I think it was Mac support? Not sure though.

Angry

Whatever it was, it deleted my Profile, my saves, and wiped out my achievements, although the achievements are still saved on Steam.

I haven't fired the game up yet but maybe i'll wait if its a buggy update. Did you do the normal steam fixes to try to get your save and profile ect back?

So i just fired up the game. It now has a display config dialog that comes up on start that is new. I also lost my saves, settings, in game achievements and profile but this really isn't that big of a deal considering the way the game is.

For me it's even better. Now it boots in demo mode. I can't access Creative mode, for example, as it tells me to buy the game.

Important information about the patch today!

Hey guys!

We sent Steam an update but because of a brain fart I had copied the wrong executable (the non-Steam demo build) when I packaged the files.

We have sent a new update to Steam, and hopefully they will have time to fix it today. No news about the Mac build, though.

About profiles, save games and achievements: Previously the game stored these inside the Steam apps folder (Steam\steamapps\common\Harvest Massive Encounter) but the game is now looking in your user AppData folder (Users\<your name>\AppData\Local\Harvest). It should copy these automatically, but if your profiles are missing please check if you have to move them manually.

I feel like the loser of the day for causing you these problems

Cool Before Steam was cool...

How about a stand-alone patch for those of us who supported Harvest all those many years ago?

No rush, take your time. You've got a lot of games on your plate

Thanks jeb_!

Found the files and transferred them over. I was about to uninstall and quit after this happened. At least my saves weren't wiped out.

This game has great potential, but seems like there are huge bugs which impede this title from really becoming a well received favorite.
