Release Notes

v0.1.0.24a - September 5, 2010

This update address some issues with the installer. See Changes below for more information.

We apologize for the steep graphical requirements. This will be addressed in version 0.2 where DirectX 9.0c and Windows XP support will be added, with Linux and Mac OS X support to come later.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Windows Vista or Windows 7
  • 1 GHz processor
  • 1 GB of system memory
  • Hard drive with at least 7.50 MB of available space*
  • Support for DirectX 10.0, Shader Model 4 and 256 MB of graphics memory

* Does not include space requirements of DirectX and Visual C++ Redistributable which may be anywhere from 20kb to 97.3 MB depending on what has been already installed.

What we install:

  • Synekism v0.1.0.24
  • DirectX Redistributable
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable


  • the installer will now abort if any minimum requirements are not met
  • operating system check has been added to the installer
  • the installer no longer creates a Start Menu folder as we do not yet know how to remove it properly upon uninstall - please remove it manually yourself after uninstalling any previous version - this will be fixed at a later date
  • the readme.txt file was empty - it will now include a copy of these release notes
  • the installer did not remove the Resources\Cursors folder upon uninstall
