Oh no! ;_; Antivirus programs can be odd that way

Mine too. My F-Secure is screaming at me everytime I tried to open RMV.

AVG quarantined a file for me, too.
Fortunately, I was allowed to flag it as a false positive, and AVG restored the file to its rightful place, and the program runs.

Avast says nothing.

It's not the dev's fault that your antivirus treats a commonly used development tool (node: https://nwjs.io/) as a malware. Just whitelist it.

I beg to differ, seeing as how several people have this problem as well. It might have been an unforeseen problem, but that's why the update should have been tested first before it was released.

I have to stand up here. Antivirus reactions are always unpredictable and may even differ from computer to computer. For example during the betatesting my Avast didn't say anything about MV 1.6, while someone else's yelled Alert.

It is what it is. Unforeseen problems occur.

The biggest problem with viruses is that it's very hard to avoid it, because when an antivirus searches through the file, it checks its "DNA" to see a matching byte sequence (since that is the only way to check binary files like dlls). And when it finds a byte sequence, it flags it as a malware.

And for example nw.js has some pretty powerful abilities in terms of file manipulation, so I wouldn't even wonder it gets flagged as malware just because it has a byte sequence that matches a malware's "signature bytes".

Playing one of the two RM2k3 games I was best known for back in the day, one I made in the Spring semester of my Freshmen year in college like 15 years ago, feeling all kinds of ways about it. I have not played this game in WELL over 10 years. I feel a million years old RN.
One of these days, I need to find/figure out how to replicate the Brave/Default system. Heheh...
Are ReSTAFFs a thing anymore? Just curious, not sure if this is thread-worthy, so just musing here
