Question: is this just a text game? From some of the responses above, I assumed there would be pictures/images. However when I play the game (only for a few minutes though) all I see is text and a navigation menu in the bottom left. Even when I return from the first work day and look inside or at my neighbour, nothing pops up and I just see things like ".........." and "oh wow, nice ass".

Am I missing something, do the images appear later on or is it all text? This is the first time I tried RAGS, so maybe I'm missing something? I tried both 3.0.60.0 and 3.0.59 .

Some games start out with a text crawl, but there is pictures. Maybe you need to open up the multimedia section in your RAGS player, or the RAGS game file isn't in the right place and can't find the pictures.

What do you mean with the last part; is there a specific place I should install RAGS player and/or the game file to? Right now I have both in my download folder.

EDIT: I also dont know what you mean with 'open the multimedia section in your RAGS player'. When I open the player (not the ragsdesigner), I have File, EDIT, Tools and Help options. Edit has quick load and save options, Tools has auto pause and copy to html options. I don't see anything else.

I would like to screen capture and show you but my shitop doesn't seem to do that. If you haven't changed anything from the download I would say download again, I had problems with files becoming unreadable with multiple RAGS installed that could be another problem.
I use 2.4.14 for everything, but most use 2.4.16; still runs games made in 3+ but some older can't be played in the newer.

Well, I tried downloading both 2.4.16.0 and 3.0.60.0. The first version doesn't work for some reason. I install the player, my windows framenetwork is 4.0 so that should be good. So I do nothing with the other files, the one that wants to install some sort of windows file? Anyway, then when I try to open the player nothing happens :S.
As for 3.0.60.0, that doesn't recognize the RAGS game file anymore. I really don't understand what's going wrong. This should be really simple; download player, install player, play game. But for some reason it's impossible on an otherwise up to date and stable machine :S

Well, I have a notebook with Win7 32 bit that only had 3.0.59 installed on it, and a Win7 64 bit machine that has had multiple versions up to 2.4.16 (currently). Both have run the game (and their version of Rags) without any apparent problem.

Maybe the problem is your OS version is not compatible with the version(s) of Rags you're trying to use?

I have Windows 7 Home-Premium 64, SP1. According to Speccy I also have:

.NET Frameworks installed
v4.6 Full
v4.6 Client
v3.5 SP1
v3.0 SP2
v2.0 SP2

Which seems to be good enough?

What I will say is that when I google RAGS game, google tells me that ragsgame.com might be hacked? Not sure where else I can download a ragsplayer from to try. Also, does the actual rags game (man in the family, in this case) need to be installed somewhere? Do I need to unpack it? Do I need any additional software?

Well the game doesn't need to be unpacked its already there. But do you click the file? If yes, consider starting up the 3.0.60 runner then start a new game from there. For my computer at least all those games are automatically being used by 2.4 so all other versions i need to use with the runner separately.

Well, I've run this rags game in 2.4, so it might not be only the Rags version. Also, I thought he said earlier that he had trouble just getting Rags to launch, much less open a game, but I suppose that could happen if you're double clicking the game file. I have had 3.0.59 crash before opening when I've tried to launch it by running the game file (which, incidentally, only happened that one time.)

Bellboy, did you download anything from Rags' website after seeing the Google 'hacked' alert? If so, did you run a virus scan on it before opening? If nothing else, I think Zagmut's Unfaithful game thread has a link to a web archive page to Rags 3.0.59 that 'should' be clean.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've only kept 1 version of Rags on my machine at a time. So if you have multiple versions, maybe you should uninstall all versions of Rags, then make a new install of whichever version you want to try?

I've downloaded the 3.0.59 version listed on a previous page. It's a map that already has everything unpacked and 'installed', so I just unzipped everything, ran the ragsplayer and used the program to open the game. This is what I get:

Hopefully you can see my screenshot. Now based on the text, I expected an image here, instead everything is blank. A few minutes later I spy on someone in the house and on my neighbour taking a swim. Again, everything remains blank. Is this correct? Am I expecting too much?

EDIT: OK! So in my temp folder, located in AppData/local I can clearly see pictures of girls that I didn't download. On is in bed, another is a girl by the pool. There are many more and it feels like these images are the exact part of the game that I'm missing. The questions is, how did this happen and how can I restore this?

EDIT2: using the download link from mega, I downloaded the file through my browser. Does that have anything to do with it?

EDIT3: I tried putting the game file in my appdate/local file, then run it through the rags player. Didn't work. Not sure why it would, but I guess that's not it either.

Nope, just directly downloaded from the link in the OP. Downloaded through browser, not mega sync or something. I did try to open it once (a previously downloaded version) but couldn't so I stopped trying.

There should be only 1 version of the game file, which was made using 3.0.60 version of Rags. When you use the OP link, you should get a Rag game file called "Man in the family 0.5" (without quotes), with a file size of 367,892 KB. Running the file, either by double clicking the file itself (which would auto-launch the RagsRunner) or by opening the Runner separately then open adventure from the file menu, should launch the game, which should start showing you pictures in the graphics window section of the Runner. Every location' should have its own picture, and people/events probably would show a series of them.

Yes, those sound like the images/pictures used by the game. I don't know how they got separated from the Rag game file for you. I DLed the 0.5 version on 2 different computers the same way you did, and both worked. I haven't tried recently to download it, so I don't know if the file changed.

@TheBellboy
The RAGS Player has always been picky about the versions of the components it requires to work correctly.

a. The .Net Framework:
The 2.x series of the RAGS Player requires .Net 2.0 SP2, while from memory the 3.x series requires .Net 4.5 which I noticed you did not have and I am not sure if .Net 4.6 is fully compatible.

b. SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2:
If you are using a 64bit edition of Windows then you may/will need to have both the 32bit and 64bit releases of SSCE installed, the 32bit release may need to be installed before the 64bit one.

c. A Media Player with the correct codecs installed:
The 2.x series of the RAGS Player requires Windows Media Player which may be disabled/missing in more recent versions of Windows. The 3.x series is meant to use whichever Media Player is set as your default as long as the required codecs are installed.

I check out point A, and I have a 4.5.2 and a 4.6.1 version installed, so that should be good enough. I'll try installing SQL Server Compact 3.5 sp2.

As for point C, which codecs do I need? I dont think I have windows media player, I have VLC media player. But since I have version 3.0.59 I guess thats good enough? I don;t know which codecs I need though, doubt I have anything besides the standard ones.
