Issues fixed[edit]

Save game issue[edit]

The latest version of the game introduced local save files, but the player progress doesn't save properly and is lost after exiting the game.
Fix the local save file[1]
  1. Start a new game so the game creates the profile files.
  2. Exit the game, go to Saves folder inside your local profile folder and open tHPsave.sav file with Notepad.
  3. Replace the text inside with the text below and save the changes:

{ "avatar":1000000, "bans":null, "collectable":{}, "d_v":2, "health":0.0, "inventory":[], "kills":{}, "persistent":null, "position":{}, "seen_intro":false, "tokens":0, "unlocked_items":[], "world":{"severity":1.0,"time_of_day":5.00,"weather_time":94510.21093750}, "world_map":"eF5jYBjEQACNz4bGRwcN6AKjgBAAALmiAJc=", "xp":1.00 }

Notes

  • Use "unlocked_items":[1017,1008,1010,1019,1016,1009,1018] to unlock additional items in the store.

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>/322920/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (322920) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
