Difference between revisions of "Scarlet Nexus"

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
(Tose confirmed as a developer on the demo splash screens. As they're a company known for secrecy and not disclosing what they make, this makes their involvement significant. This is similar to World of Final Fantasy.)

Notes

  1. Unreal Engine 4 engine build: 4.25[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/775500/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (775500) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
