[Sticky] Game update instructions
- itch.io public beta participants: download the latest version via the web and unzip on top of your current install -- or, if using the launcher, make sure you're using the latest version of the itch.io launcher (18.7.0 or later) and reinstall the game. Again, the beta is available here.
- If you're having problems loading the game or are otherwise unable to get to the main menu, please try the following:
If you used the itch.io client to extract the game, hit Win+R (to open the "Run" box) and then paste the following into that box:
%appdata%\itch\apps\Aven Colony Beta\Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us\
If you downloaded it as a ZIP, navigate into the directory you extracted it, and then go into Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us .
In that folder you should see an executable named UE4PrereqSetup_x64. If you run that, that will install everything that the game needs - and you should then be able to run the game without issues!
- If that doesn't work, user satoru has also posted a very helpful master fixes thread in our forums.
- Steam closed beta participants (limited to media, streamers, YouTubers, and early beta participants from the closed beta prior to September): just exit Steam and restart to get the latest. Please keep an eye out for further updates; we're laser focused on bug fixes and have several more coming down the pipe in the very near future.
