If you find any bugs, please send me an email with the following information:

  • What the error was. If you get a program failure prompt, please email me the Novus.exe.log file produced in the installation directory.
  • What you were doing when the error occurred

UPDATES 0.2.3 -

  • Added the language switcher functions
  • Fixed a bug in the best case HR calculation
  • Changed the team storage file storage method to not rely on tags

UPDATES 0.2.2 -

  • Changed all wxComboBox widgets (drop down menus) read only
  • Fixed a reset error in the total descretionary spending total calculation
  • Tried to prevent index errors when calling for the novus_pkg.Q_data.CombineData method by not allowing the call when the year is 7.
  • Changed the video file search algorithm to avoid having to load the win32api module. This process is now handled with a series of dialogs.

UPDATES 0.2.1 -

  • Changed the Lesson Select button layout
  • Added label text wrapping to the Lesson Select button layout
  • Added a "Game Overview" button to the How-To video list
  • Added a "Total Capital Expenditure" on the finance panel for rounds 1 and 4
  • Changed the Market Summary html files for blank decisions panels to notify users that they will not have to make a decision for that year. I haven't found an elegant solution to hide these panels, so this is a workaround.
  • When the number of production cycles are changed, the feedback below now also shows the corresponding market share.


  • Added the Market Summary Content to the game
  • Added the General Information and Instructional Videos
  • Fixed a glitch in the best case scenario for round 6
