Now that we have all of the logistics out of the way, lets dive in to our post about the recently released 1.2 update.
As all of you are probably very aware, Camp Buddy version 1.2 was released just last week! This update contained many bug fixes and improvements to the game, which can be found in the Patch notes section of our site – please check it out for more details!
We have also had some time to take in all of your feedback, and we want to address some common issues:
I did not receive an email with the game update/my update links expired.
All patrons and owners of the game were emailed with links to the 1.2 version of the game, and the download links that were sent out expired in 7 days and are no longer active. If you still have not updated your game, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a Patreon ID or purchase receipt so we can verify that you own the game. Please keep in mind that any download links we sent out will expire. Only request a new download when you are able to use the links right away please!
My game crashes when I try to load my saves from 1.1?
The 1.2 version of the game contains many bug fixes and new assets that affect the content of the game. Unfortunately, this may interfere with some of the save points you have set from the previous version of the game. Please try to load all of your saves from 1.1 so you can confirm which specific saves are causing the game to crash. You will need to remove these saves from your %appdata% folder on your computer. As much as we have looked in to this issue, these saves cannot be recovered. We apologize for the inconvenience!
The Android version of the game says “not installed”.
The Android version of the game is 2gb, so please ensure you have adequate storage on your device to install the new game. Also, please make sure you enable applications from untrusted developers in your system settings!
Some users had trouble even when they take these precautions, and some devices may react differently when you open the downloaded file from your browser vs. your system files. Please try opening from each of these locations if you are having difficulty.
If you are still unsuccessful installing the game, please send us an email at email@example.com and we will do our best to assist you!
The Android version of the game is stuck on the loading screen.
The game will take a while to boot up (especially for the first time). Please be patient!
My download is not finishing, or it says It is corrupted when I try to open it.
All of our downloads are distributed through a content delivery network to ensure consistent speeds for any user regardless of location. Please ensure your internet can handle large file downloads and that it will be uninterrupted during the download process. Your game will say it is corrupt if the download fails or if it is incomplete.
I can’t skip scenes in the game anymore.
Please make sure “Skip Unseen Text” is enabled. Sometimes this gets disabled when you update the game.
How do I install the update?
All you have to do is delete your old version of Camp Buddy, and download the new version! Your save data will be retained, so don’t worry about deleting it!
I hear you are looking for translators and I would like to apply.
We would like to make Camp Buddy as accessible as possible, regardless of language, however, we are not yet ready to begin translations of the game at this time. We will make a public announcement when we are ready to recruit translators!
Thank you all for taking the time to read this update. We are working hard to make sure we can resolve any issues so you all can have the best experience possible. We will make sure we keep you updated as we continue developing the Taiga route and the rest of the game!
Lots of love,
