiscuit thing by now, totally awesome! He is usually incredibly cynical, but he really seems to love Proun! Awesome! :D

    I'm going to look for an alternative server then, but I am not that much of a network expert. Can Amazon or Google Apps automatically set up something with PHP and MySQL? I just have a couple of scripts I want to run, but I am not good enough at that to also setup an Apache server and such myself...

  10. you could try -, i found them to be pretty decent as its a cloud system its normally back up very quick, you just need an old host

    It may help it may not, shall have to take a look at TotalBiscuit's video

  11. Okay, I'm not sure what to do. The game crashes on startup. I get this error:
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BEX
    Application Name: Proun.exe

    Additional Information 4: 0dd154ca83726ec13f3da3b8a401f993

    The fault is in MCVCR80.dll, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled Visual C++ Redistributable 2010, and I've also reinstalled the game, deleting all remaining files after uninstall, and that same error still comes up. Running in compatibility for WinXP still results in the same crash.

  12. I replied to this question in the forum. :)

  13. Awesome game Oogst!

  14. Just had a very quick blast on this game, love it. I'm using it under WINE on Ubuntu 11.04. Works brilliantly at 1920x1080 at around 100fps. Nice work!

    p.s. please make a native Linux port.

  15. Joost,

    In principe heeft amazon een redelijk goeie deal dat je daar idd servers per uur kan betalen (voor zo weinig als $0,0092 per uur) zie

    Imho kan de HKU tijdelijk wel de bandwith trekken ^^ en anders hoor je het wel :P
