HELP! just downloaded the AE Installer and i cant access my saves

Hi guys, so i just bought Oni for PC after talking about it with a friend and how awsome it was when we played it on ps2. I literally just beat the game and of course it repeatedly crashes during the credits and last video. so I downloaded the AE installer so that I make it pass the credits and unlock my cheats. I have fully installed the AE and opened up oni full screen on it and noticed that all may saves are missing... Im sure its just me not knowing how to properly set it up but i really dont know if i have it in me to start from the tutorial again. Please help I just want my cheats so i can start playing with the mods.
Thanks for your help ahead of time

You know, one thread would've been enough wink

You could try to manually copy the persist.dat from your normal Oni folder to the AE-subfolder. If that doesn't help there's another problem. Showing us the startup.txt and debugger.txt from the AE-subfolder might help then.

Hmm.  persist.dat is what tracks your progress, so if you don't have that, then you have no progress to bring over to the AE.  If you run Oni, then it will create a new persist.dat and then you can edit it with a save-game editor to enable all savepoints, cheats, etc.  However, you don't need cheats enabled to play mods.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

I know its so strange. the only one I have is the one already in that folder. But when I run oni without using AE all my saves are still there... It really makes no sense to me. I dont know how it was recording my data without a persist.dat but since i really have no idea how to edit the one that AE created I'm kind of debating just replaying it again lol... at least its an awsome game right...

Are you on Vista, by any chance?  See this thread if so.

Re: HELP! just downloaded the AE Installer and i cant access my saves

You should search your computer for "persist.dat".  Because it must be hiding somewhere, along with startup.txt and key_config.txt.  The fact that all the files that are created by Oni itself are missing indicates that a Vista-like issue is occurring here where all the program-created files are going somewhere else.  Maybe if you're using a shortcut to open Oni, you'll find them next to it.
