View Full Version : How to kill the spam at closing the game? (Before you go please share your thoughts)
04-26-2012, 12:01 PM
Whenever I finish playing and closing the game I get a pop up window with a title "Before you go please share your thoughts" and it wants to send gathered info with screenshots and who knows what else to somewhere.
How can I uninstall this spyware-like thing to keep the game playable? It is very annoying that I always have to click on the "Don't send" button.

Hmm, mine just says "Would you like to close Universe Sandbox?" I choose "Exit" or "Cancel" and that's it.

Is the dialog appearing every time?
The share your thoughts dialog should appear when you exit Universe Sandbox the first two times and then once every 7 or 8 exits. It shouldn't appear every time.
It's not spyware. If you do type in a message it just send me that message (along with your log files if the box is selected) and their contents are totally transparent. If you click 'Don't Send' it sends out nothing.

Not every time, it is appearing like 6x from 10 times after I finished playing.
I will never click the "send it" so how can I disable (if not a "spyware") this spam? I can't find any checkbox.

Anyone please? :(

There's currently no way to disable it. Although I've just made a change to the code so that a user will only ever see this dialog 10 times once I post a new update to Steam.
So if you run Universe Sandbox more than ~70 times you won't see the dialog anymore. Does that work for you?
Although I won't be releasing the update until sometime next week (and it's just a few minor bug fixes; nothing new).

10 times is still too much (about 3 would be enough imo) but better than it was, so OK I guess. Or it could be 10 or endless like it is now but after the window popped up 3 times let the users select with a checkbox they never want to see this again. So at the first 2 times there is no checkbox at all, and when it is popping up the 3rd time there should be either a checkbox or a button "Never show this any more". Thanks a lot.

A checkbox is a good idea but it would be better to spend time on new features like that in the full rewrite as the current code base is basically dead.
How many times have you seen the message? Haven't you already seen it at least 10 times?

Huh, I have had the game for a while, and I have never seen this; not that I remember anyway.

@MST3K: It's OK you have the game but have you ever played? :D
@Dan Dixon: Can't tell how many times I've seen it, but im sure more than 10x.

All you have to do is press the button "Don't Send".

No-no, not that. I want to close the game and not starting to hunt for "dontsend" buttons. :) This happens AFTER I closed the game.

Haha now it is even better. I got this spam right after STARTING the game too. Hilarious. Now not only spamming after we closing it but at the starts too. And it is still at the Steam Store.
