    :check: - Before updating to E6, make sure you are saved in the main bedroom of your manor at the end of Episode 5. Any other saves WILL NOT WORK, I promise. If there are other issues pertaining to saves, and you ARE NOT saved in the main bedroom of your manor at the end of Episode 5, your save is irrecoverable, and we apologise.


    :xmark: - Backup your files before updating! Occasionally files get corrupted, and making a backup might help prevent things going wrong!


    Please note: this game contains some light screen-flashing and shaking sequences, and mature content that may be unsettling to some individuals, including death, existential themes, and mild gore.

    Photosensitive mode is available in the game options, and other accessibility features are present in-game.

    Please stay safe when playing!

    - PATCHES -




    Regarding Converter & EP5 Saves being Corrupted:


    The Save File Converter was broken for a while. any file that was run through the broken converter may be corrupt and not convertible, it likely it will be fine, but you have been warned regardless.
    This will likely affect the whole Save Folder that was attempted to be converted if it does happen.

    If you have your Save Files on a separate backup use those.
    DO NOT use the Save File converter before updating to the latest patch available.
    After a successful conversion the Save File will be lacking a trainertype, please do the E6 starting event before doing anything else on that Save File.
    We apologise for any lost data due to this.

    Also to note: Please make sure to turn off the Jukebox if its on in your EP5 save on the EP5 build.

    Desolation now uses a different file format for Audio, therefore it will search for a file that does not exist upon launch on the EP6 build, you have been warned. This will cause your save to unable to be loaded.

    If you are struggling to convert your Save File, please go to this thread here
