Basic installation / voting / lag issues

1.1When I download the game, dreamms.exe is deletedTurn off Windows Defender by going into Windows Security > Virus & Thread Protection > Under Virus & thread protections settings. Click on Manage settings. > Real-time protection (off). Don't forget to turn back on.
Add the DreamMS folder to your exclusions (Virus & Threat Protection > Manage Settings > Add or remove exclusions > Add an Exclusion > Select the full DreamMS folder)

Updated thread Nov 2021 per November 2021 changelogs
  • Dream.ini is now integrated into Widget Manager and deprecated
  • Dream.ini settings can now be configured/toggled without re-clienting
  • Dream.ini settings are now preserved across patches
  • Widget window sizes, positions and settings are now preserved across sessions
How do I change the resolution?
Open Widget Manager from the UI and toggle between resolutions in the Client Mods tab.​

Run “Patcher” within your DreamMS folder to update to the newest patch files

Hello, everytime I execute the "Patcher" it closes and don't update the files, any solution? Thanks in advance
Might have to do a fresh re-install if you made sure your exclusions were sent for your Windows Defender and Antivirus.
