Hinterland Raphael van Lierop Posted October 31, 2015 Hinterland Share Posted October 31, 2015 UPDATED:Mac "El Capitan" Save Loss Fix -- Hotfix to v.284 (Mac only)Hello, Recently, we discovered that a small number of Mac players who had updated their Mac OSX to "El Capitan" had subsequently lost their save. After investigating, we discovered that El Capitan reset the default location for save files. We believe we have a fix for this issue -- we are forcing El Capitan to save the game in a specific directory -- which we're rolling out in a Hotfix to v.284. This fix is only for the Mac version of the game. Details below. With this fix, it should now be safe to update to Mac OSX "El Capitan", without risk of losing game saves.THE LONG DARK HOTFIX to v.284 FOR MAC PLAYERSv.284 updates the Mac version of The Long Dark, to restore save files not found after upgrading to El Capitan. Saves will now be located here for Mac players: /users/username/.local/share/Hinterland/TheLongDark v.284 will automatically restore old saves from: /users/username/Library/Application Support/Hinterland/The Long Dark /users/username/Library/Application Support/unity.Hinterland.The Long Dark Note that v.284 will not overwrite or delete any data. If El Capitan users have created new saves, manually check the above two paths and copy the contents to the new save location: (/users/username/.local/share/Hinterland/TheLongDark). NOTE FOR PLAYERS TRYING TO RECLAIM LOST SAVES:Please note there is a chance that this v.284 update will restore saves that were previously lost due to the El Capitan update, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee this will work for everyone, as all these changes are being made on the OS-level and have nothing to do with The Long Dark itself. For more info, or to follow up with additional issues, please check the Technical Issues sub-forum. Thank you. - The Hinterland Team-----------ORIGINAL MESSAGE:Please be advised that we've heard from a few community members that upgrading to Mac OSX "El Capitan" may result in save games from The Long Dark being moved or deleted. We're investigating the issue, but until we know what's going on, please be advised that upgrading to El Capitan may affect current in-progress Sandbox games.- The Hinterland Team Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
