    send them the link

    but it's detecting the packer, meaning it's not malicious, it just uses the same packer that many malicious programs use to hide themselves

    You have enabled potentially unwanted applications. The file detected is packed with Themida, a packer that is often misused by malware to evade detection. If you are certain that a file detected as a potentially unsafe/unwanted application is downloaded by legit software, simply exclude it from detection. V4 will alert you with a yellow alert window in the case of usafe/unwanted applications and will always offer you an action to take (e.g. Disconnect / No action).

    A better option would be to exclude that game from http filtering, put a cross in it in web browsers. Although I'm not sure if it's such a great idea false positive wise to be detecting anything packed this way, that's ESET's choice.

    To puth things right, if the vendors were building Themida-packed applications properly, they wouldn't be detected. Oreans, the vendor of Themida, already agreed with the rules for Themida detection. It's not at all that every Themida-packed file is reported as an unwanted application ;)

    If you develop applications and use Themida to protect them, please PM me with a link to the website where the application can be downloaded from and we'll provide you with more details.

    the game is in Japanese FYI. Since I cannot send a pm could you please post details on how to allow the game. Thanks Marcos

    Since you're referring to that game and not your own application packed with Themida, I can only suggest you the following:
    - disable unwanted applications. You must have enabled them intentionally during installation and thus you agreed with detection of packers often misused by malware as well.
    - exclude that url and the whole game folder from scanning
