Q: What the hell is CYPEST?
A: CYPEST is an arcade / skill game. As a virus you are hacking into different servers. You try to avoid the defense systems to reach the level end.
Really cool: You can compare your points you've scored with all around the world and see where you are on your continent, your region (for example Western Europe) or in your country.
Currently the game is under development. Current status: soon we are in the alpha phase!
Q: I'm having trouble with the game. What can I do?
A: If this FAQ doesn't help you, contact us.
Q: The game will not start!
A: Make sure it is a PC running Windows 7 or later. You need the latest drivers for your operating system. If that is the case, look at log.txt in the game folder. It would have to create the game as soon as you want to start it. If this information does not help you, send us the log.txt with information about your system by e-mail.
Q: Does it run on Linux?
A: No, not at the moment.
Q: How much does this game cost?
A: Currently it is free of charge. There will be a 20-Level version, which will always be free of charge. If there are enough players who like the game, we develop it further. We don't know yet whether this will happen.
Q: Why do I have to register in the game?
A: The fun of the game is created by comparing it with other players. By registering you have a fixed account, you can play on different computers and compare yourself in the highscore with other players.
Q: Which data is saved by you?
A: As little as possible. Your email address, your password, your username and what you achieve in the game at points. Each time you connect, the IP will still be transmitted to detect possible misuse of your profile.
Q: Are my statistics also saved?
A: Only on your PC. The statistics in the game are your personal statistics. They don't concern us or any other players. If you delete your profile on your computer, it will be lost forever. Your score in the levels will be retained.
Q: I forgot my password. What now?
A: Don't panic! If you start the game and have to log in, you can reset the password when you log in. Here you will be redirected to a website. All you have to do is enter your email address. Then you will receive an e-mail with a code-link. If you click on the link, you can enter a new password.
Q: I live in another country now. Can I change that in the game?
A: Yes, of course! You can change it in the game or here on the website. In the game, you go to profile and then to location. On the website you have to log in and then you click Settings in the menu.
Q: I see the language "English" in the profile. Can I change that?
A: Not at the moment. The game and the website are designed for multilingualism, but that requires more players.
Q: My score won't be transferred to you? What's going on?
A: Is your computer connected to the Internet? If so, you should check the firewall and/or the virus scanner. These programs have, for whatever reason, something against it when it comes to viruses in a program.
