When I start the UP I got this :)
is't that risky?
Please read the following articles to learn what "Windows Defender SmartScreen" is:

https://www.pcworld.com/article/3197443 ... ws-10.html
https://www.howtogeek.com/75356/how-to- ... windows-8/

Basically, SmartScreen blocks ALL "unknown" programs from starting, because they're unrecognized.

Unofficial Patch 1.5 is actively developed, and Minor Updates are released at least 1 time per month.
You can read the changes log here: https://www.ee2.eu/patch/changes/

This means, that the installer file and other executables in the patch change very often. Due that our community is rather small, the cloud-based protection (SmartScreen) always warns users that the program is "unknown", "not popular".

Besides that, sometimes anti-virus programs are throwing false positives, usually for the same reason (not too many active users).
Recently, Windows Defender Antivirus was detecting the Launcher files as malicious. After my submission, Microsoft has analyzed the file, confirmed that it's safe and removed from their detection definitions. You can read this post on twitter for more information:
https://twitter.com/EE2News/status/1237697354918174720

However, if you still don't trust in this project, you're not forced to use it. You should google and read reviews about Unofficial Patch 1.5 on other websites / forums to get opinion from other users if it's safe or not.

Minor update 157035 has been released!

Update Type: Compatibility Update. Changes list: https://www.ee2.eu/patch/changes/#157035

- New feature - Added a new option to UP1.5 Settings: "Remove 100 FPS limit (BETA)":
* Reduces the antiHiccupMinFrameTime (whatever it means) from 0.01 to 0.001.
* Fixes an issue, where the game could not use more than 100 FPS, even when V-Sync was disabled.
* Fixes a bug present on Windows 10 ver. 2004 (build 19041) and newer, where it's impossible to use more than ~64 FPS on NVIDIA GPUs.
* Improves the compatibility with the high refresh rate monitors and G-Sync / FreeSync.
* Please note that in order to apply this fix, UP1.5 Launcher modifies the game process memory on start. Your anti-virus software might block the Launcher executable and trigger a false positive alert.
- Tanks reworked (changed values from Minor Updates 157025, 157028):
# Base Health is now 200% of the original health. Base Damage is now 150% of the original attack points.
# The Egyptian unique unit (EIFV) has a reduced health boost to 175% and damage boost to 125%, due to a very fast reload time, speed and high attack points increased by the civilization bonus.
* WARNING: This update will make game playbacks played in epochs 11+ incompatible (they will hang/stop) due to incorrect synchronization. Game saves should not be affected.
- Fixed a bug, where a change from Minor Update 156021 (January 2018): "Disabled game icon flashing when any player joins/leaves the Multiplayer Lobby, when the game process is minimized" wasn't working for languages with supported "TranslateTextsSourceFile" (Polish, Italian), described in Minor Update 157019 (September 2019).
- Minor tweaks / volume fixes in "Audio playback (taunts) for certain messages sent in the Multiplayer chats" feature.
- Fixed a bug in the "Exclusive Content Downloader", where clicking "No" in the question about overwritting an existing file still displayed a successful / unsuccessful message. Thanks for the report to player "Bogdan".
