Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 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>/712190/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (712190) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. 10 GB is the HDD requirement for the Deluxe Edition. The EGS version has no official storage requirement.
