Notes

  1. KiriKiri Z engine build: 1.2.0.3[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (more details).
  3. 3.0 3.1 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>/333600/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (333600) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
