Try this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Osiris\OsirisNewDawn_Data

It might be different depending on how you installed the game.

Osiris Team, after update the game is dead. It crushes every single time I'm trying to create new character.

EDIT: I deleted everything from OsirisNewDawnSave folder in which was only clear folder, but it worked.

When you are in there you should have a id fx 76561198013665163 and in there are your saved game. Remember to copy and paste your character on the desktop or somewhere else, so your sure that your not loosing anything.

I have problem to use the forge.I press use it and the game stuck about 0.5 second and no craft window appear.Then I press use again , it told me that i can't use because other player use it and there's nobody in my private server.So I can't craft anything now lol.
--- the update told that the developer delete all universes and characters because they aren't support new game system in this patch :)
kittihokk2010 Jun 24, 2017 @ 8:20am
