Notes

  1. Unity engine build: 2019.2.5f1[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>/427880/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (427880) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    Assisted user over Discord with an issue whereby a legal copy of the game would silently crash on startup, and no solution he'd come across worked for him. The user eventually discovered the solution was to force the game to run windowed.
