Especially when there's an actual Ideas and Suggestions thread. And it's pinned too, so it should be almost bloody impossible to miss.

Hi folks

The facebook page for HotA teased new units more than a week ago.

Anyone has info? Maybe they forgot about their facebook following.

MapEd virus?

Hi, since I can't create a new thread as a new user, I thought I'd do it here:

Recently I wanted to create a map using the Hota 1.6.1 map editor and my McAfee identifies the .exe as a virus. VirusTotal gives 17 positive recognitions of this file as a virus. This is by far a minority and some of the big names (Kaspersky or Avast) don't recognize it as a virus, but I'm still hesitant to use it.

Any thoughts? Did I download a corrupt file for some reason? Or is it a known issue and I shouldn't worry about it?

I don't think anyone here could totally proof if there is or isn't a virus in that file. Modded known programs cause false alarms, this is very known issue with any modded products. I don't think there has ever been a Hota nor HD version which would have gotten a "100% safe status."

HotA FAQ, section 29, says:

My antivirus software warns me of potential issues with the installer file, or during updating HotA/HD-mod. Should I be concerned?

No, you should not. Most of the advanced market-leading antivirus suites usually have no issue with these files. Some of the lesser solutions, especially free ones and those developed in China, use the most basic heuristic analysis mechanisms, potentially causing false alarms with applications that in fact do not contain any harmful code. You may refer to virustotal.com and get confirmation that the bulk of existing antivirus programs find our files safe for use.
