    UPDATE (JUNE 22, 2020): A SUBREDDIT POST CONTAINS THE STEPS AND FILES TO JUST GO AHEAD AND PLAY THE UB FUNKEYS GAME. THE LINK BELOW WILL TAKE YOU TO IT!
    Click here for the post!


    UPDATE (AUG 14, 2018 'Edit on Dec 28, 2018'): I AM AWARE OF THE x64 PATCH ISSUE. I CURRENTLY DON'T HAVE A x64 WINDOWS PC NOR A UB HUB TO FIND A WORKAROUND FOR THIS! FOR NOW IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK AND WILL HOPEFULLY SOON FIND A WAY TO FIGURE THIS OUT.


    This thread is for people who want the latest version of UB Funkeys (V5.0), but don't have a CD copy (of V5.0) or have the latest version of UB Funkeys available to them.

    Warning: Please DO NOT buy anything from Angus's lab with a credit card or any type of real money.

    READ Q&A IF YOU STUMBLE INTO ANY ISSUES!
    RUNNING THIS ON A VIRTUAlBOX IS NOT RECOMMENDED!


    [INSTALLING UB FUNKEYS]
    (If you have a UB Funkeys CD, install UB Funkeys with it instead to make the process much faster. Also, you can skip this if you already have a working version of UB Funkeys.)

    1. First, download UB Funkeys V4.8 file from the downloads section.
    2. Extract the files from the "UB_Funkeys_4_8.zip" either using WinRAR or 7-Zip.
    3. Run "Setup.exe" and follow the instructions (If your system needs access to some things during installation, please allow access to them to prevent any issues).
    4. Make sure to close the setup once you have finished.

    [REPLACING THE OLD FILES WITH THE NEW ONES]
    1. Make sure to have closed any running instances of UB Funkeys to prevent any issues.
    2. Download UB Funkeys V5.0 file from the downloads section.
    3. Extract the files from the "UB Funkeys 5.0 Paradox Green.zip" file either using WinRAR or 7-Zip.
    AT THIS POINT IF YOU HAVE ANY PREVIOUS SAVES FROM AN OLDER VERSION YOU PLAYED, MAKE SURE TO READ THE Q&A BEFORE CONTINUING WITH THE TUTORIAL!
    4. Copy the folder extracted from the "UB Funkeys 5.0 Paradox Green.zip" file to the "C:\Program Files" directory in your computer.
    5. Your system will ask if you want to replace some files, press "YES".
    6. Once done, open the UB Funkeys shortcut, plug in your UB Hub and start playing.

    SOON!

    Q: HELP, I GET AN ERROR WHILE INSTALLING THE DRIVERS DURING THE SETUP!
    A: This is normal and means that you are running a x64 bit computer. To fix this, download the x64 bit patch provided in the downloads section, extract the file and follow the instructions provided in the README text file.

    Q: I want to move my old saves into the update, what do I do?
    A: Copy your saves from "C:\Program Files\UB Funkeys\RadicaGame\data" and put it into the extracted 5.0 update folder in "\UB Funkeys\RadicaGame\data" and you can continue with the rest of the tutorial.

    LOL, no this page is 76 views. Probably most of them just got too exited to play it so then they never posted anything...

    Too bad my mom just threw away my Funkeys including all my UB hubs. :/

    Well, I have played UB Funkeys with no problems on windows 7 and 10. (To be more specific windows 7 was WIN7Ultamate and windows 10 was WIN10Pro)

    I guess it works if your computer makes it where the program thinks it is in XP then it works. (You can also do this manually, but I forgot how to do it)

    That only works if you have a 32BIT PC or a virtual box.

    Well that sounds dumb, probably because of Mattel only had 32 Bit PC's. :P

    Can you not run it in compatibility mode on Windows 10?

    No, but you can now download the patch from the post!

    BTW, compatibility mode is only for applications that refuse to run on windows versions that are not certain to that windows version. It is there to run it even though it does not want to. In most cases it works, but in little cases (like this one), it does not.

    Yeah, you can totally play offline! Unless someone makes it where they are hosting servers for it someway then you could play online. This is just so people can play offline and play their childhood game like me.
